Imagine pre ordering as a wild player. Until I see some changes to snip snap lock or burn mage like cloud prince, I ain’t spending another penny!
Lol. Good luck with that. Blizzard has to care about wild first, and for Blizzard, wild is about as low on the totem pole as priorities can get.
That said my personal experience in wild hasn't been as bad as yours it seems as I haven't been running into as many of those decks. But with those two decks I don't think Snip Snap or Prince is a problem. I'd prioritize nerfing other cards first.
It's great value so long as you can budget yourself accordingly. And it makes it a LOT easier to do so when you have a day job. =)
I mean, I can see were some players would balk at a 80.00 price tag, just realize what you DO get with it when you buy it. Not only do you in fact get 100 packs this time, which is a hugely amount in favor of the player this time, (I'm not sure of exact maths but its more than the "fair 1:1 gold-pack ratio) BUT in addition you're guaranteed the random Golden Legendary minion PLUS mother effing Deathwing as a hero skin for Warrior! It's sick value that's truly in favor of the player base this time around.
Even the mini bundle is great value. For 50 bucks, you get 60 packs (which again, is more than the 1:1 pack-gold ratio in favor of the player), PLUS yet another free random golden legendary, PLUS a cardback.
So when it comes to set launch for me not only am I guaranteed 160 packs on the spot, but plus im also guaranteed to have 2 golden legendaries on opening day. Sounds pretty good to me.
I love Blizzard gaming and Hearthstone's latest expansion is my favorite thus far because of Dragons! Finally!
