Ranked Play Season 2 Ends, Top Players Announced


Ranked Play Season 2 has ended, and the Black Temple card back has been distributed to all players who have earned Rank 20 during the season. Blizzard has revealed the top 100 players on the ladder, including the 16 new Legend players who will qualify for participation in the Hearthstone Americas Qualifier!

Ranked Play Season 3 Card Back Revealed


June is here and with it comes Ranked Play Season 3, featuring a new card back as well as new opportunities for 16 skilled players to top the Legend ranks and qualify for a spot a the World Championship Qualifiers. This month, players who reach Rank 20 have an all-new card back to earn. The Rainbow! card back will be awarded at the end of the season to all players who have earned at least Rank 20 during the season! This is definitely my favorite card back, as it reminds me of Diablo III's Whimsyshire! Is it a reference? Who knows! One thing is for certain, it's definitely colorful!

      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!

      The Hearthstone subreddit interviewed Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden on the upcoming Rastakhan's Rumble expansion.
      You can read the entire interview here.
      Interview Highlights
      Rastakhan's Rumble has been in development for almost a year, from January 2018. Spirits will be appearing in the Arena. We won't see much of old Keywords in Rastakhan's Rumble, but they are open to revisiting them (Hero and highlander cards, Inspire and C'Thun were mentioned). One of the design lessons Team 5 has learned is that they want more build-around cards that have cheap rarity (like the Spirits). With Rastakhan's Rumble, they wanted classes to feel like a team. Captain Hooktusk, the Rogue champion, is an original Hearthstone character. Pirates are mostly in Rogue in this expansion. They are still pretty aggressive, but there are some more expensive pirates in this set.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble starts with a Paladin card.
      Every recent Hearthstone expansion has had its own series of funny blog posts and videos. Blizzard collaborated with Wronchi in The Boomsday Project and now they are back for Rastakhan's Rumble.
      Hearthstone's heroes are waiting in line to get tickets to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Everyone has the gold for it, except from poor (literally) Uther. He does get a card reveal though and the story will be continued from what was teased in the end.

      People have been comparing this card to Evasion and Ice Block. It certainly has it pros and cons. You can play it proactively, even at high health and you can combine it perfectly with a weapon swing or powerful healing spells. On the other hand, Time Out! requires more setting-up and better game knowledge of what cards your opponent might have on his/her hand. This card could potentially go into a Control Paladin deck, along with Shirvallah, the Tiger legendary Loa minion.
      What do you think?

      The game client is now ready for the release of Rastakhan's Rumble next month. The new Classic cards have also been patched into the game.
      With the announcement of the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion during BlizzCon, the team was quick to patch it in the game in preparation for the December 4 release.
      You can already pre-purchase the new expansion with two options: the full Bundle contains 50 packs, the Ready to Rumble! card back and the new Shaman skin, King Rastakhan.

      The more affordable Challenger's Bundle includes 17 packs and the thematic card back.

      Hearthstone is also celebrating reaching 100 million players. Log in between November 7-11 to receive 6 The Boomsday Project packs and repeatable Players Quests that you can complete with your friends.
      This patch finally adds the new Classic cards for Mage, Rogue and Warlock.


      The following card backs have been added to the game:
      Ready to Rumble – Acquired from a Rastakhan’s Rumble pre-purchase bundle.
      Frostwolf – Acquired from winning fives games in Ranked Play, December 2018.
      Good Cheer – Acquired from the Twitch cheer promotion.
      The Third War – Acquired from the Warcraft III: Reforged promotion.
      Lastly, the patch includes improvements to Hearthstone's mobile app and various bug fixes, which you can read here.

      Hearthstone has achieved a truly massively impressive feat, reaching 100 million players worldwide! That's a whole lot of turns being taken, ropes burned, minions summoned etc, so Blizzard are having a party to celebrate. Luckily for us, the party is for everyone! Starting Wednesday, November 7th and ending on the 10th, we're all getting 6 free Boomsday Project packs, as well as a potential 500 gold for playing friendly matches!
      100 Million Users (source)
      There really is always room for another: the Hearthstone Tavern has now welcomed over 100 Million players to date!
      Let’s Celebrate Together!
      We’re humbled and grateful that so many players have chosen to join us in the Hearthstone Tavern! As our way of saying thank you, we’re throwing a party! 

      Starting November 7 at 10:00 am PST through November 10, everyone who logs in will receive six free The Boomsday Project card packs. Then hang out and play with friends to earn up to 500 gold! Everyone* will receive the Celebrate the Players quest which rewards 100 gold when you play a friendly challenge. This celebratory quest is repeatable up to five times—you can even do them all in the same day!—for a total of 500 gold!
      Thanks for joining us, and we look forward to sharing many more years of Hearthstone fun with you. See you in the Tavern!
       
      *You’ll need to complete the introductory quests “First Blood” and “The Duelist” to unlock daily quests, (or “Ready for Action” if you’re a returning player). Be sure to make room in your quest log before November 7 so you don’t lose a quest you intended to complete. Just like Play a Friend!, don’t concede too early, or you may not receive credit for completing the quest. Unlike Play a Friend!, Celebrate the Players only provides rewards to players who have this quest in their own quest log.
