The Hearthstone subreddit, /r/Hearthstone, has finished voting on their annual awards. Most of the awards are specific to the subreddit, but there are several that apply to the wider Hearthstone world as well.


The Best Post award went to scfdivine's post about neural network Hearthstone cards. This was something that had previously been done with Magic: The Gathering cards, and scfdivine decided to do the same thing with Hearthstone cards. He set up a recurrent neural network to create random cards based simply on the text of other cards it had encountered, and the results were both fascinating and amusing.

Other awards include:
  • The MagicAmy thread for Best Hearthstone Drama
  • in the Archon Team League for Best Tournament RNG
  • for Most Creative Lethal
  • Brian Kibler as Favourite Community Member

As well as the above awards, and several Reddit related awards, there was also an award for Memest Meme, which was won by "Leeroy Jenkins created a strategy that revolved around trying to defeat your opponent in one turn without requiring any cards on the board...".

 

Blizzard Community Manager Zeriayh had this to say about that award.

You know, I'm honored to have created the dankest, memest meme of 2015. When we're creating a strategy for these types of posts, we really try to get down to the soul of the meme, and we try to improve on them each year. A quality meme must truly be both fun and interactive for everyone to enjoy. For those of you that are looking for the next best thing to copypasterino, just hang tight: We're working on it.

 

Happy New Year, Hearthstone community. smile.png
