Alpha patch (unknown date)

From Hearthstone Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This article charts the oldest-known card data, from an unknown date prior to Patch 1.0.0.3140 (believed to have been made April or May 2013).

The data is not a patch or list of patch changes as such, but a list of known differences between this patch and Patch 1.0.0.3140. Certain changes depict multiple iterations to cards between the two versions, such as Southsea Deckhand's "Sharpened" enchantment changing its text in a minor way, while Southsea Deckhand itself changes its effect such that the enchantment is no longer needed. A number of changes also are not documented in Patch 1.0.0.3140. These factors suggest that this patch is not an immediate precursor to Patch 1.0.0.3140, but predates it by multiple patches; the changes were likely made with an earlier patch, and thus were not documented with the subsequent Patch 1.0.0.3140.

List of known differences[edit | edit source]

Following are all known changes to cards between this patch and Patch 1.0.0.3140. Only card names and descriptions are included.

Not documented[edit | edit source]

Assuming the unofficial patch notes for Patch 1.0.0.3140 were comprehensive, the below changes should describe changes between two (or more) undocumented alpha patches, prior to the release of Patch 1.0.0.3140 . However, it is possible some of these changes in fact took place with Patch 1.0.0.3140, but were not documented at the time. Changes to enchantments also are usually not documented in patch notes, meaning many of these may be from Patch 1.0.0.3140.
