The second of the two Last Chance qualifiers for the $50,000 SL i-League StarSeries took place on Wednesday, with JAB claiming the final place in the main event. The LAN finals will be held from January 22-24 in Belarus. The format for the qualifier was single elimination best of five conquest.


The first round consisted of Hoej against Orange, and Neirea against StanCifka. Lifecoach and JAB received byes to the second round, by virtue of them reaching the second group stage earlier in the event.

In the first match, Orange used Oil Rogue, Tempo Mage and Patron Warrior to overcome Hoej 3-1. In the other first round match, StanCifka brought Aggro Druid, Hybrid Hunter and Secret Paladin to take a 3-2 win over Neirea.

In round two, JAB used Patron Warrior, Mid Druid and Secret Paladin to get past Orange 3-1. StanCifka beat Lifecoach 3-1. Of note in this match was Lifecoach's use of Eye for an Eye in his Secret Paladin deck. JAB and Lifecoach both played Ragnaros the Firelord in their Secret Paladin, a card that is becoming increasingly popular in that deck in recent days.

This set up a final between JAB and StanCifka. JAB won the opening Paladin mirror match and took a 2-0 lead with Patron Warrior against Druid. He then closed out with Druid against Paladin in a very one-sided affair with turn one coin into Darnassus Aspirant, turn two Innervate into Druid of the Claw, and turn four Piloted Shredder. This was too much for StanCifka to overturn and JAB ran out a comfortable 3-0 winner.

      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)
