hearthstone Hearthstone Team Story China Week 12 Round-Up

1 post in this topic

Team Story is a Chinese team league, which I am part of the 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 one point. The top four teams will advance to a stepladder format playoff.


Week 12 gave several teams the chance to clinch playoff spots, and gave Celestial the chance to come top of the league, which would secure them a place in the final. In their way stood Yolo Miracle, one of the success stories of recent weeks. Yolo Miracle feature both SleepyShaman, who reached the semi-finals of the 2014 Gold Series Grand Finals, and Robin, who recently qualified for the StarSeries Grand Finals. Yolo Miracle won the match 3-0 to move into second place and keep their chances of topping the table alive.
 
The final match of the week was between EDward Gaming and TongFu, with EDward needing 2 points to eliminate TongFu from contention, and to almost assure themselves a place in the playoffs. Bingxuan took down the ace match 3-2 over RayAllen to give EDward the first point, and they looked set to sweep the series when they led 5-3 in the main match. However Yinian could not get a win with control Warrior, due to a series of bad draws, and TongFu kept their slim hopes of qualifiaction alive with a 2-1 match win.
 
In the other two matches, World Elite beat Invictus Gaming 3-0 to put them out of contention and Vici stayed in with a chance of reaching the playoffs by beating Newbee 2-1.

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a repeat of Double Deathrattler Battler. It is a Brawl where you use your own cards to build a deck. Every Deathrattle will trigger twice.
      Although this is a repeat Brawl, it has been a long time since it was last used, September 2015 in fact, and many things in the game have changed since then. In that regard it can be treated as a fresh Brawl. I would like to see this idea of waiting a long time between reusing a Brawl be implemented more often, to help keep them fresh.
      On top of trying to win games, I expect lots of people to have fun experimenting with Weasel Tunneler, as many of its interactions do not work correctly, as per our previous article.

      It does seem as if cards from the Curse of Naxxramas adventure will be very good in this Brawl. Baron Rivendare doesn't stack however, meaning you don't get four times the Deathrattles if he is in play!

      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.
