    posted a message on So wanna talk bout the new "leaked" Battlepass for HS ?

    Is there anywhere on the official Blizz forums to voice opinion on this?  I'd very much like to say "Please Don't".

    If it is Blizzard's plan to try to lure back CCG players who relegated Hearthstone to a number two game then it is a very bad idea. They will just play even less. One of advantages of Hearthstone that you can play once per three days and get a decent chunk of monthly rewards but they are taking it away.

     In my opinion, HS is an extremely slick and accessible number two/casual game, and I like it exactly like this.  As a competitive PC game, I find the randomness (or maybe really it's just losing to randomness) super frustrating - whereas sat on the sofa with an Ipad completing daily quests I'm absolutely fine to get my ass handed to me by a ridiculous draw or a lucky Puzzle Box etc.  Striving to be the best possible - or at least the most prolific - hearthstone player I can be isn't really something that appeals

     Does anyone know how many games/hours it might take to grind out the 1000-2000 exp required to go up a level?  Presumably this is the same exp mechanic as for unlocking golden classic cards.  My Illidan is only about level 30 so I'm guessing I'd be nowhere near getting to the end of that chart over 4 months :(

    For me, HS is brilliant as a pick up and play for 10-20mins at a time, and occasionally - once or twice a month maybe - I'll play for 2-4 hours and gain constructed ranks, usually stopping at rank 5 / D5.   I really enjoy it as a casual game that I can pick up more competitively from time to time, and by completing quests and buying preorders, I'm never short on cards for constructed play.

    The proposed system potentially sounds great for those who are truly dedicated to HS and want to play it as their main game.  But, if you want to treat it as a light, casual experience for short sessions most of the time, this system is going to screw you over - as you'll no longer be able to pick up a lot of easy gold from the quests, and be forced to grind for experience instead.

    For me, replacing quests with this sort of system could easily kill my interest in HS.

    posted a message on Kael'thas and Puzzle Box of Yogg-Saron are a problem

    When you're playing against it, treat puzzle box as if it were a 10 mana guaranteed board wipe with card draw and it should no longer irritate you.

    When Yogg Saron was in standard, there were far more obnoxious token generators (esp Call of the Wild) as a proportion of the card pool, plus you'd get the spell count up to more like 15-20.  It was frequently a massive tempo reversal, puzzle box with the current set of cards doesn't do that as often.

    posted a message on Pre-opening of pre-ordered Scholo packs, What did YOU get? :D

    Opened a mediocre haul of legendaries from 165 packs total (only 8) plus preorder goldens and login freebee to make 11.

    But, am still very happy as I opened every epic twice which has never happened to me before.  I think I’m done opening Scholomance packs and will craft from here.

    posted a message on Unused Arena Tickets

    They've always persisted across releases for me.  I've not completed an arena run in over 2 years so accumulated all of the free tickets from cancelled runs, Tavern Brawl handouts etc.  Further, given you got some of these by buying the latest preorder, it would seem super unfair for blizz to cancel them when the expansion rolls!

    posted a message on 5 golden packs

    If theyre like classic packs, it will be a separate pity timer.

    The only strategy I could think of was to open the golden packs first, then craft any golden legendaries or epics you really want on day 1 (to prevent opening normal versions of these cards), then open normal packs.

    posted a message on New Neutral Legendary Card Revealed - Keymaster Alabaster

    Does this interact horribly with Bombs ?  Or just skip them?  I suspect your hand gets filled up with 1 mana bomb cards :(

    Feels like a really powerful card in a vacuum but as others point out, the reality of playing this against hyper aggro is that you'll be dead first, and the reality of playing this against hyper control is that they'll somehow go over the top of it. 

    Lich King is a very similar card (it's big and generates undercosted cards in hand) but crucially that had taunt.  Just like Lich King it will feel absolutely amazing playing this in clunky midrange mirrors or at low ranks.

    Do we know yet how the timing of spellburst works with Defile?  The extra defile casts might all happen before spellburst triggers

    I had this problem recently on Nox and got round it it by using Bluestacks (also free).

    Just played a few games with Twin Slice and Cobalt Spellkin in Wild Odd DH.  This is not a nerf.

    posted a message on Bonus Stars ARE lost if you don't play

    A thought on this - a player who plays a lot and previously ground out to high ranks on a middling WR may have a pretty shoddy MMR but will have been given a high number of stars based on previous ranking.  If that player skips a month, he'll then be placed only on his MMR, so might drop a lot of stars.

    posted a message on Bonus Stars ARE lost if you don't play

    I was lazy this season and didnt get to the end of my stars (9) in Wild.  For the new season got 10 stars after finishing at low Plat/maybe even high Gold. 

    No clue - only theories I have are that (1) maybe it's somehow lagged and using last month's data or (2) the low legend players this month on average tanked their MMR so that my MMR looks pretty decent after essentially not playing.
