Hearthstone Patch 27.2.2 Teaser – Standard & Battlegrounds Balance Changes

TITANS expansion has been out for nearly a month, and we already had a couple of balance updates. Last one happened with Patch 27.2, and while it buffed some of the weaker classes (mainly Warrior), it didn’t do much to address the dominance of Hunters. Blizzard just teased Patch 27.2.2 with some Standard nerfs for Hunter, as well as Battlegrounds balance changes.

For now, we only know which cards will get affected, not how will they change! The patch itself is coming “soon”. The usual schedule is teaser on Tuesday and Patch on Thursday, so if they stick to it, it should be out on Thursday (August 31) at 10 AM PT (19:00 CET).

Until then, all we have is a list of affected cards:


In Battlegrounds, we’re getting A LOT of buffs, two nerfs, two Neutral changes, and some minion pool swaps.

You can find teasers for both formats below:

Standard mode. A banner reads "27.2.2." Card art for three cards are shown in red circles: Fox Spirit Wildseed, Halduron Brightwing, and Faithful Companions.

Battlegrounds mode. A banner reads "27.2.2."
Under a green upward arrow is card art for: Relentless Sentry, Surf n' Surf, Soul Rewinder, Keyboard Igniter, Fairy Tale Caroler, Adaptable Barricade, Stormbringer, Electric Synthesizer, Niuzao, Famished Felbat, Omega Buster, Obsidian Ravager, Granite Guardian, Sanguine Champion, Recurring Nightmare
Under a red downward arrow are: Sore Loser, Champion of the Primus
Accompanied by two sprialing arrows: Time Saver, Carbonic Copy
Accompanied by green plus signs: General Drakkisath, Tavern Tempest, Bonker, Kaboom Bot
Accompanied by red minus signs: Razorgore, Baby Krush, Dynamic Duo, Invent-o-matic

      Normally I would say late September/early October, but Patch 27.2 was released a week earlier than I expected, so… maybe mid-late September?
