1 post in this topic

The third China vs Europe Championship is over, and the Ferrari promised for winning is finally in the hands of one of the Chinese players. Team Newbee's Ruoji (also known as Lovelychook) beat Kolento 3-2 in the final, to become the first Chinese winner of the event. The format was best of five Conquest, with a ban.

As previously reported, the European lineup for the event was incredibly strong, leading to most people to believe that China did not have much chance of winning. Heading into the semi-final stage, not many had changed their minds, as Lovelychook was the sole Chinese representative left in the event. Europe's remaining players were SuperJJKolento, and current World Champion, Ostkaka.

Lovelychook beat Superjj 3-0 to reach the final. Kolento beat Ostkaka 3-2.

In the final, Kolento, who won this event last time around, banned Rogue, while Lovelychook banned Shaman. Lovelychook opened up with his Face Shaman in game one, while Kolento chose to start with N'Zoth Paladin. Kolento went down to 2 life, but managed to stabilise with Forbidden Healing, and took a 1-0 lead. Lovelychook stayed with the Shaman for the second game. Kolento queued up Rogue, which is a bad matchup for him, and the scores were soon level at 1-1.

Kolento stayed with Rogue for game three. Lovelychook played his Tempo Mage, which included Cabalist's Tome,  and Yogg-Saron, Hope's End. Kolento got a removal heavy start to clear up the early threats. In turn six he cycled Fan of Knives into his Gadgetzan Auctioneer, and was able to turn that into a 2-1 lead. In game four, Lovelychook managed to get control of the early board with his Mage against Hunter. He did have to rely on Yogg-Saron to clear the board near the end, but his position held to set up a final game. The final matchup was his Anyfin Can Happen Paladin against Kolento's Hunter. The Paladin deck barely missed a beat, and Lovelychook became the first Chinese champion of this event. His record through his five matches was an impressive 15-3.

Lovelychook took home the $22,000 first prize, and a Ferrari CaliforniaT valued at around $162,000. This puts him above Firebat as the top prize winner of all time. He will, however, need to get his driver's license if he intends to show off his new prize!

      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.
