Some of you may have already heard, Blizzard is gonna nerf some cards in the upcoming patch.

http://eu.battle.net/hearthstone/en/blog/20303031/upcoming-balance-changes-update-613-28-09-2016

Highlights include:

Yogg will now stop casting if it is removed from the field, silenced or transformed.

 

I think the nerfs are basically perfect. Though Execute is still too cheap for my taste, should be at least 3 Mana.

Not even half an hour and gone from the Hot Topics. This site is great.

I would make a D.Va "Nerf this" joke, but I don't play neither HearthStone nor Overwatch :P



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I'd go with - who cares?

It is a free CCG that came out 2 years ago. Did you actually expect this to get 100+ posts?

Charge is the only interesting change imo. They made it less, but also do less. Removing the +2 is one thing, but not being able to attack the hero is another. I think that is one step too far.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

In case you haven't been following, Hearthstone is actually a pretty big deal in the gaming world. It is quite strange that it doesn't get discussed much on these forums, but I suspect that's because the game is not on consoles.

I love the change to Charge. That card is the reason the horrible non-interactive combo warrior existed and this will surely be the death of that version. No more unfair OTK.

The other changes seem nice too. Execute nerf was long overdue in my opinion.

Too bad there's no change to the 4 mana 7/7 though... Also, screw N'Zoth.

Warrior and Shaman meta since I quit? That's too bad, when I quit it was only Paladin and Mage.

I still don't think I will come back considering the old cards cannot be used anymore.

There are a lot of big things going on out there that aren't being discussed here. It hasn't been discussed here (at least since I've been here) in real any particular way - thus it is not surprising this thread didn't get popular.

Infact I'm not sure many card games get discussed on here.

Charge went from being 0 mana in Alpha/Beta, to 3 mana +2 ATT, to this.. xD

You can still play with the older sets, just not in standard. The old format still exists, just under the 'Wild' name.



I stopped playing hearthstone when it became appearant to me that I was neither a good enough player, nor had enough free time to play it for free. And the recent (well....this year at least...) changes to constructed play, making most of the cards I did have, enjoyed plying and build my decks around, obsolete did not help.
I don't really have enough time to stay on top of the meta.
