In this week's Hearthstone Video of the Week, we bring you an entertaining video from TotalBiscuit. If you've ever wondered how a deck made up almost entirely of Epic cards plays out, here is your answer!


In this week's Hearthstone Video of the Week, we present you an entertaining video from TotalBiscuit. If you've ever wondered what playing a deck with as many Epic cards as possible is like, then you have got your answer (spoiler alert: it's not as bad as it sounds)!
 
As we said last week, we do intend to focus more on educational videos in this series, and we will do so in the future, but for now we just couldn't help ourselves.

      Orange has signed for Swedish organisation, Alliance, one of the major European esports organisations.
      It has been a rough time for teams recently, with Dignitas, Hearthlytics, and NaVi all parting ways with their Hearthstone teams. To see a team like Alliance signing Orange is great for the health of the game. The official announcement can be seen on Alliance's website.
      Placeholder for tweet 781194229435535360 Hopefully this is the first of many new signings, both for Alliance, and in general. With several great free agents currently on the market, notably Xixo, Hoej, and Ostkaka, there is plenty of opportunity for teams to invest in Hearthstone. Teams should also be encouraged by the balance changes announced earlier in the day, with the game seemingly aiming to focus more on skillful play being more impactful.

      Blizzard have announced major balance changes to Hearthstone, including changes to Yogg-Saron, and Tuskarr Totemic.
      Blizzard have announced major balance changes to Hearthstone, including changes to Yogg-Saron, and Tuskarr Totemic.
      Players have been complaining more than usual about the state of the randomness in Hearthstone for some time now, with Tuskarr Totemic and Yogg-Saron, Hope's End being the major targets. On top of that, Shaman has been getting more and more powerful, and difficult to deal with. Blizzard have taken the opportunity to adjust these cards, lower the power level of Shaman, and have tidied up a few other issues. I have outlined the changes with my views below, the official views can be found on Blizzard's blog.

      Tuskarr Totemic allowed for huge swings based on the result of the random effect. The three non-basic Totems, Mana Tide Totem, Flametongue Totem, and Totem Golem usually led to substantially better board states then the four basic Totems. The card will still be playable in Totem based decks, but it will no longer win anywhere near as many games just through a lucky roll.

      One of the most controversial cards ever, Yogg-Saron, Hope's End, has been drastically reduced in power. Although the card text stays the same, the way it functions will be different. I'll let the design team's words speak for this one:
      Blizzard
      We didn't want to nerf it so much that it couldn't still be a fun card for players who currently love Yogg. Yogg-Saron will now stop casting spells if, during Yogg-Saron’s battlecry, it is destroyed, silenced, transformed, or returned to its owner’s hand.  We tried a bunch of things and we think this is a significant enough nerf that it could reduce the amount it gets seen (especially in tournaments), while still maintaining the dream for people who love the card.
      Rockbiter Weapon is very powerful. Not only does it combine well with Doomhammer and Al'Akir the Windlord for huge closing damage, but it also allows Shaman to control the early game. Often this early control snowballs so much that there is very little the opponent can do. Stopping this will slow the Class down substantially, and should make Shaman builds a lot less frustrating to play against.

      When I first saw the Preview for Call of the Wild, I speculated that Animal Companion was going to be nerfed. Usually a card in Hearthstone that does the job of two or more cards, costs the total of the casting costs, plus one extra for each addition card that it represents. In the case of Call of the Wild that means it should cost the three threes from Animal Companion, plus two more. Eleven. The way that the game actually flows should mean that a nerf to nine is fine, but I think many people will be glad that Hunter has lost the turn seven coin, Call of the Wild win condition now. Hunter will now have to find a way to bridge the gap from Savannah Highmane on turn six, until Call of the Wild.

      Alongside Shaman, Warrior has also been incredibly powerful and versatile recently. Although this nerf is a surprise to me, I think it is a welcome one. A slower controlling deck should still be able to make good use of Execute, but aggressive decks won't have the luxury of turning their opponent's minions into speed bumps any more. I think this is a good change for the game.

      Another surprising change, but another good one. People don't like losing to decks that they can't interact with, and this kills off One Turn Kill Raging Worgen as a deck. With all the problems that the keyword Charge has given the game over the time, I've mentioned to friends, a little frivolously, if we'll see the keyword change eventually, or if the cards will keep being nerfed one at a time.

      Another surprising, but welcome, change to a card. Blizzard have stated they'd like to see a little less aggro, and that Abusive Sergeant is in nearly every aggressive deck at the moment. Although this seems like a small change, we saw the difference one Attack made to Knife Juggler, and I think we'll find that Abusive Sergeant not trading up the turn after it is played will mean it is far less powerful.
      These changes should be in place for the Last Call Qualifiers in October, and it will be exciting to see what the players come up with for those very important tournaments.
      Let us know your thoughts as to how these will impact the game!

      DrHippi has won the Europe Summer Championship by beating GeorgeC in the final. He is the tenth qualifier for the World Championships at BlizzCon in November.
      DrHippi and GeorgeC came into the event as the two biggest names, as we highlighted in our preview. Each of the players had already reached a Championship event in 2016, and their meeting in the final was something many people wanted to see. They are both known for their strong Freeze Mage play, and DrHippi surprised everyone by bringing Tempo Mage to the event. This was rewarded at the start of the final as he beat GeorgeC's Freeze Mage to take the early lead.
      GeorgeC struggled to get a win with his Mage, and proceeded to fall 3-0 behind after losing to Shaman and Druid, before finally averting the sweep by taking a victory over Rogue. The deficit was too large to overcome however, and DrHippi took the match 4-2. GeorgeC will have another chance to qualify for BlizzCon at the Last Call event in October. DrHippi will have his chance to get revenge on Naiman at BlizzCon. Naimain beat him in the Winter Championship final.
      The decklists for the event are available on Blizzard's blog

      IGN have conducted a very interesting interview with Designers Mike Donais and Dean Ayala regarding the health of Hearthstone at the moment.
      The article covers a lot of the questions that have been raised by the community recently. Donais admits there is more Shaman on ladder than he would like right now, but seems comfortable waiting to see if it dies down when players stop experimenting with new builds (Presumably with regards to Spirit Claws). He talks a bit about Priest, and the implication is that Priest will probably be helped in the next set.
      He also comments on Yogg-Saron, Hope's End, saying "Yogg-Saron is definitely on our radar." This is probably no real cause for excitement just yet, but it's good to see that they are taking a look. The whole article, in fact, is a reminder of how much the design team are constantly monitoring all kinds of statistics. It is also good that they are aware of which current decks that require high skill caps, as many players believe that Hearthstone needs high skill cap decks to be credible as an esport.
      Iksar  (Dean Ayala)
      Yeah, like the Raging Worgen Warrior, Anyfin Paladin, Miracle Rogue, Freeze Mage is still being played, and this Malygos Druid, and all of those decks are very very complex, and all have some amount of success on ladder right now.  The second half of the article talks in-depth about the how the changes to the Arena were made. As always, it is fascinating to read how the design team reaches their decisions.

      Trolden has released episode 185 of his Funny and Lucky Moments series.
      I mentioned in my review of episodes 183 and 184 that I thought the quality had gone up recently, and this episode continues the trend. There are a couple of Yogg clips, but the animations provided hint that Trolden knows that these are almost at self-parody levels now. 
      The first clip is spectacular, and very much in keeping with the last two weeks. I'm also always a big fan of people being punished for their mistakes, as the Shaman is in the later clip. 
      With the first mentions from Blizzard that Yogg-Saron, Hope's End is being looked at, Trolden might have to make the most of Yogg while he can.
