Hearthstone dumps the Specialist format for the 2nd season of Grandmasters

In all honesty, I expected the first season of Hearthstone Grandmasters to be an unmitigated disaster. My fear was largely based on the league's use of the as then largely untested Specialist format, which involves players bringing a single deck to each match, plus two slightly tweaked variants. The obvious worry was that it would lead to stale, samey match-ups, and when the first week saw a slew of Warrior mirror marathons, that fear looked justified. Over the months that followed, interest picked up as the players learned to predict and counter-pick their opponents better, but the meta eventually settled into some variation of the three best decks—Bomb Warrior, Conjurer Mage and Lackey Rogue—played out rock, paper, scissors style.
