It’s utter trash. I hated the original solo content for this reason.
The normal mode is nothing but a demo for new cards from this expansion with essentially an autowin premade deck.
Heroic, conversely, is what I’m disappointed by. They went back to constructed format against the bosses. That’s the exact reason I absolutely H-A-T-E-D old solo content. It’s the same exact same strategy every time. Build a stupid gimmick deck to beat the boss’ stupid gimmick, restart the battle until you get the perfect opening hand. Yawn.
This expansion is the most thinly veiled cash-grab they’ve done so far. Even Boom Labs was more exciting than this. I was actually enjoying the silly story and getting interested in these exclusive characters. They built up the ‘epic conclusion’ so much and then released this trash. AND locked each side’s story behind double the normal gold cost.
The past couple years I’ve only really enjoyed the solo-content because I like the idea of crazy powerful decks, drafting cards and treasures and heroes with all these wild and unique cards that you couldn’t get away with in standard.
They really shot a deuce on their PVE players with this one. I hoped Hearthstone’s future would expand the solo experience into new territory, but all I got was Battlegrounds and this chore of a story mode.
