Anyone knows japanese?.. Sorry, I dont even know that language.. .but Im sure Im not the only one interested in the pack hahaha...Edit: Translated for everyone.!Edit2: I think the pack is just for the Japan region.https://translate.google.com.ar/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=es-419&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Fus.blizzard.com%2Fpromo%2Fhearthstone%2Fpre-regist%2Findex&edit-text=&act=url
While it is unlikely that they'll nerf shredder's stats, it's still possible that they could nerf the deathrattle behind the scenes. We don't fully know how the rng works and if it's truly random or somewhat skewed. It could be that the devs have a way to make less-beneficial 2 drops have a higher chance of spawning from the deathrattle. Cards like Darnassus Aspirant I believe will be more prevalent in future xpacs because they have an increased effect when played from the hand (and therefore costing mana). We may not see direct stat nerfs but there are other ways to make cards less desirable over time.
I've been reading about this free pack on other forums, and most think that the pack will be given on all regions once Hearthstone is released in Japan (as this was also the case with other bonus packs). Blizzard will try to create a hype so they're being vague about the exact release date, it will be released this month.All you have to do is enter the same e-mail adress as your using for your battlenet account in the top field and the letters you can read in the bottom, then press the button (but you probably already knew this). You'll probably receive updates about the launch in Japan, and once released the pack.....hopefully!
Piloted Shredder is the reason I now run Eydis Darkbane in my Dragon Priest deck. Since you already run 4 buffs (2x PW:S and 2x Velen's Chosen) you can play Eydis on turn 3 and if it's not immediately answered the dream is to use PW:S and deal 3 to the Shredder. You can even use Holy Smite on Eydis if you're willing to gamble. Shredder is strong, but I don't think it's broken. It's a 4-drop that generally trades with two 2-drops, sounds fine to me.
They're not going to nerf it and things will get more powerful as the game ages. Call it power creep if you want, but the real story is that if you release a new card of equal or lesser power than existing cards, people don't rush out to spend money on the newly released cards. Expect to have a few "overpowered" cards in every release to push sales of the new content. Sarcastic side note: why is a piloted shredder video featured eight hundred years after piloted shredder was "news"?
"I find it interesting how all the cards in the meta game interweave and rely on each other in some way" That is the definition of meta game, yes. Thanks for pointing that out, pendantic youtuber!
It should be a 3/3 or something. In the past deathrattle minions didn't trade particularly well (see creatures such as Haunted Creeper or Harvest Golem)... they were sticky minions but not powerhouse minions.Shredder on the other hand trades very well AND you get something new that's potentially overpowered out of it... and even if you get something average it's still an insane powercreep when you consider the total stats it actually gives you.This card is an aberration but Blizzard doesn't seem to care for some reason. I don't understand why, because Shredder is so stifling and smotheringly strong that it basically locks down the 4 drop slot and therefore there's less of an incentive to buy more cards. You need Shredder and that's it. What am I missing?
I don't think the card is broken by any means, but depending on the board and/or posible answers in your hand, this card can be a bit priblematic to face.
