hearthstone 2015 Hearthstone World Championship

Blizzard has formally announced that there will be a 2015 Hearthstone World Championship. This is unsurprising, given the heavy emphasis that the company has continued to place on eSports across their titles. Details on this year's qualifying process are still sparse.

 

Lacking some of the structure and formality of Blizzard's WCS system for Starcraft, the Hearthstone World Championship (HSWC?) process could absolutely use further clarity. In addition, the open question lingers as to whether or not Blizzard will update or improve their tournament format.

 

With the surge of interest in Hearthstone across online tournaments, as a streaming title, and drawing attention from other TCG/CCG spaces, this year's tournament scene is set to be even more competitive than previous years. It's also very possible that another content update could arrive in the spring/summer, adding further complexity to the game leading up to the year-end world championship (likely at BlizzCon).

 

There are a number of wish list items left unaddressed in terms of the competitive scene for Hearthstone; the new Spectator mode is nice, if somewhat insufficient, but hopefully with the time they have Blizzard will iterate on the in-client spectating functionality and/or how they serve up streams of the major regional and championship tournaments.

 

Will you be following the competitive Hearthstone scene in 2015?

 

The first bits of information regarding Blizzard's global championship tournament series for Hearthstone have started to emerge.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
