Blizzard just released their first video teaser on their YouTube channel. This is the second (professional) short video related to the new Journey to Un’Goro expansion with the first being the live stream announcement. This time, it is not our beloved and rapping game director who is the main character but the famous Professor Georg Herbert Doyle the Fourth. He is on the hunt of “the last Kaleidosaur” named Galvadon (see below in the screenshot section). From the video we learn (spoiler warning!) that Galvadon is the reward for the Paladin Legendary Quest. It is a 5-mana Legendary Paladin Beast – wait, what?! Beasts in Paladin? There are a few more things mentioned like  “dangerous lightning storms” and two plants named Fire Thistle and Lily Feather, which might be cards too.  The video can be watched below after some screenshots.

In what might be the single greatest Hearthstone video ever created, Blizzard’s Korean Hearthstone team is quickly ascending to fame. The video below virally swept Twitter at the start of this weekend. It has all of the elements that you would want in a Hearthstone commercial: epicness, hilariousness, choreography, and a strange storyline. I would love for someone to provide a translation (loose or strict), so that we may better understand the greatness that is before us:

Seatstory Cup took place this past weekend and if you didn’t get a chance to check it out while it was going down, you missed out on a very chill casting atmosphere and a very intense tournament atmosphere. As per usual with Dennis and TakeTV’s tournaments, the participants themselves were casting the games. Gnimsh and EKOP were by far my favorite casting duo because they pretty much disagreed with each other on everything until Gnimsh eventually gave in to EKOP. You could tell they were having fun with it while still delivering high caliber analysis of the games. The overall winner was StrifeCro, netting $8,000 for himself after defeating Gnimsh in the finals; the latter would walk away with $4,000. Trump rounded out the top three, claiming $2,000 for his efforts. For a full recap of how the original eight players moved through their games, check out Liquipedia’s entry for
