@IksarHS You have been playing a lot of wild ladder lately, climbing to the top ranks even. How was your experience with the format? Is the powerlever where you expect it to be? Are you happy with the direction the meta is taking?
@yggdreigon_hs I had a ton of fun, been trying to go hardcore in every mode one by one to get a true grasp of the highest level. (Source)
@yggdreigon_hs Meta is pretty diverse at the highest levels in my experience. Lots of reno decks from various classes, handbuff paladin, darkglare warlock, flamewaker mage, and some other offshoot decks here and there. (Source)
@yggdreigon_hs I'd say diversity is doing just fine, my only concerns being the early-game highroll potential of mage and darkglare warlock. (Source)
@yggdreigon_hs Darkglare warlock is the less extreme of the two, but it's also more consistent and powerful. Mage just kills you on turn 4-8 pretty consistently if you don't have any disruption and that is pretty extreme. (Source)
@yggdreigon_hs No balance changes directly on the horizon but I would say that those two decks are both on the edge. (Source)
@IksarHS @yggdreigon_hs What would it take to push them over in your opinion?
@cdaro753 @yggdreigon_hs Population size or a clear sense that there were no legitimate contenders to push them out of the meta if players didn't enjoy playing against them. Mage is fun, but it's not overly powerful for now. Generally speaking, things like that dwindle in popularity over time. (Source)
@cdaro753 @yggdreigon_hs Spring water helped that deck become more populous, but the power level is still not in a place that I would consider it likely to grow in popularity. (Source)
My comments: This is not looking good for wild. Maybe they have plans to nerf incanters flow and spring water to balance standard mage and they see this as enough to balance wild mage indirectly as a bonus? Blizz said no direct balance, this hints at standard mage nerf for indirect wild balance instead.
