hearthstone Next Hearthstone Set Name Potential Leak

A thread on Reddit has possibly leaked the name of the next Hearthstone set.

Redditor Reidor has posted compelling evidence that the next set could be called Lost Secrets of Un'Goro.

The evidence stems from the resume of voice actress Lani Minella. According to her Wikipedia page, she has voiced in over 500 computer and video games. Her resume has her roles in Starcraft, Diablo, and Hearthstone. Her previous Hearthstone cards include: Arathi WeaponsmithCult Master, and Imp Master from Classic, as well as cards from Whispers of the Old Gods.

The revealed card names tell us very little, other than they fit in with the theme of the Un'goro Crater from World of Warcraft. Brontosaurus, Pterodactyl, Hydra, Anklesaur, and Golakka Crawler are mainly generic names, and as such will be working names. With so many large beasts though, maybe Hunter players have something to look forward to!

While researching this piece, my colleague, Zadina, pointed out that Blizzard considered red Mana crystals in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. Zadina points out that there are yellow, green, and red crystals that can be picked up in Un'Goro.

Of course, leaks like this are not always accidental. Blizzard are very good at leaving Easter eggs for the community to find, and this will only fuel our excitement for the next set.

All I can say is that I hope the next expansion fixes the current meta.

Sure. Instead of aggro pirate shamans\warriors killing you on turn 4, we will have aggro beast hunters\druids killing you on turn 3

Are there any ragers in the Un'goro Crater? I NEED MORE RAGERS. A Dino Rager (or something like that) would be nice. Also memes, I like those. Memes and ragers, the perfect adventure. Any idea what style the adventure could have? 

Also, Blizz, please, no more aggro 1-drops.

That is exactly my point.  It used to be that there were many more viable decks before whispers.  Whispers cut it down to 4 or 5 and Means streets has cut it down even further.  And lets not even talk about arena.

How exciting! Makes me think they really are going to do more smaller releases this year. Bring on a bunch of dinosaurs and a seismic meta shift. Good Riddance, Reno!

Reddit is full of Raging memers if that helps.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!
