hearthstone Hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Cloneball

6 posts in this topic


This week's Tavern Brawl is called "Cloneball". It is the 52nd Tavern Brawl.

In Cloneball, each player picks a class, and is given a deck with random Legendary cards cloned four times. Each player also gets a card called Offensive Play which allows the next Legendary you play, and all copies of it, to be played for 3 less mana.


Although I am generally a fan of Brawls where you don't have to use your own cards, I don't feel that this particular one is one of their best efforts. Many games seem to come down to one player having a cheap legendary such as a Millhouse Manastorm (Which, by the way, has virtually no downside in this Brawl), while the other player sits unable to do anything. It should still make for some amusing moments, but I suspect that many players will find it too frustrating for much repeat play.

This is hands-down the most irritating and pointless Tavern Brawl they've done.  It's just like "We rolled a dice.  There is no strategy whatsoever.  You lose."  There's NO BALANCE AT ALL.

Blizzard: at the point at which I'm only playing the brawl for the pack, and for no other reason, and even with that carrot I still don't want to play, you're doing it wrong.  Wrong on roller skates.  Wrong on stilts.  Wrong in a cheap suit.  Thinking up ways of describing how wrong you've been is more fun that playing your wrong brawl.  Keep the pack.  I don't need it this badly.

I played a handful of games and it seems I either completely destroy my opponent or they completely destroy me.  Not very many competitive games.

I did have an interesting match where I used the Offensive Play to throw out a couple of Lorewalker Chos.   It escalated pretty quickly as my opponent couldn't remove them right away and we took turns flooding each other with more Offensive Play cards and Coins.

Other than that, its been kind of meh...

This is pure RNG and nonsense brawl, but Hogger is good in this brawl, so, I like the brawl. Anyway, the player who draws Offensive Play as first will win. It's like, the player who drops the first midrange or big legendary almost always wins.

Apparently Millhouse Manastorm took a break from riding your opponent's Piloted Shredders and decided to walk on foot instead. 

Brawl has a cool idea behind it but doesn't work. Thanks for a free pack.

This brawl is a load of bullshit. Just waiting until you're the one that gets lucky and collect the pack, then never touch the brawl again.

      For the past few days, top players have been discussing the pros and cons of the new MMR change at Legend Ranks. The only problem being, that Game Designer, Iksar, isn't aware of a change.
      There are far fewer Legendary players than usual this season, and as such things might feel a little different to the players, but the sample size across many streams and thousands of games of Hearthstone seems to point to the changing of the matchmaking system. It has been accepted by most that the system has changed so that you only play opponents in a very narrow band, rather than the previous system where you could be matched with someone with a wildly different Legend Rank.
      That alone might not have been enough evidence, but players are also queuing into the same opponent multiple times, to the point that they are having to play mind games on which deck to queue.

      Hoej independently witnessed the same thing, and went to Twitter to check that he was not alone. Several Legendary players agreed that the system has been changed, and people began to discuss what they thought of the changes.
      Placeholder for tweet 834430686325067776 The majority of players like the new matchmaking, although several did voice concerns that the new system heavily favours the players who reach Legend Rank early in the season. Just as the debate was getting interesting, Iksar dropped his bombshell:
        At this point there are several options, and all seem unlikely. Either the entire community is suffering from some kind of huge matchmaking fluctuation, Blizzard have made a major change without informing Iksar, or there is a bug which most people preferred to the actual game. Whatever happens, the reply when Iksar has investigated is sure to be interesting!

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
