    You don't need a list like that to fix most of the issues. The one posted just needs to use the word "Transform" to fix it. They use it on Hex already. Which is why the a silenced frog is just a frog without taunt.

    Games like MtG have well-defined keywords which specify exactly what happens. It's necessary for MtG because humans are interpreting the rules, so they need to be told exactly what to do.

    However, this isn't necessary for Hearthstone because the server interprets and enforces the rules. Having a lot of keywords could be a barrier to entry to Hearthstone, which is supposed to be fairly casual.

    After a few expansions you can get a lot of keywords. Imagine dumping this MtG keyword list on a new player:

    Honestly, they haven't been fixed because most players, such as myself, just don't care about them. It will be something that you may be surprised at the first time you see it, but after that, it just becomes another aspect of the game that you expect and plan around. 

    People often come over to forums to gripe about them the first time it happens to them when they weren't expecting it, but just like everyone else, they get used to it. 

    In a perfect world, they wouldn't be there, but our world is far from perfect, and I would rather Blizz spend time creating and balancing cards for the new expansion than touching up some old ones. 

    It's less important for sure. I'll grant that. But It really can't be a hard fix. And I have gotten used to it also, as you say. It is just very odd to me. It's amateur is what it is. It surprised me to see that and that they haven't patched the things. Each time gets in my way once or twice is all.

    they aren't the same because one is an option between two minions (4/4 charge or 4/6 taunt) while the other is a buff (10/5 or 5/10 taunt)

    similar cards, but not the same.


    how do you decide which is what when it is selection of two minions and when it is buff of minion? The logic of wording of both cards is very same: Choose one - <option1>; or <option2>.

    Exactly. They are worded exactly the same. Yet one is treated as a transformation and the other a series of buffs.

    I've played card games for some time now so I'm accustomed to reading a card and understanding how it triggers, what happens in what order and how a games mechanics will work. This game has so many instances of inconsistency. Things that could be resolved by very simple rewording. This post was what recently reminded me:

    http://www.hearthpwn.com/forums/hearthstone-general/general-discussion/20928-silencing-druid-of-the-claw-ancient-of-war#c11

    Those should work exactly the same. All they need to do is change the wording as described in the comments to fix it. There are other times, but I've played long enough to memorize exceptions and can't remember them at the moment.

    They seem like simple changes, and there are many people more experienced than I. Why haven't they been fixed?

    posted a message on arena not worth

    I like getting to play with a new deck every run... With cards I don't own yet... Against other people in the same position. I only play ladder to finish quests easier/faster when it doesn't match my arena hero. And I can only do that because of the cards I won from Arena already.

    But if it isn't fun for you, don't do it. Don't do any of it if it isn't fun. This is a game. A game with no fees, so you can come and go at will. Have fun!

    I really tried to make this guy good. But he's just not. How many minions carry damage over for a whole turn? And if it pulls a removal after you boost it, you've lost 2+ cards to one.

    Thoughtsteal really isn't a very good card. You rely on your opponent having good cards that will synergize with your deck at that moment. The other player knows they work in his deck. You do not. Arena might be a different story...

    posted a message on Hunter is good in arena now. What does it tell us?

    I see a few people mentioning Webspinners, but others are really not seeing it. A beast that nobody wants to go out of their way to kill, that draws a card off the buzzard or sits in wait for the Hyena to throw at a strong minion... Which replaces itself with a bigger card (or another webspinner) that you now have more mana for. The value in a rush deck is immense. It just combos with anything hunter related. I would have 10 in my deck and be a happy man.

    posted a message on Help with my stall/mill/deathwing deck

    Dancing Swords and the Deathlord are negatively effected by both Deathwing, Baron Rivendale, Duplicate and Unstable Ghoul. So I'd take them out for sure.

     

    Oh this is supposed to mill... This is too weak on milling. This just gives your opponent cards to play. You won't survive until Deathwing. And if you do, he'll have a full hand.

    posted a message on The booster pack system can kiss my butt

    You can also just ya know... Not spend money. Reroll quests each day to at least a 60. Play arena, don't buy packs. This game is free. If you want fair, then Arena is equal playing ground every game and it gives you cards and gold back.

    posted a message on Can you criticize my deck?

    I see very little killing potential here. And a whole lot of random. If you want to go combo then you need more combo. Mainly 2 eviscerates. I would take out the Owl, panther and spellbreaker for sure. Put in another Defias Ringleader and leper gnome.  Probably another cold blood.

    That's all I can see without completely reconstructing the deck...
