Level 30 here with a full time job as well, purchased the pass at level 15 ish. Im the guy who hit legend in wild one month before the achievemens started counting and went bronze 10 to legend for some fucking exp this month.
Btw: if hearthone feels like a job you should probably get things sorted. No need to play 12 hours a day for some in game achievements or being the first to choose an arbitrary hero after sinking in so many hours.
I'm level 29. It feels like I must play so much more and I don't like it, I felt more free before. I probably won't see level 50 before February. The amount of gold seems really bad at that time as well.
I'm not playing anymore until the fix this shit, which they won't. Seeing how people here are grinding away forced to play the game, the message is clear. This whole reward track/battle pass thing was a great success for Blizzard. And it accomplished exactly what they had hoped for.
As for me, mindless grind for even less scraps than we got before is not really something I'm interested in.
Krip is apparently already 50 according to another post. So imagine week 2 just earning 150 gold basically every day/every other day. At that point it’s just as good as the old system almost better with 2 weeks sunk.
