Asia-Pacific Summer Championship Preview

Recommended Posts

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) Summer Championship takes place this weekend.

The players in the APAC Championship qualify a little differently compared to the other regions. Each sub-region has its own Preliminary event, some have two qualifying slots, and some have one. South Korea and Taiwan get two, while Australia/New Zealand, Japan, and South-East Asia get one each. The top points earner in the whole of the APAC region qualifies as of right.

Handsomeguy, from South Korea,  is the man to beat in this event. He has qualified for each of Winter, Spring, and Summer as the top points earner. He lost in the final of the Winter Championship and then secured his BlizzCon spot by winning the Spring Championship. His decks this time around are Tempo Mage, Control Warrior with Yogg-Saron, Hope's EndQuesting Adventurer Miracle Rogue, Malygos Druid, and Mid Shaman.

GundamFlame is my pick from the rest. He impressed in the Japan Championships. He showed creative play as well as good feel for when to switch from passive to aggressive play. He has brought Malygos Druid, Dragon Warrior, Tempo Mage, Aggro Shaman, and Mid Hunter.

The other players and deck archetypes are as follows:

  Yulsic: Malygos Druid, Freeze Mage, Aggro Shaman, Dragon Warrior, Zoo Warlock

  Malygos (I understand this is the name he's going by): Malygos Druid, Malygos Rogue, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Control Warrior

  Alpe: Malygos Druid, Questing Rogue, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Control Warrior

  Flurry: Malygos Druid, Mid Hunter, Miracle Rogue, Mid Shaman, Control Warrior

  Jowen: Malygos Druid, Tempo Mage, Questing Rogue, Aggro Shaman, N'Zoth Warrior

  Ledah: Token Druid, Questing Rogue, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Mid Hunter

The event will be streamed live on the official Twitch channel from 6am CEST on October 1st.

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.
