The Update this Morning
A patch briefly hit the Hearthstone servers around 12:30 AM this morning and was quickly reverted due to it not working. The following changes were datamined:
- Unity engine update from 5.1.3 to 5.1.4.
- Card back localization changes for Tauren and Thrall. They had the incorrect release dates previously.
- Standard 1vs1 game in Scenario.XML had the SourceFingerprint attribute changed.
Zeriyah had the following to say on reddit.
Hey all, wanted to hop into this thread to let you know what's happening with this patch.
This patch was intended to be a hotfix to address some recent outages in the Hearthstone service. However, an issue arose where some users that patched encountered an error and were unable to log in. We reverted the patch to avoid further issues.
Players that are unable to log in should either Scan and Repair or exit Hearthstone and allow it to patch again to address this issue.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Hearthstone Emotes in Overwatch!
Our beloved Hearthstone emotes have made it into Blizzard's newest title, Overwatch. There are four hero emotes present in Overwatch which are used as Sprays. Sprays are able to be placed on the map and just like in Hearthstone, these emotes can be used as a form of bad manners.
The emotes are available for 75 credits each, which can be earned by collecting duplicates of other cosmetic rewards. We aren't sure if there's going to be some kind of cross-game promotion going on with Hearthstone and Overwatch in the future that may lead to free unlocks, but that'd be pretty rad!

Deck Spotlight: Chaos Control Hunter v2
Kharan brings us his Chaos Control Hunter deck this evening which has taken him to Legend and to the top 100 last season. The deck runs Reno Jackson which makes it a deck of singletons to allow for "maximal versatility" and won't give you "the same useless card two times in [your] hand."
Mulligan for low cost defensive cards, play passive, and control that board until your opponent can't do anything else.
The deck will set you back 8740 dust, and requires quite a few cards out of adventures, especially The League of Explorers. Head on over to the deck guide to learn more about the card breakdown, mulligans, budget replacements, and some videos!
