    posted a message on Will you be playing Battlegrounds in the long run?

    I am not sure, haven't played a lot yet, but I think I'll stick with ranked for the most part. Battlegrounds seems to be even more RNG, if you get good minions offered you win, otherwise you get destroyed. I know there is some strategic decisions, but as of now it is little more than a glorified Mass Hysteria simulator to me.

    posted a message on How to counter Mech Resurrect Paladin?

    I'd say Priest is the way to go. Mass dispell can really screw mummy paladin, and the other day I played against a priest with kabal shadow priest and seance, who kept on stealing my eggs.

    posted a message on How was your Pack opening?

    After the abysmal RoS opening I had some better luck this time. 173 packs, all commons, all but one rare, 40 epics (six of which were double) and 11 legendaries, two of which were golden. And about 6000 dust.

    posted a message on New Neutral Legendary Card - King Phaoris

    I voted bad. I think the card is to expensive, too conditional and to weakly statted to see play. Sure, a full board of big minions sounds tempting, but how is anyone reliably going to be able to survive until turn 10 with enough big spells and this guy in hand to even play it? Not to mention the inevitable boardclear the turn after. Filler legendary and Conjurer's calling nerf, IMO.

    Or you are looking under neutral cards, but Venomizer is a Hunter Class card?

    posted a message on Masters Tour Las Vegas, with Free Packs!

    Giving out free stuff for said dice roll simulator is hardly forcing anyone to do anything.

    And I am wondering what you are even doing here? Apparently you don't like the game, but still you comment on them giving out stuff because the minuscule requirement of having a background tab open in your browser is too much for you? 

    And then people wonder why the world is going to sh*t. SMH.

    posted a message on Shaman

    I play an overload control shaman, enough staying power to challenge the board early with Thunderhead and Unbound Elemental, some board clears, and Walking Fountain with some buffs to seal the deal. Works quite well for me.

    posted a message on What your opinion on the Dalaran Heist?

    I personally like it. It is far from perfect, but a nice addition to the game. 

    Sure, it is not that different from previous solo content, but the new features and twists distiguish it enough to not make it feel the same as dungeon or rumble run, though they are obviously similar. But with the bar encounters to edit your deck, completely random decks (which can backfire hard or sometimes be completely OP), and my personal favorite, the anomaly mode, no run feels like the previous one. 

    I find it challanging without being to frustrating. Normal mode is fairly straight forward, heroic can feel kind of unfair at times, but in both directions. Sometimes you just stomp the AI, sometimes you get stomped, but on average I do feel like my decisions matter. 

    The fact that you can pause mid game and just return later is a huge added bonus as well. 

    There are some issues, and the overall polish of the game leaves something to be desired, and there are no excuses for that, but considering the buggy state in which many tripple A titles are released, that just seems to be how games are produced these days. 

    I've definitely gotten my money's worth so far, spending probably 10+ hours on it, and I at least will finish normal mode with all classes. To me it is a nice relaxing option when I don't feel like playing ranked. 

    Lastly, I think Dalaran Heist is a good option for new players to familiarize themselves with cards and mechanics, plus, Zayle gives them a glimpse into (semi-expensive) competitive Hearthstone decks. For the gold or money investment a new player does not just get the single player experience, but the option to play against other people, and thus a better idea of whether or not it is worth to him/her to spend more money to build a larger collection.

    posted a message on When do you rope an opponent?

    I rope when I play on mobile and get a phone call. Or if I have a disconnect. Or if there is something else I am doing on the side. I don't always pay full attention, and so I accidentally sometimes rope being distracted.

    posted a message on Literally nobody uses original decks whether it's casual or ranked (If any, it's like less than 5%)

    I guess the reason is this:

    You create a brand new deck, original AF, start playing.

    You lose. You lose again. And again.

    Even if you don't go to netdeck immediately, you do see what other people play. And built a deck after their example. And maybe win a game or two. 

    And the next guy who plays you thinks you're just netdecking, even if all you did was just recreating the deck you lost over and over against from memory.

    posted a message on All Classic Legendaries!!

    It might still make sense to hold on to the classic packs unopened, just to increase the chance of getting any new cards added as replacement for the HoF'ed ones.

    posted a message on The RoS adventure is far worse value than buying packs

    What this comes down to is this: Is the solo playing experience worth the gold or money to you or not. 

    And this question everyone has to answer for themselves. 

    That you'll get fewer packs compared to buying them directly from the store is obvious.

    posted a message on Elysiana is part of the issue right now

    I haven't seen her played in weeks. If you want to complain about random card generation, there are plenty of other cards that do just that, Elysianna does not stand out in that regard, other than she is a super late game card. Does it matter if you are killed through her or some randomly generated pyroblast? I don't think so. These mechanics are just part of the game.
