I didn't use the letter H.
Because this card is in Chinese.
Someone's playing 4D Chess over here...

Look, I'm hyped for the new hero skins. But, 1000 wins seems a bit steep for me, as I've yet to get anywhere close to the 500 wins required for golden portraits. And if that's not enough, my least played ranked class, warrior, has (in my opinion) the coolest new skin.
I’ve got 23k+ wins and all the skins.....Try harder maybe
I think us beta players should all be at least at 2000k+ wins for each class or, if 1 class was preferred, maybe around 10k+ wins for it
Open Beta player here, my highest amount of class wins is 549... My next highest class is 460 with my lowest at 80. Reached Legend, hit Rank 5 every month, some of us just don't play as much as you do.

I just want to comment on weapon removal, and specifically Ooze/similar effects.
IMO Ooze's effect is too strong and prevents archetypes like Thief Rogue from being playable. Hear me out.
Lackey Rogue with Waggle Pick is strong for many reasons, some of those reasons being pure burst damage via Waggle Pick and Leeroy. There's not much thought to it - you go face, gg.
Because of how strong the deck is, everyone techs in weapon removal via Ooze/Harrison (and Weapons Project in Warrior). That means you can't play Thief Rogue with Spectral Cutlass, a major point around which a lot of versions of the deck are built, and a primary way not dying to aggro/midrange. Say what you will about "Cutlass is broken because I died once to an 8-attack lifesteal Cutlass" but a majority of the time, you're using that huge weapon for removal and survival. Not to mention balancing weapon charges against 'other class' card generation.
Oh but because Lackey Rogue is stupidly strong and everyone runs double Ooze, guess what - Cutlass is unplayable, which makes the deck unplayable.
Cutlass is fine because of the skill and intricacy of plays.
Make Ooze a glorified Bloodsail Corsair and make Waggle Pick start with 1 durability instead of 2.
a) make good weapons overpowered. The only reason why Cutlass isn't just Kingsbane 2.0 is because of it's weakness to weapon removal. You can't just nerf all weapon removal just because you want a single deck that happens to rely on weapons to be playable (not to mention that most people don't run double weapon removal, at least not one the regular ranks)
b) it would also completely kill Waggle Pick for no reason (it needs a nerf not removal)
The entire point of cutlass is that it's infinite damage + healing, but it gets countered by weapon removal. You're basically want to remove an intended counter just because you want to win more with a meme deck. That's like saying nerf Mountain Giant because I want to play Heal Druid
Ooze was not so polarizing as a Classic card in metas where you had relatively few and relatively straightforward weapons. What strong weapons are you referring to that would be broken if Ooze was nerfed?
Perhaps this was a bit of an anomaly but I queued into Giants Mage and Lackey Rogue this morning, both running double Ooze. This was not at top 200 legend though, I guess that's what you meant by "normal ranks." I understand if my experience at Rank 8 is completely meaningless and irrelevant.
Waggle Pick would not be unplayable with 1 durability. Why do you think that?
I'm sure everyone will love it when weapon removal is nerfed and Warrior buff their Wrench Calibers duribility with Captain Greenskin, Upgrades etc... Super fun.

Imagine having a blast while playing a deck as one-dimensional as big priest.
I've never played it before and over the past few days I've been playing it and having fun... Sorry that blows your mind ;)
Some of the interactions are totally busted, especially with Vargoth so it's been enjoyable to try them out!

I mean, I appreciate the effort in trying to bring some variety in this currently wretched meta, but how is a non-Galakrond, the Tempest deck a "hottest" Shaman deck right now?

The post seems to be kind of wasted, cause the nerfs will hit just in a couple of hours...

Nerf things, sure. Including (but not limited to) multiple Shaman cards. But lets stop with this HOF nonsense. It was only done for non Classic cards once. It set a bad precedent.

So, I'm not responding to any one post, but rather this meme in general that seems to have taken root here about "Blizzard wants a 50% win rate".
Obviously that's true, and that has been true for every card game in the history of man kind, but apparently some folks have taken that quote to mean that they are manipulating which decks get paired against others in service of that goal. I would quote the many, many times that others have illustrated how such a matchmaking function is not necessary to achieve the 50% goal at a population level, but that won't do any good, because these people believe this objective is directed to the individual level.
In other words, obviously they are shooting for a 50% win rate across the population of gaming, in the sense that the idea is you will raise to a level where you are playing equally matched individuals, at which point you will naturally average around 50%. They are NOT shooting for everyone to have the same wins and losses regardless of play, deck selection, etc.
But rather than repeat the obvious truths that fall on deaf ears, I will come to my own personal salt. My salt is, why won't any of you explain how the devious machinations to force everyone into a 50% win rate fail so often for so many people? Why do I (along with many, many others) routinely end a season flirting with 70% win rates, regardless of having played a wide variety of decks at high legend play? How is that possible under your paradigm of how the game is organized? And we aren't talking one season of performance, we are talking about years of consistent play. And no, I'm not a streamer. And no, I'm not a whale spender. So none of those tertiary theories come into play.
Meanwhile, even more salty am I because today is a sad day. I knew months ago, when Hearthpwn came under new management, that one of my favorite pass times had come to an end.
Kaladin had left the building. He had followed the old team other to that indy website they set up, and thus, I had to make do with second tier salt from the likes of Evil_B and Pathod. No offense to either of those; I'm sure both would agree that they are nowhere near as consistent salt miners as the legendary Shrute/Kaladin.
But, I always consoled myself with the knowledge that I could always pop over to the indy site and read his salt posts if I got desalinized enough. Today, however, I noticed that he seems to have disappeared from the mirror salt thread as well.
It is a sad day for tear drinkers everywhere.
