hearthstone Americas Region Last Call Preview

5 posts in this topic


The final non-Chinese server qualifier before BlizzCon takes place this weekend. We have listed the players and their decklists in this article, as well as a closer look at Fr0zen's unusual lineup.

The format of the event is single elimination best of seven Conquest. The eight top points earners over the entire HCT year will be taking part, with the winner going to BlizzCon. The players, their HCT points for the year, and their deck archetypes are shown below.

muzzy (120): Token Druid, Mid Hunter, Tempo Mage, Malygos Rogue, Mid Shaman

Fr0zen (116): Camel Hunter, N'Zoth Paladin, Priest, Reno Warlock, C'Thun Warrior

Fr0zen's lineup is an interesting one as he has decided to counter Warrior incredibly strongly. If this lineup runs into Warrior, the plan is to win every game against it and not worry as much about the other classes. With Warrior being a popular class at the moment, it will be interesting to see how this works out for him. 

chessdude123 (102): Malygos Druid, Mid Hunter, Freeze Mage, Mid Shaman, Control Warrior

Bbgungun (101): Token Druid, Face Secret Hunter, Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, 

Nostam (101): Malygos Druid, Secret Hunter (list below), Tempo Mage, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior


Neobility (96): Malygos Druid, Camel Hunter, Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, N'Zoth Warrior

SilentStorm (94): Malygos Druid, Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, C'Thun Warrior

noblord (93): Ramp Druid, Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Control Warrior


The event begins on PlayHearthstone's Twitch from 9pm PDT, which is Midday CEST.

Why is OMG A PRIEST DECK IN A SANCTIONED TOURNAMENT is not all over the preview?

All eyes are on fr0zen at the moment, regardless of how memeing you are. Good news is that he manages to dodge the only non-Control Warrior in the Ro8. Honestly, I haven't seen a 5-deck targeting lineup in a long time, so that would be a delight regardless of outcomes.

But honestly, this Last Call looks like the best in terms of player quality. Here we have 8 really good players who can win the whole thing each. I'm hyped up!

Nostam plays an unusual-ish secret hunter w/ Leeroy and Rag, pirate warrior and aggro shaman. I think those are some interesting choices.

I really wonder how this will work in tournament.

Yeah, Nostam brought something that was similar to fr0zen - a focused, targeting line-up, albeit with Aggresive decks. That was a good strategic idea.

Spoiler :


But they are both out of competition in the Ro8. FeelsBadMan.

      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.
