    Ah I remember that last one from when Hearthstone was first out. Yeah, it was definitely one of the better ones.
    The cosplay adverts are definitely very cringey - and that first one, I don't even... Heh! :-) 

    That looks like Rosario Dawson in that Brain advert one.

    In regard to your question about implementing a system for the 7-day rule, that would likely require some significant dev-time to create, which I am afraid is not a high priority for the Development Team at this time.

    Hi LizardPool

    Yes, this user is a known scammer and is on the blacklist. 
    As such, we deal with the scam posts (and his new accounts) as quickly as we can. But since we can't be actively watching the Quest Thread on a regular basis, this is why we require the help of fellow forumites such as yourself to report blacklisted scammers when they attempt their scams again. Thank you for this.

    For your own forum safety and peace of mind, however, it is best not to highlight these in the public forum space, as the report system is anonymous and saves you any unwanted attention from the scammer (and also prevents pile-on from other forum users, which is not what this forum is for).

    I'll move this to the relevant forum for contacting the moderators here for this reason. 

    Cheers!
    Scorpyon

    Please enlighten me, oh wise ones. How do they do it?

    It probably depends on what you (and others) define as what being "rigged" means, since people will likely have differing versions / opinions on that.

    It might not class as being "rigged" in the detrimental sense, but the game certainly has (as Blizzard has made clear) specific algorithms for how it pairs up players.

    Gotta love the moderation on this site, lets discourage all legitimate discussion, lets ban and silence any voice we don't like.  I especially love the way the moderator calls blizzards position consensus. 

    Not to point out the blindingly obvious, but I neither banned nor silenced the OP or his post. So that's one fallacy.

    Secondly, if you actually read what I wrote, I explained that the topic had been argued to death with the implication of that statement being here on these forums, and therefore the "general consensus" was that of the forum community, rather than Blizzard. 

    So... you might want to reconsider your comment.

    posted a message on Many Ropes in Wild.

    This topic has been argued to death, many times, and the general consensus has been that the way it works currently is the best overall for a compromise to both sides.

    If a player is AFK or lets the rope time out on one turn, then the following turn will already start with the rope. That mechanic is already in the game.
    However if a player chooses to use the whole of his turn to the full, that's his right and is well within the rules of Hearthstone. Whether it is good sportsmanship is another thing entirely - and not really relevant to the issue at hand.

    posted a message on Is inevitability a good thing?
    Quote from 3nnu1 >>
    Quote from Scorpyon >>

    I think that "inevitability" as a general concept is a little too vague for it to have a concrete yes/no answer to whether it is a good thing. 
    In essence, what do really mean by it?
    And when we apply the concept to a specific situation, are we giving it the appropriate objectivity, or is it tempered with the subjectivity of our opinion on it?

    To be a little less vague in my reply here, I am certain that there are times when you face a matchup which appears to have a foregone conclusion that we consider to be an inevitable outcome (assuming that is the sort of thing you are alluding to) - and let's assume for a moment, that this is indeed the case and we put aside the possibility of variance and fortune (and skill perhaps) - well then you are left with an assured outcome that might be negative for you at this moment, but the flip side of this is that there will also be times when you are the assured victor. 
    Now, objectively that might seem like this takes the fun and skill out of the game - but that's because we are looking at it from a flawed premise where we have started with that assertion and hence why we reach it.

    Long-winded answer short, I think hard inevitability is detrimental in some amount, but the nature of variance and differing outcome means that the likelihood of that sort of inevitability actually happening is pretty low overall, so shouldn't really have a heavy impact on anything.

     Bro, this game has been reduced to rock paper scissors with the outcome largely determined by turn 4. You have your head in the sand.

     

    This game has been a Rock-Paper-Scissors methodology since it was released in Beta. Where have you been?
    That doesn't effect any of what I said, nor the OPs point about inevitability of outcome.
