Hearthstone - Heroes of Warcraft news » January 2018 Ranked Play Season – Frostfire Ferocity
The January Ranked Play Season is now live—and we’re unveiling a new card back you can add to your collection!
The weather outside is frosty, but it’s warm and toasty inside the tavern! Beat the cold and stoke the fires of competition within by adding the Frostfire card back to your collection by playing Hearthstone during the month of January.
These card backs replace the art decorating the reverse side of your cards and are a great way to show off your Hearthstone accomplishments. Add the Frostfire card back to your collection by hitting Rank 20 in either Standard or Wild Ranked Play modes. You’ll receive the Frostfire card back at the end of January’s Ranked Play Season in your Ranked Play reward chest.
You earn Ranked Play reward chests based on your highest earned rank over the course of a Ranked Play season. Reward chests may contain seasonal card backs, Arcane Dust, and golden cards, and can be obtained by playing in either Standard or Wild Ranked Play modes. You’ll be awarded one chest per Ranked Play season based on your highest rank between the two modes.
Don’t forget—the further you move up the Ranked Play ladder, the more bonus stars you’ll receive next season. In Ranked Play, you’ll receive bonus stars based on your performance from the previous season—one bonus star per rank you attained. Please note that even if bonus stars from the previous season get you directly to Rank 20 or above, you still have to log in at least once each Ranked Season to qualify for the card back reward.
Run hot and stay cool in January’s Ranked Play Season, Frostfire Ferocity!
