Ben Brode Streamed Hearthstone on Twitch Last Night

Hearthstone's Senior Game Designer, Ben Brode, streamed live on Twitch on Tuesday night. Unfortunately there is no VoD of the event. It was a short Hearthstone stream and he played at rank 25. The stream peaked at around 1320 viewers and lasted forty minutes. It was titled: "New F2P Account!".


Brode, who admitted he didn't know much about streaming, apparently struggled to keep up with a very spammy chat on his first attempt. Anyone who has seen a busy Twitch chat will not be surprised by this. He did find the time to mention that they have tested some community made cards. He gave an example of a card called "Spirit Healer" in Shaman. There are two versions of this card that I can find, and it is not clear which one was tested, but it is good that they are looking at community efforts. They also tested a card that puts the last spell you cast back into your hand, but it kept putting itself back into the hand. It seems odd they couldn't fix this, so it was probably just an amusing anecdote rather than the reason it wasn't printed.

Hopefully he will take the time to stream again now that he knows what to expect. He only played one game, which he won. It is likely that this was a test for the future. He appeared to be having fun, so hopefully he takes some feedback and advice, sets up a stricter chat, and is back sooner rather than later.

Dear Ben Brode,

 

next time you make up some "fun" and "new" thing like the "exciting" standard format - pls dont. 

 

Thank You,

 

Best regards

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.

      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Bearshark and Hadronox were just revealed!
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bearshark

      Houndmaster should probably be renamed to Bearsharkmaster because it curves out just perfectly into an Elusive minion that's going to be difficult to remove. Since hunters don't use spells to buff their own minions, Elusive isn't actually going to be a downside. This seems like it'll make for a solid addition to any hunter deck.
      Hadronox

      The current rendition of Ramp druid runs 5 to 6 Taunt minions, but plays very greedy with cutting long-time staples of the class such as Druid of the Claw. Could this fit the deck? I don't know; Hadronox requires you to have drawn your few Taunters and played them, something Ramp doesn't always get to do by nature. Ramping this minion is actually pretty bad because its Deathrattle simply won't trigger then. Let's see if another Taunt minion ends up being printed for druid; otherwise, I can't say this card will be popular.

      The Mage Legendary from Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed, and it is called Sindragosa. It is the seventeenth card to be revealed from the upcoming expansion.
      Sindragosa is an interesting card, and a difficult one to evaluate. It is also worth noting that it is a Dragon.

      Sindragosa provides plenty of value. It is a very slow minion, but we have recently seen with Medivh, the Guardian, that slow value is very playable in the correct deck. Value Mage has been a feature of the Journey to Un'Goro meta under various names, and there is no reason to believe that will change after Knights of the Frozen Throne is released. The main obstacle to it seeing play will be the competition from cards such as Archmage Antonidas and Medivh, and whether there are enough slots available in decks for multiple high Mana cards. 
      This is a card that we can expect to be tested on multiple live streams in the early days of the expansion. At the very least, it is another card that will allow people with smaller collections to play with some of the most powerful cards in the game. What Sindragosa's future is beyond that, is difficult to predict. Feel free to post your predictions in this thread!
