I didn't have high expectations with the classic format and I didn't think I would dedicate more than one game to it just to test it, but I played the first game and... I just got hooked. I started playing hearthstone in mid-2015 and by the time my collection was very limited, so I never experienced the game in its pristine version, for calling it somehow. And I have to admit, to my surprise, that it is being a refreshing experience. Just play dudes, make some trades and try to be ahead... and you win games! There is something peaceful in the fact that you will not die suddenly from some random madness that came out of nowhere.
And don't get me wrong, I love to play random value decks, just don't want to play them every day, so I love the fact that now there is a place where I can have that kind of "classic" experience.
And for the first time in a long time, I really want to sit down and play with a cup off coffee and some snacks. I´m happy.
We're all enjoying it today. The real question is how many people will still enjoy it 5 days from now ? Not many I expect. And then 5 weeks from now, nobody.
People will abandon it as soon as the new expansion comes out, that's true, and it will be difficult for it to maintain a community beyond the time slots where standard becomes unplayable. It's a bleak future indeed, so I'll try to enjoy the next few hours
Yep, I enjoy it a lot. Playing Wallet Warrior was my all time favorite, thinking ahead, knowing your opponents deck, managing recources. Not just random b...s..., infinite value generators... etc... like nowadays.
I'm already tired of the mages and hunters. It was fun for about an hour or so, but I rather play something else. The good news I did not see one priest today, so there is a big plus for the Classic format at least :)
I thought I did, but I didn't. Waited a torturous week for Classic to come out. Turns out it sucks. Big taunts are still there with Sunspear Recruit (or whatever her name is), big armor gain through Ice Barrier, ridiculous damage through charge minions... it's like Standard but worse.
Said this in another post and will say it here again: it's just a filler to give the rotating Classic cards a purpose they would otherwise not have. It's an answer to the question: - with Core Set my Classic became useless, can you give me my full dust refund please? - Oh, no, we shan't, there's a new mode you can play. You can even buy MORE packs for it (lol). Just give us the refunds already.
