After three years, our original "salt" thread reached an unruly 45 thousand replies and 2 million views. It was by far the most popular thread on our forums. We'll try and create new threads over time on a more regular basis going forward to keep things fresh.

You all must realize what thread this is, and the purpose of it.
This is a thread with the intended purpose of being an outlet for all of your salty moments. This absolutely does NOT invite others to come and make ignorant posts and belittle others out of boredom, fun, or any other reason.
People being salty are using the thread for it's intended purpose, some more abundantly than others. Posting to harass, flame, or otherwise provoke any other user is not acceptable in this thread, or any other thread. Keep it to yourself, or at the very least pm it.
This is not "that one thread where you can say anything you want". Take your nerves elsewhere. People are inherently on edge when they post here, we don't need others escalating things.
This is to some extent an attempt by reducing the number of rage threads, to focus everything on one place.
To make this work, follow these rules:
1. you can be angry but try to keep tone somewhat civil. The one or other f-bomb doesn't hurt though.
2. Be angry at everything BUT other members. This works when this is a place where you don't judge other people.
3. keep the forum rules in mind, no names and stuff.
So RNG screwed you over? Did you face the fifth 100 hp warrior with your favourite deck that's weak against warriors? Leave the rationality behind you, let the rage flow through you and when you cooled down, go back to the rest of the forum or game being relaxed again.
Man, can't believe Hearthpwn has killed the "salt" thread meta. I mean look at the state of this, there's nowhere near as many replies as in the old thread. Just gone down the drain, need to nerf this Fluxflashor guy.
A couple of years ago a man widely considered as a top genius PR guru at Team 5 suggested that it was a good idea to hype and unveil an expansion, but then wait for a friggin' month to continue on with the card reveals. Team 5 never questioned his transcendent wisdom, not for a split second and decided to employ his PR tactics for as long as there's expansions to print.
Call this what you want, but I have a curse when it comes to RNG in this game. I'm not losing my mind, this is for real.
In all of my 3 years playing this game I actually cannot recall getting "the nuts." At the very best I get mediocre hands. I'm not saying this happens every single time, but this happens so much I cannot stress this enough.
Meanwhile, my opponent always has the nuts. Every single game is a struggle, honestly. I have actually broke down in tears at how unlucky I can be, it us really soul crushing,and everytime I get so close to winning my opponent mounts the most epic come back. This happens no matter which format I'm in..I just cannot ladder up not because I'm bad I don't think I'm great at spotting certain things but I know enough and I try my hardest...
Arena is really weird for me. If I draft a really good deck, I do poorly because my opponent just gets the nuts, and when I draft at least a mediocre deck it does surprisingly well.
TD;LR I have literally the worst luck imaginable when it comes to this game. I'm sorry I said alot but I just had to get this off my chest. Maybe it'll make me feel better if some of you share my experience...but least to say I think it's time I hung up my hat on this game. My luck has officially run out.
