    posted a message on Stealer Of Souls In Wild Mode Will Be No More!

    Back when Standard was first announced I was really happy, as it was probably the first time Hearthstone really felt fresh. Now, looking back, I think that was one of the worst decisions Blizzard has ever made in HS's life. Wild became unplayable, Standard gets boring after a month each expansion and Classic is dead. Honestly, I believe it's finally time to stop this game's developement and work on something new. Be it "Hearthstone 2" or whatever else, but Blizzard has to finally make strict choices, if they want to survive on the CCG market. A lot of people are already switching to other games and even though HS is still the most popular, I don't think it will be for much longer.

    posted a message on VS Report is WRONG, Control Warrior is Legit!

    I love control Warrior, but it really gets wrecked by Deathrattle DH and there are tons of these on the ladder. Other than that it definitely deserves more appreciation than it currently gets. Although, I myself prefer the Frenzy package with Saurfang.

    posted a message on Shaman is STILL the underdog

    I don't want to be THAT guy, but Shaman has 2nd highest winrate out of all classes in Standard with a 0.4% difference from the 1st place. I myself have had around 80% winrate with Elemental Shaman since the release of the mini set. I usually understand rant posts, but this one isn't even true lol.

    posted a message on What do you think about luck?

    Honestly Hearthstone is a game with one of the smallest overall skill cap. I don't want to be rude to anyone, but that is something I myself realized some time ago. Obviously there is a certain margin of skill that you can learn and practice to become better at Hearthstone, but compared to other games, that aspect is incredibly underwhelming in terms of it's importance and impact on the gameplay. In short, I cannot say if it's a good thing or a bad thing, but luck pays a huge role and kind of overshadows the players' skill involvement.

    posted a message on Class Competition Number Eight

    I have been following the discussion and have just one question. Does it mean in weak four we will have to "dump" some cards from the previous phases? I mean the "core set consolidation" involves leaving some cards in the Legacy set, right?

    Quote from memo333 >>

    The last mini set was the same....greed-zard simply watch the meta decks and make them stronger so u are forced to get it to stay competitive----and since everyone is playing the same net deck crap....SO WHY NOT?

     

     

     Most card from the last mini set are not even seeing any play at the moment (we're obviously talking about Darkmoon Races). The previous one ("Galakrond's Awakening") was the same. Honestly my prediction is that the cards will either try to help existing archetypes like you said, or try to create new ones, but either way they will simply not work in meta...

     Yeah, I also saw this website, but later looked a bit into it. It shows statistics only on Steam amd well.... I didn't even know you could play Gwent on steam. Most players either use GOG or the CDP launcher, which don't have specific playercount data. I was also surprised, but it seems, like it's impossible to find accurate statistics. I guess it's much easier in Hersthstone, because you can only play it through Battle.net, while Gwent is on a lot of different platforms.

    My favorite CCG is Gwent and even though it's considered less popular than others, statistics show that it actually has more active players than Hearthstone. 

     Huh?

    Gwent has 1400 players online on average. Hearthstone has around 200 000 players online. 

     Well, I was wrong then, but it doesn't really change my point. Looking for an opponent still takes less time in Gwent than it does in HS for some reason. But I genuinely thought the statistics I remembered were correct, so it seems like I was mistaken. Still, couldn't care less about the player count anyway :P

    Edit: Found the info I remembered, so either this person is bullshitting, or the other player count is using some different criteria. Here is the link: https://forums.cdprojektred.com/index.php?threads/how-many-people-play-gwent.10092771/

    posted a message on How does Hearthstone stack up to other card games?

    The obvious answer is no. The reason? In my opinion - the direction Blizzard took. At this point Hearthstone is clearly aimed at younger audience, meaning kids specifically. The art is becoming more and more cartoonish, the jokes and card texts are kind of awkward, but this is not my biggest problem. The real issue is the fact that Hearthstone is incredibly simple. Really at this point it's probably simplier than Minecraft and this makes deckbuilding experiance awful. My favorite CCG is Gwent and even though it's considered less popular than others, statistics show that it actually has more active players than Hearthstone. However, I'd still play it even if I it was unpopular. Then reasons are:

    1. Flavor - Hearthstone became a weird childish parody of Warcraft, while Gwent is just as flavorful as the Witcher (books, games etc.). The cards' are designed extremely well and it all matches the universe it's based on.

    2. Diversity - In Hearthstone trying to experiment means getting depression through constant losses. In Gwent you can genuinely experiment and reach Pro rank with a homebrew deck. 

    3. Skill - In Hearthstone there isn't really much skill required, as the cards are very simple and even the "craziest" shaenennigans can be learned in a few games. Gwent is very complicated, even to the point that you can still not understand how a card works after playing a lot of games with it in your deck. It may seem discouraging at first, but believe me, the satisfaction is amazing.

    I could write a lot more of these, but overall Gwent is not "new player friendly", but even though there are much more cards than in HS the progression system is definitely much better and more satisfying.

    Obviously I would be happy to participate as always. I wonder though, if we would be to follow the initiate set style, or the new core set one.

    posted a message on Rogue is DEAD !

    Rogue is not dead. Old Miracle Rogue with Penflinger is dead, but that doesn't mean the whole class is. If you try playing the same deck as before, you will obviously lose. There supposedly is a pretty good Secret list, try that one.

    posted a message on Mage is fun, right?

    Yeah, it's already incredibly oppressive in Standard, but in wild it is an entirely different kind of oppressive... The fact this issue has not yet been adressed by Blizzard only proves that they don't care about wild at all.

    posted a message on D3 -> Legend Rush Warrior New Meta!

    By now I have managed to reach D6, but fell down to D8. The deck is great, but more and more people are playing it on the ladder and mirror matchups are usually 50/50.

    posted a message on What is your favorite META ever played in Hearthstone?

    Probably unpopular opinion, but mine was Saviors of Uldum. There were tons of great cards around, mainly the new LoE Legendaries and quests. Doom in the Tomb was the best mid-expansion event as well btw.
