Aren't the rules pretty vague and open ended? Something about "offending" a group of people?
That could pretty much be applied to anything.

Think there's nothing wrong with most the cards you mentioned. For example, CC is fine, it's only OP when combined with mana cheating mountain giant, so maybe they should look at mountain giant or just mana reduction mechanic in general.

I'll tell you where Warrior WILL drop a huge win percenage: the Quest Druid matchup.
As one of those cheating bastard hucksters that thoroughly enjoys Control Warrior, I can honestly say I don't see a consistent path to victory against this deck anymore.
Please don't caricature what I just said into "warrior never wins against druid". I simply guarantee you'll see a 15 point swing in that matchup at the very least after these nerfs.
As someone who's played quite a bit of quest druid I agree with this. Boom on 7 made the games really tough. Not unwinnable, but every turn after 7 that boom didn't get played my chances of winning went way up. Boom played at T10 and later is basically GG, my snowball has been rolling too long.
I don't know why people think Mage is going to crash vs warrior now. With boom at 9 it just got easier. CC got nerfed, yes, but the nerf doesn't prevent late game pressure, just makes early game shenanigans less likely. CC mage is still going to walk all over warrior without much problem.
Could possibly be true if mage switches away from highlander and starts running two copies of cc. But with just 1 cc and no more lunas I don't think mage will be able to pressure warrior enough

I play a lot of mage. You have to be aggro enough so that it's very awkward/impossible for me to play that card on turn 5. And the meta has become much more aggro lately; very hostile to mage. Win rate's dropping fast, don't think it needs a nerf. Especially don't think they should nerf both Luna's and conjurer's together, that would definitely be overkill.
Yes, mage destroys control warrior, but isn't that a good thing?

I tell you Reno mage is glorious so he may have made a good short term investment. It's going to suck for all of mage players though when they nerf 1-2 cards and cripple the whole class.

I've got a good win rate vs warrior, I usually just burn em down with a bunch of fireballs generated from Tony and I also run pyroblast. Try to get at least 2 - 3 fireballs from Tony.
Also you should focus on card draw early game since there's little pressure. Try to draw into lunas fast as possible. Hard Mulligan for card draw or lunas. At turn 8 that turtle guy can sometimes cast Luna for you

2) Message turns out to be shit..Don't care if it is fantasy, action, thriller, german bdsm porn, a message must exist..Right now the only message this show sends is "you cannot escape your past" and thats a shitty message to send.. Seriously, her father was mad so she has to be mad, just lazy, lame and cliché..
This is the part that personally bothers me the most: the nihilist message we're being given. Maybe people (like myself) shouldn't have expected a happy ending, and maybe this was GRRM's ultimate point all along, but I really did not need 8+ years of story to end with "nothing matters, you can't escape your past or overcome your deficiencies, everyone is fucked." Real life is cynical enough as it is.
I'll paraphrase an article I read: "the showrunners said that this final season would be 'bittersweet', but they pushed too much 'bitter' and not enough 'sweet'."
To me, one thing that could really make this ending is Queen Sansa. For all the lack of growth/reversion we've seen (Jamie, Brienne, Dany, Cersi), Sansa going from being the dumbest Stark and dumbest main character in the first few seasons, to becoming the most cunning and prescient character(super-saiyan Bran not included) has been a real bright spot (your "sweet" so to speak"). After all the horror she's endured, seeing her end up on top would be nice. It would also pacify all those saying that show treats women poorly after Dany became a crazy-pants that's surely going to die. Though I can't imagine the books ending with Queen Sansa, her character in the books is dumb beyond repair.
At the very least, there should be some surprise ending rather than "the heroic and good male chosen one becomes the king." He's acts just like Ned and Robb Stark, but I bet he won't suffer their fates.
We all know that he's going to kill Danearys and become king, although he'll feel very bad about it, I'm sure. A very bad ending to a story that was supposedly about upending the conventions of fantasy.
I don't think so. I think he'll kill Dany (his Queen) and then take the black rather than become king.
I think Jon's pretty much done with the Night's Watch after they murdered him ;P Don't see him going back to that. Maybe he'll travel north of the wall and join the wildlings though.

Nerfs more frequently are a good thing, it keeps things fresh in a game that otherwise grows stagnant very quickly.
And it doesn't require much intelligence to realize that rogue is overpowered. There's no need to wait and collect more evidence, it was clear from the start that rogue will require some tuning.

Is HBO just going to cut the azor ahai prophecy? Cause Arya doesn't really fit, and I think they're just going to pretend like the prophecy never existed and hope the average viewer doesn't notice.
Other than that I don't have a huge gripe with ep 3, but this detail bothered me. Hopefully they will fix it in the coming episodes, but I'm not too optimistic.
