Goblins vs Gnomes is finally upon us! After weeks of anticipation, last night saw the full release of the expansion on the North American server. Unfortunately, due to server complications and shop issues, the European release has been delayed while Blizzard aim to make the experience for us EU players as smooth as possible.


Update: The expansion is now released in Europe, however many users are experiencing server disconnect issues, and Blizzard are said to be working on the problems.

Blizzard Icon Goblins vs Gnomes Europe Launch Update

Goblins vs Gnomes will soon be unleashed upon Europe! Preparation for its arrival has already begun, and Hearthstone will be undergoing maintenance starting at 9:00 p.m. CET. We expect maintenance to complete within a few hours.


A warning to EU players, and NA players who have not yet unleashed their pack buying spree, be sure to select Goblins vs Gnomes packs when using the shop! Don't make the mistake that many popular streamers made on launch day and buy large quantities of vanilla packs, since the shop has them selected by default.
My thoughts and initial impressions will follow as soon as I am able to access the expansion on EU. However, in the meantime you can check out the content that I have already produced. In the form of the updated Arena Tier Lists, and Card Descriptions for all 123 new GvG cards!

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
