Hearthstone: Upcoming Balance Changes for 22 Sep 2014
Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.
I’ve just read the news on the upcoming balance changes for next week.
There’s going to be 2 changes, the first is Leeroy Jenkins. The mana cost for Leeroy Jenkins is going to be increased to 5 mana, up from 4 mana. I find this to be a welcome change because playing against decks like Miracle Rogue is kind of frustrating.
Board control does little against Miracle Rogue, minions find it hard to stay on the board against the deck; mostly, the game is just waiting for Miracle Rogue to accumulate mana and dig for combo cards while hitting you for a little damage along the way.
Winning against decks like Miracle Rogue usually doesn’t depend on you playing well; it depends on your opponent playing badly.
The other upcoming change is a Starving Buzzard nerf. Starving Buzzard get +1/+1 but will cost 5 mana instead. Which is a ridiculously harsh nerf against it. Starving Buzzard + Unleash the Hounds is going to cost 8 mana. + Timber Wolf at 9 mana.
Who would ever play Starving Buzzard over Cult Master? And class cards are supposed to be stronger than similar neutral cards. And Cult Master is not even rare. In my opinion, a more reasonable mana cost would have been 4 mana for 3/2.
Geek Generation out.
