    Out of interest, if it's a deck that anyone can play like a pro and can beat anything easily... how do you manage to farm them with a "basically instant win"? 
    I didn't say it can beat anything easily, don't put words in my mouth, I just said it takes no skill to be played like a pro plays it, cos it doesn't take any skill at all. Automatic brainless clicking on face with occasional forced trades (taunt or extreme value like idk 1/1 into 4/1 for example). But if it's fun to you or to anyone else whatever... just shared my thoughts in a thread about it.
    As for the only wins, I said that I climb that much only thanks to pirate warriors, not that I win only vs them. I'd climb without them as well but they make me fly trough the ladder with ease, in Wild especially cos of Belchers and such, but in Standard there are couple of decent decks that counter it as well.
    Not sure if it's worse to play Face Warrior and having "remarkably satisfying" moments while at it or writing OK, Sailor :) at the beginning and #MixedMessages at the end of the post.
     Shame you feel the need to be salty about it.
    It's just a deck of cards in a card game. 
    You need to find something you enjoy yourself and not be so upset that others find their own things to enjoy.

    Personally I tend to like decks that involve unpredictability in terms of strategy (rather than RNG).
    As in, things like Secrets, combos, etc. 
    I think that aggro has its place, but it can become a bit monotonous after a while to play, so you just have to mix it up a bit.

    That's interesting. In most MtG tournaments I've been in (and in the old WoW TCG ones back in the day), it was fairly customary to offer a handshake afterwards and say "Thanks for the game" (or something similar.

    Maybe it could be a regional / culture thing? (I'm in the UK)

    Some players are just a-holes. I squelch almost everyone now because the emotes themselves actually just annoy me. They're long over due a change, and what some of us have asked for since it came out of Beta - auto squelch! The option should be to turn it on if you're bothered, not vice versa. 

     I have always supported the notion of a toggleable auto-squelch option, since it was first put forward years back.
    It's such a simple addition, to be honest!

    Aggro players are like Trump-Supporters.... :-P
    *Gasp!*

    Jokes! Jokes! Just kidding! XD
    Everyone knows the real aggro comes from the other side! ;-) Hehehe!

    *Runs and hides*

    It's like the Miracle "Rouge" (sic) and HandLock crisis of 2014 all over again! XD

    Pirate Warrior will get countered (quite easily) soon enough.

    I kind of wish there was a n "Agreed" or similar sort of emote. 
    I sometimes get an opponent saying "Oops!" when they make a mistake, and I want to sort of commiserate / agree with them, but there's no emote that seems to work very well for that. 
    All the other emotes come across as a bit troll-y if I use any of them after a mistake! Heh!

    What combo? And how is that satisfying? If you know that it's a deck that requires no skill or even brain (literally, bot can play it like a pro)... it's not any achievement at all, even if you make Legend you know it has nothing to do with your ability to play well, nor you had to think about what you do at all... cards play themselves (now with Patches even literally), it's too straight forward and it's the same as you'd click randomly with mouse while PC is turned off. 
    What form of satisfaction or fun do you feel is beyond me... I don't even mean this as an offense I just find it unbelievable that human being feels enjoyment while just clicking on one spot on screen just like that without.. meaning. Isn't it better to go watch a movie than to play such a game? 
    Anyways, I'm personally thankful for people playing this, I farm you a lot and it's basically instant win... didn't play much this season tho, Rank 3 Wild, Rank 5 Standard, but I think will be double Legend this season ONLY thanks to so many Pirate Warriors. So from me you have a big thank you! But really, just go play another game instead, I'm sure you'll have more satisfaction than "when you can pull off that damage combo out of the blue".
     *blink* *blink*
    Ok, sailor.... :-)
    Out of interest, if it's a deck that anyone can play like a pro and can beat anything easily... how do you manage to farm them with a "basically instant win"? 
    But not to worry. If you're farming me so easily, you must be getting much gold. I'm happy to be of some help. :-)
    In terms of combo, I was referring to the : Heroic Strike + Mortal Strike + Mortal Strike (+ Arc Reaper) combo, for 21 damage in one turn. That's the satisfying combo, made more so when you have an empty board against a row of your opponent's minions and they are a turn away from lethal.
    That was remarkably satisfying when I pulled that off today, to be honest.

    I'm surprised you want me to go and play another game when I (and other pirate warriors) am so obviously helping you get the only wins you appear to be able to get right now. :-/

    I'm a little surprised we've not started seeing more anti-weapon minions added so far (like the Ooze chappy).

    The weapons aren't the problem at all. It's the cheap and effecient buff cards and Small-Time Buccaneer that are the culprits.

     I dunno about STB.
    I mean, it's definitely a strong card, but not really that much more than some other similar ones such as Mana Wyrm, that Secrets chick, etc.
    Though that's just my opinion, of course.
     It depends on how you look at it. In a vaccuum? It's probably not stronger, no. Taking into account that it's most of the time a flame imp with no drawback that summons a Stonetusk Boar, it's for sure stronger. But it's not the weapons themselves that are the problem, it's the overall insane synergy. Personally I don't think pirate decks are necessarily OP, I'm just against the fact that they are an auto-include in every single aggro and midrange deck for weapon classes.
     Ohhh, you mean with that legendary little pirate that auto summons? 
    Ok, sure - though I think that could be the case with a couple of 1-drop pirates, too of course. maybe that guy needs to be changed perhaps.
    (I forget his name)
    Yeah, I would agree that the synergy is very strong in the deck overall.

    In fairness, from my experiments with this deck, I have to say that the biggest problem I have found with it (in terms of OP strength) is the combination of the Arcanite Reaper and then the next turn 2 x Heroic Strike.

    That's 13 damage for 4 mana. Yikes!

    Throw in a Mortal Strike or 2 to finish the job.

    I allow my opponent the first turn to offer greetings. If they do I return the greeting and squelch. If they don't I squelch on T2. The emote system is idiotic and there's no way to ever know the intent behind any given emote so I see no reason to try interpreting it.

     

     True - the emote system is incredibly limited. From my work on Runescape back in the day, I would imagine that it is in part a way of getting around the laws that govern "free" chat systems (which require age restrictions due to swearing and that sort of thing that can occur).
    By using a fixed emote / chat system that only allows candid responses, it nullifies the requirement for an age restriction and keeps the game open to youngsters.

    I think there is a line that is hard to keep to when it comes to balancing decks that beat others in a circular format (Like RPS, etc).

    And in a card game like this, that's even harder because it will always be nearly impossible to guess what wacky combos and decks people might come up with when you introduce new sets.

    How is it possible to play for weeks and not face a single pirate warrior? I'm facing something like 15% pirate warrior on ladder.

    I played it to rank 5 at the start of MSoG but got bored of it really fast, I usually never play aggro for that exact reason.

     I dunno. RNG I guess? 
    I play a lot in Wild actually - so maybe all the PWs are sticking it out in Standard?
    That might account for it at least partially.
