The January 2019 Ranked Play Season is now live—and we’re unveiling a new card back you can add to your collection!
Shut the door, it’s cold one out there! Warm those frozen boots by the fire, grab a cup of hot cocoa, and snuggle up under your favorite blanket with some Hearthstone during the month of January. This month is a perfect time to sleep in, take a load off, and work on obtaining the Chillin’ card back!
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 Chillin’ card back to your collection by winning 5 games at any Rank in either Standard or Wild Ranked Play modes. You’ll receive your new 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 of a head start you’ll get on climbing the ladder the following month. After the Ranked Play season ends, you’ll be reset four Ranks below the highest Rank you achieved the previous season once the new season begins. If you manage to reach Legend, you’ll be reset to Rank 4.
Placing in the Top 100 for your region’s Wild ladder during the month of January will qualify you to participate in playoffs for the Wild Open! Learn more about the 2019 Wild Open here.
Don’t hit that snooze button, January’s Ranked Play Season, Just Chillin’, is here! Now . . . five more minutes of sleep . . . zzz.
