Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft just had its newest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. In case you missed some of these exciting new developments, you should know that this expansion came with quite the premise.
Blizzard has comprised an interesting infographic showing how much of the city is controlled by each family. These percentages are actually a reflection of how often the classes associated with these families are played. For instance, the Kabal family leads with 37% control, meaning that Mage, Priest, and Warlock are the most played classes in Hearthstone.
That’s interesting, because Priest has actually been under quite a bit of scrutiny thanks to the last two expansions being sort of lackluster for the class.
An entire 34% of the turf belongs to the Grimy Goons. The associated classes are Warrior, Hunter, and Paladin. Imagine Uther and Garrosh riding around town in a 1920s style automobile. Ever since The League of Explorers Warrior has received quite a resurgence in play. Even with the cycling out of Grim Patron decks thanks to the nerf to Warsong Commander.
Finally with 29% remaining, Rogue, Druid, and Shaman in the Jade Lotus family are the least played classes in the game. This is surprising because, ever since the launch of Whispers of the Old Gods, Shaman has become one of the most common competitive classes in the game.
