    Wow, still down?
    I guess that's what you're in a beta for.

    The problem is affecting ALL members of the EU trying to play Blizzard's games, it's not only affecting Hearthstone. US servers are fine though.

    Over thirty hours offline now apparently and as usual there is hardly any communication from Blizzard about the problem or an ETA for a fix.

    a service failure like this wont have an eta for fix it will only get an eta for next update if anything. to do otherwise is just to invite more criticism when that eta comes and goes.

    hmm, so I've failed to be 'lucky' in the last 2 key giveaways. Are there other paths to getting Beta keys? (other than ebay)
    Bliz must be giving them out to other sites to give away too I guess, but then I suppose the same people creating dummy accounts to grab them here will be there too :(

    For those that can listen to youtube in the background at work, I highly recommend TotalBiscuits' Lord of the Arena series, lots of commentary on building as well as playing his decks. Also this new series is entertaining, where he is playing arena with a 28 legendary deck.

    I'll forgive Blizzard for the outage now. What a lucky morning!

    Also, I wouldn't recommend TotalBiscuit for anything. Grating voice with a high feeling of self-worth.

    If you really want to learn how to play the game, read Icy Veins for some class guides and watch people play live on Twitch.tv

    TotalBiscuit is another one of those YouTube 'things' I've never got.

    Mildly articulate, but not especially so, person with a somewhat annoying voice talking poorly about new games for 20 minutes.

    What does he actually do that makes you want to watch it?

    TotalBiscuit has a dreadfully annoying voice, I agree.

    But then again, I don't get the whole streaming/celeb youtube culture that's emerged. A competitive DOTA2 match maybe, but watching some ego pratting about playing COD or streaming some Farmville action just has no appeal to me.

    I discovered him when I was considering getting into DOTA2, it was incredibly informative to watch him just play as he's really good at stream of consciousness commenting when he plays. He discusses the processes behind his decisions, and regrets over his mistakes.

    By the time I played my first game of DOTA I felt like I had about 20 hours of experience and it made a huge difference. Then I just started watching his WTF's and eventually listening to the Content patches in the background while working.

    I too didn't get the celeb youtube thing, but now I have 4 or 5 people that I watch/listen to most things that they produce, all from a start of wanting to learn about DOTA. And now I'm doing the same thing for Hearthstone... I don't even have a beta key, but I feel like I've played it for hours already.

    TotalBiscuit is polarising but at least his commentaries are intelligible. So many other more popular Youtube gaming 'celebrites' (PewDiePie, Tobuscus, KSI) can barely string a sentence together. You actually learn things from TB's Hearthstone and StarCraft videos.

    Fair enough, Wobble.

    Most vids I've seen by him offer fuck all, but I've only watched half a dozen or so. I've seen more by others, perhaps some senso refers to, who simply can't speak.

    Do these people not write a little script/notes? I don't want a robot, but someone who can speak without saying 'uh' every 3rd word would be nice.

    You do now - check your Eurogamer inbox. :)

    (Blizzard just sent me one - I already have one so thought I'd be generous to someone that apparently needed one). :)

    Yeah I take back what I said about Mages. At rank 13 they're all using the same cookie cutter deck with freezes, ice armour secret, cheat death secret and pyroblasts.

    Can't do shit and they're not even playing any minions. Nerf bat incoming before release.

    Oh, they're nerfing Mages already. That was fast. Guess it goes live tomorrow for EU.

    Frost Nova's Mana Cost has been increased to 3, from 2.
    Blizzard's Mana Cost has been increased to 6, from 5.
    Cone of Cold's Mana Cost has been increased to 4, from 3.
    In the most recent patch, we discovered an issue where some players were unable to start a new Arena run. This particular issue is unable to be hotfixed and requires a client patch to resolve. The good news is, we’re about ready to patch Hearthstone and get those affected back to normal!

    With that said, we’re not planning on too many additional patches between now and open beta, so we’ve also decided to take this opportunity to make a couple of changes to some Mage cards that utilize the Freeze mechanic.

    We’ve been keeping an eye on Freeze mechanics for the past few months, and we’ve decided to make some changes to certain cards that utilize Freeze in this patch: Cone of Cold, Blizzard and Frost Nova. These cards are all having their mana costs increased by one. We understand that the Freeze mechanic can be frustrating to play against, and we feel that these changes should allow the opponent some additional time to be aggressive with their minions and well as slow the overall pacing of the control-based Mage play style while still keeping Freeze playable in many different types of decks.

    As with all Expert card changes, Cone of Cold and Blizzard will both be disenchantable for their full value for two weeks starting from the day of the patch.

    Thank you for continuing to test Hearthstone and giving us your feedback!

    What class is everyone playing?

    I have been playing a lot of druid and paladin. I am thinking I might try shaman though, as I never see them!

    Well that's my deck shagged then. It's all about early board control and holding on until the nukes come out.

    Glad to see they are tweaking freeze. It will still be rife since the mechanic itself hasn't changed so it won't totally kill freeze decks, just make people think a bit more before running mass freeze.
