Hi guys, just to start out, these are my personal agreements. so A: you agree and I do not care, B: you do not agree and I still do not care.
I want to talk about the new expansion and what I do not want to see. As a bit of background I have play around 1000 legend rank.
First thing that is seriously bad in my opinion is how blizzard mentions they want to push the winrates towards 50%. This does not give people the opportunity to preform consistently. If people have a 50% winrate against each other, that means they should be of equal skill, and therefore RNG can be the deciding factor in such a game. If you have two player with a 51%-49% winrate vs each other, that still menas RNG can be the decicive factor a lot of the times. Now apply this to high level tournaments, in the final you will 0robably have equally skilled players against each other. 50.5% winrate against 49.5% winrate, meaning that as concluded before RNG will play a big role. And this is while talking about high level tournaments where peoples careers might be at stake and they need to make a living of the money. And that then relies on RNG. that is ridiculous.
This is what makes people seriouly doubt the state of hearthstone as an esport at the moment. the legitamancy of an esport lies on the ability of the players to preform consistently, and pushing winrates towards 50% does not make this better.
Second topic. Tempo tech cards, cards like golakka crawler, hungry crab and black knight. In my opinion these are really bad for the game. because they do usually not provide you with the opportunity to play around them. If you play tempo rogeu and on turn 3 the only 3 drop you have is captain you can not, not play it, because that is just a bad play. But then why is there a way for your opponent to punish it??? that makes no sense. or imagine having only lich king in hand on turn 8, you can not pass your turn. So then why is there a way for your opponent to punish it??
This just makes hearthstone a toxic game. I am pretty sure blizzard doesnt agree with rage adding on ladder. but these kind of cards incetivise that behaviour.
Third topic, this is kind of a discusable one, but please make a balanced meta where archtype can see play. like ungoro. So no dominant combo deck or aggro deck. also no dominant control deck or midrange deck. but have a meta where there is a tempo deck, a midrange deck, a full on aggro deck, a minion based aggro deck, a anti aggro control deck, a greedy cobtrol deck and a combo deck.
One last thing, start making expansions cheaper, I know this is already going on. but if you can only play a control deck with 6 legendaries then it is only logical that there is more agrro played on ladder
I would express my view but seen as how you wouldn't care either way, I'll just allow you to continue shouting into the Void like your average lunatic!
