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…

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…

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…

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…

Blizzcon Predictions

As you may have gleaned from my Twitter, or lack of an explosive post about it–I did not hit Legend last month. The furthest I made it was Rank 1 and 2 stars, which is still much further than I’d been before. But I somewhat underestimated what a grind it can be from Rank 5…

BlizzPro Weekly

In case you hadn’t heard elsewhere, my good friend and Lords of the Storm host Gizmozord and I are on the BlizzPro Weekly show now. I just thought I’d point this out here, and also invite you to check this week’s episode out–specifically, I cover Hearthstone near the very end. There’s truly nothing like giving…

#MultiToLegend update: Rank 2 obtained!

Just a quick update on this whole Multi to Legend business. I’d been yo-yoing between Ranks 4 and 6 for some time, but last night for some reason I just hit the right spot with Aggro Druid. I went from Rank 4 to Rank 2! I then dropped a couple stars before going to bed,…

Ding Dong, the Warsong Commander is Dead!

Today, Blizzard announced that the Warsong Commander is finally receiving the much-demanded nerf it deserves!  This kills the Patron Warrior archetype almost entirely, and good riddance. It’s plagued both the ladder and tournament scene for far too long, in my opinion.  Here’s the link where they talk about their philosophy behind such a nerf: http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/en/forum/topic/19288409377…
