Rastakhan's Rumble is Probably the Next Hearthstone Expansion

In an epic "WHOOPS" moment moment over at PCGamer, it appears that an article about SCUM accidentally contained information about Hearthstone's next expansion. HOW that happened remains a mystery as you'll see below.

The next expansion is called Rastakhan's Rumble and is...or was...described by the writer thusly before the information was removed from an article about the new SCUM...er...dong slider. Why it was there in the first place remains unknown. Luckily for us it was screened by a wily Redditor.

Once every generation, Azeroth's Troll tribes come together to compete for the blessings of the Loa and the favor of King Rastakhan. The no-holds-barred battle forms the basis for Rastakhan's Rumble, the next Hearthstone expansion, which was just revealed today as part of the BlizzCon opening ceremony. Nine teams will take part in the latest iteration of this time-honored Troll-down, each led by a Legendary Troll Champion representing one of the Hearthstone classes. The Loa, ancient spirits worshipped by the Trolls, will also take part in the fighting as Legendary minions. Shirvallah the Tiger is the Paladin Loa, which costs a cool 25-Mana to cast. You can reduce that outlay by casting spells, but even so it seems like a restrictive price for an effect that's probably only going to be good in incredibly slow control decks.

Interestingly, Blizzard Korea seemingly leaked "Brawl of Rastakhan" a few days ago. The difference in the title is probably due to translation.

So there you have it. If you're interested in the discussion of the Hearthstone expansion...or if you want to know how to get an extra 2" on your dong slider, head to any of the links above.
