    Random early Mamas made the game too swingy with +5/+5. She's still good now, but you don't see sudden 20+dmg rounds in the midgame out of nowhere.

    Mech had a high win % because they were easy and safe, not strong. You could get top4 easy but beyond that, between multiple 50+ toughness minions and jugglers killing shields, it was a very uphill battle.

    Now that demons are weaker, since mech has the smoothest buildup, it loks like the new thing everyone is doing.

    Honestly I was expecting (hoping even) a move of Wrath Weaver to **, maybe with a small increase in stats (2/2 or w/e). This change is a little bit like the Junkbot nerf, where you usually just ignore the card because you find it too late.

    The only reason mech was weak was that they couldn't beat demons. The nerf may be enough for them. As for beasts, moving highmane to 4 may indeed be ok, although i think a Direhorn that early might be too much.

    Cobalt is very strong but mech overall w were very weak recently, mainly because they cannot beat demons.

    Maybe with the watcher nerf the mechs will be the new powerhouse.

    posted a message on Can you invoke without Galakrond in your deck?

    There is one exception, where Invocations work with no Galakrond in hand, deck or board.

    If you discard your Galakrond as a Warlock, then invoke you still get imps. If however you get a new Galakrond off of a card like Soulwarden or Expired Merchant then not only is your Galakrond not upgraded by those Invocations, but if he was at, for example, 3/4 he will revert to 2/4, as he is considered a new card, not the original.

    posted a message on How do you even beat murlocs if they got poisonous going?

    One way is getting one or more big Cleave minions. If they have divine shield as well, buy a second, unbuffed cleave minion to pop tree bubbles with one attack.

    If you are in mechs, Cobalt Guardians are your best bet (against anything else as well...) as long as you have enough token generators.

    It is also doable on Beasts, with a lot of token generation and at least a Mama Bear.

    Lastly, Demons can almost do it, only if you go for the version with Soul Jugglers and, again, token generation.

    You could have a mix (cleave and tokens).

    If the game goes to the "supreme late game" and the murlocs have poisonous, divine shields and a lot of toughness, they are basically unbeatable, however due to the nerfs they have had, they should not make it that far on most games.

    posted a message on The "Animation Penalty"

    The poison effect was supposed to be fixed this patch, and wasn't.

    Yesterday I had to concede a match where we were 1-2,  mech vs murlocs, because the poisonous effect was taking so long to kill the microbots on my phone that I had practically no time between rounds.

    posted a message on The "Animation Penalty"

    The real problem is that different devices have different animation speeds, so people playing in high-end computers have an advantage over people on second rate machines. People on android devices are pretty much playing with a handicap.

    This was already the case in regular Hearthstone with Nozdormu, but that only ever came up from rng spawns etc so noone cared. In Battlegrounds on the other hand it is a legitimate problem.

    posted a message on Battlegrounds Hero Tier List

    Took a quick look, saw Nefarian on tier5, didn't read the rest.

    Destroying every divine shield for 1 gold is godly in the late game. Often Nefarian is simply unbeatable even with a stronger board than him because of his hero power.

    posted a message on Beasts strongest tribe in Battlegrounds?
    Quote from Echtvad >>

    I know this is more a discussion about mechs and beasts, but I find that going 1 of each tribe and getting an early Lightfang or Bran is far superior than either of the tribes. Atleast it have gotten me many of my first place wins where beasts and mechs rarely get me there, but atleast they get me in top 4. 

     This is a valid plan if you get proper minions buffed up. I see too many people doing this with random 1* minions that they just happened to have when getting the lightfang, causing them to suffer in the late game.

    Murlocs can only work with luck on Gentle Megasaurs (poisonous divine shielded murlocs are no joke),

    Demons lack useful abilities, they're all just big bags of stats.

    Beasts and mechs are the most powerful strategies because of how smoothly you can build them up and because of their insane late game.

    I find that beasts at full force are almost unstoppable, but you won't always get everything you want, whereas mechs are extremely powerful even without all their tools, which makes them stronger overall in my opinion.

    Guys, this is not the place for Real-World Political debates.
    I'm trying to keep this thread open, for the discussion about the topic, but please keep it on that topic alone.

    Also, let's cool off the direct insults as well, please.

    Thanks all! 
    Scorpyon

     Well, you could do the Blizzard thing and ban them and take away their achievements.
