Hearthstone’s August Ranked Play Season Offers a Lemony Fresh Card Back

One of the oldest pieces of advice is “when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.” And while that can perhaps be more difficult when it comes to the lemons of online multiplayer losses on account of all the salt, the new Hearthstone August ranked season is taking that advice to heart in a fresh and crisp new card back.

The prerequisite for getting the Lemonade card back you see above is pretty simple. All you’ve got to do is win five games in any Rank in either Standard or Wild formats and Hearthstone will pour your card decks a refreshing glass of Lemonade at the end of the August season.

This new card back will be a guaranteed reward on top of the usual Ranked Play reward chests players unlock, which are based on the highest rank earned over the length of a season. Chests include other items like seasonal card backs, Arcane Dust, and golden cards.

In other Hearthstone news, the game continues to ramp up excitement for its upcoming Boomsday Project expansion with a number of pre-release events, including livestreams, pre-release parties and Fireside Brawls over the weekend of August 4-5. All of the details for those can be found here.

Our Thoughts

We adore the sentiment of the Lemonade card back, and while the requirements to unlock it aren’t what one would call taxing, the whole thing does strike as a nice bit of sunshine-y fun to what is perhaps the more serious, cloudy experience of Ranked play.
