    "Hi guys,

    I'm a former dev and I see a lot of people are still raging on this forum about our former hit game, and apparently a lot of people didn't get the memo: We've quit supporting this game a while ago, since a large portion of the playerbase has already left and the game is costing us more money (maintaining servers etc.) than it's making us, so we've decided to no longer support it. Just wanted to inform all of you guys that it's best to move on and find another game to play, oh and we decided to discourage any remaining players that are still playing our game by increasing the RNG against them, so they'll quit and our server costs go down. I hope to have properly informed the users of this forum about the current situation, and want to thank each and every one of you for playing and supporting our game all this time, and hope that you'll find another game to play and enjoy, but it's time to wrap it up and move on to greener pastures! ;)

    Yours sincerely,

    Former dev"

    P.S. This post was sarcastic and I'm not a former dev, nor do I pretend to be, but considering the current state of the game it really feels like they're alienating a lot of "older" players, players who've been here and played and supported this game for a long time and who still hold some hope, that some day the devs could magically "repair" this game and make it alright again, and it seems that the "newer" players get favourable RNG and get rewarded for bad plays and/or get "get out of jail-cards" more when that specific game's outcome should already have been decided by that point (especially when your opponent topdecks a card like Zephrys the Great midway in the game, with an outcome of 3/100 to get a card that could save his ass or he would lose the game otherwise, which consists in a total chance of (1/20)*(3/100) = 0.15%, and that wouldn't be a problem if it would only occur in every 15 out of 10000 games, but it doesn't and it literally happens every other game. People have been complaining about this for so long now, and the RNG aspect of the game has only gotten worse over time, so it really seems that the devs favour newer players over their current or "old" player base. Of course there's nothing wrong with preferring certain players over others because it's a corporate world after all, but it would be nice to just hear them say "Yes, we've shafted our old players over for newer ones, because the old players make us little to no money compared to our newer ones", then we could all get along with our lives and leave this game behind us for the P2W-players. But the fact of the matter is, they won't because they don't want to be seen as greedy and hurt their reputation, and the player base feels like it's stuck in a vicious circle: You'll lose a lot of games in a row and will begin to doubt your own capabilities and sanity, until you lay down the game for a while, and when you'll pick it back up you'll suddenly start winning some games again. This happens mostly right before the release of a new set of cards, because the game wants you to feel good, to the point that you're contemplating on buying some new cards with real money, and once you've done this your RNG suddenly evaporates like snow in the sunshine because the game has accomplished its goal of getting people to invest money in it. For the "older" players, we've seen this all before and we know too well that the altered RNG is too much of a coincidence to be legit. Loss-streaks of 40 losses in a row are not even uncommon at this point (which should actually be really, really, really rare in a type of game like this). I don't know why HS is so addictive, maybe it's because of the RNG that creates a gambler's kind of dopamine, but I know that a life without HS is much better than with HS in it, especially with the state the game is currently in. So I bid thee farewell, my fellow players, I'm uninstalling the game and I won't be returning anytime soon. It's a shame it had to end like this, but every story has its ending, and this is the ending of my HS story. Goodbye everyone, I'll miss raging on this game in this sub and on this website, but I think it's the better for every player to quit this game now, than to waste any more time on it because it's a lost cause.

    This game is such a fucking joke, why do you guys still play it? I know the state of video-games is pretty bad right now, but jesus fucking christ, why would you waste your precious time on this scripted ass joke of a game? The RNG is so fucking ridiculous, you couldn't make the shit up that you see on a regular basis on this game, fuck this game and fuck the developers.

    In ALL of my last 7 games I played with my  Barnes + Y'Shaarj Hunter-deck, I drew my Y'shaarj before turn 4. Great way to nerf Barnes Blizzard!

    Edit: Drew Y'Shaarj in 9 out of my 10 last games before turn 4! FeelsGoodMan Clap

    Edit 2: Turn 5, My opponent has 5 mana and plays Hecklebot, it summons my Y'Shaarj and he plays a Naturalize on it. First 13 cards, no Spellstones, no Deathstalker. FeelsAmazingMan Clap

    I have never seen such a scripted game as this scripted garbage. People please, send Blizzard a message and stop playing this scripted shit, because you're only wasting your time hoping they'll change and/or improve it otherwise.

    The amount of times I get beaten by an opponent who netdecks his only out is fucking disgusting, especially when they've already played all the cards in their hand, and it's blatantly obvious that the script is favouring netdeckers. Fuck this game and fuck the developers for making it like this.

    E.g. My opponent plays Luna's Pocket Galaxy on turn 5, then he topdecks and plays Kalecgos on turn 6, plays a Firelands Portal from his hand + a Molten Reflection he discovered from Kalecgos on his Kalecgos. This was probably the best possible outcome he could get from playing Luna's Pocket Galaxy on turn 5, and the chance of drawing Kalecgos the next turn was 1 in 22, let alone the chance he discovered a Molten Reflection from Kalecgos, which is around a 3 in 70 chance, and because of the effect from Kalecgos (my opponent being able to play a spell for 0 mana next turn) I had to kill both. The odds of this happening is (1/22) * (3/70) = less than 0,2% chance, or you could say this happens every 2 times in 1000 games (or once in every 500 games), statistically. My problem however, is that in real life, this doesn't happen "just" every 500 games, but I feel the figure is probably closer to once in every 10 to 20 games, that something crazy happens that the chance of happening is very small of. Although no one outside of the dev team might know for sure, it really feels like they've tweaked the game so, that a lot of crazy things happen, because they thought that people would prefer that, but I honestly think that it annoys people more than anything. Whenever you win, it mostly feels like you didn't do anything special and you probably had a god-like draw or your opponent had the worst possible draw for his deck, so it doesn't feel too special whenever you manage to beat your opponent. But yeah, the game is dying anyway, so we might as well abandon the ship before it sinks.

    I think the devs and Blizzard/Activision honestly don't give a shit anymore. They know the veterans have been playing the game for long enough and they don't make them enough money compared to new players, because by now the veterans already have a considerate collection of cards and have no incentive to spend any more money on this game.

    For everyone out there that is sick and tired of this stupid ass game, I have an easy solution for you: JUST STOP PLAYING! It's that easy. Stop wasting your valuable time on this BS game. Yeah I know, it used to be a fun game way back in the day, but they literally ruined the game and they obviously don't care anymore. So please, for the love of God, stop holding on to your nostalgic feelings for this game, and do yourself and everyone else a favour, and JUST STOP PLAYING IT! I know it's hard, and I had to quit certain habits myself during my lifetime which wasn't easy, but your life will get so much better for it, just trust me. Toss away this trash game, and never look back, and it will probably be one of the best decisions in your life.

    How is it possible that Priests (in Wild) always have Barnes in their hand on turn 4 (or turn 3 when they have the coin)?!

    The RNG in this game is literally off the charts, it's so blatantly obvious that it's scripted. Why do we keep playing it?

    This game is such an utter fucking joke, I just played a game against a Spell Hunter with my Even Warlock deck, and I would've won the game easily on fatigue, were it not that my opponent LITERALLY got 10 CONSECUTIVE lifesteal + rush/charge minions from his Deathstalker Rexxar hero power. WHAT ARE THE ODDS?! This is truly insane, and I've never played a game with this bad RNG EVER BEFORE. Truly makes me want to quit this game and never look back. Zul'jin is way overpowered too btw. How did no one at Team 5 think to themselves: Oh, this card might be a little OP? It literally trumps every other DK/hero card in my opinion, and you get rewarded regardless if you played bad or not. I nearly play flawless and I often see my Hunter opponents make mistakes, but when they just slam Zul'jin on the board (after playing some random spells turns 1-9) they win the game 99% of the time. There is not a single other DK/hero card that has that same game shifting potential, and it's properly embarrassing that it got the go ahead for this expansion. I feel gross and disgusted by this game, and don't recognize the fun (but sometimes frustrating) game it used to be anymore. Sure, it wasn't ever perfect, but it used to be way more fun and rewarding if you played well, but now you just get screwed over by literally OP cards and there's virtually nothing to counter them with (Prince Keleseth, Zul'jin, Shudderwock (although hard to pull off)), and there's so much combo's/OTK's nowadays that are so hard to play around (Maly Druid, OTK/DK Paladin, Freeze Mage etc.), can you honestly say you still enjoy this game? For me personally, I can not. RNG is horrible too most of the time, and even if you win a game, you feel like you were pretty lucky most of the time, it barely ever feels like you won because you "outskilled" your opponent. Reading this, I might actually just quit altogether. Sure there might not be that much fun games to play at the moment, but nearly every other game out there is more rewarding of your time/investment/energy and money than this pile of shit.
