Golden Hearthstone Card Back

You may recall a couple of weeks ago when we datamined three new card backs from a small Hearthstone patch, that there was a card back named Golden Celebration. We believe we know which card back this is now, thanks to the Chinese Hearthstone website.

The official Hearthstone website in China published an image earlier today of a gold card back alongside a post explaining that it would be a reward for players participating and ranking highly in some Chinese Hearthstone tournaments. It appears to be a reward for:

  • Placing in the Top 128 in the Hearthstone Golden Open.
  • Placing in the Top 128 of one of eight Local Qualifiers.

The method of distribution is inline with the "License Detected" activation line from the patch datamining, as it is a flag that gets credited to their account.

It looks like this is a China-only cardback, and it should be considered as such until Blizzard makes an announcement saying otherwise. This is the second card back which is not obtainable by in-game methods, the first being the TeSPA, "Dalaran Flame" Card Back.
