It's all about Edwin VanCleef and the Defias Brotherhood this month on Hearthstone.

The October 2018 card back features the red mask - trademark of the Defias Brotherhood. This is an evil band of rogues, scavengers, thieves and pirates that are trying to overthrow the Kingdom of Stormwind.

Interestingly enough, they actually did nothing wrong: they were stonemasons that weren't paid for rebuilding Stormwind after some Orcs burned the city to the ground. For some reason, though, they are the bad guys because capitalism always wins and free labour is morally gray not wrong.

OK, that statement may have been slightly exaggerated. You can earn the VanCardback by winning 5 games in Standard or Wild Ranked mode during this month.

Good luck!

Read: because a certain Dragon wanted to show up dad and actually become Queen where he'd failed to become King, and hid her machinations behind civil unrest. Poor Edwin never realized he'd been manipulated from the start.

There are a lot of stories in wow, where just like here wrong people were portrayed as bad guys. Actually that makes the whole wow world more realistic :)

      Jump into Hearthstone's tenth expansion!
      The last expansion of the Year of the Raven is now live in all regions and we have compiled everything you need to know about it!
      Rastakhan's Rumble introduces the new Overkill keyword and two different types of class cards - Spirits (Rare) and Loa (Legendary). As usual, each class will have two Legendaries: a Loa and the class Champion. The whole thematic of the expansion is that each class is a team of their own, so most class cards synergise well with each other. You can find all of the 135 cards revealed in our dedicated expansion hub.

      Upon logging in, you will receive a bunch of free stuff. You will get one of the nine Legendary Loa, as well as two Spirits from the same class. You will also get 6 Rastakhan's Rumble packs for free - and an additional one if you participated in the voting that took place on the official site. These rewards won't be around forever, so grab them during the expansion's launch period!
      The Rumble Run is the single-player adventure mode that accompanies this expansion. It will be released in 9 days from today, on December 13.
      Don't forget to share your best pack openings, as well as some week 1 crazy decks that you like!
