    posted a message on Speaking of patron, cancer and otk

    I got to relive those crazy Mana Addict moments in the 10-mana Tavern Brawl. It was awesome.

    Quote from M_Ronin jump

    Playing shaman. 29 hp. Have a healing totem, spell totem, taunt totem and an azure drake. Opponent has a 4/1 death's bite equipped.

    Turn 9. Warsong commander + Frothing Berserker + Grim Patron + Whirlwind + Death's Bite charge = 31 damage (after killing my taunt)

    Me dead.

     

    Yeah. Like I could do something against that. If this is not ridiculously OP, I don't know what is.

    I was a Handlock at 27 health with 2 taunts of 20 total health. Still dead in a turn.

    posted a message on Rng is good for competitive hearthstone and fun?

    Most card games, by default, are heavily influenced by chance. Your decision making in a card game HAS to involve some mental approximation of the potential RNG outcomes. The more RNG elements exist in the game, the higher the "skill cap" to succeed in it.

    However, this also means a handful of matches will never truly reflect one's overall competence in playing the game. Rather, one's "skill" is more accurately reflected in his or her winning percentage over a large amount of matches.

    In addition, RNG or chance is what gives everyone a winning chance regardless of the "skill gap" between the players.

    posted a message on Hearthstone director on why Grim Patron nerf won't happen yet.

    For Blizzard to nerf a card, it usually has to meet 1 or 2 of the following requirements:

    1. It enables or helps enable a class or a certain deck archetype to dominate the meta by a significant margin (ex. Undertaker).

    2. It enables or helps enable some form of excessive burst damage with little to no correlated interactions between the two players (ex. Leeroy Jenkins).

    3. It outclasses any cards in the latest expan$ion set.

    I don't think Grim Patron has quite met the first requirement yet (or the third), but I'm sure this will change when more and more people are getting acquainted with playing the Patron deck, eventually pervading the meta in a substantial amount.

    posted a message on How do new players endure ranked?

    OP, my sentiment exactly ever since I started playing on F2P accounts.

    It is not about veterans like some of us coming up with a decent deck and casually climbing the ladder with all the experience and knowledge behind them. It is about new players coming into a competitive environment that is so hostile it seems every game for them will inevitably end in a humiliated defeat. It is about how new players could get discouraged and pass up on what would become a fantastic card game experience.

    Sure, you can tell the them to learn and study the game properly, and it's all up to them to learn the ropes and nobody should hold their hand. But it is also true that our player base has matured to the point where new players will find the game harder to enjoy when it seems hopeless to compete with a better, more experienced and ever growing player base.

    I don't think telling them to smarten up and ignoring the actual issue they are facing will help, but I'm not blaming anyone here. It is just what it is.

    I can confirm that the method works painlessly.

    Quote from luvem1290 jump

    amazons no longer offering the 20% deal, so this is down to 10% 

    You could still buy 5000 Coins at $45 with the 3 x $15 gift card.

    Quote from nDubya11 jump

    Just lost to an Ebola paladin on turn 3.. TURN FUCKING 3.

    there is so much wrong with this game right now

    If it makes you feel any better, I just rekt an Eboladin with a Handlock. My Earthen Ring Farseer, 2 x Antique Healbot, and Lord Jaraxxus totally saved my ass there. He was 1 off and then 2 off from killing me. He rage quit after I taunted up some fatties.

    WTF is wrong with you Battlenet Matchmaking? WTF is wrong with you Battlenet Matchmaking? WTF is wrong with you Battlenet Matchmaking?

    Doing casual with Oil Rogue and in 13 games, I ran into:

    4 Handlocks, 3 Face Hunters, 1 Freeze Mage, 1 Control Warrior - pretty much all Hard/Tough counters to my deck. Then there is the Druid with the discounted Double Roar in hand by turn 10, the Combo Priest that has every removal/AoE in the world and a Loatheb.

    I swear doing quests on casual is like 100x harder than laddering.

    EDIT: As soon I switched to Control Warrior, I met a Shaman (after like 45 seconds of queuing). Thank you, Blizzard.

    Updated: 4 Face Hunters.

    posted a message on How many packs are sufficient to open on TGT release?
    Quote from Kidsoldja jump

    Theres no way you opened only one legendary in 121 packs man who are u bullshitting?

     

    None, random is random after all. I wrote it up on a paper to see how many i got, bought 100 packs on realease and then a 20 more during the time, so it's an exact number. The only legendary card i do have got from GvG is Mekgineer Thermaplugg. Same was it with the classic packs before, bought like 90 and got 1 legendary Ysera. Most of my legendaries are from the pve adventures, and i've crafted 4 and gotten 4 from packs. Got over 5k wins and 8 golden heroes. But as i said, random is random. I'm just the unlucky one.

    1 in 120. That's most unfortunate, but I believe things will even out eventually. I've had what I consider a long drought on my F2P accounts. Zero legendaries in about 40 packs or so since I started those accounts, then all of a sudden, I pulled 6~7 legendaries within a day's time. My main account also has had some drought, but the overall stats show a 5.5% drop rate for legendaries over a large amount of packs, so nothing unusual statistic-wise.

    posted a message on Tree of Life BM equals MajorDomo and loss of a won game
    Quote from jonnydeathstar jump

    As far as I know, the only to boost Majordomo / Ragnaros health is to use Alexstraza to set health to 15hp. 

    Armour buffs work too of course. Pretty sure you keep any armour you had before changing to Ragnoros.

    Any hero replacement will reset the armor to 0.

    posted a message on New Priest Card - Confuse
    Quote from n00neimp0rtant jump

    Surprised so few people are mentioning that this card can help activate Cabal Shadow Priest, Shadow Madness, Shadow Word: Pain, and Shadow Word: Death. Combos seem gimmicky.

    I think cards like Crazed AlchemistInner Fire can do the same job without messing up the board.

    Already crafted him some long, long time ago, but still, getting Ragnaros the Firelord for the first time from a pack is something to be commemorated.
