The SL i-League StarSeries tournament concluded this weekend and the winner was Lanshengzhe from China, who is also known as Robin. He beat Cipher 4-1 in the final to take home $20,000. All matches until the Final were best of five conquest with a ban. The final was best of seven conquest with a ban and a revive.


The group stages were played as an all play all format, with the winner going straight into the semi-final stages. The last placed player in each group was eliminated. The results of the groups were as follows:

Group A: Kolento (3-0), Cipher (1-2), Dog (1-2), Lvxiaobu (1-2)
Group B: Lanshengze (2-1), Surrender (2-1), StanCifka (1-2), JAB (1-2)

In the quarter-finals, Dog beat new NaVi signing, Surrender, 3-2. Cipher beat Stan Cifka 3-2.

 


Semi Final One: Cipher vs Kolento


In the first semi-final, both players banned Druid. Game one was Paladin vs Paladin. Cipher brought a standard looking Secret Paladin, while Kolento brought Murloc Paladin. Kolento took a 1-0 lead, as wave after wave of board clears made it impossible for Cipher to deliver anywhere near enough damage to threaten lethal. Cipher stuck with Secret Paladin for game two, and a turn one Secretkeeper survived for six turns to level the scores at 1-1. Game three saw Cipher's Freeze Mage take down the Zoo deck, and in game four his Combo Renolock again beat Zoo to give Cipher a 3-1 victory. All three of his wins were against Zoo.


Semi Final Two: Dog vs Lanshengzhe


Lanshengzhe took a very fast 1-0 lead with Face Shaman against Control Priest. He then doubled that lead nearly as quickly as his Zoo deck defeated Dog's Demon Handlock. Dog's Handlock deck then beat Secret Paladin to pull back a game, but he couldn't beat it with Control Priest in game four, and Lanshengzhe advanced to the final.


Final: Cipher vs Lanshengzhe


The final still used a ban, but players were allowed to revive one deck after it had won. Cipher banned Druid again, while Lanshengzhe banned Mage. Cipher looked like he was in control in the first game with Renolock against Zoo, but a technical issue meant the game was replayed. Langshengzhe won the rematch, and then went 2-0 ahead by beating Secret Paladin with his Shaman deck. He then revived his Shaman for a rematch, which he won again, to go 3-0 ahead. In game four, Lanshengzhe made a big mistake when he need to tap into a Power Overwhelming to put on his Doomguard for the win, but he drew the card before playing the Doomguard, meaning he had to discard it, which gave Cipher a win with his Renolock. Cipher revived his deck, but Lanshengzhe held his nerve in spite of his previous error and took the match 4-1


Lanshengzhe plays for Yolo Miracle, under the name Robin, who recently finished second in Team Story China.

      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)
