In-game Tournaments are coming to Hearthstone.
"Beta for tournaments to begin around the middle of the year.-We’re working on a feature that will help you run a Hearthstone tournament from your own home or Fireside Gathering! You’ll be able to create a custom tournament and invite your friends--all from within the Hearthstone game client. To start, the feature will include matchmaking and checking decks, but we’ll continue to add new features and functionality over time."
Lunara is being added to the game as the first alternative Druid hero. All you gotta do to earn her is win 10 games in Standard, Ranked or Casual.
Maiev will no longer be available to collect starting with the first new expansion of the year. If you already own her, she's yours forever.
A stream will be taking place on March 2 with Ben Brode and Yong Woo for a new year Q&A....well it was before it was cancelled due to the Ranked Ladder shutdown
Some quests will be updated and simplified
40g Quests up to 50g and requirements lowered
