    Yeah missing for me too. Also, I can't get the hero skin whereas tavern regular achievement appears completed.

    Also I love how "missing" command now doesn't take into account my golden cards. New collection manager is a clusterfuck, needs immediate fix.

    posted a message on "If you are bored with standard then play wild" *big sigh*
    Quote from SpaceTimeDream >>

    Well, I played wild until I reached Platinum rank and from there forward all I see are 3 decks, Secret Mage, Zoo Self-Damage Warlock and Resurrect Big Priest.

    All the cards in the world made available and people just netdeck and play 3 decks. Why people buy packs with real money for if they end up using a very small limited pool of them?

    I realize that am probably exaggerating things but playing Wild just proved to be the same as Standard. People netdecking with no promise of experimenting and making their own homebrewed decks. I am curious what happens with the physical TCG, if they too experience netdecking

    Rant over.

     Well, people suck the fun out of games because the vast vajority of them play only to win. 

    Let me give you an equivalent: Back when we were kids, my friends and I used to play an amazing (for its time) soccer game on the SNES, Kick Off 3. It had an amazing depth of play, really complicated combinations, a cool dribbling system and challenging AI...

    Until we found a glitch. You could press the high cross button from a specific area around the center of the field and it would fly straight to the goal, 100% score chance without fail. The game soon devolved to who can get to the center in the right location and abuse this more times within the match limit. I tried to impose a no-glitch rule but the other kids lost their interest in the game and eventually gravitated to other ones. Why? Because without it they had no chance of beating my best friend and me who played more hours and thus could play better.

    It's the same reason why 90% of soccer fans are with the top teams. People don't like to lose even when they don't play themselves.

    Physical TCG used to be way better than this, (bar magic, which was more "serious" and people had the same shitty philosophy). The reason was they were ridiculously expensive, especially when you were <18 years old. You could not collect everything nor predict the way the meta would evolve (and there were not a lot of  balance changes because it was difficult to do), so you usually picked a hero/faction/class or whatever the game had and you mained it. Everyone played different shit/what they liked, and it wasn't always competitive. In Hearthstone terms, everyone knew the others by deck, and few people had more than 3-4 real decks. You were the "Galvadon dude" or the "Barnabus main". In tournaments people from other areas would come and you could see in hearthstone terms matchups like Murlock Warlock VS spell damage Hunter. And guess what: It was awesome.

    Nowadays, you only have 1 way out: To have a good amount of RL firends or internet friends decent enough to have an understanding amongst you and play a game the way you want to. Otherwise, all games devolve into maximum-efficiency play to win crap, no fun allowed, no experimentation, nothing. See what happened to Overwatch. That's why Blizzard try to make it into a PvE experience so that people can actually pick their playstyle and hero and still win.

    I like the artwork, what I would love would be the option to see the full art by clicking. It is the only Runeterra feature I would desperately want in Hearthstone.

    Quote from Tyrant11305 >>

    I don't understand how this is a good card. Deal 3 for 2 at max is very solid, but it can't be used until turn 10! This card seems worse than useless!

     2 AoE for 2mana is where this will find the more use. Mid-game AoE that can be easily woven into turns. Plus we must wait and see if we'll get a holy spell booster. 

    Edit: This is a 2mana consecration. Not bad.

    Good question, I don't have an answer but in your case I'd simply try and see. You can do it after you reach a new ranked floor if you are scared of losing.

    Quote from C_A_W >>

     After this rotation, you will get her for free. After the next rotation, you need to craft her (assuming she leaves the core set, which is unlikely).

     Still sucks to have cards available only through crafting, especially with how high the dust cost is. Then again, Im one year early with my concern, they might figure out a better method by then.

    What happens with new cards in the core set? How can I acquire i.e. new Alexstrasza to use in wild after rotation?

    Grave rune copied eggs don't spawn minions. Why? Other copies like shadowy figure work. Any clues?

    "Our" thoughts? I hate it when people take their own opinion and project it onto the majority of the playerbase.

    A lot of things can beat this. A simple round where the opponent has divine poisonous stuff and goes first to kill your pirate might be gg depending on order. Not a bad board, but far from perfect.

    posted a message on is Battlegrounds killed ranked mode

    People kill variety and that's what kills all card games. What's the point of having thousands of cards full of flavor / different playstyles etc when people are so focused on winning instead of having fun? You end up with a handful of decks and staleness.

    posted a message on Rant on what needs to change in Hearthstone

    Btw, it is normal to be falling in legend rank as the month progresses. If you are an average legend player in the first week, you might be 2000/4000 players. By the end of the month you will be 5000/10000 which is the same percentile.
