    posted a message on Less nerfing, more learning people.

    My issue with the game is that I'd like it to be something that it isn't, and I have to accept it and move on. I enjoy situations where both players have several tools (cards) and options, there's some strategy, and you gotta make decisions to solve "the puzzle" (puzzle being the match or turn), being smarter than the other player, or get outsmarted and lose. So I personally enjoy a more control oriented meta, with slower games and more decision making about when and where to spend your resources, baiting your opponent, etc. and not this autopilot matches where one player begins to snowball and the other gets this particular card that denies enemy's plan or just lose (at least that's my impression about these last years' meta). HS has never been too complex, but at least I remember some (old) times where there were some decks that required some thinking/maths/whatever, and even if they were really/too strong, at the same time they were somehow A BIT demanding for the player. 

    Nowadays, with this autopilot meta, people have gotten much more lazy, so now the trend is this turbo-netdecking and "nerf this, nerf that", cause we want it all chewed up (but it's not only with this game, lol). As said, in my opinion it's just a matter of accepting the trend has gone this way, so the minority (where I include myself) has to "try to enjoy" this ecosystem or move on to another game/hobby/more important thing to do than HS.

    Just my two cents, have a nice day.

    posted a message on How to nerf Oh My Yogg!

    Swap card from Paladin to Mage class (which identity-wise tends to be much more Yogg/RNG related), make it 3 mana to be in line with the other mage secrets, move Counterspell to Classic, HOF or whatever (so it's "replaced" by Oh my Yogg) and give Paladin a more crusadery/not so lunatic secret, such as "after your opponent casts a spell, summon one/two 1 mana cost minion and give it/them divine shield, or summon X passive hero power dudes, or even make your hero power cost 0 mana for 2 turns... I don't know, but I'd like something along that line, even if I know it will never happen.

    posted a message on I broke my TV
    Quote from Mixnmatch >>
    Quote from FlyingCarrot >>

    I was playing hearthstone and i kept loosing while trying to be creative on my decks.

    After witnessing like over 98% of hs just being net decks, and kept loosing.

    my anger grew up and i yeeted a mini fan for a phone which ricocheted on my 42 inch tv in my living room.

     

     Well, congratulations for being mentally immature person with anger management problems that lost probably more than feck hundreds of dollars over shitty online card game. Serves you right!

    But with such a mental problem broken TV is your least problem. I can't imagine person like you finding job or a partner or just staying alive...

     Holy shit, not like you're the only one here with that attitude, just quoting cause you're the last one, but the absolute lack of empathy of some people here is pretty disturbing. Not that I'm surprised, cause after all I'm a psychologist and I've seen every kind of shit in terms of people's personality/attitude, but c'mon, you guys really need to type a comment to bash a random guy this way? Anyway, guess he's not the only one who could benefit from some professional help. I imagine it's "the internet", can't believe you'd be that moronic face to face (or I don't want to believe it).

    On topic, as some people has suggested, maybe looking for some professional help could be a nice idea (seriously, not trying to be mean; after all some therapy sessions would be good to any of us), but meanwhile trying to avoid or reduce the "dose" of competitive online games could be a nice choice. Maybe I'm just getting old, but nowadays I'd rather enjoy a nice single player campaign than online games. Don't know your personal taste, but there's plenty of stuff to spend a long time: videogames jewels such as Portal, Bioshock, Resident Evil (RE8 just released), Dishonored, Max Payne, Warcraft or Starcraft campaigns if you're into strategy games. If you are into coop games you can try stuff such as Left 4 Dead to pump some adrenaline, or It Takes Two (fucking fabulous). Hollow Knight is a personal single player fav, but it may fall into the Dark Souls category, in the sense that they can be a bit hard/infuriating, so take those with a grain of salt (still, I love those, Sekiro being another masterpiece, but pretty hard too).

    Anyway, cheer up and have a nice day :)

    posted a message on Cards you hate that aren’t broken.

    Secrets in general make me a bit anxious, but when I think about it it's mainly because of the existence of some particular ones:

    Top hated: Counterspell

    2nd position: Oh My Yogg!

    3rd position: Freezing Trap

    I think my issue with them is that I find these secrets too "extreme" in the sense that you can autolose if you don't have a way to play around them. Not saying they are broken, I understand how they work and how to [try to] play around them, but as said, I get kinda anxious when dealing with them, cause you gotta choose if you make a risky play, sometimes to throw the game if it turns out to be "that secret", and others you try to play around/test them and by doing that you feel forced to missplay pretty badly when it's not that one. Dunno, I just don't like to deal with them. And I'm fine with almost any other secrets in game, but those three are pretty obnoxious to me.

    Oh, and the only reason I don't consider Oh My Yogg! my top hated is simply because it's pretty "new", but in terms of power/cost/how well it fits in its archetype, I think it's the most repulsive one: very cheap, really disruptive and tons of RNG involved. So my point to give Counterspell my top 1 is purely because I'm hyper bored of that card, giving me headaches since day 1 of HS. But as said, at least it's 3 mana, not 1 like the paladin one. And my issue with Freezing Trap is more or less the same, I'm just bored of seeing it and having to play around a so conditionally strong effect. Yes, you can even make benefit of it depending on your minions, or minimize risk to a point the trap itself isn't worth it, but as said before, I don't enjoy checking "if it's freezing trap".

    Guess the cherry on top is that they are cards that match really well with emoting and bullshit when you get baited or throw the game when going with your only play and triggering them while crossing your fingers for "please no counterspell/OMY/freezing trap".

    All this from a control player perspective, which I think it's important to consider, when playing aggro you prolly don't have so much issue with these particular cards (and even then...).

    Just my two cents, have a nice day :)

    posted a message on New Set but I just Don't Care Anymore...

    I've always been curious about those people who "need" to type the classic/meme comments such as "You won't be missed" or "None gives a fuck" in these kind of threads (not even going to quote them). I somehow feel bad for these poor souls, cause holy shit I can't help but feeling sorry for someone who needs to be disrespecful/mean on the internet to feel good, or cool, or whatever. I mean, you gotta be really fucked up if that's your thing. Others even vote up those comments. It's like a really pussy style bullying. Anonymity in internet brings out the worst in us, cause I'm 120% sure these randoms wouldn't have the "courage" to be that mean-cocky in person. Sometimes I just wish I could slap'em and say "hey kid, please don't be like that, just tell me what's wrong with you, I'm hear to listen", even if I would never actually resort to violence. Guess I'm getting old, and also feel the need to type this crap that none cares about. The cycle continues.

    posted a message on WandaVision: Marvel is BACK!!!

    Just watched the first two episodes and I found it pretty "special", in a nice way. I'm not a huge fan of the Marvel universe tho: not the kind of guy fapping with character teasers for movies, or crying when Thanos does his "Thanos things", etc. (got some friends like that and I tend to be the killjoy that feels a bit embarrased with those moments but hey, no hard feelings). What I mean is I enjoyed the different setting/atmosphere of these series, just to encourage to give it a try to non-fanatics, cause they'll find something somehow "fresh" at least, and a nice tribute to old sitcoms/cinema.

    posted a message on I just want to know what it feels like...

    Some months ago I remember having the experience of getting a triple: I was playing beasts (tier 4) and got to choose between King Bagurgle, Seabreaker Goliath and Junkbot. Definitely a blast. It has not happened since.

    posted a message on Illidan Stormrage Challenge

    After several failed tries with Galakrond version I swapped to a Quest Ress Priest and beat him first try. Maybe I just highrolled, even tho I don´t think it was that much: perhaps got some above average turns, such as getting Vargoth from Mass Ress on turn 9 (you can somehow "control" which ress pool you can get) but just that + quest hero power made it easy peasy. Won't say it's imposible with Galakrond, but in my experience this match up felt quite smooth with the quest archetype + deathrattle taunts package with ress.

    posted a message on which matches you enjoy the most?

    Playing control Mage against auto-pilot Odd Paladin (pre-nerfs), with Stonehill Defender and Dragon's Fury x2 or something similar as starting hand. I particularly love when I manage to Dragon's Fury and Arcane Tyrant x2 in turn 5. After that it's easy sweeping, drop some big minions, Jaina DK and bye bye my hyperdisgusting  sweet Uther. It's a nice plus when they spend the whole game spamming emotes while they think they got the control of the game (aka board flooded by hero power duderinos) just before you kaboom their whole board <3

    posted a message on Kingsbane cant be rotated out soon enough.

    I'm just quitting Hearthstone at least till next rotation, cause right now I simply can not enjoy the game: I can't stand current meta-game, Kingsbane being one of the main problems (its gameplay issues already explained here tons of times). It's not the first time that happens to me, already had some other breaks for a few months before. But that's fine, there are many other games I can spend some time with, and to be sincere as an old fanboy of the company, I'm quite disgusted with Blizzard nowadays, so if I manage to avoid supporting them at all, sadly I can say I'm glad about it. Already quitted Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm after several years of spending time & money on them, guess it's time for Hearthstone too :3
