    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 :(

    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

    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

    posted a message on Heroic Brawliseum is This Week's Tavern Brawl

    It's even worse than that - dust is much worse than gold, and midway through an expansion most players would much rather keep 100g in the bank rather than open a pack.

    So, you're looking at more like 6 wins to break even in terms of real value for 1000g

    The rewards are so stacked to the top end it's just not worth thinking about unless you reckon you've got a shot at getting 11 or 12 wins.  This compounds the problem even more, as it means that weaker players will be rightfully put off.

    Been playing on IOS, haven't seen any Nellie crashes.   

    Anyone know if Brann/Azshara still crashes the game or not?

    posted a message on Did I face a cheater?

    Someone did the Brann/Azshara combo on me just now and it froze my client, By the time I'd logged back in, it looked as though they'd managed to get an extra turn out of it.

    I think if you face it, you have to immediately restart your client to have any chance.

    posted a message on Anyone else got locked out of Hearthston on Amazon App Store?

    Thanks for that - sadly I'm pretty sure I can't fix this by installing HS through Google Play.  AFAIK if I want to be able to use amazon coins, I have to install through the amazon app store app, and that thing is absolutely convinced that I already have the latest version :(

    Suspect I've hit an edge case by playing on lots of different devices and that I'm locked out of android until Blizz drop another version.
