Hearthstone is getting a meta shake-up next week

The current Hearthstone meta, as you know it, might not be sticking around for long. One of the card game's designers took to Twitter to reveal that some of Hearthstone's best decks are getting hit with some balance changes when update 20.0.2 arrives next week.

"Balance changes to go out early next week with 20.0.2," lead designer Alec Dawson explains. "We'll be targeting some cards in Mage, Paladin, Rogue, and Neutral. Hoping to create more space for experimentation in the early Barrens meta and have a more diverse field of classes. Six changes in total, details [are] coming soon."

Hearthstone's latest expansion, Forged in the Barrens, released only last month. Since getting a peep at it during BlizzCon in February, we've seen a steady reveal of cards and a big balance patch that involved one permanent nerf and 36 temporary unnerfs before the expansion went live. Looking at HSReplay.net, you can see the dominant decks right now. Paladin leads the way with a 57.3% win rate in standard, with Mage, Hunter, and Rogue following on closely behind.
