    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.

    posted a message on Random Value Generation will STILL be a problem in Standard

    Blizzard decided a few years back now, that this was the way they were going to take the game. remember that survey where they were asking people if they liked the archetype "Discover Mage" ...lol. Like many other posting here, I too like RNG cards, but a 1 or 2 mana card snowballing into an insane amount of value doesn't seem right to me. Sometimes resource management used to matter in hearthstone, and it was better for that. Now it seems it never does...ever.

    Can your deck kill some 1/1s?

    Fill their spaghetti graveyard with 1/1s on turn 4.

    And if your answer is that this card is bad and isn't worth a slot in your deck, then res priest isn't as big of a problem as you are indicating it is.

     You missed my point, its not about teching against the deck. Its about accepting that the gameplay is shit and removing it from the game.

     Sorry but someone is giving you solid advice.. If you are not open for that, what is the whole point of this thread? There is a salt thread for whining.

     These kind of tech choices have always been availaible. There is even the demon that summons an entire board of 1/1s. This kind of tech option used to work some of the time against older versions of Big Priest, but overtime the deck, like many wild decks, it has become more powerful, and essentially outstripped its designed anti-tech. The point of my thread is to draw attention to how poorly priest res abilities combine with hearthstones overall mechanics to produce the worst kind of gameplay possible within the game, I would argue within any mode... Blizzard can fix it, if they want to.

    posted a message on Its back again. Now is the time.

    Wild Big/Res Priest should have been nuked from orbit years ago....small nerfs to the likes of barnes over the years are sticking plasters. The whole archetype sucks donkeyballs. Turns the game into a mindless cow-clicker for both players. I get that Blizzard thinks decks of drooling need to be in the game, but you have to control the power level. The power level on res preist has never been in control, its always been there, bubbling under the surface, ready to re-emerge at any point they forget about and print an unthinking card or two, like vargoth...

    This time, now its back in the meta again, and we all get a reminder of how SHIT the gameplay is when its invovled...its time Blizzard, its time... If you can't implement a propper graveyard, becasue your spaghetti code won't allow it, then just do it the old fashioned way - a shotgun, bucket and mop.

    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.
