    Charlie is the origin of the Bloodshards whereas Siren (especially after the rewording) States that you are the origin.

    That's not what they are saying.

    They are saying that they are testing changes in the hope to find a better iteration of the card instead of just removing it forever.

    posted a message on Which packs to gift?
    Quote from Briskee >>

    since they'll be in standard for longer

    Expansions rotate as yearly sets. So Voyage (as the expansion of the current year) would rotate in two years. All expansions of the last year (Barrens, Stormwind, AV) will rotate together next year.

    On the matter of packs and returning players: there should be a free returning players deck (unless already claimed previously, I believe?), so go check them out if you are eligible. For packs, there is a guaranteed legendary in the first 10 of each expansion, which is probably better than 40 of a single expansion.

    There is also the Core set, a yearly rotating set of temporarily free cards: https://www.hearthpwn.com/cards?filter-premium=1&filter-set=1800&filter-unreleased=0&display=3

    And duplicate protection, so you won't open the same card again until you have two of each in the rarity bracket, which helps you in completing common and rare cards rather quickly and ensures that you only open new legendaries (dusting does count as having had the card).

    Now that you mention it....maybe I didn't.   I don't have any way to check so maybe that's all it was :(

    If you are running the deck tracker, you can check the replay.

    posted a message on Why wasn’t Mech Mage nerfed?
    Quote from T1meToDuel >>

    Man don't start with "the data..." because there is no data about how annoying playing against a deck or a particular card is. I remember Tickatus didn't have a good winrate, but he was among the most hated cards with good reason.

    Data is reason, "no fun to play against" is feelings. Yes, feelings can be polarizing when people see only one side (which is often the case when they lose and not when they crush mediocre decks with niche win conditions).

    Yes, different decks have different strategies and thus you need to adapt the play style of your deck to the match up. With Mech Mage you know what their plan is and can plan around that.

    Yes, there are also rare Trolden moments where the stars align and they have the perfect hand, draw the right cards and then omegacrush you and there is nothing you could have done- Those are rare and your own deck probably has something like that as well. Just that you are playing the deck and due to the rare nature will - surprise - rarely see them.
    You will also rarely see them from your opponent but with the way our monkey brains work, you will remember those because remembering bad or dangerous moments help us avoid them in the future. Just that our monkey brain has some trouble discerning between a lion trying to chew on our butt and a children's card game.

    Quote from Chusid >>

    It feels like every good deck nowadays has either the hero card of the class in it or the quest of the class [...]

    Two of the four live expansions were about Hero cards and Quests. So decks will run those, either because they are good or because no better cards are available.

    posted a message on If you are developer and you know some one of developers

    I sometimes hack up some code if I don't feel like manually doing stuff. Does that count? Anyway, I have written a post-it note:

    All trolling aside, there will be a balance patch later today and the meta will shift. Will it affect Paladin? Who knows.

    posted a message on Face Hunter in all forms needs to go.
    Quote from thedaywedied >>

    And if there isn't, there will be once balance changes hit and clear the way for hunter to go unchecked.

    This shows the lack of understanding on how deck types work. Go read the classic "Who's the beatdown?" article while you cool down.

    It's not Blizzard making changes so that Hunter or other aggro decks can shine and be T1 - it's the nature of the game that control decks take longer to refine precisely because they are reactive and need to figure out what works against the new meta.

    An aggro deck doesn't care. It will just throw out threats and hope those stick long enough to win the game. Hunter is great because the hero power works in favour. Zoo Warlock was great because the HP kept the threats going. Pirate Warrior and Naga DH have enough draw to achieve the same. Etc.

    A control deck needs to find the balance of right cards to deal with wave after wave. That's why Control Warrior works in the current meta.

    posted a message on Tavern Pass bonus card P2W
    Quote from Aventurier >>

    so f2p players should disenchant 90% of their collection, which they use to basically ... you know... play the game ?  being restricted to standard, to have a meta card.

    ok.

    pay2dust

    The game is build around cards that you can obtain through either crafting with dust or by pulling them from packs.

    There is the option to spend money on packs or the reward track instead of grinding gold for the packs.

    If you decide to be f2p and not spend money, then you need to grind. If you think that Finley is so essential to a deck, then yes, dusting a large portion of your collection might be a way to quickly obtain enough dust to craft the card.

    There are also 29 other cards in a deck which are probably not all from the Core set and therefore also require dust or packs.

    So yeah, I still don't get why a guaranteed legendary from the paid reward track is an issue if you decided to play the grind version of the game.

    Yeah, I don't get it. There are no bonus cards only available on the rewards track or anywhere else. Spend dust on them if you want to be f2p.

    posted a message on Unintentional Zephrys nerf and more
    Quote from Gray_Fox >>

    Yes he can't read, but you have to admit that being opposed to 8 and 9 mana minions with big stats and one with deathrattle, he would at least offer polymorph. Seriously it feels like he never offers good cards, why is protector there? There is always one useless card that could be something else.

    Why would he offer Polymorph? It leaves a minion up, which is lower priority to killing and thus fully removing it.
    Zeph will also not offer other Silence effects because they don't do anything with your board state.

    The priorities are:

    • lethal if possible - it's not for your board because the opponent is immune, thus there can't be lethal.
    • dealing with the board - board clears or single target, that's what you have: BGH and Shadowflame
    • healing - lower priority because it only delays instead of dealing with the board
    • some misc and niche stuff

    Zeph will also offer a card from each bucket depending on the weighting. So you will get damage, single target or aoe removal and then one slot will be a random "look what I found!" option. That's what Argus is here.

    And no, you wouldn't play Zeph for Poly, Silence or Flare. You would play it for Nether, Fireball, Wild Growth and not some finicky, niche stuff that is highly depending on board states and "what if" conditions.

    Have a look at the other Zeph threads about "why not Hex", "why not Poly", "why not Flare" for dozens of reasons why that's not where you rely on Zeph.
