Still keep playing vs the same solitaire quest Hunters and Warriors in wild and Quest Warrior and Mage ... in standard. I am reaching at least D5 every month and I am playing since the open Beta, but I swear, this game was never in a worse state than it is now.
All th endless card generation via discover and all the mana refilling mechanics and the ability to search your entire for needed cards and get them or generate needed cards, takes the rest of fun out of this game.
Most games I am playing vs a player who is playing something like a single player quest, not caring about what I am playing. I can sit there and watch them playing 10+ cards per round or even more.
And still no counter for quests ...
I paid a lot of money over the years and I did not regret a single cent, but it is getting worde with every expansion.
Yeah, meta will stay the same... went on an 8 W streak yesterday with a warlock deck made in april. Its even better now than 8 months ago. One of the Worst archetypes Ive ever seen played. Flood the board with minions, hope you Draw the 0-mana "if you have more than 5... destroy it and summon a 5/5".
Dude. It's been less than 24 hours, so we have absolutely no idea what the new meta will be like. Also, I don't know about you, but I've seen multiple new decks on ladder.
People never think this. The expansion was out 6 hours one time yesterday and everyone kept asking what the new meta was. We don't what it is you dummies. Calm the fuck down.
It’s less so about decks in the meta getting small tweaks and moreso about the overall experience changing.
Though there are some “different” lists running around, it seems to be shaping up to be you either play one of the otk from hand decks, or a deck fast enough to stop those decks.
I don’t foresee control being viable whatsoever once again due to warlock still being warlock, but here’s to hoping.
Edit: I want to add that this will be furthered as time goes on. People play fun/new stuff more frequently on day one, like freeze shaman for example, which is actually a good deck against minion based decks. But it AWFUL into decks that don’t play minions while waiting for their otk.
I don't know what you're talking about? The meta is still shaping. It's been a DAY. I've been having fun with the new cards. Especially the hero cards. I've faced 1 Quest Shaman in about 30 games since yesterday at around Diamond 10. That's it. I'm genuinely having fun with the new cards and decks I'm seeing.
Trogg is massively broken, lmao but it's fun to have a disgusting 1 drop once in a while, since all of the others are bad or boring.
I'am actually somewhat enjoying Day 1 Meta, lots of deck variation, I'd suggest to enjoy it while it lasts, because it will get stall and annoying soon once the Top Decks have been figured out and everyone just copy pastes them.
At least Wild is the same shit like it has been before the new expansion. I am Gold 4 now and the last 10 games were vs. 7 quest warriors, 2 quest hunters and 1 warlock.
Blizz needs to nerf these quests or there should be at least the possibility to counter or slow these quests. I mean quest warrior is the most brainless deck ever. Combined with perfect synergies it's close to unbeatable and most games you will have lost by turn 4 or 5. And this small indie company needs months to realize there might be something to adjust?
