Hearthstone Mercenaries Feedback:
- The leveling speed seems good. Shouldn’t change
- The crazy powerup treasures in PVE are fun. Good feature.
- After hitting level 30, halfway through Winterspring, I realized I don’t want to level up the other characters (mercenaries) I don’t really like
- I don’t want to waste time grinding levels on them nor do I want to keep going on bounties knowing that I’m missing out on exp. It feels bad
- There are characters in the mercenaries list I do like and would enjoy leveling up but there should be an attainable, free means to obtain them. I don’t want to spend coins on them because it can cost several upgrades depending on the character and I’m definitely not spending real money in this game right now
- PVP should have decent balancing. The reason I wanted to PVP was to see an upper ceiling on the skill expression that was available in PVE but it turns out there’s little counterplay to mercs that spawn other units and buff everyone (even if the same kind of creature only, like Humans or Murlocs). It’s like if Green and White decks were extremely outbalanced in MTG and you had no way to counterspell, remove creature, damage your opponent’s life points directly, etc
- If the story was very compelling on its own maybe I could consider spending more time in the game, but for now it’s been extremely meh
- Being able to go ham with Varian was fun and some Blink Fox shenanigans were too. I was very excited while playing those mercenaries in PVE however they aren’t the warcraft characters I really like (e.g. Lich King, Sylvanas, Jaina) and am really invested into, so keep playing a game where I have to grind and cross my fingers so that a character I like shows up on packs seems like a waste of time.
- While I can unlock some good combos with the characters I already own by grinding all the way to Task 7 and unlocking the good equipment, I don’t wanna go through that on characters I’m not really invested
I feel like my time would be more respected in other games. MTG Arena and TFT are two examples.
