    ummm....there was going to be an iPhone version, right.....?

    #32 Mathspy (Live Patch 4973)

    Yes but not now.

    The Android and iPhone versions are still in development and Blizzard has declared they are aiming at the second half of this year for their realise

    #29 Kingfish11 (Beta Patch 4944)

    Well I hope the iPad version is better than the mac version.  They are both written in same language so I suspect similar problems but they might get more attention on the iPad since it is going to be more used.  Get ready to have your game freeze for 2-3 turns every few minutes though.

    #30 shineq (Beta Patch 4944)

    The language doesn't matter that much since the game is made with Unity, which is cross platform.

    #26 Fenixdown (Beta Patch 4944)

    Well, at least I can craft a Cairne or something for the Pagle.

    #21 sirpuffins (Beta Patch 4944)

    Why oh why did they change tinkmaster. He is the only solid removal for Druid. Nat Pagle is changed for the better definitely Draw mechanics especially RNG bases can cause some issues. More then a few bar fights were started over dueling Pagles

  • +1
    #22 macisimo (Beta Patch 4944)

    Pagle nerfed, 50 % draw chance of the start of your turn - THINK ABOUT IT ( no first draw). Tinkmaster buffed.

  • +1
    #23 nigsnags (Beta Patch 4944)

    They may have buffed his stats but they nerfed his ability. He now reads 'Battlecry: transform a another RANDOM minion into a 5/5 devilsaur or 1/1 squirrel.'

    yes, you are right sir:)

    Does that mean we can get 400 dust from the Ancient War ? :D

    This still leaves me wondering about the card packs

    NameSource
    Default Creating an account (Understood)
    Pandaria Participating in Ranked Season 1 (Does this mean even angry chickens are going to have this? So basically, anyone who is in the game as soon as it's realised is going to have this and as soon as the season ends, this is unobtainable?)
    Black Temple Participating in a Ranked Season (Same as above for another season)
    Charm Participating in a Ranked Season (Same as above for another season)
    Launch Achievement: Fireside Friends (So now I can invite friends to the game and get this?)
    Legend Achievement: You are legend (Understood)

    Participant means exactly what it means in a sporting context.
    You didn't win, but it was nice that you tried - here have a ribbon anyways. 
    But I wouldnt be surprised if there is a game participation stipulation, like at least play 10 ranked games.
    The fact that different seasons have different rewards is obviously a tie-in to give players incentive to continue to play every month.

    The one called Launch - I assume we get it you play within the first few weeks of the launch date.

  • +1
    #15 Mathspy (Beta Patch 4944)

    I play everyday XD
    Well... I would honestly be sad if I wasn't playing already and then entered later on and found people with all kinds of different card packs that I would like to own yet now unobtainable in any way

    But the reward description for Launch is

    Hearthstone is better with friends! Enjoy the company, and your new card back!

    Wouldn't the word "company" and the achievement's name "Fireside Friends" suggest that now I will be able to invite friends and get that?

  • +1
    #12 the9tail (Beta Patch 4944)

    On the positive:
    1. Looks like iPad release is imminent.
    2. Reconnect feature is enabled.
    3. New rope?
    4. Ancient wording change
    5. Pagle nerf keeps the card the same.
    6. Release date is in April.

    On the negative:
    1. Tinkmaster nerf shifts it from playable to casual.
    2. Leaves me wondering if Adventures are going to be available on release...
    3. Leaves me wondering about where the interface is to choose card backs?
    4. Diablo 3 ROS gives 1 measly pack.

    Pagle doesn't stay the same. 

    Previously, he got a 50% chance to basically cycle himself (not considerung Snipe), now if he is removed in the turn after, he cannot give you a replacement card.

    Glass half empty kind of guy huh.
    The card is fundamentally the same except the opposing player has a chance to counter him before he does his first draw. 
    He cycles himself later, but still cycles.

  • +1
    #20 Dacyon (Beta Patch 4944)

    He is still one turn behind, as far as I see these changes. Sometimes there is an immediate removal and he has 0% of cycling. 

    Anyway, I'm gonna DE him and see how others think about it. - I'm gonna replace him in my decks.
