100 gold / day is a very very bad idea
That nerf to Hounds.. I love you, Blizzard.
Yes... Nerf those hunters, blizzard... Good...But my inner warlock is sad with the flame imp nerf. That thing is my early game all star.Edit: typing from a phone is hard, okay?
Ehh.. Do you really play for more than 30 wins a day zmin...?
Man, I LOVED Hounds (before the wipe, I haven't gotten a new one yet) but I'll agree it was OP. Like they said, the ability to just drop three or four small cost beasts then that and wipe you out in one turn... uncool. The new mechanic sounds like fun, even more reason to be terrified of buzzards/hyenas.
I'm new to it just recently getting a beta key. The changes seem wacky to me. ie my buzzard rarely makes it through a round or two to really give me benefit, Never did get unleash the hounds out to see this 1 round beast cleave as being described. If it gets to round 10+, we do need something to get some nuking and finish up the round quicker. So I fail to see the hounds being a big deal except maybe a higher cost.Mind control, I haven't encountered it but I'm sure I will at some point, maybe give it a limited effect. I haven't had a sheep revert back yet if it does.Thanks and it's great to see this progressing like it is. It's a fun time.
um, when the winners of Animated golden cards beta Giveaway are going to be announced? :|
I like where they're going with this, but I don't feel that they're addressing core issues right now. Shattered sun will still be run because people only cared about the buff and while having the 3/3 to back it up is nice, it being a 3/2 will not cut down on its play overall. Same with argent commander, it's still the ulitmate guaranteed 2 for 1 trade card and it is highly unlikely that it will see any reduction in play overall.I also feel that blizzard missed their oppurtunity to nerf mages, who desperately need it right now. They have too much control for the burst they can layer on, and pyroblast is so completely stupid it's painful. There's just no counterplay to 20 damage to your face in 2 turns whilst being unable to kill the mage because of iceblock and freeze. They're not quite as bad as old rogues but they're so impressive right now it's very infuriating.
@zmin - to earn 100 gold you have to play at least 6 hours and win every game. Which in my and many other people cases would take even longer, sth like 7,5 hours. I don't think that anybody would really play this game that long, and even if sb would, it would def. prevent them from alienating themselves from reality. Gaming is fun as hell as long as one doesn't abuse it - in my opinion at least. - peace ;-).
Way to make the worst class even worse... I don't even play UTH after a day of it, but Hunters are the weakest overall class for a long time now.
While the change to UTH is probably a nerf to one style of game play (OTK), imagine the new possibilities with Scavenging Hyena and Starving Buzzard?Drop down 3-5 charged hounds and suicide them into a minion to pump him into a 10/7 or something like that. While also drawing 3-5 cards. Think of the new possibilities
No... Not mind control being 10 mana cost... Darn... (in a sarcastic tone) :P
The thing about Unleash the Hounds is that you could literally just clear the opponents field with traps and spells until turn 7 (sometimes as early as 6, or as late as 10), where you then just drop everything and UTH. Having 4-5 cards on the field with charge and upwards of 5-6 attack each in one turn seems a bit unfair.I'm not saying I don't love being a hunter, but I'm sure anyone who's had to fight them will enjoy this change.Mind Control being nerfed also makes a bit of sense in the manner that you could use all your buffs, and then be forced to waste a turn correcting that mistake after they've taken your card. At least in this way, the priest also wastes a turn, making them consider a more tactical usage.
They should just remove Mind control or make it a limit of 1 per deck instead of two in addition to its 10 mana cost !
Wow that nerf to UTH makes it unplayable. Unless you're up against another hunter or maybe a druid, that card is absolutely worthless.
