    New Adventures always seem to mess up the App for a bit.

    Kinda disappointed that the new one is an Adventure instead of Dungeon Run style. As much as I enjoy the story of this one, the Dungeon Runs have infinite replayability for me, and I still play 'em today.

    Still chugging along in Wild Legend. The way that bonus stars works means that its heavily disincentivized to fuck around in legend because you might end up with x 10 instead of x 11 next season. So it's lucky that my pet deck, Galaxy Reno Mage, is fairly solid.

    Anyone up on the recent news?

    Hearthstone is finally getting Achievements:
    [​IMG]

    1 is collect 135 unique cards in a set, you get a special cosmetic coin!
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    The 2nd cosmetic coin is rewarded for completing all 50 levels of the Reward Track with the Tavern Pass. That's right Hearthstone is revamping progression & rewards!!!

    [​IMG]

    The Reward Track is a map of rewards that can be earned during an expansion by gaining experience (XP) from completing Quests, completing select achievements, and playing the game in any mode. When a new expansion launches, all players will get a new Reward Track for that expansion. Complete all 50 levels on the Reward Track and you’ll get to choose from one of 10 all-new Hero Skins! Along the way, you’ll unlock a bevy of loot, including card packs from sets in Standard, Tavern Tickets that grant access to either Arena or Duels, the Madness at the Darkmoon Faire Card Back, an Epic card, two Legendary cards, and a ton of gold! You’ll receive 150 gold for every level you climb beyond level 50.

    [​IMG]
    The Reward Track includes a free track for all players, and a paid track that can be unlocked by purchasing the Tavern Pass. Purchasing the Tavern Pass at any point during the expansion will immediately grant the Golden Silas Darkmoon Legendary card, a 10% XP Boost that lasts for the duration of the expansion, and all items up to your current level on the free track. As you progress with the Tavern Pass during the Madness at the Darkmoon Faire expansion you’ll earn additional XP Boost, the Annhylde Alternate Warrior Hero and Card Back, three Jaina Hero Skins, three Thrall Hero Skins, and one of Hearthstone’s first-ever collectible Cosmetic Coins!

    The Quest system is also seeing a revamp, with Quests now awarding XP on the Reward Track. We’ve also added Weekly Quests! At the start of every week (Monday at 12:00 a.m. PT), you’ll be given 3 new Weekly Quests to complete, which are a little more difficult than your average Daily Quest. Like Daily Quests, you can reroll 1 Weekly Quest per day. While they now award XP, Daily Quests are functionally the same. We’re also pleased to share that Legendary Quests will no longer override your Daily Quests! Legendary Quests are a series of special event quest that cannot be rerolled.

    New Expansion launches November 17. Hearthstone Duels Early Access launches October 22. Hearthstone Duels Season 1 starts November 17. Progression and Rewards system updates launches November 12.

    Hearthstone: Duels:

    upload_2020-10-23_8-56-53.png

    Welcome to Duels, a new competitive Hearthstone game mode that changes every season! In Duels, you’ll choose a Hero, a Hero Power, a starting Treasure, and build a 15-card starter deck from your collection before facing off against a series of worthy human opponents—Dungeon Run-style! Devise your path to victory by enhancing your deck after each match with minions, spells, and powerful Treasures to aid in increasingly difficult encounters with other players!

    [​IMG]
    When you start a Duels run, you’ll choose a Hero, a Hero Power, and starting Treasure. Then, you’ll build a starter deck of 15 cards from your Collection and play your first match. In its debut season, Duels will include a curated assortment of cards from a number of sets, including:
    • Scholomance Academy
    • One Night in Kharazan
    • Curse of Naxxramas
    • Basic
    • Classic
    After the match is over, you’ll gain additional health, and get to level up your deck by picking one of three sets of cards categorized by theme. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasures!

    Duels: Early Access Twitch Drops
    [​IMG]
    From October 28 at 10:00 a.m. PT to November 11 at 11:00 p.m. PT, we’ll also be giving away Duels: Early Access to 500 random viewers every hour, across the entire Hearthstone category on Twitch! Watch any Hearthstone stream to be eligible to receive a drop, so long as your Battle.net and Twitch accounts are linked.

    Only thing that interests me is how much effort getting the tavern pass is.

    If they kill off a way to trivially get the tavern pass for free it might finally rid me of my addiction to this terrible game.

    I think Duels is great except for one feature - needing to have cards. I'm a Rogue player, I only have Rogue cards. I dust everything else.

    This actively punishes me for that.

    Thankfully Battlegrounds is all I really play anyway, so not a huge deal.

    I still think the biggest issue with this 'terrible' game is with how awfully it runs. It's so anti-blizzard to have such a poorly running product that it actually infuriates me at this point.
