    Who knows, he changes are pretty damn small, but perhaps we could get to see some elemental shaman making it into a low tier meta class. It's a lot of small changes anyways.

    You could say xD at how they try to buff deathrattle demon hunter tho.

    Lol went on wild ranked with some meme random priest... and guess what, opponents were cookie cutter aggro druids and secret mages.

    At bronze 10. At this time of the month!

    EDIT: Last bastard druid did not see the wrath of wranduin coming... fine by me, 10 bronze is for wackos, not morons.

    Nice gender equality in all teams 2 dudes and 2 ladyas per team. Finally!

     I find it sexist, mate. 
    cause girls got there just for their gender.

    It's sexist and abusive even to these girls, isn't it? 
    sad crazy world...

    Next events are gonna be 4 kittens in each team... i mean, they are cute and everybode loves them
    who cares if they don't know how to play HS

     Woman pressence is enforced because if not enforced people will go for men instead even if they aren't better. Just because we still feel more "normal" watching dudes playing.

    Actual world is not really fair, even if ethically two wrongs won't make a right, it's ok if they put women to give them a chance.

    Gonna need a citation for "they're here just for being girls", chief. 

     It's equality of outcome vs equality of opportunity and I'm not saying they've balanced the scales 50/50 outside of anything other than these are a list of popular and well known players, I don't follow the scene close enough or care enough to know about them individually. 

    But I will say that the change up from the previous line up is either because they accept that they specifically picked male participants because of a bias against female participants or they are actively trying to get less known streamers out there. If it's the latter then that's totally fine but you're always going to them have the male streamers who are struggling who will feel like they aren't getting an opportunity simply because they are men. If its the former then you're openly admitting to bigotry. If its neither then it's likely that they are pandering. 

    Then you get the issue of colour representation and you can keep playing this game, there aren't enough people of colour. Sure, you've got women in there now but why arent there an equal amount of Asian and other minorities? So on and so on.

    This isn't a hearthstone issue, it's a much wider social issue so it's going to cause some friction somewhere. The problem with achieving equality of outcome is you are most likely going to discriminate against someone else in order to do it. It's an impossible game and one I'm glad I don't have to navigate on this sort of scale. You don't do anything, people are angry, you do something and different people are angry. It's fine for someone like Regis to step aside because he's very well set in terms of streaming and income but whoever you replace him with will be at the expense of someone else.

    I don't think it's controversial to say they are specifically trying to up their female representation, that seems fairly clear to me. But it doesn't make all the problems go away because you then have people excluded for things outside of their control as well and seeing as there are more deserving streamers than spots, someone is probably going to feel aggrieved.

    I'm a big fan of equal opportunity, not so much equality of outcome. If a person has done the right things to get an opportunity, they shouldn't be excluded because they are white or male or whatever. At the same time, you do need to foster an environment that allows all people a chance. If women aren't able to get to that position as easily then I understand the need to balance it out in some way. It's just difficult to do. The other difficulty is that having this conversation is really hard without each side shouting at each other. If everyone could hear out the concerns and talk it through, it may get more people on board but that means not dismissing anyone who doesn't necessarily agree, provided they are being respectful and aren't trolling or being abusive etc.

    For the record I am NOT saying that these women don't deserve to be there. I'm simply saying that I understand why some people could have the perspective that it is representation for the sake of representation, given the goings on at the last event and that female representation is suddenly 50/50 from 80/20, I get why people can see it like they are being put there for political reasons rather than pure merit.

    I personally feel chasing equality of outcome is a no win game and as I said, could easily see people accusing the line up of not having x or y represented enough. It can't realistically be achieved without discrimination of some sort and a struggling male streamer is mo less deserving of a spot simply because he's male, just as a female streamer shouldn't be excluded simply for being female either.

    I've recruited in the past and ended up with 8 out of 10 jobs being offered to men. It had nothing to do with the fact that they were men. I've had other recruitment drives where more women were offered jobs. If you go with the most competent people, you likely aren't going to get equal representation across gender and race. So when it is completely equal, it's always easy to assume it's for political reasons. 

     Yeah well I dont see many construction ladies working below the sun in summer dont me weong, people complain about equility if fancy jobs but in the crappy ones no lady wants even to try it.

     I swear I have never seen a man cleaning houses. It's always a woman.

    Men and women both have crappy jobs. They just have different ones.

    Btw, before you argue, a professional house cleaner can be forced to work for like 10 hours non-stop cleaning dozens of homes every day. At that point I almost take the construction place (besides the fact Im a dude).

    posted a message on Too many nerfs?

    Yep, if else, problem is how paladin gets such easily bonkers starts, and turn 5 conviction turns out to be a death sentence on pretty much 90% of situations you find yourself as a paladin.

    Don't know how to deal with it, maybee change the Northwatch guy, or the 1/1 spell draw guy, Conviction, or something.

    That said, so far my biggest concerns are both Tickatus, who so ar is not that great but any time control tries to rise will slaughter the whole thing,  and Spring Water of course. Refresh 1 mana, it's not that hard!

    We will never see the most iconic race for rogue class — undead ._. 
    Same goes for mage gnomes.
    At least weve got a tauren representive for druids.
    Also. Did they completely forgot about Pandarens? Goblins? Worgens? I mean, they would rather add Mogu or darn Tree as a hero.

     This is a Classic (actually BC) expansion.

    Also, adding Goblins and Worgen and Pandaren (let alone allied races such as Lightforged or Nightborne) would break the 1 race - 1 class

    Plus, Undead are also famous warlocks and Gnome are famous rogues.

    In fact, all race-class combinations depicted here are pretty damn common flavored.

    I was confused on why were they using the third person plural for Dawngrasp.

    Then again, the voice acting gave me not clue whether it was male or female, and the art is kinda confusing, so if it is non-binary, fine by me.

    I don't really like the character, but I don't hate it either, so if it works...

    The troll and the tauren ain't that bad either.

    Some encounters can be better with them than with Tamsin, even if shes often better.

    The belf is just bad.

    Thanks for your input guys. Now I only have one more question.

    When is the next mercenary going?

    posted a message on Mercenaries... just another Book?

    So, at first I want to point out, just in case, I post this on general because I'm not sure where does this thread belong otherwise.

    We had announcements on a mercenary mode for quite some weeks now. Today, I was pretty excited because I thought we would finally see what would it be.

    However, then the release for today turned out to be a book of heroes thing with the mercenaries as protagonists (in this case warrior).

    Is this all it is going to be? Or are we getting in the future a mercenary mode and this just works as an introduction to the characters?

    By that matter... what plans did Blizz have in mind for the mercenary mode, if such thing exists?

    Quote from Stalladir >>

    This!!! There will be basically no reason to run Ysera in Wild. The only way you get value from OG vs New is if you get her via random effects like Dream Portal from Ysera, Unleashed or evolve. My only guess is that Blizzard plan to revert this nerf once Ysera the Dreamer will leave the game next year.

     it could be worse, it could be Deathwing.

    Ok, I'm gonna play some standard.

    Find a aggro rogue. Dominate the whole game despite rogue pulling shit constantly out of its ass (like Secret Passage into hand dump-off into another Secret Passage). Finally get it to lethal range. Then rogue plays that minion who summons a minion based on weapon attack.. and surprise, it's Al'akir! Now my big minion dies, opponent can trade his board into mine, and still have a taunt so I can't just attack face with weapon and surviving minions. Two turns later, poor draws mean I get killed.

    Ok, enough standard, let's go to wild.

    Play Reno Shaman with N'zoth and shattered C'Thun against renolock. Somehow managed to not have any of my C'Thun pieces Tickatus'd, so I felt like this was the lucky day for me, even despite him drawing a lot of super good primes.In the end have the opponent at lethal range with my last minions. Opponent plays Solarian Prime. First seems all luck, no Flamestrike, Frost Nova or Blizzard ruining my day. Then turns out it did have cast Ice Block. The next turn played Hysteria on my buffed Shudderwock... and the only result that could lead me to lose the entire board thus the game, that's what happened.

    Who hurted you, Hearthstone, to make you this way?

    Does this really needs Overgrowth tho?

    Being a token deck, I guess it could have something that bolsters even more the token thing. Or that helps remove stuff or draw cards. Maybe Swipe?

    Why does it run Overgrowth?
