    Call this what you want, but I have a curse when it comes to RNG in this game. I'm not losing my mind, this is for real.

    In all of my 3 years playing this game I actually cannot recall getting "the nuts." At the very best I get mediocre hands. I'm not saying this happens every single time, but this happens so much I cannot stress this enough.

    Meanwhile, my opponent always has the nuts. Every single game is a struggle, honestly. I have actually broke down in tears at how unlucky I can be, it us really soul crushing,and everytime I get so close to winning my opponent mounts the most epic come back. This happens no matter which format I'm in..I just cannot ladder up not because I'm bad I don't think I'm great at spotting certain things but I know enough and I try my hardest...

    Arena is really weird for me. If I draft a really good deck, I do poorly because my opponent just gets the nuts, and when I draft at least a mediocre deck it does surprisingly well.

    TD;LR I have literally the worst luck imaginable when it comes to this game. I'm sorry I said alot but I just had to get this off my chest. Maybe it'll make me feel better if some of you share my experience...but least to say I think it's time I hung up my hat on this game. My luck has officially run out.

     Have you tried using mulligan guides? HSReplay premium is good as you can check the WR of cards with and without the coin and against each class at specific ranks.

    Due to how linear Hearthstone is most game will be won and lost in the mulligan. You will probably be surprised by which cards should be kept or tossed.

    If you follow a good guide for a strong deck there’s no reason you won’t climb. 

     The illusion of strategy was removed with the creation of ZTG. 

     I don’t care about your conspiracies. Crack on and moan about being bad at the simplest card game on the market in your own time, Darksun200 seemed to want advice.

    ZTG is also an awful example, it’s the single most skill intensive card in the game.

    And I don't care about your fantasies of skill still being a part of this game. If you want to believe more power to you. I'm not one to go around telling kids in line to see Santa that it's just a guy in a suit.

    Oops! I hope I didn't ruin that for you as well!

     Skill?  In Hearthstone?  Maybe in Bronze it has something to do with game outcomes, sometimes.  But once you get to anywhere near Platinum or especially Diamond..... it is 100% purely based on matchup and draw luck.  The decks are too cancerous and brain-dead at those levels.  There are NO misplays.  You cant misplay when you dont  get the fucking cards you need.  Or your opponent barfs their hand on board with 40/40 worth of stats every turn.  Its way too polarizing.  I should know.  Im "stuck" at the D2/D3 level because I refuse to play cancer decks. so, I win the good matchups and always lose the bad ones. 

    Skill my ass.  People just say that top make themselves feel better and to remove guilt about getting legend with totally broken and brain-dead decks.  Please.  We're not fooled there, big champ.  Idiots.

     You’re bad at the simplest card game out there and you’re making up excuses for why. Grow up.

     Your attempts at humour are awful btw, you would probably be best off avoiding trying to be clever in the future as you clearly don’t have the character for it.

    Skill in Hearthstone is evident over a large sample of games. The RNG in the game is too high for single games to be a measure of anyones skill. ZTG is a great example of this as a player who uses that card correctly will have a far greater win rate over a large sample of games than somebody who uses it wrong. 

    I don’t expect you to understand any of this, so I’m not sure why I’m even bothering.

    I have been wondering:

    is this abomination of a card balanced?

     stop crying, there are tons of defensive cards in all classes to counter it. U can poly to not be revived, u can secret 8 armor, u can play warrior, u can use taunts, armor cards stuff that get u ahead of DH's Inquisitor face strategy.

     He isn’t crying. He was actually very calm. You’ve made yourself look a bit silly.

    posted a message on Where are control decks?

    If you tanked your MMR or stayed around at certain rank floors you faced a lot of Ticklocks. I used to play around with Highkeeper Ra Rogue and as my WR was probably around 45% it felt like I was in purgatory at Diamond 5 with Ticklock being the biggest matchup I would face followed by Stealth Rogue.

    I think a lot of people who grind more optimised lists just avoided the experience and don’t have a clear picture of what the game was like to play back then for a lot of people (I assume).

    Granted you can blame them for playing greedy decks, that’s a fair criticism, and a lot of the moaning was completely misguided, you’re right. I suppose I just understand their frustration, they probably just need to take a break though and/or try another game.

    posted a message on Where are control decks?

    I haven’t played the game in a little while, but the reason Control decks don’t work in Hearthstone like they used to is due to every archetype (including control) becoming faster with higher impact cards and increased card draw. Tickatus was just an extension of that. He wasn’t THE problem, just a very visually obvious part of it.

    Make no mistake though, Tickatus IS bad for the control archetype, especially for players who don’t play meta lists.

    emicampo just needs to download a free screen capturing software and record a few dozen games and he'll be able to blow this whole thing wide open.

    If he's so amazing at the game that Blizzard need to target his account with bias RNG to make it fair on the rest of us, to such an extent that they're making Felmaw hit face literally every single time, then this would be very easy to highlight.

    Like seriously.  it wouldn't take any effort at all and you could sell this story to the gaming press as they would be very interested to see it.

    That's strange because me and my friend carried out the same experiment, I'm currently on a 118 streak of Felmaw hitting a minion. which is odd because in 89 of those cases there wasn't even another minion on board.

    posted a message on Archdruid Naralex's RNG is Rigged?

    Well the messenger in this case is misinterpreting the message, so yes, shoot the messenger.

    I would consider myself a fairly rational person, and I’ve said multiple times on this forum how I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if Blizzard were manipulating things to the detriment of gameplay in order to increase the profitability of the game. I don’t trust game publishers, and I certainly don’t trust Activision.

    With that said, every time you or one of your crew come into a thread with you tails in the air, posting ‘evidence’ and ‘facts’ I can’t help but weep for humanity. You have never once posted ANYTHING which actually proves, or even heavily implies what you are claiming.

    In Mathematical tests the main points are given for those who can show their working out, regardless of whether they get the answer correct or not. You score a zero for your working out. You may be right however, Blizzard MAY be rigging the game. Maybe.

    If you want people to take what you are saying seriously then I think you need to go back to the drawing board. Read your ‘evidence’ carefully and understand it, understand what conclusions you can draw from it and then figure out what statements can be conclusively made. Your final message won’t be as definitive you want it to be but it won’t be riddled with holes either.

    He isn’t saying it’s not rigged so there’s no burden on him to prove anything, at least in this thread.

    You cannot make definitive statements without correctly backing them up. Especially if you’re attacking those who disagree.

    What you are saying isn’t evidence for any of these claims.

    Believing Blizzard COULD be manipulating RNG for nefarious reasons because of these things is fair enough, but trying to claim 100% that they ARE is where you’re going wrong, and where you come across as a zealot.

    Why don’t the mods just sticky a ‘Rigged RNG/Matchmaking’ thread where all of this stuff can go? 

    I’m being semi-serious here, even the Salt thread has become less interesting as you have to wade through conspiracies to get to the entertaining salt posts.

    The OP hadn’t said anything to indicate his post was in bad faith so I’m not sure why his post count is being judged?

    There are millions of players who have played since beta and haven’t posted on this forum.
