Several Hearthstone community members were in attendance at the 2020 Community Summit where they get a preview of what Blizzard is cooking up for the year and beyond.
Frodan sent out a Tweet today stating he was "still in shock" after hearing what has been planned for this year. I can tell you that last year I was teased with the prospects of the best year of Hearthstone yet and looking back on it, it was indeed an amazing year for Hearthstone. With knowing how invested Frodan has been into Hearthstone since its announcement, him feeling comfortable enough to tease the community as a whole today says something big.
An announcement is coming "soon", whatever that means.
What do you want to see out of Hearthstone this year? What do you think Blizzard will do with the game?
Quote From Frodan
Still in shock after hearing what's planned for @PlayHearthstone 2020. The developers remain as passionate as ever. They haven't given up on the game. Not even close. If they can execute, this will cement Hearthstone for the next decade. For new, returning, and veteran players.
When do us normals get to find out?
Pretty soon. They didn't have everything 100% prepared so obviously it's not ready for the public to see, but they gave us a rough timeline of what's happening.
I don't wanna get in trouble and promise a date on their behalf…but the closest thing will be very soon.

We had an awesome time at the HS summit. You all should be very happy with what is coming to Hearthstone soon. Will be about 2 hours late for today's stream.

Just like me, this water bottle is leakproof 🙃
Lots of cool stuff coming to @PlayHearthstone in the coming year and I can’t wait for you all to hear about it!

I’m really impressed with what the @PlayHearthstone team presented today. Can’t go into specifics but it’s safe to say 2020 will be a great year for the game!
Thanks to Kripp for the article image.
Have you found a deck you enjoy playing? The pace of the matches can vary a lot depending on what type of deck you play. Plus, with the way you can combine regions and the fact that they will be adding more regions and expanding the existing regions, the deck building possibilities are crazy. So even if you haven't found a deck that fits your play style yet, you're bound to find one eventually.
The main issue I have with Runeterra is the aesthetics and UI. There isn't enough flavor on the cards and the whole game just feels a bit flat, if you know what I mean. All of the card borders look the same, and the boards are really bland.
I don't hate LoR, but it just feels boring to play, even if the actual gameplay is good.
I have similar feelings @KANSAS.
In particular, I don't like:
- animations of Heroes who level up (yes, they look nice.. but after seeing them few times they annoy me more and more... and I can't disable them... I would prefer just a small animation happening on the board),
- only 1 small icon indicating what faction it is in (hard to differentiate card faction),
- after playing a card it is "frozen" in the air for a split second (in HS playing cards feels soooo smooth...),
- UI isn't good enough, especially the main menu.
Still LoR is quite polished, the gameplay loop feels really good. I think that's enough to keep the game enjoyable for most players. All the graphic issues can be fixed easily. It's not like Artifact, where gameplay felt just bad, so no wonder that people just left so fast.
better dusting system???
Well . . .
You have definitely piqued my curiosity.
Hopefully it's better than Galakrond's Awakening
card skins, because that's how you properly milk the whales
i think in a movement similar to overwatch 2. You can get your old collection in a brand new game
I don't think so, if they're going to make Hearthstone 2.0 it will be more like Heroes of the Storm 2.0..
Bold statement for sure. i mean yeah cementing HS for next decade when theres the threat of LoR around the corner really seems that what they are coming up with is a completely new thing and something that can revitalize the game for another generation
