People have to understand that blizzard is a company though. They employ a lot of people and they need to make money. They probably started doing that and making epics and legendaries more powerful as the expacs went on solely to make money. If anyone remembers back in the day, it was actually a meme how bad most legendaries and epics were. In the classic set, only a couple still see play, and it's loaded with worthless cards like Cho, Millhouse, and The Beast. It's no coincedence that they upped the power level of legendaries over the years. People are way too harsh on blizz for wanting to make money though. Remember the days when it cost 50$ (in 1990s money) to buy an N64 game? Games have way higher quality now, and are a lot cheaper. Look at games like Subnautica. That game cost 19.99$ and it would've been the greatest and most played game ever if it came out in 1999. The video game industry is struggling now because of things like piracy, and companies need to make money.
Sorry, but that is huge BS. To get full expansion you need to spend $450-500 on packs (135 virtual cards!). That is the equivalent of a new PS4 Pro! To get 4 full expansions per year, you have to spend $1800-2000. A normal game, with a budget usually exceeding $300 million, costs $60. Poor Blizzard indeed...
There are only THREE expansions per year. Learn to count before you whine.
Sure, my bad and that completely changes the perspective! Instead of $1800-2000 you have to spend "only" $1350-1500. So it turns out that everything is fine, Blizzard is great and there is basically no problem, right? Why would you pay $60 for, I don't know, game like Cyberpunk 2077 or God of War, if you can have 135 virtual cards (half of which are rubbish) for $500? Only moron would do that!
Ahahah yes. And the worst morons will also buy the new single player contents. Like now with this prices/cost of decks, the purchases in Hearthstone are really becoming a thing for morons.
go to wild, wild is mythically infamous for being expensive which is far from the truth, sure you need to pay a shiton if you want to play a renodeck but such is the nature of highlander decks, you want to run more good stuff, but for regular decks, many of them are tremendously adquisible in fact, many viable decks like Dragon IF priest, Mech hunter, and Secret mage are super cheap with a maximum of 2 legendaries investment, and well the aforementioned mehc hunter is dirt cheap if you already own zilliax and got Sn1p Sn4p during the free event.
Dust inflation is real and its a shame that most fun/meta decks these days cost around 10k dust if you don't wanna play the most straightforward aggro deck.
The concept in wild is the same, but wild is far more expensive, especially for new players, since you have to buy also sets that will not use in standard but only in wild, and maybe also the old adventures.
Mech hunter, and Secret mage are indeed aggro, so you are confirming what he is saying Lidl_wayne.
And by the way, I agree with him. The game is really expensive (specially wild, it is prohibitive for new players) at least you don't want to play aggro. The game has always been like this, but now it's worse. Even worse, now you have to pay also for the single player contents, which were free before.
It is 4/5 expansions that I am hating this game. After Brode, it is ruined.
