Hearthstone® August 2015 Ranked Play Season – The Grand Tournament!

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


Saddle up, ready your lance, and meet your foes on the Ranked Play Ladder with the Tournament Grounds card back! You can only earn this card back by playing Hearthstone during the month of August.

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 Tournament Grounds card back to your collection by hitting Rank 20 in Ranked Play mode. You’ll receive the Tournament Grounds card back at the end of August’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 August 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.

As a note, this is the final month to obtain Hearthstone World Championship 2015 points.

Give a hearty huzzah and take your place in our seventeenth official Ranked Play Season, The Grand Tournament, running through the month of August!
