Heartstone Esports in 2018 is going to be going through some changes, this news rolling straight off of the back of their recent expansion Kobolds & Catacombs…
Another expansion and another year almost done. Blizzard have filled the stocking to the brim for Hearthstone players and this time, no old oranges!
Over the course of the last year in Hearthstone there have been a number of additions to the game; Journey to Un’Goro, Knights of the frozen throne and Kobolds & catacombs. Kobolds & Catacombs is the latest expansion and has shifted the meta around nicely. Warlock is back with a tier 1 deck thanks to a few new demons.Players and content creators are generally welcoming this new format. The newly released Kobolds & Catacombs has added a lot of support cards with some welcome new mechanics. Some of these can literally throw a game into total chaos… fun right?
What new mechanics you ask? Rogues with secrets to hide and priests wielding weapons to name a few!

No doubt you agree, there are exciting times in store for the 2018 HCT (Hearthstone Championship Tournament). We can also expect another announcement from Blizzard in January regarding smaller areas receiving Tavern Hero Qualifiers. This is great as it will give all players a greater chance at tournament play.
Once the first season is over the next expansion and the new Hearthstone year will start.
Expect the new Hearthstone year to say goodbye to Gadgetzan and Old Gods as they head to Wild format. That’s right, no more Jade infestations! We will also be sailing under a new banner; we have had Mammoth and Kraken so far, what’s next? Dragon?
