Hearthstone releases its new mini-set and updates Battlegrounds and Mercenaries in latest patch


The time for Maw and Disorder is now in Hearthstone’s newest patch, which brings on the titular mini-set the CCG unveiled last week – expect more cards, more synergies, a new Accusation card type, and Sylvanas getting in trouble once again.

In addition to the new mini-set’s release, the patch makes a wide swath of updates to Battlegrounds mode and Mercenaries mode. In Battlegrounds, Sylvanas’ hero card is back, a new cosmetic board has been added that changes visuals depending on a variety of situations, and the card Another Hidden Body has been returned to the quest reward pool (though it’s now harder to earn). As for Mercs mode, there are several new mercs to collect, a new zone with new bounties, and updates to some of the mode’s existing mercs. The patch notes provide all of the salient details.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial gaming company owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In 2021, the company was sued by California for fostering a work environment rife with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. Multiple state and federal agencies are investigating the company as employees unionize and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2022, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
