Blizzard have announced major changes to how the Tavern Heroes program will work in the Spring Season. The idea is that many more people will be able to enter the events, which will make the World Championship more accessible.


Starting on March 12, any approved Fireside Gathering can host a tournament where the winner will qualify for that region's Tavern Hero tournament. The top 32 players from the Tavern Hero tournament for each region will then be declared Tavern Heroes, and will be entered into the Spring preliminary alongside the 128 players who qualify from the point standings. The Tavern Hero tournament will be held the day before the Spring Preliminary for that region.

If you wish to host a qualifying event, you need to fulfil the following requirements:

Blizzard Icon Requirements

Must take place from March 12 to April 17
Must be open to the public, and held in a public venue
Must have a minimum of 16 players
Must use the Conquest format
Must provide a completed event report and tournament bracket within 1 week of the end of the qualifier via email to FiresideGatherings@blizzard.com
Organizers are not eligible to participate in their own Tavern Hero Qualifier

The locations for approved Fireside Gatherings can be found here. It is not clear if these are all going to host Tavern Hero qualifying tournaments, so check with the organisers before turning up.

      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!

      Pesty's Whizbang the Wonderful guide is here to help you climb the ladder with the wonderful wizard.
       
      Whizbang the Wonderful is one of the wackiest cards in the history of Hearthstone, but its also one of the most beginner-friendly. A one card deck, Whizbang grants players access to all 18 of the Blizzard-made deck recipes. If you're a newer player who crafted Whizbang with high hopes of climbing the competitive ladder, our very own Pesty has just the guide for you. You can read her guide on the 18 Whizbang deck recipes right here. Happy hunting!
