Additional Ranked Play floors and balance changes coming to Hearthstone by the end of February
Ranked Play will be updated to alleviate the anxiety some players have regarding the system and de-ranking. Now, Ranked Play floors are being introduced, meaning that, during a season, a player will no longer be able to drop to a rank lower than previously achieved.
Overusing the Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws in the meta has lead to these cards being nerfed. Small-Time Buccaneer got a decrease in health, and Spirit Claws now cost more mana. These changes will be a part of the update coming at the end of February.
