hearthstone Hearthstone: Hoej’s Reddit Post, Blue Tweets

1 post in this topic


Frederik "Hoej" Nielsen made an extensive post on Reddit about consistency and RNG. On another social medium, namely Twitter, the community got answers to some of their questions.


Hoej got some attention yesterday when he posted a lengthy article on Reddit with his thoughts on RNG in Hearthstone. The gist of the article is that RNG doesn’t define how good a player is. Most skilled players make calculated plays depending on the situation they are currently in. Losing because your opponent topdecked the perfect card is a matter of luck; it is a matter of skill when you don’t make the optimal play. Therefore, Hearthstone players should distinguish whether it was RNG that made them lose a game or whether they actually didn’t make the correct choices. The article has received praise from various Hearthstone devs via their Twitter accounts; you can read it here.


Speaking of Twitter, Ben Brode was mostly active these days and he took the time to answer a few questions. The main issues covered are the following:


1.  Why Hearthstone doesn’t track higher than 500 wins


2. Deck slots are still coming...


3. Thoughts on introducing new tribal synergies


4. Other


Lastly, a tweet from the official Hearthstone account caught our attention. Faceless Manipulator is one of the minions that isn’t affected by Brann Bronzebeard’s effect – which makes sense, since it has a targeted Battlecry. However, judging from the following tweet, this may not be intended or perhaps they weren’t sure how to respond at that time. It’s definitely fascinating discovering all these Brann Bronzebeard interactions!

      Year of the Mammoth Arena Guide now available!
      Our Arena Guide has been updated by Pesty, to fully reflect the format for The Year of the Mammoth.
      As well as the new tier list for classes, the guide addresses each class in detail, so that you can get the most out of your Arena draft. It also discusses which Mana curves work well with which class, and how to pick on your opponents' likely weaknesses.
      The new Tier List is shown below:
      Tier 1 (Excellent): Mage, Rogue Tier 2 (Great): Paladin, Hunter Tier 3 (Good): Druid, Priest, Shaman, Warlock, Tier 4 (Average): Warrior For any feedback or questions about this guide, check out our Hearthstone General Discussion Forum, or comment in this thread.

      The 97th Tavern Brawl is called 'An Ancient Recipe' and it offers players the chance to try out Journey to Un'Goro decks.
      The rules of this Brawl are simple: you choose a hero and you get a premade deck with the Un'Goro deck recipe for that class. The deck archetypes are the following and we even have guides for most of them:
      Quest Druid Dinomancer Hunter Elemental Mage (guide for almost identical deck here) Quest Paladin Quest Priest Quest Rogue Elemental Shaman Quest Warlock Quest Warrior All deck recipes have pretty good winning chances. This is a nice chance to play with cards you don't own and get to know the new Hearthstone expansion better.
