We've got several hotfixes rolling out today to Hearthstone to balance Battlegrounds through Armor Tier changes and adjustments to the difficulty of earning Quest Rewards. We've also got some bug fixes which include another fix for the annoying Theotar, the Mad Duke client crash. Read on for all the details.

Some of the above is closely connected to the previously talked about known issues and everything related to the new patch. Certain problems still remain, for which you can find a detailed overview over here: 

The following changes will take some time to go out to Hearthstone in all the regions. If you don't see them live yet, that's because they aren't but will be coming soon! Since this is a server-side patch, no client download will be required.
