There's also a video of Brode welcoming both on board. According to Hearthpwn, there are now 5 ex-Hearthstone developers working at Second Dinner.

All I can say is that I'm glad to see Brode's face and hear his voice, broad smile and his laugh shining through. He's an absolute unit, a total badass from badassitude.

But what irritates me is that it seems like alot of good(?) people are leaving Blizzard. I don't know what to think about that.

Maybe because Blizzard is becoming like EA and Goobysoft with their bug testing and micro transactions and people dont want to be part of it.

Well, I'm not saying you are wrong, but they aren't that bad. At least progress is not hidden behind some paywall. Until now its always just skins or timesaving/utility

Right? I'm pretty excited to see what Second Dinner produces! All though it's very unlikely, it would be funny if they produced a card game.

Boy, I DO hope this is meant as a joke.
If not you have some serious problems. Blizzard is a company where you work and leave as you like, not a church or cult for  heavens sake...

Unless it's EA. I'm convinced they are a cult.

Thinking how braindead EA playerbase could be, you're right.

I don't wanna offend anyone really, but if you insist on buying the same thing year after year and complain about the same thing year after year, there is a problem.

      Dave Kosak is here in the latest Hearthside Chat video to talk about the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. He also revealed two Priest cards: the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and his Spirit!
      If you haven't played Battle for Azeroth, the latest WoW expansion, then this video is going to be helpful in understanding the backstory of Rastakhan's Rumble:
      The two Priest cards revealed in the video synergise very well with each other:

      As Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden mentioned in their r/Hearthstone interview, Spirits are meant to be build-around cards and this is pretty apparent with Spirit of the Dead. Apart from the obvious synergy with Bwonsamdi, the Priest Spirit can work wonders in a Clone Priest deck along with Zerek's Cloning Gallery. Spirit of the Dead can also find a spot in other archetypes like Resurrect, Big and Deathrattle Priest. The card itself is quite slow and requires some setting-up, but it looks very versatile.

      Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, can be used simiply to draw Spirit of the Dead, then you can kill him while the Spirit is up and shuffle him back to your deck. It's easy to see the Spirit work without Bwonsamdi, but the opposite - Bwonsamdi working without his Spirit - looks like a slim possibility. Given that all Class cards in this expansion are designed to work as a "team", we might see a card (apart from the Spirit) that can make Bwonsamdi more viable. Otherwise, the Hunter Quest never really caught on, so why would it work in a traditionally anti-aggro class like Priest?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      The reveal season will span between November 19 - 28.
      As usual, the card reveals will begin with a live stream on November 19 at 10:00 a.m. PST hosted by Peter Whalen and Regiskillbin.
      Then, we'll have two weeks of community card reveals:
      Week of November 19 11/19 12PM 11/19 11PM 11/20 2AM 11/20 4AM 11/20 5AM 11/20 7AM 11/20 8AM 11/20 9AM 11/20 11AM 11/20 8PM 11/21 2AM 11/21 4AM 11/21 7AM 11/21 11AM 11/21 1PM 11/21 6PM 11/21 11PM 11/22 1AM 11/22 4AM 11/22 7AM 11/22 10AM 11/22 11PM 11/23 4AM 11/23 6AM 11/23 7AM 11/23 11AM 11/23 2PM 11/23 10PM 11/23 11PM 11/24 1AM 11/24 7AM 11/24 11AM 11/24 1PM 11/24 11PM 11/25 4AM 11/25 7AM 11/25 11AM 11/25 7PM 11/25 11PM   Week of November 26 11/26 2AM 11/26 4AM 11/26 7AM 11/26 8AM 11/26 11AM 11/26 9PM 11/26 11PM 11/27 1AM 11/27 4AM 11/27 7AM 11/27 11AM 11/27 6PM 11/27 11PM Lastly, there will be a final live stream on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel on November 28 at 10:00 a.m. PST. The hosts this time will be Dean Ayala and Brian Kibler.
      Rastakhan's Rumble will release a few days afterwards, on December 4.

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.

      Two new cards from Rastakhan's Rumble were revealed in an official blog post detailing the story of the upcoming expansion.
      The first card revealed is a neutral Pirate:

      It's important to clarify that the Overkill effect triggers only on your turn (ie. when you attack and not when you are attacked) and this minion will draw you cards even if it dies as long as you Overkill something. Other than that, it feels slow for an aggro Pirate deck and its low Health means it can be killed easily. Perhaps it could make for a decent Arena card.
      The awesomely named second card of the day is Heavy Metal!

      Here is a spell with the Geosculptor Yip effect, at a reduced cost and minus the body. Interestingly enough, this card would have been better if it costed 5 or 7 mana since it would fit in Odd Warrior, a deck that heavily utilises armoring up. Even Warrior might become a thing in the future, but still with Yip never really having caught on, it's really hard to see this card fit into any Warrior deck.
      The blog post itself is interesting, since it gives an introduction to the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. We see Rikkar - the aspiring Troll champion, who is also the protagonist of the Rumble Run - entering the Gurubashi Arena and trying to pick which team he is going to side with. The Tigers - the Paladin team - are described as the returning champions of Rastakhan's Rumble. We are eager to see what's next for this expansion!
