It's going to be a little different this time, because now, it will be all of GAF on the chopping block!

The amount of half-scores Dahbomb gives, it's like he's deathly afraid of being put on blast for any commitment, lol

Got my 1st 8 wins in arena with a mediocre warlock deck. I was surprised I could beat my previous record with this bad deck. Went 8-1 and ended up with 8-3, very happy with the result, got 220 g .

Nah the .5's wouldn't make much of a difference in terms of blast in most of those cases. I was trying to rate the cards as accurately as possible because there's a big difference between a 3 and a 4. There is also a big range within 3's as statistically it should be the common number.

Finja was the one where it made the most difference between 3.5 and 4 so I caved into 4 because I wanted that bloodbath.

It's not competitive in this meta. Way too slow.

Crafting golden Rag/Syl, then getting dust bonus for them in April, then actually DEing them nets you a 1600 dust profit, right?

Even if you have reg Rag/Sylv already.

Someone tell me if I'm wrong.

Don't nothing in that situation also nets you a 1600 dust profit and doesn't require you to float 3200 dust for a few months.

...how? I don't have golden Rag/Syl already.

Or are you saying that Normal Rag/Syl will grant us 1600 dust each in the bonus dust amount awarded when the expansion launches....?

Edit- NM I'm a dummy and just figured it out. Thanks!
Basically, floating the extra dust just gets you a golden to use for the next two months. Hah

unless you are really sure, you shouldn't disenchant cards, specially with the rotation coming up and making standard a weird experimentation field. You never know when a weird card will be used...

may be try to get the rest of the dust from pack, you still have about a month to get the dust, the rotation should be hitting next expansion and it is still somewhat far away

Given the interviews Blizzard has been giving lately, I would guess Eric Dodds moved to helm a new mobile project around this time last year.

this isn't a new issue, I have been saying HS is an extremely stingy game since I started, it is really difficult to get things without money and throwing money at it isn't the best thing for some people, like me.

That was the worry when I heard they are not doing more adventures and that they are instead releasing even more cards in even more expansions

Blizzard can't win if they are already losing. The idea of more cards is nice for the meta, bad for the wallet, and the wallet is an issue in HS since very long ago

I'm expecting a daily dust or gold or pack/half pack/part pack, not something big and not something really meaningful

I'm not really convinced that Kor'kron is distorting the same way that some of these other choices are.

The reaction to this announcement has actually been pretty positive overall (unless you're a dumbass and look at like the Blizzard forums or something.)

Yeah I have seen mostly positive news towards the news as a whole.

The standard cards being moved to Wild has been received well (usually much better than nerfs). More cards per year with single player stuff thrown in. The new hero portrait. And people are digging the Wild Heroic Brawl too.

The fact that you get dust refund even if you don't disenchant those cards was a very good choice by Blizzard in order to appease the fanbase.


Some people complain about everything, usually just to complain and those comments tend to get ignored, rightfully so.

Bringing Control Warrior (anti aggro tech), Reno Mage(anti aggro variant), Reno Warlock (combo variant) and Midrange Jade Shaman for tomorrow's tournament.

Only the Shaman deck has the PPP in it. This is what I know how to play and I believe in it. Hoping for the Warrior to win against some of the aggro out there.

It's not uncommon to not run Jaraxxus in renolock, particularly given how aggressive the meta is. There are a lot of good cards you can sub in but I personally always include it BECAUSE YOUR WORLD IS STILL DOOMED

Firebat on Value Town is annoyed that the rotations signal the complete death of combo and control with no aggro cards being included.

And there are a lot of worries about Jade never going away and make everything the strict rock/paper/scissors we're seeing now where control exists only to feed on the aggro decks that are feeding on jade decks.

Power Overwhelming is a combo card but it's also an aggro card. Two copies are in every zoo deck ever.

He's not wrong though PO is also played heavily in aggressive Warlock decks so it's a nerf to Zoo as well.

Also Jaraxxus is awesome at closing out games against control decks.

And nothing wrong with having Jaraxxus as your waifu. Could be much worse, he could love Wilfred Fizzlebang instead lol.

This is such a goofy complaint. A whole year of other cards (including tons of aggro staples in multiple classes) are rotating out at the exact same time and another 130 cards are getting added. It's impossible to draw any type of useful conclusion about the upcoming meta by just looking at the six HoF cards.

Leeroy was one I was a bit surprised about, but I think they left him in because he's usually not used without buff combos except to add a bit of a finisher to an aggro deck.

Like I don't think anyone would care about a Face Hunter deck just dropping Leeroy on Turn 6 right now.

I guess the concern would be Aggro Paladin for a 12 damage combo or something?

You can already look at Shaman though and see in mid range Shaman they aren't losing any cards even with the HoF ones.

So the new cards effectively start at having to be a power creep better than what's currently out.

there's still rogue for 14 from hand though that's losing conceal.
