Two days ago Blizzard released patch 3.0 for their online-TCG Hearthstone, in preparation for the upcoming addon ‘The Grand Tournament’. Now they also announced the release date for the addon and it’s only four days ahead: on August 24.
The Grand Tournament will include 132 new cards and a new game mechanic called ‘Jousting’. This is basically a new card effect, which is supposed to emphasize the ‘tournament’ factor of the addon. Each player has to flip one card, and the one whose card is better (meaning it costs more mana) gets bonuses depending on the card they used.
