Love your time as a Druid in Blizzard's card-battleground of Hearthstone? Well, even if you don't you're going to want to know what tricks they get in their deck with the upcoming Goblins vs. Gnomes.

Yet more spoilers from the world of legal paperwork as Blizzard Entertainment has trademarked something called "Eye of Azshara" in the mystical land of Benelux, which really isn't a zone in Azeroth, but in Europe instead.

Now in lore, Azshara was the highborne elven queen who sort of let Sargeras and the Burning Legion out of their crazy box. Surely then World of Warcraft is already gearing up for its next expansion?

Blizzard must be pretty used to combating bots and exploits by now, having spent the last ten or so years cleaning up the streets of World of Warcraft.

Now it's time to tidy up card battler Hearthstone, and the developer has kicked things off by banning "several thousand" accounts suspected of 'botting'; using third-party programmes to automate gameplay.
