Monday we saw Blizzard ban thousands of players who were using bots in order to win gold or gain rankings in Hearthstone. Today, Blizzard has banned some top tier players who have been accused of “Win Trading” The full announcement can be found here: Fair play is at the heart of Hearthstone. The Ranked Play ladder is a place where players have the opportunity to duel and gauge their card-slinging prowess while climbing the ranks. Participating in Ranked Play should be fun, exciting, competitive, and fair. We’ve recently banned Hearthstone accounts that were found to be participating in win trading. Win trading at any rank is something that we do not take lightly, and is in violation of our Terms of Use. As we mentioned in our previous statement regarding fair play in Hearthstone, instances of cheating will not be tolerated. Accounts that were discovered participating in win trading have ...

Delivered by UPS this morning, I received this little treat from Blizzard folks This is all that came in the package. A blueprint post card of a Repair Bot along with the note “Making Plans for BlizzCon – I hope you like my invention!” It seems we aren’t the only people who received similar packages today. TouchArcade received a blue print of a Demolisher and Noxious received a blueprint of a Poultryizer. We’ve also seen a Harvest Golem blueprint floating around as well. It’s obvious that Blizzard is teasing their Hearthstone announcement at BlizzCon, and with November’s card back being Goblin themed it’s likely the next expansion could very well be mechanical focused in nature. What do we know about this next card expansion so far? Well, we know it’s going to be around 100 new cards and the way to get them will be through another set of booster packs which ...

 

Incoming Card Backs!

by Twizz on

Blizzard put out their most recent patch and it had some fairly surprising updates!  The card backs we’ve all been waiting for are now installed and ready to be unlocked. The first card back in this patch is the pumpkin back for reaching rank 20 or better this season.  This card preview was released when the month/new season first launched and we’ve all been waiting to get it! The next card back is the Blizzcon back.  You can get this nifty fella from purchasing the virtual ticket or obviously attending Blizzcon in Anaheim next week! The third card back comes from the World of Warcraft Collectors Edition purchase.  I believe that although the card back is being pre-loaded onto your system, it won’t actually be activated until Warlords of Draenor actually launches. Last but not least, they’ve already announced the card back for next season!  Usually these kinds of things ...

 

WHAT WOULD DKMR DO? #18

by Team [DKMR] on

Team DKMR: Twitter | Website | Forums Sponsored 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 in a relatively advantaged position in this game and have several options. Let’s see how you decided to progress this game. Paul said: “I would play Blademaster, heal him for a card, and probably pass.” This play betters your board presence and card advantage and keeps a Northshire Cleric for later. Ciaranirl, Peter Thorne, and Maroon5five would make the same play, but they would also play the second Northshire Cleric in order to draw two cards. This play gives you an extra card, but makes you particularly susceptible to Lightning Storm. Stolen Prayers would: “I’d probably cast Holy Fire and trade the Northshire Clecric and play the second Northshire Cleric.” This play ensures the ...

Blizzard Bans Botters

by JR Cook on

The Shaman Bots have taken a hit with several thousand of them getting banned until 2015. Blizzard announced the action on their website We’ve recently banned several thousand Hearthstone accounts that were associated with the use of third-party programs that automate gameplay, otherwise known as “bots” or “botting.” These accounts will be banned until 2015. As we’vestated, fair play is at the core of the Hearthstone experience, and cheating and botting will not be tolerated. We’re committed to creating a fun and rewarding environment for our players, and we will continue to closely monitor activities within Hearthstone and take appropriate action against cheating in any form, as outlined in our Terms of Use. From this point on, accounts found to be cheating will be permanently closed without warning. If you believe that you’ve encountered a possible bot or other form of exploitation, please let us know by emailing our Hacks ...

 

Our Extra Life Kansas City Hearthstone tournament that took place during the Archetype Gaming LAN has come and gone and we had a lot of fun despite some early issues. We had to start the tournament nearly 5 hours later than scheduled just due to power and internet outages due to all the people at the event and figuring out how we can get everyone separated on the circuits without blowing them. Because of these reasons we had decided to switch from doing a swiss tournament to double elimination. We had 28 players participate in the tournament itself (we had over 300 players participating at the entire LAN event). The top 8 went home with some pretty awesome prizes which included swag from SteelSeries, $200 Battle.net gift cards that we at BlizzPro donated, and some Hearthstone gear donated by BrawleyGames We live streamed the tournament and a good chunk of ...

We now know who will be facing off against one another in the initial phase of the Hearthstone World Championships at BlizzCon. Blizzard recently announced the groups, along with who will be providing casting and commentary. You can see the breakdown of the qualified players here: We’re going to take a run at some thoughts on what you can expect from these players at BlizzCon prior to the convention, but prior to that, it’s useful to understand how these players made it this far. Americas Firebat – Firebat came into the Americas qualifier a relative favourite, with a direct seed into the latter stage of the tournament. He advanced from the group stage behind StrifeCro in his group, placing him against the undefeated Hyped (the other direct seed) in the playoffs. Defeating Hyped to advance to BlizzCon, his big winners were Hunter and Warlock, so seeing him reprise those classes ...
