Thank you so much, however, I do not see the Steam release date, when is it coming?


Sorry to say but Sonya was not a bug.

Any card who detects something being played or on board could detect itself if it fufill the condition.

Check metrognome for info.

You literally made a card bug as a “fix”.




Not a usual interaction but Shudderblock with Dr. Stitchnsew BREAKS the game lol

wow, you guys that’s it. Dam! standard players must be very… happy.

If you think Sonya wasn’t bugged, I’d encourage you to try playing any of the following cards and report back with any that trigger off of themselves being played:

  • Blindeye sharpshooter
  • Ixlid, Fungal Lord
  • Spitelash Siren
  • Disciplinarian Gandling
  • Mimiron, the Mastermind
  • Wailing Vapor
  • Underbelly Angler
  • Firemancer flurgl
  • Animated berserker
  • Risky skipper
  • Magic carpet (after being discounted)
  • Xavius
  • Metrognome (after being discounted)

Or try any of these cards with specific hand positions:

  • Stargazer Luna
  • Razorglaive sentinel
  • Altruis the outcast
  • Rumble Enthusiast

yes we are

we were waiting for the sonya bug fix

you ve been posting on this forum and playing the game for a loooooooooooooooooong time

why didnt you report it earlier ?

you had 10 years to report this “bug” with knife juggler

unless you dont really think is a bug


I think galactic projection orb is bugged, it says it will cast random spells of the same cost, but both times I played today I could swear the exact same spells were cast.

Oh no rogue has a tier 5 deck! quick roll out the hotfix!

I thought devs job was to balance the game. I only see Rogue nerfs when they suck already. :grimacing:

Well…The Mage deck just keeps getting weaker and weaker…this patch has just effed up the entire Hearthstone game…although it has been slowly happening for some time now. NOT HAPPY JAN!

As a main Druid and Mage, this expansion destroyed all my enjoyment of this game.
Last year the only strong deck was Druid Treant, which wasn’t very fun.

Even with a perfect draw I can’t win against Paladin DK and War which represent 80% of the standard ladder

Sonya Waterdancer’s animation is too slow.

you guys are to slow with these updates.

Although this is off topic for the update… but I do have suggestions for some hero skins.
Maybe someone from Blizzard will read this. :wink:

King Toggwaggle - rogue
Sklibb Sporeling - demon hunter

I’m sure there is some nice little balance changes, fixes and updates, but the whole entire infrastructure of your GAME is riddled in imbalances and exploits.

Dont forget about hunter. All I see is hunters and warriors nothing else.
