The Boomsday Project Is Now Live

4 posts in this topic


Is Hearthstone's latest expansion going to make an impact or is it going to bomb?

The Boomsday Project has launched in all regions. The expansion, which was patched in last week, features 135 new cards, the Magnetic keyword, Legendary spells and Omega & Project cards. Most importantly, though, it features a lot of Mechs! The new PvE adventure, the Puzzle Lab, will be available on the 21st of August.

During the launch period, upon login you will receive a free Legendary Class minion and 3 The Boomsday Project cards. Then, you can go ahead and craft the cards you like and obviously open your packs. We are eagerly waiting for screenshots of your pack openings, so we can decide who had the luckiest and/or most ridiculous pack!

Before you do any crafting, you should consider checking out our Hearthstone deck section. We have updated quite a few of our guides in expectation of the new expansion and we will have more as the meta starts shaping up and new decks rise to fame. You should keep an eye on the Changelog for any updates. Meanwhile, Aleco has prepared a list of 18 decks - some freshly-brewed, others known and reliable - that can guide you through the absolute madness that Day 1 of the new expansion is going to be!

Maybe its just the decks I play, but so far I dont think ill use any of the new cards and thats pretty disappointing. However, 2 of my decks full counter some of these decks already popping up which is nice.

Since I don't spend money on free to play games, I couldn't care less about any of the new cards. I didn't even bother looking at any of the cards from this expansion at all since I won't be using them for a very long time. I am interested in the Puzzle Lab thing though. ☺️

Long time listener, first time caller.  So, in Boomsday Velen (Control) Priest, do I want Psychic Scream in my mulligan?

      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!
