In the video does anyone else think he sounds like he's about to burst into "Be prepared" from the Lion King?
I'd prefer prep to be 1 mana cost, reduce spell cost by 4.
Always sad to see a classic card die.
Other nerfs are fine though.
So hear me out...
Giving a select few streamers early access to the latest expansion is leaving a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth. I feel like they're taking that initial experimentation we all get on release day (finding out cards we hyped are actually trash and vice versa) and giving it to a select few.
I understand this won't be the new meta entirely, but it's on the path towards it - It's the pros and the streamers that tend to build the foundations of the decks we'll all be using in a month or so.
I know I don't have to watch it, and I can't say it's not enjoyable seeing the new cards in play, it just feels like the hearthstone community is being deprived of that day 1 unpredictably and experimentation.
Could be just me though!
Is it just me that doesn't like this? Basically starts forming a meta before anyone has had a chance to play with the cards...
Isn't it better that we all get the cards at the same time for that fleeting day or 2 of experimenting, rather than everyone just copying the most successful deck from the stream?
R.I.P. fun first days of an expansion when everyone is still trying stuff out.
This has become so boring and predictable D-: Not even the release is fun anymore. This is why I'm 110% against people playing the expansion in advance.
I wonder how ppl actually get the concept of this card wrong and share their wrong conclusions in the comments. This has nothing to do with the starting hand. Its 1 card from the whole 30 card deck and 2 from the class or neutral standard card pool that are not in the deck. Firebat made that clear in the video.
