Hearthstone’s December 2018 Ranked Play Season Begins Today

Hearthstone’s December 2018 Ranked Play Season Begins Today

Starting today, the new Ranked Play season begins in Hearthstone and you can earn a Frostwolf card back by winning a few games.

It’s that time again. Today, Hearthstone‘s new Ranked Play season begins bringing a new card back to Blizzard Entertainment’s popular card game.

This time around, the Frostwolf card back will be making its way to Hearthstone. Inspired by the Frostwolf clan from the popular Warcraft series, you can add the card back to your collection by winning five games of Standard or Wild Ranked Play. However, you won’t receive it immediately. You get the Frostwolf card back at the end of the season in the Ranked Play reward chest. Along with the new card back, you may earn Arcane Dust and golden cards depending on how high your rank in either Ranked Play modes.

For those new to Hearthstone Ranked Play, depending on how your rank on the Ranked Play ladder after the season ends will determine where you will start the next season. When the season does inevitably end, you’ll reset four ranks below the rank you ended with.

The new Ranked Play season is not the only new feature coming to Hearthstone. Revealed at this year’s BlizzCon, you’ll be able to pick up new cards from the game’s new expansion, Rastakhan’s Rumble, on December 4. Based on King Rastakhan and his tribe of Zandalari Trolls, the expansion brings a new tabletop, 135 brand new cards, and the Overkill keyword to the game.

You can pre-purchase Rastakhan’s Rumble now for $49.99 which includes 50 card backs from the new expansion, new Shaman Hero King Rastakhan, and the Ready to Rumble! card back. For those who are on a budget, you can pre-purchase the Rastakhan’s Rumble Challenger’s Bundle for $19.99; this pack includes 17 packs and the new card back.

You can begin playing Hearthstone and start climbing that Ranked Play ladder right now on PC and mobile devices.
