BlizzPro's Hearthstone

 

Introduction Yogg-Saron is a very special card. If I had to choose one card to describe what does Hearthstone differentiates form physical card games, this would be it. I also use to call him “Yogg-Saron, RNGesus himself”. Another aspect that Yogg brought to the community is an entertaining one.  This card made streams way more exciting. Therefore my second nickname for him is “Yogg-Saron, Streamer’s Delight”. Besides that, against all odds and randomness, the card is surprisingly good. I will try to highlight why by the means of my usual number crunching and summary of articles the community already produced. All numbers will be presented in an infographic. Anyway, I will do it a little different today. Rather than doing a graphic that lists all spells, the way I did it with the Forbidden Shaping Infographic, I will give you a bunch of charts. Why? Putting all 226 spells in a graphic is a tedious ...

Blizzard released a new player spotlight post on their main page. It is about Deerjason who qualified for the Americas Spring Championchip happening this weekend, beginning June 25th on the official PlayHearthstone channel on Twitch Player Spotlight: Deerjason (Official Hearthstone Blog)...

A few days back, there was an interview published on IGN by Cam Shea where he talked to Mike Donais (senior game designer) and Peter Whalen (game designer) asking them various interesting questions about how the design process of Whispers of the Old Gods happened. A lot of interesting Topics are tackled in this well written article, e.g. that there will be no further cultist for C’Thun in upcoming expansions. Another interesting Topic was the design of N’Zoth, which underwent different iterations until it ended up in ist final form. I highly encourage to give it a read. IGN Interview with Mike Donais and Peter Whalen Have fun!...

Secrets have kind of fallen out of favor in Standard with Mad Scientist missing. HSSpaceWizard made a nice video (see below) for hearthhead.com in which he explains the details and “The State of Secrets” in Standard. This reminded me to update my old Secrets Infographic  for Whispers of the Old Gods. Nothing more, nothing less. Have fun!...

Today, a post on pcgamer crushed the rumors that the “Old Gods Travel Agency” could be a new adventure. A Blizzard representative denied, that the post was hinting to new content. It was rather meant to “(…) remind people about Whispers of the Old Gods.” It seems, we have to wait until something exiting happens, right? NO! There is always Yogg!  Have fun!...

A few days ago the Hearthstone page sent out this tweet that included a video. Want to work with @bdbrode @mxma101 & @figluster on #Hearthstone UI design? https://t.co/VFns9YPtmmhttps://t.co/YuAdkmalbf — Hearthstone (@PlayHearthstone) June 10, 2016 The purpose of the tweet was to announce a job opening on the design team but we also got a glimpse at a few spoilers for upcoming icons in the game. The icons will be in the lower left side of the screen and will be there to give information out about the various modes in the game. Two of the talked about icons were for Arena and Tavern Brawl. The Arena icon will tell you how many wins and losses you have making it easier to keep track of during runs. The Tavern Brawl icon will allow you to hover it and it will pop-out the current rules of the Brawl in case you need ...

Welcome to my newest infographic! Just to remind you, this infographic is meant for Standard play mode only. The evaluation of weapons might be wrong under certain circumstances but I think they are a good approximation. I compared it to another evaluation from a post  by Tamarin24 in the CompetitiveHS subreddit and I saw that I agreed with him (or her) almost 100%. I adopted from him the even worse rating for Cursed Blade in a separate “CURSED!” category. In general, Malkorok is a really straight forward warrior legendary with the battlecry to gain a weapon. His stats, 6 attack and 5 health, are subpar for a seven mana minion but the battlecry can give you the opportunity to interact with the board immediately or push for damage. The question at hand is: HOW good is the battlecry? Details will be shown in the infographic but to give you a ...
