Pretty disappointed that Mercenaries is getting delayed. I was actually looking forward to it, while hoping it's not just a gacha game as some people speculate. And to be honest, that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Part of the reason why I was looking forward to Mercenaries is that Battlegrounds has really become stale. There were so few meaningful updates this year, Quillboars aside, and several issues have still not been addressed at all. Instead of doing some big experiments or events like Darkmoon Prizes, it's just been microadjustments with adding/removing one or two heroes and minor card changes for months.
Also, what happened to "seasonal events"? Midsummer Fire Festival should come up soon, I guess, but no Taverns of Time, Frost Festival or something similar. I might be mistaken, but I think there have been 0 legendary quests since Winter's Veil, not even something promotional for Barrens or Wailing Caverns. Tavern Brawl has been repeats for how many months now? Has Duels seen major updates since Darkmoon, new card sets for deckbuilding and a few new passives aside?
I get that they are working on many different things right now and that all takes time and effort. But lately, it feels like half the game is just running on "business as usual", and It's not very exciting,
Oh well... looking forward to the new expansion regardless. Even though I'm out pretty much out of Standard since Scholomance, I'm always curious about new cards.
