    posted a message on Honestly I don't understand why people play this game anymore.

    I don't really enjoy Hearthstone anymore but I'm in too deep (since Beta) so I keep playing but I'm finding my stretches of time away from the game are growing. 

    There is no real variety and net-decking is pretty tedious (but basically necessary if you want to be competitive at all) so I don't find as much impetus to boot the game up as often. This is partly down to the fact that we just rotated a ton of cards out but it's more down to the philosophy of Team5 that I don't think has been good since Brode left the company. 

    I'm finding way more fun to be had in Final Fantasy XIV these days

    Don't know why people are surprised. Team 5 has been shite since Brode left.

    posted a message on Why is Waste Warden not seeing play right now?

    It's just not good enough. Even in its most ideal situation, you're still spending five for a 3/3 that clears a bunch of low health minions at its absolute peak efficiency. 

    The rest of the time it's a dead draw and there are better options at the 5 mana slot.

    Maybe if it was a 5 mana 3/5 with taunt that dealt 4 to all minion types it might see some play.

    posted a message on Legend Rank Moonfang + Al'ar Rez Priest (9-5) - Super Fun

    Galakrond can easily fit in Priest without the full invoke package. It has one of the weakest Galakrond effects fully invoked but one of the very best hero powers so it is more than viable to put galakrond in alone without the package when it comes to priest.

     If you're going to have a moan at least understand what you're talking about first, eh.

    Grim Fandango -- It's old now but there is a remastered version. One of the most unique settings and the best stories ever. Simply one of the greatest games ever made. 

    Final Fantasy 9 -- Everyone has their favourite FF game. This is mine. 

    Mass Effect Trilogy -- Epic Sci-fi done right

    The Walking Dead Trilogy -- I never cared much for the TV show. Clem's journey is way more compelling

    Hearthstone -- The stories I have to tell myself to keep justifying playing this fucking game are truly inventive.

    posted a message on Priest and mage nerfs when

    These salt threads are highly annoying, especially since we have a dedicated mega thread for it. your salt is not more worthy than those that post in the correct thread. 

    THAT SAID, I don't subscribe to the idea that more shouldn't be done to keep wild a bit more balanced (it will never be properly balanced but truly degenerate decks ruin the format altogether.) 

    Personally I'd like to see new wild modes that only utilize certain combinations of sets (you can change it every 1 or 2 months or something.) 

    This would allow players to have fun in entirely different metas and it would be way more balanced because it wouldn't have every card available. 

    If it became popular then I could see people buying more wild packs which could make it lucrative for Blizzard alongside keeping the game fresh in-between expansions but we all know they don't give a toss about the format and are only interested in keeping people jonesing for news sets.

    posted a message on Legendaries with Poor Stats

    Having a legendary with a specific effect come down earlier or be able to be combo'd with other cards is often vital to the effect. 

    Is a 6 mana 6/6 Zola the Gorgon preferable over the 3 mana 2/2 version we got? Clearly not. The 3 mana 2/2 version is WAY better. 

    Stats, in that case, are in a distant third of importance compared to the actual effect and cost of the card. 

    What is the better legendary? Bloodmage Thalnos with its paltry 1/1 stats or Majordomo Executus with its beefy body and effect? 

    Bloodmage is a far better card. 

    The effect of a legendary is way more important than the stats attached. That isn't to say that this is always the case of course. If you look at a card like Archmage Arugal then his 2/2 stats stopped what could have been a very good effect from ever really breaking into the meta because it almost never survived on board. That's usually the exception rather than the rule though.

    posted a message on The absolute state of this game Anno Domini 2020

    What's Blizzard's idea on dealing with 5 secrets from all classes? Do they think as a casual player I'll memorize them, or am I OBLIGATED to use Hearhtpwn's secrets calculator? 

    Umm, yes? It's a competitive card game in a ranked mode. You are absolutely meant to know the secrets your opponent could have played and which ones are currently viable in the meta. The fact that you would think having to learn some aspects of the actual game to get past PLATINUM ranked mode is unreasonable is asinine. 

    Hearthstone is not a difficult game but having knowledge about the cards and decks currently being played is kind of mandatory if you want to continue progressing in ranked mode. Would you play World of Warcraft and expect to do well in raid content if you didn't know your own classes rotation or the mechanics of the fight? 

    The game does have issues with balance and the design philosophy that Team5 employs is often inexplicable. There are valid reasons to be annoyed with the state of the game but I think your complaints are aimed at some really unavoidable features of CCG's.

    posted a message on Wrenchcalibur needs to be Hall of Famed

    There is a dedicated salt thread. 

    There are hard counters for Bomb Warrior already in the game, although why you'd want to run them in this meta is anyone's guess. Just accept you got wrecked by a fully off-meta deck and move on.

    I feel your pain guys. Team 5 are incompetent I'm afraid. It's been a shitshow since Brode left. The fact that they continue to ignore the best aspects of Hearthstone in favour of the most frustrating and unfun mechanics and balancing is just tiresome at this point.

    posted a message on DH it is balanced now or need next nerfs?

    It's like they completely forgot that you have 30hp in Hearthstone. Nothing about DH is balanced around that fact. But it's not a surprise really. Team 5 have been fully incompetent since Brode left.

    posted a message on The whole demon hunter class need a rework

    So this is going to keep happening. 

    People are going to complain about Demon Hunter and then people will complain about people complaining about Demon Hunter, etc. 

    Yes, there are too many topics saying basically the same thing but the points being made are valid. The nerfs were a failure because the design philosophy of the class was borked from the start. 

    Being able to chain massive face damage turns that would make the most abusive hunter and warrior decks of yore blush is not good design. Giving Demon Hunter this ability without ANY OTHER WEAKNESSES is downright incompetent.  

    The card draw is insane, the mana reduction is insane, the class cards are completely overtuned, etc. It just seems unfathomable how they managed to mess it up so badly. 

    I'm fine with Demon Hunter being a strong class just so we're clear; but there are decks that feel horrible to lose to because you don't feel like you ever had a chance. This is DH's entire class identity. The card chaining is still broken after the nerfs. Simple as that. 

    If we take the nerf to Altruis the Outcast as an example you really have to admit that it seems like Team5 don't have a great grasp of what they're doing. 

    Their logic was that by increasing the mana cost by one the card would be slower and less abusive. But this is obviously not the case. Demon Hunter doesn't care that this card comes down slightly later. They can still chain to their heart's delight while smacking you in the face AND clearing your entire board. It's like they refuse to admit that their design from the start is....well... it's not good. Until they do people are going to be upset getting steamrolled by this class without feeling they had any say in the matter.

    This deck abuses Sethekk Veilweaver for crazy value turns so minion targeting spells are favoured.
