‘Hearthstone Mercenaries’ uses AI to populate slow PvP queues (www.nme.com)

Hearthstone Mercenaries includes a new PvP mode known as the Fighting Pit – but you could end up facing a bot if nobody else is queuing.

Blizzard developers have come up with a new way of ensuring you still get a decent match up if nobody else is queuing for PvP – facing you off against AI.

Hearthstone lead game producer Gloria Zhang explained that this new AI system will help players who can’t seem to find a game.

When it comes to matchmaking, Hearthstone Mercenaries uses a combination of skill-based MMR and your party’s level to determine which players make a decent match up.

Hearthstone Mercenaries, a new RPG style game mode, has launched within Hearthstone today on Android, iOS and PC.
