The 2015 Gold Series Finals have been completed after over two weeks of competition. Gold Series Xi'an winner, ZhangBo, has won the first prize of over $23,000 defeating Zoro in the final 3-2. The format was best of 5 conquest with a ban.


Players were able to change their lineup before the quarter final stages, and ZhangBo switched to Midrange Druid, Patron Warrior, Face Shaman, and Zoo. He beat a very strong up-and-coming player, Ray Allen, 3-2 in the quarterfinals. He then defeated last year's winner, LovelyChook, 3-1 in the semi-finals. In the final against Zoro the players alternated wins, with ZhangBo winning with Druid against Control Warrior to go 1-0 ahead and Patron against Druid to lead 2-1. In a well calculated final game, he beat Secret Paladin with his Shaman deck after having to make crucial choices on turns 3 and 4.

ZhangBo was in the event courtesy of winning one of the smaller Gold Series events during the last twelve months, a pool of players expected to do badly. All of the other players who qualified in this manner went out of the event in the early stages, but ZhangBo showed that his previous win was no fluke. He used the opportunities to change decks at various stages to his advantage, and showed he could play a wide range of styles. He is not on any team, and chose to use the prefix "Good Student" for the event. Presumably he will now be a hot property and will be signed sooner rather than later.

Runner-up, Zoro, has done consistently well in the last year, including a visit to the World Championship. However, he is yet to take down a major event and it will be interesting to see how long it is before he finally gets a big title to his name.

Players did have the choice to take a 500g solid gold statue instead of the prize money, but it is believed that ZhangBo took the money.

The English version VoDs are available on DTwo's YouTube channel.

      Year of the Mammoth Arena Guide now available!
      Our Arena Guide has been updated by Pesty, to fully reflect the format for The Year of the Mammoth.
      As well as the new tier list for classes, the guide addresses each class in detail, so that you can get the most out of your Arena draft. It also discusses which Mana curves work well with which class, and how to pick on your opponents' likely weaknesses.
      The new Tier List is shown below:
      Tier 1 (Excellent): Mage, Rogue Tier 2 (Great): Paladin, Hunter Tier 3 (Good): Druid, Priest, Shaman, Warlock, Tier 4 (Average): Warrior For any feedback or questions about this guide, check out our Hearthstone General Discussion Forum, or comment in this thread.

      The 97th Tavern Brawl is called 'An Ancient Recipe' and it offers players the chance to try out Journey to Un'Goro decks.
      The rules of this Brawl are simple: you choose a hero and you get a premade deck with the Un'Goro deck recipe for that class. The deck archetypes are the following and we even have guides for most of them:
      Quest Druid Dinomancer Hunter Elemental Mage (guide for almost identical deck here) Quest Paladin Quest Priest Quest Rogue Elemental Shaman Quest Warlock Quest Warrior All deck recipes have pretty good winning chances. This is a nice chance to play with cards you don't own and get to know the new Hearthstone expansion better.
