A new Hearthstone patch has appeared on Blizzard's servers. There are a number of changes to existing text strings but the most interesting is a string that says "Waiting for next game to start." Currently when a player you are spectating ends the game they are currently playing the spectator is left idling at the win or loss screen. A spectator would then have to stop spectating the game that is now over, reopen their friends list, and start spectating that player's next game. Now it looks like not only will your spectate mode carry over to the next game, but there will be even more information about what your friends are doing in between games.

The previously announced Lunar New Year card back for reaching Rank 20 this season has also been added to the game files!
