The road map includes a revamped matchmaking system, automated tournaments and improved latency to meet modern standards.
That suggests that the update to the game last year, which brought it up to date for modern OSs, was the start of a trend rather than a one-off.
As such, we will be updating Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power to include new Beasts going forward.
Please be patient, as this is a fairly complicated endeavor and we may need to start with a smaller change before a more permanent solution is implemented.
Multiplayer is what’s being targeted, of course, but it’s worth remembering that Warcraft III was Blizzard’s last truly campaign-led strategy game.
We don’t have a date for this change to share with you today, but we will provide more information once we have it.
Please also note that as new Beasts are released, we may need to mark some of them as exempt for various reasons, much like how King of Beasts is currently excluded from the pool of Beasts that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power can pull from. We see your love and passion for Hearthstone and believe that the best way to make Hearthstone better is to do so together.
Source During KFT development, some designers thought it would be cool if DK Rexxar did something similar to Kazakus (create a custom spell) and could stitch together two beasts to make a custom one.
We talked about how that could work, including considering making custom minions exclusive to DK Rexxar with simple abilities that could be interesting when combined (like Kazakus).
