    No, this must be a misprint. Shaman doesn't draw cards.

    posted a message on Proof that Tickatus is balanced

    There are a bunch of people who would like to play things like control warrior or other classes as control, that don't play it not because of all the aggro, but because autolosing to warlock is not a fun experience tho

    Yeah, they got tamsin, drain soul and jaraxxus, they would be so dead without it

    It's a rather common rule of hs, that whenever a spell deals multiple instances of damage, all the deaths are resolved once the spell finishes casting. It works the same way with magic missiles for exemple

    After playing some HP mage, I figured some annoying things with Reckless Apprentice

    Playing it will consume the "buff" from Tour Guide, considering you hero powered. However, you will not be able to profit from a Manafeeder Panthara 's battlecry.  It gotta be either one or the other, either it considers you hero powered, either it considers you didn't

     It looks correct. 

    Your next hero power costs (0)  - your next hero power did cost 0
    If you've used the heropower - You didn't use the heropower, it was activated in another way.

    Well no, my hero power did not "cost 0", since I never paid the 0 mana cost to use it. When I reckless apprentice when it costs 2, it does not remove me 2 mana

    I agree with most of what you said. I have always been annoyed with people, who can't be grateful for anything. As has already been pointed out, Blizzard is gradually becoming more open with their fans and actively respond to their criticism. In my opinion Year of the Dragon was the time when their approach started changing and as much I loved Hearthstone "back in the days", noone can't deny that for the first few years the game was treated by the developers as a side project to WoW. I remember that about 2 year's ago (Shudder meta) I myself was often critisising Blizzard, as they were clearly deserving of it. However, now with them actively improving, I can't stand people, who only whine, because something is not the way they want it to be.

    Yeah I can see where you're coming from blizzard were the complete opposite when the game was first released, I think it took them like 2 expansions to nerf undertaker (should have been nerfed long before it was). They've improved a lot since then - I just hope they don't go full 180 and start changing everything the community wants because if they start adhering to fan service the game takes a huge nose dive (just like how everything associated with fan service does). 

    One other thing I guess I didn't consider is that there has been a whole new generation of people since the game was released and people on the internet are just more self entitled and toxic in general these days. I blame it on social media and the counter culture movements which are forever ongoing. If you've been on twitter over the past couple of year you'll know what I mean. Most people see themselves as intellectually superior to everyone else, its petty. That wasn't the way I was raised and I'm damn proud of that fact. It's scary to think how warped the minds the youth of today can be because of the internet but that's an entirely different topic for an entirely different day!

     You surely don't see yourself as intellectually superior with posts like that

    I don't think Ben Brode is some kind of demigod, but it’s clear the game was developed with a lot of love and care, year's of balancing and tweaking went into getting the game to match Team 5’s vision. That has gone now, 3 expansions and 3 mini sets per year with an ever expanding list of balancing problems added each time, all the time ignoring the fundamentals of the original game. All the AMA's in the world won’t change that.

     Yeah, undertaker meta, patron meta, grand tournament being a useless expansion barring from 3 cards, etc.. 

    There was surely a lot of love and care and years of balancing and tweaking, sure

    On the topic of balance/design "whining", people figured the game becomes more enjoyable once blizzard takes the game like any other multiplayer game - where things that aren't right get balance patched fast enough to not ruin the game for too long. 

    And of course a lot of people see this as an opportunity to shit on others and try to feel intellectually superior by calling them whiners. Whining about people whining is still whining

    I liked that Watch Posts forced board-centric play, but now you can just Soul Shear or Drain Soul them, no problem. So... so much for that.

     I don't see how watch posts forced board-centric plays. The 3 cost one litterally punishes you for playing minion, and the 2-cost one punishes decks with a low curve (generally much more minion-centric) way more than control decks with only removal. Also, it doesn't make the board relevant when the posts are overstated and can't be reasonably traded into by minions. I am glad they are nerfed, and would have nerfed them by 1 attack aswell personally.

    That's the sad thing about druid this expansion. Whichever deck, be it token, celestial, celestial c'thun, taunt... is just either highroll or don't do anything

    Wouldbe pretty funny if they bumped them to 4 health, then everyone gets annoyed because they're too strong on 4 health (especially the paladin and shaman ones) and they get nerfed again.

    Sword of the fallen and refreshing spring are the only things on your list that need toning down imo. 

    The problem with players is they need to get over building the greediest decks possible. People get annoyed at pen flinger because it goes face a lot in the late game, but that’s 100% your own fault for building such a greedy, reactive control deck. 

    The same can be said about tick. Tick is absolutely useless against aggro/tempo decks, and only really punishes decks that “do nothing.” I love seeing the posts of people that complain about tick, they’ll link their priest deck, with like 26 reactive cards and only c’thun as their win con, and they wonder why their opponents have time to do all the things. 

    People need to build their decks more proactively. I personally love tick because he keeps these players in check. The players that build decks that are designed to make games go on for 30+ min. 

     Tickatus decks are the epitome of "do nothing" decks. 27 reactive cards and Tick, Y'shaark and Jaraxxus. So you're saying Tickatus counters the exact type of deck Tickatus is put in.

    Quote from Shadowrisen >>

    Sorry for the double post, but I think it relevant to this story that the third or fourth post on this thread is a blue post warning us against "victim blaming".

    I know full well the "victim" being referenced is the accuser, and I'm fully aware of the history of blame-shift in rape cases and other horror stories from the early days of prosecuting rape and sexual assault cases, but nevertheless, I find it sad that we have no idea who the victim is in this situation.

    While I don't have any problem avoiding victim blaming, I actually include both parties in that concept since it is a very real possibility that Zalae is the victim here.  It's disappointing that no such enforcement appears for that sort of victim blaming.

     Yeah, pretty funny you can crap on zalae all you want on a forum, but suggest the accuser is lying out of spite and the mods could go after you. Seems fair in a yet unresolved case

    Tickatus is so weak a card people ran , and run it in every version of control lock in there, and it's so weak they run Y'shaarj to get another copy of it. Definitely a card in need of a buff
