With the upcoming changes to Hearthstone, there are more than a few people flaming out on the forums (well anywhere they can complain about it really) that the changes will make it easier to get Legend. They think all the good players will be playing Standard, and because all the good players will be in Standard, the scrubs can make it to Legend on the “Wild Side” (see what I did there?). At the risk of drawing the ire of our listeners, I wanted to put my opinion out there for those players who don’t really know what to think about all this. It’s easy to get caught up in other people’s tirades because they tend to be louder, talk more, and generally be more consistent in pushing their opinion on anyone within earshot. When other people bring up valid points, these individuals attack the person bringing up the points rather than making sound arguments about why they feel the way they do. This blog post is not meant to convert anyone to my way of thinking. Nor does this blog post necessarily represent the feelings of my co-hosts.

I know the Naxx and GvG cards are leaving the meta, and since when is anyone and everyone’s guess, so I am finding it hard to put them in any decks I am considering for next month’s climb up the ladder. The more I started looking, the more I realized I am really only going to miss a few cards. Hard to believe it, but I could only think of a dozen, give or take, that I considered for most decks. I took a look at the neutral cards that have made a huge impact on the meta and tried to replace them with cards available now. The meta is still very different from where it was before these cards made their way on to the scene, but are the other adventures and expansion able step up to take the spots vacated by these powerhouses or will it fall to the classic cards to step back in and resume their old roles? While we watch the ill fated Naxx and GvG cards ride off into the sunset, well more like shamble off into the wild (see what I did there), let’s take a look at the hopeful few looking to reclaim former glory or a shot at the top spot for the first time.

“Fear Makes The Wolf Bigger Than He Is.”
Most of us have heard this German saying at some point in our lives. We tend to fear change especially when that change concerns stepping from somewhere comfortable and into an unknown. The talk is still going on about the changes to Hearthstone and the split into the two formats of “Standard” and “Wild”. There is a very vocal part of the community that believes this will ruin Hearthstone, destroy it’s momentum, or that the “Wild” format will be a ghost town where only the scrubs go to play because all the “good” players will be playing to win in “Standard”. The truth of the matter is that we don’t know what Blizzard has in store for “Wild”. Heck, I don’t think Blizzard knows what it has in store for “Wild”, but Read More →
