    posted a message on What’s your lvl on new progress system?

    Just stop with the "please Blizzard, whip us harder" - like the rate of progress isn't entirely adjustable. If most people are a couple of thousand gold up (and I suspect they will be by the time the next expansion hits) Blizzard will analyse the effect on pre-orders and react accordingly. It might be that with more gold available people feel more positive about the game and place more pre-orders..somewhat counter-intuitively.

    Usually give people the final blow, unless I'm tilting because i'm on a bad loosing streak or whatever. If they want to BM a bit before killing me, thats fine, winners privilege, as long a they don't rope me as well.

    posted a message on WITH SOURCE: New Rogue Hero skin confirmed for 2021

    I like the idea of LGBT skins, but not when they are reducing the sex appeal/fan-service, death and violence in cards for china/western hand-wringers/ whoever.. Pander to every demographic or none at all. Equal opportunities and all that.

    Imagine having a hearthstone is a few years where obviously LGBT characters are applauded and promoted, but a little bit of bone structure, gore or cleavage is deeply frowned upon(atleast by blizzard), because I think we are nearly there. Fuck that.

    posted a message on Tickatus is good or bad for this game because...

    I've always liked cards that shaft the opponent. I used to love Dirty Rat. Maybe Tickatus is a little over-tuned? I don't know, my opinion in biased, I like him, and have a long standing hatred of combo druids and such that do nothing all game but armor up  draw draw draw , until malygos. I liked combo decks that actually interacted with the board and required some maths, like patron warrior...from the hand combo dump OTKs have always pissed me off.

    They'll keep slowly updating it just like they're doing with WoW.
    Eventually we'll move onto Naxx, Gvg, BRM and so on.

    For now this is fine. But yes, people will quickly get bored of it.
    Also, Unleash will be 3 mana, not 2.

     

    If WoW released today, nobody would play it. It is far too basic for min-maxing capabilities of modern players. What made Classic WoW successful was in big part was the nostalgia of playing with old friends and in small part was the utter failure of BFA. None of that is true for HS, there is no social aspect to HS and modern HS expansion have more creative cards than older ones. 

    As someone who didn't play classic (I started during GvG), I don't think I will be playing the Classic format for more than 1 month at most. 

    What do you expect from a dumbed down version of Everquest? Hell they even stole the murlocs.

     I miss playing Everquest. That was without doubt the best MMORPG ever created.

     No. Daoc was way better.

     For PvP, yeah.

    But for guild and character progression, raid content, lore, world building, quests...pretty much everything else....Everquest.

    posted a message on What Should I Do With My Collection?

    At no point since launch has dusting anything but duplicates and golden cards been worth it - with the exception of nerfs.

    The only winner when you dust even seemingly usless cards is Blizzard, as the return rate is so poor. You gain so little that it really isn't worth it, and due to to the nature of the game with its card rotations and all, all the most 'wealthy' F2P players have hoarded their collections from the start, and are sat on piles of gold and dust.

    Those who naively climbed aboard the dust-craft-dust-craft train to create their perfect meta decks are the ones who have got more and more upset with the game overtime (and often quit, with salty posts on here). You've never needed perfect decks to climb with, and over reliance on deck lists, and failure to understand substitutions and shifting with the meta to get ahead of the widely shared lists and streamer decks, and also what makes certain decks tick and what is less vital makes for worse players as well.

    Deck thinning and tempo. I really hated that little bastard, Pirate warrior ruined this game for months.

    posted a message on Is there a reason to put any card that cost more than 4 in todays meta?

    I agree with the sentiment of the post but it's well past being fixable at this point.

    What they should have done over time is reduce the power level of 1 and 2 drops, removed the ability to mana cheat almost completely and tried to recreate a hearthstone game state where powerful standalone cards of over 5 were playable, as it was in the past - Sylvanas, Ragnaros, Dr Boom, Tirion, etc.

    Believe it or not 'curvestone' is actually how this game functions best, where board clears work and the game is by and large interactive between the two players.

    Instead, the greed of Blizzard to hype expansions and sell packs in the short term, and crucially, peoples massive complaints anytime we get a weaker set has given us the game we have today - Cards of 1 to 4 mana exist...some 5 mana cards exist....anything over 5, well, you better be something extra spicey/swingy and game effecting immediately on play or you do not exist. Unless of course its possible to cheat them out. As if mana cheating is a solution, and not compeltely unfair, unfun and often uninteractive.

    Quote from Shadowrisen >>

    If by one page you mean 5 posts, two of which were mine and responding to criticism I did not initiate, sure, I guess that's worth a warning.

    Every other post I have made is primarily devoted to the Tickatus topic.  But, to be honest, what more needs be said on the topic?  We've had multiple people come and tell us that statistics aren't contributing to the discussion, so what else are we supposed to do?

    I guess I can be as subjective as everyone else.  I can beat Tickatus with warrior and priest an acceptable amount of the time, therefore you should be able to also.  Am I doing it right?  I don't know what else there is to offer, as people aren't open to anything that contradicts an accepted premise.

    EDIT: @ Psy, I take your latest post to mean you are refusing my offer, as now any pic of the person in question is apparently too inflammatory for people to control themselves.  In which case I have no idea why you bothered to critique the individual pic, as that seems now to be a complete red herring.  But if I'm incorrect in my interpretation, the offer stands.

     I dunno man, do you really want me to find you another Trump avatar? I encourage you to change it yourself (idealy to something other than Trump) but I don't care that much... you are the one who said before I even posted anything that people just ignore your posts and can't see past the avatar. You can project your political inclinations and bait people or you can talk hearthstone, sometimes both, but that will depend on the reader.

    Well, as I said, the guy is inherently inflammatory. Its pretty predictable some people will give you shit over Trump avatar, given what he represents. There was a guy on these forums a while back who used a Bald Eagle as his avatar with some shitty, borderline fascist line in his sig, he got given shit too (not by me), and no one could take his posts seriously. He used to derail threads too, even when he was trying to stay on topic.

    If you are set on using a pic of Trump I would atleast suggest changing it to one which doesn't look like he is in the middle of telling the press to 'fuck off' or similar. It just makes the following post feel more antagonistic.

    I didn't use Vicious Syndicate to prove anything.  The person I was speaking to held VS out as the place to get stats, so I responded in kind.  Consequently, I'm not assuming "my own" facts.  I'm assuming VS's facts.

    It helps to not just take one post out of context and actually follow a conversation.  But, I know you're here for other reasons.  You can't even be bothered to use complete sentences when you aren't talking about Trump.  Speaking of which, regardless of feelings for or against any politician, I have a far better grasp of the language than Trump.

    And don't worry Selina, he's been up at arms about my avatar for over a year now.  He's not the only one, though he ranks among the most persistent.  Trump will be dead and in the ground and that sort of response will still be coming.

    In a more general sense, it is instructive to watch the moving goal posts as this thread has progressed.  At first, there were claims made about win rates and played rates on ladder.  4 pages later, win rates and played rates are arbitrary "snapshots in time".  The translation is clear (which is surprising, given the terrible English used):  No evidence, regardless of source, can be used to refute the point at hand.  Anything which seems to completely make a lie of the central premise is "arbitrary" or "assuming [my] own facts".  Something, something Trump.

    If I were interested in the political argument, I could certainly draw a few similarities between certain politicians and the above way of thinking, but since this thread is supposedly referring to a card game, I shall refrain.  It's just another subjective evaluation as to whether such things are compliments or curses, anyway. 

     

    On another note, anyone work in debt collection?  Had a wonderful experience with an abusive consumer trying to refinance a mortgage, and it reminded me how good life can be.  Just curious if there are similar experiences out there.

     You turned this into a thread about you and you stupid avatar. Mods should change it, the guy's picture is so inflammatory it derails threads whether you want that to happen or not.
