I’ve got some good news, or bad news, depending on whether you like to watch the pre-release streams. On the one hand, it’s pretty fun to check out the new cards played so early, and it doesn’t do much harm to the actual meta (because let’s be honest, a few streamers won’t discover what’s best in such a limited environment). On the other hand, it ruins the fun for some people, showcasing which cards might work well and which not. But more competitive players feel obligated to still watch it despite that, exactly because it’s better to theorycraft based on limited experience than none experience at all.
Still, tomorrow (July 30 at 9 AM PT / 18:00 CEST), 16 popular streamers / pro players will be streaming Scholomance Academy and making their own decks / testing them among themselves. Here’s the list of announced players:
If we go by the previous theorycrafting livestreams, more players might join them over the next few days.
