    posted a message on Winrate

    I remember once - not sure if it was here or on Reddit - but someone posted a deck and claimed to have climbed to legend with a 96% winrate - 24 out of 25 wins. They posted 'proof' in the form of a deck tracker shot where, amazingly, they had barely faced a Demon Hunter on their entire climb, despite DH being about 30% of the meta at the time. :-p

    EDIT: waste of time.

    This is a hidden pool my friend. The game does not want you to be on a long streak. Every last star of each rank I face counter to my deck. Old system, current system, doesn’t matter. This happens already for a couple of years. The only thing you can do is to counter this shit by yourself. So in my case, when I am 1 win off the next rank I simply counter pick. 

     Um... if you 'counter pick', wouldn't the allegedly fixed MMR just queue you into whatever counters your counter? Since it supposedly has final say into what archetype you queue into?

     you can keep on with the ridiculous strawmanning and rhetoric and I get it...that is all you got. But your accusation is that I am a frustrated player blaming the system for my failing. When I inform you that i am not failing, I am just observing a biased system, you jump to hyperbole and mockery. 

    So to any actual observers out there, take note that when the person arguing with you resorts to ad hominem attacks, strawman arguments, and rhetorical circles...it means they are are full of it. Hearthstone is rigged. 

    Isn't calling people who are arguing with you naive, disingenuous, retarded, shills, Bizzard employees, community managers, sleeper agents for Blizzard, Illuminati, and/or Lizard People also just a wee bit of an ad hominem attack?

    (EDIT: actually, going back, I'm pretty sure you never actually called anyone 'retarded', so I'll withdraw that one)

    It is very funny watching stranger regurgitate all the standard arguments, tinfoil hat, prove it, etc. Being a community manager and have to spend your days lying on a forum must be a sad existence. 

     If they're a community manager, they're doing a piss poor job. Imagine posting a total of 9 times in 4 years!!!

    TallStranger, you're about to get fired. ;-)

    posted a message on How do you think the meta will shift?

    Priest and Mage will get a bit better thanks to the nerfs to Demon Hunter. Highlander mage in particular is already a pretty solid deck; it will only get stronger after the patch.

    Blizzard weighted RNG is the real cancer. The catch up mechanism that blizzard thinks makes their game more 'fun' makes the competitive experience extremely frustrating when you lose to the same exact unlikely bullshit time after time. Priest just happens to have weighted RNG as their win condition which makes playing a game against that class truly horrible. It's like playing someone who yogg's every turn. 

     You'd think they'd be running at higher than 47.5% WR on HSReplay, or 49.66% WR with their best deck on Vicious Syndicate, huh?

     I guess you fail to understand my post. Nowhere did I site priests win percentage or say that it was too strong. My point was that playing against it feels truly horrible because it is like being in a coin flipping contest with a clown. 

     You didn't just say that, though. You talked about how Blizzard weights RNG and stated that Priest's win con was weighted RNG. So surely it's a class that would do well if Blizz were messing with our RNG on the sly? Since that is, in fact, its win condition?

     So you make an incorrect supposition. I correct you and you double down that you know better what I am saying. Just read the words bro, your opinions are ridiculous. 

     Different ideas on what's ridiculous, I guess. What would you call continuing to play a game when you're dead set convinced that it's rigged against you, despite professing that "the competitive experience (is) extremely frustrating when you lose to the same exact unlikely bullshit time after time"?

    posted a message on Duplicate protection by support team

    1) Wow, what terrible communication from the support team. Truly awful.

    2) First three paragraphs are clearly just a lazy copy/paste answer telling you stuff you already know.

    3) Paragraph four certainly appears to be saying that the duplicate protection does not apply to rare cards. Doesn't say whether this is a bug or intended, doesn't specify whether it's only rares or not (what about epics?).

    4) Then this true bit of WTF: "If you think it is unfair may I advise you send you view straight to our developers... we welcome any feedback..." Well, how about this feedback, where your own goddamn patch notes say that duplicate protection now applies across all rarities, as stated here?  https://playhearthstone.com/en-us/news/23357896 Does this person, who is presumably a paid employee of blizzard, somehow not know this? Holy shit.

    5) No indication of when this will be fixed (in fact, the person replying seems to think it's not a bug, but is working as intended). Doesn't address whether the rares and epics received as end of season rewards (which I presume is what you're talking about when you say 'cards we get from sources other than packs' are supposed to get this duplicate protection rule. Again, if that's the case, then this employee hasn't a clue, there's an article on it right here: https://www.hearthpwn.com/news/7414-duplicate-protection-in-season-rewards-chest-not )

    6) Abysmal communication by Blizzard here. Reminds me why I don't give them my money any more.

    posted a message on Sathrovarr still unplayable?

    3 out of 4 posters so far just read the title and not the actual content of the post.

    TS, I suggest you actually go to Blizzard's site and write out a support ticket.

    If they nerf it they'll have to give everyone 3,200 dust... I don't see that happening somehow.

    posted a message on Who is Vkliooon?
    Im calling into question how one person - unknown until now just instantly won all tournaments and got into Blizzcon.

    How the hell do you think she won tournaments? By playing and beating high-level opponents, maybe??

    Your question is not only rude, but also clueless and weirdly narcissistic. "I've never heard of this player before, therefore I find it deeply suspicious that they are suddenly competing at a high-level tournament." WTF, man.
