Yeah, I don't really expect to see Overkill again. Other mechanics definitely made up for it being lackluster, but damn that was a shame!
Zilliax to me is very much in-between. There were a lot of fun moments with him which made it a great card and one that will certainly be missed for that reason, but looking at it overall from a game health perspective, Zilliax had some very evil moments.
I especially love this since most of these cards won't be in Standard much longer!
Yeah, this is some INSANE art.
The next 5 weeks each give out 3 cards with a shared theme so its a great time to join in the Magic fun :)
Ah, they never covered that in the livestream, or if they did, huge mistake on my part.
They said per pack it will end up being a bit more than normal packs since the booster boxes have less packs in them due to the increased card size.
I imagine each booster box will be going for the usual price, no insane markup like Modern Horizons, though we may see an initially higher price due to demand as is always the case >.>
Get those pre-orders in so you can see them cancelled. lol
I think this a neat product for them to put out and I'm probably going to have to pick up a couple of packs to play with. I really can't wait for this to be available on Arena though! My real question is if when it comes to Arena we'll get to keep the cards from the packs or if it'll be more of a for-fun thing.
Oh my god. Mana cheating is so fucking stupid at the degree they've taken it. AGREED.
Yeah the old method, and even current one the fools use over there still, is so bad at being fair. Even though we had created a decent system of weighing the votes vs where you were at on the pages, it was never good enough.
Discuss Thread will always be pinned at the top of any competition page on that competition's navigation. We probably should have linked it here too *glares at Shadows*.
Nope, everything is locked in once you submit. Allowing edits was a huge flaw in the old system!
We've been talking about further improvements this evening based on everyone's feedback so far so they'll only get even better! I don't have an exact timeline or specifics so share yet, but we'll definitely communicate those closer to when we figure it out.
Yep, also a great piece of advice! It blows my mind how many people cough into their hands. It is such a bad habit that people learn early on (guilty myself) and we really need to get kids learning the arm trick.
That last game was so rough to watch. I've been screwed hard by draws in the past, but that was some next level shit AND on the biggest stage possible.
It was an awesome weekend though overall and I can't wait for the next big event!
We're all waiting for it so with Blizzard at least considering reverting some card changes, it leaves more hope than ever that it could happen.
Yeah back when that Echo change went through there was a lot of complaints about Reckless Experimenter still being nerfed so I definitely think there is a really good chance that is one of the reverts. They can always nerf it again in the future should it become OP.
Hopefully Runeterra pushes them in the direction of better daily rewards!
I feel the Ashe will be especially useful long-term since I don't see Frostbite ever being bad!
For real. Blizzard has a goal though that prevents them from being very open, especially when it comes to announcing changes, which is a little unfortunate.
They want all their messaging on them to go out through blogs. The blogs need to be translated into all the languages they write their blogs in. There is SO. DAMN. MUCH. OVERHEAD. I see the value they're going for but really, everything just gets translated by the community anyway and Hearthstone cards get understood pretty easily I feel.
Its funny how their goal is to have translated messaging for card nerfs, but then when card announcements hit during streamer reveals, everything just goes to shit and sometimes community translations are straight-up wrong and we'll go hours before communication on that.
There has been a TON of improvement though over the past year in their communication. I attribute it to basically hiring an entirely new community team.
