This is meant to be lighthearted, not a way to get a jab in at someone or anything like that. I’m curious to hear some self-inflicted hearthstone horror stories as there’s not much going on in HS yet. Perhaps we can help someone avoid repeating our mistakes.
I’ll start: Almost a year ago now, I was looking through my collection to see what cards I was missing while enjoying another beer. It was late and I was too tired to play anymore, so I decided to look at pretty card art by crafting some of them golden to hear their voice lines and check out the animations, and then undoing to get my dust back. I ended up crafting and accidentally clicking away from this magnificent card and he’ll likely stay there to embarrass me forever:
Lesson learned: Come to Hearthpwn or go to Youtube if you want to see a card’s animations, and don’t drink and craft my friends.Plus you can always get disconnected so it’s really not worth the risk!
I started playing HS after an ilness, and found this wonderful game as a great time filler and hobby as I recovered. After I leveled up all my heroes, and bought all the available adventures and cards I could, I then wanted to build complete decks I found online, for as many classes as I could.
As I built my collection, I would check to see if I could dust a card based on the % of times that card is in a deck. Not knowing anything about dust cost, the meta at the time, the diff between Basic set and expansions and especially ROTATIONS!
Long story short, I dusted alot of legendaries and cards that I still needed in order to build a few decks that were ROTATING OUT IN A FEW WEEKS!!!
I started playing HS right at the end of Reno Jackson and all those cards, so I basically wasted 1000's of dust value for cards that went to Wild almost right away. I also dusted cards like Harrison Jones cuz at the time he was only in 1 or 3% of decks!!! LOL
By far my biggest regret as a wild player is to see that there are so many archetype possible and in the end ONLY play against Secret Mage, Raza and Big Priest... Just cause those decks let's you win without even having to think... That's sad...
Biggest regret was crafting some GVG cards in golden that never saw play like Anubrak (loved the infinite value) and prince gallawix (understated the value of coins back then).
Recently I regret a lot crafting Zuljin and Sadge in golden. The decks i tryed for zuljin did not work well at all, so a bit sad (maxima tonk hunter) and Reno secret mage was too boring . so 6400 dust wasted. Zuljin might be used one day, Sadge maybe too.
Imagine this: the year is 2017 and the year of kraken is rotating out. However they havent yet made it so your arena deck auto-resets when the rotation happens, so I made a deck of 15 cards on my Asian server account and waited to the end of the year to finish the deck so the deck had cards from 9 expantions! BRM, TGT, LoE, WOG, Kara, MSG, Ungoro, KFT and KnC + basic and classic... (0-3. Unrecorded).
My biggest regret is not playing from the day my friend told me about Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.
My attention was diverted by Ingress, if I would only know it will turn into colorfull shit, I would play less Ingress and A LOT MORE of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. And I would be proud owner of Explorer's Map cardback now.
Those IFs... sheesh!
