TL;DR - Another control player mad at actually having to play the game.
Solitaire is --------> that way.
I predict a mass exodus of dog shit players once Baku is gone. Game is hard when you actually have to play it and can’t hero power your way through.
The game is slower than it's ever been. I love playing, but I can't stomach sitting for another 35+ minutes watching a Warrior tank up and board clear. It's the most oppressive deck ever, and unless you're playing OTK, you're automatically in a 30/70 polarized matchup. Seriously, I have HS Premium and I'd be happy to send anyone the matchup winrates for Odd Warrior. They are in the green across the board except for OTK decks and Deathrattle Hunter.
As i said in a previous topic, i've beaten a lot of them in Legend with my Odd control warrior with dragons package.
You have ton of removals, also tech in Lerooy jenkins, thinkmaster and marsh drake. Not only they can be used as removal (marsh drake is op with collider) but you make their pool totally crap.
Only pay attention to not put down direhorns or any other high hp (above 4) in late game because they steal it and combo.
Beating anything with Odd Warrior is nothing to brag about. You mashed your hero power for 35 minutes a game, that's about it.
Because people are tired of 50 armor Warriors. Odd Warrior is singlehandedly locking two entire archetypes - aggro and midrange - from playing the game. What, you think all those people went and crafted warrior? No, they're the endless OTK decks you're seeing. The rise of OTK can be solely laid at the feet of Odd Warrior and Big Spell Mage.
This is. There has never before been a meta where there are so many viable decks whose entire point is to try to avoid actually having to play the game.
Go through all T1-T4 decks and add up how many stall decks there are. It's disgusting. For not liking non-interactive decks, Blizzard have surely created plenty.
I'm not going to miss any cards. I plan to furiously masturbate as I dust them all. The whole KOFT and K&C sets should have never happened and I'm happy to erase them from my memory.
The worst thing Blizzard ever did with hearthstone is telling neckbeards that their Wallet Control decks took any semblance of skill.
Control isn't playing the game skillfully. Control is doing everything you can to avoid having to play the game because you suck at it. So your armor up, throw up your taunts and use all your board clears, and yeah after 35 mins of playing solitaire, you win, but you won by actively NOT playing hearthstone. Hearthstone is about smart trades, setting up strong boards, thinking ahead on how to get your opponents health from 30 to zero, you know, the actual way to win the game? Control helps people completely avoid that.
I was climbing faster when conceding, but now that the deck is the flavor of the month and is every second match up, its more fun just not to play.
