options.txt in user documents folder

Mac Technical Support
Hello, why is file with saved options (resolution, fullscreen (on/off), etc.) locate in user documents folder ?

Users/myusername/Documents/Library/Application Support/Blizzard/Hearthstone/options.txt

Mac OS X has Library folder where this files may be saved. The right path will be.

Users/myusername/Library/Application Support/Blizzard/Hearthstone/options.txt (without Documents folder)

Thx for fix this.
Heh so that's where that is.

Disclaimer : I'm not a developer.

Right now it's there because that's where the game has chosen to save it and load some of it's options from.

IMHO and coming from a tech support side of things I don't think it really matters where that settings file is. As long as it's well documented where it is.

But again I'm not one of the devs and it would be nice to be more consistent in terms of where the settings files are stored. Nice but not essential IMHO.

It would make sense to not have it under Documents and just have it USER/Library/Application Support/Blizzard where they already have files for other games. Storing a game options file in the users documents folder is asking for it to get deleted by accident.
Indeed seems like a bug.
