Trade only?: Yes, you go first.
I'm sorry, this could be taken as a bit mean spirited but I mean it in the most literal of terms.
If $80 constitutes a "huge paywall" for you, perhaps you have more pressing concerns in your life than the next alternate hero skin.
Blizzard has earned my dollars for many many years dating back to Warcraft 2, and they are the last company in the world I'd be pissed to fund. No one seems to want to say it, but without people buying packs and other offerings, the game does not exist. Furthermore, in what walk of life is it not assumed that spending more money gets you more stuff?
If you plan on buying packs for this expansion, you should buy a bundle (it has the best cost:pack ratio). If you don't . . . perhaps consider saying thank you to the first guy you see rocking mecha - Jaraxxus. That person helped fund the game you seem to care about enough to bitch about pricing models.
This event has had a lot more issues than tour stops usually do but if I understand correctly the production which does not come from Blizzard but from local organizers is doing an event of this proportion for the first time (at least Sottle's tweet seems to suggest that). And the popularity of this tour stop has been huge, usual tour stops with Swiss have around 200 players, this one has almost 400. Let's hope they're able to overcome the issues during the weekend.
That ugly art of Jaina...
DK Jaina's heropower is rly good, and works pretty fine with Syndragosa's Frozen Champions 0/1.Killing them with heropower gives two 3/6 elementals with lifesteal and two legendary minions
how about new cards for today?
'alright let's see the next big chunk of this expansion's cards'
'dis gon b gud'
The lack of cancer rng in the cards revealed so far is beautiful!
I hope blizzard understands that they can make interesting, fun and unique cards without having to put discover/add a random card on everything.
Just look at Defile and Dead Man's Hand, these are probably some of the most unique effects created until now, will probably see play in the competitive scene, will definately see play in the meme game, they aren't incredibly overpowered in arena and they don't contain unfair amounts of rng, in fact these demand some good planning and skillful use to get the most out of.
Good job blizzard! :D
