Day Nine of the WePlay League was the final day of the league stages, and with only Super_JJ and Xixo guaranteed to make the last four, there were still two places for Wednesday's finals up for grabs. The format for this event is best of five Last Hero Standing with a ban.

 

The first two games were played off-air. Mr.Yagut beat Xixo 3-1 and Xixo beat Kaldi 3-0. 
 
The first game on stream was Eloise vs Zalae. Zalae needed to win two matches in a row to guarantee a playoff spot, but fell behind as Eloise's Fast Druid beat his Midrange Paladin. As it turned out though, Mid Druid dominated the entire match, with Zalae winning the mirror match and then beating Zoo and Paladin to win the match 3-1 and keep his playoff hopes alive.
 
Next up was a match that was effectively a qualifier for both players. Mr.Yagut with a 3-2 record taking on Zalae on 3-3. The winner was guaranteed a top four finish. For the second match in a row, Druid dominated proceedings as Mr.Yagut swept through Rouge, Paladin and Druid in quick time as Zalae suffered a series of poor draws. At this point Druid had won all seven matches played on the day.
 
The final match was Ryzen vs Mr.Yagut with Ryzen looking to advance to a 4-3 record which would qualify him for the final day. Mr.Yagut opened with Druid and secured the Druid's eighth straight win by taking down Ryzen's Tempo Mage.  Ryzen countered with Paladin which then got countered by Rogue which left Mr.Yagut 2-1 in front. This cset up the game that many viewers wanted to see; two of the best Rogue streamers on Twitch playing against each other with a lot on the line in a Rogue mirror match. On this occasion Ryzen emerged victorious which set up a deciding game against Shaman which he duly converted to clinch the fourth playoff spot.

Mr.Yagut 3-1 Xixo
Xixo 3-0 Kaldi
Zalae 3-1 Eloise

      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.

      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)

      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)
