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.
Is there actually MMR before you lose all your bonus stars? Bronze seems to be a crapshoot.
I didn't even make silver in standard last month (played almost entirely wild - got to like bronze 2 from the few standard games I played with Galapriest hard control), yet get matched up against a complete T1 tempo DH list. So something that would probably be T4 at best, against T1 - seems legit. XD Never mind that demon hunter is just a super obnoxious class to play/play against - for the most part, it doesn't require any thought, just dump out your high tempo hand and hope for some timely outcasts.
I honestly would've preferred it if Blizz's way to lure in new players was to make all classes have some competitive viability with very budget decks - as opposed to giving all new players a super high powered class, so that's what we're largely stuck playing against.
Edit: ha, at least a lot of them are pathetically bad. Never mind the newbies that, for some reason, queue into wild with a 100% standard deck (where it'd almost certainly have a lower winrate than in the standard queue), but this latest opponent coined out that Feywing Blade (2 mana 1/2 weapon that spawns two 1/1s), and hit face with one of the charges, then revealed on turn 2 that they had Battlefiend in hand, which would've made for a much better, non-coin turn 1 play. But then they also played post-nerf Aldrachi Blades, so /shrug.
Also, 3 out of 4 daily games today against demon hunters. What a fucking plague. XD
Just got my fourth 1,000 win char. Proceeded to go on a streak where I lost 5 games in a row in 7 or less turns. One was a face warrior that shuffled two bombs into my deck. With 24 cards in my deck I top decked them back to back. Can't make this shit up.
Gotta ramp up those mindless perfect draws to attract the new players.
If you have been playing the game as long as I have the manipulation is blatantly obvious. Every game ends with a royal flush on the river.
Nuts, nuts, nuts, nuts, top deck, top deck, top deck, top deck, nuts, nuts, nuts, nuts, top deck, top deck, top deck, top deck. Every mother fucking game. I prob have a 10 percent wr this month if that. It’s fucking bs. I’m tired of my road to legend every fucking month being this kind of bs. If I lose fucking fine I don’t fucking care if I lose. But I’m tired of losing to people with legit fucking downs where it’s always me vs my opp and the bs programming. I never get gl ever I never sack I never top deck and I’m sick of always losing in contrary fashion. Fucking goddamn sick of it! Fix your shit Bli$$ you pos sack of shit company!
If I deal blackjack with the cards face up to my niece and give her a 21 every hand she is going to think that she is a card shark.
The people that think that they are good at this game are just as delusional. I have all gold heroes (4 with over 1,000 wins) and I recognize the fact that it has nothing to do with skill or strategy. Top decking the game winner after drawing perfect cards on curve doesn't make you good at the game. Conversely watching your opponent top deck perfect counters to everything you play doesn't make you bad at the game.
It has become a spectator sport. We watch the system not-so-creatively manipulate the game to maintain an overall 50% win rate. It is basically on autopilot.
