OP Mages are ruining this game

Posts: 386
So many people playing OP Mages with their DD spells that are impossible to counter. They really need more nerfing as they really are ruining the game.

Hearthstone devs, are you listening? :)

I certainly hope not. People whining =/= something needs to be balanced. Luckily they have the stats for win-rates so will use those when considering how to balance things.

According to stats, mages are around +- 50% winrate, so for sure not OP. You just have to learn how to play against them.

With all due respect, players who cannot cope with game mechanics who run to the forums to denounce their evil of the minute are ruining this game.

Someone made a thread about an "opponent abusing the Fatigue mechanic" because they made them draw and take damage after the player had emptied their deck. FATIGUE. Being "abused".

Everyone has a 50% winrate, that's what the system does. What matters is how high the rankings are for each class. We really need that statistic to be shown somewhere by Blizzard.

Every individual does, but not every class. Matchmaking doesn't (as far as i know) take into account class. It is very possible for a class to have a high winrate. But yeah we don;t have these stats, only Blizzard does

Just based on what I encounter, I'd wager druids are the most powerful class. Best heals, best taunts, best minions (IMO)

I think that upon releasing new cards, there might be more spell attack counters coming like there are for taking damage via minions or weapons. I had contemplated how a "Taunt" for spells could be possible. Like "spells must target this minion before others". That would end up being harsh on Mages specifically, but once you reach 4+ mana, it can be tough to stop a Mage from ending you on 2 or more spells.

i sure hope blizzard is wise enough to not take the whining of bad players as the view of the majority. fact of the matter is, people who think like you do are just bad ignorant players who are completely incapable of adapting to meta games.

Strange, all cardgames like this one have the same issue: SE, DoC,... Mages own cardgames.

Haha , i play warriors in every computer game. I used to play WoW from bc to cataclysm, reaching 2400 in 3x3, i could say that blizzard has some issues on hating warriors and loving mages. So i just began playing mage/rogue in hearthstone, rank 2 in 3 weeks.
Also, druids are op. Hue hue hue

Mages have high intelligence and wide knowledge which represent nerds. While warriors look like bullies to nerds... So, revenge is sweet, even just in a game =))

Yes, we do have those stats.

Mages have a 62% winrate. Other classes do not.
