    I found a bug where I don't automatically get my Golden Nomi with the discover Djinn on turn 7.

    posted a message on Why isn't there a post-match feedback system? Should there be one?

    Roping and BMing, although annoying, isn't against the rules though. I don't know if you're familiar with the concept of 'sledging' in cricket but it is where the opponents insult the other teams player to try and gain an advantage, and although very 'unsportsmanlike' (and pretty close to the bone at times) it is part of the tactics of the game to gain a psychological advantage. Cricketer's aren't allowed to tell the umpire that they don't want to play with the other players anymore because they hurt their feelings. There isn't a single sport or pastime where 'sledging' in some form doesn't exist. If some HS players are so delicate that they get upset by having to wait up to 2 minutes or being told hello (which you can even do something about at the start of every game) then I fear for them in real life.

    All classes lost 'iconic'cards. Hunter players are going to be crying they lost animal companion, eaglehorn bow and kill command. Hopefully it's all for the good of the game though rather than keeping individual class players happy. Not sure how rogue kept both step and backstab though...

    Rogue kept them both because it lost eviscerate and sap, 2 of its best ways to push face

     Sap is massive. It's a whole new world anyway so who's to say what's going to be strong, especially with lackeys rotating out too.

    posted a message on Press F to pay respects to Classic Dragons

    New Nozdormu is bizarre unless there is going to be some way to have a Gentleman's agreement with your opponent to both run it. Is anyone really going to run a do nothing most of the time card it in the hope they get the odd faster game?

    Unless there is going to be a clever way to put the card in to you opponents deck we haven't seen yet...

    posted a message on Just me a bit disappointed by the theme of the expansion?
    Quote from DeafKnight >>

    While I appreciate the “lore” factor in the Barrens, I agree its a pretty bland and pointless place to base an expansion on. 
    Not that I think it makes a huge difference to Hearthstone since it is really all about the cards and mechanics. But I agree that it is a very odd and perhaps somewhat dull area to theme on. 

    You ask any Horde player about their most memorable experiences and I'm sure quite a few will have stories about the Barrens that still bring a smile to their face, so how it can be bland, dull and pointless I'm not sure. I for one have very fond memories of questing around the Barrens with friends and I'm looking forward to the references in this set to a zone I enjoyed so much.

    No doubt when the Alliance players get their expansion next there will be the same complaints from people who didn't play through their starting zones (I have no idea about Duskwood, Ironforge or any other alliance areas it might be set so will probably have no nostalgia for the next set) , and I guess you have the players who didn't do either who may also feel like you do.

    Classic is the in thing right now though and you don't get much more classic than the Barrens.

    posted a message on Will they keep doing things like Darkmoon prizes?

    People worked out the prizes though. I think the game was more interesting, but also too fast as some of the prizes were way more busted than others and they never bothered to balance them. Plus they need to find a way to slow people down from getting busted tier 6 minions, not make it easier.

    posted a message on This combo seems problematic to me.
    Quote from Kinkyjohnfowler >>

    You’re arguing that the combo is ‘problematic’, people have told you it’s actually garbage and you will never come up against it on ladder (barring some extremely specific synergy cards being printed) and you are still arguing with these people.

    What exactly is the point of this thread as it is no longer clear? If it was to purely point out a fairly obvious unplayable synergy between 2 bad cards then fair enough, but that should be made clear before you start arguing the toss.

    In short, “the combo is terrible and will never be played, Tick and Illucia are far better at beating decks this combo would target. It does however differ from the effect of Gnomeferatu.”

    Is this a disagreeable statement? 

     What would a night club compere from Hull know about HS??

    My god you guys are so toxic.. The op is being respectful and reasonable, says things like "it SEEMS problematic TO ME", can't you just tell him why you think he's wrong ?

    I like how everyone thinks of himself as a great card evaluator but in reality every expansion we are horribly wrong about most cards, we think we learn to be more accurate every expansion but in reality game mechanics and cards combinations evolve much faster than our ability to review them.

     

    I don't see this particular combo as being problematic, but I can absolutely see a world where someone makes Felsoul Jailer problematic in some way or another. If you can make copies of it, silence it or whatever, it can quickly become a crazy anti-control/anti-combo card.

    Comparison with tickatus is also unfair, the reason you don't brewmaster tickatus is because you can felosophy it instead, and also because it already costs 13 mana to corrupt and play. And it burns cards from the deck, essentially having 0 immediate impact in exchange for bigger impact later in the game. Felsoul jailer has immediate, potentially massive impact if he burns the right card, so brewmaster makes more sense.

    In the grand scheme of things, it's like Tickatus, never going to be problematic because Hearthstone will always be an aggro driven game, but i'm positive a lot of hearthstone toxic members and great card reviewers are going to cry a river because Felsoul discarded their wincondition and they couldn't get back the card in time.

     Agreed, it shows the state of the forums when everytime someone puts something people don't agree with and it becomes a hivemind of people snarking and bullying and getting their self satisfying little pathetic jabs in from the safety of behind their own screen. What do mods do about it? Nothing.

    I like this interaction. Although slightly different reminds me of Moat Lurker which was a fun card. Would have been more problematic if witchy Lackey had still been around but locks are going to have problems permanently keeping the card out of your hand. I would also be more tempted to Ironbeak Owl (if it stays in rotation)  my own minion to keep the stats on board and owl is probably more versatile.

    posted a message on Who is preordering and if, which bundle?
    Quote from HoraceWalpol >>

    I've not decided yet. Usually I would buy the bigger bundle, but unless you're into cosmetics and golden cards, the smaller bundle of 60 packs and two legendaries for 50 USD seems like a better deal. Due to the reward track, I have way more gold than I'm used too, so I would be fine with fewer packs. Then again, you don't get the Battlegrounds perks with the smaller bundle, so I would have to spend additional gold on those... It's also the first expansion of the year and thus the one that will stay in standard for the longest time, and I do like the hero portrait, so I might end up buying the bigger bundle afterall. Decisions, decisions. I will NOT be buying both, that's too expensive for me.

    Tl;dr: The smaller bundle is probably the better deal, but I might buy the bigger bundle anyway because of Battleground perks and nice hero portrait. 

     I think the same, but I do like to play a few games of BGs, and after not buying it for the first couple of months last expansion having the pass makes such a difference to the BGs experience.

    Start of year so go with the big bundle. Would normally consider both but with new reward path I'm going in to the next expansion with more gold than ever so I don't need to.

    Quote from user-100103573 >>

    Elexxtron didn't you just had a similar thread taken down by the Mods because of how political it got. You didn't learn from it?

     The thread was locked because I was unwise and DID NOT PROVIDE THE SOURCE OF INFORMATION, okay?

     Quoting Scorpyon:

    "I'm locking this thread before this goes down a path a lot of people here will regret.
    By all means, discuss the new skin in terms of the game itself and how it fits into the lore, etc, but we don't entertain culture-politics or social politics here due to the arguments they always produce.

    LOCKED."

    And this thread is walking down the same path. It had nothing to do with your "source of information" Elexxtron

     I agree with your post, but to be honest modding on these forums isn't exactly consistent. I think they all mod by their own set of rules and whether a thread gets banned depends who is around at the time.

    posted a message on Dust Economy Rant (in response to today's Blizzcon Q&A )

    So you're salty they offered an incentive for returning and new players and you got nothing for being loyal? Welcome to the real world. My broadband provider offers new and returning customers much better deals than I've got. My TV provider does the same, and my gas, and my electricity provider. If you don't like it go and play Runeterra or Gwent until blizz offer deals to try and get your custom back, because you are a customer to them and they don't care about your dust.
