    posted a message on Let's Get Dr. 6 Nerfed together!

    I like this plan. It's like, we know it's not actually a problem now, but if we band together we can make it a problem! But why stop here? Everyone should also put two copies of Silverback Patriarch in their deck so Blizzard is forced to nerf it. I think we could all make room for Ice Rager too so that Blizzard realizes they goofed when they printed a buffed version of a card that was, let's be honest, already a little too strong.

    posted a message on Justicar Trueheart nerf is needed

    I don't think I'll ever understand these threads. Every so often I'll see a post about how Justicar is broken for Warrior, and I have yet to see any even remotely convincing arguments for why that's the case. They all come down to variations of "It's really unfair how warriors can now stack up 50 armor for only 26 mana over 13 turns. Such bogus." 

    I get the impression that none of the people that complain about it have actually played a warrior with Justicar. A pretty easy way to die when you're being pressured is to spend 6 mana doing nothing. I've died so many times with that card in hand or over the two turns after I play it that I sometimes wonder if it's even worth it.

    posted a message on Will league of Explorers Influence Ranked play?
    Quote from RougeSandwich >>

    Play style is notoriously linear where most decks play on curve, or have very obvious and limited lines of play. Many articles have been written about the issue.

     So in that case I'm assuming you meant to say it's very hard to make an unintentional wrong move. Playing poorly on purpose is quite simple. I see by your edit that you've addressed this issue, but I'd been assuming it wasn't a typo.

    Very hard to make an intentional wrong move? I don't even know what you mean by that.

    posted a message on The Proper Warsong Commander Nerf

    It was explicitly stated that they wanted to avoid restricting design space by having a minion that grants charge, so this change would have fixed very little. Besides, it's not like giving the Patrons charge was the biggest issue anyway.

    posted a message on Freeze Mage vs Secret Paladin vs Dragon Priest in the current meta

    Secret Paladin is probably the best option because it plays the fastest games of the three decks you listed, though both Dragon Priest and Freeze Mage do counter the deck pretty effectively. If control warriors are something you see a lot of though it's not going to be worth your time to play Freeze Mage, since the game will be long and you'll lose anyway. The Meta is becoming more hostile to Secret Paladin but it is still probably the most effective deck to climb with, as you'll just be able to play more games.

    posted a message on How can Hearthstone be considered an e-Sport with so much RNG?

    I'm not sure what definition people want to use for what's required to be an e-sport, but I'm pretty sure "Loads of people watch it, play it, and pump money into it," is probably going to be in there somewhere. Regardless of any bemoaning of random effects people may do there are still tens of thousands of people watching because it's entertaining. This may be a novel concept.

    I can't help but feel like this should have been a poll.

    posted a message on Meta and ranks

    I didn't start paying attention until I hit rank 6 this month. From rank 6-3 I saw about 30% Paladins, with the rest being pretty evenly split between variations of Mage, Druid, and Warrior with a smattering of Priest. Rank 2-Legend I didn't actually see any Secret Paladins. It was almost entirely Druids and Mages with Priests making a resurgence. I've been in Legend for about a week, hovering around rank 200 and seeing pretty much everything besides Rogues.

    posted a message on Odds for getting a legendary? 1 in 40 packs?
    Quote from Fedorio >>

    I just counted my epics. 11 epics in 40 packs

    does that sound about right?

     

    That's a bit above the curve, since usually Epics show up in about 1 out of 5 packs.

    It should even out to about half that, but it is random so it takes a lot of packs to hit the average.

    posted a message on What's wrong with my deck?

    There are probably a lot more spells than you need, meaning you're going to be sitting on your thumbs with a lot of hands when it looks like what you want to be doing is curving out. A lot of the low cost minions don't work all that well in the deck and want you to have a more unified curve. See if you can identify which cards have felt like they aren't pulling their weight and go from there.

    Handlock probably since I love ridiculous fat monsters and drawing cards.

    posted a message on HS can be harsh sometimes
    Quote from MrBurned >>

    I don't think the matchmaking system takes decks into account. It supposedly only cares about WR so you probably got matched against people who are new (bad) at the game but have spent money to buy those cards. No?

    Thankfully, Handlock is quite hard to master so beating inexperienced Handlock players is easy (coin into mountain giant anyone? :P).

    I feel like Coin-Mountain Giant is a rite of passage for the aspiring Handlock player XD. Just like everyone learning Oil Rogue should at some point go Prep-Coin-try-to-cast-Sprint-and-cry.

    Do we have to take all of these changes at once? Because if so I'm gonna go with not very awesome at all.
