Madness at the Darkmoon Faire is Hearthstone's next expansion

Round and round they go, where they'll stop, nobody knows!

According to Pat Nagle, the Duel lead designer, when the mode is officially launched, players will always face rivals who are on the same stage of the journey as you. You will then need to build a basic deck of 15 cards.

When you start a Duels run, you'll choose a Hero, a Hero Power, and starting Treasure. These cards can be anything from the current legal pool for the mode, but instead of the usual limit of one copy of each legendary and two copies of each card of other rarities, Duels only allows one copy of each card, regardless of rarity. With each win, players can choose between different options to add cards to their decks, and - as anyone who has played the Solo Adventures would expect - powerful treasures will also be a fixture of the mode, allowing players to make truly over-the-top plays. And in terms of the cards players can use, Season 1 will include the Basic and Classic sets, as well as Scholomance Academy, Curse of Naxxramas and One Night in Karazhan. A public beta will start November 12, and season one is meant to start on November 17.

Prior to its release with the new expansion, Hearthstone Duels will be available in Early Access. Yogg-Saron, N'Zoth, Y'Shaarj and the best boy of them all C'Thun are back to wreak havoc on the minds of puny mortals as they party and celebrate at the already weird Darkmoon Faire. The new Corrupt keyword, also has thematic ties to the tentacled beings of mysterious origin. If they dare, players can also harness Old Gods Artifacts - powerful spells inspired by the designs of the most dreaded Legendary minions from Whispers of the Old Gods. Featuring 135 brand new cards to add to our arsenals, the new content's storyline features the Old Gods taking over the local fair and wreaking havoc and corruption upon the people of Azeroth.

Trump Posts '60 Minutes' Interview After Complaining Anchor Was Biased
CBS News in a statement called the White House's decision " unprecedented " but said the interview would air Sunday, as planned. Mr Trump responds: "It's not attack, it's defence".

Corrupt cards upgrade in your hand after you play a higher cost card. Early access is available today, so long as you own the Madness at the Darkmoon Faire Mega Bundle. It contains 50 levels as well as 10 new hero skins and more loot like card packs and card backs.

Thus, I'm genuinely pleased to see the Hearthstone team go back to one of the earlier themes of the game, The Old Guys, and insert them in a weird and wonderful setting as the next expansion to hit the game is Madness at Darkmoon Faire! Daily quests are also being expanded into the Hearthstone Battlegrounds game mode and the newly announced game mode, Duels.

Players will be able to view their progress through all of these systems via the new profile page, which will track lifetime stats across a player's account, including ranks, ratings, and wins. Let's run through these.
