The hotfix was passed last night.

There was an issue with the "Play A Friend!" quest awarding 160 gold (double the normal amount) only the the holder of the quest, whereas the opponent friend only got the usual 80 gold. The issue was hotfixed last night, although the quest reward will still be displayed as 80 in the UI.

The Midsummer Fire Festival is hot, hot, HOT! However, bugs are not, not, not. :(

Recently, we discovered an issue with the Midsummer Fire Festival’s double gold feature not properly granting the friend participating in the “Play a Friend!” Quest double gold. We have rolled out a hotfix for this issue and the Quest is now working properly in all regions. Both the player that has the “Play a Friend!” Quest and the friend they are playing against will receive the Midsummer Fire Festival double gold bonus.

Friends that only received 80 gold from the “Play a Friend!” Quest rather than the intended 160 gold for the Midsummer Fire Festival event will receive their missing 80 gold. A pop-up will appear in-game that will notify the affected players that 80 gold has been added from outside the game.

Please note that the UI will still display that 80 gold has been awarded to the challenged friend, but the awarded gold will correctly be 160 gold. We apologize that we are unable to adjust the UI at this time.

Thank you for your understanding, and enjoy the Midsummer Fire Festivities! (source)

The Midsummer Fire Festival started on July 5 and will last for two weeks. During it, you can earn double gold when completing quests.

Woah, it's 5 weeks? That's great. I think I'm going to save my gold for the expansion, because I'm excited for it and might even preorder.

Sorry my bad, it's two. I guess I wrote five because I had written July 5 before xD

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
