Hearthstone: Important Hotfix To Many Bugs Including Timing Interactions

Recommended Posts

20600-hearthstone-important-hotfix-to-ma

The release of Whispers of the Old Gods has not been without problems. Although the servers have been running smoothly for the most part, the introduction of the cards has created many bugs and inconsistencies in gameplay. This article looks at some of those. Many were corrected in today's Hotfix.

- Addressed an issue in the Blackrock Mountain adventure where Moira Bronzebeard would attack minions that do not have Taunt.

- Addressed an issue where the interaction between Mad Scientist, SI Agent, and Mirror Entity was not resolving as intended.

- Addressed an issue where the interaction between Wild Pyromancer and Haunted Creeper’s Deathrattle were not resolving as intended.

- The reward cards Old Murk-Eye and Captain’s Parrot can now be crafted and disenchanted and can no longer be acquired through their respective Quests.

- Addressed an issue where Ancient Harbinger would add 10-cost spells to the hand rather than 10-cost minions.

- Addressed an issue where Forlorn Stalker was able to buff Deathrattle weapons in the hand rather than Deathrattle minions.

- Addressed an issue where playing Cabal Shadow Priest while Brann Bronzebeard was in play alongside 5 other minions would destroy the stolen minion.

- Addressed an issue where playing Forbidden Healing at 0 mana with Spell Power in play would cause it to deal damage.

(Mac) Addressed an issue where opening the friends list would cause a crash.

A few of these are more important than they first sound. There have been a lot of timing interactions acting strangely since Whispers of the Old Gods was released. The Wild Pyromancer fix in particular was important, as it was changing the way that Patron Warrior mirror matches were played. Before the patch, it was possible to reduce your Wild Pyromancer to one health, and then play Whirlwind. The Whirlwind would trigger putting the Pyromancer to 0 health. It would then trigger again before dying, often on a board of full of Grim Patrons. This created a way to clear, or at least deal with, the opposing board. This is no longer possible in this way.

The Forbidden Healing bug sounds pretty trivial, but as it was dealing 0 damage, rather than healing for 0, it was enabling people to use spell damage to abuse the bug.

The Moira Bronzebeard bug was actually making it impossible to complete that part of the adventure. Ancient Harbinger and Forlorn Stalker were simply not working as intended.

Finally, Old Murk-Eye and Captain's Parrot have been updated. These cards being a part of Standard drops, and also craftable was apparently intentional to allow people time to finish the quests to earn them. I believe that they will also no longer appear from cards such as Murloc Knight and Tomb Spider due to this change.

Competitors at DreamHack Austin have been given extra time to submit decks due to these changes.

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      (Source)
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.

      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
