    Just give xp based on cards played, attacks made etc. Long games would still count more than short games but it wouldn’t favour ropers.

    posted a message on Hearthstone or the community?

    I’m a bit of a lone wolf so I’m picking Hearthstone.

    I will say that I’ve been a member of this forum for over five years and I experience a sense of community when seeing familiar names etc.

    Fair enough. Not having polkelt in this particular matchup is somewhat problematic because you want your combo fast.

    Psychic scream is used to set them back two turns. That's why polkelt is so important. It literally gives you everything you need and buys you the time to kill them before they can kill you.

    The deck is definitely unfair. But of all the unfair things you could be doing in wild, there are worse things than doing big priest shenanigans.

    I’m probably biased because I tend to play the decks that do well against big priest. I like my otk decks and I know how to maximize my chances piloting aggressive decks. I play at 11 stars and whatever decks big priest is beating, I’m not seeing those decks played at all. I don’t see how big priest is a tier 1 deck with how it stacks up against the rest of the field.

    As for the big priest vs. raza priest matchup; even if you don’t draw dk anduin, you still have polkelt and psychic scream. It takes a lot of bad luck to lose that matchup imo.

    It's a good deck but far from broken. It's slow and fair compared to real powerhouse decks like Secret Mage and Raza Priest.

    It doesn't help that really aggressive decks can reliably beat you (Big Priest is only a slight favorite). Also there's Counterspell and Oh My Yogg! A good player often only needs to disrupt ONE crucial play against Big Priest to win the game. OTK decks also beat Big Priest.

    What decks is Big Priest dominating? Only bad decks.

    I put Big Priest at the bottom of tier 2.

    posted a message on It will finally happen! Changes incoming

    Any positive change is great. I still prefer the old system but that’s just my preference. I liked the simplicity.

    I fall in the middle of this never ending debate. I used to make purchases but stopped buying in 2017 (with the exception of the welcome bundle). I spent quite a bit of money on the game between 2015 and 2017. Mostly preorders, but I also treated myself to a stack of 60 packs every three or four months. To give an idea what type of customer I am.

    Anyway, Blizzard is a business and you shouldn’t attack them for employing strategies that are proven to be effective. As a customer you have the choice to buy or decline. That being said, the new system is very obviously designed to take advantage of players who are more easily tempted. Not cool.

    posted a message on Is lvl 50 of Rewards Track in sight :)

    Level 24. I've completed all my quests but I only play 2-3 times a week. For an hour maybe.

    New rewards system is fine imo. However it does feel like more work. Where previously I would grind out a few more games if that meant I could buy a pack during the same HS session. But now I log out as soon as I'm bored or after completing my quests.

    posted a message on Lorekeeper Polkelt bug?

    I suppose you could make the card do a little dance as he's inserted in the deck.

    But imo the wording then should be "A bomb shuffles it's way into your opponent's deck."

    posted a message on Petition to blizzard - Change (buff/unnerf) Tinkmaster Overspark in Hearthstone to cost 5-6 and effect targets.

    Just add Tinkmaster to your deck and believe in the heart of the cards.

    Even with 7 potential targets, it's a 50/50 chance. Either Blizzard wants you to win the game and it'll transform the best possible target into a squirrel, or Blizzard wants you to lose the game and it'll transform their 1/1 into a Devilsaur.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm heading over to the Salt thread to share my thoughts on ZTG programming and how it's being used to keep everyone at a 50% winrate.

    posted a message on New reward system replacing gold

    We'll have to wait and see. It seems likely that this will put f2p players at a massive disadvantage.

    When I started playing 5 years ago I invested a fair bit of money because I love collecting and really wanted to own a lot of (golden) legendaries. I'm also a Wild player, with a little bit of Standard sprinkled in. I've been f2p for over 2 years now. I think I only bought the welcome bundle - that was a good deal.

    Standard has grown on me. I like Scholomance and I like the current metagame. Assuming the pass will make it difficult to keep up as a f2p player, my strategy will be to do exactly what everyone recommends players NOT to do; I will focus on Standard only and cut into my Wild collection to keep up with the metagame. Eventually I will be without much of a collection, at which point I'll quit.

    I like Hearthstone, but I kinda hate it too. My massive collection is keeping me in the game. I must be addicted or overcommitted. I see this as a good path to go down because it leads to only one outcome; quitting. Hopefully I'll have fun with the next couple of expansions as my HS journey inevitably ends because my collection is dwindling down.

    posted a message on RNG strangeness
    Quote from HatShapedHat >>

    How come I never see any threads involving incidents where people have greatly benefited from RNG?  Seems like those incidents are always conveniently forgotten.

    Because we never benefit from RNG. We win through skill but we lose due to bad RNG. If Blizzard wasn't manipulating everything, a lot of us highly skilled players would be undefeated rank 1 legend players.

    posted a message on Issue with Lorekeeper Polkelt?

    The wording is fine. I don't get why there's a misunderstanding. Shuffling cards in your deck literally means shuffling the deck.

    "Add two Soul Shards to your deck (in random positions)" would be the wording you interpreted it as.

    posted a message on My problem with this game....

    My vote goes to Wild mode.

    Players who worry about cost of entry for Wild mode need to remember you don't need ALL the good cards to compete.

    Pick a competitive deck you'd like to play that has reasonable dust value. Craft it, play it. As you gain experience/resources, think of the next deck you'd like to save up for. That's it. This can be done F2P and doesn't take THAT long. Just be patient and learn how to enjoy climbing using just one deck.

    posted a message on AVIANA COMBOS ARE BROKEN IN WILD. TOGGWAGGLE DECKS SHOULD NOT BE IN RANK 10 LEGEND

    The deck is powerful and feels oppressive when they draw the nuts. I've played all sorts of Aviana-Kun decks since MSOG and only Star Aligner Druid was over the top broken.

    10 mana Aviana is a problem for the deck. The deck is terrifying when they Jepetto into Aviana but if they don't they may struggle assembling the full combo in a timely fashion. Can't tutor Innervate. Keeping/saving Innervate may lose you the game because you're down a card or you might lose too much tempo holding on to it.

    If you play a slow control deck, tough rocks pal. Scissors beats paper. Just know that this deck doesn't line up well against the majority of top tier decks, and for that reason doesn't require nerfs.
