    RNG fest... my game I got a bunch of disposable murlocs while my opponent got 3 Old Murk Eye by turn 5. And on my win I RNG'd my way to frustrate EVERY move of my opponent. No challenge here- just chaos

    Its all F*£$ing card draw... just keep giving my opponent the perfect opening hands and keep giving me the worst... thats all this is... OH and stop matching me up against Zoo and other agro decks... or at least quit giving them Keleseth on 2... no kidding 5 Zoo decks in a row that played Keleseth on 2...

    OK really feeling a rigged matchup system now... was playing deathrattle hunter and saw 7 straight zoolock decks... switched to Mecath'un Priest and now 7 straight odd paladins... rigged matchups

    Well if your a standard player the simple answer is Hagatha the Witch. Its a more flexible card (it fits other shaman decks) and it'll be around ALOT longer in standard. In wild... I have no idea

    posted a message on Hey Blizzard, about Casual Mode...

    So in my experience, casual is the place where I try stuff out before I put it on ladder, get my daily quest wins in with weak class decks or attempt to have fun with meme decks. So I kinda want to leave the experience the same. That doesn't mean I wouldn't be interested in trying some different play styles in other platforms, like a dual class table.  

    But what I would LOVE to add to casual is, more than a card ban, a class ban. Nothing chaps my hide more than wanting to try out a meme deck or a weird combo deck and constantly getting matched with a Zoolock deck. Or if I'm experimenting with a new agro deck, I would love to test it on decks other than Odd Warrior. I would love the option, from match to match, to ban a class so that I could avoid certain potential matchups.

    So to review

    - drastically changing casual

    + adding different playstyle 'tables'

    + adding a 'ban a class' option in casual

    posted a message on Yes, I truly enjoy the meta right now

    Kaladin, still

    1) You mentioned folks copying a deck. Who mentioned net decking? That's just pivoting. Net decking has always been an issue, this meta is no worse than any other. But also, "In previous metas, you would know in the first turn or two what any deck you were up against was, and could plan turns accordingly.  That's far less true now. " This is a bad thing? This is one of the main reason why this meta is really good. You and I have massively different ideas on what connotes a good meta... you're really making my point for me. Seeing this as a negative assumes/ encourages everyone to net deck... a diverse meta means you can't reliably predict who you will play so you have to build a balanced deck that has variable and viable win conditions and tech options. IOW I'm not being forced to play the current OP deck or its counter- if I want to be competitive.  

    2) "You made two points that are unrelated." I beg to differ, diversity in matchup and game balance are related. Typically aggro beats combo, combo beats control and control beats aggro; right now there is a wide and effective sampling of all archetypes, which means all deck archetypes are, by and large, held 'in check' by another deck. It appears that some 'salty' folks are upset over this balance and their inability to reliably predict their opponent's deck- this is the 'dice roll matchup' effect- which I think is great for the game. And yes while the words diverse and balanced don't objectively mean the same thing, I was hoping you could draw conclusions and not nitpick over technicalities. Though, if you don't think a balanced meta is a good meta then I have to question why you enjoy playing? If it's just to win, then I can't relate. I want to win, but I want a competitive challenge and the more balanced the meta is the more challenging the competition becomes.

    3) Sorry "casual" constructed and ladder and they are different, currently. Casual constructed is full of combo, OTK and off meta decks while, I'm finding alot of agro (as usual) and control decks on ladder this season. Again hoping you could draw the conclusions and not nitpick over technicalities. Also, I love queuing up against aggro w/Odd Warrior- I find it has so much cheap removal and tanking potential that it can almost always outlast the agro swarms. My only issue with the deck is that it doesn't really have a true win condition... which is why I sub one in for those combo or other control matches. And I find DK Hunter, while strong, to be unpredictable. 50% of the time a good value or control deck can outlast Rexxar. 

    4) "violate forum rules," "look to get me banned"- wow rhetoric is a bit OTT don't you think?  But calling out someone (calling their post unproductive) for calling out folks (calling other's posts salty and noob-ish) is a bit pretentious and hypocritical (i.e. self-righteous). Just saying... see ya out there.

    posted a message on Yes, I truly enjoy the meta right now

    Gotta call BS on you Kaladin. For a few things...

    1) How is a meta that has, a least, a dozen competitive decks less 'skill-based' than a meta that has one dominate agro deck? You can, today, competitively deck build and play every class, some with multiple decks. A 2 toned meta (OP and counter OP) ALWAYS eliminates, at least, 2 classes from viability. This meta actually encourages learning multiple play styles and playing the same classes in different ways. Diverse does equal good.

    2)Also, that 'dice roll' matchup argument is SUPER weak. Play games out, I've beaten dozens of 'bad matchups' b/c I played the game out; card draw, actual play, deck building, and patience- that wins in this meta not auto win or SMORC decks. It just comes off as folks who want to play auto win decks- there's solitaire on your computer for that. Diverse does equal balanced.

    3) Oh, and control is not dead... In constructed you see just as many, if not more, Odd Rouge, Odd Paladin, and Tempo Mage decks as you do Combo Druid, DK Hunter or ?Mecha'thun? (seriously?) decks and some of those "OTK combo" decks can be messed with enough to undo their win condition. And ladder... please... Zoo, Odd Rogue and Odd Paly still see a bulk of the play... control is still very much alive.

    4) Ultimately its all a bit subjective, you claim diverse does not equal good nor balanced... but to me it does. You might have liked the Pirate Warrior meta, but I hate 2 toned metas; I prefer a wide meta so that when I que up and see my next opponent I don't already know how the game will have to play out for me to win or lose. You might like predictable games, but I love the challenge of beating a deck that I'm not equipped to beat or getting those off meta decks that own me b/c they specifically tech against whatever deck I'm running, or when someone surprises with a new take on a current meta deck. Diverse does equal good and fun... a least for some of us... like the OP. 

    So, unproductive!? This thread started off positive... but, ya, the 'salty noobs' or 'salty ___' gotta crap all over someone who is actually having fun and willing to say so. And I'm willing to agree and call BS on folks who cry 'stale' or 'too dice rolly.' If you've got a different take, fine say it, but If you're just gonna be self-righteous, keep that crap to yourself... be better than that.

    Stale!? Is this thread full of salty noobs? Does anybody remember the cancer meta that was Pirate Warrior? It was either that or counter that. The meta is full of great decks. IDK, but it sounds like aggro players are tired of playing Odd Rouge and Odd Paladin and tired of facing Odd Warrior.  Or folks are mad that there isn’t an auto win deck and instead you have to actually build a balanced deck.

    Honestly if you are a control or combo player... the meta has never been so diverse. Most of the time it takes a few turns to figure out what deck you’re playing. Sure I like expacs to have super OP cards but I really like that the last two have been power check expacs. It’s brave on Blizzard’s part, and now the game has somewhere to go while also have a balanced base.
