Blizzard Details Upcoming Hearthstone Beta Wipe

Posted on September 27, 2013 AT 02:47am

Blizzard has offered up some details regarding the upcoming Hearthstone beta wipe that will accompany a new patch.

According to the developer, the wipe will cause a player’s gold, experience, class levels, unlocked cards, and arcane dust quantities to be reset to 0, basically turning everyone back into new players. Blizzard noted at the beginning of the beta that a wipe would be occurring at some point, so this shouldn’t come as a shock to most.

The wipe will coincide with the release of a ”pretty major” patch, details of which are set to be revealed in the near future. Players will be reimbursed for all real-money spent following the wipe. An equivalent gold value will be given to all players for any card packs or Arena entry tickets purchased with real-money. There are no plans for another wipe after this one.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
