A magnificent new legendary minion has been revealed for the new Hearthstone expansion: Yogg-Saron, Hope's End. I remember fighting Yogg for many hours in WOW so it is a great pleasure to finally make its acquaintance here. The Hearthstone version of Yogg doesn't quite capture the feeling of fighting it in WOW but I can't imagine any way to do that and since this is a wonderful card I will forgive this most slight of transgressions.
Look at this card! It is random on random! Spells everywhere! Just so you know, it isn't as though Yogg is completely 50/50. Many spells draw you cards, or nuke enemy minions only, or otherwise do things that are good without requiring a target. Yogg is super random but most of the stuff he does will help you, and over many iterations you will see a large positive trend in his effects.
You know who wants super random explosions and random and KABOOM? People playing casual decks. People playing in Tavern Brawl just for fun. People who are streaming their ridiculous Yogg decks that are designed to just survive until they can slam Yogg down and watch the fireworks. Yogg will dominate all the highlights reels of the most outrageous things that happened on any given day.
Yogg will not be in tournaments. It will not be in good decks. While it can help you, it will often just cast a bunch of spells that barely do anything, counteract each other, or kill you. Yogg is not for players who want balance, and it is not for players who want competition. It is for players who want YOLO hilarity, and there are *tons* of those.
I think people get caught up in reading strategy articles and receive the mistaken impression that most players are hardcore munchkins chasing tournament wins. They aren't. Most players log on, build a deck that will do some fun stuff, win some games, lose some games, and log off. They read about stuff on the internet and such, but they just aren't that worried about winning. Just like in WOW where all kinds of content and balancing was aimed at raiders, people sometimes forgot that most players don't ever raid.
If you hate the RNG in Yogg, then please just calm down. Yogg isn't for you, and you probably won't see much of it at all, and when you do you will probably win. You aren't going to have to worry about Yogg being good or not.
Blizzard knows that this kind of ridiculousness isn't good for tournaments, so they ran a bazillion Yogg simulations to make sure that overall it does useful things, it consistently delivers hilarity, and top players will not be running it when they try to beat people for serious.
That is what the card is for. The people who this card is for are already salivating at the thought.
If you aren't salivating at the sight of Yogg, don't worry. This one isn't about you.
