19.2 Server Hotfix

Hey everyone,

We’re currently in the process of deploying a hotfix that includes the following:

  • Made several micro adjustments for card offering rates in Arena.

    • Dev Comment: Updated the appearance rate of cards to ensure class balance remains close to the ideal 50% win-rate. Specifically, the win-rate of Demon Hunter and Warlock should now be decreased. The win-rate of Druid, Hunter, Mage, Rogue, and Shaman should now be increased. The win-rate of Paladin, Priest, and Warrior should be roughly the same as before.
  • Fixed a visual bug that persisted on the board after a Corrupted minion had been destroyed or otherwise removed. We’re still working on a fix for cards that transform, such as Bandersmosh and Molten Blade.

    • 12/21 Update: We are now deploying a fix for the following cards that transform: Shifter Zerus, Bandersmosh, Molten Blade, Chameleos.
  • Fixed a bug that caused unlocked Duels Hero Power and Signature Treasure choices to revert to default Hero Powers and Signature Treasures after they’d been selected.

    • 12/16 Update: Players will be compensated with 150 Gold for every Heroic Duels run impacted by this bug between the launch of the 19.2 patch and this hotfix. Compensation for this is planned to go out within the next two days.

This hotfix will take place on the server side, so you won’t need to download anything if you’ve already updated to the 19.2 patch.


If only we could get wild balance patches this quickly.


I like how they call it “a visual bug.” The minion stayed around and took up board space. That’s more than “visual.”


Not quite. It didn’t stop you from having 7 minions on the board but I get where you’re coming from.

What about silas not corrupting cards when rotated this has been a problem 1 month ago, it shouldnt work that way because I played 7 mana for the card still it should corrupt the cards in my hand …


During the process of creating a duel deck, I lost my internet connection just when I clicked “Finish Creation”. And now, when I try to start a match search, instead of an opponent, I get “The selected deck is not suitable for this game format”. Restarting doesn’t help.

I assume I’ve lost access to duels until next season? Can I apply something to my account to remove this restriction?

By the way: in heroic duels, for some reason, you removed the “retreat" button, which was in every other arena-styled gamemode except this.
Thanks. Great.

I even asked Cora before the ‘’ hotfix ‘’ and she said it’s a visual bug . She said : ‘’ No need to be rude ‘’ after I said the playtest was a failure KEKW. They can’t even say sorry for ruining their customers experience.
