    Quote from Andrei2007 >>

    Conceding after a bad mulligan is really bad. A good player always goes for their outs, and only when there is no possibility to win the game anymore should you concede.

     No not a bad mulligan, when I mulligan all cards and I get exactly the same in return, from experience I know it is a lost cause, this particular game I am meant to loose. What you said I have tried, only to irritate myself. So I save the pain and time waisted, by just conceding :-)

    At first I was going to make a poll but I figured that there might be more options then I could think. Thus maybe people could share their thoughts by comment, only mention the red line so not casual concedes.

    My red line is mulligan, when I mulligan all 3 or 4 cards and get exactly the same cards then I know that the rng gods have made up their minds thus I concede, what is your concede mechanism?

    I know it's cliche but also use a deck you actually like. I don't actively try to hit legend, I get to diamond 5 and of I'm not playing decks I typically enjoy then I switch over. If it happens, it happens but the rewards are so minimal I just don't have the time or care enough to actively grind. If you enjoy the deck you're playing then it can just happen naturally. As soon as you start sweating about 'having' to win your next game, your normal game can easily go out the window and you make mistakes you wouldn't usually make.

    Don't pressure yourself, if you don't hit legend, you're like what? A pack worse off? Don't sweat it. 

    Sometimes I'm enjoying a particularly casino type mage and won't see anything past about diamond 3 but I enjoy the deck so if I go back to 5 I just don't care. 

    I do really enjoy the pain zoo style though and used that to go from gold to legend with no sweat what so ever last month. Think I lost 4 games between d5 and legend but I didn't really notice because I wasn't pressuring myself to maintain any kind of win streak. It's much easier to play if you're calm and not over thinking ever decision because you've built it up in your head. 

    Also taking a break is a good idea, if you hit d1 then some time away isn't a bad thing. Playing when your mind is tired is another way of making silly mistakes or missplays and that's the case with anything competitive. 

     I use my homebrew deck, I don't like meta.

     Be helpful to include your deck in your OP then because it might not be a particularly good list. What are you actually looking for here then? I assume it isn't deck help so what advice are you hoping for? If you're consistently trying and failing then either you aren't good enough or your deck isn't (or a combination of both).

     Hey bro,

    Maybe you are right and indeed it needs tweaking. Take a look below.

    posted a message on Should they add a "I dont want to grind to legend but still rank feature"
    Quote from Nefine1337 >>

    Imagine if you are able to choose at the beginning of a season whether you want to be able to climb towards the rank of legend or if you want to just simply stop at DIamond 5. And your decision will be final for that season.

    Why implement such a feature?

    Well apparently you are only able to enjoy the game on the rank of legend because player will only than start to play meme and fun decks.
    Players who want to reach legend will most likely play cancerous decks.

     Players who do not want to reach the rank of "pointless legend grind" will not have to play against cancerous decks since you will only be matched against players who chose the same as you.
    Meaning, you play against the player base who actually want to play the game with meme and fun decks and not just brainless canerous board flooding decks that enable them to rank up fast to reach the "pointless legend grind" rank.

     

    Thoughts?

     I do not agree, I just want to reach legend, maybe I like to achieve it and no meta or cancerous deck for me.

    I play my homebrew big spell mage deck, it suprises the lot:

    I got legend when i understood that getting legend has no impact in my real life has no prestige. When i got legend the first time i felt a momentary happiness and that's it.

    What i normally do is, i set small goals every time i play, for example reach a certain rank. After two losses in a row i stop and take a break..i try not to tilt and the most important thing for me is to be consistent i always play one deck to legend and i say my plays out loud (like reading)..  

    So, try and be consistent, play your favorite deck/class and when you stop having fun stop. And the internet is your friend buddy, google your favorite deck, watch streamers who play this deck and learn from them..

     I know it won't make any impact, I just want to achieve it. It is like finnishing a game and that is the end boss :-)

    The game is not rewarding towards good players.

    Going to legend is a pure grind. Try to notice why you lose when you lose, if there are cards that are constantly not useful and can they be replaced. After that, tune your deck and stop making same mistakes. Grind. You are legend. Easy.

     

     Most of this is true. Not sure why you wrote not rewarding to good players...

    I think what you meant is RNG allows bad players to win more. A good player will already be doing the things you mentioned and won't have the aforementioned LS.

    That said OP. Tilt will wreck you, mental walls will wreck you, RNG can wreck you. If you're experiencing any of these things, take a break, go outside come back when you're refreshed.

     

     Thanks for the advice!  But only the going outside part won't work, pretty harsh lockdown rules over here, the police will beat you back home :-)

    This my 6th month in a row, whenever I take a glimpse in diamond 1, immediatly after I seem to rock bottom to 5 in a stroke of bad luck (I think). Then I finnish the month at 5 or maybe 4, but I never reach 1 again the same month.

    I must be doing something wrong or play wrong. Anyone else in the same boat?

    Or someone who tackled this? Maybe I should take a break after reaching 1 and then wait a few days? Does that even "reset" anything? Is MMR monthly? Or does any of your rating drop when you don't play for a few days?

    Quote from Hooghout >>

    Hearthstone is not made for people who are driven bij ethics and the 'right thing to do'. As Blizzard aka T5 for the past 7 years did nothing against roping and never introduced an auto squelch for that matter, it is an intricate part of vulgarity attracting morality of developers themselves.

    Hearthstone is a repulsiveness producing game equally made by people who are reprehensible themselves simply because it seems to sell more packs.

     I understand you like to question the ethics of the developers, but if I'm understanding you correctly... you think that T5 is purposely not implementing features that would make the game better for the handful of people that want the feature... because they are evil. And they are spreading their evil through the game in doing so?

    And this evil behaviour is actually helping them sell more packs? I guess I'm not following the logic behind that.

    I think this is a matter of perspective. People roping intentionally could very well be a person continually analyzing the game to try and make better plays as they go. Much like many of the grandmasters, they rope almost every single turn, deciding what they are going to do and make the best play at the last moment they have. Sometimes even missing their last move because of time.

    This may not be the case for everyone on ladder, but if people are doing it, it is their right, and we can't decide for them if they are doing it out of malice or their own need, because we can't see the other side of the screen.

     This game is ruled by a very profound understanding of human psychology and the primordial human psyche. Enjoying the game means to annoy your opponent in every possible way. Game design facilitates. 

     

     So annoying bots are also a good thing then? Every game is only fun when there is a competetion and not when one annoys the other. Let's say a boxing match, there is no boxing because one of the contenders is playing time and running away all the time, or a football game where one of the team has so called injuries and playing on time. Yes they are allowed to but no it is not fun or nice.

    They just hope to win with concedes by irritating.

    Sounds like you're letting them succeed, too. 

    As is repeatedly the case, here - there is literally nothing wrong with roping for any reason whatsoever, whether it's trying to to figure out your next turn, how to deal with what's on the board or simply trying to annoy your opponent into conceding. These are all legitimate and valid reasons to take your whole allotted turn.

    You might as well get upset with people for playing cards you don't like or playing an aggro or combo deck etc. 
    The problem here isn't with them...

     We found us a roper, congratulations. With football the referree will pul out a yellow card for wasting time. Wasting time intentionally to earn that tad bit of xp is just bad. Same like a mosquito sound when your trying to sleep, irritating.
