Hearthstone patch 7.1 adds Ranked checkpoints, rebalances Shaman decks


Hearthstone’s patch 7.1 will be deployed towards the February and it aims to make Ranked more appealing for everyone, setting checkpoints at key milestones.

Ranked Play Floors are essentially these checkpoints, saving your rank every five levels. So if you hit Rank 5, 10, 15, etc, you won’t be able to drop below that during the season, even if you have a losing streak.
