    posted a message on Yes, I truly enjoy the meta right now

    This is the first meta I've enjoyed in a long time... Never had the urge to grind to Legend before but I'm going for it this month. It's the first time I feel like the "rock, paper scissors" / "control / aggro / combo" style of meta has been in play.

    My main decks have been Mecha'Thun Priest (climbed to rank 5 with this) and Deathrattle Hunter (Climbed to rank 2 with this) and I'm having a blast.

    The grind continues... Rank 3, 1 star with Deathrattle Hunter. 58% win rate.

    To everyone that hit Legend this month already, how many games roughly are you playing to get there and did you just stick with the same deck since rank 5 or do you change?

     

     I stuck mostly with the tempo mage.  I did play deathrattle hunter at the start of the month.  I had a Play Shaman cards quest so I switched to Shudderwock for a bit.

    Deathrattle hunter is one of those decks that you can probably stick with because it doesn't have so many polarizing matchups.  It's tough to climb with, say, quest rogue or Mecha'thun or something like that because there's so much aggro (between tempo mage, zoolock, and odd rogue).  Most matchups with deathrattle hunter are at least kinda winnable.  You can even snowball hard over a quest rogue if you're lucky.

    Overall, I played about 110-120 games (at work right now, can't check the exact number).  I stuck with tempo mage probably 75% of the games.

     Thanks,

    My only terrible matchups are Odd Rogue and any Shaman... Druids and Warlocks are roll overs so hopefully I keep on facing them on the climb. Hit rank 2, now so we're getting there slowly but surely. 

    How did your Tempo Mage do against Druids?

     Surprisingly well, although I think a lot of it is because of luck.  If you can Counterspell literally anything (except that pesky coin), you should be able to steam roll them.  If you have the option, it's almost always better to play the Counterspell before playing Explosive Runes.

    I did face a lot of druids and warlocks in the climb, as well as some odd rogues.  You can get lucky against odd rogue with your hunter, but yeah it's definitely a tough matchup.  Just keep on going!  The end is in sight!

     Thanks!

    I climbed to rank 5 on EU Standard ladder with Mecha'Thun Priest, fairly consistent and easy enough to pilot.

    I took Combo Mecha'Thun Priest to rank 5 earlier this season.

    posted a message on Do you have fun playing this game?

    I've been playing since closed beta and I'm having the more fun playing HS this expansion than I have in ages.

    I stopped playing a few expansions ago and came back for Boomsday, currently sitting at rank 3 on standard ladder. The meta is really diverse, there's a ton of control, combo and aggro decks going around and I'm having a blast laddering.

    The grind is real this month...

    Never hit Legend before but decided to push this month. I'm glad the meta's so diverse on the EU ladder but it makes the climb difficult. Having decent success with Deathrattle Hunter, at Rank 4, 2 stars just now with only 2 losses since rank 5, no stars.

    I never greet people, I went through a spell of losing to everyone I greeted so consider it bad luck now.

    I'm usually a pretty rational person so I have no idea why this bothers me!

    I hit Rank 6 pretty quick and have been taking a few days off to relax in order to build up the mental stamina to tackle Rank 5 down to Legend. 

     

    In real terms, based on the number of games it actual takes, unless you get a godlike 25 games,  Rank 5 is actually only about halfway to legend.

    Mind if I ask what deck you used to get you there? That's a pretty fast climb, nice job.

    Secret paladin and tempo mage and occasionally dragon priest. Depending on what the ladder was like at each rank I'd switch.

     

    Note: Aggro secret paladin is better for early ladder but, a midrange paladin with big late game threats like boom and Tirion, that also plays challenger has been my No.1 deck this season. 

    Challenger.deck is too one dimensional, using it as a play in a more rounded midrange deck is what you want.

    Feel free to add me, I'll mostly be doing testing and theory this week while pysching up for the weekend charge at legend haha.

    Cheers man, might hit you up. I'm currently rank 13 with Dragon Priest, not doing too badly seeing as I only play 3 or 4 games a day. Tried a straight secret pally and hated it, might try a more mid range.

    Bouncing between 14, 13 and 12 at the moment. Kinda tough meta. Gonna switch back to Tempo Mage, the classic version, again, as it's good against paladins, hunters and priests.

    I'm exactly the same, just been knocked from 13 to 15... You on EU? The meta's so varied, it's hard to pick a deck that will have decent match ups :/

    Going for good old Demon Zoo and Dragon Priest this month with Control Warrior if Priest doesn't live up to the control.
