BlizzPro's Hearthstone

 

WELL MET! Join John, J.R., and Kevin every week and listen in as they discuss strategy, competitive play, card & deck analysis, and more! This podcast is produced to help players up their game in Hearthstone, keep up with the tournament scene, and have some fun along the way. We record live every Sunday evening and release our audio podcast the following Monday! This week we recorded a day late as Kevin had a last minute change of plans, so in his place we brought back THE Tannon Grace. This week we talked about all of the new changes coming to Hearthstone regarding the new Wild and Standard formats, our thoughts on it, and what we think this will do to change the game. We also discussed Firebat leaving Team Archon, the results of the Redbull Team Brawl, and we talked about the Team Celestial meta report and what we think ...

Welcome back to Mending Mondays, a weekly feature where I, Dannie "IAmDiR23" Ray will take a look at some of the worst cards in the Hearthstone and evaluate why they are deemed to be horrible, and what could be done to fix them....

Amazon is currently offering up to 15% off on Amazon coins with a 20% coin back deal. This ends February 12, 2016 so take advantage of it now. 10,000 coins when all spent on packs including the coin back will net you 100 packs for $90 (90 cents per pack) 50,000 coins when all spent on packs will net you 500 packs for $425 (85 cents per pack). Cheapest you can get them straight from Blizzard is around $1.17 per pack. NOTE: Once the coin back deal is done, this is still cheaper than the Blizzard store. You will get 87 packs though instead of 100 ($1.03 per pack). There are a few quirks to doing this. You have to use an Android mobile device or use an Android emulator (good tutorial here on how to use one). Using an Android emulator is 100% safe to use and is not ...

 

Year of the Kraken Infographic

by otakumz on

Blizzard announced on Febraury 2nd that they will soon split Play Mode into two types, “Standard” and “Wild,” as soon as the still-unannounced Spring 2016 expansion hits. The Year of the Kraken will begin shortly. But what are the consequences? While in Wild all will be as it used to be, including all the cards we love and maybe some cards we hate (hello Dr. Boom!), Standard will limit the card pool to the more recent expansions. Namely, with the next set, all the cards from the “Naxxramas” and “Goblins vs. Gnomes” expansions will be unavailable in this play mode. DannieRay23 already wrote an article about that here on Blizzpro. Allow me to bring the facts to you in a more visual way. I will also extend the consequences not only on the cards that are banned directly but also the cards that are heavily affected by the phased out cards. There is already a ...

Dannie Ray looks a the new Standard format and tries to explain what it really means for the game of Hearthstone. Is this just a money grab by Blizzard, or is this being done to keep the metagame healthy? Lets find out! ...

 

Year of the Kraken Review

by JR Cook on

We put together a special little VIDEO episode of Well Met this evening as our reactions to the new format changes coming to Hearthstone. This won’t be available in audio form but we’ll be talking about it more in depth in our episode this upcoming Sunday. Due to the fact that we felt this is the most significant change Hearthstone has had since the release of the game, we wanted to discuss it more since we’d been talking about it privately between us all afternoon. These are our thoughts about the changes, what we like about it, and the issues we have with some of it....

Senior Designer Ben Brode just released a new video today outlining 2 new modes that will be available in Hearthstone, as well as getting 9 new deck slots. The two new play modes are standard and wild. Standard will include all basic and classic cards plus sets released in the current and previous year. This current format is called the “Year of the Kraken” and will include Blackrock Mountain, The Grand Tournament, League of Explorers and any other new expansions that will be released in 2016. This will be the format moving forward for the Hearthstone World Championships. This format change is exactly what we just discussed in the last episode of Well Met Podcast as a way of keeping the meta fresh and changing – while also helping out new players to not have to need every single card of every single set to be competitive. The other play mode ...

 

While a lot of people scream for nerfs when cards feel overpowered, I don’t see many people calling for buffs to long forgotten cards. In my competition-based mind, every non-joke card should at least be a decent fit in a viable deck. Just ignore the fact that some bad cards do have their purpose design-wise, ok? Still, I believe the meta would grow a lot more interesting if a wider array of cards suddenly started seeing play. So without further ado… Welcome back to Mending Mondays, a weekly feature where I, Dannie “IAmDiR23” Ray will take a look at some of the worst cards in the Hearthstone and evaluate why they are deemed to be horrible, and what could be done to fix them. Bolf Ramshield has a very interesting ability, as it redirects all incoming Hero damage to himself. It is designed to protect your face against both minions, ...

This podcast is produced to help players up their game in Hearthstone, keep up with the tournament scene, and have some fun along the way. We record live every Sunday evening and release our audio podcast the following Monday! Episode 46 saw some very cool competitive scene stuff going down, but not before we talked about our own Hearthstone experiences in January! Kevin hit Legend using a Zoo Warlock list, while John fell just shy at Rank 1. JR had to miss out on his tournament, but talked through his deck selection strategy for a Conquest (bring four, ban one) tournament setting! In Hearthstone esports this week, we’re excited for some fresh ideas hitting the scene – namely: The Red Bull Hearthstone Team Brawl Team Archon’s Curse ...

Team F2K explain the deck lists and how to play them. View past Deck Lists of the Week. Today I want to present you the OTK-Warlock. It’s a bit unusual OTK deck with a demon tech as a 2nd win condition. Strategy As I mentioned the deck has 2 main win strategies. Try to keep the board clear until you have collected all your combo pieces and finish your opponent off with the combo of: Arcane Golem + 1-4 (Dark Peddler) Power Overwhelming + Faceless Manipulator. Your second win condition is to overwhelm your opponent by pulling out Mal’Ganis with Voidcaller and copy it with Faceless Manipulator. Deck Mulligan Always ...
