I have played extensively last couple weeks and the game is a pure roller coaster - no matter 5 or 10k, if you fail to get fast triple during 8-9g turns you will barely survive the damage spikes from the ppl that get it.
Too bad Lord Barov, Mukla, Deathwing, Sindragosa, George The Fallen, Tess, Flurgal, Clockwerk aren`t available in this meta.
Today somehow pulled a win with Pirates against Elementals (truth be said, key was me finding some Amalgadons and teching in Maexxna).
To be fair, the real offender here is (sadly) Nomi. Rag is very strong, but in the end, elemental shenanigans consist mostly on Nomi turning each and every elemental you play into Godzilla. Rag pales in comparison.
I don't like the direction battelgrounds is going.
The buffs to heroes in the new balance patch shows they want to put more focus on your hero selection and it sucks. I enjoyed battlegrounds because everyone was on an equal footing to begin with - but early game powerhouses like millhouse suck a lot early game fun away when you have guaranteed losses.
The large variance in damage taken from a loss is anti-fun, they need to raise the health pool drastically or change how damage is calculated.
Once you're below 15 hp you are unable to take the risks to get first place, as you have no resource to gamble with.
The fact they have returned lightfang to it's original form is really worrying - the game mode is moving in the same power-creep direction :/
With the last patch elise became incredibly powerful at six coin sell a minion and upgrade tier use the map get 3 tier minion rest of the game you will be able to upgrade tier one turn early and get rewarded.
Most tribes don't have decent late game, they choke after reaching tier 6 and they have to transition to divine shield/poison spam because it's impossible to catch up to snowballing elemental/murlocs and decent menagerie.
Selling your 50/50 stat minions to replace with 2/3 poison murloc is just plain insulting.
Never fails with me as well every patch my mmr takes a complete dump. Lost about 700 since the patch. But not streamers of course their luck just gets better! Every game is the same shit. 3 massive hits in a row and i die. Thanks to perfect rng from my opp and this is usually early to mid late game as well. And why the fuck if you are 7-8th place do you play first when you’re struggling to live. Then if you win and are still 7-8 you then play second or who just became first? Why the fuck is this a thing? And I’m sick of being given heroes that are shit or for example the murloc one or jaraxxus and here you need murlocs? Not given a single one. You need demons well here’s murlocs! Why can’t bli$$ard just have a game where it’s not drowning in rng? It’s just sad. Have a game where grinding and playing better actually rewards you. Not where a “pro” can lose to a complete newb. You know how games use to be and the world where you get rewarded actually for your merits and not how many breaks you are given. What a concept!
