    @Xiimbox I appreciate the feedback, really! It helps make things better in the long run so I'm always interested to hear how things can be improved.

    (Apologies for the late reply btw, AGM and big, big Christmas party yesterday...)

    @Xiimbox Although I disagree with some of what you say on the meta, you raise a good point that people might craft “at a glance” from this list, and without reading the caveats I've made about the individual rankings at this point. I don't want that to happen.

    On the other hand I have to juggle the fact that people do want guidance even at this stage (I've had contact mails to that effect). As a middle-ground I'm going to split the list down into individual heroes. That way people get a snapshot of what's working per class, without feeling that they should be crafting away from their natural inclination.

    I have some ideas about how to better present the info from that point onwards, but that won't be until after the weekend, and for various reasons unrelated to the Hearthstone meta. I hope that's a middle-ground that works for everyone.

    It's late in the UK now so I'll pick this up again in the morning.

    @Xiimbox It's Tier 2 at worst and I think at this stage there's still a huge amount of placement fluidity within the Tier 1 + 2 / Tier 3 + 4 brackets. The bands are always much wider at such an early stage of the meta and will be narrowed in time. How can it be any other way?

    I don't have any doubt that right now it's a Top 5 deck though, and the public data points that are out there back this up. A few days ago no-one was running Corridor Creeper. Who knows what changes will happen in the next 72 hours?

    @fanap That was a bit inconsiderate of me actually, sorry! I've dug the previous version out of the archives just in case you want to revert to it.

    @xpzist Fixed and thank you! (It's been a bit frantic here to put it mildly...)

    @LordOfButter How weird! Even the card art is Rare. You're absolutely right though. Give me 5 mins and I'll fix it in the back-end.

    @vladoonet Hey thanks for letting me know and sorry about that. It should be working now but please let me know if you're still having any trouble with it.

    Update - 9th December

    I've added in details of all the different card "buckets" you can choose from as you go through the Dungeon with each character. The next update will cover combo-ing these together in ideal-world situations, and the best archetypes you can build with each hero in terms of flexibility and raw power.

    OK we've now got all of the Passive and Treasure Upgrades outlined in the article. The next job is to start working them into the rankings which will happen over the next couple of days. In the meantime it would be great to hear your thoughts on how those rank with one another.

    I'm also about to have a general tidy up so the boss list will be easier to read when we start slotting encounter tips in. Let me know how your matches have gone and I'll add in your tips - with credit of course!

    @RedRocket131 Yep, I'm just doing a couple of urgent deck updates then I'm adding them in. You've caught me between two frantic areas of updating I'm afraid!
