Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

you're right.

It's just so stupid - what counterplay is there to this card? How in the world does blizzard think it's ok that the only way to have a top tier deck is to invest 80% of your deck to 1-4 cost cards and only the exceptional 5-10?

Toki for example - a {6} 5/5 is overcosted by 1, giving a free legendary from the previous sets is really fun and usually strong. However after getting run over by aggro/tempo decks it's just yet another card you remove.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Plenty of broken stuff out there to complain about, not sure I’d put a vanilla 2/2 at the top of the list.

I mean, mage can cheat 10 mana starting on turn 6, aggro has to have something.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Zeddy had an amazing post on Reddit about the effect of DH on ladder. Something HAS to be done, as of now that game is completely ruined.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Blizzard obv won't admit it but they very clearly overtuned DH so it would be strong and not end up dumpster due to the lack of sets/cards. It would look like **** if they released DH and they were never played. **** this.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Yea but zeddy is always doom and gloom about everything. Itís bad, but not nearly as bad as midrange shaman meta. Or even secret paladin meta.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I don't think that one class making up 50-66% of the meta is healthy.

Generally, when that's the case, that class is imbalanced and feel ridiculous to play against. It leads to a feeling that you're either A) Part of the problem, B) playing something that's trying to counter the problem, or C) trying to have fun by beating your head against a metaphorical wall - but unfortunately there isn't any way to lose your way down to where the majority of people aren't playing Demon Hunter.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

You guys seems forgetting people play DH also because it's a new class.
People have been playing for years, of course everyone is playing the new class.
I think priest is way more depressing to play against and I just insta concede out of boredom.
Anyway I am playing quite a bit since new x-pack, last month was all shaman shenanigans, pally and warrior, trying to get the 500 wins with these (close with shaman and in the 380 with the other).
I am the type of player that don't mind playing garbo decks and suprising the ennemy.
I'm also the type that never made it to legend and I'm bad at the game

ps:I didn't play ranked for multiple expansions and I'm having fun atm with all the different niche decks.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Man priest wants me to kill Myself right now. Was grinding with secret rogue, highlander mage and egg priest and ugh, it’s awful to play priest. Rogue not so bad but it’s painful to play these games.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

As a priest main can confirm its horrible to play too. I dont have the cards for the highlander version, but even that looks horrible.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I miss the days of zoo and innervate yeti. Every deck besides demon hunter somewhat just goes super over the top eventually getting basically infinite free cards with no way to stop it.

just gonna stick to BGs

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

**** me I played 2 games today on my second account and both were against Priest. The one that played convincing infiltrator on 5, then psychopomp on 6, second psychopomp on 7 I lost it and roped the entire rest of the game.

Play that and then queue against another Priest the very next game. Makes you just want to uninstall.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Convincing infiltrator is an absolutely stupid card with the reborn mechanic. I hate that card. It rarely feels good to play it or play against it. Itís just obnoxious.

Now imagine playing wild and queueing into some dickhead playing BIG PRIEST. And it's like 27 of the 30 cards from the original list and Barnes doesn't even make the cut. It's mega tilting.
