December, 2016 is Hearthstone’s 33rd Ranked Play Season and this month will be rewarding the Jade Lotus Cardback.
Whomever able to reach Rank 20 in either Standard or Wild Ranked Play modes will earn the Jade Lotus cardback when the December 2016 Ranked Play Season ends.
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.
With your skill and dedication to the Jade Lotus, you will be a force to be reckoned with on the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan!
