Hey, folks! Hearthhead just received another major update. Since our redesign initially launched in October we've been hard at work addressing community feedback and this is where we've arrived at for the time being. Our goal was to stay relatively close to the original design while making it much more aesthetically pleasing. This includes updates to responsiveness (no more wackiness at weird screen sizes), a flattening of the design as a whole, and much more. By no means is this the end of the improvements we're hoping to make, there's a ton in the works that we're very excited to share.

You can find a full list of the changes below.

  • Front Page Changes

    • Header

      • The header now takes up less vertical space.

      • The Home button has been removed and replaced with the Hearthhead logo.

    • Users can now scroll through the featured items at their own pace, though it will still auto scroll on a timing loop.

    • Decks

      • We heard you loud and clear on vertical space being an issue, so now the decks area will never take up more than one row no matter what screen size you're at.

      • Switched from custom icons to the official Hearthstone class icons.

    • News

      • Background color changed to be easier on the eyes.

      • Now only the title and thumbnail are clickable, rather than the entire tile.

  • Stanza Calendar

    • We've added a new calendar widget to the bottom of our pages that tracks major Hearthstone events.

      • This includes podcasts, esports competitions, and more.

      • We'll be adding events and improving this widget even more in the near future.

      • Feel free to check out Wowhead's utilization of it as an example.

    • Please send us your feedback on this!

  • Deckbuilder Changes

    • Inserted the decklist itself into the sidebar, giving you much more space to find the cards you're looking for.
