    I thought I would take a quick 5:th ranked win for the weekly quest before some more relaxing console gaming yesterday night. Odd questline Hunter in wild would do the job quickly, I though. 4-5 straight losses and some embarassing misplays later I don't like that deck anymore.

    How about keeping a discovered Pressure Plate in hand the turn before APM mage hit the combo for lethal? Or being greedy with Rhok'delar (from Lock and Load) vs Renomage and waiting for my minion the be drawn instead of using avaible mana for 4 + 4 face damage? I still would have won if I had drawn Flare but no no no.

    There has been a few instances where I would just fuck it all and uninstall Hearthstone. Fucking DCs and animation lag even tho I had GTX 1660TI.

    I guess rage quit is enough for today. Just wait Hearthstone. Keep getting worse now. Any day now. Any day.

    If anyone's looking for free wins, I'm in Wild dumpster legend EU insta conceding against all warlocks. That seems to be the only thing the devs take seriously.

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    This may be the least enjoyable meta I've played in (have since WotOG), and there have been some bad ones!

    Sigh,  I genuinely don't ever post in salt threads. But I think if I'm being truly honest, this is by far the least fun I've ever had in a meta, both as playing as classes and against others.

    The only class I can even markedly climb with and enjoy on some small scale is quest shaman.  And even then most wins feel shallow and contrived.  But then I look at most of the decks I face and realize they are equally as shallow.

    Anacondra/Celestial Druid's who just vomit out cards and pray to RNG that their fungal fortunes doesn't discard any of their key cards. (literally if it does, they just instantly concede, because why build a "fair" deck when you can build a broken deck that has 0 comeback potential for your opponent, and if you fungal discard your key minions, just insta-concede and try again!)

    Quest Warlock, which after the SECOND round of nerfs is still strong and ridiculous.  They keep nerfing other cards, instead of the core of the problem.  Which if you'll pardon my language IS THE FUCKING QUEST.  

    I seriously have not disliked a meta as much since probably Jade Druid.  Or maybe Rastakhan's rumble.  But seriously this current meta is the most polarizing meta ever.  And I honestly feel like if mercenaries and/or the next expansion falls flat I'm done with Blizzard.  (Considering that I've been playing Blizzard games for over 25 years now, it's almost sad, but also considering that their company has changed drastically I think it's time the king was dethroned...)

    I wanted to try out Raid the Docks Questline Warrior after seeing Kibler pilot it with some (probably limited) success. I didn't expect much, but it was a change of pace from slamming the same deck for two months.

    Two Questline Warlocks and two Control Priests later, and I rage quit. I even managed to complete the quest into a coin + Mindrender Illucia for the instaloss, just to salt the wound. A serious misplay, to be sure, but dammmit. Daaaamit.

    I am so pissed off that Questline Mage is still alive. I hope Blizzard stomps this stupid deck to the ground in the next round of nerfs.

    Yesterday I had the Quests to win in ranked, play as Warrior, deal 200 damage to Heroes and to complete Stormwind quest lines. So I thought I could to it all in once with QL Warrior and try to get the "attack with Pirates" achievement on the go. It's not good in Standard so I switched to Wild an finally decided to craft Patches!

    Ok, so after the start of the first game I noticed that I net decked the wrong deck :D It had no Quest... I won the game surprisingly. Then I queued with the correct deck. Other then the Celestial Druid I met in the first game it performed as expected 

    So what brings me to this thread? The fact that I drew Patches in each of the first three games from the top turn 1!

    I am so fucking tired of losing to Miracle Mind Tether Priest in Duels.

    That strategy singlehandedly negates any kind of non-burn-centric strategy, making it impossible to have a reasonable run with nothing that isn't a meta deck.

     

    Seriously, fuck that deck.

    Yea, I really dislike mind tether.  Granted as # of games goes up, the efficacy of the deck goes down, but those first 1-4 games against any Mind Tether priest are generally unfun as you most likely will lose barring hail mary armor/health gains.  (Consequently, I've stolen a few wins from Mind Tether priests by playing quest shaman in duels, and building my starting deck with Healing Rain.  It's a lovely card to use alone, or after quest (For double the healing fun!) to help stall the game into a winning scenario.

    I just started a Shaman run and I took your suggestion: I hope Healing Rain will give me some chances in the early matches.

    I absolutely hate this meta right now. I HATE IT. Here are the decks I've been facing all day:

    Questline Mage

    Questline Warlock

    Celestial Druid

    Questline Shaman

    ALL of them can kill you in a single turn. ALL of them. So what, I have to play hyper aggro every single time now? Is that it? It's NOT FUN, and it's NOT FUNNY ANYMORE.  

    I really, really wish the devs have a bad day today. They destroyed this game, those morons.

    Came back to complete quests for the first time in a while and remembered why I stopped playing. Literally 0 deck diversity in the meta.

    Also fuck the questlines. Who looked at Hearthstone and said that some horrifying abomination of control-combo-big-aggro deck should exist. It’s just go face or bust, no slower strategies are allowed to win anymore. I fucking hate it

    Honestly, once HS finally shuts down I’ll finally be able to get some closure on the incompetent Hearthstone team

    Im not mad about the stormwind quests to be honest.

    But really, fuck that bs quest that is Sorcerer's Gambit. Just delete this from the game. I dont care what the win rate is, because this deck is unbeatable if you have no burn, and if you are even for a second depending on your minions to do damage.

    Mage deserves better than this crap design.
