Blizzard Community Manager Keganbe has put together a comprehensive set of notes for patch 188.8.131.5217 to the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft beta. As ever, you can hit the break for the full post, but we'll pull out some highlights here:
- You are now able to abandon one quest per day. When you abandon a quest, you'll receive a new, random quest in its place.
This is a huge deal, as we'd commented
on how quests and their stagnant style of sitting in your log until completed were an irritation. Particularly if, for whatever reason, you really disliked playing a certain class, the quests could be a real burden.
- You now have the option to keep the sound playing while the game is running in the background.
Finally! Now we can alt-tab away while our opponent plays, or while the game finder is playing its weird tune, and tab back in when we're ready to go! This is a simple little quality of life change that's been a long time coming.
There are also drastic changes to the ranking system, minions and portraits have been added, and the "seasons" last for a month. You now win and lose stars for winning and losing games, and once you hit the top 10,000 players you'll have your specific ranking displayed.
A lot has changed! Hit the break for the full notes.
