Value Town Finale

Today, the last episode of ChanmanV's Value Town aired and it featured Hearthstone Senior Game Designer, Mike Donais. We've got a recap of new information, and the videos of the show below.

Thanks for the great show ChanmanV, we'll miss it! For more information on why ValueTown is being cancelled, check out this video.

  • The next card expansion will feature "not exactly 100 cards, but it's a lot".
  • The cards in the next expansion will come out of a new booster pack.
  • You will still need to purchase Expert booster packs to get Expert cards. You'll have two choices in the store.
  • There is no current goal for expansion release cycles, but they're working hard on the next one.
  • The devs are not currently working on 2v2 formats. They're "maybe" thinking about it.
  • Mike liked the Lord of the Arena series (Congrats Reynad on winning your own tournament) and it would be nice if they could facilitate this better.
  • Instead of adding more silence cards to the game to combat potential Deathrattle problems, cards should be added which address Deathrattle directly.
  • The Paladin class challenge was not the best one, it's a lesson learned. Could have been more buff cards.

Versus Series: Birdy vs Jonpii

Jotto's back with another episode of Versus Series. Today, Ace Breaker's own Birdy takes on DJ Jonpii in a best of three, deck elimination format. Check out the matches below, along with their decklists!

Arena Entry Issues

If you've been having issues entering the arena, Rolkyr posted a thread this afternoon requesting more information from players to help figure out the cause. You can submit your information here.

Quote from Rolkyr

 We are aware of the current issue with players being unable to enter the arena. If you are experiencing this, please reply with the following information below:

  • What region are you playing in?
  • Can you provide a screen shot of what you are seeing?
  • Are you getting any errors?
  • When exactly did this start happening?
  • Are you stuck at the reward screen, the entry price screen or anywhere in between?

Any additional info on this matter is greatly appreciate. I will also be updating THIS thread with information as it becomes available to me. Thank you all for your patience as we work to get this resolved. Cheers!
