hearthstone One Nation of Gamers Finals at PAX West

1 post in this topic


The One Nation of Gamers (ONOG) Circuit finals at Pax West starts today, September 2. It is the first big tournament to use all four wings of One Night in Karazhan.

ONOG have been running open qualifiers for this event over the last few months to reach a top eight which will be played at PAX West. The qualified players will play best of seven Conquest in the group stage to seed the top eight. They will then play double elimination in the knockout stages. The top two from each group will be seeded in the upper bracket, while the bottom two will start in the lower bracket and have a difficult route if they are to win the event. The groups are shown below:

Group A: Eversiction, Dog, Phonetap, Fr0zen

Group B: Shoop, Duhcodda, Chakki, Dart

One Nation of Gamers is an organisation which focuses on giving strong amateur players a chance to compete alongside the professionals, and potentially kickstart their careers. Thanks to their sponsors, GEICO Gaming, the circuit paid out over $10,000 in prize money, and will pay out $25,000 for the finals.

The event will run from Friday 2 September until Monday 5 September and can be viewed on ONOG's Twitch channel. Each day begins at 10pm CEST. With the format being a very long one, we should get a good look at how the new meta might shape up.

      Did somebody play a bolster warrior deck at blizzcon or something? I've seen 3 bolster warrior decks in a row today.
      I don't think I've seen that card used since the day after the expansion dropped and everyone figured out it was bad. Now overnight suddenly its a thing again.

      Blizzard have been teasing the new expansion again, this time in the form of The Gadgetzan Gazette newspaper.
      The first edition to be released was Volume 32 Number 7 and talks about the first unrobbable bank in Gadgetzan. The line "Citizens can see the new building for themselves when the First Bank of Gadgetzan opens to the public with a ribbon-cutting ceremony next week" is encouraging. Presumably this means we will get a reveal of the new set at BlizzCon.

      Volume 37 Number 8 talks about Gadgetzan Port. Other than the ongoing themes of money, trade, and greed, the main point of interest from a Hearthstone point of view is the mention of "Secret dragon people". With lots of Dragon cards rotating out in the new year, it will be encouraging to fans of Dragons that they seem likely to be replenished in Gadgetzan.

      Hearthstone esports will be even bigger in 2017. Not only will there be a bigger Championship Tour, but there will be other global events as well.
      Due to the success of the 2016 Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT), it is easy to forget that this is only the third year of competitive Hearthstone. Blizzard have been working hard on improving this for 2017, and have recently announced their plans for next year.
      The changes to the HCT itself are pretty spectacular. There will be a global Season Championship instead of regional ones, and they will be held at locations that allow spectators, rather than in a closed studio. Season Championships will include 4 players from each region (Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and China). These players will be decided using regional Playoffs (to replace Preliminaries), and they will use the Swiss Tournament format. 
      The Championships will be synched with Standard. This should mean that the meta is always fresh during the Championship events, and will hopefully reward deckbuilding. Magic: The Gathering uses this format already, and it is something that should greatly benefit Hearthstone viewing. On top of these changes, points and cups have been tidied up, and the prize pool for the year has been set at $2 million.
      There will also be Hearthstone Global Games, which is a world team league featuring teams from different countries, and Inn-vitationals, which will include streamers and celebrities in a more light hearted setting.
      I think that these changes will make a huge difference to our viewing experience in 2017. What do you think? As always, feel free to comment below.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is Captain Blackheart's Treasure. It is the fourth time that this Brawl has been used.
      Captain Blackheart's Treasure was most recently used as the  63rd Tavern Brawl, in late August. This week is the 72nd Tavern Brawl, so as you can see, it is a pretty quick repeat. In this Brawl you are given a deck full of Bloodsail Raiders, and each turn are offered a choice of three cards to put into your hand.
      As always, I would remind people that I feel this is a more skillful Brawl than it first appears. It teaches a lot about planning ahead, and also tempo in general. Given that players can play this Brawl with no cards of their own, I am a big fan of this Brawl from a design standpoint.
      Captain Blackheart's Treasure was originally designed to showcase the Discover mechanic for The League of Explorers. It actually made its debut late however, as it was withdrawn due to technical issues.
