It's obviously been a very busy week for the Hearthstone team with folks like Lead Designer Ben Brode taking time to respond to feedback from their latest efforts. In particular, his latest Designer Insights video on consistency really seemed to split the community. Some wanted immediate changes or firm stances, but what he offered was, well, insight into the development team's thought process and all the factors that must be considered. Aside from that, we also got some answers regarding strange card interactions, more reassurance on deck slots, and a justification as to why Blizzard doesn't tease new content as much with Hearthstone as they do their other titles like Overwatch.
Why Blizzard Doesn't Preview Hearthstone Content More
Designer Insight Responses
@Elsher_ I did try and start the whole video with the tone of "this may not be correct". And it is logical, even if you disagree with it.
@Elsher_ I don't even know if I agree with it! But I mostly did the vid to expose some lenses we look through that players may not realize.
@Elsher_ the logic is that less words is sometimes better. Where do you sort that among other goals? And I'm not trying to convince you :)
@Spongepedro in the shop the classic packs say "recommended for new players". Also we give them out more frequently.
@IksarHS I've been meaning to test Finley and Justicar! does Justicar upgrade your Finley hero power? or just upgrade the Mage one?
@AshButta the latter
@Sandeep270894 definitely happens a lot. :)
@Archirk yes we definitely do!
