The Ranked Play results for July 2016 have been published by Blizzard. It was the final month of the Summer Season, and the Hearthstone Championship Points have also been updated to show which players qualifier for the Summer Preliminary.

The top spot went to TicTac. TicTac had previously made a bit of a splash by reaching #1 Legend early in the post-Whispers meta with Priest of all things. He is a consistent performer, who can regularly be found chatting in analysis heavy Twitch streams. This time around he took the top slot using Aggro Shaman from Legend Rank 400 all the way up to 1. He was more than one game ahead of the second ranked player, and was in no danger of being caught in the final minutes.

Other notable players in the top 25 included Senfglas, Xixo, GeorgeC, Rdu, and StanUdachi. With the European Preliminary taking place this weekend, those players will fancy their chances.

The HCT list contains nearly every notable player in Europe, and as such is not worth listing all of the notables. To check if your favourite is playing, simply click the link and see if they are in the top 128.

Topping the list is Greensheep of Team Dignitas. Greensheep previously made the top 16 of the World Championship in 2014 and is in pole position to have a shot at the Championship event.

The Europe Summer Preliminary will be streamed live on Twitch on twitch.tv/playhearthstone's channel on August 13-14. Both days run from 14:00 to 22:00 CEST. Sottle and myself from Icy Veins will both be on the casting desk for the event.

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
