Apparently my server is the Americas and Southeast Asia, but I can't log in to actually play it because apparently, there are problems with said server at the moment. I'll get the full battle tag later...

I know, unfortunately I cannot seem to change that anymore without contacting a mod. And it seems to me to be too big of a hassle for something so little.

Knowing blizzard, it will be a balanced but simple game. Blizzard used to make awesome games, but ownership changed hands, and video game market studies says that most gamers likes easy games, so they purposefully dumb down their own games for a wider audience.

Diablo 2 and WoW back in the tech tree, burning crusade days was really, really awesome.

Most of these things have been mentioned in the previous 2 pages, but I don't realy mind reiterating it.
Since I do not play any other TCG's, I cannot compare it to anything. But I find Hearthstone a very enjoyable, accesible cardgame.
My fav class is Hunter, though Paladin is becoming my 2nd rather quickly. I like Hunter because it is very easy to synergize and rather powerfull. I am currently stocking up on dust to make a King Crush. Paladin is only slightly harder to synergize, Divine Paladin is quite an easy deck to make up and very satisfying to pull of with a Blood Knight.

My favorite is druid because of the amazing late-game (Ancient of War is so good), Shaman is awesome too though, the things they do with Windfury are pretty ridiculous, especially in Arena. Priest is pretty fun with all the cards that steal cards from your opponent's deck or take control of their minions or stuff like that, and Paladin is just fun in general.

About the game, game is solid. To be honest I like the system of Duel of Champions more, this game is way to simple in my opinion. That said, it is still very fun, arena is fun and what keeps me in this game, design of the cards is ok.
Favorite class, Warlock I guess because I was all about Demons and Undeads, when Death Knight comes in next expansion that will probably become my second favorite class.
I also like Druid a lot because he is very flexible and in my opinion very strong right now just because of the multi-purpose use that majority of his cards have.

Now a bit of negativity, I really dislike the Legendaries. I think that a lot of them are too strong and I dislike that if you don't have Legendaries, you won't be able to trade efficiently with the guy that has them and in the end you will lose, or will be left without cards because you will be trading 2/3/4 for 1 card.

And I think that game won't ever be "balanced" like some other games just because there is so much RNG in it compared to other card games. A lot of effects are completely random(Ragnaros Attack, Brawl, Arcane Missiles, Knife Juggler, Thunderstorm just to name a few) and many times I've lost a games due to that luck factor and many times I've won them the same way. But that is the reason I play this game just for fun because if I was about to start playing it competitively it would be pretty shocking and spirit-breaking for me if I am gonna lose the tournament or something like that just because the enemy had more luck than me.

And knowing Blizzard, the design of this won't change so it will stay as RNG-ish as it is now, or be even more in the future.

Alright, my full battle id is Gnomes2169#1333

Personally, I like playing the Druid at the moment, and I love how combo-happy the hunter and priest can get with their minions. However, direct burn damage has always been my favorite, and the mage fits that play style oh so very well (this is why I favor minions with spell power so much).

As for the Warlock... they would probably be a bit more playable if their hero ability only did one damage instead, or even zero (though that might push them TOO far in the other direction). As it stands, it is suicide to use their hero power more than four times, and the Warlock isn't all that good on the self-healing as it stands... Other cards that could be changed: Soulfire (Deals 1 damage to demons instead of its full three), Doomguard (One less mana to play) and Void terror (make it a base 3/4 instead).

Trust me, there is nothing wrong with the Warlock.

Maybe on lower levels yes, but on higher levels there are currently three kind of Warlocks and all three are viable at top level.

First kind is classical aggro:

I don't have Sylvanas, King Mukla and Young Priestesses, I have all other cards and deck is damn good. Now that Blood Imp is nerfed, you can use just 1 copy instead of 2. I also use 1 Power overwhelming.
Some of the players use Doomguard in this deck, he really doesn't need any buffs. Yes, he has big drawback, but you can play around that drawback with this kind of Warlock, since you will probably play all of the cards already. Doomguard won me a lot of the games because 5/7 charger for 5 mana is pretty damn strong if it wasn't for drawback, which didn't affect me at all since Doomguard was usually the only card I had in the hand.

About Soulfire, I don't understand what you mean? Soulfire deals 4 damage and discards you one card at random. Void Terror could be changed to 3/4, yes, since he is quite situational.

Second kind of Warlock deck is control:

Now trust me, if this deck gets going it will become unstoppable. It has just enough of removals to kill everything, strong creatures or masses of weak creatures. Then since Warlock is constantly using his ability, it comes to the point when he has 10 HP, uses 2x Molten Giants that costs 0 mana and then uses Defender of Argus and you have immovable object in front of you(except if you are Paladin, Paladin always has the answer to everything...).

This deck doesn't care if it is left on 15 or below HP, after Giants there are Alexstraza and Jeraxxus that will just heal him to 15 and if you don't kill him in few turns you are pretty much done.

Third type of Warlock is Murlock rush, I can't post that deck right now, but it is basically deck that is created from all types of Murlocks and it can be devastating rush deck, but you have to have a bit of luck in the drawing phase.

So this seems like a wall of text, just wanted to share some thoughts about the Warlock decks.

I think gnomes meant Hellfire instead of Soulfire, but I agree with you about Warlocks not needing buffing. The hero power is only detrimental when you're in bad shape, but the thing is that you have 30 health to burn and health is just a resource. When you draw that many cards, you can trade sub-optimally just because you have so many options, and oftentimes they can't keep up with you.

Exactly. My friend that was rank 1 for a good period but didn't manage to get the Legendary rank says that Warlock has the best special in his opinion. I wouldn't call it the best because it is all situational, but it is definitely among the better specials.

In a game where card draw is very important feature or should I say advantage, having a hero which special is to draw a card is amazing. No wonder it costs both 2 HP and 2 mana.

Probably my favorite current play is Shadow Madness (take control of a minion with 2 or less attack for the turn) on a Harvest Golem, trading with a 3/2, and getting the spawned golem from the deathrattle permanently because that's how that card works.

Reminds me of when this guy cast the thing that says "when this dies, you get it back" on a fire elemental or something, I mind controlled it, he traded his other fire elemental for it and woop, I get the new one. Ah, the joys of Arena.
