    posted a message on Ysera

    I want to believe that and it's the logical explanation, just checking if others have noticed the same.  Wouldn't be a huge surprise given her avg placement is a record low.

    But... 81 heros says we should get her as a choice about 1 in 20 matches.  I just don't think I am seeing that.  I'd guess I spent at least 50 matches looking for her.  Of course, that's possible, just seemed odd combined with rarely seeing her.  Suppose I should track it but was curious if anyone else noticed.

    I also didn't realize we had 81 bloody heros now (counted HS Replay list), just wow.

    Did they adjust Ysera's availability rate? 

    I have been a Ysera fan for quite some time.  But now, when she has her day in the sun (<2.58 avg placement), I can't find her.  After several days of not getting her as an option, I lost it and started conceding dozens of matches.... nothing, not onces.  So I assumed that she got pulled... but then I played against her once.  So, I conceded a bunch of matches again without success.  Finally I did get her once by chance. 

    Since the last update I've had her as a choice once and I think I've only seen her a handful of times.   Do they adjust the probability of certain hero's dropping for any reason (like a super low avg placement)?

    I was just wondering a day or two ago about whether or not I had the energy to expend on proving that Soul Juggler is blessed during attack determination.  It seemed so obvious, but I am also aware of biases and am data driven. Thank you for saving me the time and effort.

    Well Naga just got nerfed really hard.  Will be interesting to see if they can keep top tribe but I doubt it.

    Just like every other new tribe introduction they intentionally cause a stir for attention.  Then a few weeks later they will dull down the strength so that both sides feel they won and Battlegrounds nets a rise in play. 

    My advice is to just lean in and go for Naga every game unless something else really presents itself.  That way you really learn quickly how it is played and maybe what works with it (like how blood gems are spells).  Figure out which Hero's work best for the tribe now, though some will drop off after the coming balance (Tess and Scabbs).  

    I've only finished 1st once without Naga since launch and that was with a strong Dragon build. I rarely finish out of the top 4.  Lean in and learn and watch the meta as it adapts.

    There was a balance patch 4 days ago. Illidan's buddy now gives immune for 1 attack (for 2 attacks the golden one) to 1 minion only

     

    I mentioned the patch.

    That is not the wording I remember. I reread it a couple of times. My left most minion did not get 2 attacks with immunity either.  From what I could tell there was zero difference with the golden buddy vs the non-golden buddy.

    A quick search of the web confirms the bug I suspected as did the person who replied before you.

    My far right minion, the second minion of mine to attack during the turn, did not have immunity and died during its first attack (at the start of turn).  I swapped to a different minion the next turn and had the same thing happen.

    I just played him for the first time since the patch.  After I got his buddy golden and in play, my second attacking minion did not gain immunity during it's first attack.  There seemed to be no change in the effect from the non-golden buddy. Am I misunderstanding something?

    I will start.  Millificent Manastorm's buddy will lose its Mech minion type status.  

     Strike 1

     Brilliant, thanks.

    That'll do literally nothing at all.
    I'm thinking toning down illidan's buddy, toning down tarec's buddy and reducing the damage of the Millificent bombs.
    However, i'm also hoping they take a look at the broken pre-buddy stuff that is still rampant, like infinite avenge abuse and reborn Maexxna in particular. Maybe its also time to remove dongs.

     Well it would prevent Kangor from pulling even more copies of the bomb. But honestly, it's a strategy countered by Lich/Togwaggle and other high health builds, it will probably balance itself out rock/paper/scissor style.

    I feel like avenge was somewhat nerfed by the faster meta, I rarely see everybody go for Lightspawn now but I just got back to 8k yesterday. I suppose it depends alot on how fast the hero you play is, if avenge milkers are usable or not.

    I agree that Illidan and Maexxna need to be seriously looked at though, while Maexxna might be necessary (see Lich/Togwaggle countering when murlocs are out), I think that together with Illidan's immunity they are completely broken.

     Yes, the suggestion is for the Kangor synergy.  It can be pretty strong early particularly with Baron.  She seems to be on top on msreply so that seemed like the easiest button to push to help.  Not saying it will be enough.

    But I am at best an average player.

    I can confirm they changed those odds.  I play Panda a lot and got my first Reno hero power in over 2 months yesterday.

    Impulsive Trickster can also work with Tarecgosa for some ridiculous health stats.

     I finally tried this one out using Edwin for a weird Dragon, Demon, Merloc build.  I got Tarecgosa up to 175/459 and came in second to a huge Dragon build with Nadina.  It was close and we both needed the right sequence of hits to win.
