This week's Brawl: Just a Hallucination
iOS players will now need to use iOS 8.0 at a minimum if they want to play Hearthstone.
The new ladder changes are in and ready for the March ranked season.
A special Year of the Mammoth bundle is available which gives you 30 packs at a great discount.
The first two turns of each game are now shorter. Stop going AFK after hitting the queue button.
Nemsy now has a golden hero frame when you have unlocked the golden Warlock hero.
Dungeon Run has some card changes to loot categories. (Looking into this more)
Illidan received a new animation!
Quick update to prizing for the Quest for Packs. The Grand Prize will now include $1,200 USD. (to cover taxes US residents must pay on prizes)
Event runs from February 19 until March 11.
Wild cards return to the Arena during the duration of the event.
A special Tavern Brawl will take place called "Venture into the Wild" which has premade Wild decks.
Another Tavern Brawl will be available called "The Wild Brawliseum".
First run is free, extra runs are the same cost as an arena entry.
Like the Arena, you get to play with a deck up to 12 wins and get rewards based on your progression, like Arena.
