In the past month or so, the Hearthhead development team has been hard at work on a number of things including tabular data for easier browsing, new deck tile designs, an updated deckbuilder experience, and much more.
Let's give you a quick rundown of the new features that just went live.
We're excited to announce that we're now fully integrated with Overwolf's DeckMate. We've worked closely with the development team to make sure that card collection syncing was included among the new features so you'll no longer have to manually add and update your collection on Hearthhead.
- Player deck tracking
- Deck win rate and other stats
- Import decks directly into Hearthstone
- Export your decks to Hearthhead to share with friends
- Sync your collection to Hearthhead
Speaking of decks, we've got some new deck tiles alongside some changes to the individual deck pages.
For fans of the original Hearthhead, we've brought back a tabular display method similar to what you would have seen before. While you filter, you can now sort your results from highest to lowest trending score, dust cost, and more.
We hope this is satisfying for users who prefer a more data oriented presentation of information.
We've expanded the stats section on each deck page to include many of the requested stats including mechanics, rarity, and more. In addition, these now tie into the physical display of your deck. Select "Rare" and the slider will only display the rare cards in your deck. You can do the same for any rarity, mechanic, mana cost, or even for card types.
As a small quality of life change, we've also moved the decklist to appear alongside guides rather than before it. Now you can see exactly what cards are being discussed as you parse through the introduction of the guide.
Decks can also be made private or public from here and can even be deleted - don't worry though, there's a confirmation prompt before the deck is sent into the abyss.
Cards have received the same tabular treatment as decks, giving you the option to sort by Class, Type, Cost, Attack, Health, Set, or Card Name.
We've also added a small image thumbnail to help users who may not know the card's name but can identify it on sight.
We've tidied up the interface a bit and made the experience as a whole more intuitive.
You'll start by naming you deck, selecting an Archetype for it, and noting whether you want it to be public (viewable to everyone) or private so it'll only show up for you.
Here are the current options for Archetypes:
We'll be updating this shortly to include more specific archetypes like Freeze and Exodia for Mages and Discard for Warlocks.
You can then put together your deck before expanding the Description & Guide section and filling that out with information. We've made this section collapsible so detailed guide writers can either scroll to the top or bottom to minimize the section.
We've also made the decision to migrate over deck statistics to the deckbuilder. As you put together your deck you'll see how the mana curve changes, what types of mechanics it's using, how expensive it is to craft, etc.
We've heard you loud and clear on our need to improve Hearthhead's comment system. Today we launch the first of those efforts.
We've cleaned up the design a bit, separating the highest level comments and making nested replies feel more organic.
We'll also be bringing back the ability to upvote and downvote comments, helping users decide which ones should be displayed first.
There have also been a couple of bug fixes and background improvements that aren't immediately evident.
We appreciate your continued support and hope you enjoy the updates. We'll be around throughout the day to respond to questions, comments, and concerns in the comments section and on social media.
