So another priest vs warlock game. Literally nothing happens until turn 4 except for him life tapping on turn 2. On his turn 4 he plays The Dark Portal and I am preparing for the worst and that he just pulled his Tickatus. Then he follows it up with a coin and Felosophy. Yep, bad news bears. So my turn 5? I kindly ask him to share his thoughts with the class... NOW! What do I find in his hand? Two one mana uncorrupted tickatus. How much mana do I have leave? Exactly two. :D https://hsreplay.net/replay/DjmZ3kGf4PJdZuMexWQJzD
To his credit, he didn't concede to me burning 10 cards from his deck before swapping back.
Just got OTKd by a warr - and it was apparantly [i]accidental[/i] as the warr didn't think it would be doubled to face! Wasn't expecting leaving a spell damage to minion doubler out to be 38 dam, but that was a nice way to lose :) Ashtongue, Silas, Slam, GG :) Loving that it was accidental, too, that's just the icing on the cake.
As a counterpoint to the last post in the Salt Thread, I did it. Eeked my way into Diamond 5, first time I climbed this high in the new system (first time I saw the new system really) since I only came back a month ago. But it was a grind from hell, I must have been on the very brink of hitting Diamond 5 like 10 times but always got pushed back a few steps back. Just in time too because my deck gets nerfed later today.
Bonus happy points: Some priest was one the ropes, I had the board, my hand was monster, next turn he way dead. Takes my hand and deck with the legendary, my hand is low and discounted, plays all, turns it around, has a good chance of winning now. My turn I draw his own Zephrys, lethal him :D
Playing Galakrond Rogue back in standard again has been a great deal of fun to me. It was the first deck I reached legend with, so it holds a special place in my heart.
It's amazing really just how different it is drawing 0 cost cards compared to 1 cost. The hero card actually feels like you can swing the game with it again. I was able to survive against a face hunter and burn mage. Even muscled a win against a bomb warrior by just throwing lackeys at him over and over.
Also, no more sadness of drawing Backstab or Shadowstep and having them brought up to (1). Finally!
I was doing some achievement work and wondering if I'd ever be able to get the "kill an opponent with mankrik" one when, wonder of wonders, I bumped into a bot for the first time in a month or more. Joy of joys, I was able to get a couple of other achievements and the mankrik one as well. Thanks bot, greatly appreciated.
Opponent replying Thank You to my Well Played at the end of a match.
No I did not mean to post in the Salt thread, it is so ridiculously pathetic it never fails to make me laugh, especially if they won. I just can't help but think wow you are such a sad little person and then I move on to the next game with zero salt. So not only is it pathetic it doesn't even work.
To the rogue I was facing yesterday on NA servers (I was a warlock) around 6:45pm. I didn't rope and leave the match to be a dick, my wife went into labor with our daughter. If you read this, let's do a rematch.
