How is your Hearthstone experience at the moment? Most of you will be aware that Hearthstone patch 188.8.131.5214 has just gone live and with it, one major balance change that is getting everyone talking at the moment.
The Hearthstone May patch had been highly anticipated before launch and players were anxious to find out if their important Hearthstone deck strategy had been impacted.
We can tell you that the Hearthstone update patch notes have gone live too and it does confirm one massive change. Blizzard has revealed that they have now altered the Unleash the Hounds (Hunter) card, making it now cost 3, an increase from 2 on the last version.
The developers have explained their reasoning for this in a lengthy blog post here adding that it took the team a considerable amount of time to decide that this was the best way forward for the future of the game in terms of balance.

As you can imagine though, the change has brought divided opinion from players who are both happy and unhappy about the change. Some users believe that this change to the Hounds was not the number one problem, but rather the combos that were possible with it.
Do you feel that this was ultimately a good change for Hearthstone or not? Was Unleash the Hounds overpowered in your opinion? Read through the full patch notes and let us know what you would like to see in the next Hearthstone update.
