    Now if they want to charge extra for portraits and cosmetics, that's fine whatever. The card economy is ridiculously overpriced and they know it. But as long as people keep buying this shit though, nothing will change. I'm sure the team hates this shit and just want to make a fun and silly game. Marketing and management are the one's making everything such a mess.

    The marketing team is very obviously going for the whale market. Usual mobile logic being the whales give more in a shorter period than most will give over their whole playtime. But people with that kind of "fuck you" money are very unlikely to care about "the poors'" gameplay experience relative to their own immediate satisfaction. They may get tired of the game on their own, but I wouldn't ever count on convincing them to stop being a hugely effective tactic for mobile gaming.

    why is one of the weeklies (the best one for exp) always "win 7 ranked games"

    that's horseshit

    isn't the whole point of the new daily/weekly system to allow for more freedom

    you can't even reroll it

    Came across this deck a few times on ladder and always lost to it. Decided to give it a spin and this deck just wins, 8-2 so far at the beginning of the season. It doesn't really have a win condition which is even more odd.

    I don't know how people are having success with Big Priest. Every game I just don't kill their stuff, Scream on 7, and they limp to their death a couple turns later.

    I noticed there are some XP achievements for Duels. Can those only be completed in the paid (heroic) Duels or can you get credit from the free ones?

    Yeah, he's strong, but not quite top tier because there are a lot of times you don't survive to the point where you can abuse an OP divine shield comp. And even then, some people will swap out for a Ghoul in the late game to screw you over.

    Her maps used to cost 3 gold, but at some point they were lowered to 2 gold which is a big deal, imo.

    It was in the most recent BG patch update, where like 10 of the bad heroes got buffed. She was indeed pretty trash up until a few weeks ago.

    You can save some time by watching dog on YouTube. In one of his recent videos he's playing 3 bg matches at the same time. Lucky for him he got in the same lobby with all 3, but it's still very insane. Don't watch if you get anxious easily.

    I don't know how he did it because I only saw the yt, not the live stream, but he used his main account, hafu's account and a third account. He said he had three instances of battlenet open, so there has to be a way to do it.

    Made it to Gold 3 this morning, my highest ranking. Hoping I can push over to Platinum 10 soon.

    Basically playing all Wild now because I don't have the pack luck on Standard cards nor do I want to pay any money. Rolling with Odd DH (sorry) and crafted my old buddy Patches again since he shows up in a bunch of Wild decks.

    Regarding the mini-set that's coming at some point, I assume that's all pack based and not adventure based?

    Yes, they basically just add new cards into the pool that can come from Darkmoon Faire packs. So you have to buy a bunch more packs to get the new cards.

    Don't apologize for playing Odd DH in Wild. You'll never be as horrible as the people who play Reno decks.

    I played against a Reno Priest in Wild who had the, uh, Convert? card that lets you add a copy of a minion to your hand. He was almost dead, then played Reno and that card so he could do it again later.

    Turns out Reno doesn't help much when you take 32 damage to the face all at once. :D Thanks, Rags!

    What's going on now, @Dibby ?

  • ronzoronzo Registered User regular
    The r/hearthstone subreddit is basically just still very pissed about the tavern pass changes, to the point were most of the daily posts are complaints about the new system, memes about how bad the new system is, “I’m quitting HS” and posts wondering how long blizzard is going to say silent.

    Maybe the engagement numbers and spending are still fine, but Reddit is likely one of the most populated communities for hearthstone and they don’t appear to be moving on from this issue. You definitely can’t tell a full expansion just came out.

    The main effect of all that in the long run will just be to tank the hearthstone sub, which, oh well. It’s been substantially unreadable the last few weeks unless you specifically wanna bitch about the tavern pass, and that kind of brigading usually winds up with the sub declining and/or splitting.

    I mean, I know this forum loves to hate on Reddit as a whole (most of the time for good reasons), but that subreddit was generally pretty good about discussing the game before this.

    I don’t know that it’s so much brigading as the part of the player base that uses Reddit is actually unhappy right now. The runeterra post maybe come the closest to brigading I guess?

    Like I said, I imagine blizzard is just waiting for all of it to blow over, and as long as the engagement numbers stay the same/go up, they probably will keep holding that position.

    this, but it's also just so much negativity that the entire subreddit is just constantly on fire and unusable, and it's literally permanently that gif from Community where Troy walks in with pizzas all happy and sees that the entire room is on fire and everything's Bad And Awful

    While I do agree that lots of people are genuinely unhappy with the tavern pass, I also think that being performatively unhappy with blizzard has just become the trendy thing to do and I don’t think there’s really a statement they can make that will change that.

    People who play/follow games have learned that kind of thing gets clicks and it predominates everywhere moderation doesn’t actively restrict it.

    I was playing around with Odd DH in wild and after hitting two Reno Priests that triplicated the sonofabitch, I tech'd in two copies of Boompistol Bully.

    Only had the chance to have it time out/work once once so far, but the needle scratch moment was pretty sweet when it happened.
