Hello Everyone,

Over the past few weeks my family has been rocked by the divorce of my parents, who for obvious reasons will go unnamed. At first, I supported the changes that were coming along with my parent's divorce for they both seemed happier and it tossed a substantial amount of added responsibility onto my soldiers, which I actually enjoyed. I think it helped that I spent most of my time away from them while I lived at school but overall I thought things were going ok and that it could have the potential to be even better then before. Then, I came back home...

 

When I came back home I was smacked with the drama and tension that had grown between my family during my time at school and what a shock it was. My father's side of my family had completely excommunicated anyone who had even an inkling of a relationship with my mother and they all seemed to enjoy pretending like she, her family and her friends didn't exist. I'm the only link that my father's family can use for communication between them and my mother and what a stressful situation that is. Questions, emails, mail, feelings of resentment, threats, etc... Basically, a whole bunch of things I had to communicate and communicate nicely.

 

Meanwhile, my mother is dying inside. My mother, being soft spoken and very sensitive, took the brunt of the weight of the divorce on her soldiers. She took the blame, and also took the hate. Although she has her friends to comfort her and obviously me and her family, she still beats herself up. For months she was a shell of her former self and it was hard to see her like that. I would only see her when I came to visit from school but even then I knew when she was forcing herself to smile.

 

See, the divorce wasn't any one person's fault, which is why my mom was in a torn state. She knew the divorce had to happen because she wasn't happy in the position she was in but my Dad had no idea she wasn't happy. So when the idea of a divorce came up he immediately looked to pin it on something. He decided to pin it on my mom's best friend, whom she had been spending more time with and confiding in during the rocky time of her relationship.

 

My dad accused my mom of cheating and sleeping around, which she did none of, but he wouldn't listen when she tried to tell him the truth and wanted the divorce now more then ever.

 

Then enter me, I'm everyone's confidant and ally during this hard time. Both my mother and father felt ok confiding in me but made it very clear I couldn't tell the other parent without risking that trust. I knew both of sides of the story, I knew what was going on and the truth and I could have said something to both my parents but I stuck to my word. I basically was forced to watch as my family crumpled while I held the key to keep it together. This killed me inside but I hid it for I don't think my parents could deal with a depressed son while going through this divorce.

 

A few days after the divorce, my dad already had a girlfriend, seemingly to spite my mother. My mother has her best friend who know has started to slowly move into her house, confirming my Dad's suspicions that she had been cheating (which she had not!).  In reality, the relationship with my mom and her friend was completely independent and had nothing to do with my Dad or the divorce.  

 

As you can imagine, i've been pretty stressed. So i've turned to you for help. I have always wanted to livestream and to just have people to talk to about these problems that won't pity party me or step in and invade my life. And because I went away to school, I lost a lot of my good friends back at home and have nobody to confide my own feelings in.

 

I ask you to work your magic for me and help me to develop a community where no child, teenager or adult will have to feel the way that I did during this hard time; lost and without a friend to confide in.

 

I will be livestreaming almost every night for the rest of the summer and hopefully into the next year when I travel back to school. I will start my steam in between 7:30 - 9:00 PM PST every night and end whenever I get tired. Check my twitter and Facebook for more stream time updates. I will be there for anyone who needs to talk. I will be playing lots of Hearthstone with a major focus on education and viewer interaction. I will be breaking down constructed deck theories, drafting Arenas while explaining card choices, doing giveaways and interacting with viewers whenever possible.

 

We will make a strong and supportive community together. Thank you.

      Card reveal for Knights of the Frozen Throne continues with Blood Razor, a neutral Legendary and Prince Taldaram.
      If you missed previous reveals or need information about the latest Hearthstone expansion, you can find them in our Knights of the Frozen Throne hub page.
      Warrior's Blood Razor
      The new Warrior card has been revealed via The Legend of Slag. The card makes King Mosh good and battlecry & deathrattle effects make it a flexible choice for many Warrior cards.

      Prince Taldaram
      This is a new neutral Legendary card, revealed exclusively on Hearthpwn. Possible synergies are Malygos, Leeroy Jenkins or Prophet Velen.

      Blood-Queen Lanathel is a new legendary Warlock card that was just revealed via PCGamesN.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.

      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival.
