Hearthstone (Battlegrounds) Gameplay Walkthrough Playlist – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8wZKON07iXUMorGgWAx1sstR3Df9mO0D
Battlegrounds is a game mode where eight players face off in 1v1 rounds, with the goal to be the last player standing. Each round consists of two phases. The Recruit Phase lets players purchase and sell minions, upgrade the tavern, use their hero power, and rearrange their minions’ attack order. Combat Phase has minions automatically attacking the opponents’ until one player (or both) has no minions remaining, at which point the victor attacks the loser directly.
Unlike other play modes, Battlegrounds has a set of cards totally unique to itself (although many are functionally identical to collectible cards) as well as a pool of specialized heroes. All Battlegrounds cards are available from the beginning.
Battlegrounds is significantly different from all other play modes in Hearthstone, featuring completely different mechanics from anything previously seen. There is no mana: instead, the only resource is Coins (similar to the Bartender Bob, Bartendotron, and Bazaar Bob encounters from previous Single-player adventures). All minions cost 3 Coins, with the power of minions instead dictated by their Tavern Tier, shown in the usual place of mana on the card interface. Minions do not attack the opponent directly – rather, surviving minions add Tavern Tier to the hero’s attack once the round is over.
Battlegrounds was first revealed at BlizzCon 2019 on November 1, where attendees could try out the new game mode first-hand. Shortly after BlizzCon, closed beta started on November 5 and Battlegrounds was available for free to all players who attended BlizzCon, purchased a BlizzCon virtual ticket, or pre-purchased the new expansion Descent of Dragons. During the week that followed, players who watched participating Hearthstone streamers on Twitch could earn a Twitch drop for Battlegrounds Early Access and start playing with the game mode as well, in closed beta. Open beta soon followed a week later at 10am PT on November 12, opening for free to the public for all players.
