hearthstone Hearthstone: Red Bull Interview With Thijs

1 post in this topic


Red Bull have conducted an interview with European Champion, and World Championship semi-finalist, Thijs. Thijs was one of the very best players last season and it is interesting to see his take on things.

In the interview, he is asked about his life as a pro player. This encompasses travel, tournaments, and his preparation. He is also asked about how he feels Blizzard are doing, both with expansions to the game, and the new World Championship format.

Two things stood out to me in the interview. Firstly, is his use of statistics to predict which decks people will bring to tournaments. Preparing for your opponents is becoming more and more widely recognized as an important factor in high level tournaments and the best players refer to it often. Secondly, it stood out just how positive he is as a person. I alluded to this in my Know your players series, and it's nice to see that his ego-boosting year hasn't changed his superb attitude.

      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).
