The third Truesilver Championship took place over the weekend of 26-28 August. Eight players were invited and eight came through an open Swiss to battle it out for a share of $30,000. The tournament was played as best of five Last Hero Standing.

The invited players were decided by a close qualifier earlier in the year. Gaara was replaced by Rdu to give a lineup of Ostkaka, Firebat, Naiman, Rdu, Ness, Eloise, Chakki and Xixo. 102 players entered the open Swiss, which added eight more strong players to the lineup. Faeli (7-0), SuperJJ, Fire, BoarControl, Ekop, derf2000 (all 6-1), Xzirez, and Vinz (5-2) all qualified for the second stage.

The second stage was double elimination groups. The final standings in those were as follows:

Group A: Vinz (2-0), Ness (2-1), Faeli (1-2), Eloise (0-2)

Group B: SuperJJ (2-0), Ostkaka (2-1),  Xzriez (1-2),   Firebat (0-2)

Group C: Chakki (2-0), Fire (2-1), Rdu (1-2), derf2000 (0-2)

Group D: Xixo (2-0), Ekop (2-1), Naiman (1-2), BoarControl (0-2)

The tournament then became single elimination, and the final was an all German affair between Xixo and Ek0p. Many of the top players made mistakes in this event, but these two played solid Hearthstone throughout, and it was good to see them rewarded by getting to the final.

Xixo brought Malygos Druid, Murloc Paladin, Miracle Rogue, and Aggro Shaman.

Ekop brought  Yogg Druid, Aggro Shaman, Zoo Warlock, and C'Thun Warrior.

Ekop banned Rogue, while Xixo banned Shaman. The opening game was a long one with Ekop grinding out a win against Druid with his Warrior deck. Xixo countered this with his strong Paladin matchup to level the scores at 1-1. Ekop's Zoo prayed on the weakness of the slow early start that Paladin can sometimes get, and he again led at 2-1 but Xixo overcame the odds with Shaman to take the match to a deciding game. In that game Ekop decided to hold on to a Wrath for two turns instead of killing either a Sir Finley Mrrgglton, or a Tuskarr Totemic, and this paid dividends when he was able to take out a Flametongue Totem on the following turn. This play helped him to snowball to a win to take down his first major trophy. On the last turn of the match where Ekop had guaranteed lethal, he hovered over Yogg-Saron, Hope's End for a few seconds to work the crowd, which led to many cries of "NO!" from the assembled audience and casters alike.

The VOD for the event is available here.

Really happy for Ek0p, he was getting a lot of unnecessary hate.

Even though i think Xixo played better in the entire tournament, but still :)

@CodeRazorI suppose you weren't around when he started a drama with Trump, and all that other trashtalking. He doesn't act as bad as he used to, but there is still some hate left over.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a great way to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood.
       
      Looking for a chance to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood? This week's Brawl, titled "A Witchy Recipe", features preconstructed decks for each class which are built around some of the less-played cards from the new expansion, including many of the new Legendary minions from the set.
      Here are the names of some of the new cards you can try for yourself in A Witchy Recipe:
      Druid: Hand-size with Witchwood Apple, Ferocious Howl, and Wispering Woods. Hunter: Midrange Dragon/Poison with Carrion Drake, Vilebrood Skitterer, and Emeriss. Mage: Elemental Minions with Book of Specters, Archmage Arugal, and Bonfire Elemental. Paladin: Even Paladin with The Glass Knight and Genn Greymane. Note: If you're looking for a quick win, this deck feels like the most powerful of the bunch. Priest: Odd Priest with Chameleos, Glitter Moth, and Nightscale Matriarch. Rogue: Echo/Burgle with Pick Pocket, Tess Greymane, and Face Collector. Shaman: Battlecry Shaman with Blazing Invocation, Zap!, and Hagatha the Witch. Warrior: Rush with Darius Crowley, Town Crier, and Woodcutter's Axe. Warlock: Self-damage with Blood Witch, Deathweb Spider. and Glinda Crowskin. As usual, the reward for A Witchy Recipe is one pack of Classic.

      The team has finally responded to the community's concerns on the new Shaman legendary minion.
      Two weeks after The Witchwood's release, Team 5 has addressed the issues surrounding Shudderwock. Its animation will go faster and it will cap at 20 Battlecries. Hopefully, it will be less of a nuisance now. Lifedrinker will also receive a bump on its animation speed.
      I assume the fix will go live on April 26 along with the Monster Hunt.

      Recently, our players have had feedback regarding the Shaman card, Shudderwock. We understand that the length of its Battlecry animation and other animations spawned from its Battlecry can be frustrating. In a future update, we will be doubling the animation speed of Shudderwock’s Battlecry so it will lessen the impact on the overall pacing of your current Hearthstone match. In addition, the amount of Battlecries Shudderwock can reproduce will be capped at 20.
      We will also be speeding up the animation of Lifedrinker for similar reasons.
      Thank you for your feedback, and we’ll see you in the Tavern.
      Cheers!

      The rewards are different for each rank. You receive the chest for the best rank you achieve, so do not be afraid of dropping a rank. Additionally, after reaching a milestone rank (ranks in bold), you will not fall below them that season again. This means that if you lose a game at rank 15 with 0 stars, you will not drop to rank 16, but rather stay at rank 15 with no stars.
