Hearthstone InstagramHearthstone now has an official Instagram! Here are its first pictures, it's also uploaded a card back teaser which you can find here.
July Card BackWe thought July's ranked reward card back was the previously revealed Halfhill, but Blizzard has posted a blog that now says otherwise. Whirthun's latest post now announces Tanned Tinyfins, a beach themed card back as the reward for July. The community is pressing for an answer as to why there was a change or if this is simply a mistake. We'll keep you updated.
The July Ranked Play Season is now live—and we’re unveiling a new card back you can add to your collection!
Summer’s heating up, but don’t be a hothead! You can always keep cool with the Murlocs of Tinyfin beach! Kick back, relax, and add the tropical Tinyfin Beach card back to your collection by playing Hearthstone during the month of July.
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 Tinyfin Beach card back to your collection by hitting Rank 20 in either Standard or Wild Ranked Play modes. You’ll receive the Tinyfin Beach card back at the end of July’s Ranked Play Season in your Ranked Play reward chest.
You earn Ranked Play reward chests based on your highest earned rank over the course of a Ranked Play season. Reward chests may contain seasonal card backs, Arcane Dust, and golden cards, and can be obtained by playing in either Standard or Wild Ranked Play modes. You’ll be awarded one chest per Ranked Play season based on your highest rank between the two modes.
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.
Surf’s up in July’s Ranked Play Season, Tanned Tinyfins!
