hadidjahb commented on Why do Chenvaala and Kael'thas count spells differently? 22 hours ago

As Marrow said. Kaelthas's Verdant Spheres were probably the most contentious single-card effect I was ever involved in, because flavor-wise they're dope but they didn't actually follow the rules for pips. Either we had three spheres - rad, but the third would always be empty, or it'd have an obnoxious persistent blink, or some other weird thing - or you only have two spheres that behave consistently with other pips but then it's just... not the hitting fantasy anymore, and still sort of weird because the card says three, the pips say two, yadda yadda. There was just nothing with pips that both felt right and followed the rules.

It's part of why we made sure to get them in on his BGs hero power where it did work with the mechanic, we really wanted the spheres to make it somewhere lol.

Hey! We're planning for Micro Mummy to return to Battlegrounds in our next major update.

cmdylux submitted Hotfix for Galakrond Armor Bug 1 day ago

Hey everyone,

We’re currently deploying a hotfix that addresses the following:

  • Fixed a visual bug where armor totals would not update properly after playing Galakrond.

This is a server-side fix, so you won’t need to download anything if you’ve already updated to 18.2.

TDing_HS commented on Some Numbers for Battlegrounds Group Queue Win-rate 7 days ago

Average is in terms of rating.

Yeah the definition of active player is still consistent with Dean's quote.

Win-rate gain is the probability gain that you are ahead of one of your opponent when fixing your rating discrepancy and assume both players have zero variance.

The data includes all regions globally (regional stats looks very close in this case).

TDing_HS commented on Some Numbers for Battlegrounds Group Queue Win-rate 7 days ago

At the moment ~75% of all games are entirely solo queue games.

Hey guys! Since there are a lot of interests of knowing how group queue could bring you any advantage, I'd like to post some numbers here from yesterday's game-play data (with some criteria applied to exclude "abnormal" games).

  • If you are an average player, and you are in a group queue with your friends, your predicted win-rate gain when against solo queue players is:

+0.37% (2 players), +0.18% (3 players) +0.77% (4 players)

  • If your rating is among top 30% (~6000 rating) of active players ( You’re good at this! ), and you are in a group queue with your friends, your predicted win-rate gain when against solo queue players is:

+2.0% (2 players), +2.5% (3 players) +4.5% (4 players)

Therefore statistically group queue would just bring a very small advantage at the moment. That being said, we will keep monitoring the situation closely and do some adjustments if necessary.

Enjoy Bob's hospitality(...and forgive him if he misunderstood your thoughts) and see you in the Tavern! :)
