I'm completely overjoyed and honored to announce that I'm joining Blizzard Entertainment as an Assistant Community Manager of Relationships for Hearthstone!

Blizzard's games, culture, and community are the reason I decided to follow my passions into the video game industry in the first place - and working at Blizzard has been a long-time dream of mine. Getting here has been the best kind of adventure and I've met some absolutely amazing people along the way. Thank you to everyone that has supported me, laughed with me, and been a friend. You're my people. :)

Before I went into my final interview, I rewatched this video that really resonates with me:



Someone pinch me. I'm dreaming, right?

I could not be happier to start a whole new chapter at Blizzard and be surrounded by people filled with the same passion and enthusiasm that inspire me! Here we go! (Source)

Replying to a question on Reddit, Daxxarri cleared up the current state of Community Managers.

There are several of us, but we tend to be somewhat specialized, and a lot of what we do ends up being behind the scenes or isn't attributable to a recognizable name, so you might recognize some of us more than others. I write a lot of the blogs that end up on the official site, and handle a bunch of other stuff. There's also Zeriyah, of course, Aratil, Avarius, Keganbe, JesseHill (a new CM who is focused on Fireside Gatherings!), and there are other members of the team who art things for us and don't have a public presence. And we're happy to be welcoming Molly to the team now as well! (source)

Daxxarri also cleared up how interactions with Reddit work. Something Ben Brode also recently commented on.

I post very occasionally, but you can be sure that more than one of us reads every major topic (and most of the minor threads too) that pass through this sub every day. I spend time reading /r/CompetitiveHS too. (Source)

We would like to congratulate Molly on her appointment to her dream job, and wish her all the best going forward.

I'm more amazed that her Twitch account name is Molly. I mean, that's impressive right there.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
