I hear ya. Just trying to ingrain in peoples minds to check for all possible actions before ending the turn. Practice makes perfect, even if that practice is checking for value before clicking the button.
I think that forget-to-attack mistake is kinda trivial. Almost never happened to me or my opponent before, not counting dc. Next time, maybe you should introduce more important mistakes like fail trading, play minions instead of removals, wrong minion choice, etc.
It may seem trivial with such a weak minion, but I have seen times where a 5-7 atk minion forgot a free chance to swing. Though this series applies to players of all skill levels, it is targeted to new ones more so than others. Episode 4 will be up shortly, let me know your thoughts. I appreciate the feedback, the series is still new and I want to be sure the stuff I go over is helpful and/or entertaining to all on some level!
Isn't Hearstone such an exciting game? But are we eager enough to end our turn as soon as we play our cards? Well, this player was. So much so that he decided not to use his Stonetusk Boars charge effect. This mistake is disgustingly common in Arena, and I can't exclude myself from the guilty list. Hearthstone is, after all, designed to be fast paced. But when there is only one card to play and one action to take, 90 seconds is plenty of time to ensure you maximized your turns value.
Summary of events:
1. Opponent gets to go first, plays Stonetusk Boar and does not attack. Passes turn back to me.
2. I play Northshire Cleric, end turn.
Lessons Learned: Don't ignore free damage, even if its just 1. 10 turns down the road that could be life or death. Tame your trigger finger, not your Stonetusk Boar :)
