I don't mind it in Ranked. I get that you need to do it to keep up.
But it irritates me when it is in Casual.
Ofcourse I dislike it. It's inevitable. BUT..
1. Yes, Blizzard does push archetypes, leaving very little room for creativity. (don't even try to act like the current top tier versions of decks like dragon priest, pirate warrior and jade druid took creativity) BUT for some reason people are very hesitant to change even one card. For some reason they think their netdecked top tier version is the absolute best version in every situation. I really wouldn't mind netdecking as much if every deck I met had atleast a few different cards. Meeting the exact same version of a deck over and over again gets very boring though.
2. To adress your second point. Yes, if someone has evident better choices, it's obvious you copy them. However, most of the time the quality of choice is dependent on the matchup. Let's say you are playing renolock, and you meet another renolock with the exact same deck BUT he has a Ragnaros, whereas you have a mistress of mixtures, so he beats you. You'd definitely rather have that mistress vs a pirate warrior, if you see where I'm coming from.
3. Point 3 and 4 are a bit repetitive (basically, netdecking is natural and everyone does it) but to get to point 5: Not netdecking doesn't mean every deck is completely random. It's not like everyone would press the button that randomly fills your deck.
Let's imagine a hypothetical situation where no one netdecks, or even copies cards they see from their opponents. Anyone who has the least bit of experience can imagine a dragon deck is strong, if you put in enough dragons and synergy cards. Same for pirates, jades etc. So the majority of the playerbase wouldn't just chuck in some random cards, but have a deck that mainly revolves around one purpose. The difference is that, while alot of people would probably play dragons and pirates, there would be differences between those decks.
I don't like netdecking but also it's not problem for me. I'm playing this game for fun and there is too much ways to enjoy the game, it is not just winning.
I'm just worried about who netdecks because it's harmful for their brains.
Also I really don't understand netdecking. Because in my opinion; most funny part of a card game is collecting cards and building decks according to your collection. When anyone did this from a guide, how can they enjoy ? I'm really curious about this situation. How enjoyable is playing with any decks and winning? How enjoyable is playing with same deck current meta long?
I guess People who netdecks misses the most enjoyable part of the game.
I guess the actual problem people have is not netdecking, but using "cookie-cutter decks" not knowing how they work instead of... well, deckbuilding.
Althrough to be honest, I think netdecking can be a good thing for starters. Seeing the similarities in the decks can help you to learning about staples and good choices.
PD: Sorry for my english, is not my mother language
The fact that it ruins the game? That is the problem. I don't know about everyone else, but I am sick of playing against the same decks repeatedly. You aren't mlg, you aren't playing for a team, hitting legend means jackshit because the deck easiest to get legend with is also completely braindead. You aren't proving anything to anybody. You just make the game worse for us who are tired of you being an uncreative wannabe competitive gamer.
Like yeah bro, midrange shaman is powerful. Oh you are so skilled winning a game at rank 4 with midrange shaman. Is that what you want to hear? Because the truth is, you are just boring as fuck to play with. Especially in casual. Casual is ruined by netdeckers, there is no excuse there.
Also, don't know if you know this or not, but tournament players play the best shit because it is their source of income. I don't know a single tournament player or streamer who would continue to competitively play HS if they weren't making money off of it. So comparing everybody to them is just stupid. You know why we are tired of MSoG? It isn't because there isn't cool new decks to play. It's because 99% of jerks like you need to make your epeen feel big by winning. The reality is no one cares but you.
