    Fucking Rexxar, fucking ridiculous bullshit. Every turn - the perfect answer to whatever I've played. How the fuck has this card not been nerfed?

    Playing against a Resurrect Priest today. Out of desperation, because I'm ahead, he uses Doom Pact from his Lich King and has to burn the next 3 cards in his deck. He loses both Velen and Malygos.

    SO GOOD.

    So fucking sick of these OTK decks. Every turn - stall, stall, stall, blow through your deck, find the win condition. Doesn't matter what other decks do.  How is this fun?

    My Hearthstone days are like - start the game, pick a deck, start a match, see hunter with double secret into spellstone, rage quit. The same applies the days after. One match at a time, one concede, going to play other games that are not stupid.

     Same here. I’m still playing but have never felt more frustrated and demoralized with the game.

    As if dealing with constant Hunter bullshit wasn't enough, today I was reminded of another asshole deck I'd nearly fogotten about: Cubelock. Oh yes, let's have 3 Voidlords out by turn 7.  Hello Skull!

    Kobolds was the worst fucking expansion ever made, and nothing will make me happier than when that awful crap rotates out in April.

    I am so fucking angry with the state of the game. Hunter (spellstone; rexxar; zuljin) is simply unbeatable for many decks. I barely even want to try anymore. I can't recall ever feeling so hopeless when matched against a single class.

    Words cannot describe how much I hate this shit. It has ruined the game.

    Played for over 2 hours yesterday, ended up right back where I started on the ladder. Words cannot describe my rage at Zul'jin. The card is absolutely BAF and it sickens me that it exists.

    Malygos must go. The ridiculous 1 turn kills it allows are sickening.  I've had enough of it.

    So fucking sick of Zul'win and all the bullshit Hunter mechanics. It is just disgusting that Blizzard has allowed this class to have the fucking spellstone, Rexxar and Zul'jin all in the same rotation.

    I have a good win rate against hunters, but they have always these fucking 4 wolves at round 5 or 4 with coin... always!

    Last game round 5 4 wolves, round 6 4 wolves, round 7 hunter DK. And its normal, you don't even wonder about it anymore.

     

     Exactly.

    I am so fucking sick of this shit. The only option to feel you can beat a Hunter now is to play the popular Priest decks or Odd Paladin.

    But I don't like those decks - why am I forced to do so if I want to have a decent shot on the ladder?

    What pisses me off even more than the insane power Hunters have now is the lack of a decent anti-secret tech card.  The 5 mana card (Inspector?) is useless, and Even decks can't use it. Turn 5 is too late. We need a good anti-secret card for turns 2-4.

    Kibler streamed for 12 hours yesterday. I saw him at the beginning, and he was rank 1 (2 or 3 stars), using one of his home-brew decks.

    I tuned in later that night and was shocked he was still playing. Now he's fallen to rank 3 and is being crushed by Hunters in particular.

    If Kibler can't use a non-meta deck to win, what hope is there for the rest of us?

    Very sorry to hear about your holiday problems. I hope everyone is doing better now. That must have been very stressful.

    I am 40, married, two kids, full-time job. Still manage to play a fair number of games each month and can usually get to legend by the end of the season.

    I completely agree that there are far too many childish players who like to emote when they're winning, but probably also pull their hair out when they're losing. I typically squelch my opponents to avoid this nonsense. Yet once in a while someone adds me as a friend after a game and I accept it, and it turns out they are mature and reasonable and just want to talk game. (There are others who spout off horrific invective and I don't even respond, and simply "unfriend" them.)

    My personal view is that this is a very unhealthy meta. It's absurd one class represents almost a 1/3 of all decks being played on the ladder, while 5 classes are left with such poor numbers.

    Apologies if anyone already posted this...

    You can read the report here.

    Here are the highlights:

    • At ranks 4-1, Hunter compromises over 32% of the decks being played
    • If you add up the bottom 5 classes by popularity (Druid, Shaman, Mage, Warrior and Warlock) they are less popular - about 30.6%
    • Odd Paladin is seeing a resurgence as it is widely accepted to be the best "Hunter killer" deck on the ladder

    A few choice quotes about the classes suffering the most:

    Warrior:

    At higher levels of play, Odd-Taunt Warrior has been quickly kicked out of Tier 1, while the more vulnerable Odd Warrior has sunk all the way to Tier 3. The rise of Odd Rogue has not been enough to offset these negative trends, and Garrosh will now be hoping that the meta wakes up and transitions to a more favorable spot for him.

    Warlock:

    Warlock continues to fall as the previous rivalry it’s had with Druid now looks more like a convenient alliance. Druid has kept many hypothetical counters to Warlock out of the way, and now that they are gone, Gul’dan is bleeding games at an alarming pace. Even-Warlock has now dropped to Tier 3, while Zoo Warlock is sinking deeper into irrelevance. Only Cube Warlock is keeping its head above the water thanks to a couple of very strong matchups (Exodia Paladin, Spell Hunter).

    Rogue:

    Outside of Odd Rogue, things for Valeera may seem bleak, but the class is stronger than it appears. As Tempo Rogue is embracing Hooktusk builds, its win rate continues to rise. We think it’s a pretty good deck with Tier 2 potential, though it does need Spell Hunter to significantly decline before it can thrive (and it’s part of the reason why it performs much better at legend). 

    Mage:

    Things look genuinely grim for Jaina, and unlike Valeera, she doesn’t have a good excuse for it. Big-Spell Mage’s win rate is collapsing, and neither Odd Mage variants appear to be breaking out. Rather than mediocrity, the Mage class could be sinking into something worse.

    Shaman:

    Shaman is a one-deck class. That one deck is strong and has also improved in its performance over the past week thanks to a few favorable meta trends, but Even Shaman is all that’s left of the class. Don’t expect anything surprising to emerge over the next few months.

    Druid:

    Is there any hope for the Druid class? Miracle Druid’s numbers are still too low to confidently evaluate, but while individual success has been seen with the deck, we wouldn’t hold our breath about its chance to break into the meta. Its projected win rate is still deep in the Tier 4 territory. Other experiments with the class could have a tier of their own, and APM Priest is waiting to welcome them there.
