Chinese-Only Golden Card Back

An exclusive card back has been announced that will be available only to high-ranking tournament winners in China. This appears to be the "Golden Celebration" card back we previously datamined, and is now the second exclusive tournament card back added to Hearthstone after Dalaran Flame.



Reddit user Falkner80 posted a translation of the details:

This golden cardback is designed for the contestants of Hearthstone Chinese Open Tournament.
Only the contestants who get to top 128 of an area tournament can get this cardback.
While there will be eight area tournaments in China, this cardback will have a max number of 1024.
