First victory/day, first victory/week, or first victory?

First victory of the week/brawl.

It's a pack so double incentive for even the most casual of players to get that 1 win.

Very fun, hope to see more bosses fight it out.

Also checked out the heroes in the collection manager and it seems the new heroes (sadly not old) all have music playing when you select them. Magni has Ironforge music, Medivh has W3 stuff going on, but I don't recognize Alleria's music. Anyone know where it is from?

Yeah, gotta get those free packs.

@Germans:
If I use GiroPay, how long do I have to wait till I can use the money? I thought it was instantaneous, but now it says that it'll take 3 days.

Oh well, Alleria can wait.

Edit:
Never mind. Got the moolah.

I might buy one or two heroes if I really, really like them. But even that is unlikely.

Medivh is my favorite so far, Magni's not bad either.

Agreed. My first two games... a loss with Ragnaros that I don't think I deserve, and a win with Nefarian that I know I didn't deserve.

But guys, wins with Rag are the best. You feel like you won legend, ESL and Blizzcon at the same time. It's much more satisfying just holding on with Rag than facerolling on Nef... well unless the other guy gets insane shit and it's just an abysmal slaughter where even holding on is a distant dream.

And hey, at least the two times I got pyroblasted for 0 were in friendly matches. ... : /

Best chance with rag seems to be to hold on and pray you get some of the molten giants or living lava's to slow nef down till you can pull something big

Rag vs Nef seems to be some weird control versus zoo/face matchup, where if you can survive until Rag's weapon breaks (and he gets DIE, INSECTS!), you should be able to stabilize, but it relies on good RNG.

Does Soul of The Forest help counter Brawl too?

I started playing this game the other day and couldn't get through three matches without opening the liquor cabinet and punching that Weasley brat for an hour.

Nef really has an advantage in the beginning and can rush down Rag easily with a lucky hand/wild magic.

But if you manage to hold out with Rag you can turn it around with his hero power (after Sufuras is gone) and when you can spam giants.

And I think that is kinda nice because it gives a true casual mode (since actual casual is not it, at all), with no value incentive there is no need to make uber competitive decks (like rush decks) which plague ranked when we get brawls that let us create decks. Apart from griefing and extreme tryharding it will be a mode to have fun in, to make decks that are interesting not competitive. It won't be perfect but it will be miles ahead of the current playmodes.

Apparently it gives the standard 10g per 3 wins, I was wrong. I guess it's because I wasn't paying attention (and I'm too busy to play much) and the blues said it will only give the pack.

This is both nice (because hey, gold) and bad for the reasons I outlined above.


I'm still loving the Tavern Brawl feature to bits though, and I am getting pissed at how much people QQ that Nef and Rag are imbalanced or that it's boring and repetitive.

You guys know me, I criticize Blizz more than most but this is just bullshit. It gives you a very nice reward for just checking it out, if this weeks brawl is not your thing then just wait for next week. It's not like you are forced to play this, the other game modes are still right there.

To be honest Blizzard has made very few great moves lately, this was one of them. They need to know when they're doing good, otherwise it will seem they can't do good and this half-assed stumbling that we're used to now will continue.

Sure, but there're no rankings... no hero experience points. I'm sort of amazed at the concept that they plan to make a new one of these every week.

Why do people run facehunter in Casual? Because it is the fastest way to earn gold. This behavior is reasonable but it destroys any notion of casual in that mode, as long as there is a good incentive people will go for optimization and efficiency over fun. A mode with no rewards whatsoever is the best idea I've heard to achieve a true "fun" mode in HS but it is by no means the only possible solution, as Brawl shows, kinda.

So I just now realized that, by making Medivh "Keeper of Secrets" a mage, they also give him access to the most powerful secrets in the game. As opposed to having zero secrets, which would be his fate as a warlock.

Touché.

EDIT: Plus, technically, he can still summon demons through the Unstable Portals. Along with anything else, including orcs.

The new Brawl is Mukla giving you bananas whenever one of your minions dies, so rush decks go nuts I guess. : /

I was hoping he would be standing in the middle, chucking bananas, barrels and all sorts of crazy stuff.

I am curious to tryout some variants of mage here and violet teacher druid (time for my newly minted Hogger to see some action).
