    And again you only look at top 1000 legend. those are approx 1000 players, have you ever done any statistics? 1000 players do not represent the 23.5 million players as of februari 11th. I got the stats from hsreplay obviously, but over all ranks not recluded to several players. Yes Priest is more popular than some classes such as shaman, but you don't nerf something because people like playing it. Also overall popularity of priest doesnt even reach 10% how can a class be labeled as most popular?

    Are trolling right? The top 1000 or even better top 100 represent the current meta since those are the best players (high game knowledge). If you are taking into account every ranks in this game you get stats from bronze, silver, gold etc. At those ranks, most people are looking for fast aggro deck in order to climb faster, people usually make tons of misplay etc generally not a good statistical sample. If you are making a statistical analysis you need  clear samples of data and only the top ranked players provide those. After all, there is a reason why you need to get a premium subscribtion at hsreplay in order to get stats from high ranks. 

     false. That is totally false. It matters too little. First: there is like an 80% of players in the game that dont play exactly like this people (for put a random %) Ladder always perform different in the regular ranks because legend is a place where people play in a veeery different way most of the times. 

     That 80% is the casual player base (casuals, wild format, etc.) but they don't make a ban list based on casual players, lmao. The only things that matter for casuals are the good pack deals, cosmetics, and probably some rewards.

    They take decisions base on stuff that sometimes is not even related to the Match but external data ("i am playing with this other guy that is running that version of this deck that dont use this card so i dont need to play around it"; is a good example). You cant take decisions base on "how the best players playa against each other" when those guys literally track their decks, the most use recipes, the ones that have certain changes, etc...

    Exactly!! The same goes with Master Quals and Mts. That's the reason that nerfs are based on the top 1000 and Mt decklists (sometimes they want to push some pretty bad decks in order to become meta but they fail every time). I can't understand why you disagree with me while you are saying the same thing as me. Lmao😂

     I am talking about Mt results, not the random ladder matches or the opinions of content creators like Kibler

    Mt has nothing to do with real meta-gameplay and Kibler is not just "random content creator", he's a veteran of card games, lead designer of World of Warcraft Trading Card Game and designer of many other card games. In short, he knows the stuff.

    Brian Kibler is not just a veteran but a Hall of Famer at MTG and a game designer, but the last couple of years is a content creator just like Regis Killbin etc. He is making awesome streams, playing really fun decks but he is not part of the competitive scene. He is not tryharding for finishes or participate at any mts. Bans are based on the competitive scene (blizzard doesn't care if you are struggling against meme decks at low ranks) and sadly Kibler is not part of it anymore.

     Priest is "the best performing deck"? I don't think so. He is doing OK in higher ranks with some very favorable matchups (mostly against aggro and tempo decks like Face Hunter or Rush Warrior), but he also has couple awful ones like Control Warlock, NM Mage, Poison Rogue or OTK Demon Hunter.

    At some point, Priest players thought: "Hey, if the deck is good against aggro and tempo anyway, why don't we just cut some overkill control cards and replace them with somthing to improve our worse matchups?". This is how Kazakus Priest was born, deck which much better matchups against Mage or Rogue (because of more pro-active and tempo oriented nature of the deck - Kibler explained that in his videos several times).

    Now this archetype is dead though, so Priest will have to revert to his retro-active "heal and remove" style deck. He will continue stomping on aggro decks and losing hopelessly against others... Was that the goal of this change? To push control back to T3/T4?

    Master tour is really not representative for the the game. Blizzard won't nerf a card because a class is seen alot in tournaments. On ladder priest is wayyyyyyyy behind on popularity versus warlock,hunter,paladin and mage.

     Mts is the competitive scene and that matters more than just the ladder. Also, if you check popularity and w.r. at hsreplay's top 1000 legends, Priest is wayyyyyy😂 more popular than some of those classes. Where did you get your stats?

    They nerfed hysteria because Control Priest is the best performing deck and the second most popular after the mage (based on Mt's results), Control warlock was just unlucky. Control warlock was already a weak deck (probably the worst one) and now is pretty much hopeless. With those buffs, they try to bring up zoo by I don't think they are enough.

    Sword of the Fallen could have been 3 mana 1/2. The rest seems ok. Generally, pretty soft nerfs

    posted a message on REWARDS TRACK UPDATE - Official Blizzard Statement
    "In addition, you’ve provided us with a wealth of feedback, and we agree that the pack rewards at the end of the track don’t feel appropriate for the effort it takes to get them. We’re going to adjust these rewards in the later stages of the track, swapping six packs for a total of 1350 gold that players can spend as they see fit. If any players reach this milestone before we implement these changes, they will be retroactively compensated."
    Imagine getting cards nearly before they are about to rotate out... That's hilarious, thank you for fixing it!!

    Totally agree with CakeEater!! Hearthstone is a free to play game.You dont have the right to complain about a game that someone offers you for free in the first place!IFor some reason people believe that hearthstone is a p2p or p2w game and that's is the reason that they can't achieve top finishes or win any tours etc.Most of the MT qualifiers have accounts in Europe America and Asia and NOT every account has access to full collection, just the cards for their line-ups.So, If they achieved and you failed is not because of the collection.You can complain about the high rolls and low rolls and you have to accept that it is what it is.

    About the  people play 5-6 hour/day just to farm gold...Stop being lazy and find a job and ,trust me, job worths more than your ingame gold(you have to live somehow anyway).

    My only complains about blizzard are when they try to give us or sell crappy stuff e.x. acting like duels is a "new" mode, giving us expansions with only 4-5 meaningfull cards and the rest are nonesense meme material etc.

    P.S. Being "competitive" means you participate in tours and try for top finishes!Being able to get to legend each season or trying to get big winning streaks doesnt count as "competitive" in case some people cant understand it.
