Hearthstone’s Grand Tournament

GrandTourney1In what looks to be a battle lifted straight from World of Warcraft’s Patch 3.2: Call of the Crusade, Blizzard gives us Hearthstone’s next expansion: The Grand Tournament!

When the Lich King and his undead Scourge threatened the world, the Argent Crusade called upon Azeroth’s mightiest heroes to prove their mettle in a magnificent tournament. Knights of all races flocked to Northrend, vying for glory in epic battles against fearsome monsters. Though the Lich King’s evil has been vanquished, the Grand Tournament continues… the competitive atmosphere’s just a bit more playful than it used to be.

And why shouldn’t the show go on? Would-be champions are arriving in droves from all over the world, hankering to prove their worth and claim the honor of flying their colors in the name of victory!

Who will be the victor of The Grand Tournament? You and your friends, of course!

I couldn’t be more excited!  We’re not just talking about something as simple as just another expansion in Hearthstone’s already amazing line-up; we’re looking at the Trial of the Crusader.  Do you realize where that’s held?  Northrend!  And do you realize which World of Warcraft expansion that was?  Wrath of the Lich King!  And do you realize what class that signifies will make its debut?  THE DEATH KNIGHT!

Initiate Fan-Girl Squealing!!! Like, OH my total GAWD!  FINALLY!  My Hearthstone life is complete.  To be fair, it hasn’t actually been officially stated (yet) that the Death Knight will make its debut apart from seeing that brief animation in the Grand Tournament’s official cinematic, but come on!  It’s happening!  Whether or not that means the Death Knight will be featured in a bodacious new card or (oh please, oh please, oh please) be a new Hero to us, remains to be seen.  It better freaking be the latter though.  I would just keel over and die, if it wasn’t.  Besides, Hearthstone is due for a new Hero Class and this expansion couldn’t BE more of an appropriate time to debut one.

Stoked beyond words either way.  I just hope Blizzard takes me BEYOND, beyond words and makes my wish come true.  All I want for Christmas is a Death Knight class!  Make it so!


Seriously, make it SO!GrandTourney2
