I'm happy they bought the adventure idea back, but honestly, the story and card art is going way far from what it should be - which is dungeons and dragons derivative- what WoW was, what warcraft 3 was. It's too goofy, too colourful, not dark or violent or sexy enough. Meh, I guess the game has been going this way for a long time, but i don't like it.

BGs cuts out an element of RNG in the way the the arena did - the better players tend to do better over time. In regular constructed I have to take losses against timmys I could do nothing about because they drew the nuts/hard countered me/horrible RNG/they, like 80% of others are playing the msot broken meta deck out there that compensates for having no real clue how to play the game properly/etc etc
...then on top of this I have to sit there and take it becasue, fucking hell is the game slow compared to battlegrounds. Glacially slow in fact.
BGs needs new cards, and alterations to stay fresh - currently people are getting rather tired of seeing huge demons...poisonous or bust stopped being fun, but yeah they'll change it up again soon.
More than anything I just can't cope with how slow main hearthstone is anymore, thanks to BGs. It's not ok to be that slow, when I'm sometimes in games I know for 90% sure i have lost, maybe as early as turn 2 or 3...but I have to play it out....and...jesus, where is my will to live going....going....going....

Jaraxxus is borderline busted with demons, pressing the hero power every turn makes him insanely powerful but he soiuffers from 2 things. The first one is obvious, you're pretty much forced to go demons or you're obviously wasting the hero, so that makes him very specific which isn't the best. The other problem comes as a consecuence of the first one: Demon builds are not very reliable in the sense that they are heavy luck dependant. You have to get Wrath Weaver early as he'll probably be your biggest minion, then you need to get Floating Watchers early so they get buffed fast and grow big and last you need Soul Juggler, he's the difference between losing a game an winning comfortably, at least on the early to mid turns. Malganis is important but not as much as getting the other stuff.
Demon builds are nothing more than piles of stats so you need to get your big boys early so you can make them grow, otherwise demons can't go past top 4. That being said Jaraxxus would obviously benefit from that 0/1 but that wouldn't make him particularly better tbh.
I've played many games with jaraxxus, this is just wrong. He is weak as a demons player and therefore weak in general - Patchwork...Lich...AFK...hell, almost anyone is a beter demons player - the 2 mana price for the buff is too expensive, on an archetype that it is super easy to create piles of stats with anyway, making the hero power redundant. Even at 1 mana it wouldn't feel anything like as good as Tirion's.

I just finished second to a guy with two wrath weavers at over 100/100, and a couple of watchers, one was even bigger. Posion is the only coutner to that shit, literally nothing else will work, mechs, beasts, tirion neutrals, danced daryl minions, vancleefed cleaves....nothing, literally nothing except posion divine murlocs would work against it.
This is not fun. At all. Especially when you add in the fact that you need to be tier 5 with tripples or six to set up the murlocs...this ISN'T FUCKING POSSIBLE with demon builds hitting you for 20 fucking damage every time they win.
Its time for a change, demons have had their moment in the sun...they suck. As many have said ebfore, BGs is great but the change needs to be continual, the shake up needs to be continual...we have already had demons on top for too lnog and its getting really quite annoying.
Edit - I will add that machine-gun demons are way cooler, and much less annoying to lose to IMO - but people have worked out they just aren't as good/reliable as straight up fat stat demons, even after the buff.

I have been playing since the start, I have a good collection. I have been to legend in both ladders. I have over 3000 arena wins. I'm pretty fucking good at battlegrounds too. Just sayin...I'm no noob.
I hate big/res priest with a passion. Probably always will - but I am largely talking about wild. It reduces the game to a cowclicker for both players. There is no other deck arechetype that has a such a negative affect on gameplay. Everytime they print a card for standrad res priest there is a risk it slots into it's wild big/res brother and makes it even more degenerate. Yes I am aware it doesn't always do well in the meta- it fluctuates over time, regardless....I don't care about the winrate, or whether I win or lose. It's the gameplay.

You're a Dad who lost all his free time, only has time for a few games of hearthstone and you're giving that up as well. Don't fuck about man, it's time to start your mid-life crisis now - you get one life, and you deserve some free time and a hobby, so if its not hearthstone its time to start playing something else. Those little monsters you're raising won't make you happy, and its not even their fault- the world is on the verge of turning upside down, we've got maybe 20 years before full blown water security wars start over what is left of our polluted, overpopulated shithole...
Find some escapism and enjoy the ride like everyone else, you deserve it.

I would say competitive standard is superior to compettive wild - but casual wild is miles better than casual standard - and I don't mean actual 'casual mode', I mean just staying in the lower ranks and playing decks you built yourself or stuff that is fun, rather than a meta deck you copied. There is also much more potetional in wild to take one of these self made decks and climb with it if that is what you want to do.
Honestly though, in terms of gameplay both modes are inferrior to both arena and battlegrounds IMO. BGs make constructed play feel so goddam slow these days.

Do we even really need another round of nerfs right now? Asking as I honestly don't know - I play mainly BGs these days (the real needed nerf is the turn timer, holy shit does constructed feel slow now) , but when doing a bit of ladder for dailies I'm seeing what seems like a healthy mix of decks - not like it was before, where every other match was vs shaman.

After getting used to the speed on battlegrounds regular play feels so goddam slow.
Seriously, i have to waste so much time while in regular play, I'm just not sure I can go back to it properly anymore - its too damn slow. If they won't do something about the rope we need a new mode, a faster mode, that still counts as ranked or competitive.
And yes, it's way too hard for new players to get into the game- I competed the classic set like 2 years ago now, without ever buying any classic packs - it's about time they gave the classic set away to new players IMO.

For Wild, yes it is deeply unhealthy - the mode hit a critical mass of res stuff with vargoth long ago, and barnes before that. The 'big res priest' archetype is the least fun to play against of any wild archetype IMO, regardless of its power level which fluctuates a lot if you are just talking about meta winrates. The gameplay it produces is a waste of time, for both players involved IMO.
For standard it's a different matter - but everytime they print a card for standard that slots in to it, there is a risk of it making it's wild brother even more degenerate.
