I take issue with the idea of class balance being what defines whether a meta is healthy or not. Tossing a coin is perfectly balanced 50/50...doesn't mean it is a fun activity. Gameplay Is what I feel defines a meta to me, and right now, I'd say it's below average for hearthstone, too many blatant power house cards that cost too little for what they do, and too much aggro.
Face Hunter is not the best deck, not even close. It is exactly where it was a week ago, didn't get anything in the miniset, beats what it used to beat before and loses to what it used to lose before and the only reason it has a temporarily inflated win rate is that it excels at punishingunoptimized experimental decks, which is what many people are playing in the first 1-2 days after the new miniset
The only reason why Face Hunter and Spell Druid are the only tier 1 decks in the past 24 hours is because they beat the deck that rose as the strongest after the miniset: Deathrattle DH. It's a temporary adjustment.
I honestly don’t know why people buy decks and craft cards.
Aggro hunter, cheapest deck ever, consistently tier 1 / 2 for 3 years… blizzard want to keep F2P happy but they don’t realise they are losing people who were willing to buy decks as this is beyond joke
Some of you seem just to rely on their personal experience to judge if the meta is healthy or not. Statistics is the way to go. On Hsreplay and Hearthstone Meta stats you get at least 7 classes out of 10 having decks with decent win rates enabling them to reach Legend.
That has nothing to do with how frequently you are matched with certain decks, it's more a question of the popularity of the decks per rank.
The fact that 7 classes out of 10 are in the top decks is good and can be qualified as diverse. You can argue about aggro vs control decks that's another question.
Imho they (blizzard) should strive to have an aggro, midrange/tempo, combo, and control deck all represented in the top 6 decks.
Seems like it has been a good minute since we have had a decent combo deck.
Combo decks are dead until Tickatus rotates. I do wish it was possible to play with the more interesting cards in this game. It's a wonder why they even print any when they clearly favor aggro more than any other archetype.
