Hearthstone's Ben Brode discusses the "dark side of releasing new content"

Hearthstone design insights

Hearthstone senior designer Ben Brode has decided to record videos discussing the state of the game and some design insights instead of just posting on Reddit and on the official blog. The first one went up yesterday, where he discusses “the dark side of releasing new content”. 

On the docket is how daunting Hearthstone has become to new players due to the expansions and dungeon adventures, mana costs and power creep. He touches on Ben's favourite card, too: Grim Patron. What am I still going on about this for when you can just watch the video.

"Hearthstone senior designer and Ben Brode". Think there is an and too much in that.

I have no idea what I was originally planning to write after the "and" but obviously I gave up. Writing news after midnight - I don't recommend it. Thanks for spotting the error though!

MTG - you know, the classic and tried game that Hearthstone copied and streamlined for the better - obviously had this problem, and solved it too, by releasing new unique sets every so often.

It's the only way, really.
