hearthstone Kripparrian on How He Would Improve Hearthstone

Well known Hearthstone streamer and YouTuber Kripparrian recently made a very well received video about the changes he would make to improve Hearthstone. He points out that last time he did this, some of the things he suggested were implemented very quickly, so he thought he'd give it another go.


Firstly he covers two things that he thinks are needed that Blizzard have previously said they are working on; Deckslots and Golden Portraits. He points out that it is four or five months since Blizzard mentioned more deck slots, and seven months since the first golden portraits were released. He suggests that if new players really are confused by new deck slots, then putting them behind a small pay wall would eliminate the issue, as only people who wanted them would purchase them.

He then moves onto things he feels would improve the game further. He notes that Tavern Brawl has been a success to the point that it is now a play mode in its own right. With that in mind he'd like to see wins recorded on the Quest Log page. He'd also like to see the format be permanent, rather than three days a week. To have that happen he suggests there could be two modes at once, constructed and preconstructed/random.

He wants Arena to be more accessible. He points out that the 150 gold cost includes effectively buying a pack, and feels that this aspect could be removed to make Arena only cost 50 gold. He thinks this would get more people involved in the game, and with less pressure to win back their gold, it would be more fun. He suggests there could be a higher payout mode for more serious players. He also suggests that if this suggestion isn't implemented, then Blizzard could give out Arena vouchers as quest rewards from time to time. Both the Brawl and the Arena suggestions tie in to him wanting people to experience the whole of Hearthstone more.

With regards to constructed play, he wants to improve bad cards, which is something he has mentioned before. He doesn't like the solution for improving cards like Magma Rager, where Blizzard printed Ice Rager. He would rather existing cards were buffed.

He also suggests that Treasure Goblins would be a great thing if they popped up occasionally instead of a queued opponent. He likes Treasure Goblins, which are used in other Blizzard games, and feels they should be everywhere!

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a repeat of Double Deathrattler Battler. It is a Brawl where you use your own cards to build a deck. Every Deathrattle will trigger twice.
      Although this is a repeat Brawl, it has been a long time since it was last used, September 2015 in fact, and many things in the game have changed since then. In that regard it can be treated as a fresh Brawl. I would like to see this idea of waiting a long time between reusing a Brawl be implemented more often, to help keep them fresh.
      On top of trying to win games, I expect lots of people to have fun experimenting with Weasel Tunneler, as many of its interactions do not work correctly, as per our previous article.

      It does seem as if cards from the Curse of Naxxramas adventure will be very good in this Brawl. Baron Rivendare doesn't stack however, meaning you don't get four times the Deathrattles if he is in play!

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.
