    posted a message on Year of Dragon?

    A couple of weeks later, I'd like to applaud the topic starter. Turns out, that observation was spot-on and really a stroke of genius.

    TESO is just a niche game

     Elder Scrolls are niche? Sure, about as niche as Warcraft.

    Maybe you are getting bots as opponents because there are no real people in the queue at that time?

    posted a message on New ''solo'' adventures are kinda like 6 expansions a year

    Being worth (or not) its gold value is more or less irrelevant to Blizz's bottom line. But paying customers will need to pay $60 more each year. Previously you were able to buy at least 3 new AAA games or a whole lot of indie stuff on Steam for the same investment as one Hearthstone year. Now that becomes at least 4 new AAA titles. Whales obviously don't care but middle-class customers could give up at this point. I'm not sure increasing the cost of the game further will actually lead to increased profits.

    posted a message on Hearthstone Specialist - The New Competitive Format for 2019

    Oh, they absolutely did, as the latest info on the subject is as follows:

    For almost all of Magic's history, best-of-three play with sideboarding has been the go-to solution for competitive play, and it's survived the test of time due to its strategic depth and competitive balance. With the upcoming Mythic Invitational, we're working on an alternative format that has multiple games per round but doesn't include sideboarding. As with any other time we've bucked tradition, we're heading down this path for what we believe are compelling reasons.

    So, Magic basically axed Bo3 and Sideboards, while Hearthstone decided to use Bo3 and Sideboards... Such a funny moment when two major competitors believed their rival had a better competitive format and copied each other almost at the same time.

    posted a message on Year of Dragon?

    I doubt that it will be the Year of the Dragon if only because TESO currently (and for the rest of 2019) has the Season of the Dragon and copying season name from a competitor would be bad PR.

    And it's much easier to win in the Wild since the quality of Wild players is significantly below the quality of Standard players.

    What? How do you know that, mr. TardisGreen?

     Common sense? Why would good players play in wild where there's no money to be made?

     What? How much money are you making in standard?.. We're not talking about proscene that is 0.0001% of the playerbase.

    posted a message on Cards that feel "out of Place"

    I agree with Trimutius, handbuffs feel super awkward as a Warlock theme. They should've sticked with buffing their Demons on the board. Even minion buffs in general should be more of a Priest or a Paladin thing.

    Speaking of other cards that dilute class identities, Gilded Gargoyle should've been a Rogue card. I don't think there is any logic behind giving it to Priest. And there are many more misplaced cards, especially in recent sets.

    posted a message on Core Set Please !!!

    I have a feeling that most people support the 'core set' idea only because they think that it somehow means that Blizz would give away a lot of cards for free. Cards that other people paid for. That's not going to happen, get over it and enjoy the game for what it is. Or move on.

    posted a message on Card Nerf - Lesser Emerald Spellstone

    At 6 mana most classes will be able to deal with it, even if it's coined out. Coin+Spellstone was a blow-out play on turn 4 that few besides Priest and Warlock were able to counter. Now splashing secrets into an aggro deck just for the Spellstone won't be worth it.

    posted a message on Card Nerf - Hunter's Mark

    Even @ 2 mana it's still not bad. Hunter has a lot of options to deal 1 damage, any deck that actually wanted to play this card will still do so.

    posted a message on Card Nerf - Equality

    Unpopular opinion here but I still think that even @ 4 mana Equality is still playable in slow paladins. Pyro will probably be mandatory though as Consecration alone will be too slow to combo with it.

    Equality will still be very good against Midrange decks, you will just need something else to combat Aggro.

    posted a message on Card Nerf - Flametongue Totem

    Looks like a nerf that's mostly targeted at Wild but honestly I don't think it will make Even Shaman that much less opressive in Wild. At some point they will have to address at least Thing from Below as well. Considering Barnes is still intact, I suspect there will be another round of balance changes for Wild some time after the next rotation.

    posted a message on Card Nerf - Cold Blood

    4 damage for 2 mana is still not bad. Minions with Lifesteal and Windfury are still a reason to run Cold Blood over Eviscerate. Or you can always run both, if your deck is built for it.

    posted a message on Zilliax in most decks, why??
    Quote from Jaybaseball1 >>

    He is incredibly versitile and useful in almost every situation. Great against in any deck, neutral so he can be used in every non-odd deck. Suprised it's only 27.5 tbh

     *can be used in every non-even deck...
