    posted a message on Minus MMR for winning

    It just happened to me as well. Rank 7600ish, first place, negative -48 rating. It is not a bug, as it has happened several times before, since the beginning of battlegrounds. It is not just demotivating, it is just utterly retarded. Why on earth would one ever choose to play in a lobby where one can only lose points despite investing time, spending effort and winning. One would not choose, so why then enforce it? Terrible design.

    When a minion is turned to golden using one of the mechanics below, are addtional required copies removed from the pool? Or will they remain, increasing the total number of copies available to ny given lobby?
    - Seafood Slinger: Does it remove 2 murlocs/Amalgadans from the pool or 0?
    - Tony Two-Tusk: Does it remove 2 pirates/Amalgadans from the pool or 0?
    - Zephrys hero powers: Does it remove 1 minion from the pool or 0?
    - Reno hero power: Doe it remove 2 minions from the pool or 0?
    - Mr. Bigglesworth hero power when getting golden copy?
    - Getting golden minion from golden Murozond battlecry?

    posted a message on When can I get new bg perks? Shop still closed
    Quote from Banur >>

    Have you checked the shop on any other device? That is probably on your end as it is open for me on PC, Amazon android and ipad.

    Alternatively use the web shop: https://eu.shop.battle.net/en-gb/product/hearthstone-battlegrounds-perks

     Thanks for the reply, but I have no other device. Also I don't think the online shop sells perks for in-game gold. Haven't checked though.

    posted a message on When can I get new bg perks? Shop still closed

    With the release of the new expansion my battleground perks are gone. I would like to get the perks again via buying them in the shop for gold. But the shop has a Closed sign before it and the Perks-button in the battlegrounds section is disabled. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing changes. Starting from when can I have access to shop and thus bg perks again? And why is the shop closed / perk-buying disabled to begin with? It's just stupid to release something and then close the shop so people can't even buy it...

    Quote from NotLuminate >>

    Card is fine, has very little immediate impact.  Takes a long time to build up.

    Right. That's why literally more than half of each and every lobby is playing it.
    It doesn't take long at all to scale it up. Tarecgosa is maldesigned.

    Quote from Chewy2231025 >>

    I am tired of PPL saying devs dont care about their game because that is just a BS lie of an argument that PPL use cause they have nothing to say. Would u spend years Working on a project/work if u didnt care about it? No. 

    They did the change because they wanted PPL to PLAY the game mode, not just abuse a low lvl farm that wasnt intented to exist. Instead of being a negative Karen, how about u help find solutions ton make a positif impact. Or is that to hard?

     I can agree with that. But were they living under a rock for the past two weeks that they've fixed it just now? You do understand that people that didn't have as much time as all those that abused it are really far behind?

    It's just a well-known mechanism used to get things kickstarted and get people hooked / feel committed. We've seen it at the start of WoW classic as well with rigged Scarlet Monastery raids and how they resolved it.  

    The one thing to do with this game mode, actually with this entire company, is to ignore it hard.

    Anyone else recognize lower rates or what are your new farming strats?

    New farming strat: do not farm, aka ditch mercs
    doing otherwise would show support for this maldesigned greed-fest

    posted a message on What when all tasks are completed? (Camp Fire & Mysterious Stranger)
    Quote from ArcyroX >>

    I hope the best case scenario, that once you do every task of your owned mercs, Stranger would offer you tasks for mercs you dont own. That would be wonderful. But maybe too generous when you think of blizzard... :/

    Worst case: Mysterious Stranger encounters stop happening, which would force players to keep campfire full to get 15 coins or smth else

    Yup. Appearance rate of mysterious stranger is now drastically lowered. Imagine being able to farm coins for what you want. 
    MUST... PROHIBIT...

    posted a message on What when all tasks are completed? (Camp Fire & Mysterious Stranger)

    As if mercenaries wasn't already rip off enough with useless coins etc., I noticed that after having completed 18 tasks on a couple of mercenaries they are no longer able to get new tasks. What does this mean for the camp fire when all tasks for all mercenaries are done? Which won't be too long now. And what happens at the mysterious stranger? Right now specific coins can be farmed there if you have 4 outstanding tasks. You can select coins for another party member. Will this stop because he can no longer give tasks?

    Now they have even started to sell coins in the shop. Go figure.
    WTS air. WTS air. How is this practice even legal?

    Spending this amount of money on Mercs is utterly pointless. Once a hero is maxed out, the coins for it become useless.

    posted a message on Is Mercenaries the new Artifact?
    Quote from Psy_Kik >>

    It doesn't stream well - many games don't. The economy within the mode is uber-greedy, with nothing to do with excess coins. I haven't even hit this wall yet, only those who really whaled the launch have I suspect, but knowing it is enough to put me off the grind.

     

     I had several Mercs maxed out before I purchased 20 packs to help speed up the others. Sure, it is longwhile, but if you make yourself a plan and an Excel-sheet to keep track of things, it goes fast enough. Also, once something is done, it is done, meaning you can focus on something else. Which will be done as well. Rinse and repeat.

    OT: I like the grind of Mercenaries. But that is only because I literally am a no lifer. I'm disabled, practically deaf, bound to my one-room apartment in my wheelchair, never getting outside, meaning I have been grinding for 16 hours a day for the past 4 days. I bought 20 packs a few hours ago, but that is and will be the only spending ever. While I wrote the previous paragraph, I cannot imagine ever completing all Mercs (esp. the legendaries which I still lack). I consider myself a rarity in the world with the amount of time spent, with a plan and goal. Meaning if I cannot imagine myself completing all Mercs even with 16 hours/day, the great majority of people will not. For let's face it: most people would like to play casual, perhaps 2 hours a day top, or less. They'll never ever even come close, time-wise. That's not even mentioning boredom-wise, for it gets boooorrrring. And that's exactly the problem for the streams: it's BORING to watch. I heard streamers complain about it, even on YouTube, like Regis saying: I just cannot possibly keep up man.

    posted a message on Crafting Diablo

    Eventhough farming coins for legendaries like DIablo isn't the fastest in the world, trust me, coins soon become useless. Once a hero is maxed out there is no more use for them. Perhaps, in the distant future, who knows, but not now. Therefore you better spend coins asap.

    EDIT: Once you have a Mercenary, you can get tasks for it, receive it as visitor, etc. You would be missing out on those things if you would not have the Mercenary. Therefore, the sooner the better.

    It's a scam, illegal and I want my money back. My claim still stands.

     Then why are you on HearthPwn and not on the Blizzard support site getting a refund? We can't help you with any of this, we can just tell you what we know about this. Only you can contact Blizz and get a solution for this.

    Why? Because word of illegal practice has to be put out there so people are aware and do not fall victim as well.
