Red Bull has announced a tournament to take place on February 6th between four of the top teams in Hearthstone. It will be a team format using limited packs and limited deck building time. Players will all be wearing microphones, which will allow them to discuss plays with their teammates, or even play mind games with their opponents, which seems to be encouraged.


Every team will consist of three players. They will each be assigned 240 cards generated with a Sealed Deck Generator available on Tempo Storm's website. They will have 30 minutes to build three decks form their card pool, and each card can only be used once. At the end of that time, they will assign one deck to each player. Each team will play each other team, and within that match, each member will play each other member in a best of one. Players will all be wearing microphones, which will allow them to discuss plays with their teammates, or even play mind games with their opponents, which seems to be encouraged.

After all of the teams have played each other once, the two teams with the most individual points will advance to a best of nine final; again with each player playing each player from the opposing team once each. The winning team will get $3,000 and DX Racer Chairs.

The four teams involved are:

Archon: Zalae, Firebat, Amaz
Liquid: Savjz, Dog, Trump
Tempo Storm: Eloise, Reynad, Ratsmah
Cloud 9: StrifeCro, Hafu, TidesofTime

These lineups should lead to a fascinating tournament. Cloud 9 will likely be the favourites. Hafu is regarded by her peers as probably the best Arena player in the world. Tides, while known for his constructed play, is also a powerful Arena player. StrifeCro will bring a lot to the group as well, being not only a great player, but also one who likes to experiment with decks.

Archon could be the surprise package. Zalae will be very used to this kind of format from his Magic: The Gathering days, and also conducts a regular "Deck Doctor" slot on his stream, where he takes viewer decks and makes small changes. Amaz also plays a lot of Arena, and Firebat's playing and analysis skills are well known to be in contention for being the best in the world.

In the other teams, which are loaded with powerful constructed Hearthstone players, Ratsmah and Trump are both strong at Arena play, and clearly the event can be won by any of the four teams.

      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)
