    posted a message on Patch notes released

    Huge pig nerf in battlegrounds. Good. I love the way they play , but it was a requirment to either go pure pig or pig based menagerie to play BGss lately- and forcing stuff that every other player is trying to force is way too RNG heavy.

    Also nice to see Shaman in construtcted get some love, hopefully enough to have some kind of impact but who knows?.. and the crabrider nerf. Good job Blizzard.

    posted a message on Less nerfing, more learning people.

    I am one who likes buffs and nerfs, more the better IMO, I like the change-ups. I will say that some people are just gob-smackingly bad at the game, which is where much of the salt comes from. We're are not all equal  here, not even close. Imagine netdecking or watching a streamer with a tier 1/2 deck, spending some RL money on crafting it, and then still only getting a 45% winrate, once you hit a certain rank.

    At that point your ego is stood there with it's pants down, balls flapping in the wind, and it needs protecting. So that is what your brain does.

    Nerf Crabrider, bring back watchposts...somehow... Buf caravans. Do SOMETHING about paladin.

     

    BGs is a bacon factory right now, not sure what they will do, I guess they kinda wanted it that way, new content and all.

    Be careful buying from IOS.

    It states £3.99 initially but then confirms £4.99 on the payment screen.

    Unfortunately my fingers were quicker than my brain.

    Never ever ever buy from IOS - it’s on average 20% more expensive compared to logging in from a browser window and purchasing the same thing due to Apple’s cut etc

     Stop buying Apple products. Google are no angels, but there is really no comparison...get an android phone/tablet next time.

    I'd fire up some different games, when you fix your tv. Multiplayer games are tilting by nature. AAA SIngleplayer story driven games like those Sony make are considerably less frustrating, spectacular and entertaining in a different way.

    If money is an issue, well ps4 is pretty old and the games are cheap - Uncharted series, Control, God of War, Last of Us, Horizon, etc.

    posted a message on New quillboars.

    The high roll with these is so ridiculous everyone has to play them, which reduces the chance of you actually getting them, but there are always one or two players that get the premium 5 and sometimes 6 tier pigs relatively early, and they skyrocket fast. You can easily crush first place when in last by just having a pig power turn. There is very little skill in the game right now, once you have MMR that matches you with people who already know how best to play with the new mechanics (blood gems).

    The way they play is cool, and APM intensive, though probably not as much as pirates. But being blown out early in a game by one who hit their pig power turn purely through tavern RNG happens a lot, and that sucks.

    posted a message on Barrens - This meta has issues, but I really enjoy it. Do you?

    I feel like Blizzard intended this to be watchpost meta, and they're missing, so on the whole the meta feels like it is missing something. I don't think it's bad overall but paladin is a bit problematic.

    posted a message on Watch posts viability in current meta
    Quote from HatShapedHat >>

    I'll bump this thread to show some watch post love in hopes Blizz reverts the nerfs one day.  

    They were really cool, fun and unique cards which didn't have enough time to shine IMO

     Very much agree. They created interesting board states and decisions based on the current moment of the game and the value/risk/reward in trading/using removal against them. They were viable defensive tools that were neutral! I'd have them back in a heartbeat, even in the paladin heavy meta, playing against a watchpost paladin was interesting...dynamic. What we're left with is the randomness of oh my yogg every match...it can be fun in the way RNG is, but it's not the same.

    Blizzard went way too early with the watchpost nerf, and too hard. Instead we're left with a lot of paladins that just aim to kill you on turn 5 or 6, instead of a cool midrange meta. The lunacy nerf had to happen, that card was stupid as hell IMO. But I want to see the game with posts driving the meta.

    posted a message on How are Paladins still being left in their current state?

    Little talk here about librams, are librams are ok? The libram package is the one I find the most annoying in paladin, by far. I enjoy playing against secrets, mage, paladin, hunter, rogue whatever...they just create interesting decisions and feel interactive. And the bottom line is without severe help paladin secrets will never see play - cards like mysterious challenger and sword of the fallen need to be in the game every once in while.

    Never want to go back to a hero card meta. Ever. Infinite-value-stone is not a game I ever want to go back to.

    posted a message on Please, we need this card to be dead
    Quote from Tommykoppo >>

    Well maby a card just fits perfectly in everykind of deck of this game, either aggro, midrange or control with an insane winrate, it can either destroy a minion, heal o deal EIGHT damage to face and eventhough leaves an 8/8 in field needs to be considered as extremelly opresive 

     Should have started with this in your OP, atleast then your post has some kind of argument to it, rather than just being salt thread material. And maybe you have a point? I dunno, 9 mana isn't cheap but it is neutral burst that bypasses taunts. The 8/8 body seems kind of irrevelvant.

    It is the only old school remade dragon that I see when on ladder, it does seem quite common.

    posted a message on How would you nerf oh my yogg?

    This already had an indirect nerf through the sword being hit. I say hit the librams, not secrets again. Counterspell can be played around, so can this. It creates intersting decisions regarding whether you can afford to try and play around it or whether you have to gamble. Like Watchposts - and they nerfed those too, which was a shame. Cards that create interesting game states like Oh My Yogg are what this game needs...not endless, skilless value generation from librams.

    posted a message on Is Paladin too strong?

    LIbrams allow continual mana cheating. Secrets in comparison are suprisingly fair - they tend to result in power turns that some people don't like, but if you can answer on said power turn, they blow through their resources very quickly.

    Librams are different, and to give you an idea of how busted they are consider the 5/3 lifesteal libram weapon that no one runs - this could cost 1 mana....a 5/3 lifesteal 1 mana weapon ..and it doesn't make the cut. They remind me a bit of jades...just continual benefit for doing the simple play over and over and over and eventually your opponents resistance crumbles.

    It annoys me no end that watchposts got nerfed, which were useful neutral midrange tools and libram paladin is untouched, possibly to some extent because librams + watchposts was as busted as anything...but Librams remain and still are busted. And boring.
