The Americas Spring Preliminary took place over the weekend to decide the eight players that would advance to the Americas Spring Championship. After two tough days of double elimination action, the players who survived were: Cydonia, Napoleon, Rosty, Pnc, Bradfordlee, Duane, Deerjason, and Joster. The format was best of five conquest, with a ban.

The European Preliminary had numerous big names progress, while in America it turned out to be the week of those trying to make a name for themselves. The biggest name to qualify was Deerjason, who reached the top eight of the 2014 Americas playoffs, missing out on BlizzCon that year due to a loss to eventual semi-finalist DTwo.  People will also be aware of Napoleon, who can often be found talking about high level Hearthstone in Twitch streams.

The qualifying lineups were as follows:

Bradfordlee: Aggro Shaman, Miracle Rogue, Reno Warlock, Tempo Warrior (with Leeroy Jenkins)

Cydonia: Miracle Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior

Deerjason: Tempo Warrior, Zoo Warlock, Aggro Shaman (pictured below), Freeze Mage

Duane: Ramp Druid, N'Zoth Paladin, Aggro Shaman (with Leeroy), Reno Warlock

Joster: Freeze Mage, Aggro Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Tempo Warrior

Pnc: Mid Hunter, Miracle Rogue, Mid Shaman, Tempo Warrior

Rosty: Freeze Mage, Aggro Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Dragon Warrior (pictured below)

Napoleon: Miracle Rogue, Tempo Warrior, Mid Hunter, Mid Shaman

Of the 153 players in the event, 133 (87%) brought Warlock, 126 (82%) brought Shaman, and 109 (71%) brought Warrior. This represents a fairly big rise in Warlock, at the expensive of Warrior, since the Europe Preliminary last week. Those who stuck with Warrior had a spectacular 59% win rate through the event. Priest was the least represented class at the event.

The Americas Spring Championship will take place on the weekend of June 25-26.

      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)
