For the first time in Hearthstone's history, we are getting a release schedule for an expansion.

No more guesstimating and renewing the client! Blizzard has posted an official release schedule for Knights of the Frozen Throne with exact dates and times. The schedule doesn't just contain the details for the launch of the game (on Thursday for the Americas, on Friday for the rest of the world), but it also shows when exactly each wing of the single players Missions will be released.

Without further ado, here's everything you need to know:

Hyyyype. Here's to hoping Warlocks can survive long enough to stabilize with the deathknight variety.

 

Spoiler: It's not. Rip Warlock. (Yes I'm a partypooper)

So much for me staying up all night. I was hoping it would be released just after midnight, like the daily quests. LOL

Does this extra minute mean we Europeans get a special treatment ? :D

Maybe it's to early to say but Warlock still looks bad. Sad sad.

      A new Hearthside Chat video gave us a sneak peek of Puzzle Labs in action.
       
      Today's Hearthside Chat shed some light on Puzzle Labs, the new single player content for The Boomsday Project releasing on August 21st. We already knew that Lethal, Mirror, Board Clear, and Survival were going to be the 4 puzzle types, but developers Giovanni Scarpati and Max Ma helped reveal the Puzzle Lab menus and UI, as well as some of the backstory on how Puzlle Labs came to be. Watch the video below to get a sneak peek of Puzzle Labs in action:

      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!
