    People are gonna get real sick of Deck of Lunacy real fast ... if it isn't already happening.

    We've had truly random deck replacement cards in the past, but this is the first one we've had that that seems to push you over the 50% chance to win threshold. All the previous ones were kinda just there for memes and fun.

    It summons a mininon with a cost of 1 less, so, if say you attack with a 3-drop its possible you already drew all your decks 2drops and nothing happens.

    posted a message on Most frustrating early expansion ladder ever...

    You used to get a few days of fun at expansion launch, its more like a few hrs these days. Hell, reddit stickies a list of deck for people to play at the top of the sub before the launch has even happened, and within a few hours the list of decks is extensive.

    I wish there was some kind of internal system that punished you for playing popular decks/cards...some kind of handicap/anti-meta system.

    Ultimately, this is why BGs and arena are more fun, and more rewarding to play.

    posted a message on Has Blizzard lost control of your card collection?

    The collection manager at this point is a convoluted joke, I'll give you that.

    Its always been bad, searching using it just doesn't work well at all, some of it is counter-intuitive, its hard to to seacrh for cards the synergise with each other because values and keywords are all over the place, and seacrhing multiple terms often just break the search completely. Its...well, it is garbage, frankly.

    posted a message on State of BG

    Removing cards prizes was fine, but they also removed the likes of Zerus..the game feels a bit stale.

    It's highlighted my main issue with the mode - the first few turns you have no freedom. See a sellemental or token on 1, you must buy. on 6 gold you can't roll, you must buy whatever shit is in tavern, level after that and again buy whatever shit is in tavern, then you must go to four asap, sometimes a turn early but you need to be on 4 so you can tripple into a 5 if you get a tripple.

    Tavern tiers 1 to 3 become irrrelevant, unless playing a hero like Arianna. When you hit that tripple on 4 you get either a baron or a nomi or a brann or Hoggar or lightfang...or hell even a Mythrax or Razorgore you can finally start to actually play the game.

    The mode is becoming played out, it needs more complexity. Badly. I don't really mean Prizes back, that is just more power spikes. I'm talking more tavern tiers. I'm talking more health for the heroes. I'm talking more cool minions with cool effects. I'm talking making the endgame more than just stats vs poisonous vs divine shields. Blizzard will look at the numbers and think "people are still loving playing, we shouldn't change it up too much" but this would be a mistake - they need to be brave and innovate.

     Yeah...small indie company...:) 

     This meme is getting so old, it's embarrassing, please stop.

    Op, this is most likely a balance matter.

     Are we really going to let this slide...a balance issue?

    Do thematics not matter at all? Ok in that case from now on Holy Wrath and Holy Fire are ICE CREAM SANDWICH spells.

    Honestly, IMO Blizzard has been really pathetic on this. I never evcen considered they would mislabel spells so badly, to the point of it being stuipid even having spell types at all. This was an oppotunity to add flavour to the game that actually made sense. Seriously if you can't make the spells fit better into categories than this don't fucking bother and leave it as it is.

     

    ...I actually can't believe they messed this up. It seemed so simple.

     Your language and tone is just ridiculously over the top, given what we're discussing. 

    It seems impossible to discuss this game with a majority of the community because you have to go in SO hard on blowing up what are minor issues in the bigger picture.

    This place doesn't half get incredibly dramatic about tiny things. Must be nice to have so few actual life problems that it can afford to be such a huge deal.

    Like, it's a game, can people just take it a little less seriously? You all act like this is actual life stuff, which plenty of other people are far too affected by to be sitting online and complaining about a few spell schools.... Its funny how it's always the people who hate the game and claim Blizzard are awful etc that seem so damned passionate about it. I've had people call me a fan boy and all sorts, nah mate, I just don't get that bothered about superficial little things in mobile games. I accept that people are fallible and that ultimately, if I don't enjoy my time with the game or don't like the direction it's going, I'm free to do absolutely anything else with my time. 

    Any reason it's got you typing in bold, swearing and ranting? Like, really? Can you not express yourself in a slightly calmer, more reasonable manner? You're swearing and calling people pathetic.

    As for the OP, I'd imagine it has to do with certain interactions such as 'when you play X card, do Y' and certain combinations etc might be an issue. 

     Where as you get worked up by people talking about said games in a online forum, and start complaining about the complaining? I bring a little fire and salt to my posts on hearthpwn usually. Don't get your panties in such a twist, it's not like it was directed at you.

    The change was made to improve thematics. On that basis having a spell like Holy Wrath not in the Holy set of spells isn't great. Its one of many possible examples, there are loads, open up your card collection and look. My reaction remains the same, why fucking bother if they can't get it more right than this?

     Nah he was right.. you're acting wild for no reason. Kind of seems attention seeking imo. Odd way to act over something so small. "This is how I post here" doesn't give you a pass to freak the fuck out and expect no pushback lol really?

    I never said that - Feel free to pushback all you like. Thematics matter to me in card games, like the art matters. For some it is irrelevant, I get that, they only care about power levels, balance and competing. I am not one of them and its obviously easier to do a better job with this change than they have, which is piss-poor IMO.

    Most alchoholics would accept the fault lies with their lack of restraint, I'm sure you'd find some that would advocate the banning of alchohol..but very few. If you're spending too much much on hearthstone and you know it just stop...set yourself a limit this expansion and stick to it. You know what you are doing going into the store after you've just opened like a hundred packs or whatever...don't do it. It's little flashing lights on a screen, we aren't talking about crack here.

    posted a message on Classic Format Live Today - The Hottest Decks To Start With

    Hey if it's dead in 2 weeks its still more of a success than Duels!!

    Blizzard if you are reading this, you need to go back and look at the arena/sealed format again. As you seem to have overlooked it, and are rejogging other modes instead, like dungeon runs (which were great, for a while atleast) with Duels, which was a terrible idea, or Oldschool hearthstone with classic, which is only slightly better...

    Yes I know it is hard to monetize - but it is the mode that rewards skill over all the others, you can't just netdeck you way to victory, or pay2win. The power level of the decks doesn't just create "I win" situations all the time, atleast not in the first few turns. The only reason its not more popular is your rewards structure punishes people learnin the mode, and the entry barrier is rather high in the first place. The gamplay is satisfying, and crucially, more fair, especially over mutliple runs.

    Do something spicey with a new sealed format, that rewards skill, not random OP BS like Duels, or netdecking, like cosntructed/classic.

    I suddenly got all the 1000win golden portraits, which was nice lol. Even for priest which I have at most 300 wins with.

    Edit - I guess it's possible I got the wins in arena. 700+wins with priest though in arena..i dunno, I went through a phase of playing a fair bit of of arena but that seems super unlikely to me.

    I do not understand the nerf to shaman hero power. its not a huge deal or anything but was anyone asking for that? Not to mention there have been a few class shaman cards from older sets that "require spell damage". Just seems a bit strange to me.

    Yay for more deck slots, at last!

    BGs update seems rather small, hope they have bigger changes in the pipeline.

    posted a message on This shows how BS Big Priest is.

    Its the most reliable mana cheating deck in the game, and mana cheating has reliably been the most unfair strategy. The res mechanic in hearthstone is bonkers, and such an easy fix. Instead we get 'nerfs' like barnes, where the ruin a fun card to save a degenerative way of playing. It makes no sense to me. Those who enjoy playing it should be just as happy playing hyper-aggro, it plays almost the same way but upside down, by high rolling off mulligan and simply removing the ability of the opponent to play the game.
