    posted a message on Big priest is getting out of hand

    Stats stats stats - when Big Priest is up for discussion these do not matter...

    Hell it could be a teir 4 wild deck I would still want the deck nuked from the game. I have done for years, it's the only deck I feel this way and I am not alone.

    Why? Because gameplay matters and Big Priest not only negates minion battles, it outright punishes players for removing their minions. They are not a combo deck, with lots of stall, they still play minions - you are just not allowed to play your own and trade as normal. It fundamentally ruins hearthstone.

    It's got to the point where nerfing Barnes would actually do almost nothing. That is how bad it's got. Turn 4 Vargoth...what do you do? Short of having them most premium transform removal in the game, you are fucked....because a 2/6 hit the board. It only ges worse from turn 4 onwards.

    Mechanics matter boys.

    Something unappealing about losing the best standard hero power in the game.

    Quote from The_M4Khh >>

    There are other cards higher on the list of being Hall of Famed than Frost Nova

    Leeroy Jenkins , Doomsayer , Acolyte of Pain Mountain Giant

     Doomsayer? Really? What complete asshat wants this card rotated? Cards like this must stay, hearthstone's lifeblood, they create interesting decisions for both players - the opposite of what frost nova does.

    posted a message on I won t buy this expansion!

    Hearthstone has load of potential directions for new content - the devs chose to keep things simple based on how they read the playerbase. Maybe in the future we will see more and more complex cards, but they haven't even scratched the surface for things they could potentially do with new cards and mechanics.

    posted a message on New Hunter Card - Scarlet Webweaver

    Combo enabler potentialy, but will hunter be able to stall the game to make this work? Traditionally...no. Deathrattle hunter combos worked recently thanks to how OP they were and that you could execute in the early and mid-game.

    ...probably a bad card, but can't be sure just yet.

    Seriously Blizzard, where are my trans cards? Patriarchal underepresentation, get woke.

    Joking aside this card has been deliberately uglied, that mouth should be smaller, thats pretty much all it needs. Bliz... your playerbase...largely young, largely male.... no shit? Pander to us please, not people who will never buy your shit.

    posted a message on How did magnetic turn so powerful?

    Ask any long time arena player how powerful Blessing of Kings is and you have your answer for why magnetic mechs are so very strong.

    Deathknights were the only reason they were not strong/broken before.

    posted a message on Big priest this, big priest that...

    It turns the game into a cow clicker, a non-game. Either the big Priest mullis/draws well and hammers you by cheating out massive minions from turn 4 onwards, or does not and sits there and essentially does nothing while you beat on them, then they lose. Neither is fun, at all, for either player ...so god knows why people play this deck?

    I'll take a match against the worst sort of paladin or mage decks you mention any day over a Big priest, even if I'm less likely to win.

    I play since Beta and after all this time Big Priest is STILL the worst designed deck in the game - followed somewhat closely by Jade Druid. Its not about winrates. The moaning about it won't ever stop because the the deck is a critical mass of design failure.

    posted a message on Dalaran Heist is a bummer

    When you are sat on piles of gold the content could have been a lot shitter than it was and I'd still be happy. As it stands, super happy with the first two wings, seems like the best PVE content since Dungeon Run. I've already had about 6hrs fun from them, that's value for me.

    People seriously upvoted this? It's a joke, it's not about 'entitlement' or other BS buzz words. It's just about realism. If a card is improved, undebatably improved, then you have no right to ask for a refund, nor Blizzard provide one. The idea is complete nonsense.

    If you genuinely beleive you deserve dust for BUFFS, take all your future opinions on the game and throw them in the trash, the community here does not want to read another word of your shit.

    posted a message on Game of Thrones is disappointing

    I enjoyed episode 3 and epidoe 5 well enough - I know y'all here were sounding off on them - but I had already accepted they were rushing the show, it was obvious two episodes into the previous season, let alone this one. I accepted Dany's fall to madness, predicted it in fact.

    But after the finale, damn...

    This was a show that built up Stannis' rise and fall over nearly 5 seasons. This last season everything was rushed, but the finale took it to new levels, yet found plenty of time for characters to just stand around in silence, smelling their own farts. The creatoirs forgot how to pace a show and so fell abck on this gimmick, it didn't work. The direction of the plot was fine, but damn, did they mess it up truncating it all. "It wasn't what you said, it was how you said it".

    Real let down for what was once the best thing on TV. GoT should have gone down as a cultural phenomenon for the ages, arguably the highpoint of television itself. They completely blew it. No fault of the actors involved, they did their best :(

      Except Dany would never do this, and was done for the sake of the plot and to be "shocking".

     

     Let's take a look at what Dany has done throughout the show, shall we?

    • Dany threatens to cut off her brother's hands if he hits her again
    • Dany watches without emotion as her older brother (heir to the throne over her) is melted to death by her husband
    • Knowing that the death of her Kahl husband will mean the end of her and her army, Dany sacrifices her unborn child to a witch in a misguided attempt to save him 
    • Thinking all is lost, Dany burns the witch, her semi-dead husband and herself alive, only to survive and get dragons, because magic
    • Dany threatens to raze Qarth when they don't let her in
    • Dany has her Dragons incinerate the Warlock Pyat Pree
    • Dany locks Xaro in his vault to die of starvation
    • Dany burns the slavemasters of Astapor and steals their army of unsullied
    • Dany orders the unsullied to sack astapor and leaves the city ungoverned and in shambles to march to Yunkai
    • Dany sacks the city of Yunkai and leaves the city ungoverned and in shambles to march to Mareen
    • Dany instigates a slave revolt to take Mareen, then crucifies 163 nobles from that city
    • Dany has a great master burned alive and eaten by her dragons as reprisal for Ser Barriston's death
    • Dany gathers all the Dothraki leaders together and burns them alive
    • Dany declares her intent to "return their [slaver's bay] cities to the dirt," but is persuaded to by Tyrion not to do it 
    • Dany burns the entire slavemaster's armada (what about the innocents?!)
    • Dany burns the Tarlys for not bending the knee

    Yes. Dany is was a totally kind a delightful ruler up until season 8 episode 5. If anything is clear, its that the only thing holding her back the entire time from not doing this earlier were here trusted advisers, who are now all dead or untrusted

    I stopped reading after the first two bullets. Viserys was basically Ramsay with platinum blond hair. If you take Dany threatening him or not being sad when he dies as forshadowing that she would commit mass murder, you are deranged. 

     YET DANY STILL NAMED A DRAGON AFTER HIM!!!!!!!!

    Sorry for the capslock but how could people miss that Dany is not right in the head? She falls in love with her rapist, that's the very first thing she does. Really thanks to the creator of that list though.

    People get blinded by beauty, dragons, nice music, badassery, some noble agenda. But that's all intended .Basically Jorah starts the whole thing out of blind love: "If she has Dragons, she can do anything"

    However Dragons are likely only a product of blood magic and the Red Star. There are no gods.  Burn a girl with a wood horse, you get a horse. Well that's the show's take. In the books everything is hidden in cryptic prophecies - which are all like Noah's ark, fictive myths based on real events. 

     Again, having a complicated relationship with an abusive older brother(not being sad after as he dies, but still wanting to honor the person he was with naming) is not foreshadowing madness leading to mass murder. See the hound the hound and his abusive older brother. See Tyrion who actually kills his abusive father! People are really grasping at straws here.

     The Targayen madness was foreshadowed to the nth degree. Hereditary madness, probably product of in-breeding. She could have 'snapped' at any point, and had to be persuaded to be reluctantly merciful on so many occassions. Now all her advisors that might have talked her down are either dead or untrustworthy, while she is pure Targaryen and has divine right, from her point of view.

    I can only assume that those saying her descent makes no sense were hoping, cause we're getting near the end, that is was going to be all love, fluff and bunnies. Wrong, you're watching game of thrones. If you're european you should be well aware of the history of mad kings and queens and the corruption of absolute power, and indeed, the dangers of in breeeding in royalty.
