Last Week in WoW: We fell for Blizzard's trap card edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. The past week or so has been one of unexpected announcements, to say the least. First, we heard about Hearthstone, the Warcraft-based online CCG, then we had the first patch notes and build for the patch 5.3 PTR, right before the first guild downed heroic Lei Shen. I am pretty sure Alex is clairvoyant now, because he picked the perfect week to go on vacation.

Downtime today is limited to rolling restarts at 7 a.m. PDT, but trust me, a lot of stuff went down this week and you'll want to read about it all. Our usual roundup awaits you below.
