    Are you running a deck tracker? If so, care to post match-up stats?

     How about I've been playing Hearthstone consistently since LoE? This is isn't hard. Anyone with half a brain can see exactly what I'm talking about.

    Sure, those with half a brain will nod in agreement while those without half their brain missing will know about biases.

    I mean you are quoting anecdotal occurrences when playing a niche deck and facing nothing but another niche deck "with some other classes sprinkled in" and then not care to provide proof but a 'no true Scotsman'. Guess what all the other people that claim it's rigged, are also not providing? It's only ever some talk about the patent, speculation about profit motivations and anecdotal evidence.

    When queuing into mostly Quest Hunter is your suspicion, why not just run a deck tracker in the background and post a weeks data? That should be easy and would be irrefutable proof for your claim.

    Also how about I got my beta invite 8 years today and I've been playing consistently since then without ever seeing proof of it being rigged? But I guess "just naive and lack any critical thinking", right?

    8 YEARS!

     How about saying that the matchups and gameplay are highly highly highly controlled to ensure some semblance of 50/50 WR? I see it as Blizz’s way of controlling the game/WR… others see it as “rigged” or “RNG”. I can understand both sentiments.
    Regardless, “controlling” aspects of the game are two fold… keeping new players from getting destroyed and quitting and the other is to make money, money, money. These aren’t mutually exclusive. 
    This is a company that tries to strike a balance between keeping players happy and keeping the shareholder happy.  With preference typically leaning towards the latter.

    Revisiting Deck of Chaos… still pretty bad unfortunately.  Only win 2 out of 7. Too slow.

    If you own a product which earn you tons of money you will probably do everything as well to control every aspect of it. This is understandable from the owner's side and it can be a frustrating experience at the player's side.

     I mean, you are not wrong. But we need to ask 2 questions if we think the game is rigged:

    1. How much profit increase does have Blizzard by rigging the game?

    2. How much can they lose if its ever get confirmed?

    So do you think its worth for the company? Because I think any sane person would just quit the game as soon as there is a proof of rigged rng. And I also think that rigging their game would NOT increase their profits at all.

    Sorry friend… but “yes” it is very much worth it to this company… if you don’t think it will increase their profits then I don’t know what to say without sounding condescending. Controlling winrates, matchups, even card draw is very beneficial to the bottom line.

    It's not rigged, it's you loosing much and dropping your mmr especially in diamond 5.

    When you loose so much and get pissed and try counter deck, guess what - other loosers think the same and go with counter decks as well.

    Win more and you will have no problems. Git gud issue 

    This is nonsense… dumbest comment on this thread. Maybe “rigged” has such a toxic connotation that fanboys here get triggered easily. The game is “highly controlled” might be better. I don’t waste my time beating myself up for losses nor do I put myself, or any other legend player, on a pedestal because I know that at the end of the day it really boils down to luck. Of course we all make mistakes whilst playing but they can be corrected eventually… might take longer for some but usually still corrected. But there will be days you win a lot and days you can’t do anything but lose. By in large, this game is “highly controlled” by Blizz and their business plan supports that strategy.

    This is fun… totally confuses your opp… I’m pretty sure it won’t last in the ladder, especially as the meta matures. But it’s a fun change of pace. Good job by the creator. 
    I only wish Kargal had a spot in it. Shame that he’s never going to see any worthy play.

    Fuck me… one of those days. Yesterday I could hardly lose but today I’m losing more than not. I didn’t fuck with my decks, didn’t forget how to play.. just played the hands this manipulative game gave me.  Sorry but it delegitimizes all thought of real skill and this player is definitely better than that player.

    Don’t tell me HS doesn’t fuck with your win rates… by fucking with your card draw and matchups. 

    Sorry for the potty words.

    I’ll leave my salt here… thank you.

    Ahh.. ok… thanks for help. That’s one ranked game I won’t get back. But at least I’ll know better next time.

    posted a message on Rattlegore question

    Just had a situation where my opp played Rattlegore. I knocked him down to 3 health remaining. I played the card that switches attack and health, making him a 3/9. However when I killed him he summoned back as an 8/8. Given the death rattle “resummon this with -1/-1), I think it should’ve been a 2/8. There’s probably an obvious and simple explanation for why it didn’t come back a 2/8 but I can’t think of it. Any ideas?

    Aggro wins! Gee fukin whiz… Who would’ve thought that!?!?!?

    Blizzard commencing/continuing Project “Dumb-Down” to turn the HS into a very easy peasy game for the masses. More people more $$$.

    If you want a game that forces you to get smarter play LoR.

    “Lol, there’s always the one day a month where you lose to every single deck that you normally beat 10/10 times because your deck doesn’t want to draw out how it should. Today is that day.

    See you tomorrow Blizzard.”

    feel ya… some days it’s better to just wait until the game rigging screws with someone else.

    Please stop bringing your top tier deck into casual… for craps sake I just want to get away from the monotony of those decks (shaman, DH, RNG Mage). I’m not going to bring my “just for fun” decks to standard. So please stop bringing your sweaty ass try hard decks into casual.

    posted a message on Patch 20.8.2 - Balance Changes for Priest and Druid - Bugfixes

    I can only think that Priest and Druid are going to do well in the next expansion(s). For what other reason would they not adjust Ele shaman or DH or the RNG shit show Mage. Neither priest nor token Druid are that worrisome on the ladder rn. 
    I just don’t see solid logic in Blizz’s nerfs… not for last several and certainly not now.

    posted a message on Mordresh Battle Mage

    This deck is only about 45-50%WR for me… but I wouldn’t say I’ve really mastered it. Definitely need a good mulligan.  I like a more minion based deck like this one. I’ve avoided her because the most recent decks have all relied on lucky-a$$ luck and that feels silly to me.

    Mainly doing the same… which is to say saving it… but I’m getting kinda bored and it’s burning a hole in my satchel! 

    Card backs could be fun… anyone want to tell us which card backs are worth your gold?
