Needless to say, Hearthstone has been in a somewhat controversial position over the last month or so. Players are pleading Blizzard to help remedy the Priest class' issues while trying to find a "unicorn" Priest deck which probably doesn't even exist. Dean Ayala talks about the community's passion over Flamewreathed Faceless with all of the 4-Mana 7/7 memes and elaborates on why it's probably a fine card. But we also find out why Halfhill was delayed (Hint: Not because of a new adventure), an iOS patch is inbound, and the development team makes a few more interesting points.

Halfhill Pushed for Murloc Synergy, Not New Expansion
@IksarHS Priests struggle for quite some time now. You know that. And in this meta, they are unplayable.
@Lcfer I disagree about unplayability, but understand the perception. Priest needs cool new stuff. Agreed.
@Lcfer dragon is pretty good about being pro-active, would rather support that than just more removal
@BlakeNJudge creating multiple ways to play lets players be creative instead of designers.
Brode's Unicorn Priest
@OmarFarouk20 I wasn't saying there is definitely a specific priest deck
Said "a good priest deck might exist" and ppl think I meant I have a secret list. Not what I meant, but it's fun to see folks experimenting!
4 Mana 7/7s
4 7/7 commands such enthusiastic opinions. Maybe most of it is how it feels to not have an answer for it that early in the game.
Things like Doomhammer or Trogg feel like they fly under the radar even though you might expect both to command equal enthusiasm.
Glad aggressive Shaman is still going through iterations, feels a little different every couple weeks.
@Lcfer classes have strong cards, that's cool with us so long as it's not obvious to include them in every possible archetype of that class
@Lcfer mega iconic class cards get a pass in some circumstances but they are still talked about internally. EX: Fiery WAxe
@LeviTriumphant I think there is less variety in aggressive decks that makes them feel more population dominant. We should improve that.
@ThatsAdmirable most of the time people talk to me about wanting Nat to be stronger are in the process of building a deck that make you want
@ThatsAdmirable to rage quit hearthstone if you lost to it consistently. But I wouldn't know I never rage. Ever.
@LotharHS @DreamHack not that I'm aware of
@AlfisTheBest I'm involved but not to the extent I was on everything OldGods and prior.
@FallOfTheLiving yeah I noticed that too. We'll get it fixed. Thanks!
@coL_noxious yes - the pirate we cut from TGT. But maybe it was for the best. He'll probably be back some day!
