    I am a it concerned how they are going to "retroactively fix" the unlimited tavern ticket issue. I came across this bug by accident and repeated it a few times to show it to my husband - thought it was just a visual bug and didn't even check the count afterwards (I don't really play heroic duels or arena).

    I they just want to take away the tavern tickets I was given too many of, sure, but this makes it sound like I am gonna be punished in gold?

    As someone who plays the dungeon runs a LOT, I have noticed some oddities:

    >The AI for this brawl has been actively dumbed down. The AI makes mistakes frequently but not to the extend you see on display on this brawl. The AI in the other modes has also grown more aggressive, prioritizing pushing for/setting up lethal when it can - things it does not do in this brawl.

    >It will actively waste moves and cards, even help the opponent - toss a coin to use shiver on their own minions, or heal the opponent, things it does not do in other modes unless it gets confused by "cannot be targeted" effects.

    >Skipping turns: This is something that happens rarely in dungeon runs when the AI feels like it is dead in every foreseeable situation, it just stops playing cards and ends every turn immediately. Seems to happen to a lot of people in this brawl.

    Well then. That is just a terrible card.

    Wow. It got its own packs.

    No way. What a waste of excitement.

    That's actually a really interesting approach - it wouldn't cut out entire classes but you could eliminate the most tilting match-ups - like a control deck could ban cards like Demonseed without eliminating cubelock from showing up.

    Gotta love brawls that are basically just "Hope you roll the better cards"

    I think the link to where to redeem the pack codes (the "here" link) is broken?

    Honestly though, if they print enough cards that become heaps better by just getting +1/+1, Invigorating Sermon will probably see play and would be the only thing needed to activate the entire deck. At that point you wouldn't even need a huge amount of hand/deckbuff.

    Does anybody know if you need to gain the attack at once or can you accumulate 4 attack with the hero power over 4 turns?

    Well.... people DID demand a win condition for priest.

    Apotheosis is... really not OP. It's an overcosted buff with lifesteal and yes, it punishes aggro for leaving a big minion. Just like Arbor Up punishes a player for leaving druid a wide board. Just like Totemic Reflections punishes someone who leaves up a good totem against shaman.

    And Samuro is still a legendary in a class that has very limited card draw. Priest in general has very unreliable access to good boardclears.

    Unless all you play is aggro/midrange against priest and not play around large minions possibly getting lifesteal, I don't see how a card like this could inspire such hate.

    It's... it's priest. The class that is good at healing. That's currently one of the main things it does?

    Am I the only one who thinks this looks pretty unimpressive as of now? Like, don't get me wrong, I am all in favour of something new and different but so far the battlefield looks pretty stale and doesn't leave much room for all the polish the other modes have. So much of HS' charm is animations and FX and so far this appears like a glorified puzzle mode that may not live up to the hype. Maybe I am just wary considering this is the only mode in HS that doesn't use cards.

    I hope my impression is wrong, though. I really want this to be good.

    I don't play Runeterra and know virtually nothing about it but I love Chip.

    There is really no clean way to make an informed statement here. Statistics tell us that false accusations are incredibly rare so really, if you don't decide from the start which side you believe to tell the truth, that's the closest you can come to the truth.

    The thing is, in this specific case, Zalae just hasn't really defended himself and it honestly looks like he was just waiting for it to all go away if he just didn't address it. And if you look at alleged victim and abuser's mannerisms, the allegations seem like they... fit. The way zalae presents himself on stream looks less and less like a played character and more of a state of mind. He shows zero empathy, displays very arrogant patterns of interaction with chat and constantly pushes himself to be fitter and more efficient. Meanwhile Rini in her video is fidgety, nervous, intimidated and still somehow worried about Zalae (as in, instead of showing a desire to hurt him or his career, she voices concern about him and his issues).

    Taking everything about their profiles into account, Rini's account makes sense. It all fits and if you scroll through the comments, you find a lot of people who know Zalae's mannerisms be entirely unsurprised.

    So yeah, personally? I usually believe the victim. And in this case I just also feel very confident in believing the victim.

    I have to agree with Frosty. Stickyfinger was a very needed tech card against decks that relied too much on one weapon and due to Hoard Pillager it was the ONLY real tech option. Evolve Shaman would have been even worse without this little beloved larcenist being around to stand in their way.

    Forged in the Barrens card packs opened before visiting the Reward Track, and during Pre-Release weekend, can contain Blademaster Samuro or Golden Mankrik (in place of another Legendary card).

    • To address this, full Dust refunds will be available for the week following Pre-Release, this applies to golden Mankrik, non-golden Blademaster Samuro, and golden Blademaster Samuro.

     

    Does this mean that it would be recommended to open the packs before visitting the rewards track since getting any of those basically means "free legendary of your choosing"?

    Didn't have to loose charge, he just said that it did have charge. Leeroy would be a possibility.... That, or Arcane Golem
