Hearthstone Arena balance patch 17.0.3 now live
The latest patch was introduced as a hotfix and is geared toward balancing some wonky statistics that are affecting the Arena game type. Patch 17.0.3 will make minor adjustments to card offering rates in Arena, according to the Hearthstone team.
In Standard or Wild Hearthstone, matches are played with fully-constructed decks. Players sift through their entire collection and are able to craft any deck they’d like before heading into play mode. Arena, on the other hand, is what’s referred to as a Draft format.
In a Draft format, players choose from a random assortment of cards to create their deck. In Hearthstone‘s Arena, players choose from 30 different selections of cards. Players then take their crafted deck and attempt to obtain 12 wins before they suffer three losses.
