Trying Out Gwent? Check out Gwentify!

Hey everyone, I try to keep the sites I run pretty separate and on topic, but I figured a lot of Hearthstone players might be checking out Gwent for the first time. Witcher 3 is one of my favorite games of all time, and I really loved Gwent so I jumped on the opportunity to start a website following the stand alone game once the announcement was made. The site has come a long way since then, and I just got done making a bunch of new updates.

Here’s what Gwentify has to offer:

  • Gwent Card Database
  • Gwent Deck Database
  • Gwent Deck Builder
  • Article Builder
  • Gwent Collection Manager
    • You can keep track of your collection, as well as see which cards you are missing from any deck you are browsing. This is something I plan to bring to Hearthstone Top Decks soon!
  • Gwent Legendary Card Helper
    • This one is a big help to newer players. In Gwent, your guaranteed Rare, Epic, or Legendary card is given to you as an option of three. This is great, as you can choose a card you don’t have or one that you really need. However, if you get a Legendary card choice and are a new player, you might not know which is best. Well, I paired up with the good people at Gwentlemen, to create a tool that allows you to input the cards and helps make a choice for you!

Basically, if you’re a fan of Hearthstone Top Decks, you’ll be a fan of Gwentify. I hope to see some of you over there! Now back to your regularly scheduled Hearthstone content!

Hearthstone Top Decks Discord!

Hey everyone, I’ve created a Discord for Hearthstone Top Decks. I hope it can become a fun environment for people to discuss Hearthstone, as well as a way for people to give feedback on the site.

I’m still a bit new with Discord, so if you know of ways to improve it, please feel free to comment here or talk to me on the Discord server!

You can check it out here: Hearthstone Top Decks Discord

Get a Fight Promoter Card for Free for Logging in on May 20th!

If you login on Saturday, May 20th, 2017 you will receive a free Fight Promoter card!

Update

Ben Brode gave more explanation on why this is happening:

Lots of folks in this thread wondering: “Why? Are they testing something?”

Honestly we just think it’s fun to do surprising things. We like the feel of our Winter’s Veil event, our “Hearthstone New Years” event, and the (now-redundant) Friendly Feud, and we’ve been ramping up our events team to do even more. We have some stuff planned that I think will be pretty hot. Keeping Hearthstone spicy is important… and giving out a free card seemed like something easy we could do as a fun one-off. We have some bigger (and smaller) events planned… we’re just getting warmed up!
Enjoy the free card! (or the dust!)

Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

No catch, just a free card–so don’t miss out.

We’ll see you in the tavern!

New Features Coming to Hearthstone – Friendly Quest Completion and Deck Importing!

Hearthstone has an update coming soon, and two new features will be the ability to complete Quests by playing with friends and being able to import decks!

Update

I’m curious if this update is when they’ll add win-tracking past 500, since that’s a change I’ve been looking forward to.
The team is currently working on that. It may be available as soon as the next update. – CM_Daxxarri

Original Post

Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!


Patch8.2_Inblog_HS_LW_500x378.png

Friends Forever

When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.

Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!

There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.

Sharing is Caring

You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

Patch8.2_Inblog_HS_Lightbox_LW_1200x199.png

Here’s how it works:

If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:

See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.

Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!

Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

Patch8.2_Inblog02_HS_LW_500x285.png

Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.


The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think!

Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl Coming This Week!

Time to dust off your Curse of Naxxramas adventure and bring out the Goblins vs. Gnomes cards because Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl is coming this week!

Ready to test yourself against Hearthstone’s best in the fiercest competitive Tavern Brawl experience available? If you think you’re up to the challenge, get your deck ready and prepare for an expedition into the wilds of Hearthstone, because the first ever Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl begins this week!


Heroic Brawls

Heroic Brawls test even Hearthstone’s most experienced players as they vie for glory and in-game rewards! In the upcoming brawl, challengers will create a Wild deck using any cards from their existing collection and lock it in before their first Heroic Brawl match. No changes can be made to a Heroic Brawl deck once it’s locked in, so be sure to test your creations before you finalize your deck!

Once you’ve locked in your Wild deck, you’ll face off against fellow Heroic Brawlers on your quest for victory. Just like in the Arena, you want to shoot for 12 wins to get the best rewards—but if you suffer three losses, you’re out!

HeroicBrawl_UNG_HS_Lightbox_LW_500x271.jpg

For Hearthstone’s best brawlers, 50 Journey to Un’Goro card packs, a heap of Gold, piles of Arcane Dust, and three golden Legendaries are waiting at the end of the 12-win road. The more games you win, the better the rewards—but the opposite is also true, so be sure you’re ready for the challenge. Are you ready to take on the best and brightest of competitive Hearthstone?

Heroic Brawl is not for the faint of heart, and is a unique experience meant for extremely competitive and experienced Hearthstone players.

Heroic Brawl lasts for only one normal Tavern Brawl week and has an entry fee of $9.99 USD or 1000 gold. You can participate in Heroic Brawl for a limited amount of completed runs. As mentioned above, Heroic Brawl rewards scale depending on how many wins you get, so be sure to do your best each run!

Watch the Action

Not quite ready to step into the ring? If prior Heroic Brawls are any indication, your favorite pro players and streamers will be joining the Heroic Brawl and you can watch them battle it out live on stream. The decks they’ll be playing during the Wild Heroic Brawl are sure to be impressive, so be sure to catch the action on Twitch.tv!

Our normal Tavern Brawl schedule will resume after the conclusion of the Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl week.

Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl arrives this week, so prepare your Wild decks now!
