    Match up against the same deck over and over again using your same deck over and over again.

    Change your deck.

    You then no longer match up against that same deck over and over again.

    It's been like this for a long time. I don't care if people want to dismiss it as anecdotal evidence. But then they do that and say in the same breath say that MMR is set up to achieve a 50% win rate. That in itself is manipulation AKA rigging.

    Why is it whenever this is brought up a bunch of wall defenders feel the need to tell you how wrong you are? I'm not going to waste my time with deck trackers. I have this thing called a memory. How about YOU use a deck tracker. Go ahead, play the same deck say 50 times. Tell me what what happens. Then switch your deck. Play another 50. Tell me what happens. And I won't ask for proof because I would believe you.

    You're right it is anecdotal and pseudoscientific.  Psychologically speaking those who claim to have bad luck with something usually don't actually have worse luck than anyone else.  You're saying you aren't tracking this, just going on feeling.  This isn't our experience so If you want to convince us by using a known fallacy as evidence its not going to work.  

     OK let's break it down for the simple around here.

    This isn't about losing. This isn't about bad luck. I never said I was losing. Can you read?

    AGAIN FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME -

    If you play the same deck long enough, you will notice a pattern of hitting a counter to that deck repeatedly. If you switch to another deck, you rarely see that counter deck.

    Got it now? This isn't difficult. It goes in line with Blizzard wanting a 50% winrate. Duh der Do YoU unDerStand NoW?

    Wild is broken post number 30.30030.00e300000d0 e^12. it is WILD IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE BROKEN Several Exclamation marks...

    Do not play Wild if you cannot take a beating or are too bad to rank up. L2p, git gud, have fun

     Ah, the obligatory "git gud" comment. Sorry, my nose isn't as far up Blizzard's ass as yours.

    What netdeck do you play?

    At the end of the day it doesn't really matter when Hearthstone is a dying piece of shit.

    You could continue pushing the "I'm so confident that I'm right that I don't need to check, and only stupid people don't believe what strangers tell them online" angle.

    And hope that nobody thinks too hard about why you'd go from "ok I'll get some actual numbers to settle the issue" to "I've decided that numbers don't matter" in roughly the amount of time it'd take you to start recording some data.

    And that nobody looks at Shed's post.  

    And then you could claim that anyone who says that's a load of childish nonsense is motivated by.... I dunno exactly. Being such diehard Blizzard fans that we can't bear to hear criticism directed towards our beloved video game developer, I guess. As evidenced by our compulsive and stupid need to employ critical thinking rather than just accepting what you claim. And could check! But refuse to. Because evidence is for dumb-dumbs and big brain types don't question strangers' hunches.

    For the record, I thought Diablo 2 was a fantastic game 20 years ago. I was disappointed by Diablo 3, I tried to get into WoW a few times with no success, and the rest of Blizzard's games are in genres I have little to no interest in. I hate the monetization of Hearthstone, hated the monetization of HotS, hated the always-online DRM requirement for D3 and so on.  In light of the recent lawsuits they're also not a company I want to support financially for the time being, which is sort of lucky for me because I've been pretty burned out on Hearthstone since around Ashes of Outland. 

    I could go on but I don't think any of this is relevant. I'm pretty far from being a Blizzard super fan, is what I'm getting at.

    Come on dude, we can all see that the emperor's wearing no clothes. It'd be absurd to continue arguing at this point. I certainly don't intend to. 

     

     Or you could just play the fucking game with a single deck for about 50 matches, then switch decks to counter decks that give you trouble and count the number of times you face that deck again. I mean it happens to everyone.

    posted a message on Hearthstone not fun in this state

    Hearthstone is not fun, it's simply an addiction. If Hearthstone was so fun, you wouldn't have a second edition of a salt thread that dominates the forum in post count. Playing GTA is fun. Playing your guitar is fun. Building your own PC is fun. Hearthstone is not.

    It's also fading. This forum is nowhere near as active as it used to be (I've been lurking for a while).

    Fine. I'll start using a deck tracker and report my findings. I'll need a couple of days.

     Do you have the data yet? I believe everyone is on the edge of their seats waiting.

     Nope I lied.

     I'm stunned. I was soooooo sure you were about to blow the cover off this whole conspiracy. Turns out, you're just a troll.

     Oh boy. You sure got me there. What do I do to counter such a retort from the extreme Blizzard fan?

    Uninstalled and never looking back. This game is pure fucking scum trash. Wild is beyond fixing at this point as the questlines have taken over. Nothing but brain dead kiddie shit.

    Matchmaking is rigged.

     Well, that settles it. You're totally turning me around on this one. I mean, who needs logic, reason, rationale or coherent thought? All you need is mindless assertions.

     Since the start of the expansion I played nothing but Questline Paladin. 5-10 games per day. I saw nothing but Questline Hunter with some other classes sprinkled in.

    I switch to another Paladin deck that is control based. I play the same amount of games for a week straight and not one Questline Hunter shows up. Not a single one. Instead, I now see a steady stream of this big Warlock deck.

    This has been the case for years. (The most common one is see nothing but Secret Mage, tech in some Eater of Secrets and never see Secret Mage again) It's nothing new. There are many users here who will tell you the same thing. If you don't think the matchmaking is rigged, you're just naive and lack any critical thinking.

    Are you running a deck tracker? If so, care to post match-up stats?

     How about I've been playing Hearthstone consistently since LoE? This is isn't hard. Anyone with half a brain can see exactly what I'm talking about.

    Tried that deck, its actually hard to pull it off due to animations. But OTK combos have been a thing in (wild) HS

     I know they have but usually they're late game. This was done midway through with zero chance to stop it.

    I just faced a Mage in Wild that was able to use infinite Ignites - one after the other - on the same turn to win. I was at 30 health too.

    What the fuck is this? In the six years or so that I have been playing this, I've never seen this level of broken trash in my life. Does Blizzard know what the hell they are doing anymore? They'll nerf cards that have been around forever that don't need it but leave others (like Apprentice) which causes decks like that to exist. No interaction. You just sit there and watch your opponent play the card repeatedly until your dead while they emote well played.

    Seriously this game is a joke at this point. I get Wild is supposed to be a little crazy but that's just over the top ridiculous.
