I closed the other topic because nobody was discussing the new card. How bored are you that you are once again acting like the trolls you always b**** about?

Stop complaining about people complaining and don’t derail topics with petty arguing over and over again. Once again you are being the antagonist/troll here

To make my side clear, I believe that all three active Hero cards are strong cards. However, there is nothing that indicates that they warp the meta to the point that classes and decks without them aren't viable. The best deck doesn't play a Hero card, and the first deck that does has a win rate within 300 basis points of eight other decks, some of which, also have zero heroes. And using a super niche format like Specialist that next to none of the player base will ever play is also very flawed.

Furthermore, the Hero cards in the past have been objectively stronger than any we see now. Rexxar and Jaina gave those classes more "infinite value" than the current three. Anduin, Gul'Dan and Malfurion gave their decks notable long-term damage and pressure. None of those were ever nerfed, Hall of Famed, and only Anduin saw a related card nerfed during its time in Standard, which was Raza.

I also don't buy into the whole "Blizzard doesn't want to give us dust" nonsense, as they gave a pile when Hall of Faming the Odd/Even cards.

Handcuffing design to allow LESS interesting cards seems counter-intuitive to the whole idea of Hearthstone in the first place when little to no data correlates that it should occur.

The first person that brought up other unrelated cards in that thread, was ironically, you. So blame yourself for derailing your own topic.

But since you're worried about appropriate posts in topics, I'm assuming you won't be a hypocrite and will delete your post ;)

I don't recall you ever saying all Heroes should be gone.

Not everything is about you sweetheart.

I feel like they could still bring in one Hero while having Quests as well.

What classes are the four members of the League of Explorers supposed to represent? I don't think any of them are Priest, who probably needs it the most.

Also, there's a very Togwaggle looking card as the last card on their spoiler schedule. It could be a Rogue hero.

I did actually vote yes cause I think it’s unfair some classes get a cool hero and others don’t

I think it's fine provided that those that don't have viable options.

I don't think you'll ever see each class have a Hero in their Basic or Classic set, which would be best case scenario, if properly balanced.
