    posted a message on Battlegrounds would be more fun with a chat room

    In theory I agree but this game more than most others that I've played has a particularly toxic and immature player base. It would just be a shit show.

    Quote from Inzan1ty >>

    Greedzard at its best, cant even hype us up a bit more giving out a couple free packs for the new expansion.

    Totally wouldn't be surprised if they manage to patch that and I end up opening AoO packs on Launch day.  xD

     They are giving free packs for it. Ironic that you call them greedy for trying to run a business but in the same breath throw your toys out the pram for not getting more free stuff. Nothing like a little hypocrisy to undermine yourself.

    posted a message on Killbin or Kibler?

    I personally feel that kibler is probably the better player and if I want to understand a deck I'll check him or Old Guardian out because they explain their thoughts and generally pilot decks very well. 

    Regis is more entertaining though and if I have YouTube on in the background or just want to watch something that isn't thought intensive then his videos are great. I watch him more than I do Kibler. He puts a lot of effort into his content and is good to watch. I think he'd do a great job on the reveal streams. 

    Not sure why you would need to pick between them though. They create different content which would generally cater to a slightly different audience.

    0, didnt preorder and never will :)

     Strange then that you would come into a thread specifically about opening pre order packs. Do you have an inferior complex? Why bother reading it or leaving this comment, it literally adds zero value to the thread or anything else? Did it make you feel a bit better to make sure a few people were aware that you don't pre order or something, maybe make you feel a bit superior in some odd way?

    posted a message on Druid with 2573 armor, WTF ?!?!?!
    Quote from DiamondDM13 >>

    So odd that so many people's first reaction to a cool combo is to think it needs to be taken out. I really wish people appreciated the wonder that is Combo and the ridiculous things they can do. Other playstyles cannot even begin to hope to get close to the amount of fun Combo brings.

    It's a shame, Aggro, Midrange and Control are so boring in comparison, with almost every match being unremarkable. You need 500 games with these playstyles to enter a tense or memorable situation that is really enjoyable, yet with Combo, even a single game, if you pull it off, can bring you the same fun and joy with one game.

     I think it's mainly due to it being very unfun to lose against and sometimes makes games feel like they are on a pointless countdown. I personally dislike playing against combo decks more than any other. Some decks just simply can't do anything and when you spend 10/15 minutes making the right decisions and controlling the game only to get cheesed down from 30 health by a bunch of discounts then it's very unsatisfying. 

    I get why some people enjoy them, each to their own. I just find them very uninteractive to play against. I prefer control decks and understand people don't like playing against control and I'm sure there are aggro players who bang their head against the wall after their board is cleared yet again.

    posted a message on Cant host fireside event please help!!!

    Have you gone to join it in game? I didn't understand how they worked at all and it was only this time around I realised that you launch the game, click on your friends list and then at the very top it let's you join your gathering. I believe it also takes an hour after you've set it up. So if you set it for 2 at 1.30 then it won't let you join until 2.30.

    I could be totally wrong though

    The gold packs are not included in the pity timer, from what I understand. So it wouldn't make a difference.

    no offense but for me people who spend real $ in HS are just ****

     Interested in what you feel the need is to post this? Does it help validate you in some way? What do you get out of it? It's a really sad attitude to have, to be prepared to say something purely to antagonise or upset someone/people with absolutely nothing to gain from it. It's a trait shared by psychopaths and not a particularly healthy way to be of you ask me.

    Got 4 from the 140/both bundles, no goldens. Easily the worst I've ever done, and possibly almost the worst you can do with pity timer in mind.

     Ah that's rough, sorry to hear that. Really poor luck but at least you get another 2 in golden on Thursday right?

    Pro tip:  Open your packs on mobile as it is so much faster to swipe through the cards instead of clicking on them one at a time on desktop.

     Just use space bar, it even pulls the next pack and opens it so you don't need to do anything except spam space bar.

    posted a message on Theorycrafting Livestreams - Thursday, July 30

    Because there are players, seemingly a large amount, who don't find that aspect of the game all that fun. Deck building isn't for everyone and some people don't want to spend hours tinkering and experimenting. They have children and families, work commitments etc and maybe get half hour or an hour to play.

    The majority of the player base in almost any game is fairly casual. The developers HAVE to cater to this. Go on a random 10 forums for pvp based games and you'll have a bunch of them which include threads whining about casuals. I've seen it in almost every game community I've been in. 

    We can't all spend 8 hours playing hearthstone, we have other shit to do. Just don't watch the streams and on day 1 do all the experimenting you want. There will be plenty of people who are in a similar position to you.

    So... maybe just don't watch?

    I absolutely get it if you would rather pass and wait for the expansion to drop, for your own sake. But all these posts whining about Blizzard putting on a stream for those that do enjoy them have to be somewhere in between the most childish and the most selfish thinking I've seen this week. Imagine thinking a one-night stream is going to "figure out the meta" one week before release.

     It's honestly going to be built mainly by jealousy. I don't imagine any of these people would turn down the chance to play a week early, they are just bitter that other people get to. 

    Exact same complaints in Fifa, streamers get early access and people piss and moan that it kills the hype etc etc, just regurgitate more of the crap you see here. These are just people who are very twisted up inside because they are missing out. 

    The META doesn't get solved at all. We've all seen the cards, even people who don't have early access and don't watch the streams are already theory crafting and building decks, ready for day 1. Everyone in the community has this opportunity and forums etc will be alive with people discussing them. That will have a far, far bigger impact than a select number of streamers getting to play around and get watched by about 1% of the player base. But of course the people who do complain don't have the ability to consider things in a rational way or think of anything other than themselves which is why they act out and spam twitch or reddit or forums complaining about the meta getting 'solved'.

    Its so transparent.

    posted a message on Reveal stream time?

    Also, I think the stream is at 5pm gmt which is 10am pt. 

    Would much rather Regis be doing it, far better personality than Kripp and it seems a bit off to have someone who doesn't play standard get to do the reveal. I also just think Kripp comes across as a right little worm, Regis has a lot of passion for standard, puts a lot of effort into his content to keep it interesting and funny. 

    Let Kripp do BG content and people like Regis or Dekkster doing the regular stuff. Even Kibler is OK.

    posted a message on Reveal stream time?

    I'm very much looking forward to it. I don't tend to study all the cards before launch because I like forgetting half of them - it makes the pack opening a bit more fun, so I tend to forget a chunk of the cards but this expansions doesn't seem to have many filler type cards at all. Everytime a new card gets revealed it seems to do something, or at least potential to do something in a future expansion.

    Should open up a good amount of new decks and if they can build on the amount of viable decks we've had recently then the ladder should continue to be more diverse. Some very cool effects and combinations coming up, should be a very fun tinkering period, on release.
