    Note that account deletion seems to be working again. It's likely that it was down not due to nefarious reasons, but rather the sheer volume of users using it.

    As an IT I can actually kind of sympathize

    I'm sure they allocated as little resources as possible to whatever systems handle account deletion and then were totally ill-prepared for the gaming version of a bank run

    And there's probably one wild-eyed harried disheveled dude in a datacenter somewhere going "I told you we needed more hosts in the account deletion cluster! I knew this would happen! You should have listened to me!"

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    I'm curious how many other companies have their actuaries crunching numbers about what their response should be if something similar happens to them.

    That’s a person who saw the traffic spike wrote a sticky note that says load balance account deletion cluster and calls out sick.

    To beat this week’s brawl:

    1) Pick Lazul
    2) get the treasure that reduces hero powers by one and gives you a second use per turn(making hers zero)
    3) draft as many sylvanas’s as you can. Use the spell that copies a minion and adds it to your deck on an enemy sylvanas
    4) summon endless 1/1 sylvanases for free.
    5) kill the horseman with his own head.

    Your wish is my suggestion...

    amq5gxu9h1yz.png
    Not a bad turn 2.

    Followed up by a decent turn 3.

    I take your head!

    5b86czc5v3dy.png
    Yup, that's x7 Sylvannas. Only drafted one, but got x2 Mirror and the Banana spell to go off. Also, I got the "Empty Loot Box" three times, which allowed me to keep my draft full of good cards instead of adding more garbage.

    Yeah, people are so mad they are jumping to conclusions now on Reddit and insist it's Blizzard way of trying to hold on to subs. As in can't unsubcribe if we disable the unsubcribe button.

    Which doesn't make any sense.

    I can at least understand people being mad for the decision to ban the championship winner, but this becoming a mob mentality that is striking out blindly at streamers and what is probably just technical issues.

    Best Friend Forever is a 1/1 with charge and taunt. If you have more than one in your hand and deck, they combine to make a bigger one, and you draw a card for each one in your hand (to replace the card that you just lost). If you have ten of them, you get a 1 mana 10/10 charger. If you have 20, you have a 1 mana 20/20 charger.

    A deck can have up to 20 of them carry forward between runs.

    So, you get one, and then use the Magic Mirror treasure to keep adding more to your deck. You then do runs where you get a lot of T1/T2 kills on bosses, and load times become the biggest limiting factor.

    Dr Boom seems fun (especially if you get the Treasure that makes your HP cost one less and can be used twice, with an elekk out you get to shuffle 8 bombs a turn into your opponents deck).

    Fun until the headless horseman's head comes off and renders the bombs all completely useless :-1:

    hey so i did this too, but without getting offered a single Sylvanas in the buckets

    thanks Magic Mirror 8-)

    (also, Banana Split on a 1/1 Sylv creates two 7/7s instead wowza!!)

    also, i found it very interesting that they offered you empty loot boxes! i found myself taking those quite a bit, actually, and not even because the other buckets were bad; it's because i wanted the consistency of having a smaller deck. i guess that was included to offset not having Bob, maybe? or maybe they're trying out something for the next Adventure. s'cool, tho.
