Super nice The_M4Khh !
I am in :) .
Jeez man, what a mammoth post!
Never heard of TL;DR :P ? If you limit yourself a bit, there'd likely be a bigger chance at some community interest. Don't you think?
No man, I do like the idea, will probably make and play some of the decks myself. But With druid, my favorite hero.
thank you for your reply (!) . You are right. The "mammoth" post and wall of text wasn't such a good idea..
Fantastic that you would follow the idea! With the drood. Will it be all about the ramp? No FON/ Roar anymore.. I'm very curious how many wins u'll be able to eek out with the "starter-decks" (, Classic, Naxx and so on) against nowadays-game.
Lemme know please :)) .
The first 5 years of HS you could have fun with homebrews in Wild and still reach Diamond 5 (Rank 5) with ease. But over the last 1.5-2 years the powerlevel of metadecks in wild has gotten so high, that this no longer is true. You can still play homebrews, i still exclusivly play my own homebrews because that is MY way of having fun. I can still get to Diamond 5, but you have a lot less options that are viable these days. That is just a fact that you have to face, things have changed, it's not the same game it used to be.
But onceupop, why do you expect yourself to reach Dia5?
"you have a lot less options that are viable these days" -- isn't that a big pity, that you restrict urself to the decks that are viable as opposed to playing what u would like most?
You might only reach Dia10, or Gold, or Silver even but you would plausibly have more fun?
Allll right. Thàt was pure carnage.
If I keep this winrate up I'll be legend in no time.
Howly Mowly, no less than 7 losses in a row. Yes, yes, I did make a mistake by falling for my pet-archetype once again, sorry guys! I just can't help it.
Howlfiend-Treachery-Defile was simply too juicy! You can imagine, right? (Right......?) Kiddin aside, this deck leaves no margin for error WhatSoEver. Just look at a C like Skelemancer (or Arfus). The tempo lost is obviously huge. Just can't find time to make up for that. Worst winrate of all the decks.

Let's see what the next Xpansion'll bring. Gonna make something with BR Gul'Dan, since KFT he entered the fray, that'll boost the wr beyond recognition, won't it guys? Anyone remembers what Xpac came after Knights Frozen Throne? I for one don't have a clue.
Well dear fellow HSPwn'ers,
please do Not try this at home. The deck sort of "meta" in april 2014, when Our Wonderful Game first saw the light of day (or came out of beta-testing at least), zooLock, doesn't hold its own anymore..
When I lost 4 games (and more losses soon to follow) in a row, damn did I lose hope. Became salty as **** . Had this feeling yesterday evening, that I simply had to plow through these 15 matches (which wasn't a good idea obviously, just looking at my disgruntled face indicated enough).
I chose to add 1 extra game this time around because the druid of match 15 gave up at Tu 4 (my start was the nuts) .

Also, the deck wasn't very well made I'm afraid.
it really IS such a fun experience to relive the experience one had when an old expansion came out. Remember i.e. UnGoro? Ow man, I loved Elise Trailblazer to death! Now, she is rarely used anymore. In combo with Priest's Shadow Visions though, she still makes for loads of value.
As promised yesterday, here are the results for the UnGoro Xpansion:

Ow yeah, whoops, forgot to state where I play the decks:
Wild (obviously) - at the lowest ranks possible (that is, anywhere between silver 10- silver 4/3). I find I've the most fun there - biggest variation of opponents. Also, to b honest, at these ranks I can still win the odd game here and there: not unimportant.

"I forgot Classic (I'll do it soon ^^) " -->
Thank u for looking/ reading! Much appreciated.
Hey Guys! Hiya Gals!
At the beginning of most expansions I've this inclination to lump some of the newest cards together in a RenoLock-framework.
This time around it added up to 4 different Lock-decks for me; Based around Watchposts/ Tamsin/ Deck Thinning// well, Mankrik, Burning Blade Aco and the likes. Of course including new Jaraxxus, who is boss.
Then, felt like doing the same for each n every expansion we have seen. Format: Minimum 10 Cards of an Xpansion in the deck; Naturally we can only use Cards that had been released when the Xpac came out; 15 games per Xpac: Let's see how these inherently flawed decks perform (winrate of tiny sample size) in current environment; I only do Lock (u gotta start somewhere right); Nozdormu Eternal is the only exception + has to be in every deck (cause we like fast games).
I forgot Classic (I'll do it soon ^^) ; Started out with Naxx. Up till now, have finished Mean Streets Gadge; Busy with J2Ung.
Anyone wanna help me in doing this "quest"/ What class do u choose? Based around what archetype? Surprise me dear fellow HSpwn'ers!
I find it quite rewarding restricting oneself instead of just using the best cards out there, always.
Wanna share my results thus far with you:

just to make other ppl sad,rage and (my personal favourite) add and try to flame me as there is nothing better than feeling the salt on the air.There 0 other reason to play this game if you want fun go play sth else
Kaiser, isn’t that…. a bit on the shallow end of reasons to devote your time to, well, anything at all? (Or is there truly as much fun here to be had?)
Hey all good, no need to justify. :D These are just crazy numbers, you'll have to admit. ;) Let's hope for a bright future for Hearthstone, maybe we'll meet in ladder one day, who knows. :D
I admit, readily :) . Not justifying, merely “explaining”. Nah, I just love to hear my own voice I guess.. :0
Yes, I Do hope for a bright future of this majestic game. Do you remember the first time You came across HS? The first time you made a deck, scored a win?
Well, I do ^^ . "This - is - sheer - genius". Those were the words echoing in my skull. Of course, I wasn’t used to anything of the sort. Didn’t know Magic. What an awakening.
I have over 10k wins with Paladin. When secret pala was unbeatable, it was almost autowin every single time, for months. Same with Warrior, when pirate warrior was unbeatable.
Damn, 10K wins with 1 class, impressive Suskis! You must have relished the forming of Pure pally not too long ago (as well as Broom pally) then!
But uh……… how bout the other 8/9 classes? What are these numbers at :P ?
(...) Yeah, there are some great cards in Wild and I'm still happy I got them in gold. I did pretty well ito dust when some of them were HoF'd but overall I got burned when they split the formats into Standard and Wild. So much dust on so many cards I can't use in the main format. Ugh.
Uh, but uhm, Wild is the main format, right??
I've been following competitive HS for a few years now I'm probably less interested in it now than I was before. I enjoyed the recent World's though but there was a time during Swiss or shortly after where I felt there was just too much GM content. Personally I don't really like the GM format. It feels too closed. Always the same players. The format stops unknown players from breaking into the big leagues and I don't think that's a good thing. I also think the format is kinda dull. The weeks where everyone had to bring decks from every class and we were treated to endless matches of jank Shaman decks was painful to watch, I don't think I lasted more than 20 minutes. Definitely not the way to showcase the game.
Only Username, was there a distinction between GM and “normal” competition? The latter meaning, where simply everybody can partake? It can’t be the case that only “GM’s” can become “World Champion”, right? That wouldn’t merit the very term...
Shouldn’t blizz make all this a lot clearer to everybody? It comes across as quite cloudy/ shrouded (?) .
Over the years I have spent a lot on this game. I'm too scared to go and check my Blizz account to see exactly how much I've actually spent but it's way more than $1,000. At least Blizzard were able to upgrade their EU servers with that money :D I don't think there's a right or wrong amount to spend on the game. Depends on your circumstances. If you can get by and enjoy the game while spending very little or even no money, great. Same for those who choose to spend more.
Hey! dear Username! Please Never be scared to leave :) ! The money you poured into HS has been 101% worth it (even it'd be 10.000 euri). At the time of purchase, I mean. In retrospect… yeah, not so much, but that’s not the way to look at it.
Are you piss-poor now? Living on the streets because of your HS-expenditure? Didn’t think so ;) .
I understand. Then, as it is with me, it comes down to the question: “Do you like the game, the ideas behind HS, the “Lore”, the mechanics, etc, enough to keep on devoting your time to gearing up into the queue (once in a while?) , heading into some cardslingin action?” Is HS in its core attractive enough?
It's OK but I could definitely do with more variations, like every month different wild cards are shuffled back in the standard set or some cards get buffed or nerfed depending on the staleness of the meta. Also, the problem with the legend rank is that the progress kind of ends there. Climbing the legend ranking is too slow and tedious and requires playing constantly.
Unless you are very good fab!
That could be your goal: Becoming a millimeter better than yesterday (there must be a couple of ways You know how you could improve) and thus climbing the legend ranking faster.
More variations: You have my blessing. I would also welcome that hugely.
I am just a f2p/casual collector. I don't know why but I like farming and hoarding in all kinds of games. Yeah. That's it.
Do you derive some pleasure from simply playing the game Kaliosa? I sincerely hope you do!
