Damn, this game is being monetized to bits.
As someone playing since the beginning of time (closed beta... ok, technically the beginning for us was alpha, but had no key back then. Anyways... sorry for that ) I am glad, that more and more stuff is added, because I got really burned out from standard. With all the new ways to monetize the game, new game modes were introduced, which dont produce enough money to get hs alive like packs or the new tavern pass do.
That being said, I still hate the legendary drop rate in this game and the high dust cost, but the f2p reward track really gives us more gold than before. I barely touch standard these days and still have like 12k gold to spend on the next expansion.
