So, yeah, it happened to me again.
I was playing arena, all cool as usual and then my opponent plays a card, but it never lands on the board. It started floating over his hero and stayed there untill I lost. There was no rope, my turn never came, I couldn't do anything about it other than forfeit the game.
What am I supposed to do in those situations? I'm sure it also happens to you guys from time to time. I tried quiting Hearthstone before and re-entering the game, but HS just considers it leaving and gives me a loss. I tried waiting, but nothing happens. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting my device to wi-fi, but it doesn't react in any way or it shows me the "playful sprites" screen sometimes.
So what would be the correct behaviour that would let me finish the game?
So, today I was in a place with a pretty slow wi-fi, and I just wanted to draft an arena to play later, since I like it the most of anything in Hearthstone and I had a minute anyway. I tapped on button to pay with gold, but nothing happened, so I tapped again. Then the game disconnected, and when I logged in again I noticed I'm missing 300 gold.
Also, there's no pack waiting to be open, so it's not like an instant retire, it's just like it never happened.
Did it happen to anybody else?
I'm kinda hotblooded. If I'm winning it's good, but if I start a loosestreak and drop a rank it's over- I'm gonna make tons of mistakes I wouldn't normally, and I cannot cool down. Even if I start winning again, I'll not be calm again before I reclaim the rank I had before the streak started, and that usually wouldn't happen to quickly.
Same for arena, If I loose two matches in a row it's nearly impossible not to loose the third one, unless it was a good match and a good opponent.
If you're thinking up new ideas you should probably take a closer look at Grim Patron in the first BRM wing. Now that Warsong Commander got buffed, all the dudes spawned through this card are also gonna go charging, spawning more dudes possibly. Combo Warrior could become a thing if there's anybody out there trying to make it work.
Same for Tempo Mage and Overload Shaman, as I mentioned before. Dragon Palladin or Dragon Priest could work, as well as New-School-Miracle-Rogue, using Emperor Thaurissan to deliever insane amounts of dmg in one turn.
BRM brings a lot of cool possibilities, I can easily tell. The thing is- are they gonna be better than existing ones, or at least consistent enough to compete with them?
Why would he wait, if he can grind in the arena at the same time?
Dude, if you're good in arena just go for it. Complete the Naxx, buy the first wing of BRM and then grind, grind, grind! That's what I'd say after all we discussed. Looking forward to meet you there, I'm gonna be grinding too ;)
Well, Military Quarter is garbage, if you're not gonna play that revival-heavy shaman and if you don't care for Voidcaller. But Construct Quarter used to be the best one before Undertaker nerf, and containing Zombie Chow and Mad Scientist I would still consider it to be a usefull one. Even more than this, it gives you 2 of the best class cards released in Naxx, that is Death's Bite and Dark Cultist.
Apart from Dragon Consort Blackrock Spire sucks pretty hard, but Blackwing Lair is the best one, I would say. It has 2 great class cards- Flamewaker, which may give the last push to the Tempo Mage, and Fireguard Destroyer, which might be a very nice addition to shamans, if Overload Shaman is a thing. And Chromaggus seems like a nice card, if the meta shifts a bit towards controll.
Well, KT is nice in some druid decks, and some people play a crazy shaman variation with a lot of revival and stuff like that. If I remember well, there was also mighty Shade of Naxxramas in that wing, which became easily the best 3 drop in the game for a long, long time. On the other hand, Majordomo Executus is complete garbage. There's no single deck you could play him in succesfully. But the same wing gives you Blackwing Technician... So if you plan on playing dragons it's probably wort it.
After BRM I really believe that rogue's gonna be on the rise, mainly thanks to Emperor. So the first wing is highly advised. Also palladins are gonna get some nice stuff with the Dragon Consort card, but if you don't have any decent dragons than it's not gonna work for you.
Honestly? If that's a new account I would first improve my arena skills and then play it all the time. If you go 7 wins you get the gold back, so it's a free pack and some benefit in dust and more gold sometimes. If you go 12 it's insane value, you'll often get 400+gold , sometimes double pack or a big amount of dust to craft some decent cards.
Aphrodite, He Bo, Artemis, Anubis, Arachne, Serquet and Sylvanus are damn good.
But man, pretty good job. I really like how they are all unique, and in some scenario, some decks, they could all see play. They also seem pretty balanced, just the ones I mentioned seen a little bit OP but it's ok, they're legendaries :d
It's a shame they don't fit the lore and will never be introduced in the game. I would love to see some Arachne-Anubis action.
Oh, and cool avatar :d
