The list is more consistent without risking shadow essencing barnes or resurrecting barnes. Especially now barnes is 5 mana.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

First Kael'thas game = first perfect win since the 4k lobbies. Hero is pretty, pretty good.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

The one who upgrades each unit in the tavern after a level up is TERRIBLE.

I got zero value from it and it actively hurt me once because I wanted to buy+level and freeze for a second available unit but couldnt

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Yeah Kael'thas is a good candidate to get nerfed. Got 2nd with him without paying much attention to what I was doing, and only lost to a highrolled poison/shield murloc lineup.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I've played like 25 bgs since the patch and haven't been offered a new hero once. get offered the full 4 heroes each time.

Anyway everytime they release a patch my mmr plummets and I spend the rest of the patch creeping back up to where i was before. Same thing is happening here.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Bob's buddy makes me tilt out of my mind. Oh I have a 2.1% chance of losing? obviously I do. 10.4% chance of dying. I'm dead. 4.5% chance? Guess what you're dead.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Though did get my first true perfect game with this nasty Finley (deathwing) game.



I'd gone perfect before but had bought a vulgar humunculous on turn 1 so ended on 38

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

How good would it be to add something like Earthen Ring Farseer to the game? Spend 3 gold to heal for 3 health, but otherwise it's just a 3/3 with no tribal synergy. It seems like it could be great in some situations, but could be a drawback if you play it safe instead of furthering some planned build.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

It's an interesting idea, but I'd hate to play against it.

Akazamzarak already slows the lobby enough.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

What about a hero with a 2 mana hero power of 'return a minion to your hand'?

or is the interaction with battlecry minions too OP?

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Way too hard to balance. May as well read "get a Brann or megasaur and you win the lobby".

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

The other two new heroes need a buff way more than KT needs a nerf. KT is in the 3-5 top heroes but he's not rafaam good. Maieves minions need to go dormant in hand for her to be non tier 4. Not sure how to buff lady vj. Maybe guarantee 2 or 3 minions of your new tier level? Always just going to be a poor/rich man's elise though.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Have thought about farseer/shroom brewer/guardian of Kings but don't think it would make for a better game. Maybe voodoo doctor would be alright.

Other random bg thoughts.

New beast is great, maybe too good. Good for menagerie builds w/ light fang if you can't find a hydra and solidifies Pyramad as a tier 1 hero as its a third really good hero power target (though not as good as the 1/2 murloc or micro machine as you can't divine shield/poison it)

Would like them to at least play test letting you hp twice a game with reno and maybe make it cost 4 gold or something. He's one of the most fun heroes and it's bad that he sucks.

Oh right yeah, for some reason I was thinking you'd be able to do it multiple times a turn.

you can also pull back stuff to hold for triples, or free up a spot to run your battlecry minions through while maintaining your end of turn buff minion

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

yeah it would be very powerful. you could use the same minion for its battlecry every turn. or as said above cycle thru battlecries while keeping a finishing touch unit safe

Yes I think it would be powerful and a late game hero in general. Not sure how good it would be early game though. Btw, how many heroes are strong/designed late game?

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

The best late game imo are rafaam, Noz, Toki, Reno, funglemancer, Alex, ysera, bartendotron, lich baz—some tick heavily to high rolling first like funglemancer or Alex or people finish bottom 3. fungal is probably the most egregious, Either you’re first or last.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I play all the modes, you could easily say the same thing about constructed, wild or arena. BG is fun and dumb and requires little $$$.
