Mike Donais and Dean Ayala Talk About the Upcoming Nerfs

Recommended Posts

MZPJQLZDUYMK1487020766402.jpg

In the first part of an IGN interview, the two devs discussed the heated topic of the reasoning behind the nerfs to Fiery War Axe, Innervate and Spreading Plague.

After Ben Brode's initial clarifications and his lengthy posts on Fiery War Axe specifically, now it's time for more talk about the upcoming card nerfs! Mike Donais and Dean Ayala sat down with IGN in a two-part interview and explained the changes on the three aforementioned cards.

I have summarised the most important points, but you should definitely check out the whole interview here.

As far as Druid in general is concerned, the two developers revealed some statistics from Blizzard's own data. it turns out that Spreading Plague was the top card in Druid, followed by Innervate which has been in the top three cards of the class historically. On the other hand, Ultimate Infestation was hoovering around the tenth position. The card changes will hit the current top four decks (assumedly Aggro Druid, Jade Druid, Pirate Warrior and Murloc Paladin), so this opens up space for new decks to shine.

Moving on to Innervate, it was so powerful it was auto-included in all Druid decks no matter the synergies. This made all Druid decks feel the same and it limited design space, since Innervate synergises, well, with... everything! The nerf was intentionally hard, otherwise the card would still be included in most Druid decks.

The same rationale was used for Fiery War Axe. These two cards were included in all decks of their respective classes. However, the team wants players to focus more on cards that promote synergies, instead of cards that are just too powerful so they HAVE to be included in a deck. Donais and Ayala also talked about wanting to limit the number of Basic and Classic card in decks to around 25-30%.

The team admits that they underestimated the power of Spreading Plague. They didn't want to change the stats of the scarabs, as many people suggested, due to consistency; these are the exact same scarabs that Druid of the Swarm and Malfurion the Pestilent can create. Six mana feels good for a late-game board tempo swing.

Lastly, the team is still looking into Ice Block and discussing whether it will be moved to the Hall of Fame, but it's too early to tell.

A final detail worth noting is a phrase Dean Ayala used when talking about Innervate: "I think at some point there will be some meta where Innervate will be super useful for Druids when they need cheap spells for whatever the new Auctioneer is three years from now, or next year". This could be interpreted in many ways: 1) he was just talking generally, 2) they are thinking of rotating Gadgetzan Auctioneer, who has already survived a nerf, to the Hall of Fame, 3) they might design a similar card in the future.

First Ben Brode now these two guys with a lot of words for "we want to make players buy expansion packs instead of using basic/classic cards".(yea yea, I know ofc there are other (good) reasons for nerfs but that's no excuse for how bad they did that) 

Maybe I should mention I'm not the greatest fan of playing warrior and when facing them (once the nerfs go live) I will have it easier against them, at least until players adapt to the changes. Still I think the change/nerf to Fiery War Axe was badly executed.

Spreading plague is still ridiculously overpowered. Who cares if druid of the swarm and malfurious spawn 1/5's? alot of boards go wide and having an equal amount of 1/5 taunts for six mana is still too much. They should be 1/3's at the most.

*Looks at all rogue decks and shudders*

 

Really, what they need to do to rogues to force them to use 25%-30% of basic\classic cards?

The entire problem with rogues is largely like the innervate problem with druids, a sort of super synergy.  It is really hard to design good cards for rogues without breaking them.  If they give them any type of cards that promote aggressive styles, ie more burst, then you get super tempo decks like oil rogue that are extremely strong, any sort of strong lower cost spells, and miracle has a field day.  Give them anything else, and it is pretty worthless because "taunts, heals, and good AoE isn't in rogues class identity".  Rogue is currently a broken class that needs to be rethought, and I shudder to think what will happen to the class if auctioneer is HoFed (seriously, miracle is actually in a healthy spot now, it is far more interactive then it ever has been, and is just in general, no where near as broken as it used to be).  Rogue is pigeon holed into using most of its classic and basic cards because they are the only good ones rogue has, because if they print anything else, it will either be worthless (since rogue lacks the ability to play a value based strategy), or have to be intentionally weak or gimmicky, or else rogue gets. . . broken.  You see a similar problem with priest.  Priest is the lone class in hearthstone that basically wants to play a reactive game plan.  Hearthstone is a game about aggression and tempo, which means that if priest is ever strong, it ends up stiffing that sort of game play, which makes it really unfair feeling to play against.  Simply put, priests don't play "fair".  If you look at the current strong priest decks, big priest and kazamakus priest, I don't really think the actual power level of the deck is higher then any of the other tier one decks we have seen in history, at least relative to the meta.  It just feels that way, because losing to priest feels really bad.  That is why blizzard just doesn't print many good control priest cards, because control priest is, in a way, unhealthy for the game.  Also, in case anyone wants to accuse me of bias against the aforementioned classes, I play mainly miracle rogue and control priest, and yes i am a particular kind of ass.

Yeah, it feels like they may put the last weeks to the motto: "We are disgusted by your poverty"

Seriously, a limit of 30% classics? You are a new player, you start the game (Free 2 Play, remember?) - and the first thing you see when you want to create a deck: "Oh, sorry, you poor pathetic being, you can only use 10 cards out of those you have for free. Buy 10 more packs that you can at least make a deck." And you definitly would have to buy packs - because without being able to make a single deck you cant finish a single quest. Because every quests requires you to have one playable deck.

They can't be serious about that.

What did they say in this advertisement? You are Hearthstone, everybody is welcome - or something like it?

Yeah, like in a strip club, you are welcome if you have a few hundred bucks.

 

If they continue the path they seem to be taken at the moment Hearthstone has had it's best times. And will die in a few years, because more and more players will leave it. Because it becomes too expensive.

2013: Start of Beta

2014: official release of Hearthstone + 1 adventure + 1 expansion

2015:  2 adventures + 1 expansion

2016: 1 adventure + 2 expansion

2017: 3 expansions

 

From 2015 - 2017 it has become more and more expensive / difficult each year to keep up.

And now they discuss to limit standard-cards alltogether.

 

It is ok that they want to earn money with Hearthstone (in 2016 they earned several hundred million bucks). That is out of the question.

But what they seem to be pulling now is over the top IMO. I have the feeling they get too greedy. You can increase the price of your product - but not infinitely. There comes a point when your customers will just say: "Screw you" and stop buying your product.

Blizzard shouldn't forget that.

I think you misunderstood their words. No one is planning to make some kind of hard limit. They want meta decks to have ~30% basic\classic cards by nerfing\HOFing cards to the point when it will be logical choice by players to not include more. No one is going to stop new players from making 30 basic card decks, it would be insane.

Yeah, I found this statement perplexing. They mentioned "the top four decks were hit" but they didn't say which were the top four decks. From various reports, Priest is definitely in the top 4 decks at the moment but the upcoming nerfs don't affect it. That's why I assumed they meant Jade & Aggro Druid, Murloc Pala and Pirate Warrior.

They did talk about Kazamakus Priest in that interview, saying that it's really strong and that they expect it to perhaps become the best deck of the new meta.

Ah, ok, probably a problem because I am not a native.

I took the word limit is an maximum number you musn't get over. Like a speed limit.

If it is just an aim, like: We'd like that decks don't contain more then 30% of standard cards that sounds way better.

Thx for the clarification!

I had a lot of games against Druids who either didn't play or didn't draw Spreading Plague and they are still powerful. Ofc it makes them even stronger and it needed a nerf but making them 1/3 would be a joke (no offense ^^).

Spreading plague should only give them one turn of safety, not a wall of 1/5 taunts that take two to three hits each (two to three turns) to clear them all.

I agree, Spreading Plague is definitely strong and the weeks after the nerfs go live will tell us how strong.

My problem is still their stance on and nerfs of basic/classic cards along with the faster release of new expansions as well as creating a meta in standard where decks need more and more expensive cards.

It's totally ok to make people pay. After all they provide a game we enjoy and that requires work but there is a point where they get too greedy.

1/4 would have been nice since they are then actually killable by more AoE. They hit Flamestrike range then, as well as double Holy Nova.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
