Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

not sure I've had divine shield murloc boards that were more powerful than this dragon build.

Sometimes it's nice to hit the nuts.

Yeah that'll win the game lol. Good thing you hit poison on that 134/126 so it could one shot stuff.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Took me 5 games as Druid to complete my quest to play 3 games as Druid.

I am quite perturbed at the inaccuracy of the quest description.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Wow, a 134/126, especially without a triple brann.

Aceium, for that kind of quest, you need to either win or lose (die) or last 9 or 10 turns (forgot which one of these it is). If you concede before turn 9/10, you won't get credit towards the quest.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Are battleground perks worth it? Just started playing again and don't want to fall into the ranked grind..

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Being able to select from four heroes instead of two heroes is massive, given the importance of having a good hero. So I think it's worth it for that alone, even if you don't play that much imo.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Call it a mild form of OCD or something like that. It just bothers me when things are not what they appear to be. I agree that it’s much simpler to say “Play 3 games as a Druid, Hunter, or Mage” than it is to say “Participate in 3 games that meet the following criteria: 1. You play a Druid, Hunter, or Mage 2. The game must conclude with one player reaching 0 health OR reach 9-10 turns OR etc...”

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I think Blizzard doesn't want people simply queuing into a game and immediately conceding to get credit towards the quest. That being said, the wording is definitely not intuitive and I think I actually figured it out by dumb luck /experimenting.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

If it’s against fandoms, blizz doesn’t care if the game lasts one round and they quit against you. If it’s a friend, then the rules are in place to avoid quickly doing them by quitting.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Consistently gaining mmr helps too

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Nice job. Unfortunately they're going to **** it all up tomorrow (at least at high ranks) with quad queues https://playhearthstone.com/en-gb/news/23509390. Streamers are already picking people to play with so if you queue at 10k+ tomorrow you're likely to be playing against 4 people colluding to power level/not damage each other/share information which will make solo climbing impossible. From tomorrow BG's is essentially a team game. Going to at least give it a go so if anyone at a decent rank on EU wants to play then lmk. The new heroes look interesting at least.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I was just thinking today that if i really put the effort in i could possibly get on the leaderboard and that would make me very happy. I'll guess I'll just quit bgs instead

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I'm so glad miracle rogue is back. This current iteration has like 47 different win conditions. Every game I'm not really sure how I'm gonna win, I just know I might get there literally any turn.

But god it sucks when you have a horrible hand as miracle rogue. When you're running great it's amazing.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

New patch is out

Apparently if you triple the new tier 1 minion micro mummy you get frozen out the game, so don't do that

Played 4 hours, got offered 1 new hero (top 8 with barov) and lost 500 mmr. Did break my triples record but still managed to come second to cat.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I cant get over what a horrible ****ing idea battlegrounds parties is. Like, whoever thought of that should never work again. That’s how bad it is.

Why? How does it even help the business? How does it make the experience better for ANYONE?

I hate Bg’s and it still triggers me.

I only played TFT a couple times but when I see my friends in the client queuing up in groups in the League client, I always wondered how that even works in a ranked ladder system. I never knew how it really worked but it sounds like it's the balls that my instinct thought it was. That sucks lol.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Wow when you hit legend the month before, you get 2 stars from diamond 5 to legend. LOL that’s so ridiculously easy. Already hit it barely trying.

I dunno what’s the point of having a bunch of scrubs at garbage legend but at least they started me at rank 2000 instead of 8000 this month.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I haven't played on my main account since they added groups, just been smurfing it on eu. Haven't noticed too much cheating but reckon it's a lot higher around 11k mmr. Hoping they come to their senses tho.
