2014 Hearthstone World Championship Qualifying Community Tournaments


The 2014 Hearthstone World Championship Qualifier tournaments are coming up, and Blizzard is giving players even more opportunities to qualify for these tournaments by awarding seeds to the winners of certain Community-run tournaments from now until August. The winners of these events will have a chance to participate in the World Championship Qualifiers for their respective regions. This means that playing in NA events will award seeds for the NA qualifiers, and European events for the EU qualifiers, and so on. Blizzard will add more tournaments to this list as time goes on, and some of these events will run weekly so there'll be even more chances to qualify! Be sure to check out the current list -- good luck!

Check out the Blizzard post for full qualifier information and list of scheduled events!

It's Not Too Late For Fireside Friends!


Haven't earned your Fireside Friends card back yet? Don't worry, it's not too late! Liquidhearth maintains a list of upcoming Fireside Gathering events, so if you're looking to get out and meet some people and play some Hearthstone (and just so happen to be lucky enough to be in the right area for it), head out to one of these events! It also wouldn't be too hard to host an event of your own, just get things going at a nearby coffee shop or on campus! Remember, to earn the card back, you must play three matches against another player on the same network using the following criteria:
  • At least three people (including yourself) must be logged into Hearthstone on the same subnet.
  • Each match must be played against a player that is playing on the same subnet as you.
  • These matches can be played against your friends or using the Player Near Me feature, as long as the above two criteria are met.

Frequently Reported Issues - Not Bugs!


I noticed that Blizzard has been maintaining a great list of frequently reported issues which are not actually bugs, but rather misunderstandings of game mechanics and cards! This list is updated as needed and contains some great clarification on some commonly misunderstood cards that end up getting reported on the Bug Report forum. This list may help clear up some confusion or issues that may come up in-game, so its definitely worth a look! There's definitely a handful of more situations that I hope we can see up here. If you do have any questions about specific card mechanics, be sure to check out our latest Hearthstone site feature for a more in-depth look at the cards!

Blizzard Icon Reported Issues That May Not Be Bugs


Hello!

Below you will find commonly reported issues that cause a bit of misunderstanding and lead to players thinking something isn't working as intended. If you experience one of these issues and they still seem to not be working correctly, never hesitate to report the issue to us. This thread is to hopefully clear up some questions players may have. Cheers!

Blade Flurry is doing extra damage!
Blade Flurry is a Rogue ability that destroys the player's weapon and deals the weapons damage to all enemies. Even though the weapon has a set amount, Blade Flurry is still a spell and can be affected by Spell Power.

All my decks and/or cards vanished!
Majority of the time this issue is seen it is due to the players region being changed. Double check that the region you are currently in is the one you regularly play in.

My opponent stole my minion. When I bounced it to the owners hand, it went to their hand!
If you control a minion, you own that minion. Ownership is based off which side of the battlefield a minion is on. When returning a minion to its owners hand, it will return to the hand of the player who controls that minion on their side of the battlefield at the time the effect is played.

My Noble Sacrifice didn't trigger when my opponent attacked!
Did you have 7 minions on the battlefield? Playing cards that create minions act the exact same way as trying to play a minion. If you don't have room, the card will not trigger.

Minions healed when I killed/silenced Stormwind Champion (or other buffs)!
At the time you Silence a minion who is effected by a stat modifier, if their health is higher than their printed value (the value the minion displays with no stat modifiers), it will return the minion to its original health that is displayed on the card. If at the time Silence is cast, the minions current health is less than the printed value on the card, the minion will remain on the battlefield with that much damage.

Gorehowl was destroyed after one use!
The mistake here is usually in understanding the card. If a player attacks a hero, the durability is reduced. If a player attacks a minion, the attack is reduced.

Ice block did not prevent my opponents secret from killing me!
If you are attacking and in a position to trigger your opponent's secret, it is most likely your turn. As secret's cannot trigger on the owning player's turn, there is no chance for Ice Block to become active.

My opponent was able to attack my Faerie Dragon with their hero power!
Even though you are not able to target the Faerie dragon with spells, you are able to attack the Faerie Dragon. So Rogues and Druids are able to use their hero powers to deal damage to the minion.

As always, there can be exceptions. Please always feel free to report anything that seems "off" Thanks!
