    It continues to astound me how they decide what Heroes should have how much armor

    Like if we view 0 armor as being "They don't need any cause they're already p strong" why the fuck is Scabbs on that tier

    I guess since I don't really play BGs for real, I never realized how much smaller the Murloc pool was than the other tribes (12 minions vs 15+ for all the others).

    Maybe Scabbs was good before buddies? I honestly can't remember but his buddy is generally pretty bad unless you luck your way into just the right opponents. I imagine his stonks go up in a world without buddies.

    It's absurd watching Twitch streamers face DHs with Drek'thars on turn 3-5 damn near every game, and then playing the deck and rarely getting to do that. Two different games.

    tbh both the buddy stealer buddies (Tess and Scabbs) had very high variance in the effectiveness of their buddy, but the floor being an extra 2 gold a turn wasn't nothing to sneeze at and i think y'all were too down on them in buddygadon meta

    Apparently doing the new mercenaries content softlocks your client and persists even if you force close.

    PSA: there's a bug that you can use spellcraft buffs on attachable mechs in the tavern (module, replicating menace) and then buy and attach them which makes the spellcraft permanent.

    I don't know if they can hotfix this, it's mainly a problem with windfury.


    Otherwise naga feel fun for now. It's nice to have a bunch of buffs every turn and no need to save them for later. You still lose to poison and I haven't been able to get huge stats like other comps, but I have only played a couple games.

    Eh he's pretty hit or miss. If you face heroes like Tickatus it's jackpot time, but he can also brick hard with a lot of situational buddies like Rag or Flurgl (i.e., when you're not running Murlocs). And of course some buddies do absolutely nothing (Tavish).

    Double post, but it is a different topic:
    https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/hearthstone/t/developer-insights-battlegrounds-balance/87311
    The top 50% of players have reached 5700 mmr
    The top 25% of players have reached 6500 mmr
    The top 10% of players have reached 7000 mmr
    Congratulations to the top 1% of players who have reached 8300 mmr
    Note that this only counts players who have played at least 5 games in the last 20 days.

    This puts me in the top 1%, which I hadn't expected. I think hsreplay has the top 1% of their users well above 10k.

    There is also a list of the 10 best heroes, which is definitely surprising.

    How do you know which mercs you haven't completed all 18 tasks on? Are you tracking in a spreadsheet or with an addon or something?

    It's weird to me that they allowed Spellcrafts to target tavern minions. I'm curious why they went with that decision (this perma-buff thing wouldn't have been a problem in that case, other than with some inefficient Jandice hero power cheese).

    I don't think they can make it not target minions

    They have the ability to tag spells as not able to target tavern minions (i.e., only your board), so I don't see why they wouldn't have done that with the Spellcrafts.

    Partially through a spreadsheet. I started with Legendaries in Red, and thourgh the old grind method got all the way to Guldan in the Blues. Once the new method came out, I'd grind through whatever came up every 2 days or so. I swear I should have about 10 left, unless i was just super efficient and didn't realize I got through all of them.

    I'm not saying it's impossible that your account is bugged in some way to not get any more tasks (this game has seen plenty), but it does seem more likely that you just completed them all.

    Out of curiosity, what happens when you get a Mysterious Stranger now?

  • YiliasYilias Registered User regular
    2022-04-08: Fixed a bug where the game would crash if you got a Mysterious Stranger encounter after already completing all Tasks for all Mercenaries you own. Now, if there are not enough visitors with available Tasks to fill the three options, it will select random Mercenaries to fill those slots. You will then be able to select a Mercenary as normal and, if that Mercenary does not have any Tasks to offer, you will get Coins for that Mercenary.

    OK, Naga seem ridiculous with Queen Azshara. Easiest 1st place that I’ve had in a while. My last five rounds I was doing 30+ damage every round to the other hero. My Avenge-for-spellcraft Naga was just chilling at the right side of my board, never triggering.

    Remember, safety is everyone's concern. We have gone five days without a workplace death.

    The Nellie bug is so fucking annoying. Play Nellie and roll the dice on whether or not your game crashes.

    I thought they fixed it. Nope.

    Did you check the framerate settings in the options? they've added it but it's defaulted to medium. Settting it to high really sped things up for me.
