Battletag: MikaelThas#1245 Region: NA Trade only?: Yes, you go first
I'm a returning player and have a few questions. I left the game a short time after AoO came out (and the whole DH mess), so I see the game has changed a lot since then (spells have now schools, there are new mechanics, quests, achievements, etc). I don't really care much about standard, in fact I have in mind to focus on classic - the reason I'm returning.
I have seen that Blizzard has released a lot of new hero skins - I mean, a lot. Back when I used to play we only had a few purchaseable heroes and the 1000 victories alt skins. Can I still obtain the new skins, or they were time-limited? Some of them were released in special bundles, and in something called Tavern Pass. Are they going to return in the future? What about old card backs (and the new ones I missed during my absence), can I still buy them?
That's all about cosmetics. I have a question about classic mode. Does anybody know if Blizzard is planning to include expansions and adventures from Hearthstone Year 1 & 2 to classic mode? (maybe a separate mode?).
Thanks for taking the time to read and respond.
I was expecting a hunter nerf too. Every single hunter deck is efficient in the meta right now, especially HL, which doesn't make sense as HL decks tend to be a bit less consistent than regular decks. HL hunter is way too efficient and that bothers me. Even aggro is less difficult to deal with.
I'm ok with the changes, and I say this as a Rogue Galakrond player. Finally a little refresh for the meta. Now the enemy to beat is Pirate/Bomb Warrior.
And I was complaining because I can't get past D3-2. Don't worry about matchmaking, try to focus on your main deck(s) and how to response to your opponent plays. Most of players tend to netdeck so take a look at their decks that way you'll know how to play around their cards.
It's rather a tempo/curve nerf than a functionality nerf:
DHs can no longer have a 2/2 Battlefiend at turn 1.
DHs can no longer trigger Glaivebound Adept at turn 5 (unless they previously equipped a weapon).
DHs can no longer deal 1 AoE damage twice with Altruis the Outcast at turn 4 (now they have to wait till turn 6).
DHs can no longer summon an Illidari Satyr (through Satyr Overseer) at turn 3 (unless they previously equipped a weapon).
DHs can no longer play a 4/2 Furious Felfin with Rush at turn 2.
The worst meta ever was Pirate Warrior back in MSoG. You were dead at turn 4-5. Very bad memories from it. The current Pirate Warrior is bringing some little vietnam flashbacks but nothing I can't handle lol.
I hope the new expansion will bring a bundle with a new Rogue hero and sneaky things and alot of shadowy thingsss,
ROGUE ROGUE AND MORE ROGUE.
But yeah, maybe a teaser next month
Haha, yeah, same here. We, main rogue players, have been waiting for a new hero skin for too long (Pirate Valeera doesn't count). :(
Facts, Valeera is a badass (maiev is crap and not even a real rogue), but i wish they did a better job for the 1000th win (non themed one)
I feel the same, but for god's sake, can we just have a decent Druid alternate hero? Lunara is retcon (I hate her) and the eerie-looking tree is horrible. Elise Starseeker is the only decent one, but she is not original of WoW (now she exists in wow, but was created in HS first). I'm still waiting for Hamuul Runetotem.
As for the other classes, I hope for:
Mage: Aegwynn or Prince Kael'Thas
Warrior: Varian Wrynn or Cairne Bloodhoof
Shaman: Ner'zhul or Drek'thar
Rogue: Tess Greymane or Garona Halforcen
Demon Hunter: Izal Whitemoon
I propose this nerf:
Do you agree or does he need even more nerf than this?
