    I understand the frustrations and the one card that needs an immediate nerf is obviously Lighting Bloom. As of right now it is the most played card, the highest rated card by streamers before it was released, ALL Druid variants play two copies and should I say more? There’s a streamer that did a turn 1 OTK combo with it! Turn 1! (Fun and interactive). Granted, it is not easy to pull off but still, the chance that it’s possible!  Blizzard says it is still gathering data...wtf are you talking about? Can’t you clearly see how unbalanced this card is already!? Do blizzard developers even test these cards out themselves before releasing? I guess they don’t want to pay game testers...saves them money.

     What is the turn 1 OTK?

    Quote from Sherman1986 >>

    Battlegrounds this, Battlegrounds that... Jesus Christ, stop Blizzard!!!

     I know, I would like if they focused more on the main, Original standard game mode. For example, adding new heroes, new characters such as Tauren, forsaken (undead),  new classes like monk and cards that represent them. More dwarf, Tauren playable cards. 2vs2 modes (Horde vs alliance). Hero cards for hunter, Paladin, Druid  to compete against Galakrond. To better balance the game, they should Update classic cards like they did for priest and give some identity to classes such as Paladin or mage. My main point of this is not to complain but offer ideas that I hear many people request.  Battlegrounds has no reward and it feels like most of the time it’s an RNG fiesta

    posted a message on Why Blizzard can't just admit they screwed up?

    With so many demon card minions, don't you think there should be a tech card against demon types? DH and locks use many demon type cards. For example, there are card counters like a hungry crab or dragonmaw poacher. What does this comment have anything to do with the post? Instead of nerfing cards, why dont they add tech counters? If there is no counter to mechanics of a card game then there is problems.  I’m sure they are aware, they nerfed card sacrificial pact. I thought that classes like Paladin or priest would have some cards to fight against demons, lore wise it makes sense..

    posted a message on Balance != Blizzard
    Quote from Rino >>

    Balance is getting out of hand quite quickly and now the fact that you can't do anything against Demon Hunter has ruined it for me. 6 Games in a row, big demons, dropping bodies with effects like spells without any downside and insane value, 9/5 Rush into 5/9 Taunt for 8 Mana, yah alright lets give Paladins 1 mana Dormant that wakes up after 2 turns with an effect of a 2 mana minion. I get that they wanted to make people come back and play but this is horrible marketing. The saying "If you can't beat them, join them" is literally the only thing you can do right now. My question is how do cards like that pass testing, aren't they paying engineers to develop and balance the game?

    I would appreciate anyone who has decent understanding of balance to elaborate on these cards:

    Priestess of Fury

    Imprisoned Antaen

    Coilfang Warlord

    Imprisoned Sungill

     If you ask our opinion I’ll give mine. #1 Priestess of Fury, make it into a battlecry and only target enemy minions. #2 Imprisoned Antaen, awaken effect attacks only enemy minions #3. Coilfang Warlord, increase mana by 1-2 up to 10. #4 imprisoned Sungill, I’m assuming you would like a buff since it is currently underwhelming? Give the minions rush or life steal or both.

    SWCT, That is your own Interpretation and understanding of what I had said. Yes, you are correct, I should have originally used more specific words but I think I’ve explained what I meant by it. I never said it was owned by them, I said they are a part of it. You seem like an easy type to upset and get into arguments so I’ll leave it at that.    https://www.pcgamer.com/every-game-company-that-tencent-has-invested-in/     https://www.fool.com/investing/2018/02/13/tencent-owns-stakes-in-these-4-us-companies.aspx

     Tencent owning 5% of Blizzard stock means nothing. They aren't on the board of directors and get no say in how the games are developed or anything about how the company is run.

     

    Blizzard's choices regarding China are a capitalist decision to appeal to the Chinese market because they're greedy fucks who want a wider sales reach, they have nothing to do with Tencent.

     SinAscendent, where are you getting this information? “They aren’t on the board of directors and get no say in how the games are developed”. It sounds like your opinion and not a fact. On the other hand, it would make logical sense that if a company would own a part of a company, It would have some involvement in the product including development. Also, your comment “ the Chinese market because they’re greedy fks” is stereotypical and racist. Ultimately it is Blizzards choices as a whole company that wanted  a “wider sales reach”. It is incorrect to say it has nothing to do with Tencent unless you have some valid proof or link to the comments you claim.

    SCWT, before you judge someone you don’t know, educate yourself with knowing what the person is talking about. I provided some links for you to read. These are just a few links that explain about the Chinese buying a part of blizzard. Also, I have my opinions on not liking demons. Why does that make me a troll? 

     Please explain how this relates in any way whatsoever to the rest of this thread. 

     If you read my previous post you would better understand but I’ll explain it you since you ask. Basically, I was talking about game balance which this thread is about. I previously mentioned how the company Blizzard has changed over time, creating an unbalance in the core mechanics of the game (classic set) and how every Recent new expansion is a call for nerfs. Also, I wanted to remind those or even those that don’t know, some reasons why the game is at the moment an unbalanced “Give me more money because F you” game. Third party investors that prefer money over many things such as the quality of the game, in this case the Chinese investors that own a part of this game.

    Quote from zmauls >>

    Do you guys not understand how statistics work? It's a new class. Tons of people are playing it because it's exciting. 70% win rate is meaningless.

    If everyone on ladder was playing Demon Hunter, it would have 100% win rate. It's not complicated.

    Seems like the one who doesn't understand how statistics work is you. As some people already mentioned, the winrate would be 50%. Basic math, dude.

    Quote from Ooze1800 >>

    troll? it would have 50% winrate -_-...

    How about stop calling others "troll" for whatever reason, people?

     I know it’s just a word that people, especially gamers use nowadays when they disagree with a comment or opinion. It’s mostly used to try and avoid viable argument, discredit, belittle and feel superior to someone else’s Comments or opinions. Most of the time when the word “troll” is used It makes no sense other than what is listed above. Childish.

    This game was bought by Chinese investors who want more money.

     Where did you read this garbage? Hearthstone is owned by Blizzard Entertainment which is a part of Activision Blizzard. It's an American company. It may have some Chinese shareholders and shareholders from several other countries as well but it's still an American company. It's shares are traded on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

    Sorry you don't like Demons btw.

     1) This guy is a troll account. Just ignore him.

    2) I think the troll post was referencing how Blizzard frequently bends to the whims of the Chinese government. (As they did with the artwork changes to Jaina, Eviscerate, etc)

    posted a message on Demon Hunter 73% Winrate....WTF

    With so many demon cards nowadays, why didn’t the hearthstone team Release an anti tech card against?  For example, hungry crab for Murlocs or dragonmaw poacher for dragons? I feel like there should have been a Paladin or priest card to fight off And slay demons (class identity). Paladin lacks card draw and identity, priest feels like it joined the dark side With Galakrond. The prime Card for mage is a demon..Seems like demons and darkness has taken over hearthstone with 80%+ Locks and DH. I get it, it’s the expansion theme but where are the heroes that slay demons? Titans? Good guys?

    I guess we are the beta testers right now since they probably don’t want to pay real testers.
