Don't watch the streams then
Can someone explain to me what's the point of playing hyper aggro decks in casual. Like you do know there are no challenges that say u have to win by turn 4 right. How about you hyper aggro players actually take the game mode "casual" a little more literally and actually play casually instead of playing like you you're one win away from Legend
So now the game will be decided by RNG of a disruption card. Amazing
Well you cant choose the cards because that would be busted. You need a bit of RNG to keep the cards somewhat balanced
I love that we’re getting more hand disruption cards. It’s frustrating that the only option to stop big plays is to play aggro and beat them by turn 4, or making the game a race to get your combo out before your opponent and breaking it down to just luck
I swear Tickatus has completely ruined Control Vs Control. In a match up where every card matters and fatigue plays a crucial part in winning or losing, the fact that there's a card that can burn your deck with zero counterplay (at least in Standard) is insane. My opponent was able to play 4 copies of Tickatus due to Felosophy and Y'Shaarj, the Defiler for a grand total of 20 burned cards. I understand ControlLock isnt meta and neither is Tickatus but the fact that one card can shutdown and entire archetype is ridiculous.
Also if you steal a card affected by Charge with Mind Control the stolen minion can instantly go face. Its extremely rare but i did it once with Puzzle Box
I dont know why they continue to do the theorycraft stream when many people have been vocal about their discontent with it. Why not just let everyone build their own decks on day one instead of getting an edge cause your favorite legend streamer already put together insane combos. We already have sites like hsreplay and this one that shape the meta within a week. Why aren’t we allowed to, at least, have one day of everyone being on the same playing field
Instead of appreciating the fact that they made the new adventure for free, you complain lol
Just because something is free doesn’t automatically make it good or that u have to like it. I can give u a free bag of dog poop im sure you’d complain about that
Early access. The damn early access to everything.
In WoW, they let people get early access to raids/patch content via the PTR.
In hearthstone, it’s the theoryocrafting streams/play testing.
This rant was sparked by Hearthpwn’s most recent entry of “United in storm wind crazy combos.”
All the YouTube videos already with people playing several decks from the new expansion.
Just let everyone enjoy the free fall together out the gate. Let people all play at the same time and enjoy theoryocrafting decks together.
I have been very vocal about it being 100% acceptable to netdeck the best decks, especially when climbing the rated ladder. But what’s beyond unfun is when people already have deck codes/ideas at the ready the SECOND the expansion drops.
Theoryocrafting based on information (card reveals) is acceptable, as it cannot be directly playtested. But Jesus, stop letting players, generally above average players, get a run at the cards before anyone else can.
A Bunch of streamers caused a backlash over something that's already being handled and possibly didn't involve anyone in this development studio, so rather than have pointless grandstanding and trolling and harassment we just canceled the stream.
As a loyal cusyomer I feel that their responce as whole was very poorly executed.
Blizzard or Activision is poorly paying employer and does not care for their customers as long as cash is pouring, so staff and players are not satisfied.
However the risen problem is not the players fault. We pay for a product and have no other relationship with the publisher outside of paying for service / receiving the service, anything else is outside of the those boundries and anyone that wants to involve is making it on personal level not as the whole community.
I refuse to get blamed for something I am not aware of and refuse to support the Blizzard staff as this issue has been 11 years old and nothing has been done so far.
Protesting in response to allegations comes off as annoying virtue signal. People should just wait for it to go through the court process. If they are proven guilty, then we can protest all we want and it would be fully justified.
I know you guys so called influencer want to spread this issue out, but this kind of action is like punishing us more than to Blizz
What do they have to gain from doing this? Holding up card reveals isn't helping anyone and it certainly isn't helping that you're making rash decisions before anything concrete has come out about the allegations.
Its a lawsuit not a conviction. People do not understand what justice means.
Don’t get me wrong… I read up on the lawsuit, if even HALF of what is alleged is true, it’s horrible.
I definitely stand with the women affected by anything that took place in the company.
My question is… what does not revealing a card on time accomplish?
If this was something like an official Blizzard live-stream event that would promote Blizzard and help them make money, I would totally understand refusing to participate… But not revealing a card on the scheduled time doesn’t hurt Blizzard at all, they don’t care lol. Hell, they could even post the card themselves if they wanted to.
Refusing to reveal the card on time hurts only the community of players who were waiting to see it.
Also, in the case of Alliestrasza, she is revealing the card 1 day later..... to me that just seems like she is pandering to the audience and trying to look like a SJW when the reality is, she's just another streamer who bows to her corporate masters.... same with Eddy and everyone else.
Don't believe me, look at what happened when Blitzchung got banned..... everybody was OUTRAGED!!!!11 ..... until they weren't.
Blizzard never even really apologized and they only reduced his ban from 1 year to 6 months and still everybody eventually forgot and moved on.
The guy had the balls to say "We won't see the remaining cards just yet" LIKE ITS 1 FREAKING DAY BEFORE RELEASE??? Are they really going to dump them tomorrow at 5 minutes before patch comes out LOL?
