BlizzPro's Hearthstone

 

Team DKMR: Twitter | Website | Forums Sponsored by: Hearthstats.net Spoiling Naxrammas There’s no time more exciting for a CCG than spoiler season! Now that we’ve gotten a peak at the new Adventure Mode, Curse of Naxxramas, spoiler season has officially begun! Varranis of team Don’t Kick my Robot is here today to talk about the new cards we’ve seen so far. Deathrattle is the preeminent and apt focus for the cards in Curse of Naxxramas, so it’s no surprise that almost all the new cards we’ve seen revolve around the mechanic. Let’s take a look! Undertaker Undertaker is very similar to a few cards we’ve seen before; namely Mana Wyrm and Secretkeeper. Secretkeeper has never been an all-star, but Mana Wyrm is arguably one of the stronger Mage cards. So on which side of the power spectrum does Undertaker lie? We’re inclined to think he’s more a Mana Wyrm than a Secretkeeper. The key difference ...

As I predicted previously, the March that we saw from the tournament scene could only provide for bigger and better opportunities in April. Well, it is indeed shaping up to be one heck of a month if you’re a competitive Hearthstone player, as we now have yet another entry to get excited about. The folks at TakeTV – the same people that brought you Seatstory Cup #1 - are at it again with a new tournament set to take place this weekend from April 18th through to April 20th. This will be an eight player bracket with a prize purse of $3,000 at stake. Only six of those players were determined via invitations; the remaining two players qualified via an open bracket competition held a couple of Fridays ago. The Round of Eight is set to take place this Friday, April 18th. Further details regarding the players, the rules of the tournament, and ...

This week’s episodes have actually already taken place, as season five of ESGN’s Fight Night rolled right into season six with no break for other games like they have done previously. You’ll hear no complaining from any of us Hearthstone fans and despite the quick rollout, I still wanted to provide you with the press release we received yesterday in case you were still in need of information on where you get VODs or what to expect from the next few weeks’ run of episodes. Of note, the show is moving to airing only twice a week, rather than the usual five times a week for two weeks format. Hearthstone Season 6 ESGNTV will also continue its show about Blizzard’s popular trading card game with 10 new episodes of the sixth season of “Fight Night” – Hearthstone Edition, which can now be seen every Tuesday and Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. PDT / 9:30 p.m. CET.

  In Hearthstone, Elite Tauren Chieftan is a single Tauren lead guitarist. Originally, Elite Tauren Chieftain was a five-man band made up of Blizzard employees. Their in-game stand-ins are various members of the Horde. Songs initially reflected Warcraft subject matter, but later also incorporated StarCraft and Diablo as well. Their first song, “Power of the Horde”, played over the credits of Warcraft III: TFT. The band Elite Tauren Chieftain has undergone numerous name changes in an effort to reflect the current highest level of players in World of Warcraft. The current official band name is Level 90 Elite Tauren Chieftain, or L90ETC for short. Previous monikers for the band were The Artists Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain (TAFKAL80ETC), Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain (L80ETC), Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain (L70ETC), Level 60 Elite Tauren Chieftain (L60ETC), and the original Tenth Level Tauren Chieftain (L10TC). In-game Appearances In World of Warcraft, Elite Tauren Chieftain performs “Power of the Horde” at ...

Stephen was our man on the scene at PAX East, so Shauna and Marc get to grill him about everything that went on in Boston. We even woke him up to do this show! In case you missed our updates on the website, here is all you need to know about PAX East and Hearthstone. We talk in-depth about the Naxxramas Adventure Mode announcement (a short official announcement audio clip is included – sorry for the sound quality), and also discuss some player unpleasantness at the recent NESL “King of the Hill” tournament.

With Curse of Naxxramas revealed this weekend at PAX East 2014, we had the opportunity to sit down and talk about the game and it’s future with Game Director Eric Dodds and Production Director Jason Chayes. Our very own Hearthstone Site Manager Stephen Stewart was able to field questions clarifying what we should expect with Curse of Naxxramas, what went on during its development, and what else we can expect going forward with Hearthstone such as eSports features like spectator mode, in game tournament features, and even a friendly arena option. This interview was originally going to be a video interview, but unfortunately our microphone had a malfunction during the interview. Since this was shot on a convention floor without the microphone it was very difficult to hear the conversation. We apologize we’re not able to release a video/audio version but we went through and transcribed the video for you ...

Blizzard added a new selection of Hearthstone-themed items to the Blizzard gear store today. Shoppers can find throw pillows, coasters, mugs and a screen cleaner. All items are available for purchase now at gear.blizzard.com/...

 

It’s not uncommon to come across the Twitter account of a Blizzard employee. Like us, they enjoy socializing, keeping abreast of conversation topics, et cetera. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to know what it is exactly they do in their roles working on our favorite games. We might see job titles, but those often don’t tell they entire story, especially when it comes to Hearthstone. Senior Producer Yong Woo reiterates as much in the video below, but it’s worth mentioning again. Given Team Five’s relatively small size, most of the team’s members are cross-functional. They do multiple things. It’s hard to know who does what! Yong Woo does a weekly stream wherein he plays Hearthstone and tries his best to answer viewer questions, assuming they don’t pertain to off-limits topics such as release dates, pricing points and the like. Today he took some time to discuss just what his role is as ...
