Finally made legend with taunt druid. Got the card back. I can now move on to something else.
TIME TO HIT SHAMAN!
Seriously sick of Elemental Shaman always curving out perfectly every single stinkin' game. Wailing into Custodian into Stormer/Hammer into Granite into Lilly-pad into Fire Elemental! Then toss in a couple burn spells and bang, game over by 7.
And then there's QUEST Shaman! Which honestly wouldn't be quite so terrible if Perpetual Flame didn't start out in my opponent's hand EVERY GAME alongside the quest. Seriously, I think they've coded that into the game. So any board presence I accumulate leading up to turn 4 gets wiped out by ONE one-mana card. And of course they overload for 4 or 5, but NOPE! Quest checkpoint kicks in and unlocks their crystals! EVERY. TIME.
Absolutely not possible. Everything is 100% random in the game. You probably just played the luckiest few elemental shamen that happened to draw perfectly on curve.
I hope the sarcasm is coming through ok.
If Blizzard was responsible for the World Series of Poker:
Oh my! Another Royal Flush on the river! That makes 476 hands in a row! What are the chances?
Tried making the #1 deck in the game according to Hearthstone Top Decks.
Turns out that if you aren't a "pro streamer" it is a 50% win rate deck. Just like every other one.
Remember when fatigue was a thing? Back when games went past 6 turns?
I can't remember the last time either I or my opponent didn't draw perfect cards on curve. Fuck you to whatever focus group told Blizzard that Hearthstone was too intimidating for new players causing them to make the game run on autopilot.
A once great game is now the equivalent of watching YouTube videos.
Remember when thought and strategy were still a part of Hearthstone? Good times.
The best part about knowing what we can't talk about here is that you can tank the games when it is clear that it isn't your turn. Once you hit platinum 5 just throw a few games until you start winning. Ride that wave to Diamond 10 then repeat.
I'm not saying that the outcomes of the games are scripted but two of my games are already contenders for best screenplay.
Honest question - does anyone really feel that this is a skill game?
Follow up question: of those that do - how many of you would bet real money playing online blackjack?
If you don't know after 3 turns if you are going to win the game you simply aren't paying attention.
I really need a "pro streamer" to do a tutorial on how to build a deck that wins in 5-6 turns. I have been playing for a long time but I can't seem to put together a deck that draws cards that consistently allows you to win in 5-6 turns yet after I win 4-5 games in a row it seems like I always run into these decks that are put together so perfectly that they win in 5-6 turns. They seem to have my number for about 4-5 games. It appears that they are just typical net decks but there has to be some tweak that I am missing that allows them to draw perfect cards on curve.
Actually I'm glad that I didn't preorder the expansion because it's the worst experience I ever had in a computer game. Probably I'm done.
At this point it really does seem like they are just phoning it in.
Are you lucky? No? Ok you don’t get easy wins. Do you pay bli$$ard real money? No? Ok no easy wins. You play cards then the rng reacts to your cards. Everything is a perfect discover. Everything is a perfect top deck. Everything is run by bli$$ard. You win when you are allowed to win. Plain and fucking simple period. Hearthstone is not a serious game. And should be blasted for pretending to be one. It’s just a fucking endless joke that never ends at this point. It’s all the same otk wombo combo bs that never stops. Where my opp can fuck themselves and the game will proceed to unfuck for them. Because god forbid the game before where if you were bad you were just that bad. Where now we have to give free wins to plebs because fuck putting any time or thought into anything you do. You people who put time into this game. Fuck you. You have a brain? Fuck you. You’ve been playing this game for years? Fuck you we don’t fucking care. We care about our god the dollar and whatever gets us that. Thanks for playing and again to our great customers fuck you
I've been warned that pointing out the obvious is not constructive. Fuck Blizzard, fuck players, wishing cancer and AIDS on people, these things are all useful and constructive comments. Any talk about game mechanics or Blizzard as a profit driven company is strictly forbidden.
It's sad that such an iconic expansion has evolved this way. The game is at it's peak of uninteractivity - not rewarding in any way, complete failure.
Literally losing games against players who can't even play their cards properly. Complete bullshit.
Based upon my current interaction with the moderators let me preface this by saying:
I AM NOT IMPLYING THAT THE GAME CHOOSES WINNERS TO ACHIEVE ITS STATED GOAL OF AN OVERALL 50% WIN RATE.
I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE SAME PROGRAMMING SHOWN IN ZTG CONTROLS EVERY ASPECT OF THE GAME.
I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE ALGORITHM IS RAMPED UP TO PROMOTE NEW EXPANSIONS IN THE HOPE OF GETTING NEW PLAYERS TO PLAY LONGER AND SPEND REAL MONEY.
These types of comments are not constructive.
If an opponent plays wrong card after wrong card and still wins it has nothing to do with any published goal. It is simply bad luck.
So fuck whatever players the current majority of people here hate for whatever reason! Let's hope they die in horrible accidents and get terminal diseases and other constructive threats and insults like that. These are the types of posts that help this community! If nothing else I am a team player.
Don't forget to subscribe to the pro streamers' various social media channels! Buy some more cards and make the flavor of the week net deck!
Pretty amazing how many games I play that end in 5-6 turns where I go "wow that was only possible if those cards were drawn on curve in that order.
Equally as amazing is after I win a few games in a row how many games in a row I will lose to literally the same deck drawing the same cards on curve. It is unbelievable that you'd see the odds defied in one game let alone so many in a row. Imagine walking up to a blackjack table in Vegas and every hand either you or the dealer got blackjack. I would think that they would shut that table down after a few shoes.
I've been warned that I can't talk about why this may be happening but I have a theory...
