    The leaderboard's results are cached, so if it doesn't update in real-time, that's why =)

    How do you make a plane based around horror even more terrifying? Ask this card to give everything tentacles.
    You're looking for a card from a horror-themed set. Mechanically, no tentacles, but that is certainly some interesting art. 

    A card that will make you scream, or will hand out candy, one or the other.
    There are several types of counters in MTG. One could consider this card an all-day event.

    It is supposed to be ending when the clock dings Nov 3 Eastern timezone. Someone does have to be around to click to make that happen though so there's a chance we might go over a few minutes or so.

    The shop rewards will be available for 1 week after the event, to give everyone enough time to buy anything they would like and still have candy for.

    When Whispers of the Old Gods hit, they did a bunch of thematic cards that were upgraded, evil versions of themselves. Dressing up is getting a new set of art for the same character.

    I think the clue works well only because there are not very many monkeys in Hearthstone, which really narrows the field down.

    The Lich King Didn't give up! A Preventable Spooky Setback With Silence

    This is definitely one of the trickier ones. 

    There's an effect in an older set that would be beneficial to use Silence on.

    Some might get spooked out by the art.

    I feel rattled to the bones thinking about it.

    There are plenty more holidays though! I'd consider this year's Halloween event a baseline of what is to come for future events =D

    I certainly don't think you are!

    Some of these clues can be tough. I was present when a few very casual Hearthstone players were trying to solve some of them and it was tough.

    I think in the future we'll need to go for some more obvious clues in addition to the more mind-teasers just to make sure everyone can pick up a nice chunk of candy.

    Congrats on second place on the leaderboard btw =D

    You are in the right realm with Rise of Shadows. You're missing another big word in the clue =)

    You're correct in that it isn't a card database thing. Think of the systems we have on the site.

    I'm so sorry! My fault that this wasn't triggering the achievement to reward candy. That issue has been resolved.

    We know Deviation Games was founded this year and according to their LinkedIn, they have at least 70 employees.

    Dave Anthony, CEO, did a lot of work on the Call of Duty franchise. Jon Burton, CIO, created the LEGO game franchise. I can't tell who else is on their payroll that came from Blizzard since a lot of people on their employee listing have private LinkedIn profiles, but I definitely wouldn't be surprised if there's at least a couple more over there.

    Max Ma is still on the team! (Lead on UI/UX) He joined earlyish in 2014. No one from the very beginning is there though iirc

    Edit: I don't know why I thought your comment had originally mentioned Dean Ayala, but he is still there too and joined around the same time Max did.

    There were some of you that were refresh spamming to earn your treats, but really, you should have been receiving tricks!

    An update has gone out that reduces the ability to do this somewhat - go browse the site naturally and engage in conversation or maybe find a deck a fellow community member has created and give it an upvote that it deserves.

    I won't go into exactly how it works for obvious reasons, but you definitely can't sit here and F5 anymore.

    We'll see how it goes for the rest of the day. It's really easy for us to tune the numbers on everything so if it isn't working, we'll scale it back a bit.

    Also, on Halloween everyone is going to get a bucket of candy, so look forward to that!

    No, though I would love to do something Old God themed down the line.

    There's always next Halloween :D

    Funny you ask. The deploy is building right now!

    As the event page says, avatar borders will be available later this week. FWIW, they will be 125 Candy a piece.

    Glad you're digging it! My goal with our site events is to make them better for each one, so it'll be exciting to see what the future brings :D
