So far I have to say that it looks pretty sweet! Not many people around who don't like dragons and it seems like they'll be descending in a flight soon enough (see what I did there?)!
I also really like how they're giving everyone all 5 Galakronds. That should help build the hype.
I'm normally pretty amped when a new set is announced and this time is no different. Really like the theme and it seems like some of the new cards are the nuts - especially the 2 mana Druid Wild Growth draw a card one!
Indeed.....after a week or 2 the meta has settled and it will be the same boring decks you will encounter....over and over again
Why do people always whine and complain about this. This is the case in any card game. It is statistically impossible to not have a "perfect" combination of 30 cards thus resulting in the best deck.
And then people like you complain that whatever deck is at the top is too overpowered and needs to be nerfed. What do you think happens after this happens? Everything becomes perfectly balanced? No. There then becomes a different "perfect" combination of 30 cards resulting in the new top deck. It's impossible in card games for this not to happen. Adapt or move on.
I love my hand-buff dragon paladin. Only issue is that it needs more dragons to be stronger, but there's none that would make sense to have in the deck. So getting a dragon expansion is awesome. I just hope not everyone will be playing dragon decks, or it becomes boring.
Here's the state of the game a few weeks after this expansion, just so you all aren't surprised or disappointed:
New expansion. Same shit.
Same rigged game that already dictates whether you win or lose before you even start. Regardless of whatever shiny new cards you got suckered into crafting/buying that you thought would help you win more.
And one class that will come up with some superpowered deck that ninety percent of these losers will play, Blizzard will indirectly nerf that deck two months later by screwing over some other class cards that didnt deserve it. Rinse and repeat next expansion.
I think it will more of the same...just few cards will actually be used and the rest will be crap. The new expansion will not change what the meta is now.....dominance of a few classes and you will meet over and over again the same decks after the meta settles...It's been like this for some time now and we still play the game right? Like I said nothing new..
I mean, how is a game like Hearthstone supposed to work differently? There is always a meta and the intention is not to have all 135 cards played.
Two things to clear here in your comment:
- It's not a question of having HS working differently, it's about improving the game. There's a true lack of variety in the meta hence the repetitiveness and the boredom. Some players may like or just not care but that doesn't make it acceptable. You are implying that having 2 or 3 decks dominating the meta is normal and unavoidable. You probably haven't played HS in the early days then...
- Please be serious, it's not about having all 135 cards played. It's about going back to what HS was and got us addicted to it : a decent variety of classes able to climb the meta, less RNG and more player's skill..
All I can think is dragons, dragons and even more dragons - im hyped and the new Ysera looks nice even tho it might not be competitive.
It might not be competitive? In what world?
Regardless of whether you play it on turn 9 or any turn after that, with how much draw power Druid has at the moment, the chances of you ending up with a board full of dragons in no time is pretty fricken high.
