hearthstone Kripparrian on How He Would Improve Hearthstone

2 posts in this topic


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!

      The new build adds 35 new dailies, buffs to Murlocs, bug fixes and preparations for future content!
      A new patch has hit the Hearthstone servers, preparing the ground for the upcoming Heroic Tavern Brawl and bringing new dailies, changes to Murloc cards, achievements and more!
      As we've already said, this build added some textures for the Heroic Tavern Brawl (which were datamined by Hearthpwn) and it also adds  the BlizzCon 2016 card back. Moreover, Murloc cards that affected ALL Murlocs now only affect friendly ones. There are also several bug fixes. Here are the patch notes:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      In this Hearthstone update, we're making balance changes to several cards and fixing several bugs. Read on for details!
      Ethereal Peddler now reads “Battlecry: If you’re holding any non-Rogue class cards, reduce their Cost by (2).” This was done to make it more clear, especially with upcoming releases. The following Murlocs that affected ALL Murlocs now only affect friendly ones, to improve the Murloc mirror-match. These cards are not eligible for a full dust refund. Grimscale Oracle now reads “Your other Murlocs have +1 Attack.” Coldlight Seer now reads “Battlecry: Give your other Murlocs +2 Health.” Murloc Tidecaller now reads “Whenever you summon a Murloc, gain +1 Attack.” Murloc Warleader now reads “Your other Murlocs have +2/+1.” One Night in Karazhan cards will now show up with the same frequency as other card sets in the Arena The following bugs have been squashed: Yogg-Saron, Hope’s End now properly applies the Overload effect when it casts a spell with Overload. Sir Finley Mrrgglton no longer offers Lesser Heal as an option of Hero Powers to Discover when played by Tyrande. Casting Entomb on a transformed minion will no longer reveal the minion’s identity if it gets drawn again. Gladiator’s Longbow now properly prevents damage caused by Explosive Trap. The following card back has been added: Welcome Inn – Acquired by attending BlizzCon 2016 or purchasing a Virtual Ticket for BlizzCon 2016. Many new daily quests have been added. For more information, including a more comprehensive list of bug fixes, please visit our Forums.
      (source) What are these new daily quests? Well, they were datamined (along with a lot of other stuff) by Hearthpwn. In total, the new dailies are around 35 in number! The 40 Gold ones involve playing 30 class cards for each class. There is a variety of new 50 Gold quests;  their concept involves around playing a specific amount of a particular archetype or kind of cards, like Play 20 Beasts, Play 10 Weapons or Play 15 Overload Minions. The 60 Gold quests require you to play 50 class cards. Lastly, there are two new 100 Gold quests: Murlocalypse - Play 75 Murlocs and Cry Havoc - Play 75 Battlecry minions.
      Other datamined data include three new achievements that award three Classic card packs each:
      Return of the Hero - Defeat the 3 challengers! Ready for Action - Play 30 cards in Play mode Back in the Game! - Deal 100 damage to enemy heroes There are also six achievements, awarding The Grand Tournament packs, that are tied to the BlizzCon promotion - we will discuss this in another article!
      Ultimately, a returning player challenge with three missions has appeared, as well as a possible Innkeeper challenge.

      So Blizzard gave us the opportunity to choose and root for a player during the HS World Championship 2016.
      You win in-game prizes for every win they get. Everyone gets a pack for just picking one of the contenders. 
      So who's your pick?

      ShiftCon has arrived for the second time in the Hearthstone tavern!
      It was announced yesterday that we wouldn't be getting the Heroic Tavern Brawl this week. The possible dates for it are either October 26 (next week) or November 2.
      Instead, we are getting a repeat brawl: ShiftCon. Your deck is filled with Shifter Zerus and some random class spells, while you start at 3 mana. This Tavern Brawl offers a good balance of skill and luck, since you have to decide if you should play your transformed Zerus at the given turn (if you can) or hold on to it.
      With the preparations for the Heroic Tavern Brawl underway, it was expected that we would be getting a repeat brawl this week. This is the 71th Tavern Brawl.
