Group D of the SL i-League StarSeries has been completed and the final two 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 D were:
  • StanCifka - Winner of StarSeries 1 and DreamHack Bucharest 2015
  • Lifecoach - Winner of Celestial Invitational last week
  • Dog - 5th/6th StarSeries 1 and many to four major finishes
  • Hotform - Runner up 2015 World Championships
  • Cipher - Regular top eight in major championships.

Other than the high standard of play, this group was notable for a couple of mathematical quirks. On the first day of the group, each player won one match and lost one match and on the second day, every match was a 3-0 win!
 
After the level first day, it was always going to come down to whether anyone could win both of their second day matches and if Hotform could take down Dog in the last match of the day, all players would have won two matches. However Dog's lineup of Rogue, Paladin and Mage was enough for a sweep victory which enabled him to top the group. 
 
Second place went to the last tiebreaker before "Random" as Lifecoach had beaten StanCifka, StanCifka had beaten Cipher and Cipher had beaten Lifecoach. All of their matches ending 3-0. Lifecoach however had a better games difference across the whole league and claimed the second slot in the second group stage. The other two will play in the last call, while Hotform has been eliminated.
 
 

Group D Matches Games
Dog 3-1 10-5
Lifecoach 2-2 8-6
Cipher 2-2 8-7
StanCifka 2-2 6-8
Hotform 1-3 5-11

 
The second group stages start today and the lineups look like this:
 
Group A:   Thijs   Surrender   JAB   Dog

Group B:  Amaz   Kolento   Trump   Lifecoach

      The community card reveals begin with a Paladin card with Twinspell.
      Lightforged Blessing was revealed in a video with a catchy song by Japanese site Dekki.

      Every recent expansion has a card printed for Heal Paladin and Rise of Shadows is no exception. While it may not seem exciting at first glance, Lightforged Blessing can work really well with Wild Pyromancer and Immortal Prelate. Obviously this card isn't made to be used early, since Heal and Control Paladin don't really have early board presence, and one copy of it should be enough, since it has Twinspell. The other issue is that no matter how much support Heal Paladin keeps getting and even though its concept is well made, it never really took off as an archetype.

      The reveal period for Rise of Shadows kicks off with the customary reveal stream.
      Peter Whalen was joined by Chris Sierra and Cora "Songbird" Georgiou and they revealed a total of 12 cards. We also got an interesting tidbit of information as callbacks and Lackeys will be limited to the E.V.I.L classes, while the Twinspell Keyword will be available only to the Defenders of Dalaran.
      With Dr. Boom as his Legendary minion, Warrior is all about mechs and more importantly bombs!




      Rogue's leader is King Togwaggle who brings back Treasures.


      Rogue has another callback mechanic: Unidentified!

      Two potential Contracts were revealed; there are four in total.


      Mage is all about minions again. Maybe it will work this time!



      And here are two neutrals that were also revealed:


      The final reveal stream will take place on April 3rd and it will be presented by Dean "Iksar" Ayala, Brian Kibler and Chris Sierra. You can check out the schedule for the upcoming community reveals here.

      The Fortune Teller and member of the League of E.V.I.L is a Legendary minion for Priest.
      Madame Lazul was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter:
      Even though her effect is slightly unoriginal and perhaps not worthy of an orange gem, it's quite flavourful for Madame Lazul to be able to see through your opponent's hand. She can fill Curious Glimmerroot's place quite well. On the other hand, Chameleos offered a bit more insight on the opponent's hand and it wasn't really played in any serious decks. Lazul is more versatile thanks to the Discover effect.
      What's your take on this card?

      We also learn that the 5 Lackeys shown in the announcement video are all Lackeys we'll get for Rise of Shadows. More of them will be recruited in the upcoming expansions.

      Ever since the announcement of the Hearthstone Masters system, the details on the final tier - Hearthstone Grandmasters - have been a mystery. However, Tom Matthiesen from Inven Global has released some info on its format, prize pool and invited players.
      According to Inven Global, Hearthstone Grandmasters will have a league structure. It will consist of two seasons per year, with each season lasting eight weeks. Each region will have 16 players, who will be divided into two groups of eight. Europe and the Americas seem to be paired together, while it's not defined how Hearthstone Grandmasters will work for other regions.
      Inven has even acquired the names of 15 European participants and 13 from the Americas. They are all well-known pro players like Bunnyhoppor, Pavel, Thijs, Kolento, RDU, Firebat, Muzzy, Dog, Purple and more! The last four players will be determined by the results of the upcoming World Championship.
      Participants will play twice a week, facing off against each other in a double round-robin system. Hearthstone Grandmasters conclude with global finals. After the two seasons have ended, the two players who performed worst in season 2 in their respective region will be demoted and no longer play in Hearthstone Grandmasters.
      As far as the compensation of the players is concerned, each of them will earn $1,000 per week as an appearance fee. For each match won, another $500 is given to the participating players. The prize pool of the global finals is said to be $500,000. It's highly likely there'll be more rewards per seasonal performance.
      Hearthstone Grandmasters is set to start soon after the Hearthstone World Championships have concluded. Blizzard is expected to share these details sometime next week.
