    Control deck... probably you mean fatigue decks? There's a Priest deck, very hated because of too much generation. It got nerfed 2 weeks ago. That's the only good fatigue deck. Others are bad. I think they are going to move away from fatigue win conditions to something that actually kill people or end games, not just by boredom after 30 turns. They started printing more and more well-timed finishers for resource focused decks. For example, Warrior has Rattlegore and Silas. Libram had Flingers, haha, and now that 5 attacks weapon. Then N'Zoth stuff, Clowns, Cenarion Ward... We are looking to see what we get from the newest expansion.

    Yeah, Year of the Raven almost killed HS with all that overpowered / underpowered and polarized stuff. Design got much better since then (of course, with occasional blunders). The thing is, HS is somewhat less exciting for a different reason, simply for being  an old game. But it still holds up. One of the problems recently has been "created by", there was/is too much of it. On the other hand, on curve decks make games way to similar. They need to hit the right balance with this.

    Now we are just waiting for the next xpack. Current meta is balanced and all, but boring, because of one dimensional curve decks. Currently not enough cards in the format.

    Doom Shaman is possibly tier 1, though.

     Is it?

     It is.

    posted a message on Wow - Miracle/Secret Rogue is so bad.... what a let down.

    Discussion is whatever, but will people ever stop bringing stats from the meta tab on HSReplay? Non premium, meaningless tab, only raw data.

    posted a message on Priest Is The Best Class. 64% WR Over 64 Games
    Quote from FloatingMana_HS >>

    I just gave one example of a previous deck that came to mind. Every deck gets better with experience, but rn I'd say priest has that highest skill gap keeping it from having a good win rate in the hands of some players. I also think mage has a skill gap right now. Obviously there are the brain dead Games where you get the dream incanters flow and win. But sometimes that's not the case and pointing a fire ball face instead of a minion, or vise versa can be game costing. Or just how you use the cards given to you. You can definitely tell the difference between a good mage player and bad one

    But, other equally good players playing the best decks are always going to do even better than good players playing worse, below 50%, "high skill cap" decks. Thus, the latter players will always underperform playing "high skill cap" decks against their colleges. At the very best, they can only get even.  So, it all comes back to statistical average win-rates. Someone can bring 45% deck to 51%, as well as someone can bring 51% deck to 57%. So, people playing a "high skill cap" 45% deck can have a hard time against a complete noob who's playing a 51% deck (who can't outperform, just possibly underperform). Actually, their best hope is beating noobs. But, on the ladder one plays against similarly skillful players. 

    Most of the time "high skill cap" are even without potential, they are plain crap. Some excellent pros play 10 games with a crappy deck from rank2 to rank1 legend, and advertise that on twitter (they wouldn't twitt otherwise), but it's just a statistical error, other people will not achieve good results, not even pros. 10 games and spectacular effects in those don't matter a penny. 

    People are either biased, memers or masochistic and eccentric posers, so they want to see something in nothing; hidden truths and esoteric knowledge. We humans are biased, we go hype after seeing something fancy, but nobody notice all those times when xy card never panned out, sitting useless in your hand, actually losing you most of your games. For example, Ooze. Isn't it great when you ooze someone, but for every oozing you lose 10 other games because of that card in your deck (even against weapon decks). Ooze is good only if most of the meta are weapon decks. People shouldn't judge things after seeing one thing in one game. Very often, ugly decks with nothing fancy have the highest winrate; they beat you purely through synergies of their 30 cards.

    I could be bias bc I love the class. But I think the class gets more hate bc people just see a win rate on hs replay. I know hs replay is a great reference. But there's been many deck in the past like patron warrior, that was kinda meh until it hit the hands of an experienced player. I feel like priest rn is one of those

     Every deck is better in the hand of an experienced player. Why just Priest or Patron Warrior?
