Hearthstone Friends List Rank Display Change, More Old Gods Card Reveals

Following feedback from the community, Blizzard has announced changes to how your rank will be displayed once the format update is live. Previously your Standard rank was the only one displayed causing some to worry about the popularity of Wild, but the development team has listened to these discussions and announced some changes.

The final vote is now live! After this week we'll have officially ran out of listed streamers to vote for, so unless Blizzard does some other type of voting, this looks to be the end of the process.

With the implementation of Standard and Wild formats on the horizon, we want to ensure that their addition to Hearthstone is a fun and meaningful experience for all our players around the world. Everyone should feel free to enjoy the format they have the most fun with, and be recognized for their efforts ascending the ladder in Ranked Play, regardless of format.

After careful consideration, we have decided to make a change to the rank displayed on your friends list once Standard and Wild formats go live.

Previously, we announced that your current rank in Standard would be the rank displayed next to your name on your friends list. Instead, once the Year of the Kraken officially begins, your best current rank--whether Standard or Wild--will automatically be displayed on your friends list.

For example, if you are rank 15 in Wild and rank 18 in Standard, your rank in Wild will be displayed.

We hope this change will encourage our players to proudly display the in-game accomplishments they have achieved, whether they are traversing Wild or diving into Standard.
