I've been playing Hearthstone for nearly 6 years. In that time it has become probably one of my favourite games of all time, right alongside Street Fighter II Champion Edition and Tekken (very different games I know!). Over the years I've spent a lot of money on this game, probably close to or even more than $3,000 to date. I'm definitely in the whale category.
So why am I making this thread? What's the point? Well, I honestly don't know. I suppose this is one of those 'I'm outta here' threads so I fully expect the customary 'don't let the door hit you on your way out' or 'who are you again' replies below.
But I do genuinely think that I am done with Hearthstone. The game just doesn't excite me anymore. I mainly play constructed and have zero interest in Arena or Duels. BG's is OK but not something I really enjoy. Constructed has become unfun for me. I am good enough at the game to know how many misplays I make during a normal ladder game and I just don't have the time to play enough to 'git gud'. Hearthstone has become a frustration for me and the frustration now outweighs the enjoyment I used to get from the game.
More than that, constructed has started to feel very samey to me regardless of what cards are in rotation. The classes seem to play the same way they always have, doing the same things with new cards.
I've always said that I'll stop playing when the game is no longer enjoyable and I think that time has finally arrived. I am lucky enough to have disposable income to spend as much as I like on the game so money isn't the issue. It's just that spending upwards of $500 a year on something you no longer enjoy makes no sense. It's a shame because I have a great collection including tons of golden legendaries from the times before Standard. Plus I'm sitting on about 120k gold and over 12k dust. I guess my account will stay like that, frozen in time, waiting for me to log back in again one day. Maybe I’ll get a good welcome back deck when / if I do!
The e sports side of HS is something I've always enjoyed and I will probably keep following it at least in the short term.
Anyway, I just felt that I should write this seeing as I've visited Hearthpwn every single day for nearly 6 years. I'm not bashing HS in any way and I have zero interest in trying another online card game.
I've enjoyed being a small part of the forum and wish you all the best of luck with your future pack openings. And may the RNGods be kind to you.
Take it easy, peace.
