hearthstone Hearthstone: Whispers of the Old Gods Officially Announced: Six Cards Revealed

Blizzard have officially announced the Whispers of the Old Gods set. Ben Brode and Yong Woo introduced a cinematic of the new set and showed us six new cards live on Twitch.


 


There will be 134 cards in the set, which will be released either late April or early May 2016. The set has a dark theme, which revolves around four Old Gods who are chained beneath the surface of Azeroth. The Gods are able to influence mortals with their whispers. This means that some old favourite cards have been revisited, but with different stats and abilities to show the effect that the Gods' whispers have had on them.

The main mechanic revealed so far revolves around the God C'Thun.

There are sixteen cards in the set that buff C'Thun, no matter whether he is: in your deck, in your hand, or on the board. These cards represent cultists who are hoping to empower him before he returns to wreak havoc on the world. To avoid the issue where players won't be able to use those cards well without owning C'Thun, everyone who opens a Whispers of the Old Gods pack will get C'Thun for free.

Players will be getting a preview of the new interface on Monday, 14th March. The interface will include an extra nine deck slots. Pre-purchase will be available for $49.99 for fifty packs, and all people who take advantage of that offer will get the card back pictured below. All players who log in during the promotional period will get 3 card packs, as well as C'Thun.

There is also an event on www.oldgods.com (unavailable at time of writing) on March 21st.

It's great to finally get spoiler season truly underway. We will of course be posting all of the cards as they get revealed.

Trying to imagine what an all-out C'thun deck will look like. Could be awesome or awful, not quite sure which it'll be. Partially depends on those other 14 unrevealed buff cards.

From my card game experience, they tend to bother to actually balance and test the weird looking stuff. (Exception: Jace the Mind Sculptor in MTG) It's usually something that doesn't look completely crazy that turns out to be.

Either way I am stoked for an old god themed deck, even if its terrible XD. When most expansions were released there were a few fun looking cards for me however, I was never tempted to do the pre order 50 packs deal. With whisper of the old gods my mentality has changed to

I regretted not prepurchasing when TGT preorders were released, so I didn't make that same mistake with Old Golds and prepurchased the second it went live.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
