WePlay Hearthstone League Finals Day

Recommended Posts

The WePlay Hearthstone League concluded yesterday with the playoff stages. The players involved were Super_JJ, Xixo, Mr.Yagut and Ryzen. The format was best of five Last Hero Standing, and $5,000 in prize money was up for grabs.


 
The dynamic of the last four was interesting with two seasoned professionals with mutliple titles to their name in Super_JJ and Xixo, alongside two players better known for streaming Rogue and looking to make a splash in the constructed scene; Mr.Yagut and Ryzen.
 
The first match was Super_JJ, the winner of the league stage, against Mr.Yagut. Super_JJ had brought Paladin containing Harrison Jones and also Malylock with Acidic Swamp Ooze and took a 1-0 lead with his Malylock against Paladin. However, despite Super_JJ's anti-Rogue tech choices, Mr.Yagut took the next three games with Rogue against Malylock, Freeze Mage and Paladin to go through to the final.
 
The other semi-final between Xixo and Ryzen looked set for a surprise result when Ryzen took a 1-0 lead with Shaman against Patron. He seemed a little unsure of his matchups against Reno Warlock though and Xixo swept through the Shaman and the other two decks of Rogue and Druid to take it down 3-1.
 
The final looked like it was going to be a ten minute match after Xixo blasted to a 2-0 lead with his Shaman deck against Druid and Paladin. Xixo has a track record of winning tournaments with aggro decks and this looked like it was going to be another. However Mr.Yagut stopped the Shaman with his Rogue and set up the possibility of his first big tournament win with Xixo playing Paladin next. It was not to be though and Xixo took down the $2,500 first Prize.
 
In the third place playoff match, Super_JJ defeated Ryzen 3-1.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.

      Mike Donais appeared yesterday on his daughter's stream, where he played some games and talked about various topics. He may also have inadvertently made a major reveal about two upcoming nerfs.
      A private message from Jared Noel, a former member of Hearthstone Analytics at Blizzard, appeared on stream. It was mentioned in it that changes would be made Conjurer's Calling and Extra Arms. The former will be increased to 4 mana, while the latter - even though it was one of buffed cards from The Boomsday Project - will be reverted to 3 mana.

      Now, Mike may have been replying "yes" to anything said above, but judging from his reaction this chat log wasn't meant to be shown on stream.
       
      The previous day from the stream, the Hearthstone developer had revealed that there will be an announcement on balance changes this week.

      Hopefully they are prioritizing a nerf patch before the Single Player Content patch
      Yep, we will give more info on balance changes this week hopefully. (source)
      During the stream, Donais also talked about a lot of other issues like card balance and Wild balance in particular, Arena changes, card design and more. Some interesting tidbits are that for Arena, they will revisit the old system, where you could see powerful cards and weak cards in the same pick - without this necessarily being a permanent change. There's also talk about upgrading Priest's board clears - one of the class's main weaknesses - since the team doesn't want to reprint the same cards.
