Team DKMR: Twitter | Website | ForumsSponsored by: Gunnar - 2P - Waypoint Written by Varranis Welcome to this week’s “What Would DKMR Do?” Each week we’ll present an in-game situation and discuss the possible lines of play. Here’s the scenario for this week: We’re already at 10 mana, but being a Priest mirror, barely any damage has been dealt! We have the upper hand in card advantage, but are down on board. What do we do? Galurin said: I’d argus my two creatures, crash my zombie into his and my priestess into his dark cultist and then northshire to heal my cabal priestess. This play would put us slightly ahead on board and far ahead on cards, but leave our opponent with a very threatening 4/8 Blademaster. Fortunately our hand has the necessary tools to deal with the angry orc on the following turn. Eldorian and SkarnSW agreed that they would: Play Northshire Cleric, Defender in between Cabal and ...

Following in the wake of one hell of a regional qualifier over in Europe, the Americas region is now poised to take center stage this coming weekend on October 5th. The event will be live at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, where hosts Dan “Frodan” Chou, Ryan “Realz” Masterson, and Erik “DoA” Loonquist will be running down all of the top plays as they occur.

The pirates have all gone home, drunk and tired from the party that was Ranked Play Season Six. As the weather turns to crisper temperatures, the ghouls are beginning to make their chilling presence known. No, we’ve already felt the cold touch of the Icecrown a few seasons ago. Season Seven is being commemorated with the Hallow’s End cardback! This beautiful purple and orange decoration can be yours through the standard fare of getting to Rank 20 during the month of October in Ranked Play.

China is quickly becoming thedestination for big money tournaments. If you recall, we just recently saw Tidesoftime dominate the competition at the World E-Sport Championship (WEC), which was also hosted in China and boasted the largest prize pool for a Hearthstone tournament at that present date – $62,000 USD. Well, hold on to your card collections because this next tournament is about to make that one look like a lap around the kiddie pool. The World Cyber Arena is being held over the course of October 2nd to October 5th in China and has a fully functioning Hearthstone tournament as part of its esports offerings. Manning quite a bit of the promotion for this major outing, Octavian “Kripparrian” Morosan is our main caster and host, with the live stream of the event happening on his stream (http://www.twitch.tv/nl_kripp/) and according to the following schedule provided by Kripp: The schedule is approximately as follows: Oct ...

I’m of course talking about Admirable, one of the mainstays in casting at many of our highest level tournaments. Not only is he a great caster, but the man backs it up with formidable skill, as he is a top competitor in his own right and also a sought after coach.

Congratulations to Kaor, Numberguy, Greensheep, and Kolento for making it through this weekend’s gauntlet of games and securing their tickets to BlizzCon in November to vie for their chance to be crowned the first World Champion in Hearthstone! Over the course of several days, as part of Dreamhack Stockholm, the Europe Regional Qualifiers for the World Championship took place. The hosts of the event were Frodan, Artosis, and Savjz, with many famous and well-known players from the EU scene taking their shot at casting their teammates’ and friends’ games. Some nights went long into wee hours of the morning, testing not only the players’ ability to consistently choose flawless plays, but also pushing their endurance and mental strength to the limit. There were an incredible amount of awesome moments over the course of the games and VODs continue to be uploaded to the Internet as the hours from the last ...

 

In this column, we like to feature a very different side of Hearthstone and the Hearthstone player community. We search the web for user created content inspired by Hearthstone, and share it with you whenever we can. If this song seems familiar, it’s not only because it is the official Hearthstone theme, but also because you can hear part of it during our intro for HearthPro Show. The metal cover is performed by Lucas Reis, and it is worth hearing – and seeing – Lucas’ performance in its entirety....

Blue Post Round-up

by Marc Huber on

Every Friday, we will be sharing with you our Blue Post Round-up - the “can’t miss”, quirkiest, or most insightful blue posts from the previous week. This week, we finally got the patch with the big Leeroy Jenkins and Starving Buzzard nerf. If you’ve been following Hearthstone news or playing the game at all, this was practically impossible to miss. So I’m gonna just go ahead and skip it for this week’s Blue Post Round-up. Community Manager Zeriyah however posted a very insightful comment on the official forums that provides some insight into how Blizzard looks at and evaluates community feedback. Perhaps surprisingly to some, suggestions and constructive feedback do not end up in a black hole. The post below combines two fairly long blue posts, but it’s very much worth a read. You’re going to see a wide variety of discussions on the forums, but you’ll ultimately see some common topics arise as well. More often ...
