Preparing for Naxxramas With Jotto

Jotto joins us today and he's got quite a bit to say with regards to preparing for the upcoming adventure, Curse of Naxxramas. Topics discussed during the video include: Saving Gold, Public Perception, Theorycrafting, Play Testing, and Basic overview of announced cards. It is worth noting that Jotto and other Hearthstone theorycrafters have been busy playing with the new cards on Cockatrice trying to develop strategies before the adventure is released which is why play testing is discussed in the video.

    I liked the tournament a lot, good idea to hire Artosis to help out the other (relatively) inexperienced casters. Unfortunate for Rdu with the drama, but it's better this happens in the first HearthStone tournament, so that subsequent tournaments will think about this issue!

    May I request that in the future that streams aren't embedded in the homepage but linked to instead? I cannot access streaming media while at work and therefore cannot access your homepage when there is an embedded stream. If this is just an issue for me and no one else you can happily disregard it :) (I will also make a post in site feedback as that may be the more appropriate spot for this)

    A bitter sweet tournament. The chat issue with RDU is really borderline, it did not happened once, instead many times. I hope the tournament teams take note of this and offer next time fresh accounts with all cards and without friends. This way the issue can be prevented.

    HELLO MOM! Well, fuck Blizzard. It's their fault that someone can cheat during a tournament. We are awaiting an bnet chat offline mode for years now!

    Is there any place where I can rematch the matches? Got timezones mixed up and missed some games.

    why not just use twitch?...

    makes so much more sense to use the untried newbie stream service ./facepalm

    Has the 3k cost been confirmed by anyone at Blizzard? Cuz  I don't recall anyone anywhere saying anything about actual costs. And if it's gonna be that price, then I can go back to spamming Arenas again since I'm sitting at about 4600 gold or so. Or heck just buying a ton of packs.

    According to the leaked info on that chinese site, its 5k for all wings.

    Not confirmed that I've heard. From what Jotto said in the video, it's just what he thought was a safe bet.

    I wouldn't splurge until the pricing is officially revealed, personally.

    [SPOILER]

    I want to see it too. The results are wonky. It shows Reynad in second place in Group A, yet the results show Reynad losing his second place match. So some error was made on the site.

    I looked again, about an hour ago, and they corrected the results on the site (Reynad did indeed finish second in group A). (I would have watched the matches, but I missed them live and cannot find the VOD).

    All the replays can be found here : http://www.viagame.com/games/159

    (don't pay too much attention to the titles as there is more than one match per video)

    Can't wait for the set Priest card looking really solid for it's cost. But I'm afraid Miracle Rogue still gonna be so dominant :(

    Excuse me,but i am quite new to card games,and would like to know: What is this "Cockatrice" ? I believe it have something to do with MtG? I already saw players commenting about it on the official forum,but never understood what they meant.

    #6 Kinak (Live Patch 5506)

    Cockatrice is a CCG emulator originally designed to play Magic: the Gathering online, but it can be used for a lot of magic-like games.

    It exists in a sort of nebulous legal territory, if you care about that sort of thing. The program itself is almost certainly legal, but the datasets to emulate certain games contain a lot of copyrighted material.

    So there's presumably a Hearthstone + Naxx dataset for people who want to play with the cards before they're released.

    Personally? I wouldn't bother with it. There's already a program on my computer to play Hearthstone for free. But I can see why people might use it to test upcoming stuff.
