    posted a message on Mini set opinions

    Even if the cards look mediocre at first, it's almost always worth buying the mini set - you only need one of the legendaries to be playable for it to be worth it, and meanwhile you've insured yourself against opening the bad legendaries in the set.  

    However, in terms of gameplay, I'm not seeing a lot to get excited about other than the mage cards.  The two 'good' legendaries look like they're trying to keep you playing an actual game of hearthstone rather than annihilate the opponent's board or win on the spot, which is what top end stuff needs to do.  So many of the mini set commons/rares are total filler.

    Kinda wish they'd put in an "I can't be arsed with this, just give me the pack" button, or give you the pack for playing a game even if you lose.  After hitting a run of bad luck, that's 15 minutes I won't be getting back.

    Anyone notice that (in the UK at least), the cheapest rune denomination is the best value - 500 runes for 3.99 GBP?  Pretty sure that's an error

    Overall, this is a super annoying update and aside from a sunk cost of leftovers from an amazon coin bundle done for Nathria, I'm tempted to go FTP for a while

    posted a message on Announcing Runestones - With Usage and Frequent Questions

    There is a slight benefit to players, I think - provided you can purchase Runestones on the online blizz store, you can do foreign currency purchases on everything that uses runestones.

    Right now, foreign currency purchases aren't available on in-game shop bundles that don't appear in the blizz store.

    posted a message on Must craft legendaries from the new exp.

    Hunter, Skeleton Hero Power Mage, Denathrius Token Druid and Imp Warlock all seem like amazing decks to me, making these the ones to go for:

    Kel'Thuzad, the Inevitable

    Topior the Shrubbagazzor

    Kael'thas Sinstrider

    Imp King Rafaam

    Ara'lon

    Huntsman Altimor

    Obviously, Sire Denathrius and Prince Renathal would belong on the list, but they're free.

    posted a message on Fish or whale?

    The way modern freemium economy games tend to work, there's not a lot of difference between a 'whale' and a long standing FTP (or low spender) in terms of resources accumulated. 

    Someone who's played regularly for several years will have accumulated packs/gold/dust over time, which translates into having whatever decks they want on day 1 of an expansion - no different from a more recent player who spends money.  

    I've bought at least a cheap pre-order every set and rarely missed a daily/weekly quest or free pack, and hoarded cards.  Hardly makes me a whale in terms of spending (probably equivalent to a netflix sub) but getting a recent account to a similar position would require a really uncomfortable amount of money.

    posted a message on Grand Masters free packs bug

    I've always found the youtube packs much more prone to random failure than twitch, which let's you track exactly how much time it's logged.  With luck, you'll get the packs eventually, but be prepared that they might not arrive.  I missed one of the two packs last week for no good reason :(

    posted a message on Are you excited for the expansion?
    Quote from Shipmen >>

    No. I have not played the past expansion, nearly anything. I am maybe level 20 I don't remember. I uninstalled HS after Diablo Immortal. I was so pissed off with Blizzard for how bad this game went and how they have treated Diablo that I closed everything. I went in this website to check the new expansion, and it is not anything amazing for me (same stupid reprints). I did the subscription with Google Stadia. It is amazing for me (for less than 50 bucks I purchased Red Dead Redemption 2 and Cyberpunk 2077) I will never play anything from Blizzard again.

     

    They do deserve a massive slap for Diablo Immortal, and I really hope they've got all the mobile gouging shite out of their system so that D4 has a faint glimmer of hope of being an actual game.

    HS is still pretty cool though, don't torpedo your HS account just yet because you're pissed with Blizz.

    Agree in this case they should leave the cards you've seen revealed or identifiable in the UI somehow.  A decktracker is a massive help if you've just seen a large hand

    posted a message on New Warrior Legendary Card Revealed - Remornia, Living Blade

    Feels like an awful lot of gimmick to ultimately deal 4 damage, 3 times.  I'm not imagining you get a second turn with it very often.

    Lokholar the Ice Lord does a very similar job but punches a lot harder

    Smothering Starfish is cool.  You lose to anyone who gets cute and goes control with discover effects, but you hammer pogos.

    Can only assume that they do not plan to do anything with this data yet other than collect it.  Doling out automated bans based on user feedback would be idiotic.

    Its a form of sabre rattle against bots and afk grinders for now, maybe they’ll use the data to trigger manual investigations later

    Now would be a bad time to start trying to max your battlepass with AFK grinding

    Not that it really matters, but did they break the default portrait for Tyrande et al in Mercenaries?

    I selected the new portrait out of curiosity and now shes stuck looking like a priest - telling me I need to get the default portrait from packs.

    posted a message on [Connection Issues] WTF is this?!

    I have 2 wireless access points at home, and simply moving around the house will cause HS to fail when the Ipad (2015 Ipad pro) switches from one access point to another.  Worst part is that it tries to reconnect itself and gets stuck - so you have to manually kill and restart the app.

    It is satisfying when you make a jank deck to complete a quest and then accidentally win a couple of ranked games with it
