Lols. (Video below.)

On a wider note I'm really enjoying this expansion, Blizz seem to have got the meta into a pretty good place, although I wish we could eradicate Jade Druid from the face of the earth. Quest Rouge I can live with.

My current favourite deck is CORPSE FLOWER MIRACLE ROGUE, which I posted the deck list for a page or two back. Has a decent chance against most other decks, from aggro to control to secret decks etc, and takes a fair bit of skill to pilot correctly.

I fancy having a go at this deck here, but would need to craft Hemet and 1600 dust is a bit harsh for a 'single use' legendary.

Welcome to 2 months ago : viewtopic.php?p=948840#p948840

Corpse flower is really annoying because it buggers up the best removal cards i have

Brawl kills it so it goes back to hibernation mode and even Vanish does not get rid of the damn thing !

I have switched two of my cards in the rogue quest now to Stonehill Defenders - if i can bounce them its some free taunt minions (and after crystal they are all 5/5's) if not it puts something in the way between the enemy and my face

The Mage quest stuff seems very quiet now - the only stuff i'm struggling with is

Corpse flower (because i cant get rid of the damn things)
Jade Druid (they are pulling cheap 6/6 and 7/7 cards out quickly)
Shamen 'rush' decks (with a few basic minions and the totem or de-evolve my defenses)

I'm still mostly playing arena, and occasionally casual. Still see a lot of Quest Rogue in ranked around the end I play, and even with Dirty Rat I've still only seen it once fail to get out the Crystal Core by turn 6 (and usually turn 5 followed by insta-death turn 6), which just makes it boring. I could feasibly set up a deck directly aimed at stopping that, but it is very boring to do so, and would likely cost me a shitload of dust I don't have.

Enjoying arena and tavern brawls though.

I wonder if its doing some odd matching or if i'm just getting lucky / unlucky

I got up to rank 13 earlier and dropped back to 15 playing with the rogue quest and only hit another rogue once or twice (a *lot* of warriors and hunters) - i switched to my hunter deck to complete one of my daily quests and saw a wider range of other decks (including a rogue for the first time in ages)

Dunno. I basically never see it in Casual, but whenever I go to Ranked it's extremely common. That's around Rank 20 since I haven't been arsed to play it.

Might just be the luck of the draw.

I fucking hate Taunt Warrior and it's usually a near auto-lose with my CORPSE FLOWER MIRACLE ROGUE deck, but this poor chappy pulled out Gadgetzan with Dirty Rat on his Turn 2, and I had a nice selection of cheap cards in my hand as well as Van Cleef. (I went coin, prep, sap, Van Cleef.)

So I had a 4/4 and an 8/8 on the board at the end of my second turn (and a few cards), and he conceded on his third turn with me having a 4/4, 8/8 and 3/3 on the board (he pulled SI Agent with the Dirty Rat I'd sapped), and drawing cards like a mofo.

(This match-up also amuses me when they pull Arcane Giant with Dirty Rat.)

I do like it when sweet little things like this happen.

Pack changes coming soon :

http://eu.battle.net/hearthstone/en/blo ... W#comments

Quote:
Hearthstone Update: Upcoming Card Pack Changes
Having fun and exciting moments in Hearthstone is important to us, so today we’re announcing an upcoming change to the way you’ll experience cracking open Hearthstone card packs.

WAAAH, Legendary!

Starting with the release of Hearthstone’s next expansion (but applying to ALL Hearthstone card packs), every time you open a Legendary in a card pack, it will be a Legendary card from that set that you don’t already own. Once you own either the golden or non-golden version of a Legendary card, you won’t get a duplicate of it until you own all the Legendary cards from that set. Soon, you’ll be able to craft a Legendary without the worry of opening it in your next few packs!

In addition, you will never open more copies of any card in a pack than you can use in a single deck—no more opening three or more of the same common, rare, or epic card in one pack!

Even More Legendary!

Beginning with the release of the next expansion, you’re also guaranteed to get a Legendary within your first 10 packs of a new set. The release of a new Hearthstone expansion is a super exciting time, and with this change we hope your pack openings start off on a celebratory note!

Combined, these changes should make the pack opening experience more exciting than ever—especially when you see that flash of gold heralding a Legendary card!
The Greater Crater Promotion

Elise Starseeker and her junior explorers have stumbled upon a fascinating discovery: a crater full of card packs! Starting in the next few days, we’re having a special limited time promotion* for Journey to Un’Goro card pack bundles: the price stays the same, but the number of packs gets dino-sized!

Original Pack Bundles


Special Pack Bundles
7 packs +2 packs = 9 packs total
15 packs +5 packs = 20 packs total
40 packs +12 packs = 52 packs total
60 packs** +18 packs = 78 packs total

We can’t wait to see your Legendary pack openings starting with Hearthstone’s next expansion!

*Promotion dates will be announced soon.

A much needed nerf to Quest Rogue, hateful deck.

At 5 minions required versus 4 though, I still think it'll get played, but it'll reduce the most dreadful encounters the deck is capable of producing.

So basically that removes it - to play it you'd need to draw too many bounce cards or be very lucky to get your fire elemental cards in hand at draw - I still lose plenty of games with it but generally to either fast decks who kill me early (Priest health and match / rogue flower / druid / face hunter / Shaman zoo), or decks that build up to a big finish (Jade Druid / Warrior quest / Shaman quest)

44 more wins till I get my golden rogue - I wonder if I can get it before the nerf triggers

Actually from there - the last time i posted stats was April and mines were :

zaphod79 wrote:
I have a golden Mage and Warlock - for the others

Priest 412/500
Hunter 412/500 (yes really the same number as Priest)
Paladin 401/500
Warrior 391/500
Rogue 287/500 ( I was less than 200 on this until Ungoro came out)
Druid 165/500
Shaman 73/500


So those have moved in 2 1/2 months to :

Priest 412/500
Hunter 443/500
Paladin 411/500
Warrior 457/500
Rogue 456/500
Druid 165/500
Shaman 73/500


So those 3 in red have not even moved - one of the last changes to the stats for the game let you see how many you have won over the 500 with your goldens

Mage 670
Warlock 827 (i had not realised just how much Warlock i played)

Yay! Nerf for Annoying Quest Rogue!

*Opens pack*

Rogue Quest Legendary.

Heh.

I have played it a few times, and on the whole I think it's still a valid nerf. It takes almost no skill to play, and hoovers up wins.

Earned off the backs of the tears of the Hearthstone community and boards full of 5-5s on Turn 4.....

I think Quest Rogue is the quickest nerf in the history of the game, DEATH TO QUEST ROGUE.

If I'm not playing a fast deck I just auto-concede against it.

I've played about eight games with it now and it just feels like cheating. 6 comfortable wins, 1 close win and one loss due to a spectacularly bad card draw (got to round 7 before I got my first return card).

Did have one fun game against a Priest though, who managed to nearly sneak it by having two dragonfire potions and then pulling another from a legendary who spams priest cards. Luckily I had just enough to take him out, but it took a while and was touch and go.

I must be doing something wrong - my hit rate with it is okay but no where near that good - unless its just the level (i'm currently at rank 15)

So after that post i had a few games - its late - there are some mistakes in here but this is 6 matches in a row using the Rogue Quest deck

Before watching
- how many do you think I won ?
- how many times did I get the quest completed ?



And the answers :
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
- how many do you think I won ? - 0/6
- how many times did I get the quest completed ? 4/6

The point is not the win-rate or power level of the deck (which isn't amazing), it's how spectacularly awful it is to play and lose against. It's the textbook definition of a 'non-interactive' deck, whereas if you're playing against it with the 'wrong' deck, you simply feel completely helpless and as if nothing you do influences the game in any way.

My response was more to Curio and his 'feels like cheating' comment than yours , I've watched the video and while I agree on some points I disagree with his main point which is 'when your losing to that deck you feel helpless, and thats bad'

I feel helpless losing to a *lot* of decks , some have a small bit of mitigation you can put into place but others do not and I've accepted that there will be games I start and even if I play my cards in the best way I possibly could I will lose.

The answer to a powerful / run over everything deck tends not to be a single (or small set) of cards to use to break it but as he says in the video to play another type of deck altogether

I completed the quest on turn three last night :DD

Maybe it's because I'm playing around level 18-20 or because I've been lucky, but it is just a monster. Especially if you're boomeranging the Flame chap, as you get four bonus 5/5 minions for 1 cost each!

The theoretical best to complete it is to go second against a rogue and begin with quest / fake coin / prep / swashburgler

Turn 1 , quest , coin , swashburgler (who steals a shadowstep) , shadowstep him , and play again (to steal a shadowstep) / and again , and again , you have completed the quest - the last swashburgler gets a fake coin and you play it plus the one you started with in your hand , then prep and the quest - and then hit them in the face for 5 points with your 5/5 patches

:-)

Yes odds against happening are nil but its theoretically possible :-)

Normally the quest triggers for me on around turn 6 or 7 but that just depends on your card draw

It does, but last night I got it out on 5 all but one time. Then it becomes a bastard to beat.

Probably my best one so far - it really depends on how quickly the other person works out i'm not attacking them but healing them and putting minions out for Rag to burn

My deck - a slight variantion on jade druid because it gets you some big point bodies on the deck to soak up the damage / a few good healing and card draw options

Mistress of Mixtures and Zombie chow helps the other person stay around a little longer and tree of life can extend things a round or two - i toyed with removing Wrath but at the start its a good indicator to them when you play it on your own minions to show your not attacking them

Oooohhhh Death Knights, cool.

I've just crested 9000 gold so am already in very good shape to freeload the next expansion, and there are a few weeks to go before it's released yet.

I've spent £166 on the game in total so I don't feel too bad about it.

The Tavern Brawl is fun - what's the reward for killing minions? Like, it said fireworks and shit.

Anyway, it is fun but ruined because people are just playing Quest Rogue in it and winning that way.

Fireworks on the emote - specifically 'wow' - 3 levels for getting progressively more kills with mini rag

Yeah thats frustrating - look you can see me healing your minions / knocking points off my own and not attacking you when i get the chance - why are you trying to hit me in the face
