    Wow, Moon-Bacon Jazzer in tier 3, what an unprecedented change that will surely affect the meta in many new and never before seen ways

     Makes it easier to get Quillboar you actually want in Tier 2 and get things moving which is nice. Although, I would prefer it as a Tier 4 and gives +1/+1.

    Did you keep track of your games on HSReplay? If so, do share please. I'd like to see your sample size and the outcome to determine whether or not it's significant. 

     We all want the answer to that. Unfortunately, it's clear that they don't and they only respond to each other. They just work each other up rather than responding to anyone that as a counter point (even with actual proof). It's quite sad really.

    Blizzard for sure matches you with certain decks or starting hands that they know will cause a loss. It prevents ppl from going on 20 game winstreaks,

    According to the game's records, my longest winstreak is 65 games.

    I dunno. If the system is meant to prevent that from happening, it's doing a pretty bad job.

     

     Bro how is that even possible. 65 ranked games won in a row, how is that even possible.

     Can you provide a reason why he was able to do that when you said it was impossible? Seems like he destroyed anything you had to say with a single screenshot and a snarky one-liner.

    It's simply far too easy to manipulate player matches, card draw, or rng with algorithms if you understand anything about coding.

    Great, explain it. Give examples of a match where a player had spend more money and were given a perfect draw in a given situation against a player who was free-to-play. Explain it to me. Maybe you're right, maybe the game is rigged in that way. I'm only interested in the truth, it's certainly possible that I'm wrong.

    No. I'm not a dev assigned to building their proprietary algorithms, nor would I want to be. See, Blizzard has kind of this awful history of enforcing bad practices in their games of late from Hearthstone, to Wow, to Diablo, to Overwatch..and in many cases outright lying to gamers even.

    Why would I waste time. You believe what the hell you want to. This is a forum, not some municipal court.

    1.Most corporate entities in the gaming industry will do anything to get more $$$ out of player.

    2. Blizzard has very clearly stated this on multiple occasions that their matches are fixed to try to maintain a 50% win ratio for all players. What does that mean specifically? Who they hell knows, but it still means they rig matches whether you like it or not.

    3. Most players can attest to running into a suspicious string of counter decks based on what you put in your own deck and that's all the evidence I need.

    When the game wants you to lose, you will lose.

     I code for a living and I don't see any viability to doing what you are talking about. It could only be done if things were completely static and exist in a vacuum. Kind of like how a meta report does. You have to assume way too many things like that all players have the same collection, they all will put the same cards into a deck, they will always play optimally, they are at equal skill levels, the deck order and how that impacts the game, etc. And then on top of all that doing it in a way that no one who actually tracks these things will notice. Because it would show up in data. I guarantee you no developer is that good.

    Then on your points above:

    1. Yes very true. Hence why they are risk averse and don't like bad publicity. Rigging things to give certain groups of players higher win rates without telling them certainly does that.

    2. This is easily accomplished by matching you against a "Worthy Opponent". No rigging needed. it is that natural outcome on any ladder system. If you're a legend player you will likely be well above 50% until getting to high diamond and legend again and you are playing against your peers. 

    3. A small amount of bronze players on a forum where less than 0.01% of the player base frequents. Nice try buddy. In general, you should look for more evidence than that on anything in life. Confirmation bias is not truth. Care to answer about the guy above who had a 65 game winstreak?

    Also, I have not spent money on this game since 2015 and have noticed no such trends that are anything outside of normal variance. But then again I use a deck tracker so I actually know...

    Lol wut? People actually play Battlegrounds. It's not about skins. It's about it being a clearly inferior game mode that no one plays.

    Good riddance. Remove mercenaries at the same time and call it a day.

    posted a message on What is the worst class from a design perspective?

    So it's not about design perspective. It's just about which class you don't enjoy. No need to be so pretentious.

    The clear answer is Priest. It has been the only class that needed to get a complete redesign. Druid is a close second because it feels so limiting. It doesn't take much for Druid to be broken at any given time. The rest are pretty good.

    Quote from sxa >>

    I also wondered if there is some sort of script that penalyze players without tavern pass.

     

    Then how do I explain my recent run of just absolutely getting run over lately? I have bought the Battlegrounds Pass every time since it started.

    The amount of times lately I just run into an opponents who have boards that are just miles better than mine on turn 8-9 is ridiculous. I'm getting way more top 8's than top 4's as of late. It could also be that I rose in rating and am facing better players and have not adapted. That would probably be considered nonsense around here though.

    Of course, You can't prove much without documentation and data so I think I will start doing just that.

    Quote from DickDraggin >>

    It's a bust for me too.  I can't read what the anomaly is while choosing my hero on Android mobile. 

     I play on desktop and cannot hover over and read what anomaly it is 50% of the time lol. It just doesn't popup with text. 50% is probably generous though since some are blatantly obvious when you start.

    posted a message on yes keep adding horrible anomalies every week so nobody acn learn or do anything

    I'm having trouble keeping up with them at this point, but I do like them overall. There are some that just don't hit with me (one that gives right minion divine shield and left reborn) and some that I think should be there forever (tavern upgrades every 2 turns automatically). That's just the way it goes I guess. They make Battlegrounds way more interesting overall and provide new ways to play the mode.

    posted a message on The state of bots in Standard is absolutely pathetic.
    Quote from Zizka >>

    Where’s the enjoyment in winning without any challenge? I’m referring to those easy bot-wins. Suppose you reached Legend or high legend facing those bots, what have you achieved? 

     It's hard to believe that many words were written about a case that does not happen. No bots are ever gonna be anywhere close to legend. In fact for me they disappear well before I hit gold. The Blizzard ones I have never faced except in my first games of twist. Don't worry, your perceived sense of self-satisfaction is well protected. I swear nothing is worse than people who need to feel good about winning in a video game.

    I would mostly agree with that. Seems like that is a design choice too given the amount of things that encourage just getting enough stats to survive and moving through the tiers quickly. 

    Nevertheless, I still play them quite often. Just not a lot of first place finishes happening...

    Quote from BlueM00N >>

    There is something like a feedback. You obviously can't be happy all the time and adapt to everything that is thrown at you. I dont like some of the anomalies and that is why I play BG much less than before. Its ok if you enjoy them, that's your taste but for god sake don't assume someone is salty just because they don't like the changes.

     Some people want something competitive.  Some people, like that guy you were replying to, just are looking for time killing alternative to spanking the monkey.

     

    I think that they have been trying to tell the player base that it is not a competitive mode since Darkmoon prizes were first introduced. Seems like the majority of the player base appreciates this and likes this direction. Isn't there more self pleasuring involved in telling everyone how good you are at a non-competitive mode? Also, I'm not looking for an alternative to "spanking the monkey". I can do both at the same time and still move up in the ranks quite well.
