    @ObiFett

    I encountered this variation of the deck which can OTK you after two completed parts of the Quest. Not yet sure how viable it is, but perhaps there are some lessons and combo's to gather from it?

    Battlegrounds is awful now. Winning is basically determined by three RNG rolls that have nothing to do with the player.

    Do you get to choose a decent hero?
    Do you get an easy to complete quest?
    Is the reward for the quest powerful?

    Are the special dailies all only related to Battlegrounds? I don't bother with Battlegrounds.

    Hmm, I actually found BGs to be less bad than I thought before the patch release. There is some skill in choosing the correct quest and how to play for quest completion vs normal strategies.

    I'd like them to give quests the darkmoon prize treatment though and just have them every other game or so.

    Yes, it's a 3 quest BGs chain to nudge people toward the new and (fiscally) improved BGs.

    Here's a perfect example:

    Do you get to choose a decent hero? Yes Sir Denathrius has to be A-tier, right?
    Do you get an easy to complete quest? Yes One was play Elementals/Quilboar, the other was play battlecry minions
    Is the reward for the quest powerful? Ridiculously "End of turn effects trigger twice (gain a Charlga)" and "Only need two copies for a golden"

    It required zero effort to roll the lobby and get this where my board is getting 280 stats a turn:
    c3ziitrw7d26.png


    Its not even skillful decision making at this point, its pure RNG based on your hero and quest options. Garbage.

    Sire is more like B tier, probably entirely because it's easy to whiff on quests.

    Denny is B-tier. He lacks armor, so he's both fragile and has hard-to-complete quests.

    there was a quest offered to me that was spend 50 gold to gain +1 attack on minions of different types each turn like what is that why does that exist why is it SO BAD

    like lmfao the balance disparity between good quests and bad quests is fucking atrocious

    i've tried to play a bit since the patch dropped. i've tried to go "maybe it's not that bad. maybe i can still have fun with it." it really does fucking all come down to highrolling quests now. that's it. the game is determined on turn 4, period the fucking end. this is the worst meta. worse than arcane cannons. worse than buddies (and holy SHIT i fucking despised buddies). like this is it, i'm done. i leave every BG game feeling angry as fuck. it just doesn't feel fair anymore, there's no way to win against someone with the better quest highroll. it's no longer fun. i cannot get any fun from this stupid horseshit anymore. even when i win, it's like, okay sure i rolled the entire fucking lobby with my ridiculous quest and it was brainless and faceroll.

    fuck, man. shit. they destroyed BGs. not to mention how goddamn awful it feels being only able to pick two heroes and your choices are shit like lich baz'hial or fuckin' deathwing

    I found an annoying interaction in BGs

    Theotars Parasol quest reward gives a minion +8 health and stealth at end of turn

    Zapp Slywick doesn't give a single shit about the stealth and will quite happily attack the stealthed unit (killed my baron and lost me the game)

    After continuing to play Mage for the past couple weeks after the nerfs, I'm not feeling a huge hit to the power level of the deck. Magister Dawngrasp still feels strong, but fair. The battlecry value matters more, and the hero power isn't busted, but still good. It's very easy find yourself with a 6-damage hero power.

    The Sanctum means I have to be a little more conservative with my freeze effects. But honestly? I almost never finish games with KT, and the deck probably works fine without him. I'd guess the "big" mage version is still the better mage deck out there right now. I'd craft it if I had the resources to spend on more mage cards.

    Definitely one of those Immovable Object/Unstoppable Force situations. I also thought stealth would protect against Zapp, but nope.

    I think the only thing stealth ever did was prevent players from targeting the minion. Anything that targets or attacks on its own can hit stealth just fine.

    Anyone else seeing that their journal is marked with an exclamation point, like you have a quest reward or achievement to claim, but there's nothing actually there? I've had this since the last balance patch and I can't figure out why. Not sure if it's a bug or something I'm missing. Spoilered for huge:

    Friendly reminder that Heroic Brawliseum is a gold sink scam, you need 6 wins to make back the 1000 gold investment and 95% of participants don't make it to 6 wins.

    It’s a returning big too, happened for a few weeks/months during the past year.

    Sadly 3-4 shop pop ups every week that fuck up you trying to actually play the game are not bugs.

    It shows up only if every single person in the lobby picks a hero with a Buddy. Note that since Elise changed, her buddy is gone, so she’s not one of the applicable heroes.

    Woof, finally got my BG 1st Place to get the special quest reward. Spoilered for big:
    6ZKMe9q.jpg

    For the record, Glory of Combat passive and Turn 4 quest reward was Ghastly Mask (Get 'Famished Felbat'; EoT effects trigger twice)

    Funny thing is my last 1st place win was for the previous Top 4 win special quest. Like, are we that stickler of giving away freebies that you couldn't have counted that 1st place win for both quests? :rotate:

    - Opted for Rustrot and Starfish instead of Frenzied Felwing x2
    - Just one Pufferfist to add Greenskin for some mid-game beef and power-up a Swordfish (and luckily a Buccaneer boost, too)

    Took a few attempts to get over the hump; got lucky on the deciding match when the opposing player (Hunter) played a Turn 3 Dirty Rat and summoned my Hooktusk out and they didn't have an answer for it :sweat_smile:

    Will try to see how far I can go but it sounds like Rogue Pirate is dropping off so this will probably be my best showing for a while.

    I made a stupid secret control mage and I don't know that it's particularly good but boy it sure seems to cause people problems. The new mage secret, if played at the right time, is absolutely back-breaking. Minions do not get their battlecries and it's just a humongous tempo hit. It's hilarious watching people throw down their colossal minions, watch them vanish, and then immediately concede.

    Yeah, playing against generated Mage secrets (which not just Mages can get) is going to be super annoying for the next year and a half because you have to deal with the possibility of both Counterspell and Counterminion.
