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

      This thread is for comments about our Spell Damage Mage deck.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
