But yea they dont seem to be doing much except pushing face dmg and as a combo card with cold blood. Iíd want to leave them in, iím closer to taking out sinister strikes. But every card in this deck just feels ok to me except akama. Lillian is a much better card (i think thatís the name of it).

Thereís starting to be more meta hate towards this style of deck, even druids are running swipes now. So maybe this got too popular.

Iíll still try to take it to legend because it has a very miracle style of play to it that is fun when you win.

I reckon 10k bgs is probably roughly equivalent to old school hs legend. Gonna blame top 4/win ratio on phone play.



Not sure there are any bg players posting anymore but ran this smurf up to 10k with a much better win rate and it felt good so thought I'd post it.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Did that account have the extra heroes unlocked? Since the reset I’ve been hovering around 8k and I can’t really see myself spending money. Probably just gonna start saving my gold for that each expac now.

It did. I'm pretty averse to giving Blizzard money after playing cardstone for years but the battle pass seems fine to me. If it resets after 4 months and you're even playing 5 hours/week that's £15 for 80 hours of entertainment which is way better value than I get out of netflix or whatever. They should definitely display how long is left before each reset though, I know a few people paid for the pass a day or two before the reset and just lost the perks. It's def possible to climb without them though. Think the most impressive thing I've seen in this game was bebe easily holding ~1 on asia for ages with no perks.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Congrats on your 10k abysmal. I've tried playing BG a few times on my phone and can attest to what a nightmare it can be.

The new meta in constructed is pretty wild. I'm playing a Face Hunter deck and getting out-aggro'ed a lot of the time, getting beat so fast I'm not even sure what hit me. Time to study the new cards I guess and figure out some counters. Or maybe learn how to play a control deck.

Nerfs!

https://news.blizzard.com/en-us/hear...-2-patch-notes

Kael'thas now every 3rd spell you cast costs 1

Mindrender Illucia now 3 mana

Some interesting battlegrounds changes too.

Megasaur and cannon both removed. Beast tribe seems to have been reworked and nat palge is changed.

Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Lmao of all the possible nerfs i cant even fathom why mindrender illucia made it to the chopping block.

I figured that kaelthas nerf was coming. I might just get free dust out of it, I never like playing decks that run that card.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Kael'thas was a freebie iirc. It is odd that they picked only those two cards to nerf. Betting there's going to be more coming soon.

RIP murlocs in BG. Maybe for the best as nearly everyone in my games was going for that same build. Hooray for cannon being removed too.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

So does anybody know how ranking conversion works? I reached Diamond 5 for the first time and wondered how it compared to the old ranking. Is that a 3 or a 2? My highest previous ladder finish was an 8 I think

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Itís kind of like the equivalent of previous rank 5 because you get bonus stars for win streaks all the way to it, meaning theoretically with enough volume you will hit the rank no matter what.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

It’s equivalent but now there are like 4-5 times as many legend folks.

This I did not know. I'm prepared not to feel special now if I hit legend

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Nah itís still hard. Iíve only hit it once with the new system, sadly. With the old system it was like automatic.

But i dont put in the volume i used to, so thereís that

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

This is why i dont hit legend lately

Was 2 wins away and queue into 3 bomb control warriors in a row, the absolute nut low matchup for aggro stealth rogue

Then a libram paladin where my starting hand is 2 cold bloods and a sinister strike and i go brick, brick, brick, brick

I have the worst luck the closer I get.

Fookin finally. I win streaked 5 in a row at the end vs 5 control decks - 2 control warrior, 2 priest, and the boss fight was a control demon hunter (LOL)

Better than last month when i reverse climbed from boss fight twice. Jfc.

It was actually pretty easy this month. Barely played, and doing some rough math I think i played less than 100 games total. Went aggro rogue the entire way. Legit deck, very few weaknesses. Also think this is my first legend with rogue.

Libram paladin has no bad matchups. Literally none.
