    News about Mercs is all over the place right now and it's normal. I am curious to see how successful that mode is. My impression: Blizzard thinks that, revenue wise, HS  has capped so it was time to launch something new that could have a decent margin of progression (revenue wise). I think there is a potential serous risk here because it will give a certain number of players the feeling that Hearthstone is now diluted in a bunch of modes. First conclusion players will hastily draw (pertinent or not) is that Blizz will make HS take a back seat a bit like Wild. If I am right, this will translate, over a not so long time, into a gradual reduction of active HS players (concurrent and simultaneous). How bad will this reduction be? It depends on the success of the Mercs, if too many players switch from HS to Mercs, that's bad for HS. Whether Mercs is a flop or success, I think Blizz cannot ignore one factor: I don't see the majority of players spending money on Hs ranked AND Mercs. So maybe Blizz thinks HS is done hence the launch of Mercs. I really hope I am wrong and that's it just bad speculation.

    I get it Flush you want things to cool down and be less toxic. But to be honest. Players are expressing themselves about how they feel.

    Sometimes if comes out in very aggressive way and the natural human reaction is blaming x,y,z. We know that so all the ranting you see right

    now is not really about the Mercenaries (the game itself). It's not about the devs and who is responsible. I believe it's about the what HS is, was...it's

    about a game they love and they see it taking a direction they do not like. Monetizing the game is ok but here it certainly crossed a line the players don't 

    like. It's about the direction the game is heading. You are going to tell me Blizz is looking at the hard cold data to make decisions. OK, but that's doesn't

    mean the interpretation of the data is correct. Windstorm + the arrival of Mercenaries is telling the players that HS is taking a drastic turn and obviously

    they don't like it. Time will tell if Blizz is right but right now I have never seem some many post disappointed players...that's a clear sign. How Blizz will

    handle it is crucial. The last point of frustration I think the players have and I am sure Blizz thinks it's not the case. Perception: Players feel Blizz is

    hearing them but they are not LISTENING. The perception is mostly based on the balance changes made.

    Not balancing the quest line if all the classes that can be achieved so fast? really? They should increase the final minion to 7 or 8 mana. I guess you are playing a quest line yourself, I bet on warlock..

    Next expansion coming soon, as we know now that they don't thoroughly test the cards, so expect OP decks in the beginning and nerfs coming a few weeks after. That's why I will not craft anything, specially Legendary cards before the meta settles down. That could take a couple of weeks.

    I have reached Legend last season with Pure silver hand Paladin 63% win rate. With the new expansion and core set there is a strong change that "dudes Pally " will be a very strong deck.

    Same here as OP, I quit too. Blizz cannot correct HS it's too messed up. The only way would be to be start over and release HS 2. Not holding my breath for this though but I am still checking the HS websites for any meaningful changes that could bring me to play again.

    Did you really read the damn post? There is no cap at 5k, actually there is no cap at all. It has been cleary said. Wow!!!

    Here I put it again FFS!! "Ben mentions in a later comment to remind everyone that the 5000 gold is just his personal progression each expansion cycle and not a cap in the system."

    I hear that Legends of Runeterra is going live on 30th April. Is this date confirmed?

    South East Asia could not access the Open Beta.

    The one catch is they aren't launching yet in China or Vietnam, so hopefully you aren't in one of those countries. Otherwise: hope to see you Thursday!  This game is SUPER f2p-friendly: just make sure to hit Vault Level at least Level 5 preferably 10 every week by Tuesday and you'll have a some respectable decks after ~1 month and a decent collection after ~2.

    I live in Thailand so I'll be able to play! Thanks for the tips!

    Thanks! I have no clue of what the rules and the mechanics are. I'll jump into the tutorial and we'll see from there.

    I am looking forward to try the game. Hope it's good.

    This will be my F2P card game...Can't afford to put money in two games.

    Already playing Hearthstone.

    For the skeptical: the new systems works fine I believe. The climb slows down a bit when you reach platinum 5. The MMR seems to work as intended and you don't have to grind your way up. 36 matches to get to Diamond 9 on day 2 is great (had 10 bonus stars to start with). Blizz also confirmed that if you stop one season you do not lose you MMR. Looks like hitting Legend will be easier than in the previous system.
