    posted a message on 29.2.1 Patch Notes - Small Adjustment to Quest Requirements - Armor Changes for Battlegrounds & Bug Fixes

    If you want to go the extra mile, there's this: reportfraud.ftc.gov

    By changing the terms of reward acquisition (reducing the value of the product for casual players) after the Tavern Pass was purchased, Blizzard has committed fraud.

    Better be careful, Blizzard. The way you're managing the game, bots will soon be the only accounts you have left.

    Stop cheating, and you won't have to worry about it.

    I have to agree. I normally defend good business decisions, but this is not one. They are shooting themselves in the foot, trying to coerce people to play more games.

    It makes me think the numbers really are declining fast if they have to go to such lengths to keep queues active. I guess they no longer have faith in their own ability to draw people in with actual entertaining gameplay. Keep this up, Blizzard, and you'll have nothing left but Battlegrounds.

    posted a message on How do you play Rainbow DK?

    Rainbow DK is not an aggro deck. I can't imagine where you got the idea to play it that way.

    You should be creating as many minions as possible to generate as many corpses as possible for all your corpse spenders and your eventual CNE, which is your win condition. Deal chip damage when it's convenient, but always prioritize board state over face damage.

    Sickly Grimewalker is your best tool for clearing big boards -- NEVER play it for tempo, and try not to waste it on small stuff. You want to combo it with Crop Rotation whenever possible.

    Finally, if you are using Might of Menthil, you need to update your deck. The most effective versions of Rainbow DK do not use that card. Are you missing a legendary that you subbed it for? That would be a problem because every legendary is extremely important.

    posted a message on Thought they did a ban wave, right?

    If Blizzard were caught cheating -- and of the many, many thousands of people playing and logging their games, there is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE of such -- the authorities would burn their headquarters to the ground. I cannot even begin to stress to you what a HUGE, MASSIVE, VERY BAD THING that would be for Blizzard (and now Microsoft).

    They have zero incentive to make you lose games, and a whole lot of incentive to play by the rules.

    I'm sure you'll come back with more of your anecdotal bullshit, but until I see actual logs of actual games and the statistical analysis backing up these claims of cheating, I'm going to continue to assume you have no fucking clue what you're talking about.

    Quote from MintMurderMedia >>

    He is correct. If you see a color/gem followed by an animal its def a HS bot. 

     Pretty sure those are the ones that got banned. You can tell because the game allows you to add them as a friend. You cannot add Blizzard bots as friends.

    If you're seeing them after the ban wave, it's because they are newly created (third-party) bots.

    posted a message on can wild packs contain standard cards?

    To answer the question, yes. Standard cards are playable in Wild, so they may appear in Wild packs.

    posted a message on Thoughts on "Festival of Legends"

    I feel the exact opposite from OP. I think the theme is too silly (even for Hearthstone), the humor is 100% pop culture references (i.e., the lowest of low-hanging fruit), and the cards themselves are going to be extremely annoying. I know a lot of people enjoy this kind of thing, and more power to them, but it's not for me in any way.

    posted a message on Does anybody buy the pre order bundles?

    If you have been playing for a while, you do not need to buy both bundles. You can just get the bigger one. If you have been saving your Standard packs from Brawls (open them first!), you'll have plenty of gold and dust to complete the entire set.

    Full disclosure: I'm not buying this set because the theme does not interest me at all, the cards seem unpleasant, and too many of last year's cards were unpleasant. But if you're into it, one bundle will do the trick.
