The Europe Spring Preliminary is over, and the eight players that will advance to the Europe Spring Championship have been decided. The qualifiers from the upper bracket were Crane333, Loyan, Thijs, and AKA Wonder. Turna, Georgec, Casie, and Iner also advanced.


As the event was held on Battlefy, there are also plenty of stats available on the meta. There were 152 participating players in the event. 123 (81%) brought Warrior, while 122 (80%) brought Shaman. This ties in with our meta discussion from the ladder a week ago. Shaman and Warrior also had two of the highest three win rates. Druid topped the list with 54%, but the sample size was very small. Druid, Priest, and especially Hunter, were very lightly represented in the event.

Of the top eight, every player brought Warlock. With five RenoLock and three Zoo being used. This is of note, as Zoo outnumbered Reno in a 2 to 1 ratio at the start.

Much of the red tape surrounding the Winter event has been sorted out, and other than the issue with the multiple account ruling, it seems that there were very few problems this time around.  Some of the locations had poor internet, or were too noisy, and that will obviously have to be worked on. It does seem that the event is getting better overall though, and Blizzard are finding their way quickly.

 


The players were generally happy with the state of the game. The consensus seems to be that the game is more skillful with cards like Imp-losion, Dr. Boom, and Piloted Shredder leaving the game. The results seem to back this up, with the notable players putting up a far better performance this time around than in Winter.

Many of the decks were unsurprising. Of note, Georgec played a Tournament Medic in his Freeze Mage. The main surprise was AKAWonder's lineup. He brought C'Thun in Warrior, RenoLock, and Druid. He rounded out his lineup with NZoth Paladin. He posted his decklists on Twitter.
 


The decks played in the top eight broke down as follows:

Druid: (1) C'Thun
Hunter: (0)
Mage: (3) Freeze
Paladin: (4) N'Zoth
Priest: (0)
Rogue: (3) Miracle
Shaman: (7) 4 Aggro, 3 Midrange 
Warlock: (8) 5 Reno, 3 Zoo
Warrior: (6) 4 Tempo, 1 Control, 1 C'Thun

      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.

      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)

      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)
