    posted a message on Blizzard will nerf Warlock in the next patch, I guess.
    Quote from jazzfan27 >>

    It wouldn't surprise me given how they treated Priest this last round of nerfs.

    In standard Blizzard fashion, I say any Warlock nerf should be met with a substantial Paladin buff.

    posted a message on why have these obnoxiously oppressive cards not been nerfed yet?

    Rhino and Troublemaker are more than fine.  Are they powerful? yes, but they're beyond predictable (Rhino especially) and I feel can be played around.  Sometimes they beat you, sometimes you beat them.

    Inquisitor probably needs to be toned down a bit.  I think either a mana increase to 9, dropping the 'demon' tribe or making the rush/attack face an outcast stipulation would be more than a fair adjustment to the card while still keeping it powerful in the late game.

    I know the devs have hardcore stroked to warlock........the cringe deck running 20 removals while gaining life until they get to their gay legendaries to end the game...is a fxcking joke.  Unless you're playing mage/priest and get lucky, you'll just watch your board get wiped again and again.

    And people here actually cry about aggro??!!  If you are losing to aggro in this meta, then you are just bad at the game.

     The warlock deck that's bottom tier 4 and loses to anything that isn't priest? That warlock deck?

    Maybe you're just bad at the game...?

     I'm probably terrible at the game because every time I queue against a warlock they manage to have a perfect curve...every...single...game

    Good for these streamers to speak up.

    Now if they stop playing Hearthstone completely and stop profiting on it, they have my utmost respect.

    If they continue playing this game they are just low two-faced hypocrites...

     

     So if these streamers (who don't know you) essentially quit their jobs they will have your respect; however, if they don't then they are hypocrites.  I say you put your money where your mouth is and you cut off your major source of revenue first and if you can't bring yourself to doing that then YOU are the hypocrite my friend.

    Don't be such a small-minded child.

     But his major source of revenue is not Blizzard, dumbass, why would he cut it ?

    The audacity you need to call someone small-minded child with a mind such as yours, it's wonderful.

     How would you know that exactly?  The response was a direct reply to a comment about streamers in general; not one specific one so I have zero idea where you're coming from saying "his major source of revenue".  Let's then follow this up with the comment, "Now if *they* stop playing Hearthstone completely and stop profiting on it, they have my utmost respect"....'they' being the key word in that sentence, not 'he' or 'she'.

    So I'll keep my previous comment intact and I'll suggest you learn to read.  I promise it will give much more validity to your responses.

    I honestly see them being completed on par with or slightly less than C'Thun; but like C'Thun, you don't need to play all the cards to extract value throughout the game.

    Why is there so much fucking aggro 15/18 games were against fucking aggro that kills you by turn 5 and it doesnt matter what you do.

     Switch to a Control Warrior deck which destroys Shaman and Hunter.......guarantee you'll never face one again.

    However, instead of changing a format a lot of people are enjoying at the moment, maybe it would be better to add a new format: Time Machine. In that format, you choose an expansion Year (Mammoth, Dragon, etc.) for your deck, you can include only the cards that were available during that Year, and you'd be matched with players of the same Year. (The period before Standard existed would include everything up to League of Explorers, and I'm sure someone would come up with a good name for it.)

     

     I love the idea but in order to broaden the appeal I would amend it slightly to allow cards from the current rotation as well.

    I don't mind a 15-20 minute game but when it's all abt discover , tonnes of card generation, slow plays...it gets so tiring to just sit and watch them as opponents..priest is worst kind of control

     Well here is the problem.They didnt really go after the card generation. They chose to nerf Priests healing instead. I guess a dead priest cant discover more cards, still a terrible way to address the problem. Only thing the patch did was make Priest weaker against aggro and almost the same vs control. 

    If Raise Dead didn't exist then I don't think you see the nerf to Apotheosis.  It's not that the burst healing was a problem, it's that it could be pulled off multiple times within a game.

     You're the kind of person who ropes at Bronze 10 huh?

    I went from mostly PC to 98% mobile, I hit Diamond regularly (the only reason I dont hit Legend is because I prefer non constructed modes) and I almost never rope.

    There is no reason to rope. If you're roping constantly then you're taking the game way too seriously. There are only a few scenarios in which roping makes sense and they're all late game control scenarios. 

     I'm the kind of person who ropes from time to time anywhere, regardless if it's Bronze 10 or top 1k legend. I don't understand the concept of "take the game too seriously". I don't have time (and talent, most likely) to be at truly competitive level, but still, if I play, I do my best to win, not only in Hearthstone, but in any game.
    The most common scenario when I rope is turn one with an aggro deck and good hand, when I have several options and have to plan ahead what I should do in the early game, depending on what my opponent can do, how possibility of drawing card X in the next turn or two would change the situation for me etc and there is a shortened turn timer on top of that. I want perfect decisions if it's possible, not just first looking good decisions, even if after analysis I will stick to my initial plan most of the time. To clarify, I used to play 3 hours chess games when I was a kid and even that not felt like enough time for me. Do you think I'm unique in that? I don't think so.

    Quote from Tyk3 >>

    Behave will you. It's HS not Crusader Kings 3. Only reason to rope on 99% of occasions is purely BMing and/or mind games. While the timer is set as it is I've got no problem with people roping though, but even if they only cut the rope time in half people would have more than enough time to make the most complicated of plays. Only decks that would suffer would be the rare OTK deck that needs to play 50 cards and wait for animations.

    If you perceive rope as BM and/or mind games 99% of the time it doesn't mean they actually do it for that, it means you don't respect your opponents right to spend their time thinking more than you do. If you look closely, you will see that people roping way more often when they have multiple options and/or complicated problems to solve. HS is way more complicated than you think, you just don't want to dig deeper, which is fine, but do not assume a priori that everyone who trying to find perfect solution every turn do it just to get into your head, or they often will get into your head when they not even trying or know about it.

    I wrote a reply but then deleted it because I can't be bothered with your condescending bullshit. 

     this was still a reply though...

    Quote from Finalstan >>

     Vicious Syndicate noticed that there was not a high but significant proportion of players insta-conceding to Priests. This is because you are guaranteed to have 15-20 minute matches with them, which are not fun to the opponent, and players think they can use their time better queueing up to someone else. And insta-concede is probably not what Blizzard wants players to do.

     ^^^

    this is the point people continuously miss time and time again.  A class or card does NOT have to be Tier 0 in order to deserve adjusting.  Watching your opponent have consistent miracle turns with continuous spell generation just isn't fun to play against; period, end of story.   It also makes for an unhealthy competitive environment when your opponent's hand is literally composed entirely of generated cards which did not start in their deck so when you lose it feels like shit because you feel cheated and when you win it feels like shit because you didn't earn it.

    posted a message on Weird nerfs

    People really gotta stop looking at things in a vacuum and understand the Renew nerf was absolutely justified.  Renew isn't just a neutral 1 mana discover card; it's a card belonging to a class with an ability to continuously and consistently generate it multiple times over the course of a game - often times with a mana reduction which in turn, creates even more of a problem due to its ability to chain generation when Sethekk is involved.

    Having said that, it wouldn't be nearly as big of a problem if Blizz would just stop allowing spells to have their mana reduced to 0.

    How is Renew same cost as Runed Orb?

    Are you out of your minds, Blizzard? 2 dmg is awesome, 3 heal is worthless.

     Both discover spells and one has the ability to be regenerated a seemingly endless amount of times.
