Tavern Brawl: Boom Bot vs Annoy-o-Tron

Recommended Posts

GWWqUvj.png

The 68th Tavern Brawl is Boom Bot vs Annoy-o-Tron. It first appeared as a Brawl almost exactly a year ago on September 30 2015.

This Brawl features two special heroes, named after the cards Boom Bot and Annoy-o-Tron. Boom Bot's Hero Power is Deal 1 damage to 2 random enemies, while Annoy-o-Tron's is Give your lowest attack minion Divine Shield and Taunt. The decks are random, but some cards are staples in each deck. In general, the Mech Minions are the random cards.

The easy part to overlook in the hero powers is the Taunt available for Annoy-o-Tron. Taunting up something small like a Flying Machine can give your other Minions the freedom to take over the game. Boom Bot does seem to have more damage from hand however, using lots of random effects from cards such as Madder Bomber and Goblin Blastmage. This means that Annoy-o-Tron's Divine Shields rarely stay around for long, so be sure to use them on your terms, not your opponent's.

Yeah, I played Boom Bot 8 times before I got Annoy-o-Tron once. I was starting to think that it just assigned you one and you were always that one.

I was seeming that way when I played it last year.

I. Hate. This. Brawl.

I've just never had such a run of bad RNG luck in my entire time playing this game.  I normally win at Tavern Brawl in the first 1-3 games.  I've played 20 game of this brawl and I just get the worst of it every time.  This is the opposite of fun, just in case Blizzard cares.

Whenever I think I have a clear winner for worst Brawl ever, Blizzard overdo himself. Annoy-o-tron's hero power is so grossly overpowered it isn't even funny the moment your opponent knows how to play around Twisting Nether.

For all of you who wants a quick win: concede until you finally get to play as Annoy-o-tron and resist the urge to commit any more minions to the board than strictly necessary to wall your opponent out. If you are lucky, you'll even watch him blow himself up with his Mad Bombers and Madder Bombers.

First time Boom-Bot, easy win. I just don't get why people keep complaining about random brawls - if you ignore that and play like it's another boring constructed game then it's obvious you're going to lose.

I think the random ones are more disliked due to the fact that you can, as expected, just get completely outdone by sheer luck. Top Two etc. allow you to invent new and interesting ways to win/counter other winning decks. These ones just kind of are "flip a coin" games.

What are you saying? RNG cards promote a fun gameplay experience. Just go ask blizzard.

Nothing better than rolling 25 dice to see if Yogg wins or loses the game. That's fun, right? :D

      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.
