Dean "Iksar" Ayala has asked Hearthstone players a question this afternoon on Twitter which makes for good discussion. If you saw our recent recap for his weekly Q&A, you may have seen his talk on "limited-time systems changes" in Hearthstone which is where the team would push out a special event for a few weeks that would change a core system. One of these changes he mentioned was being able to ban a class on the ranked ladder.
That's not what we're being prompted with today though because now, Dean wants to know what players would think about a "Class Bonus Event". Here's how it would work:
- A random class is chosen as your bonus class.
- Winning games with your bonus class gives you double XP and double stars.
- After 3 wins with your bonus class, a new class becomes your bonus one.
Dean does note that this would result in star inflation, making it the easiest time to get to your highest personal best rank ever. With all that in mind, and the fact that they are not currently working on that, what do you think of the idea?
Would you want to see this become a reality? How long do you think such an event should last? Share your thoughts in the comments below or send them on over to Dean directly on Twitter.
New Idea: Class Bonus Event
Tell me what you think in the comments. In constructed, a random class is chosen as your bonus class. Winning games with that class gives you double XP and double stars. After 3 wins with your bonus class, it swaps to a new one.
Yes, this would result in star inflation. Probably would be the easiest time to get to your highest rank ever.
How long would it last? Well, if you think it's a cool idea, how long do you think it *should* last?
No, we aren't working on this right now.
