Three people now have declined friend request from me. The hunter who had just enough burst in hand to kill me, I would have told him that the very next turn I would have played Reno Jackson and Youthful Brewmaster. You were ahead of me by one turn.
To the secret paladin who I held off for so long -- through two mysterious challengers and a tirion, I got you to fatigue, but I had 11 cards left in my deck, and my Reno Jackson wasn't one of them. Unfortunate for me, because had I drawn that a turn sooner, I would have won that game. Survived all the secrets, survived all the shielded mini bots and the dr. boom, the tirion, the mechs. Lost to a Knife Juggler and truesilver champion.
And to the shaman... I guess that's why shamans are so overpowered right now. Perfect start with the trog, follow up with wolves, tuskarr totemic summoning mana tide totem, and whirling zap-o-matic with a bloodlust right on turn 5.
Usually people decline friend requests to avoid assholes raging about the loss / gloating about the win. Doesn't seem like what you're doing is too far off from that too though.
I mean, you could've played Reno and Brewmaster. So what? Do you really need to tell your opponent that to feel better about it? And because your opponent didn't want to hear it, you made a thread on the forums?
The fact of the matter is, you still lost all three of those games, and I'm pretty sure that none of those people you wanted to add as friends particularly cared if you had Reno Jackson or not. If it were me in their shoes, I definitely wouldn't, unless you were playing a genuinely interesting deck and you were a turn away from some kind of crazy double Malygos surprise lethal or something.
If you just wanted to rant about how lucky they were or how unlucky you were, we have a salt thread for that.
It's specifically due to friend requests like this where someone will either shake salt at you or insult you for winning that most people ignore friend requests. Saddens me actually, because I personally only send friend requests when I want to compliment my opponent's list/play, ask them a question, or point out a missed lethal in a constructive manner, and having people be paranoid about friend requests like these are why many such requests get ignored.

Apparently, Hearthpwn won't save your signature if it's empty.
I've had hit and miss results with friending people. Usually the hardcore players don't friend me because their used to my decks. The ones that accept my requests or send me requests are usually like "OMG YOU PLAYED RAGNAROS! I'VE BEEN PLAYING SINCE BETA AND I DON'T HAVE A SINGLE LEGEND!"

Been playing Hearthstone since March 2015. Avid theory crafter and card conceptualizer.
I rarely accept requests regardless of the outcome. The last time I did, it involved salt, both in terms of my deck and me as a person. (I didn't respond, but I thought, "Do you always talk to women this way, or just your mother?"
I find myself only sending requests when I think my opponent has a cool name. That's why I have friends like Fat Geisha (love geishas), Gato Loco (Spanish for "crazy cat") and Whovian Girl. :D
Hey, I noticed this thread, and I was wondering how you actually add someone you recently battled with. Is there a way to do this? I know it shows who you last played against, and I've tried typing in peoples names but that doesn't seem to be enough to to add them. Can someone help me with this?
The one reason I send people requests when they beat me is rather simple. I have three friends only and all of them play very rarely or have quit playing. So, when I get a 'Watch and Learn' it sits in my quests for an eternity - as is the case right now. Naturally, nobody accepted any of them, and I think this thread gave me some possible reasons for that.
