Hearthstone June 2018 Ranked Play Season Has Begun

A new Ranked Play Season has begun in Blizzard's popular card game Hearthstone bringing a new card back inspired by Malygos.

After every month, Hearthstone‘s ranked modes — which include both Standard and Wild game formats — reset giving players a chance to grind and climb that ladder. With June arriving, a new Ranked Play Season has commenced in Blizzard’s popular virtual card game.

This month’s featured card back is known as “Back in Blue” and is inspired by the Aspect of the Blue Dragonflight, Malygos. Just like the previous season’s card back, you’ll be able to add it to your collection by winning five games in any Ranked Play modes.

After the season is over, you’ll receive Ranked Play reward chests which may include the aforementioned card back, Arcane Dust, and golden cards. If you play both Standard and Wild Ranked Play, the chest you earn will be based on the highest rank between the two formats.

Your progress in this season will also help you with your ladder position in next month’s season; when the new season begins next month, your position on the ladder will reset four ranks below the highest rank you earned in the previous season. For example, if you are in rank 10, you’ll be reset to rank 14.
