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

Canceling Malfurion the Pestilent will no longer cause Armor to become invisible. Attacks with Lifesteal will no longer create excessive animations while Auchenai Soulpriest and Bolf Ramshield are on the board.

      Kobolds & Catacombs also has a launch trailer. And... it's... glorious!
      Our Kobolds & Catacombs hub contains all 135 revealed cards and everything you need to know about the novelties of this expansion, such as the Dungeon Runs or the new Class Legendary Weapons. At the moment, our guide writers should be hard at work preparing new deck guides. We might even have guides for the Dungeon Runs. Lastly, our Arena tier lists are up-to-date.
      At any case, you can track any updates in our Hearthstone changelog, but we'll probably make a news post about them. For now, you can read Aleco's excellent set review for Kobolds & Catacombs.
      Good luck with your pack openings and feel free to share any amazingly good or bad openings you've had! Also, best of luck to those who'll brave the ladder or to those of you who choose to delve into the Dungeon Runs!
