hearthstone Hearthstone Nerfs Are Now Live With Latest Patch

9 posts in this topic

The latest patch has introduced the nerfs announced a few days ago.


Introducing the nerfs a day or so early has created a strange metagame. Druid has taken a huge hit, with no new cards to replace the old ones, and so Murloc Paladin is having a day in the sun while Old Murk-Eye is still available. It is also interesting to note that decks that previously ran Big Game Hunter are still doing so. There are players who still have access to the pre-nerf cards by not logging out, but you are unable to queue into those people.

Nerfed cards can now be disenchanted for full dust value. This value is 40 for Commons, 100 for Rares and 400 for Epics. If the cards are golden, those numbers become 400,800, and 1600. Be sure to dust these cards, as you can always recraft the ones you need later.

The patch has also introduced a new game board and a new emote. "Wow" has replaced "Sorry". I think most people will be glad to not have to hear Jaina's apologies in the future.

The card backs for the next three months have also been revealed. The names for May, June, and July's card backs are Shadowmoon Valley, Zul'Drak, and Halfhill respectively.

I thought the nerfs were sad, but when I read that "Sorry" is removed, I finally know what true sadness feels like. Goodbye saltiness, ultimate BM and opponent's fear and desperation, you will be missed. 

At least Stampeding Kodo and Gladiator Longbow are fixed now.

Nah, clearly the mage "Hello" is the new most trolly emote :P

 

I always make sure to annoy-o-jaina any secret paladins I face on my freeze mage.

"Amazing" just doesn't have the power of "My Apologies." Even though there are heroes that "benefit" from the change, mage is crying in the corner. That is actually the reason I stopped playing my casino mage. Jainy just isn't playable anymore. 

Seriously though, I don't see a reason to remove Sorry. Players can always squelch their opponents, so why not keep it for those who love BM?

As usual, the hearthstone community insists of being a bunch of precious crybabies who are incapable of using common sense and blizzard will always cater to what the bigger crowd wants/complains about.

From what I know about the Tracer pose drama, it doesn't even have to be a bigger group. It doesn't even have to be a reasonable demand (the game is Pegi12 for a reason). I don't actually know what leads to their decision to remove or change stuff. They probably just change anything people cry about, which is not really way to go. Last time, we lost a deck, this time we lose a part of culture, who knows what we will lose next. Alas, such is blizzard's power to change fate. Melodrama aside, it's stupid that they change something that most players are okay with, and a not-so-small group of players actually use and love.

Yes! Now I can attack face with longbow...not really.

As a player of control hunter, I actually appreciate it. The bug lost me a game or two (only counting those I would have won otherwise).

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
