We round up all of today's new Kobolds & Catacombs information.

Blizzcon 2017 is very close. The opening ceremony starts in about 4 hours from now. Regardless of whether you own a virtual ticket or not, you will be able to watch it live online. However, if for some reason you can't tune into it live and you'd rather read a written live recap, or you missed it and want to catch up, don't worry, we've got you covered.

Once the Opening Ceremony goes live, you'll find any interesting news, pictures and videos right here. We'll focus on the Hearthstone part of the ceremony, but we'll briefly cover any other game too. 

Be sure to bookmark this page, because we're going live at 11 AM PDT (7 PM CET). You can watch it here.

We'll also cover two other Hearthstone panels - "What's Next?" and "Live Q&A". Remember that we expect a new expansion's announcement during the first panel. Sadly, those will be available only for the people with Virtual Tickets, but we'll still cover all the important stuff. We'll let you know before they go live on our site and social media, so stay tuned!

Expansion's Name Leaked?

With everything being silent around the release, we thought that we won't see any leaks this time around. However, a redditor /u/Stacksmchenry has just posted a potential leak of the name & logo of the upcoming Hearhstone expansion (Source).

Another redditor, /u/e-sprots has noticed that the domain koboldsandcatacombs.com has been registered a little over a month ago, which makes the whole thing very plausible.

That said, it's still only a leak, so nothing officially confirmed!

The Hearthstone's Blizzcon ticket reward - Marin the Fox - was just revealed. We still don't know what his effect means, though. We'll update you with more info as soon as we learn that.
