News from Blizzcon
Today November 3, 2023 during Blizzcon several news emerged regarding the next expansion of Hearthstone. Showdown in the Badlands will be released on November 14, check out the launch trailer below.
Free Card Back
Now available in all regions, Warcraft Rumble is a new addition to the game, lasting from November 3rd to November 13th. After defeating Hogger in this mode, you will unlock the exclusive Arclight card back imbued in Hearthstone.
During the event, a new game mode for Battlegrounds was announced where it will be possible to play with a friend: there will be duels between pairs in which you will share your total life with your friend and you will be able to use each other's cards to defeat your opponents .
This new mode is scheduled for next year. For those interested, who can make it to Blizzcon, it is possible to take a friend and play a demo of the new mode right now at the Warcraft Tavern.
New Synergies between Heroes and Minions
This new mode features exclusive new heroes and special minions. Designed for Doubles gameplay, these cards strengthen your partner and encourage teamwork.
The matches have four teams of two players, with each team sharing a single life. Combat works as follows: initially, your teammate’s warband fights until they finish off both opponents or are defeated. If the first teammate is defeated, the second teammate’s warband takes over to end the fight. If the first player defeats both opponents, the second player's troops deal as much damage as possible to the enemy team!
Communication is the key to victory
Thinking about communication between pairs, there will be a portal that connects you to your partner who, through it, can switch between the view of your board and your partner's board. For 1 gold, you can send cards from your hand through the portal to your ally.
In addition to this portal, players had a tagging system to communicate. They act as expressions to demonstrate your intentions of interest such as purchase, portal and questions.
In addition to being a great way to communicate with your ally, this tagging mode will make it easier to interact with other players who speak other languages!
