    Add the Classic mode. The only problem I see is a long queue times. And that's probably the reason why they don't do this.

    posted a message on Potential Golden Card Upgrade Feature Datamined

    When you care about the best play possible, you just don't see that even yours cards are golden. What you see when you look at your golden card without even noticing that it is golden, is the value that card provides or should you play it in this exact situation or other things like this. It happens naturally, at least for me.

    Im not sure if im complaining or its just funny.  But what happend with the value of cards ? They are like 3x better then before.

    I dont even know whats happening on the board cus im laughing at all the value that happends lol

     

     Power creep. In order to incentivize players to purchase packs of cards from the latest expansions and to effectively move the game forward, Team 5 has progressively increased the power level of new cards over the last several years. This is something that happens in virtually every TCG and is perfectly normal and reasonable to expect. Ultimately, doing this is in the interest of the players and the longevity/profitability of the game.

     But over the last few years value of cards has grown exponentially. And that is the point.

    You should take more notes for the games that you lose. For example, on which turn did you start losing in tempo? Did you make any mistakes? On What turn did you have to make a serious decision and what did you pick? Would your second choice have prevented you from losing? etc. When i first grinded for legend i would write (brief) notes of all my turns and highlight when i lost or gained the upper hand. I learned a lot by reviewing my playstyle like that. 

     Yep. Only when I started to analyze my games turn-by-turn I made that final push from D5 to Legend. And as a bonus by doing that you gain confidence and losing anxiety as you switching your focus from results to making the best moves possible each turn.

    Quote from FortyDust >>

    By the way, once you have every Merc, you may want to save your packs for when they add more to the game. It's a bit wasteful to open them now for nothing but random coins and portraits when you could open them later for new Mercs.

     Although if you are hunting for those diamond portraits, this would be your best chance to get them. It's that way of thinking that you could farm future mercenaries anyway, but you wil not be able to farm those shiny portraits. Of course if you care.

    The chances are still low though. It's every 20th pack in average and that's for just 10% for a diamond portrait to pop up.

    I mean it's good that they try to make the game less about grinding, but where are my coins then?

    They are not trying to make the game less about grinding, they are trying to sell you packs where your coins are.

    Obviously. You need a task which is not completed yet for a mercenary if you want to receive coins.

    Quote from Strongpoint >>

    What is the point of collecting mercenaries if having top tier is unnecessary for high rank? 1) Some (many) players like the collecting aspect itself 2) Beating highest tier bounties in heroic mode.

     Sure, but I mean from Blizzard perspective. Very few players will spend money for beating pve content in this game or for the collecting aspect. They have to convince you to spend a lot of money and they can only do this through pvp side of the mode. And if this will be through pvp, then it will surely be not even-strength matches. They can say you, that, look, your characters have the same levels as opponent's, why isn't this an even-strength match?  But your rare team will compete against legendaries, or their mercenaries will be with fully leveled abilities and equip, and so on. There are a lot of questions about that.

    Conclusion: pre-order packs = PAY FOR FUN! Even if you buy all pre-orders your just getting a large variety of Mercs but not much power. If you want to PAY 2 WIN you need to buy over a 1000 packs!!! I dont think the amount of whales who do this will ruin PVP. But obviously the top spots in the rankings will be reserverd for whales/streamers.

    You are ignoring that teams are matched by strength so they will be matched with each other and will have no advantage in gaining top spots in the rankings

     I believe they also mentioned a similar to their other modes MMR-system, which this mode will have. And this is quite opposite of what they say that it should be more or less equal strength teams. I am aware that you will face equal strength teams only in the beginning, and then when your mmr-rating will increase you will face more and more powerful teams. Because otherwise what is the point of collecting mercenaries and spending money if you could be the best and climb ranks with what you have in equal-strength battles?
