I'm beyond shocked that no one has started the "It's Friday! Where is my update?" thread! ;)

Content speculation...


Official CZE GenCon/Dragon Lord Video?
Official Zeedu Spoiler?

What else?

I'm also surprised this thread didn't pop up sooner. Maybe people have finally started to accept that the updates always come along on Friday afternoon, PST. I don't even look for them until about 1 or 2 PM Pacific, and I don't get worried unless they haven't shown up by 4. :)

Did CRZ also give the exact date for the alpha release? :p

Yea, of course. And also a link to download the alpha client early when the time comes, so we'll be ready.

I am getting used to see the update late at night local time, so I wait (im)patiently

More streams would be cool. I find it a little odd that they only scheduled the one, to be honest, since they supposed have their brand new room specifically set up for streaming.

Everyone was out of the office for 5-6 days at GenCon - I'm sure they haven't had a spare moment since they got back. If I had to guess, I bet we get one next Friday...

Sad to say, it's a possibility. WRD is just so damned good. Still, they can't break my heart again; it was already broken by the Master Beast Rider nerf. >.<

Master Beast Rider broke my heart twice in the same week. The first time was when I learned that you could only have 4 of a specific gem in your deck. I was going to make a sweet W/B deck with MBR and Inquisitor with the direct damage blood gem -_-. Then they nerfed it.

It would really have been nice if the non US / non GenCon attending Dragon Lord had a mail with the minutes of the infos released at the dinner.
Missing a great dinner is already a big loss, missing on the gifts and the info is heartbreaking.

I think you missed the sarcasm in Gwaer's post.

Anything we found out was as a result of a carefully crafted plan to ensure Ben's wine glass was full ALL THE TIME! ;)

More seriously, individually, or in small groups, we probably found out minor things that could technically be considered spoilers. Seems like everyone has decided to let what was said at the Dragon Lord dinner stay at the Dragon Lord dinner just in case CZE wasn't ready to say anything. Personally, maintaining the relationships I developed over those 4 days is much more important to me that taking any sort of risk by divulging anything I may or may not know about the game that hasn't been officially released.

Also, anything that CZE said "officially" is in the video of Cory's speech which is floating around the internet someshere ;) There were no other official announcements, despite Gwaer's teasing.

It is important information, I need to know the correct dosage. Too little and he won't talk, too much and he'll go blackout. It needs to be balanced very carefully for maximum effect.

Finally!

The ramp card spoiled is pretty delicious, but the life-from-death bunny was already spoiled (and isn't exactly impressive >.<).

Icepick
08-23-2013, 03:36 PM
Really? I thought the Blood Bearer was pretty good.

jaxsonbatemanhex
08-23-2013, 03:56 PM
It's a 1/1 for 1 (which is almost always unimpressive), and the ability will usually be irrelevant - unless I had some way to abuse the ability, or some way to make good use of lifegain, I'd generally rather a card that had more impact on the game than padding my total a little bit.

I wouldn't rule out 'token' decks being able to make decent enough use out of him (ie. Battle Hopper decks), but in the majority of cases I just don't see it having enough impact.

ramseytheory
08-23-2013, 03:57 PM
I think it's maybe a little hard to judge the Blood Bearer at this point since we haven't seen any other blood 1-drops beyond Unmerciful Tormentor (which is only usable in beatdown decks). The PVE equipment looks like it would be pretty fun to build a deck around, though.

e: Although thinking about it, we do know about Charge Bot, which is an improvement on Blood Bearer barring combos (or something weird like a mono blood tribal shin'hare deck).

jaxsonbatemanhex
08-23-2013, 04:09 PM
Unmerciful Tormentor is ruby. :-P Fang of the Mountain God is blood, and he's actually a good 1 drop, being a 2/2 (with slighty drawback, but in the aggro deck he wants to be in self-pinging for 1 a turn is fine for that body on a 1 drop).

I'm just primarily going on MTG experience, and the other Hex one drops, and if I wouldn't play Scrivener outside of a deck where I could really abuse the ability, I probably wouldn't run Blood Bearer outside of a deck that I could actually abuse the ability in.

Leingod
08-23-2013, 04:16 PM
I think it's mostly meant as a method of counteracting wretched brood life loss in shin hare decks honestly. Especially if you aren't running siphon or roosters for whatever reasons.

ossuary
08-23-2013, 06:26 PM
Also works well with the constant that lets you pay life to draw cards (can't remember the name off the top of my head, too tired to look it up). The Shin'Hare seem to be developing a nice bit of synergy around sacrificing some to make the rest (and you) better. See Gwaer's rundown on using the Shin'Hare deck at GenCon for examples of the good interactions these cards can have when combined. The lifegain helps keep the engine running.

Kroan
08-24-2013, 01:46 AM
I think the Blood Bearer is key-part of a sacrifice deck and like the card A LOT. It's gonna see constructed play for sure
