Team Story is a Chinese team league which I am part of the English casting crew for on Twitch. The format of each match involves three players using two decks each from six different classes in a best of 11 conquest. The winnner of that match gets two points in the league. In a twist to more conventional formats, the remaining three classes have to be played by a fourth member of the team in a best of 5 match for 1 point. Teams will play each other twice each with the top four advancing to a stepladder style playoff.


 
Week 11 saw teams starting to change their strategies in response to their current standing. Teams near the bottom of the league were taking bigger chances with their lineups in an attempt to get the full three points, while teams higher up were playing it safe. 
 
Team Celestial won 3-0 against Vici Gaming which puts them within one point of securing the top spot already. Their team will be stronger going forward too, with Zoro and Zihao back from their efforts at the World Championships.
 
Back in week 7, TongFu had a chance to tie Celestial at the top of the table. This week they lost 3-0 to World Elite and they are now 12 points away from the lead. This week they fielded Valeera who had not been seen for many weeks and he had a bad day going 1-4 in his matches. World Elite have become a very consistent unit, fielding a combination of the same five players week after week, looking comfortable in each other's presence and playing better quality Hearthstone. Moyan in particular has notably improved as the league has progressed.
 
The other two matches also produced no surprises with EDward Gaming beating Invictus Gaming 3-0 and Yolo Miracle taking a 2-1 win over bottom of the table Newbee. This means that there is finally some separation between the top four and the other teams with only three weeks left to go.

      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)

      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)
