Hearthstone's latest patch notes seem a little ... foolish

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Brace yourselves. April Fools' Day is fully upon us and Blizzard, whose résumé is rather robust on this over the years, has just weighed in with patch notes for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft "version"

Among the gems:

  • After many bouts with brain freeze, Snowchugger now eats snow at a more reasonable rate.
  • We've fixed a bug with Animal Companion that sometimes caused the spell to not summon Huffer.
  • After sensitivity training, Ancient of Lore, Ancient of War and Ancient Mage will now be known as Senior Citizen of Lore, Senior Citizen of War and Harold respectively.
  • Snowchugger is now an 8/8 because it's too cute and people are not taking it seriously enough.
  • Call Pet card text now reads, "Hello, this is dog."

There's also a "painstaking HD update" of the classic Hearthstone card back — probably the one thing from this list that actually is in the game. See it below!

It's going to be a very, very long day in video gaming. We'll be rounding it all up shortly and pointing out the best gags, the usual suspects and the just plain shit.
