BlizzPro's Hearthstone

 

In a little over 24 hours Blizzard will be announcing their next adventure in Hearthstone. We have pointed out that it is likely an adventure mode based on Karazhan. Up until today, it was just a registered parked domain on GoDaddy. You can see more about this in the Disguised Toast video he released last week However, today, that all changed. The website now gives a 403 error Forbidden. This means it no longer allows public access and once Blizzard announces the new expansion this will be removed. This happens on all past Blizzard domain names with their new games. Furthermore, if you do a whois search for Karazhan.com you will come up with the name server NS-EAST.CERF.NET which has an A record that points to the IP address of 24.105.29.30. I’ll try to spare you the truly technical details but this means the DNS record for karazhan.com is pointing to that ...

A new patch vervsion (5.2.2.13807) has been released on July 26th, 2016. It contains minor bug fixes and it promises to correct the sluggish iOS version as well as the connection issues that plagued iPhone and iPad users the last two weeks. The iOS version will be out soon™ – it still has to pass apple approval until it is available to you. The iOS version (5.2.13865) is out now....

Hi, this is Danny Donuts again with another installment in my series on teching your deck. (If you missed out on the introduction to teching article check it out here!) In this article I will be going a bit more in depth and discussing how to build and tech a deck to counter various other decks. Midrange Hunter is an extremely versatile deck which can be modified to counter many different match-ups. It has a core group of cards that rarely change from build to build, as well as having space to add cards which can help improve match-ups. This makes it a perfect deck to start understanding how to deckbuild, or if you are already an experienced player, a way to tech your deck against specific match-ups and gain a higher win rate. It is especially interesting to look at this deck currently, as the midrange hunter deck is a ...

I feel that the meta has shifted towards more aggro decks so the Doomsayer + Elise Starseeker version has become a better choice.  Also, many players in warrior mirrors have figured out that playing around Doomcaller is the best choice of action by using the Sylvanas play. Card discussions 2x Execute: needed to remove minions 2x Shield Slam: removal, works very well with Shield Block and Shieldbearers to remove minions 2x Fiery War Axe: ggainst aggro removes early game minions and doesn’t let opponent build up a board. 1x Slam: used for card draw, to proc executes and remove early game minions. 1x Beckoner of Evil: early game good against aggro, buffs ...

 

New Announcement Coming July 28th

by JR Cook on

The Hearthstone team just sent out an invite to an event that will be streamed on July 28th, and with it presumably the announcement for the next adventure mode (especially considering the invite literally says they have an unforgettable adventure planned). We have our thoughts that Karazhan will be announced and it looks like a week from Thursday we’ll find out if we’re correct. The event will be streamed at http://twitch.tv/playhearthstone on July 28th at 11:00 PM PDT. The email we received said it’s coming to ChinaJoy so might be the reason for the late time frame. Yes, it says PM and not AM....

Last week I wrote a post about a supposed leak from a Chinese individual who predicted Morgl the Oracle correctly that the next Hearthstone adventure would be a WoW raid with 3 Chinese symbols. The 3 that were broken down to match that was Karazhan, Terrace of Endless Springs, and Ulduar. I had made an argument that a Pandaria expansion seemed possible since we still haven’t seen the datamined Halfhill card find it’s way in the game yet and I figured it might have something to do with the next expansion. However, yesterday has changed my mind. Yesterday, winners of the Fireside Gathering at the University of California, Irvine received a golden ticket. They received an invitation to an upcoming event with no date or time associated with it yet. The invite says “You are cordially invited to a most majestic, marvelous, magical event, the likes of which have never ...

According to Yong Woo, the patch is already submitted to Apple and is only waiting for approval. So hang in there all you iOS users, Blizzard took care. Shoutouts to Team 5 and Yong Woo to be so communicative about the problem. If you cannot wait, try to change you DNS to “8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4.“. Follow the instructions on how to to that by hitting the link. It finally worked for me....

Introduction At first glance, going second seems like an unfair advantage. You get “The Coin” AND an extra card – great! But is that really true? Is the first turn advantage (FTA) really overcompensated? There were and there still are a lot of discussions going on about this topic. Lately, The Coin has gotten talked about even more with an increasing number of third party statistics available. It is and was common knowledge, that there is a small advantage. Blizzard themselves stated in 2013 at Blizzon, that the difference is at around 3% in favor of playing before your opponent. For more history on the development of the FTA balancing you can check out this article on the TempoStorm site. Following, I will give you a short summary about the newest statistics surrounding FTA. Importantly, we have to distinguish between Arena and Standard play modes when looking at the topic. After ...
