Why are they keeping adding effects and mechanics that summons minions but doesn't trigger Battlecry, while at the same time, more Battlecry minions with worse and worse stats? Almost feel like they are trolling the players. And yet the equivalent effects are done much better in Yu-gi-oh and MTG long before HS.

If you dont wanna waste your battlecry with those effects and mechanics, build your deck around deathrattle minions. By the way, battlecry is the most powerful effect in the game because there is nothing that your opponent can do about it, while deathrattle minions can be silenced, stolen etc. then you can understand why they receive less stats than other minions, their jobs are done at the moment they hit the board.

4. Dungeon Run

Dungeon runs are a new game mode in which, you will start with a small deck of your choice and battle through 8 increasingly encounters (out of 48 possible). 

 

I think you mean to say increasingly 'difficult' encounters. 

 

Also, love the coverage great job, this expansion will be awesome!

Thanks for pointing this out! This should be fixed soon.

We are getting closer to the release and I'm still not sure to pre-purchase or not.

Maybe some of you who are like me with HS have a suggestion. I am ok with spending a bit money here and there for a game I enjoy but I wouldn't sell my house and mother for it :D and I don't want to waste money or regret spending it. I am interested in other players' opinion too but if you are a consequent F2P player or someone who doesn't care about money at all your opinion might not matter that much ;). Xou might still have an objective opinion though.

As I see it K&C has definitely a few nice cards but also a lot of hard rubbish, too. Of course we (I) may underestimate some cards, that happens with every new expansion, I guess, but currently it feels like I can get the cards I want from the free packs granted and crafting the rest. But then is this, I don't want to regret not getting the pre-purchase :D

So how are you doing it?

  • Do you pre-purchse (or already did) and hoping it will be (was) a good choice?
  • or are you confident about K&C and say it's worth to pre-purchase?
  • or are you still undecided like me? :D
  • or would you suggest to save my money?

Would be nice if you include your average pay behavior ("I'm F2P" or "I just buy a lot and everything" or something that's in between those two) in your answer. Thanks. :)

I am F2P, the only thing I bought was the welcome-package for 5 Euro.

Personally, I'd never spent around 1 euro / 1 pack. Way too expensvive IMO.

Nevertheless I can't say what you should do - personally I will never spent this much for a pack. But on the other hand I don't get that much dust and I'll never be able to have 3 or 4 different Tier 1/2 decks.

If it is more important to you to have several decks then buying now seems way more sensible then paying even more later.

I was planning to pre-purchase at the beginning, but then as cards are revealed, I gave up, because most of the cards suck so badly and the good ones are from the classes I will not play anyways, like priest. 

There was a point where I was thinking of preordering to be honest, after seeing new warlock and rogue cards (also a big collection never hurts) but then, I've looked at the cards and realized that, I want like 10 of the new cards so far and I will open 30 packs anyways. I also have enough dust to craft 2 legendaries. 

If things do not end up as anticipated, I can always buy packs later.

Just so you know, I only bought 3×15 packs for KFT and I am missing 35 cards(out of 247)

All in all, you should wait for todays reveals, then decide whether to preorder or not but I don't think K&C is good enough to gamble on playability of cards.

I will definitely do that.

Thank you both for your suggestions, maybe I will end up flipping a coin if I can't decide :D

      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?
