1 post in this topic


The special edition Celestial Invitational, organized by the well-known Hearthstone Chinese team Team Celestial, concluded yesterday. Lifecoach claimed the first place and $10,000 with it.

The Celestial Invitational featured the 8 previews winners of the Celestial Championship Series held in China only, along with 8 invited international players. These 16 players battled for a total prize pool of $25,000 ($10,000 first, $5,000 second, $2,500 third and fourth, $1,250 fifth to eight place).

The tournament had a Conquest, best out of five format. At a first stage, the players were divided into four groups of four players. Within a group, contestants had to play all nine different classes each in a round robin. Two players qualified from each group into the playoffs. From the quarter-finals and onward, the bracket changed to single elimination, whereas the finalists had to play again all nine different classes (meaning they couldn't play the same decks they used for the quarter and semi-finals).


Even though it seems slightly chaotic, this format allowed the contestants to bring a variety of decks to the tournament. They also had to plan ahead and think which classes to play against which opponent. Finally, the fact that they had to create and win with decks for all nine classes was a true measurement of their individual skill.


In the end, it was Lifecoach who took the crown, with tom60229 placing second, and Kolento and Jiesha taking the third and fourth places. You can watch English VoDs of the Celestial Invitational in DTwo's Youtube channel.

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.

      So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
      2x Innervate 2x Jade Idol MSG 2x Living Roots TGT 2x Raven Idol LoE 2x Wild Growth 2x Wrath 2x Feral Rage TOG 2x Jade Blossom MSG 2x Swipe 2x Nourish 2x Jade Behemoth MSG 2x Jade Spirit MSG 2x Azure Drake 2x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 2x Arcane Giant Kara But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.
