Download Improvements – We’ve continued making improvements to the mobile Hearthstone app.

  • The option to download via cellular data is no longer saved between sessions. You’ll be prompted to provide permission when new data needs to be downloaded.
  • To improve performance, downloads are now paused while in a match.
  • Phones now use lighter weight card art to reduce app size.

Gameplay Improvements & Bug Fixes

  • Small-Time Buccaneer now correctly gains +2 Attack if its stats were swapped by Void Ripper.
  • Deathrattles on replaced weapons now trigger at the same time as minions in play are destroyed, so Powermace will no longer “save” minions destroyed by Blood Razor’s Battlecry.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when Lesser Jasper Spellstone and Bomb were drawn by Ultimate Infestation.
  • Reduced the delay on reactivating Deathstalker Rexxar’s Build-a-Beast when Coldarra Drake or Garrison Commander are in play.
  • Fixed an issue with Valeera the Hollow’s Shadow Reflection sometimes playing its audio cue twice.
  • Fixed an issue where canceling matchmaking could result in a fatal error and failure to connect to a game you would otherwise have been matched to.
  • The season reward chest in the quest log now correctly displays the highest rank achieved, rather than current rank.
  • When searching for Wild cards while building Standard decks in the collection manager, the message now reads “Results found in Wild Sets”.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause returning players to become “stuck” at Finding an Opponent.
  • Fixed an issue with the in-game Shop scaling on high resolution monitors.
  • Fixed various visual issues with Deck Recipes, the Friend List, and New Player Ranks.
  • [Mobile] Fixed issues with cards created by Fal’dorei Strider and Deck of Wonders appearing offscreen on some mobile devices.
  • [Android] Hearthstone now displays correctly on OnePlus6 devices.

    Is it only an issue for me, that since the patch non of the golden or new heroes have background animation?
    It was an issue but only in the lobby, during the previous patch.
