Blizzard Entertainment released Hearthstone as a collectible card game. Hearthstone matches pride themselves on being fast-paced and requiring you to execute the best possible strategy with the cards you have.

Hearthstone is available as a free-to-play game, so you can try it without spending anything. It also receives constant support with new content and challenges, just like other games from the company.

Game freezes when you play Brann Bronzebeard into Queen Azshara

Been playing reno paladin where I encountered this bug: When you try to double up on Azshara’s battlecry with Brann, Queen Azshara doesn’t have an animation. It then lets me choose my first relict, however, then the game freezes and I can’t choose my second relict until I reload the game. Has anyone else had similar issues?

New bug that bricks game for both players

Basically if you play Brann into Queen Azshara into her weapon choice then the game freezes up and you have to restart to gain access to it again. Usually I restart and my rope gets burned but my opponent’s turns just get skipped. It’s happened 3/3 times while I’ve been playing Naga Priest.
