Battletag: Coldny#2641 Region: EU Trade Only?: Yes you go first, il show quest.
This is such a shame. I registered a month ago to share some of my decks and to share good experiences with other hearthstone fellas because we are all friendly and talkative (Not toxic like LoL community). In either way all I can say is that I had a really good time here and thank you Hearthpwn.
Now that I'm playing this brawl I reminded myself of good old times when I used to play full legendary deck games against my friends back in the day. I'm creating this thread with a purpose of reliving that experience as well as finding new friends, potentionally the ones who like the same things in Hearthstone as I do. I have always enjoyed those games. There is a small chance one loses to the insane curve of the opposition but those games usually tend to go to the later stages of the game and more often than not produce really magical moments. So if you are willing to play some of this feel free to add me (Coldny#2641 EU) and also put your battletag as a reply to this post so other people can add you to for that matter :)
It's too weak. In order to make value out of this card you would need to destroy 8+ mana minion like Boom Reaver or Mechathun and even then it just serves the same purpose as BGH. If you destroy Zilliax it's as if you played Stormpike Commando. Not even good for secondary decks in tournaments, let alone for ladder.
Just HOF Leeroy Jenkins. Easy 16 damage for 8 mana. Leeroy for 6, Waggle with second attack for 4, Leeroy again for 6. Charge is not fun. Leeroy has burst from spells and weapons, it shouldn't have any charge minions.
You missed the whole point of this article. Of course that combo happens quite often when they play Prep-Raiding Party early on followed up with the weapon on turn 4 and 6/6 worth of stats (with taunt) so by the time you are spending your mana, resources and time to deal with them (alongside EVIL Miscreant and a couple of Lackeys) you find yourself already low enough to be bursted down from 15 HP or less. If Raiding Party was 4 mana those 16 damage turns would be significantly rarer.
You are missing the KEY aspect to the argument: Preperation is the iconic card for Rogue, literally all rogue spells have been designed around it. To change Prep would be to fundamentally change a class more than any other nerf in the history of the game.
At least the OP is looking at the data and reality, Raiding Party is oppressively strong, and if there is to be nerfs it is the most likely, and most appropriate nerf. Wagglepick IMO could see a nerf but I don't go around making threads about it.
tl;dr Prep is key to Rogue identity, Raiding Party is not. OP made a concise thread about a prevalent issue in the game, so props to you. Anyone who thinks what OP was saying belongs in the salt thread is simply an argumentative, ignorant troll. Don't have to call anyone out, you know exactly who you are, you're the one never offering a valuable opinion that is your own.
I actually agree with literally everything you have said. Thanks for backing me up. Seemingly some haters around here are accusing me for just making another salt thread when as a matter of fact I just wanted to point out the real problem in rogues gameplan if there is any.
By the way, speaking of those iconic cards, I wasn't playing when Nourish and Wild Growth were nerfed to ground (in December) but as of now I totally disagree with that move, because mana ramp is what druid has been known ever since ... You just don't take away cards that define class identity. Same goes for Preparation. It's been rogues thing to cheat out mana for tempo swings and Prep is no exception. As if Sprint and Vanish werent super slow and bad enough on their own now people want the only card that makes them work removed...
Just for the record, I didn't say that rogue isn't the best. I just think that people who complain about rogue are exaggerating a little bit too much. The word broken should only be used if there is something really destructive for the game to the point people quit playing because of it and rogue right now doesn't fall into that category. At least for me.
