Hi all - we’ve temporarily disabled the Tavern Brawl mode and expect it to return tomorrow, Thursday the 14th. Some players were encountering some issues after matches have concluded, and these were serious enough that we wanted to take the mode down entirely.

We’re planning to bring the mode back tomorrow and will be rotating in a different Tavern Brawl for the rest of the week. We’ll provide an update at that time to let everyone know that the mode has been enabled again and give you a heads up of what Tavern Brawl we’ve rotated in.

Get up to speed quickly and learn the basics of Hearthstone Battlegrounds, from your best friend Carbot!

Welcome to Hearthstone: Battlegrounds, the brand-new auto-battling game mode that introduces a fresh, strategic, 8-player experience to Hearthstone. In Battlegrounds, you’ll take on the role of a familiar Hero straight out of Hearthstone history, craft a powerful board of recruited Minions, and face-off in an action-packed series of duels until a single winner is crowned!

Battlegrounds is hitting the Tavern on November 5 for a week of Early Access where players who have acquired the Descent of Dragons pre-purchase bundle, BlizzCon Attendees, or BlizzCon Virtual Ticket holders will be able to access this new game mode. After this early access phase ends at 10 a.m. on November 12, we’ll enter Open Beta where everyone will be able to hop into Bob’s Tavern to try their hand at being the best of the Battleground Heroes!

Due to the nature of an 8-player match with tons of attacks, effects, and animations triggering at the same time, Hearthstone: Battlegrounds is currently only supported on mobile devices with more than 2 GB of RAM. This means that some older mobile devices may not be able to run Battlegrounds. As we progress out of Beta, we will be working to optimize the experience so that players with older devices can participate in this new game mode.

Reno had design and visual effects issues so he was sent packing.

These are not collectible cards, so if something looks like it has a low mana cost don't worry about it.

I am a designer but I know the engineering team is working hard on phone improvements every patch. Some went in yesterday and I am pretty sure more will be in the next patch too.

mdonais commented on MMR for Battlegrounds 1 day ago

ok, I clarified thanks for pointing that out.

Thanks for all the feedback on battlegrounds MMR and how it feels.

We sat with engineers and talked through how it works and decided on a change that will help with the issues.

We are going do 2 things. 1. Post explaining how it works. 2. Make a change so that people get more points for a win and for a loss.

The future post will go into more details on this.

Thanks for the polite, clear feedback - it really helped us know what to look for and how to address it.

Patch notes will be up soon.

The mana cost change is just relevant for effigy.

For context, because it takes 2 weeks to make a proper client patch with localization and QA, these changes predate Blizzcon and were made before we had live data.

We have a small server side patch next week that introduces new heroes. After that we will patch balance again at the start of December.
