    posted a message on The "Team 5 Doesn't Know What They're Doing" Argument

    I think the better argument as to why some... let's call them unfortunate... interactions are not totally Team 5's fault on the outset is because despite all internal testing and designing and approving cards to be put in, they can only check for so much. Even if we go totally cynical and say there are about 500K people playing Standard ladder in a given month, and lets say 750K for everything else (both casuals. Wild ladder, arena) on the American server alone, there are still well over a thousand times as many people able to test the cards after the fact just by trying to use them. [Aside: I extrapolated those numbers from the fact Blizzard mentions at the end of every month what percentile your rank is. If legend is the top 1%, than a simple ratio equation can tell us approximately how many people are on ladder in a month.] This exponentially increases the rate at which cards are tested and "solved." Faulting Team 5 for some unforeseen consequences, bugs, or interactions less than a week into an expansion is just kind of unfair. However, it is valid to criticize them if there is an issue, and it is left to languish for an unnecessary amount of time after being identified. The tricky part (if it is not a bug or the Deathstalker Rexxar fiasco) is discerning exactly what is an issue, and what should be done about it.

    Simple and effective cards make archtypes work.

    Quote from Leru >>

    I did not catch what BBrode said on the stream, is the battlecry order random or not? If it's random (i hope so), then the absurd otk is not guarantee every time.

     
     Watching the stream again, I can say it is random order. Note that when the OPPONENT (because Day 9 frustrated me by not just playing the damn card) played Shudder, the order of the battlecries changed. Specifically the hunter dragon was near the end of the chain in the first play, led the chain in the second round. No degenerate otkos, but still an amazing card.

    Imagine you are a Dude Paladin who's board of silver hand recruits just got Psychic Screamed back into the deck and then you drop this legendary. Jokes on you Priest, now I've got seven Millhouse Manastorms.

    The question is, does his battlecry continue after he dies to it on the second wave?

     
     He won't die. He does the shooting, everyone else gets shot.

    posted a message on New Warlock Legendary Card Reveal - Lord Godfrey

    I will say this much: from what I understand of Godfrey's lore in WoW, he is a very flavorful card. Also very powerful, will serve warlocks well when Defile rotates. Gotta admit though, I agree with a previous post and wish they gave him to Hunter to really sell control archetype.

    posted a message on Malchezaar's Imp, at what cost?

    Slow down there. If you want the imp NOW and the whole adventure NOW, then yes. If you wait until the next rotation, it will only cost the dust value of the imp (80 for 2).

    I am intrigued to know what memes people are using Zola for. 

     Go look up Dane HearthStone youtube. It is wild only, but he does some really interesting stuff like infinite value Zola mage and dead man's Zola warrior. He is also just a pretty funny guy, which I appreciate.

    posted a message on Deathstalker Rexxar not getting new K&C beats added to his Zombeast options

    Thank you for your civil input. Did my part to suggest a solution, as Kingsbane and Shadowcaster already afford one pretty useful workaround, which is to make the second beast count as an enchantment to the first. Kingsbane proves keeping track of buffs is not impossible and Shadowcaster shows that alterations to stats and cost are not too hard either. I REALLY hope they decide to rectify this whole situation in a satisfactory way. It stings the most no one was warned about it. There is no defense for silently hoping no one would notice.
