    Dude I just went from 16 to 10 in a few hours today with Handlock. I think it is just fine.

    Boom is so key, even in mage decks like tempo mage (you said you like mage).

    Probably 10-20 games with around 50-60% (I haven't calculated, just a guess)

    I'm completely and utterly stuck at rank 5 each season. I was considering looking into coaching but it just feels bad to me. I feel like I should be doing it myself. Thoughts?

    posted a message on Disappointed but hopeful with Tavern Brawl.

    I hated this weeks brawl, like many others. I do have hope for future brawls though. This week had many upsides jumbled in its downsides, and I wanted to discuss them and talk about how this may affect future brawls in positive and negative ways.

    First, the positive of this week's Tavern Brawl:

    -Cool op cards to play with (for each class, but more for Nefarian)

    -Reward system (something the game lacks in most areas)

    -Open possibilities (this mode changes each week, so there are many opportunities to change or improve it)

    Now, the negative:

    -UNBALANCED gameplay (Nefarian wins almost every time)

    -Repetitive gameplay (same 2 decks and classes each time)

    -Lack of content (the 2 points above and a pack are what you get this week)

    OK, so now that I've gone through that, let me talk about how this affects the brawls. First of all, this week is a learning experience for Blizzard. Now they know that some more playtesting must be done or else the mode will be no fun. They will also know that they need to increase content (more deck and class options) or else no one will play it after day 1. They also know that they did some things right. These include cool new cards to play with and some basic rewards. If these good things are implemented better, the brawls would become infinitely better. As far as the option of new possibilities, Blizzard could do so many things better than this week. A few ideas I had involved implementing new op cards in an otherwise normal constructed deck for each player. This would challenge them to use the cards the most efficiently as well as teching against others with the cards. Another idea would be a constructed deck that could not use 0, 1, or 2 drops, shifting the game into a more control game. The constructed decks could allow for more replayability and content. Anyways, I'm hopeful Blizzard can recover from this week's misstep and turn brawl into something awesome. Tell me what you think of my analysis and ideas and give me some of your's!

    I don't understand what all the whining is about.  If it isn't worth $10 to you, simply don't buy it.  It isn't going to effect the meta in anyway, it's purely cosmetic.

     


    This is true, but its still a rip off. Also, for someone that may want the cosmetic skin, it is a shame that it would cost so much.

    On a more relevant note getting stuck at rank 5 isn't really that surprising. There is a pretty significant change in the way the ladder works at that point. You can no longer get win streak bonuses. Prior to that Wins are worth more than losses because win streaks can and will happen. As a result you climb quicker than you would have otherwise and it's even possible to climb the ladder with decks that aren't winning more than 50% of the time. Generally that has the affect of pushing a decent player towards rank 5 as long as they play enough games.

    Post the win streak bonuses your wins are no longer worth more than your losses so you need better win percentage to continue climbing quickly or even continue climbing at all. This is one of the reasons why the meta tends to slow down a bit as you get to the better ranks. Quick wins become less important than overall win/loss percentage because the bonus is gone.


    Makes sense, thanks for the insight.

    even copy 100% from Kolento. You not pro like him also no use.


    Just because I copy a deck doesn't mean I will automatically get to legend lol.

    Ok guys, I have 1600 dust and I'm still confused what to craft. 

    You can see my cards here: http://www.hearthpwn.com/forums/hearthstone-general/card-discussion/43155-my-corner-would-you-help-me-to-improve

    I consider these legendaries to craft:

    Archmage Antonidas
    Ysera
    Bloodmage Thalnos
    Lord Jaraxxus
    Mal'Ganis

    I'm close to chose Archmage Antonidas but I'm in two minds about Ysera as it fits in control Warrior. What would you choose if you were in my shoes? 


    I am leaning towards Ysera after looking at what you have.

    Either try a deck that is powerfull against the decks you are facing the most, in your case control warri , handlock with a shit ton of stuff to get through those early turns, or maybe a priest deck.

    OR:

    try to improve the way you play your current deck. Even though you might think you have figured your deck out 100% you still make mistakes.

    If you record your games and rewatch your loses, you'll often see a way you could have played differently , and probably won.Learn from these games, and improve further.


    That seems like a good idea. I find that I may also be a bit careless when I Imp-losion for two five games in a row and lose because of it, which may mean I just need a break.

    I'm in the exact same boat. Broke into 4, but fell back to 6. Now hovering around 5 for a while. Can't make any further progress with mid-range zoo. Took me all the way here. Really don't want to change horses mid stream. I think I can make more progress. I've had a string of bad RNG. Just need to keep chugging away (and not playing while on tilt ;)


    Glad I'm not alone!

    Welcome to the wall! From here on you need to play to counter the meta.  It's good you took note at what you're seeing.  To kill off Grim AND Handlock, you gotta pick a deck that's favored... I think Dragon Paladin or Waker Mage works.  Good luck!


    Thanks bro!
