    Nah Golden Lightfang with Yogg surprisingly

    honestly it's legitimately impossible once you get to a certain MMR level because jesus christ no one plays stupid anymore. the entire cheevo relies on other people playing poorly and capitalizing on their mistakes along with a dash of luck, highrolling, and RNG. thus BG MMR resets are the best time to go for it because you legit get like 5/8 people who are either AFK or just already ghosts

    The new meta in the low ranks is just to level aggressively. Without buddies you aren't really punished for it, so whoever gets to 6 first while having more than 15 health, wins.

    All my opponents were Playing Stupid and legit staying on Tier 1 for... like, ever. So I'd have to do dumb shit like stay on Tier 1 with them because otherwise oops, they'd have 2 minions to my one and THERE GOES MY SPICY PRETZ

    But assuming normal play without cheevo chasing yeah, greedy leveling can work pretty well. It depends though, like I probably wouldn't zoom right the heck up to Tier 6, but I'd probably use my 8-gold turn to tier up instead of buying minions if my board/health were good enough. Or tiering up to 5 shortly after 4 if, again, my board/health are good enough. Tiering up to 6 is when I've exhausted triple opportunities to fish for That One 6 Drop I Need and I just go "fuck it" and bite the bullet, yknow. ....Or if I'm just way, way, way way way ahead.

    I might have asked this before but I never got a good answer - why does Malfurion have abs on his abs in Hearthstone but he's a plump little dumpling man in WarCraft 3?

    No surprises in the VS Data Reaper Report this week. A general continuation of the trends of last week. There's some noise about a Curse of Agony warlock, but it doesn't look generally ladder competitive.

    I don't see how DH doesn't get nerfed soon. I was a bit surprised they didn't nerf anything in the patch this week since frequent patching is a hassle for a mobile game.

    I’ve been having a ton of fun climbing with wildfire naga mage.

    It’s super fun to go off turn 5-6, because neither of us know exactly what’s about to happen, only that I’m about to take all 75 seconds of my turn to draw half my deck, clear their entire board, while also setting up a full board myself.

    Naga are largely too good, as is tradition for new tribes in this game I guess. Though if they weren't, it'd just be Revenge of the Murlocs again anyway. We're rapidly approaching a point where the growth potential of tribes in battlegrounds just needs a pretty thorough revamp imo.

    one thing that always baffled me about battlegrounds was why there was only one guy who had like "I have specific rules for what I target" and he's at tier 6 where no one has time for him

    Also yeah between uhhhhhhh *checks notes* Bigs™, Divine Shields, Windfury, Auto-Board Buffing, Better Tarecgosa, Free Minions (seriously, the Tier 6 Spellcraft Discover Naga with the Naga that auto-casts Spellcrafts at the end of turn like christ my hand was so full I couldn't even play anything out lmfao), and like the ability to just buff whatever the fuck unit you want with said specific buffs...

    Nagas just have too much going on there. They're just fucking busted. They're Mechs+Quillboars+Elementals combined, basically?? And they don't need anything like Rivendare+whatever to really get scaling, like Beasts or Mechs or whatever. They've got strong game all game, early mid and late.

    Also you can play Spellcrafts on non-Nagas like the fuck were they thinking lmfao. Sure yeah lemme just slap Divine Shield, Windfury, and Big™ onto my goddamn Foe Reaper/Hydra, sure.

    Buddies did have one thing going for them, and that was some actual diversity for (formerly) Trashcan Heroes. But they were so problematic across the board and so, so wildly unbalanced and caused so many problems that ultimately I am glad they were removed.

    Idk man, maybe add some of the buddies back into the shit Heroes?? They were actually viable for a time, yknow, and that diversity was fun. Maybe not all Heroes should have buddies, but those Garbagefire Tier ones? Sure, why not, that's an experiment worth trying. Cause now it's just like you see Lich Baz'hial and you just wanna fuckin throw up

    I feel like if I get offered a trash hero I'm bottom 8 for sure and if I get a good hero I'm top 4 easily (and Azshara is usually an autowin)

    They should maybe look at.... balancing BGs

    Getting a lame hero that is likely to lose is part of the intended experience
    They want you to buy their pass for four character choices, after all

    fortykimerahkeesh2000
  • GrobianGrobian What's on sale? Pliers!Registered User regular
    Azshara isn't even that op, imo. The main loss of buddies is that there is currently no punish for powerleveling. All heroes that can powerlevel are busted. Mainly because Tidemistress is op and you want to get there asap.

    Tidemistress needs a nerf. Maybe some lower tier Naga, but not much.

    Some other tribes need buffs, mostly Dragon/Beast/Demon, I think. Murlocs and Elementals are fine, Quills can work or enable Menagerie. Mechs might be ok again with Naga nerfed. Dragon and Beast need better early and midgame. Demon is just rough all around. Maybe unnerf the Avenge guy or sth.

    It looks like the "buff a magnetic minion in the shop with Spellcrafts then attach it to one of yours" trick works for literally everything but Windfury. Even Divine Shield works, just not Windfury. It's so weird that just that one aspect doesn't carry over.
