We have some amazing news to share with Hearthstone fans! Blizzard has published a brand-new update for the mobile version of the card game and it introduces new game mode duels and lots of cool features. The update sports the 18.6.63160 version number and today we are going to cover everything there is to know about it.
Hearthstone 18.6.63160 Update
Right from the start, we want to mention that the update is rolling out via Blizzard’s official OTA (over the air) channels. This means that Android smartphone users who enjoy playing Hearthstone are eligible to download the update just by having access to a stable Wi-Fi network. Without any further ado, let’s go ahead and check out the patch notes.
Zephrys, The Great
- Three Wishes [Cost 4]
- If you have two copies of a minion, find the third. (3 wishes left)
Battlegrounds Parties Adjustments
We’re making small adjustments to Battlegrounds Parties during matchmaking and in post-game rating updates to address the potential advantages that come with queueing as a group.
- Post-game rating updates will no longer include results between players within the same group. When you queue Battlegrounds with a group now, your rating gains are only based on your results against players outside of your group.
- You’ll now be matched based on the highest player rating in your group, rather than the group’s rating average. End of game rating updates will take this rating disparity into account.
- We’ve disabled 2-4 player Battlegrounds Parties for players above 10,000 rating.
Standard Balance Updates
- Old: [Cost 1] → New: [Cost 2]
- Old: Solarian Prime [Cost 7] → New: Solarian Prime [Cost 9]
