Blizzard and Twitch will collaborate yet again with the Cheering program being available for the finals of the Hearthstone Global Games.

This is a way to actually support the final 16 HGG teams that will battle it out at BlizzCon 2018. From September 17 through November 14, link your Battle.net account to Twitch and Cheer for your favourite team(s) with Bits. The more your Cheer, the more rewards you will unlock: Twitch emotes, card packs, a special card back and even global rewards.

You can read more about it below:

With the top 16 countries and regions in the world identified, it’s time to see which teams will advance to the Hearthstone Global Games (HGG) playoffs at BlizzCon®. Celebrate the journey with HGG Cheer—a new program that allows you to support your favorite teams and unlock rewards in-game and on Twitch along the way!

From Sept. 17 through Nov. 4, you can support participating HGG teams by Cheering with Bits on Twitch. As you Cheer for a team using their dedicated, custom Cheermote, a portion of the revenue will go back to the players on that team.

When you Cheer for a team, you’ll also be able to unlock special Twitch emotes and in-game rewards for Hearthstone based on how much you Cheer. In addition to personal rewards, community support can unlock global rewards for everyone who has Cheered as overall milestones are reached.

You’ll be able to see your personal and global progress on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel. HGG supporters can see:

  • Your Progress: As you Cheer (for any team), you’ll make progress towards unlocking Twitch emotes and in-game rewards—including card packs and a card back—based on the level of Cheering you’ve done as an individual.
  • Global Progress: Monitor the overall support for HGG and keep track as overall levels of Cheering unlock global rewards for supporters over a minimum level of personal Cheering.

Here’s how to participate in HGG Cheer and unlock rewards:

  1. Link your Blizzard account to your Twitch account.
  2. Visit the official Hearthstone Twitch channel any time from Sept. 17 through Nov. 4.
  3. Select the Cheermote of the team you wish to support, then add the number of Bits you wish to Cheer (plus an optional custom message).
  4. Check back in the Tavern once goals are reached to automatically receive your rewards! (The card back will be added in a future Hearthstone update.)
 
Frequently Asked Questions

How much revenue does a team receive when I Cheer for them?

For each Bit Cheered for an HGG team, that team and Blizzard (as the tournament organizer) receive an equal amount of revenue. The HGG team’s portion is divided evenly among the four team members.

Which teams are included in HGG Cheer?

Brazil, Singapore, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Bulgaria, China, Chile, Chinese Taipei, Spain, Switzerland, New Zealand, Netherlands, Norway, Hong Kong, Portugal, and the United States are included.

How do I Cheer for a team?

To Cheer for your team of choice, click on the Bits icon in the corner of the chat window, select that team’s Cheermote, add the number of Bits you want to use, and optionally add a custom message to cheer them on.

Can I use the regular Cheer command for HGG Cheer?

No, regular Cheers won’t work for HGG Cheer. You can Cheer for any of the 16 remaining HGG teams using their team-themed Cheermotes.

I forgot to link my Blizzard Battle.net account before Cheering! Can I still get the items?

Yes! First, link your Blizzard account to your Twitch account. When you return to the Hearthstone Twitch channel, you’ll see that a “Redeem All” button has appeared. Hit that button to claim your items!

      Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
      The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu.

      The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Untamed Beastmaster could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Untamed Beastmaster could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
      The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.

      The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

      It turns out that Dragon Warrior is definitely going to return in Rastakhan's Rumble and the Warrior Legendary Champion is proof of that!
      The card was revealed in the third episode of the Wronchi Animations series of videos for Rastakhan's Rumble (here is Part 1 and Part 2). Krag'wa the Frog is literally swallowing the opponent Annoy-o-trons, when War Master Voone shows up, astounding Garrosh in the audience.
      The video has an older version of the card, since it looks like the team decided that the final version of Voone is actually a 4-mana 4/3:

      The wording is slightly vague, but the copies are added to your hand. As shown in the video, this could work great with The Boomship. However, if you are playing expensive Dragons, I don't see how useful it would be to have more copies of them unless you are absolutely sure that the game is going to last long enough so you can play them all. There's also the problem that currently in Standard there aren't that many powerful Dragons and we've yet to see any new ones in Rastakhan's Rumble. Other than that, War Master Voone and the newly revealed Firetree Witchdoctor can work great in a Dragon Warrior deck and let it be noted that they are both Even cards.

      The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
      The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

      Gral, the Shark can potentially draw you a minion but it is quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed Untamed Beastmaster.

      It seems that Dragons will have a big part in Rastakhan's Rumble as this versatile and cheap Neutral minion can Discover a spell if you are holding a Dragon!
      Hafu revealed this card on YouTube:

      We haven't seen any Dragons revealed so far, but it's safe to assume that they will have some kind of presence in Rastakhan's Rumble. People are already thinking that Dragon Warrior might be a thing, due to the reveal of Smolderthorn Lancer. The Discover component of this card makes it very versatile and probably a staple in Dragon decks to come, since it's undeniable that Dragons will keep being printed in future expansions. The potential is definitely there, but without having seen any other Dragons from the upcoming expansion it's difficult to talk about which classes Firetree Witchdoctor can find a home in.

      As the trend is in latest expansions, we have yet another minion that supports the Healing/Control Paladin archetype.
      The card was revealed by PhenomenGames on YouTube. The video is in Russian.

      Paladin gets its own version of Hooked Reaver. It's not clear whether you need to restore Health on your hero or you can just heal any minion for this to work. A lot of cards have been printed in the latest expansions that promote this archetype of Paladin deck (even though Aggro Paladin always ends up winning) and maybe it is its time to shine. Other than that, Zandalari Troll Paladins are soon coming to World of Warcraft and it's good to see them in Hearthstone as well!
