    i play quest rogue and lost to an elemental shaman simply because i couldnt complete my quest til turn 8, even then i almost won.

    so pretty much you just gotta hope they get shit draws.

    taunt warrior might be 1 of the best decks right now, but i dont know what edge you can have in a mirror match other than drawing more taunts sooner. i dont feel the mirror is skill intensive at all

    well i tried out what i thought would be a good version of the deck, but i guess fire fly tokens dont count as cards for the quest when you play multiple, shame.

    well apparently i dont know how the fuck the quest works. i guess the first minion you play for the game you have to play 4 times?

    It's a competitive game, top decks are going to rise to the top of the meta. That's sort of how every competitive game works.

     amazing that people actually think hearthstone is a competitive game !

    posted a message on Thoughts on the long-term future of Hearthstone

    im really starting to wonder why sites like this exist. 

    last article by ben brode had to describe common things before he talked about them. that kind of says the majority of players have no clue of anything and probably dont even know what "netdecking" is. 

    it should be clear by now that we are such a minority that really our opinions dont matter.

    I won't lie, Brode's vague comments on regular content (like mini-expansions of a handful of cards regularly) has me stoked we might be getting some. I don't think there needs to be huge metashifts, but I'm a firm believer something like a promo set every couple of months would be enough to take the edge off of solved metas while people tinkered with the new cards.

     when did brode mention minion expansions?

    Quote from Relashio24 >>

    ^its kinda hilarious how 4 pages of comments won't change that never hit legend opinion..(half the comments are saying skill is the most important factor those are people who have played r3-legend... then you have the other half who have never been past rank 5 probably never been past rank 15 say time is the most major factor) now back to the "original argument"

    Time is a factor to hitting legend, however its one of the most minuscule factors.

    Skill is the largest factor when hitting legend.

    I mean doesn't it sound a little crazy? I'd imagine there are quite a lot of players who would love to get to legend and get the cardback if investing time was the only requirement? people normally aren't that delusional and understand skill, experience, being up to date, and playing regularly are all more important factors then time...

    This thread was obviously made to make yourself feel better about not being able to hit legend and honestly deserves to be in the salt thread its pretty pathetic. ask any pro or any serious hearthstone player and your going to get the same answer over and over again.

     you realize you have to have time in the first place to have all the other things you listed right?

    posted a message on Biggest difference between Legend and rank 15

    It has to be time, i've been legend multiple times but i'm also no legend multiple time. It's definite not because "its too hard" or "im not good enough", it's simply because a lot of the time I think doing other things than sitting at a computer and grinding are much more appealing.

    posted a message on Is Hearthstone in a bad position?
    Quote from ArgentumEmperio >>

    God I hate the "Ctrl + R" refreshing the page...

    Long story short since I don't feel like going in depth again:

    1. Team 5 consists of 5 people, not the full worth of several hundreds of people who are part of making a AAA-title such as Overwatch. This was Blizzard's experiment to use the resources of Blizzard but only a small team of 5 to make a game. This comparison is dumb and makes no sense as a direct result.

    2. Its a cardgame. There's a huge difference from making a card cost 2 mana instead of 1 mana but there's not so much difference were you to change a gun from dealing 45 damage to 40, of course its noticeable when playing but the difference is not outlandishly ridiculus as it would be in any cardgame.

    3. Hearthstone IS a lot of folks first step into the world of cardgames so there is merit to the reason of 'it would be too confusing for new players'. Combine this with the fact that the team is so small priorities have to be made and for anyone who were paying any attention when the change came... where did the 'basic' decks go? That's right, those are our extra deck slots - they did in fact have to reprogram a significant amount to make us have access to it most likely. 2 years worth? Probably not. For 5 people who have to playtest, make prototypes, create cards for roughly 2 expansions and 1 adventure a year, PvE encounters, tavern brawls, read (yes, the devs do read even tho' they don't have the same resources to respond) feedback... something as minor but still significant time investment as changing how the basic decks essentially work... yah'.

    4. Unless you wanted to remove RNG from the game and add a lot more rules and mechanics such as instant-speed effects... yah', RNG is gonna be around in Hearthstone. For good reasons. As this is, going back to the balancing 'issue', the only way to make these small numbers appear. You could very easily play around Yogg-Saron, Hope's End and for anyone who wishes to debate me on this point I will refer you to Brian Kibler - he's played around it, I have played around it, good players can play around it - bad players claim its impossible, intelligent people say that its better now that Blizzard have cemented its position as a Johnny card even tho' it was fine before. RNG will exist in all cardgames, Hearthstone more so.

    5. Purify. Ben Brode talked about Purify and just a few days earlier they had spoken that they had for some time been looking at balancing arena by improving the chance of drawing some cards removing others and so on and so on. How did folks react? Like they hadn't watched the video and claiming how Blizzard (not Team 5, which is a HUGE difference about what message you are sending) had failed in creating a card to such a degree that they had to remove it from the arena, even tho' they had planned to not have it in it in the first place so folks could play around with new cards that were primarily fun. Team 5 DO communicate... but folks are too dumb/shortsighted/interested-in-memes-that-their-brains-have-rotten-and-cannot-think-anymore that folks ignore that. Could they do a better job? Yes, but everyone could do a better job at something... how about folks start by actually doing a better job listening to the things they say in the first place?

     

    All in all...

    Hearthstone is in a good position. And changing out the development team for it would be... dumb, pointless, moronic, idiotic and an insane proposition as it wouldn't do anything good for the game. Adding to it sure, as it only started with 5 people as an experiment and now with its success it could warrent more people ... but not 'different' people.

     im PRETTY SURE they planned for purify to be in arena.

    posted a message on Why do people play control?

    i play control because it leads to more interesting game states and generally involves cards that are much more interesting. FOR INSTANCE, all the decisions you get form a kazakus and change the game pretty significantly. discovering cards changes the game significantly a lot of the time.

    basically i like playing control because it doesnt just have a gameplan such as "k im gonna kill you turn 5" and includes cards that change the way the game gets played.

    to all the people that mention brain power and such, you're playing the wrong game, you should not be here to show your intellectual prowess.... thats just silly.

    Yes,they advertise and this rng and smorc fuckfest as an esport.There are better card games out there and soon this will show.I personally log in just for the quests now and then i play faeria and shadowverse.Better games overall.Not to mention the elderscrolls card game.

     they didnt plan for hearthstone to be an esport. stupid ass customers wanted it and so blizzard obliged. its not their fault they didnt make their game with having an actual competitive game in mind. it was supposed to be a fun phone game. stop expecting more than that.
