Group C of the SL i-League StarSeries has been completed and two more qualifiers for the second group stage, from where the players can advance to the $50,000 LAN finals, have been decided.

 

The players in Group C were:

 

  • Kolento - Winner of five major championships.
  • Orange - Winner of Seat Story Cup III
  • Purple - Winner of recent America's Championship and DreamHack Winter
  • Surrender - OGN Hearthstone Masters KR 2 winner
  • Kranich 2015 Asia/Pacific champion

 

Kolento won his first three games to secure a place in the second group stage which meant that Surrender would need to win his last two games to qualify.

 

First up for him was Kolento and his lineup of Mid Paladin, Fast Druid and Trogg Shaman. Surrender won the Secret vs Mid Paladin grind to take a 1-0 lead and then beat Druid with Malylock and Patron to sweep Kolento and make his last match a decider.

 

The final match between Surrender and Purple was a slow and tense affair which started with a Malylock mirror match. Both players played a series of early dragons to try to establish the board but it was Purple, who recently won Dreamhack with a dominant display with the deck, who took the first win. Purple then chose to play Control Warrior, a decision that seemed to be a great choice when Surrender chose to play Patron. Surrender however managed to keep drawing cards and keep up the pressure and eventually levelled the series 1-1. His Malylock and Paladin had easier times and after some tricky play from both players having to work around Nerub'ar Weblord that was generated by a Piloted Shredder, Surrender emerged victorious to advance to the second stage.

 

 

Group C Matches Games
Surrender 3-1 11-4
Kolento 3-1 9-5
Kranich 2-2 8-10
Orange 1-3 6-10
Purple 1-3 6-11
 
 
With one group left to finish that means that so far the tournament situation for the Global group is as follows:

Qualified for last call:  Hoej, StrifeCro, JAB, Xixo, Kranich, Orange

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
