Blizzard's slice of competitive card perfection, Hearthstone, is getting revamped. Or re-shuffled, with some new modes. First up there's Standard Play, which will only feature players and opponents with decks made up of cards from the current and previous year. In addition to this there's also be Wild Mode which is basically the status quo, where anything and any-card goes.

As to why the change, well it seems pretty clear. Thanks of course to the following handy set of bullet notes from Blizzard.
Standard promises a fresher Hearthstone experience!

  • Standard will help make for a more dynamic and balanced metagame.
  • A select set of cards makes each new card have more impact!
  • The developers will have more freedom to design exciting new cards.
  • It lets newer players jump in faster without having to collect as many cards.

Still not convined? Well, Lead Designer Ben Brode has got you covered.

To find out more about the new way to Hearthstone and find out about what else is in store, head on over to Battle.Net.

True I'd be interested to see how it works in the end but my biggest struggle with Hearthstone is I didn't get into it straight away and when I play now I got no idea what's going on there are so many cards that I just don't have. Knowing cards can only come from selected seasons would defiantly not make it as intimidating for me. I wouldn't mind throwing $10 each season to get some new cards.
