I can already hear both of them cheering a lot, telling each other (and the audience) how excited they are about the new  awesome expansion and the great cards. -.-

I really think this expansion has the potential to be fun, but sadly a lot of the cards are so bad I don't think the meta will change much til next expansion

This. Of course we have to wait but I see no reason why Jade Idiot (errm Idol I mean) druids should stop or why Highlander should stop doing what they do all the time and making the game more and more boring.

And obviously most players are not interested in having fun, no matter which cards an expansion brings.

The only good thing about K&C so far is that there have been no more (censored) "Highlander" cards, meaning it seems they might potentially could have gotten the message Reno & Co was the worst mistake they ever made. At last.

Reno Jackson was a success, it was an excellent card, like Loatheb level excellence, Raza the Chained was a success and Shadowreaper Anduin was a success 'individually'. If these cards see play in different times, they would be totally fine. I mean, DK sees play in big priest, but it is balanced there.

When you put all three in one deck, most dominant archetype in wild right now, it is total garbage for everyone, except Orange, who said that he wants to play highlander priest until the day he dies.

Reno Jackson was the absolute worst card ever printed in all the history of Hearthstone, managing to combine the three biggest possible negatives in one card:

- Overpowered, as he had way too big of an impact when played.

- Unbalanced, for the 'negative' effect of having only one of a card isn't one with a large enough collection to pick from.

- Pay-to-win, because to use him you need aforementioned large enough collection.

 

Since my heartfelt thoughts are unfit for writing, let me summarise with: Good riddance to bad rubbish!

I think with Reno it's not only about the power of it in the game directly but the frustration it causes for the opponent.

I hated every damn game where this guy showed up, no matter if I won or not. I didn't mind most cards but for Reno, I was happily dancing the moment he rotated out of standard :D

Raza is totally fine on its own.

Anduin not so much. I don't want to say it's totally overpowered but it has the best Battlecry of all the DKs (well, maybe competing with Gul'dan) and even without Raza the hero power is a bit too good with a build-in improved version of Auctionmaster Beardo. But Anduin is still not as bad as Reno was ;)

Anyway ...

Majority of powerful Renolock decks cost more than 6k dust. The wild decks we have up now cost 8.4k dust and 10.8k dust, assuming adventure cards cost no dust, with neither of them containing any cards from year of mammoth, making those a good estimate how much those tended to cost. They were some of the most expensive decks at the time, together with wallet warrior and various N'Zoth decks, mainly paladin.

These numbers look somehow cute compared to what we see now (at least in standard) ... getting worse.

I don't want to say they should give out everything for free or make it cheap as hell but increasing the cost more and more is not wise. It's the same as with taxes, even though they constantly get increased it's short sighted and this approach will collapse sooner or later. On the long run a decrease would benefit everyone more. But maybe we will blow up everything anyway before it will matter :D

It went pretty much like this. But it was somehow entertaining. 

And Ben Brode still sounds like a chicken when he's laughing :D

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
