I was doing an 80-gold quest and my opponent was playing Highlander Hunter. My opponent won both games solely because of Zephrys the Great. I was playing an OTK Hunter with King Krush in case you were curious.
First game I was sitting comfortably behind 2 Khartut Defenders only for Zephrys to come out and ruin my day, giving him a Mass Dispel. Second game I had a Freezing Trap to deal with his Siamat only for Zephrys to give him SI:7 Infiltrator and remove my secret. I had to try my hardest not to flame at him because my blood was boiling after losing both games to a single card.
Zephrys has ruined the game for me. The fact that it can single-handedly swing the game in your favor with such a small deckbuilding restriction is so unfair. If Team 5 prints a ton of Discover and game-swinging cards in the next expansion, I'll probably just quit for good.
Yes and it's like this game after game. Strategy and smart plays mean nothing versus rng in this sad game.
Because there is nothing random about the RNG in this game. Every aspect if the game is manipulated by the system. The outcomes are predetermined. You don't play this game - you watch it.
They have not yet made the game even remotely creative. It's perfect card after perfect card. Battleground lethals are almost always the exact number required. There is never a point when you are thinking "I don't know how this is going to end". There aren't any surprises.
Ugh. I basically haven't touched standard this month - because standard is garbage - but end up playing priest for some dailies today. So rn I'm at bronze-fucking-4 - and I come up against tier demon hunter. On the 28th of the month.
To make matters worse, it isn't even a bad matchup for this deck (tempo early game into control late game, leaning mostly on Gala to give card advantage). Just have trouble winning that matchup when they have a complete list and I don't draw any of my sweepers. And of course the coward won't accept the friend request so I can ask him why he's in bronze with tier demon hunter with 2 days left in the month. If he's legit just going for a last minute ladder, no problem, but I suspect it's a silver smurf.
Really though, I just fucking hate the class they decided to introduce. Freaking devs hey. "Let's make a class that's still tier 1 after 3 or 4 nerfs, and make it so accessible that just about every new player has the complete list!".
Yeah.....let me reiterate my sentiments from a few days ago.
If you are a mill player, you are an absolute piece of trash. Out of all the play styles, milling is the absolute most piece of trash way to win.
Too bad their isn't chat system where a mill player can inform their opponent before hand the mill player is a douche bag. You can't really use the friends list, because most mill players don't have any.
Not only did I disconnect just waiting for my opponents turn to end(shockingly with this garbage internet that I am being forced to use never managed to resume game) when I had a zero-cost maligns and the rest of my combo ready(both my eviscerate's and shadow dagger were drawn early on and thus not discounted in anyway so I couldn't combo him that very Gala pop) and 6/6 + 8/8 body for next turn against a Valeera with 20 health whose only plays on their turn, at least what I saw before I dc'd, was Hanar, one taunt lackey, heist baron + 3 coins since they out of mana into wand....then my game dies.....every day so far in hell
This is made even worse by the fact that they are a GOLDEN valeera using a HORDE card back.....just the lore inaccuracy was going to make me try and add so I could insult his poor choice for a card back regardless if I lost(which was unlucky unless he was God himself) or won, now I won't ever get the chance :(
no longer losing to lack of skill since being brought to hell sucks so much
Even in arena one isn't safe from hearthstone ever-present discover bullshit. Druid into emerald explorer into ysera (of fucking course) which, with plenty of cards left in his deck and he not having a sliver of card draw, drew him an onyxia, a nozdormu, the 5/3 divine shield rush and a queen alex within the next two turns. He'd played like shit and had no board presence up to that point but hey random to the fucking rescue. So bloody annoying.
For some reason I've been enjoying Battlegrounds again, but runs like this threaten to derail it.
Round 1: Yogg (so same minion quality as me except +1/+1) Round 2: Rafaam (so almost always staying on 1 and thus having an extra minion) Round 3: AFK (so biggest power spike) Round 4: Deryl (a couple extra stats but not as bad as the other 4) Round 5: Eudora (so, unless she gets a turn 1 token, likely first golden minion off her power)
Not fun times to get 4/5 very low rolls like that >.<
Edit: ha! Guess I should save my salt for post match. While those first 5 rounds put me down to 20-something, I actually ended up winning. Playing as Kragg with a murloc build, managing to hold on until turn 10 to get a big T5 boost, and while not getting Brann until a turn or two later, getting two Megasaurs which resulted in singular battlecries... of divine shield, then poisonous. So I guess that bad luck at the start got outweighed by the good luck of turn 10.
Edit 2: I will say, though, that I still find Zerus to be a really bad inclusion in the game mode. There's enough high and low rolling already that they don't need a card that can be so obnoxious due to how high it can roll (literally capable of tier 6 on tier 2). Yes, I get that on average it'll low roll, but not only can it roll insanely high, but you can also reroll it if it's too low for your liking. A 3 coin investment just sitting in your hand, but at least you aren't resigned to that bad outcome if it happens. Getting a key T5 or T6 unit at T3 (usually when Zerus highrolls) can set in motion the events that determine the rest of the game.
Yeah, I bet the code behind that RNG stuff is beyond bad. FIve times the same generated card, "RNG" my ass.
Also, game as Mage, RNG fucks me hard. Game against Mage, perfect RNG from lietrally every RNG effect. Rigged shitgame. Don't criticise bliuzz or your account is fucked. Freedom people, go delete them pls.
