    The problem is, the divide between the Haves and the Have-Nots from this expansion is so massive that nerfs alone would not save it. We're talking about multiple classes pulling sub-40% winrates, you'd need to obliterate everything from orbit thrice over to give these classes a chance using only nerfs alone. It's much more practical, and likely to produce results, to push the weak and underperforming archetypes to match the current power level instead of dragging everyone else down to their level. 

    Also, your example of Wildfire is very flawed because since its buffs, Wildfire is not core to EVERY Mage deck. Spooky, Ping, and some versions of Naga Mage did run Wildfire as a core card, but not Mech or Big Spell, and the latter two were much more popular last expansion. 

     Why would you not run wildfire in any mage deck other than mech mage??? They do run it in the skeleton mage too! I'm watching a tournament right as I'm typing this where they're running it! They even run the freaking card in big spell mage. And once again, if they nerf cards and the meta's still bad, just nerf more lol. It's that simple. One of HS's problems is that they're too conservative about how they nerf cards now, and they only ever nerf the most problematic things. The Legends of Runeterra balance team is way better because they don't just nerf the best deck. They have the foresight to know that nerfing the best deck makes the 2nd best one the best.

    stop buffing cards... When you nerf cards, you're effectively buffing every other card in the game, which is great. When they buff cards, 99/100 times, the card was "fair" before and now the buff makes the card overtuned, overplayed, and mandatory to include in every deck, like Wildfire. Only stupidly weak cards like Moorabi should see buffs. There is no reason whatsoever that they should buff VanCleef or the hero cards 2 expansions ago. Card's already played in every freaking rogue deck...

    I forget his name, but the first Bomberman game was apparently made by 1 guy in a weekend by himself. He was infamous for obsessively chewing gum too and when he'd run out of gum, hed grab handfuls of pencils and chew the wood and lead to a pulp LOL

    Quote from Fyrfytr998 >>

    Aggro < Control < Combo < Aggro. 

    It's a common theme that has worked since beta. Take one out and the system collapses. Blizzard has been diligent in making most combo decks waiting until 8 or 9 to pop. Which in turn gives each play style a chance to counter its counter. But cards that outright  stop combos are bad for the game. Why not just stop making game ending cards to begin with?

     "Why not just stop making game ending cards to begin with?" EXACTLY. Finally someone who gets it. I hate combo decks and I think they're the worst thing in the game usually, but cards like this are total cancer. Not only will you have to run this in every deck, which you will because everyone else will, it's a legendary AKA you need to waste 1600 of your hard-earned dust to craft, but it also eats a deck slot. The only feasible way this won't be in every deck is if we have an aggro meta which all the dummies on this site will hate even more.

    Hand distruption makes sense in games like MTG and Legends of Runeterra, but it never works in HS because you can only have 2 copies of a card or 1 legendary. Every time cards like Mutanus and Dirty Rat are used, they either have 0 impact, or your opponent concedes on the spot because they lost their win condition because of something they had no control over.

    Here's an idea Blizzard: if people don't like oppressive combo decks, instead of printing BS frustrating cards like this that 1: take up a deck slot and may not even be drawn vs these combo decks and 2: ruin fun decks as well as combo ones, WHY NOT JUST NERF THE COMBO DECKS. So freaking aggravating.

    All the idiots here praise this crap because "it's our savior vs combo decks" now, but just wait until every deck runs this and some shaman deck running this, Mutanus, and Dirty Rat becomes popular and you go against it every game and YOU become the one who can't interact with THEM, not the other way around. Enjoy the meta because we all know that if every deck isn't running this card, they're all going to be playing aggro decks instead!

    Why don't people realize this card is perfect to just throw into an aggro face deck? Only reason this card isn't the most broken card they've ever printed is because it's a legendary and in those sorts of aggressive decks, you don't tend to draw many cards and you can't reliably get it in your opener. This is Flamewreathed Faceless with an upside instead of overload 2 lol.

    If you're playing a mill deck and you queue vs another deck playing this card, you're going to have a bad time. Hate this card design :/

    posted a message on How Can I get Sathrovarr Legendary?

    If you are truly willing to "go above and beyond" to get this card, then you must prove yourself to me my son. Meet me by the tree at 5:30 AM and we will begin your training. You will be asked to perform a series of tasks, and after several months, if you are deemed worthy, I will show you where the card is hidden...

    posted a message on Diamond Cards- Come chat with a Dev! [Confirmed]

    I have a suggestion for you: There's a bunch of mercenaries diamond cards like Deathwing that are also playable ladder cards. Why not put these diamond cards in the game? I'd imagine it would be pretty easy to program and new art wouldn't have to be made. Also, there's a lot of cool alternative mercenaries arts for playable standard cards, can we get those selectable?

    On a side note: I really wish most of the diamonds weren't directly tied to owning all the legendaries of a set and instead were linked to some sort of test of skill or ridiculous achievement. Like a diamond lorewalker cho for giving your opponent 200 cards or something

    posted a message on Game Reveal - Warcraft Universe Mobile Game - Warcraft Arclight Rumble!

    Holy shit, why is everyone so negative???? I hate smart phones and don't have one, but this game legitimately looks like a lot of fun and I might even consider using an emulator to play it. The art style's great imo because it still looks like warcraft and has all of our favorite characters, but the art style's totally different and stands out with all of blizzard's other products.

    If you don't want to play the game, then don't play it.... It'd be one thing if they announced that this was a replacement for a new WoW or HS expansion, but this is a totally new side product, so there's literally 0 reason to complain that they made it. The fact that like 20K people disliked the video and all the comments are trashing it is extremely immature and pathetic and makes me ashamed to be a blizz fan. Cmon guys. A lot of people make these games for a living and I've had a small amount of experience making games myself and it feels like complete shit when a bunch of people trash the thing you worked hard on. Get a life.

    posted a message on Xyrella The Devout

    It's working as intended and yes, I agree that it's total horse manuer. I run a similar priest deck with the silence theme, but I dont own the hero card and the deck does decent. If I put the hero in it and played it, it will literally double the win-rate. Fuck all of the hero cards. People complain about stuff like drek thar, but the real problem with the game is these blatently overtuned hero cards. Ben Brode said it best when he said that the hero cards from the Frozen Throne were a mistake and they "don't want to print any more hero cards for the forseeable future" right before leaving. Theyre so toxic because your opponent has literally 0 counterplay to them. Can't even rat them out. Once these all rotate out, we'll actually have a new meta, but for the time being, we're in for another year of the meta from 'Fractured in Alterac Valley' with a few new cards added. Also, fuck Raid Boss Onyxia seriously. Who asked for this in the game????

    posted a message on Kazakusan nerf unhealthy for Hearthstone

    Honestly, I think the change isn't even enough. Kazakusan would be even cooler and better if the text was: Battlecry: Transform all of your dragons in your deck into random treasures. It'd make the card a lot more fun and balanced and treat it like it should be: a wacky fun card, which is what the devs were probably going for when they designed it. This nerf they're doing is actually the smartest way I've ever seen them nerf a card.
