Brawl: Storming Stormwind

Recommended Posts

PFNWtBk.jpg

This week's Tavern Brawl is called Storming Stormwind. It is a solo Brawl, in which you try to do as much damage to the computer controlled enemy as possible.

Storming Stormwind is the 60th Tavern Brawl, but it is the first Brawl where the player plays against the AI of the computer. The idea of the Brawl is to inflict as much damage as possible on Stormwind. The City of Stormwind starts with 1 Health, which increases as you damage it.

The City has two main defenses. It has an Armory, and a Barracks.

The purpose of the Armory is to have synergy with the random Stormwind Soldiers. The available Stormwind Soldiers are shown below.

As long as you complete the game without conceding, it will always count as a win. The Brawl is good fun, and it is good to see Blizzard try a new concept. Also of note is the Battle Standard, furthering some hints we saw in the One Night in Kharazan teaser, that positioning might become more important in the future.

What is the highest score you have achieved? Let us know in the comments below!

I managed to get up to 91 damage using a pirate warrior deck, using weapons and minions to take out his minions while the frothing berzerkers piled up the bonuses. Lasted to round 10.

Do mind that the AI has a couple of extra cards on top the Swordsmen and Shieldmen to play. It seems particularly fond of using the Rusty Horn Spare Part on big Swordsmen.

I managed to get to 128 damage. Got a huge C'Thun out thanks to a couple of Brann Bronzebeard boosted minions that cleared the board. Then the AI dropped Shieldmen for a couple of turns, which C'Thun quickly eliminated while letting me get a huge board of my own and deal a lot of damage. Once C'Thun went down, though, I was quickly overwhelmed.

I managed to get to 612 damage. 

I lucked out with warrior and actually pulled of a Kel'thuzad/Emperor cobra/faceless manipulator combo, plus few taunts.

With cobras I was clearing his swordsmans, with manipulator I got his swordsman which got increasing bonus from castle everytime it got revived increasing its damage, and Kel'thuzad revived my cobras and taunts every turn. 

I actually fatigued the castle, I lost when I got deep into fatigue myself :) 

I could have scored even more, did some stupid miscalculations on reviving. 

Had lots of luck anyhow...

The only reason I like this brawl is that it's easy to complete my daily quests.  To that end, I am using my creative genius (*cough*) to make decks that hurt me the fastest.  Is this what the Blizz-Genies intended?

Ultimately, I find this brawl fairly pointless, because the win condition (for me) is to lose.  I have no interest in maximizing my eventual defeat against an unstoppable foe.

It's also a shame the AI is so stupid.  It silences Flame Imps.  It places it's "on either side" buff at the end.  It creates minions when it has lethal already.  (Unless they programmed in BM on purpose.)

I managed 380 damage with Bloodlust Shaman, seems that if you reach 1000 damage you actually destroy Stormwind.

well it dies at 1000 damage

Priest with silence, weapon removal to reset his minions strength, Kel'Thuzad and Chromaggus for extra resources and a huge taunt minion on board shut him down.

Note that the AI runs silence, lightbomb, enter the colisseum, Dark Bargain and execute

People have been getting to damage running in the millions (see reddit threads for details) using priest buff decks. Makes my 214 max seems a little pointless :)

If you want to get far ahead in the damage, a good tactic is getting a large taunt minion + kel'thuzad out, this 'bugs' the instance and stormwind stops attacking, giving you the opportunity of building up a massive playing field.

Anyway, great brawl to get the quests which require you to win battles, as long as you don't concede, it is a 100% win, lovely gold, such lovely, easy gold!!

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.

      Mike Donais appeared yesterday on his daughter's stream, where he played some games and talked about various topics. He may also have inadvertently made a major reveal about two upcoming nerfs.
      A private message from Jared Noel, a former member of Hearthstone Analytics at Blizzard, appeared on stream. It was mentioned in it that changes would be made Conjurer's Calling and Extra Arms. The former will be increased to 4 mana, while the latter - even though it was one of buffed cards from The Boomsday Project - will be reverted to 3 mana.

      Now, Mike may have been replying "yes" to anything said above, but judging from his reaction this chat log wasn't meant to be shown on stream.
       
      The previous day from the stream, the Hearthstone developer had revealed that there will be an announcement on balance changes this week.

      Hopefully they are prioritizing a nerf patch before the Single Player Content patch
      Yep, we will give more info on balance changes this week hopefully. (source)
      During the stream, Donais also talked about a lot of other issues like card balance and Wild balance in particular, Arena changes, card design and more. Some interesting tidbits are that for Arena, they will revisit the old system, where you could see powerful cards and weak cards in the same pick - without this necessarily being a permanent change. There's also talk about upgrading Priest's board clears - one of the class's main weaknesses - since the team doesn't want to reprint the same cards.
