Phil Xavier

Phil Xavier @redlikethesun — Phil Xavier, also known as Red, began his Blizzard adventure many years ago, with such titles as Rock N' Roll Racing and Blackthorne -- but it was the one-two punch of Warcraft II and Diablo that really took hold of his nerdy heart. He is also deeply interested in other games, especially for the Switch (but without ignoring the PC and PS4), and in discussions about game design (and game-making) in general. There is a place called rcnsk.com where he writes stuff unrelated to Blizzard Watch, but the truth is that there's nothing really in there yet.

Spells are coming to Hearthstone Battlegrounds to make your matches spicier

You've read that right: spells are coming to Hearthstone Battlegrounds — though it's what the official Hearthstone Twitter account calls a "limited-time mechanic." Starting tomorrow, your Battlegrounds games are about to become a little spicier, as every four turns, you'll be able to Discover a Battleground-specific spell, called "prizes." So you can pick a spell on turn 4, another on turn 8, one more on turn 12, and a final one on turn 16 (if the game is still going by then, of course).
