Kobolds & Catacombs Presumed to Be Released On December 7

Recommended Posts

There are some strong indications that the next expansion will be released on the first week of December.

December 7 for the Americas and 8 for Europe seems to be the date when Kobolds & Catacombs will go live. While this hasn't been officially confirmed yet, there are two pieces of evidence that strongly suggest the aforementioned date.

Reddit user and data enthusiast u/charlesbuchinski determined that so far in Hearthstone's history the average amount of days between an expansion's announcement and its release is 34.2 days. With this expansion being announced on November 3, adding 34 days takes us to December 7 - which is also a Thursday, the typical day for expansion releases in the US.

Hearthpwn also did their homework on this very serious topic. The phrase "All new expansions will be allowed" in the Australia Inn-Vitational announcement, which will take place between December 10-11, could be an indication of K&C being released before that tournament. The previous December expansions, Goblins vs Gnomes and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, were both released within the first week of the twelfth month of the year. Lastly, card reveals for the previous two expansions began two weeks before their release - and guess what? November 20, which is when the Kobolds & Catacombs card reveals will restart, is exactly two weeks before December 7.

Hopefully, these speculations are correct. Personally, I was expecting the release to happen on the 14th, but an earlier date is always welcome!

When K&C hits - which set/adventure will rotate out?

And for your information, with the next rotation, which should be somewhere in April 2018, the sets Whispers of the Old Gods and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan as well as the adventure One Night in Karazhan will rotate out. ... if I am correct :D

It feels like the cards from those expansions are already not played in standard.

You mean except for these ? :D (I didn't want to mention all, so just a "few" examples here ;) )

A lot of common and rare cards could be added to this list, but I'm too lazy ;)

Old Gods:

  1. Fandral Staghelm
  2. N'Zoth, the Corruptor
  3. Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound
  4. Vilefin Inquisitor
  5. Forbidden Shaping
  6. Shadowcaster
  7. Faceless Shambler

Maybe not on the higher ladder ranks but there are still C'Thun decks around which include a lot of cards from Old Gods.

Karazhan:

  1. Barnes
  2. Medivh, the Guardian
  3. Cat Trick
  4. Maelstrom Portal
  5. Netherspite Historian

Mean Streets:

  1. Kun the Forgotten King
  2. Wickerflame Burnbristle
  3. Raza the Chained
  4. Patches the Pirate
  5. Kazakus
  6. Finja, the Flying Star
  7. Aya Blackpaw
  8. Dragonfire PotionSleep with the Fishes
  9. Dirty Rat
  10. A dozen Jade Golem Cards.
