Board State Discontinuing For Foreseeable Future

After much deliberation, I’ve come to the conclusion that I must step away from this blog for the foreseeable future. I have simply way too much going on these days with wedding planning, two podcasts and the BlizzPro Weekly gig that something had to go. Naturally, this explains why I have been more inconsistent with…

“Wild” Prediction – March Tempest Keep Expansion?

Sometimes I like to take a “Wild” guess, just in case I’m right. That way, of course I can go back and yell “IN YO FACE!” at the top of my lungs to everyone. Especially people who would have no idea what I’m talking about. Seriously, did you see what I did there?  “Wild”?  You…

HearthstOMG NEW MODES AND DECK SLOTS

I’m guessing you didn’t hear about this week’s news here first, and that’s fine! If for some reason you have no idea what I’m talking about in this article, please read this first, and then come back for my thoughts. http://www.polygon.com/2016/2/2/10888192/hearthstone-new-modes-2016-deck-slots Here’s your TL;DR version: When the next expansion comes out, two new modes will…

Reno Freaking Way

This week, I’ve discovered a new love in Reno Lock. After hitting my Golden Paladin, I just haven’t felt the need to really grind out more pally games, even though the Coradin Secret Paladin deck I’d been running was pretty fun and effective. In the end, I’m of the camp that just feels like I’m…

I’m Back!

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these.  The holidays were quite crazy, and now work has ramped up quite a bit as well.  However, I’m coming back with a vengeance, dang it–and there’s plenty going on in Hearthstone right now! I already hit Rank 5 this month, in the same…

Golden Heroes – a First World Problem

I just wanted to write about this phenomenon I’ve experienced in both Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm. It’s a potential issue impacting either game’s replay value. And in either case, it could use some improvement. I’m talking about Golden Heroes in Hearthstone, and also attaining level 10 on individual Heroes in HoTS. Recently, as…

Feel the Burn with SMOrc Shaman

https://tempostorm.com/hearthstone/decks/reynad-smorc-shaman Tempo Storm manager Reynad is absolutely killing it with a couple new post-mid-League of Explorers deck concepts, and his new SMOrc Shaman is by far my favorite. I was looking for an aggro-centric deck to try and just push my Rank 5 this month and get that golden Epic card. I think this is…

League of Explorers Wing Two Thoughts

Well first of all, I played in that BlizzPro tournament at SoPro gaming in Overland Park, KS over the past weekend. I got knocked out first round, but felt better when I learned that the guy who beat me went on to win the whole thing! So congrats to Runetail, for sure. I did take…

Reno 911: League of Explorers is out today!

So Blizzcon has happened, and as it turns out I’m not much of a psychic…if you go back and read my Blizzcon predictions post, you’ll realize I guessed NOTHING correctly! So I can’t be a prophet-for-profit as I’d originally planned. Oh well. I’d not even guessed the World Champion, but congratulations to Ostkaka all the…

Unite Against Mechazod Rules!

This week’s Tavern Brawl is the absolute best ever. It’s the first Co-Op two player experience they’ve ever done, and it was executed brilliantly. How is this possible, might you ask? Well, then stop reading this right now and go try it out. Bring a real friend with you, and it’s an incredible experience. My…
