Un’Goro released properly a few days ago, and like last time an expansion was released, players could swear something’s not right with the new packs. Although it’s not quite as obvious as Gadgetzan’s tri-class replicas, players could have sworn that many cards they were getting with the new packs were duplicates – and there were far fewer legendaries than there should have been.
Blizzard have heard this and responded by saying… erm, that everything is actually working as intended.
Community manager Nik Gianozakos (aka Daxxarri) wrote on the forum about the issues: “We have seen a number of posts from our community today regarding Journey to Un’Goro packs and the possibility that they might be distributing an abnormally high amount of duplicate cards. We want to assure everyone that we have looked into this concern and have found that Journey to Un’Goro card distribution is working properly, both at a per card and per rarity basis, and is consistent with previous Hearthstone releases.”
As mentioned before, if it had turned out that the duplicate ratio was too high it wouldn’t have been the first time. Tri-class Gadgetzan cards were popping up extremely frequently last time, and Blizzard offered compensation that time. This time however it seems like Blizzard are satisfied everything’s working as it should. While some players have accepted Blizzard’s word and are glad that they will eventually be getting that new Epic or Legendary they want, some other players are disappointed that the amount of duplicates they got are considered ‘normal’.
There are also some people on the game’s subreddit talking about issues they’re having with the expansion, so maybe Un’Goro knocked something over when it entered the meta. It wouldn’t be unusual, given the size of some of the new beasts we’ve got to play with…
