Hearthstone 18.4.2 patch makes a number of Battlegrounds adjustments, like removing Pogo Hopper

Ragnaros Hearthstone Patch 18.4.2 notes

Our condolences, Pogo Hopper fans — the robotic rabbit whose power grew dependent on how many Pogo Hoppers had been played in a game will soon be shifting out of Hearthstone‘s Battlegrounds mode alongside Whirlwind Tempest and Battlegrounds Hero Bartendotron.

Some other changes in Hearthstone 18.4.2 patch include adjustments to Ragnaras’ Battlegrounds Hero Power “DIE, INSECTS!,” and “Sulfuras,”; Maiev Shadowsong’s “Imprison” Hero Power; as well as Tier adjustments for Selfless Hero, Deadly Spore and more.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
