    They couldn't make that product until Dibby got his SPM. IRL cheevo unlock.

    I played through the Faelin adventure and, man, it is setup really poorly for repeat playthroughs.

    Yes, which is doubly sad because if you want the cheevos it's minimum 3 runs and probably a lot more.

    Trying to ladder climb in a control meta is miserable. You get maybe 2-3 games in an hour, and so many matchups are just coinflips so it's insanely hard to get a streak.

    Made it to dad legend with the VS "meta breaker" big beast Renethal hunter deck. Animations are too fuckin' slow.
    You can now hold down the Spacebar to continuously open packs.
    Best patch in a while.

    You know what sucks? Giving a cheaper counterspell to ducking hunter

    At least they managed to avoid giving it to rogue this time, maybe that’s being saved for next year.

    I only played the one game, but new hero looks very very good. Like, if you have even two minions you wanna buy, then paying 5 gold is already a good deal and you also get some free other minions, which makes it insane at higher tavern tiers. And there are a lot of comps that cycle through minions (elementals, naga, quills, murlocs)

    The turn 12 prize reward that grabs the whole shop (mindflayer I think?) is good for the same reasons, wonder if that was the test for this hero power.

    In Wild, I hit Legend with Renethal Highlander Quest Priest, because fuck the meta I play what I want.

    After hitting Legend, I switched it to “fuck Big Priest Quest Priest.” Oh, that feeling of happiness I get when they try to res and see only hands, because Mr. Hands himself is on the bottom of my deck!

    The timing on this is weird. WotLK Classic is in late September, which would be a good tie in opportunity to add DKs, but I also don't think they'd add a class for the miniset when it would be easiest at rotation.

    Did they remove greasebot from battlegrounds? Cause I haven't seen one in either of my last mech runs (I didn't see one and nobody else had one, either.)

    If they did, thank god. End stage mechs were absolutely awful to play against in battlegrounds.

    Poor communication obviously, but they couldn't get it into the patch so I understand. And greasebot meta wasn't very fun, so it's good that they did it.

    New hero is p much as busted as I thought. I played him four times and only placed second once. And that was because my opponent went full poison scam against my jacked murlocs and I couldn't find the selfless while they did.


    Let's hope the planned balance patch does something good. Tier 6 needs some serious changes imo.

    HSReplay's analysis of Primordial Wave (pretty much matches my own, although I don't know that I would have rated it a 1) for Dibby:
    Primordial Wave

    Evolve and Devolve rolled into one for no extra cost. Normally when you merge a card like this, it’s more powerful than the sum of its parts. But this isn’t the case here, because the effects carry diminishing returns and usually aren’t powerful when played together.

    If you’re playing Tiny Toys or any cheap board flood, you always want the cheaper Evolve effect because you want to power spike as early as possible. If you’re ahead on board, then you might as well play a cheap evolve effect after value trading and get rid of the opponent’s threats completely. If you need to answer an opponent board and you’re behind, then the Evolve effect carries little to no value. If you do have a board and find yourself blocked by a taunt, you cannot Primordial Wave to transform the taunt and attack with your minions because they also get transformed.

    This card is very awkward and inefficient, to an extent that we don’t even think Evolve Shaman will play it.

    Score: 1

    If you don't have the time to gain 100+ gold the untill the expansion hits tomorrow, it's probably better to not login untill it hits so the rewards from the new month will be for the new expansion.

    This is about the extra cards you receive, not the packs.

    Oh, I see. I suppose that could be worthwhile if you're a pretty casual player. If you play enough to at least finish the rewards track, it's pretty easy to have the gold required to obtain the ~60 packs needed to get all the rares from the new set from packs alone.

    Yeah, I've got consistently gotten ~110 packs from the gold from finishing the rewards track and then some every expansion.

    Not necessarily, because Holy Mackerel procs off itself because good design. I've lost multiple times because a mech player gets several Holy Mackerels and they just endlessly alternate divine shields. You basically just have to have Leeroys and/or hope your idiot minions attack in exactly the right target order.

    The "hold space to open your packs" update is very handy for the start of the expansion. I've rested a weight on my space bar, and can now go do something else for a while.

    If only I could rest a weight on my space bar to "play Hearthstone" for me, too!

    I'd still prefer a real mass opening option, but I'll be doing the weighted space bar maneuver tonight myself. Huzzah!

    My best luck opening cards in quite a while, 4 legendaries in 53 packs plus the free legendary at the start of the Battle Pass makes 5 total. Plus I got the elusive "two legendaries in one pack" which I haven't had in a few years AND a pack that had three epics and two rares.

    Right now having success with Hunter's Wildseed deck. I'm sure there will be lots of good decks that come out of this expac.

    It's not related to the new expansion, but I just found out about the new Battlegrounds Ysera Chromawing strat and it's pretty funny. They redesigned Chromawing because it had balance issues. And now the new version makes Ysera broken.

    On hsreplay she's got a 50%+ first/second finish rate. Whoops!
