    Most probably, they are internally still balancing, to avoid such an nerf fiesta like the last time. :D

     

    Anyway, I'm not complaining. I like the surprise element this time. Last time they have done something similar was the league of explorers expansion, if I remembered right.

    I love card reveal season and all the anticipation, but this is also fun. The mystery! The wonder! Plus, it's only a handful of cards.

    They could decide to do a patch each week, so data miners wouldn't get the info much sooner than players. Might be tricky to time it for mobile though.

    But that would be lots of fun. Surprises every week.

    Nevertheless the GA should be released in next few hours and no patch available yet.

    I agree about there  being a fun surprise element with not having the cards revealed yet.

    With League didn’t they just announce and reveal everything pretty much a week before it released or something?

    Honestly, I’m surprised they’re doing it like this. Usually they try to really hype things up for the preorders, so I’d assume that not telling people half the cards would cut into profits with people not wanting to buy something when they have no clue half the cards in it.

    My tinfoil hat theory is that they’re trying to hide something, be it something really badly balanced that they’re last minute changing, or a bunch of cards that would make current balance problems just that little bit worse, which they don’t want people to be talking about until preorders are done and over with. Maybe even something to make Gala Shaman as strong as it was before the nerfs

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    LoE was the exact opposite, actually. They revealed every single card when it was announced. I don't think they've ever done this, which is pretty interesting. Might be because of the short window and how this breaks the usual expansion cycle.

    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead.

    Hmm. Turns out he's dead.

    Ah, right. But they announced it only a week before release.

    I still wish the whole Whispers of the Old Gods had been entirely reveal-less, for full-blown in-game madness during Release Day: Madness seeping from card flavour to the very game experience and rash deckbuilding and climbing. It'd have been  masterpiece.

    Tbh, for GA they could have omitted even the reveals we had so far. It's not like we are 3 months in a dead-meta expansion anyway, with a feverish need to feed the players with something new...

    New cards are revealed. I'm sure they'll be on here soon.

    So far the power level of the new cards hasn't been crazy. Perhaps if they revealed all the cards more people might think it's not worth the purchase.
