hearthstone Hearthstone Team Story China Week 11 Round-Up

1 post in this topic



Team Story is a Chinese team league which I am part of the English casting crew for on Twitch. The format of each match involves three players using two decks each from six different classes in a best of 11 conquest. The winnner of that match gets two points in the league. In a twist to more conventional formats, the remaining three classes have to be played by a fourth member of the team in a best of 5 match for 1 point. Teams will play each other twice each with the top four advancing to a stepladder style playoff.

Week 11 saw teams starting to change their strategies in response to their current standing. Teams near the bottom of the league were taking bigger chances with their lineups in an attempt to get the full three points, while teams higher up were playing it safe. 
Team Celestial won 3-0 against Vici Gaming which puts them within one point of securing the top spot already. Their team will be stronger going forward too, with Zoro and Zihao back from their efforts at the World Championships.
Back in week 7, TongFu had a chance to tie Celestial at the top of the table. This week they lost 3-0 to World Elite and they are now 12 points away from the lead. This week they fielded Valeera who had not been seen for many weeks and he had a bad day going 1-4 in his matches. World Elite have become a very consistent unit, fielding a combination of the same five players week after week, looking comfortable in each other's presence and playing better quality Hearthstone. Moyan in particular has notably improved as the league has progressed.
The other two matches also produced no surprises with EDward Gaming beating Invictus Gaming 3-0 and Yolo Miracle taking a 2-1 win over bottom of the table Newbee. This means that there is finally some separation between the top four and the other teams with only three weeks left to go.

      The new build adds 35 new dailies, buffs to Murlocs, bug fixes and preparations for future content!
      A new patch has hit the Hearthstone servers, preparing the ground for the upcoming Heroic Tavern Brawl and bringing new dailies, changes to Murloc cards, achievements and more!
      As we've already said, this build added some textures for the Heroic Tavern Brawl (which were datamined by Hearthpwn) and it also adds  the BlizzCon 2016 card back. Moreover, Murloc cards that affected ALL Murlocs now only affect friendly ones. There are also several bug fixes. Here are the patch notes:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      In this Hearthstone update, we're making balance changes to several cards and fixing several bugs. Read on for details!
      Ethereal Peddler now reads “Battlecry: If you’re holding any non-Rogue class cards, reduce their Cost by (2).” This was done to make it more clear, especially with upcoming releases. The following Murlocs that affected ALL Murlocs now only affect friendly ones, to improve the Murloc mirror-match. These cards are not eligible for a full dust refund. Grimscale Oracle now reads “Your other Murlocs have +1 Attack.” Coldlight Seer now reads “Battlecry: Give your other Murlocs +2 Health.” Murloc Tidecaller now reads “Whenever you summon a Murloc, gain +1 Attack.” Murloc Warleader now reads “Your other Murlocs have +2/+1.” One Night in Karazhan cards will now show up with the same frequency as other card sets in the Arena The following bugs have been squashed: Yogg-Saron, Hope’s End now properly applies the Overload effect when it casts a spell with Overload. Sir Finley Mrrgglton no longer offers Lesser Heal as an option of Hero Powers to Discover when played by Tyrande. Casting Entomb on a transformed minion will no longer reveal the minion’s identity if it gets drawn again. Gladiator’s Longbow now properly prevents damage caused by Explosive Trap. The following card back has been added: Welcome Inn – Acquired by attending BlizzCon 2016 or purchasing a Virtual Ticket for BlizzCon 2016. Many new daily quests have been added. For more information, including a more comprehensive list of bug fixes, please visit our Forums.
      (source) What are these new daily quests? Well, they were datamined (along with a lot of other stuff) by Hearthpwn. In total, the new dailies are around 35 in number! The 40 Gold ones involve playing 30 class cards for each class. There is a variety of new 50 Gold quests;  their concept involves around playing a specific amount of a particular archetype or kind of cards, like Play 20 Beasts, Play 10 Weapons or Play 15 Overload Minions. The 60 Gold quests require you to play 50 class cards. Lastly, there are two new 100 Gold quests: Murlocalypse - Play 75 Murlocs and Cry Havoc - Play 75 Battlecry minions.
      Other datamined data include three new achievements that award three Classic card packs each:
      Return of the Hero - Defeat the 3 challengers! Ready for Action - Play 30 cards in Play mode Back in the Game! - Deal 100 damage to enemy heroes There are also six achievements, awarding The Grand Tournament packs, that are tied to the BlizzCon promotion - we will discuss this in another article!
      Ultimately, a returning player challenge with three missions has appeared, as well as a possible Innkeeper challenge.

      So Blizzard gave us the opportunity to choose and root for a player during the HS World Championship 2016.
      You win in-game prizes for every win they get. Everyone gets a pack for just picking one of the contenders. 
      So who's your pick?

      ShiftCon has arrived for the second time in the Hearthstone tavern!
      It was announced yesterday that we wouldn't be getting the Heroic Tavern Brawl this week. The possible dates for it are either October 26 (next week) or November 2.
      Instead, we are getting a repeat brawl: ShiftCon. Your deck is filled with Shifter Zerus and some random class spells, while you start at 3 mana. This Tavern Brawl offers a good balance of skill and luck, since you have to decide if you should play your transformed Zerus at the given turn (if you can) or hold on to it.
      With the preparations for the Heroic Tavern Brawl underway, it was expected that we would be getting a repeat brawl this week. This is the 71th Tavern Brawl.
