With FIAV coming out next Tuesday, i'm curious what everyone's favorite standard rotation year was! Personally, i'd go with Year of the Kraken! That Old Gods expansion was so much fun, and compared to the last few years imo Karazhan was awesome too.
As for previous years. League of Explorers is my fav expansion. Can't wait for Alterac!
Year of the Krakken was great all year. Year of the Phoenix was great all year Year of the Mammoth, only up to set 1. Year of the Dragon, after Mammoth rotated Year of the Griffin... was complete garbage
1. Mammooth: High power level jump, but didn't make older cards feel like utter garbage, unlike the last 2 years. Realy cool cards, I actualy liked Death Knights, and Kobolds and Catacombs is in my top favourite expansions.
2. Dragon: 2 of my favourite PvE experiences, power level reasonable, overall pretty cool cards and much better story than current one imo.
3.Kraken: Good year, not much flaws.
4.Raven: Odd/even decks were kinda pain, but balanced cards overall, my issue is that most of cards were pretty weak, including legendaries.
5.Phoenix: Introduction of reward track was a good change, I also like DH class, but I feel like this year started a big power increase of cards, making older cards even more useless.
6.Griffon: Same issues as Phoenix, but also nothing realy good introduced, at least book of mercenaries is better than book of heroes, but that's not a kind of PvE I'm interested in anyway.
Gotta love year of the Kraken the most. Probably the most influential change in the history of Hearthstone. As others have said, so many iconic cards and mechanics were introduced during this period.
I found the year of the Griffin to be to worst yet. There is more content than ever, but it's all just recycled and bland. More of the same. It's been a long time since we really got something new that made me genuinely excited( ie. quests, hero cards, dungeon runs). Instead, we got quests, hero cards and old gods.....again.
