Hearthstone classic card nerf patch arrives

Get ready to adjust the meta once more, as today’s Hearthstone patch pronounces several basic and classic cards guilty of being too useful and popular. The sentence? Hefty nerfs across the board, of course!

The nerfs include the reduction of Innervate’s effect, a less effective Murloc Warleader, and an increase in the mana cost for Fiery War Axe, Spreading Plague, and Hex.

“Too many basic and classic cards played in individual decks means less fun when new expansions are released,” Blizzard said earlier this month. “Cards in the basic set serve several purposes in the game, so we would rather make balance adjustments to them instead of moving them to the Hall of Fame, like we have done for cards in the classic set.”

Who puts money into this anymore? When I saw last round of nerfs on cards I had bought I said enough. I hate this crap. If they nerf the cards you already purchased than they should refund you the money you blew on the packs in the first place.

A thousand times, this. What a transparent bundle of nonsense.

Last time I tried to play I was getting absolutely decimated with my old deck, I don’t have any of the newer much better cards :(

As someone who is not very good at Hearthstone and never uses these cards, I welcome this nerf bat and the new world it creates.
