The Hearthstone Champions League Season 2 was completed this week, and Pavel was the winner of the $5,000 first prize. The format was best of five Conquest.


The league began with sixteen players placed in groups of four, with two from each group qualifying for the single eliminaton knockout stage. The results of each group were as follows:

Group A: StanCifka (2-0), Xixo (2-1), Kolento (1-2). Dog (0-2)
Group B: Pavel (2-0), Ek0p (2-1), Hoej (1-2), RDU (0-2)
Group C: Sjow (2-0), Orange (2-1), Strifecro (1-2), Lifecoach (0-2)
Group D: Thijs (2-0), Ostkaka (2-1), Hanniballz2 (1-2), Tidesoftime (0-2)

In the quarter-finals, Ostkaka beat StanCifka 3-2, Ek0p beat SjoW 3-1, Pavel beat Orange 3-1, and Thijs beat Xixo 3-2.

The semi-finals were both one-sided affairs. Ostkaka beat Ek0p 3-0, despite not getting the best of the matchups. His Zoo deck beat Patron, he then won with Secret Paladin against Zoo and Druid against Patron. In the other match, Pavel swept Thijs' Rogue deck with Zoo, Druid and Freeze Mage to win 3-1. His only loss was with Freeze Mage against Druid.

The final was a close match. In game one Ostaka showed the skills that made him World Champion, by not panicking with his Secret Paladin against Freeze Mage. His timing for removing Pavel's Ice Block, and patience with his Loatheb, gave him a 1-0 lead. He doubled that lead with a win in the Druid mirror, which left him only needing a win with Zoo to secure the title. Pavel was able to keep his focus and levelled the score at 2-2 with wins using Freeze Mage and then his own Zoo. In the final game he pulled off a surprise with Druid against Zoo, which completed the reverse sweep, and gave Pavel his first big tournament title.

Thijs beat Ek0p 3-2 to win the third place playoff match.

Pavel tweeted his winning decklists. I have reproduced those below.

      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)
