The Year of the Kraken is almost behind us and it's been filled to the brim with Hearthstone updates, great Blizzard trailers, some fantastic animations, highlights, and more than a few choice cards. Today we're taking a quick look back at the year that was 2016.
- The launch of Standard and Wild.
- More deck slots!
- Four new hero skins!
- Two new expansions.
- One new adventure.
- Three new game boards.
- The Welcome Bundle.
- Two major balance patches.
- First banned Arena cards.
Blizzard's cinematic team always knocks these out of the park so they remain one of the biggest highlights each and every year.
Well known for his DOTA 2 Reporter series, Wronchi made his Hearthstone debut with Thrall v Rexxar: A Hearthstone Cartoon. They're incredibly funny and it even caught the attention of Blizzard who paid him to make a special promo episode for One Night In Karazhan.
