Format

For new players, Wild mode will be locked away until they obtain a card which is not part of the current Standard format. After obtaining a Wild card, they will be able to access Wild mode selection. Prior to obtaining a Wild card, the player will only be able to select Standard format and create Standard decks.

Cards

Wild cards can currently only be obtained through crafting; be that as it may, there are plans for Wild cards to be more accessible to players in the future (see below).

Only card packs for the current Standard format sets are available for purchase in the hearthstone from Wild expansions Expansions are major card set additions to the game of Hearthstone.

One Hearthstone designer is focusing on making Wild-exclusive cards easier for players to obtain in the future, rather than by solely from crafting.

These plans might be shown before the Year of the Mammoth Standard format, or Standard, is one of Hearthstone s two game formats, the other being Wild format. Standard format is intended to feature a fresher and more focused Hearthstone experience, with a limited pool of cards hearthstone ends.

Design

Variety

With cards from any set allowed, Wild format sees a far larger range of cards in play. As a result, more synergies and combinations are available, with a higher power level overall. The format is expected to steadily grow in power over time, outstripping Standard format, and allowing some very `wild` combinations intentionally prevented in Standard (see Balance, below). This can also allow for a far greater variety of decks in play.

One intention for Wild format is to provide a break from the sometimes predictable meta of Standard format, similar to Arena A video explaining the Arena in Hearthstone made by the Curse Gamepedia YouTubeTechnology company Channel. The Arena is a game mode where players compete against each other using specially constructed decks to earn substantial rewards. It hearthstone or Tavern Brawls The Tavern Brawl interface Tavern Brawl is one of Hearthstone s lighter game modes. A weekly event, a new Tavern Brawl begins each Wednesday (Thursday in Asian regions), ending the following Monday. Outside of these times, hearthstone . While some players may simply prefer the format, others may find more interest in it as the latest expansion or adventure grows older, and the meta begins to grow stale.

Initially only separated from Standard format by two major sets - Naxxramas "Whispers of an ancient tomb… holding horrors in every room. Ghastly ghouls, poisons galore… but in the shadows lurks something more. Knights of death and abominations… cleaving your bits for new creations. And if by hearthstone and Goblins vs Gnomes "Goblins and gnomes… goblins and gnomes! Both are super-brilliant - but you would never know! Everything they seem to make is faulty or explodes… Perfecting imperfection - goblins and gnomes!" Wild format Goblins vs Gnomes hearthstone - the difference between the two formats will grow over time as more sets are moved to Wild each year, with the latter eventually coming to include exponentially more cards than Standard.

Balance

"The format where anything can happen", while Wild will initially resemble Hearthstone exactly as it always has been, with an ever-increasing pool of cards to choose from, and competitive play focused on the Standard format, Wild format has the potential to become less balanced over time. The developers will "be paying more attention in Standard", with "a little bit of difference of tolerance" to balance problems between the two formats. The removal of design space restrictions for the creation of new cards may also lead to some unusual card interactions, due to performance in Standard format being the priority for designers. Be that as it may, the developers insist they will still pay attention to card balance in Wild format, and act if necessary to prevent it from becoming too unbalanced.

A related issue is stagnation. While Standard format was created to ensure a fresh and regularly shifting meta, as the size of the Wild format card pool continues to increase, the format may in theory become increasingly stale, with each new set making a relatively small impact on the vast range of options available to players. Alternatively, the myriad number of possible combinations may result in an ongoing process of discovery in the format, with each new card finding numerous possible synergies and appropriate deck types. Weaker and more obscure cards may also find a place not feasible within the smaller Standard format selection, thus increasing the range of deck types and strategies far beyond those achievable in Standard.
