Title: Hearthstone AKA Magic: the Gathering for people too stupid for Magic: the Gather
Post by: PhantomCatClock on May 12, 2016, 11:25:02 PM
...ing.



That post probably should've gone in a dedicated Hearthstone thread but fuck it. Actually, no, I'm going to make one right now.

After hovering around rank 10 a lot in Hearthstone pre-Kraken, I finally, FINALLY found the decks that are gonna get me out of the rank ≤18 pit with the new Standard format. I can deal with new cards being added, but they took all my crutches away.

Also, made a N'Zoth, bought some packs, immediately get a golden N'Zoth. Don't get me wrong, the second I want a new legendary I'm gonna melt that fucker down (golden Jaraxxus is the only golden legendary for me) but for the time being HOOHEEHAHIHAHUE LOOK AT ALL THESE GOLDEN DEATHRATTLE FUCKERS



speaking of important personal accomplishments, I finally got to Harrison a Doomhammer. I had to wait until it was down to two durability because it was in my one deck that gets decent draw power, but still. It's the principle.


And now for our regularly scheduled circle jerk and competitive masturbating.

running out of arena gold pretty quickly

I used to be able to nearly break even but I seem to have gotten much worse since the new expansion

I am so intensely jealous of people who ever could make a profit in the arena. I'd watch Kripparrian/other YouTube arena tutorials, use tier lists, get my spells/minions and mana distributions down just right, HIT THE PERFECT CURVE AND



still go like 3-3



I just can't get arena. I'm trapped on Constructed and in fact I've just started spending my gold on card packs, now, for the last 1000g or so.

This week's brawl is so good for doing dailies. I've only been doing it for quests, and I'm at like 16 wins. I don't think I've ever played a brawl this much, except to try to beat Kel'Thuzad

LOOK WHO FINALLY GOT OUT OF HIS 4-3 RUT AND BEAT HIS 5-3 RECORD

okay, maybe not that impressive (http://www.heartharena.com/arena-run/fa5c44)

I was so close to winning that one and getting the better tier of rewards, but this is a step in the right direction

I hope you like mage and rogue

Paladin and warrior are great if you get an assload of weapons, or paladin's three super good class cards

Post by: BilliardBall10 on August 12, 2016, 09:26:21 PM
well, im usually a mage, because that was my starting class (plus the sexy lady), but im also playing as a paladin, since this is my favorite class: you are a swordsman, AND you can heal yourself as well... excellent!

Post by: PhantomCatClock on August 13, 2016, 04:05:09 AM
Paladin just got a semi-dank sounding heal card (http://www.hearthhead.com/card=39439/ivory-knight) in this week's wing of Karazhan. I'm not sure how competitive the card will actually turn out to be. Gonna have to wait and see it on ladder a bit. I'm pretty excited to see a Discover card kind of nudging someone to picking a spell that might cost more than one that'd really want, but then again there are some pretty insane synergies (http://www.hearthhead.com/card=594/lay-on-hands) I can imagine.

Post by: PhantomCatClock on August 13, 2016, 07:53:17 PM
Oh, but taking a step back to constructed play: the new expansion is one of those single-player campaigns and the first part is free. You get two great, if not exciting, cards from it.

I haven't touched this in months. I kinda feel silly because I was super into it before summer got here and then I just kinda lost interest.

The Old God's expansion just kinda killed it for me. Too much RNG bullshit for me to handle.

The new one has a its fair share of RNG, but it's weirdly balanced in a way I'm too dumb to explain, just feels alright. I think now's a great time to get into HS, especially if you have an old card collection, not because the meta decks are any less bullshit but because there's a lot more diversity and different deck archetypes you can make that actually kinda work
Title: Re: Hearthstone AKA Magic: the Gathering for people too stupid for Magic: the Gather

Another expansion, another half page in this thread.

So starting right now and for the next week or so
you get goodies just for logging into hearthstone.

Today it's just 50g, but you get card packs and other nice stuff culminating in a golden blue card for the next expac onnnn.. the fourth? I think Apr4.



Log in you nerds.

shaving with a guillotine
WHAT?!

im afraid that that's not how a proper pun works.

here's an example:

BB10: hey phantomcat, whats up?
phantomcat: the guillotine.

certainly, it would still be creepy as hell, but it would at least have a proper pun in it.

New expac dropped last week. On one hand everything seems super well balanced this time around, on the other that means there was no one legendary (rarest) card that looked so strong/fun that I just HAD TO CRAFT IT. There's a new single player mode (that's actually new this time) and, to copypaste something I've said to someone else:

If the last time you played Hearthstone was Naxxramas or vanilla, you can get the full current experience at no cost in the dungeon run mode with no pressure and no consequences

and also no reward, but it really is how I've played like 95% of my time this expansion


and that's not an exaggeration. If anything it's too low. I've played like four games on ladder and well over fifty in dungeon run. You don't use YOUR cards and it's (semi) curated so you really can get every kind of meta in your run

the little noises the creatures make when you summon them are fun and it feels like supplemental WoW lore. How would you (https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Spiked_Hogrider) have ever (https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Leatherclad_Hogleader) heard of the Hogriders (https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Tanaris_Hogchopper)?

I cleared three classes and almost cleared priest with an insane deck but despite having three C'thuns for 5mana each in my hand and board advantage, I Reverse Mr. Magooed my way to a loss against the final boss. It was like low roll after low roll after low roll and humbug.
