Weekly Hearthstone Roundup #2 (16th-22th December)

Previous weeks:


Thank you for the comments last week, we’ll try to improve the site the best way we can. For now, I present the second installment of Hearthstone Weekly Roundup. It’s the series targeted at more casual players, who aren’t constantly looking for new things that are happening around Hearthstone. We’re going to do it for you!

This week wasn’t exciting compared to the last one when it comes to game news. No breakthroughs, no crazy stories, no announcements that are important for the average player. Still, we’ve tried our best to compile whatever we found!

General/Game News

  • GosuGamers: Blizzard bans Bo3 as eligible format in 2017 HCT ruleset, changes Last Call – Only tournaments with at least Bo5 format (first player to win 3 games) will be able to hand out the HCT. That’s a big improvement to a consistency, as Bo3 (first player to win 2 games) isn’t enough in Hearthstone – a game with such a big variance. In addition, instead of a Last Call invitational tournament, players with the most HCT points gathered throughout the whole year will get straight to the Championship. It promotes the consistency among the players and makes high ladder and tournament finishes even more desirable.
  • Esports: Misfits Announces New Hearthstone Team – The eSports organization with already established League of Legends, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm and Super Smash Bros teams has created a new Hearthstone team. And not just any team – first three players are Georgec, Pokravac and StanCifka. Each one of them is very well known in competitive Hearthstone community.
  • Blizzard is looking for a new duo of casters for the Hearthstone Collegiate National Championship – All you need to do is find a casting partner, download a video of a Bo5 series of Hearthstone games and show your casting skills by commentating it. Upload the video to YouTube and tweet it at @PlayHearthstone before the 13th of January!
  • ShackNews: Hearthstone: Making the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan – Shack News takes an inside look at the creation of Hearthstone’s latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, with Blizzard designer Matt Place and art director Ben Thompson.
  • This week’s Tavern Brawl is Clockwork Card Dealer – If possible, you draw a 1 mana card on turn 1, 2 mana card on turn 2, 3 mana card on turn 3 etc. If you don’t have any card of such a mana cost in your deck, you draw a random card instead. Oh the definition of curvestone. Warning: Only Standard cards.





If there are any more news from last week we might have missed, let us know in the comments. And, once again, if you have any suggestions for this series (or for the site in general!) we’d really appreciate if you’d let us know.

Good luck on the ladder and until next time!
