    posted a message on Archdruid Naralex's RNG is Rigged?
    Quote from IDProG123 >>

    This is not confirmed, but it's obvious that Imprisoned Felmaw's RNG isn't purely random. Its RNG is 50% face, 50% board. This means that adding more minions (than 1) on the board won't help you avoid an attack to the face.

    Is Archdruid Naralex the same? Because I swear I get Nightmare like 50% of the time.

     

     That's interesting, if you could link the source of the confirmation of this by Blizzard or an extensive study which shows this is how it works then that would be great. 

    Helpful tip for future - just list sources in your post. It clears up a lot of confusion or people rejecting what you're saying. Not listing them could appear like you don't have one and you're just making it up based on 'feelings'.

    Quote from Plahtica >>

    i agree, it's not viable in standard at all. i don't want a tier 1 deck as those are not fun to me, but i'd like to have a decent deck that has a chance to win

     

     What a hilarious thing to say. People like you are dead funny.

    posted a message on Anyone else feels sad wild is treated the way it is?

    I've just recently started playing wild, probably with around 2 weeks left of last month, maybe a few days less. I'm not experienced with it at all but in my experience the OP is pretty hyperbolic. I have found that you typically play a decent variety of decks, I made a quest mage with as many discover cards and raid the sky temple and it did alright. Not sure on the win rate but I was climbing, also tried a Tess rogue which is clearly not competitive but if my goal is to have fun, I can personally still do that without winning the game. 

    I only had time to get to diamond 2 but if you believe the doomsayers on here, you expect it to be a complete shit fest and it really isn't. I don't know a majority of the decks and although I did use highlander mage for some, I wasn't playing a tier 1 deck, I got on just fine.

    Idiots on here honestly talk so much shit. I didn't really bother with wild because of all the crap that gets said but I had a blast, I've continued playing it and continue to not see what people are bitching about. Some games have some crazy stuff go on but that's the whole damn point, isn't it? The clue is in the name.

    Also, despite not being a wild player I've been aware of multiple balance changes they've made that impact the mode. People exaggerate and lie to try and make their point, this place is absolutely full of it, so this really shouldn't surprise me.

    Quote from Nahuel >>

    Worked now. Guess it's repaired.

     It's not anything that's had to be repaired, this thread literally has responses explaining what causes this. It's not a Blizzard issue either, games I've played before sometimes release faster on xbox than PlayStation, due to the checks on psn which delays it. 

    See the same thing there as well, people kicking off, saying the devs are incompetent etc. I can't help but judge someone for being monumentally stupid when they are throwing around insults and accusations of incompetence when in fact it's their complete ignorance that means they don't understand why these things happen. Stupid people must spend so much time angry about things they don't understand.

    posted a message on Hero portrait shop opinion and game monetization

    Introducing more options is a positive in my book. It feels like they are testing the water when it comes to cosmetics, what the demand is etc and if it is popular, it might not directly lead to cheaper packs etc but it does enable them more flexibility with things like the battle pass. If they are able to up the gold given in that a bit because the cosmetic side is successful, then it leads to more people playing more of the game and that's the key thing, the more someone plays, the more invested they become and the more likely they are to then buy a skin or some packs.

    I don't buy into the idea that they are just purely greedy, obviously they need to make money and they will have to look to increase this, that'd what businesses do. I do believe that they want as many people playing the game as possible and spending money in a manner they are happy with. If they are able to increase revenue and balance this with making the game a little more affordable then I feel they will do so. They have shown they will do so. When I started playing, there were very, very limited options. Over time I feel its become more reasonable to buy into the game without having to commit hundreds of £. I know this for a fact because I don't spend anywhere near that amount and I have a large collection, can make any deck I want in standard, have a ton of dust and gold in reserve and have started branching out into wild. In my personal experience, the game is more affordable than it was 2 years ago.

    posted a message on Why are Mage and Rogue so popular?

    People are so funny in how they build up a prejudice against an entire group of people based on really Perry things. This thread has had some reasoned, well worded responses and some absolute messes that I imagine were written by a ten year old who struggles with words.

    People build up an intense hatred for 'priest players'. So now it's hunter, priest, mage, rogue, demon hunter who are all terrible people, anti fun pay to win, brainless idiots. The irony that the people who can only muster this sort of response are generally describing themselves.

    Both classes are pretty versatile and have been given archetypes and cards that require more thought than play the minion for tempo. They are quite fun classes whilst also pretty powerful. I've played mage decks extensively even if they have a low win rate, mainly because I'm not bothered about climbing, that just happens, but I am bothered about not feeling like I'm doing the same thing over and over again and aggressive decks or strong tempo decks just feel like that to me.

    Quote from 30phillosgamer >>

    Quote from 30phillosgamer >>

    deck is not viable for climb at least with the w/r I like ... Don't expect more than a 55 % wr right now. At HS Replay miracle Rogue is Tier 3 with 48% wr so Trash... 

     Don't forget that these win rates aren't simply a reflection of the power of a deck, but reflects how successful people are. 

    If you get a ton of low skill players trying to pilot a deck and failing, the win rate will be impacted. A win rate of 48% isn't the natural power of that deck, I always allow a buffer either side to account for particularly good or particularly poor use of the deck.

    Despite what the hysterical crowd on here will have you believe, there is skill involved in this game and there are clearly a lot of very bad players, going by the figures I've seen before of numbers in each rank (assuming these are even just fairly accurate, the actual number of players getting to legend is very small).

    So it also helps to clarify which rank you're quoting when you say 48% because that doesn't tell the full story. 

     The point is that for the majority of Hs players Miracle Rogues is not the deck to climb. I always liked rogue and been playing the class since forever with all the deck variants. As for the skill lvl I reach Legend 1500 -2000 and I don't bother anymore cause I don't care plus the amount of games I play are very few. But with Rogue the matches I get can't win them mostly face hunter aggro pala, the wr is around 55-60 % and that just doesn't cut it for me. I don't have time to play 300 games to Legend. I see posts of people that play 100 games from D5 to Legend. That to me is Insane so I don't bother to play a deck that isn't tier 1 or gives you a headache to have a good wr. I hope Rogue gets stronger like the Gala days were I actually enjoyed playing the class. 

     My comment wasn't aimed at your skill level, I was more addressing the 48% overall win rate not being the defining power of that deck. Maybe it's not an efficient climbing deck, I don't know, but just saying it has a 48% win rate without specifying what rank that's from or giving any other information why so ever and is therefore trash isn't convincing to me, that's all.

    posted a message on Is it Worth It to Disenchant Wild Cards for Standard?
    Quote from Xauriel >>

    I thought about this very often but I do Play duels so it's a different thing.

    Here is what I did after my comeback. I hand picked cards, one by one, making sure I only disenchant goldens when I had the basic ones and also all cards that are definitly trash, including useless legendary.

    This gave me a truckload of dust and a super quick comeback without the feeling of deleting my whole colection. 

     

     This is pretty much what I started doing. I did used to dust everything and I have regretted that a bit. I started playing wild last month (having previously been absolutely sure I never, ever would) and was glad I'd changed my approach. I'd kept cards like zilliax and others, clearly good cards. Anything fringe or for a deck/archetype I just don't enjoy, such as some old legendary that only really fits in like token druid, for example, then I dusted those. 

    I've actually found wild to be a ton of fun and kind of evidence that a lot of absolute nonsense gets spouted on places like this, by people who seem more interested in spreading discontent about the game than anything else. From what I'd heard, wild was a broken mess the devs don't care about it, it has stupid decks and combos etc etc. I've actually found it really quite diverse much, much more so than standard. I don't cover up against the really string 'broken' decks all that often and even when I do, I've been able to get a good amount of wins against them, once I know what they are about. I used highlander mage, espionage rogue and a sky temple quest mage and hit diamond 2 without any real effort.

    I would personally recommend saving the good wild cards at least. They are so inefficient from a cost perspective to craft that unless you absolutely need the dust, just leave them. Of course, if you want a specific card or deck and have no dust, you probably may as well. I'd just only do it as and when it was really needed. Don't dust cards just to sit on dust.

    posted a message on I am now forced to admit a Blizz does not care about the meta

    To say they don't care seems lazy to be quite honest. They obviously do care, even if only to make money through increased engagement, they care about the state of the game.

    Just be objective, highlight why the meta isn't particularly enjoyable for you at this time. I happen to agree, I don't really enjoy standard at the moment and feel an injection of cards is very much needed. Part of this is typical, following a rotation, I generally get a bit bored of the meta much quicker than with the other 2 expansions in a year.

    As I said, the lazy accusations of them not caring don't really do anything to further discussion on why the meta is less enjoyable and also bear in mind that whether the meta is enjoyable or not is subjective, some people are very happy with it. I think I've seen every meta described as 'the worst' and usually with the same 'been a player since beta'. 

    Hysterical, emotional jibes at the devs are pretty much never particularly interesting or convincing and turns a potentially constructive conversation into a salt thread.

    posted a message on [Forged in the Barrens] Off-Meta Tournament

    Good idea, I've repeatedly suggested this to those complaining about not being able to use their own decks on ladder.

    It's obviously a first attempt and I'm sure you'll learn and tweak things but go for it! Even try Reddit or Facebook, maybe you could even setup a sub reddit or Facebook group and grow a bit of a community. Obviously that's more down the line but I think a lot of people would enjoy it.

    Not really my bag but I'm glad to see someone doing something positive and pro active instead of just complaining, good for you.

    What might be a good idea is to gather a handful of interested people on here first and work out an agreed format/bans list. I definitely think there's a clear demand for a community who play off meta decks with like minded people. If you get it going, the site might even be able to sticky or add a post around it.

    posted a message on Honestly I don't understand why people play this game anymore.
    Quote from Sherman1986 >>

    The main reason is because there aren't many good casual multiplayer games out there, with proper support and a huge playerbase like Hearthstone. Not too hard to figure out, to be honest.

     There are loads of multiplayer games you can play casually? Absolutely loads.

    posted a message on Honestly I don't understand why people play this game anymore.

    Like, make a thread and ask just how many decks people think they've played over the last 2 years, I'd be stunned if anybody replied with "one". I don't actually think you genuinely believe large parts of the player base do that. 

    Maybe next time, post in the salt thread, that's where your op belongs. It isn't trying to get genuine discussion going, it's not an honest question, you haven't considered anybody else's pov, it's not a constructive thread. It's a tantrum and there's a thread for the people who need to tantrum already.
