Blizzard has unveiled February's card back, and it's the Lunar card back for the Luminous Lunar New Year February season! We recently datamined strings referencing a Lunar New Year Event. Sadly the strings added were just copies of each hero's "Hello" emote, and there were no associated sound files, so we have yet to see if that was simply part of a test or if we'll be getting a true in-game event. The Lunar New Year is a common term for the Chinese New Year. Heroes of the Storm is also doing a Lunar Festival Event, and the Lunar Festival in WoW was the first such in-game celebration Blizzard has done for the Chinese New Year. What do you think we could expect from an in-game Hearthstone event for the Lunar New Year?

Hearthstone™ February 2015 Ranked Play Season – Luminous Lunar New Year!

The eleventh official Hearthstone Ranked Play Season is now live—and we’re unveiling a new card back you can add to your collection!


Celebrate a happy and prosperous Lunar New Year in Hearthstone! Find good fortune on the Ranked Play ladder and earn the festive Lunar card back! You can only earn this card back by playing Hearthstone during the month of February.

These card backs replace the art decorating the reverse side of your cards and are a great way to show off your Hearthstone accomplishments. Add the Lunar card back to your collection by hitting Rank 20 in Ranked Play mode. You’ll receive the Lunar card back at the end of February’s Ranked Play Season.

Don’t forget—the further you move up the Ranked Play ladder, the more bonus stars you’ll receive next season. In Ranked Play, you’ll receive bonus stars based on your performance from the previous season —one bonus star per rank you attained. Please note that even if bonus stars from the previous season get you directly to Rank 20 or above, you still have to log in at least once each Ranked Season to qualify for the card back reward.

The top 100 Legend players for the February Ranked Play season will also accrue points towards qualifying for the Hearthstone World Championship. For more information on how you can become the next Hearthstone World Champion, please visit our Hearthstone World Championship blog here.

A year of good fortune, happiness, and prosperity await you! Celebrate the Lunar New Year and put your Ranked Play skills to the test in our eleventh official Ranked Play Season, Luminous Lunar New Year, running through the month of February!
