hearthstone November 2016 Ranked Play Season: Over the Halfhill

5 posts in this topic

The November Ranked Play Season starts today, and the reward for reaching Rank 20 will be the elusive Halfhill card back.

The Halfhill card back was originally scheduled for July, but was replaced by the Tinyfin Beach one. The reason for the delay was never revealed, but it seems unlikely that it will be connected with the next set, as the card back has been in the game since April. It is however always a possibility, sets are planned a long time in advance.

November is also the first month of the 2017 Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT). Although details as to point allocation have not yet been revealed, it seems likely that points will be awarded for reaching Legend, and scale up for reaching high Legend. If the 2016 World Championship is inspiring you, now is a good time to start gathering those points for next year!

November 2016 will be the 32nd Ranked Play Season.

Isn't it a bit Orwellian that there's mystery surrounding the Halfhill card back?  Why doesn't Blizzard just tell us their inspiration for each card back?  A little back story wouldn't hurt - not everyone's up on WoW lore.

I agree with this. A lot of the card backs are good, but not great. Knowing what it related to, either in lore, or just in Hearthstone, would definitely add some flavour.

On the pc version in your card back collection there is typically trivial information on the card back that sometimes eludes to the lore.

However if your interested in the full story search most cards backs names and clicking on a wiki link should yield results. Most card backs are named after characters or locations in wow.

Awesome, thanks :)
