    The game needs a massive reboot. They had a chance last year with the new core set for each class but they blew it. Too many broken idiot cards remain and the sets are simply too powerful.

    There is so much potential here, but it's just wasted. I hope the entire Team 5 is fired and new blood is brought in.

    I cannot put into words how much I hate Garrote Rogue. It just ruins the game. They have given Rogue everything imaginable:

    • Insane card draw
    • The ability to OTK your opponent by turn 6(!) or turn 7 or 8
    • Removal cards that allow you remove both multiple minions or large minions, all through the (ab)use of Shadowstep 
    • Randomly generated mage cards - something Rogue should never had had access to in the first place (Scholomance's dual class cards were either broken or useless)
    • Mana discount that no other class can replicate (Octobot)
    • Spell damage cards that are tradeable so if you draw them early, no downside, just trade 'em away and find it when you need it

    The only thing worse than facing this asshole deck is hearing from the "pros" who play it brag that it's a "high-skill" deck.  As if that were true somehow that would justify how OP it is and how it just shuts down every other deck. Games can't go past turn 8 or you just lose.

    The only way to win is to play all these stupid aggro decks we see now, and even they don't always win.

    I just want to feel like I have a chance against any opponent I face. And that it shouldn't be unusual for a game to go into late turns. Delete this disgusting deck from the game.

    I have this same problem. Is there a fix?

    This fucking Rogue deck has got to be nerfed or deleted. Every game they draw their entire deck by turn 6 or 7 and kill you. You can be at 30 health, it doesn't matter. It is absolutely fucking ridiculous. The amount of mana cheating and card draw they get is absurd.

    I don't know what dipshit on Team 5 has such a hard-on for this class (e.g. Edwin Van Cleef lasting forever). But this has to change.

    posted a message on Hearthstone not fun in this state

    What is so infuriating about the state of the meta is that Team 5 pretends like nothing's wrong. There seems to be no rush to fix things, and no admission that the last round nerfs was woefully inadequate. They should all be fired. They're so bad at their jobs, and just don't give a crap. But Iksar tweets a lot at people!!!! Wow, what a hero.

    posted a message on Quest Mage is unstoppable.

    Ignite is also pure bullshit. It allows them to have infinite cards / damage.

    You know what really pisses me off? That the Auctioneer is back in so many decks. The game feels similar - but worse - to past stupid metas where a player could draw their entire deck using that card and finish off an opponent. The game should feel new each expansion. Yet this feels like I'm reliving a nightmare, except now it's even worse.

    They should never have put Auctioneer in the core set. What a dumb decision.

    posted a message on New Paladin Epic Card Revealed - First Blade of Wrynn

    This card has potential. I find turn 4 is often a weak turn in Paladin now, unless you have Cariel. It depends on if the divine shield / handbuff strategy will work or not. I'm skeptical unless some of the other cards available buff your hand. 

    There's no way that Invigorating Sermon ever sees play, so we need some new cards to make this work. 

    I am optimistic about the Prismatic Jewel Kit but if you don't draw that in your opening hand it isn't very good. Paladin needs something more.

    Quote from Amaranthus >>

    If any card will ever make me quit Hearthstone, it's Sethekk Veilweaver. What Priests can do if they get a perfect early draw with Sethekk Veilweaver, Nazmani Bloodweaver and Rally! or Gift of Luminance is absolutely gamebreaking. Not overpowered due to inconsistency, but absolutey insufferable when it pops off.

     These cards are infuriating. I am so sick of 2 or 3 drops that have insane value generation. They scream, "Kill me now!" or you are totally screwed.   No card should be able to result in infinite value either. It's just stupid card design.

    Quote from DarthDav >>

    Where did you find their statement?

    I'm pretty sure he responded during a stream where he said he didnt want to talk about it.

     They tweeted this afternoon they were suspending him. Nothing more offered.

    posted a message on Hearthstone Esports suspends Zalae

    Hearthstone Esports announced today it was suspending Paul "Zalae" Nemeth from future events due to very serious domestic abuse allegations.  

    If you wish to read about the allegations, please read them here. The victim explains what happened. It is very disturbing.

    I am curious what people think of this... if true, the allegations are awful and he should be arrested and prosecuted.

    But of course, he may deny them (not sure if he's responded), and he is being suspended immediately.

    Not really sure how Hearthstone can ever solve this problem, unless there were a court proceeding that determined the truth of the allegations.

    posted a message on I hope the nerfs come sooner rather than later

    The goal of a new expansion - and certainly a new year - should be to have a very different meta than what existed previously. 

    Penflinger is a major problem if you want to meet this goal. It's so good it's in too many decks. I'm just sick of it.  The game doesn't feel too different now, with the exception of Lunacy Mage, which is just awful.

    This card, the Watchtowers, and Deck of Lunacy have to be hit hard.

    posted a message on Worst meta since... Outland?

    Lunacy mage is indefensible bullshit. It is outrageously overpowered if they draw Lunacy on turn 2. The pool of spells that works well with the deck is too strong. And springwater is the dumbest card to be printed in years. Free draw two cards on turn 4?

    The meta would be much, much healthier if they did the following:

    1. Delete Lunacy, or at least increase its cost to 4.

    2. Delete Pen Flinger or make it so it can only target minions

    3. Reduce the durability on Sword of the Fallen to 2

    4. Reduce the health on the watchtowers so they can be killed more easily

    posted a message on Classic is actually better than Standard and Wild

    I never played in 2014. I'm trying classic now. 75% of my opponents are miracle Rogue.  Just boring that I keep seeing the same deck. I'm already bored.

    HsReplay's top 1000 legend list tonight, tier 1 standing - 3 out of 4 decks are Rogue.  

    The class is absolutely broken.  Its class set is too strong, and it is given a ridiculous number of cheap cards that allow it to generate or find resources. 

    It's pretty obvious someone at Blizzard loves this class and favours it over and over again. It's not amusing, it really pisses many of us off, and it should have been addressed years ago.
