Introduction While the cards for Whispers of the Old Gods (OldGods) were subsequentially released I made a evolving power ranking with each new announcement. The initial article, which was upated until all cards and the nerfs were revealed, can be found here. At the bottom of the article, I inserted the rating system explanation from the article once more for those who do not remember. In today’s article, I will present you four topics: Winners: cards that performed significantly better or saw unexpected more play than predicted. Losers: cards that significantly underperformed compared to the assessment before the release. Sleepers: cards that have not been figuered out yet or are underused at the moment, but having the potential to become strong. Update: the updated Power Ranking list* *There are two changes in the list: cards rated under (A/B) and (C) are now also listed in (1) to (5) three sub-categories ...

 

Whispers of the Old Gods Released

by Crow on

The latest expansion for Hearthstone, Whispers of the Old Gods, has been released in the Americas, with a release to come tomorrow for the EU. The Year of the Kraken begins today. Keep a few things in mind: If you want to get packs for less than the normal Battle.net price, check out our recent guide. And keep in mind that Blizzard is handing out a LOT of packs for free this time. Logging in during the expansion’s first week of release will net you three free packs. You’ll also get C’thun and two Beckoners of Evil for nothing. And that’s before you’re offered a quest to win two games in Standard, which will give you five free packs, AND unlocks another quest for win seven games in Standard that will reward you another five free packs. So yes, spend money to buy packs, but not as much as you have to ...

Amazon is currently offering up to 15% off on Amazon coin. If you’re looking at buying Whispers of the Old Gods packs with real money, this is easily the best deal to get the most packs for your money. I use it for every expansion and have saved a lot of money myself by using this method. 10,000 coins when all spent on packs including the coin back will net you 87 packs for $90 ($1.03 per pack) 50,000 coins when all spent on packs will net you 500 packs for $425 (85 cents per pack). Cheapest you can get them straight from Blizzard is around $1.17 per pack. There are a few quirks to doing this. You have to use an Android mobile device or use an Android emulator (good tutorial here on how to use one). Using an Android emulator is 100% safe to use and is not against ...

Join us live on Sunday evenings for the video stream, or download the audio podcast on Mondays! Standard is almost here and in this week’s episode, the guys discuss all of the major changes that hit or are about to hit Hearthstone. A new patch has implemented the nerfs announced by Blizzard earlier in the week. After discussing these changes, the Well Met! crew dives into the most influential cards announced last week (Spoiler List). Much of what we’re able to do on the show is made possible by the generous support of our Patrons over on Patreon. You can check ...

The new patch is live with the classic nerfs. You can now sort cards by standard and also look at the new cards. However, you won’t be able to craft them or open your new packs until April 26th. This also appears to be live on PC only right now and matchmaking will only match you against those players who have the latest patch as well. So until we see an update on the mobile platforms if you want to play with the new nerfs or not, you have a short window of choice. Hearthstone Patch 5.0.0.12574 Patch Notes This Hearthstone patch prepares the Tavern for the arrival of Whispers of the Old Gods! This patch also paves the way for a new way to play Hearthstone and introduces adjustments to key Basic and Classic cards. Along with bug fixes, we’ve also added new card backs and Tavern Brawls. Read on for details! Do ...

Hi, it’s OtakuMZ with another infographic. This one was obvious, right? I knew from the start, that this one would be the first infogrphic I want to make when the whole set is released. In the graphic, you will find all cards that revolve around C’Thun (C’T), the so-called “Cultists”. Please note, that the graph is intended for Standard play mode only, as I will all the next infographics released in the future. The first thing that I realized, when I put this infographic together, was that there are 17 cultist opposed to 16 that were announced by Blizzard in the first OldGods stream. Anyway, the cultist can be divided into two groups: the ones that buff C’Thun and the ones that synergfize with him, normally when he is above 10 Attack. Doomcaller is the exception, he buffs C’thun and brings him back from the Graveyard when C’T died priorly. ...

 

Classic Card Changes Incoming

by Crow on

We’ve known for awhile that Team 5 was planning to attack some of the Classic cards in order to shake things up in Standard, and now we know what those changes are going to look like. Here’s the short version: Druid: Ancient of Lore allows one card draw, down from two. Druid: Force of Nature’s cost has been reduced to 5 from 6, but no longer provides Charge. However, the treants no longer die at the end of the turn. Druid: Keeper of the Grove’s health has been reduced to 2, down from 4. Neutral: Ironbeak Owl’s cost has been increased to 3, up from 2. Neutral: Big Game Hunter’s cost has been increased to 5, up from 3. Neutral: Knife Juggler’s attack has been reduced to 2, down from 3. Neutral: Leper Gnome’s attack has been reduced to 1, down from 2. Neutral: Arcane Golem’s health has been increased to ...

We’ve been seeing “leaks” and rumors for the past week or so on April 26th being the date for release of Hearthstone’s next expansion, and indeed, it has been announced that April 26th is indeed the date. This will lead into some interesting scenarios with it being the last few days of ranked play this month so as players fight their way to hit legend or get that top 100, the meta might be shifting rather radically for them. You can read the full announcement below...

Sponsors – GamersGearEU  |  Twitter – @Fade2Karma | Facebook – Fade2Karma | www.Fade2Karma.com Written by @F2K_Chalk Tempo Warrior Control Warrior and the Combo Patron Warrior have both been a part of the Hearthstone meta for a long time, but now the dominating warrior deck seems to be Tempo warrior. Originally created by @ANOXShtanUdachi, many players, including myself, quickly adopted and adapted this deck for the current ladder session. With at least 3 player in EU holding spots in the Top 10 of ladder this deck is worth taking a second look at. Why Does It Work /Game Plan Players are often a bit confused when first looking at the deck, seeing the draw power of patron Battle Rage + Whirlwind + Acolyte mixed with the late game threats of of CW makes player’s concerned that after a battle rage they will end up with more cards in hand than they can play, and will put ...
