Ben Brode, Yong Woo, and Zeriyah have responded to some of the common concerns and questions related to the addition of new formats to Hearthstone.


One of the concerns, originally mentioned by Brian Kibler in his video, has been posed to Ben Brode on Twitter. Kibler is of the belief that rotating cards in and out of the Classic and Basic sets for a year at a time would be a good thing. Blizzard had previously implied that will not happen, choosing instead to nerf problematic cards from those sets. Brode responded on Twitter:



As Standard is going to be the format of choice for Blizzard tournaments, including the World Championship, players are concerned that Wild will be unbalanced and ignored.



A connected concern is that of reprints. If there is no core rotation, then people are interested to know if cards might be reprinted in future sets. Brode again clarified:



Yong Woo later gave a slightly different take on reprints, specifically with regards to adventures.



On the Battle.net forums, Zeriyah answered the concern that people who recently invested in GvG, or crafted golden cards that are rotating out, feel that they are getting a bad deal. Many in the community have suggested that a short term bonus on dusting those cards might make things easier on those people. Without ruling out a partial bonus, Zeriyah did make it seem that it would be unlikely to happen.

Finally, Brode clarified that no decision has yet been made regarding Old Murk-Eye, Captain's Parrot, Gelbin Mekkatorque, and Elite Tauren Chieftain. The first two are earned for owning all of the core Murlocs or Pirates respectively. The latter two cannot be opened in packs, and the gold versions cannot be crafted, due to promotions early in Hearthstone's existence.
