126 - Velen's Chosen: WickedGood Ladder & Antonidas Lore
This week WickedGood joins the cast to talk about a new HOT Druid list in the Tempo Variant! We’ve going to chat about the Tavern Brawl and a long discussion on the new ladder system coming in March!
Tom60229 wins the HCT World Championship.
- This week's Brawl: Nefarian Rises
First up we have MACKENSEIZE and her “Big” Druid deck. Mixing some great strategy with newer cards, along with some masterful navigating, has led to this iteration being the highest ranked Druid deck on the North American ladder: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1028427-mackenseizes-big-druid
Next up, we have 营地丨幽兰戴尔丶 . Sporting one of the best winrates on China’s ladder, this build of Warrior has achieved an impressive 64% winrate: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1028426-s-control-warrior-64-winrate
Lastly, we have a newer take on an old favorite. . . Miracle Rogue! Aiversons took this version of Rogue and piloted it to high legend with an outstanding 74%(!) winrate on the EU ladder: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1028425-aiversonss-miracle-rogue-74-winrate
- Ladder Changes!!!!! Coming the beginning of March season!!!! Discuss
- You will now only fall 4 ranks from where you ended the previous month
- This is from your final rank, not the highest you reached
- Ranked chests will still reward you for the highest achieved rank.
- You also keep all your stars!!!
- Don’t worry, win streaks are not going away, nor are ranked floors or chest rewards.
- All ranks now have 5 stars to the next rank.
- You only have to win 5 ranked games to get your monthly card back.
- There is a new UI that will tell you how many games you have to win till you get your card back.
NOTES: aka what Blizzard DIDN’T say.
Winstreaks still apply to Rank 5
Season Rewards are unchanged and are applied to highest Rank achieved
The only exception to this is the card back reward
Changes will apply the “4-rank-back-rollback” in March based on the rank achieved during February.
