Mean Streets of Gadgetzan's launch on the NA server had a bug in the drop rates of tri-class cards. Players who opened bugged packs will be getting good compensation.

The bug meant that tri-class cards appeared more often than they should, which meant that players who opened cards before the hotfix at 2:30pm PST (10:30 CET) on December 1 were disadvantaged in their packs. Blizzard have not only fixed the bug, but are giving all players who opened Mean Streets of Gadgetzan packs before this time a total of 33% extra packs, rounded up.

CM Zeriyah gave a series of examples here.

For example, if a player opened their 50 pack pre-purchase bundle before 2:30PM PST, they will receive 17 additional packs. (33% of 50)
If a player opened one pack of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan cards and completed a Quest that awards two packs before 2:30PM PST, they will receive one additional pack. (33% of 3)
If a player opened 47 packs before 2:30PM PST, and 23 packs after 2:30PM PST, they will receive 16 additional packs. (33% of 47 affected packs)

This compensation only applies to the Americas server, as the issue was fixed before packs were available on the other servers. As a point of interest, the post also clarifies that the contents of packs are generated upon opening, not purchase.

Opened 56 packs (EU region). Got same legendary twice, Knuckles, and 1 golden patches the pirate (note that I've seen numerous people only getting this small pirate card). 12 epics, 2 golden rare and 4 golden common.. As I remember, more than 110 cards wen to dust.

This set feels so underwhelming so far. Druid, Paladin, and Rogue so far have a couple usable cards but all of the other classes have 1-2 decent cards at best. And that's if you're even lucky enough to get them. Just as everyone else has been commenting, I've gotten 400+ dust out of around 35 packs opened so far.

But this is what we must suffer through while the power curve resets. We'll lose more powerful cards when the season ends. And with MSG setting the quality bar so low it gives them room to design some stronger things in the next set.

EU. 50 packs opened, only 1 leg, a few epics and 90+ cards went to dust. Seems, the system is broken in another matter.

results from 3 acc:

first - 50 prepurchased packs and 25 packs from gold + 6 packs from quests first 25 packs zero legendary, then in next 50 packs - 5  

         legendary ...from 375 cards  203 goes to dust. And from last 30 quests cards - 27 goes to dust.

second - 13 gold pack - 1 legend, and only 5 dusted card, 30 quest card - 6 dusted

third - 23 packs from gold, 115 card - 19 dusted , and from 60 quest card - 1 legend (that 1 mana pirat) 17 dusted.

 

Blizzard chose to force players to spend more money in shop...

If you're feeling bad about Patches, you'll at least be happy to know that he is present in quite a few of our decks! :p

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
