Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Someone tell me if Hungry Crab kills Finja (in stealth mode) before I go make 2 of them.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

you can't target a stealth minion, so no.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

the only minion that will kill finja stealthed (other than deathwing) is stampeding kodo and it's only guaranteed if he's the only guy on board.

other ways to kill him are much tougher/more expensive; deadly shot, flamestrike, equality/consecrate, avenging wrath (need to get lucky), pyro/equality, mass dispel, shadow word horror, dragon fire, devolve, volcano or 2 lightning storms, felfire/shadow flame combos/brawl, YOGG (lucky).

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Dumpster legend meta is so dumb. Trying to play some priest and I'm chain queueing into Jade druids. This guy was running 2x auctioneer 2x primordial Drake 2x earthen scales. I cannot imagine why he's rank 5k.....

I think Firebat was just playing that deck and was telling people it was great.

Add the unstealth minion + something else to the expensive ways.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Hungry Crab was one of the first epic cards I ever got, and I dusted it. That, Ravenholdt Assassin, Validated Doomsayer are the only non-legendaries I'm missing, and I have almost all the legendaries.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

It must be a sign of a good player if you're golden by level 60. I hit level 60 on a character and I'm like 150 wins from golden

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

faster games -> less cards played -> less xp.

also never play arena.

How are you liking TBK? I've been doing pretty well with dragon priest. Glimmeroot and operative make for some interesting games.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Feel like TBK is the best tech choice for priest right now. Primordial drake just ****s all over priest and it's fairly common between druid/paladin/taunt warrior. Lot of people run ooze as the tech choice, but I have never felt dragon priest needed it.

The comparison is valid when it comes to what decks people are playing at different ranks. People play hunter 16% outside of legend and 10% inside of it. I'm sure if you had the data of people play most of the month in the top 100 it might even be less than that. If you watch those streams you sometimes don't see them queue into hunters at all or 1 or 2 in however long they stream.

Bolded isn't relevant. Hunter is a bad match up for quest rogue, not all aggro. Go look at the VS report.

Your argument was quest rogue is good because Xixo is playing it at a high level. Even if the only real difference is 15-16% to 10% hunter population differences it will effect his winrate positively. It's 5 or 6 matches out of 100 that are more likely favorable to him. If you cannot grasp that simple concept, good lord.
Lol you're talking out of your ass.

Interesting. I guess you beat mages anyway but ooze has been amazing against all the medivhs and PW in the dumpster.

No. I am not. Go watch high legend streams and record the # of hunters they face. Do the %s. You can try to be dismissive all you want, but you're just flat wrong when you make silly claims like quest rogue is a good deck because Xixo plays it against easier match ups than the rest of the populace.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

You are both super annoying. Damn this was such a great community with a lot of strong players. Unfortunately most of them seem to have moved on from hearthstone. Currently this is kind of a **** show anyway so carry on I guess.

Is that actually how XP is granted, based on time of game + number of cards played? I've always wondered how that worked

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

That just seems wrong to me but I can't think of another way off the top of my head so meh. I mean, it seems analogous to playing an MMO like WoW and getting xp just for swinging your sword rather than for killing the mob.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

This game is such a ****ing troll. He has almost no outs in Arena, 1 life and I'm Mage. Yoggs and flamestrikes my board, draws cards 3, armors face and does nothing to his board. Seriously **** you in the ass Yogg.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

With my priest deck I have played 26% warrior, since i put an ooze in my deck I've faced 0 warriors in 13 games. That's 26% warrior even with 13 games without facing one, most faced opponent by a margin still.

Never tech against anything.
