i’ve tweeted about the glitch in first image before, when you play Sap, returning an enemy minion to your opponents’ hand. the next two images are the result of me playing Vanish and then playing Sap afterward.
the minions are no longer in play but from my perspective, are face down, in the background, wherever they were on the field, not impeding vision.
the glitch in the fourth image however does impede vision of the opponent’s field. my opponent, Neph, just played the card Headcrack (3 Mana, Deal 2 damage to enemy hero, Combo: Return this to your hand next turn) triggering the combo.
all during my next turn, the card hovered over his field blocking vision of his minions until Headcrack returned from the ether into his hand on his next turn.
the cards: Sap + Vanish (i’m sure it happens with Freezing Trap as well, though i don’t have the card myself to confirm) are my Spells interacting with my opponent’s minions, returning them to their hand. whereas Headcrack is a Spell my opponent plays that is returned to their hand if the combo is triggered.
it’s important to note that cards like Youthful + Ancient Brewmaster and Shadowstep don’t have these visual glitches. cards that my opponent plays interacting with his own minions.
these are just visual glitches that don’t break any of the gameplay mechanics but since Hearthstone is still in Beta, i figure i’d try and report my findings like any good tester. loving the game btw. thanks Blizzard! ♥~ -J.A
