January has finally arrived and with it the Jade Lotus takes a back seat to the Grimy Goons. So gather your minions, team up, and take down the opposition. Just make sure to reach Rank 20 by the time February rolls around to prove that you deserve your own corner of the streets to rule over.
Need something to play? Here's a few in depth deck guides to get you started this month. Expect many more to roll out over the next 27 days.
Hearthstone® January 2017 Ranked Play Season – Grimestreet’s Back!
The January Ranked Play Season is now live—and we’re unveiling a new card back you can add to your collection!
Calling all Goons! The streets of Gadgetzan are up for grabs, and we're gonna ring in the new year right by carving out some turf for the family. Add the Grimy Goons card back—it’s a nice little chunk of Grimestreet—to your collection by playing Hearthstone during the month of January.
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 Grimy Goons card back to your collection by hitting Rank 20 in either Standard or Wild Ranked Play modes. You’ll receive the Grimy Goons card back at the end of January’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.
Everybody! Get out there and prove that Grimestreet’s back in January’s Ranked Play Season, alright?
