    ive played on and off since beta, continuously since whispers, and i can say without a shadow of a doubt that odd questline hunter is the most brainless and cheap deck i have ever played against. sure, ive hated plenty of decks over the years, but even something as horribly oppressive as questlinelock or eater of souls at least took some amount of skill to execute.

    ive never seen a competitive viable deck that is so mind-numbingly easy to rob games with, to the point where i legitimately think that if you got to legend with odd hunter that you dont deserve to be there. everyone else thats worked their asses off to climb their way up to legend now has to worry about losing games by complete chance because we matched into some drooling brainlet playing solitaire while the rest of us play hearthstone. you did not earn your legend rank because you werent even playing hearthstone, you were playing cookie clicker and making the game less enjoyable for everyone else. people that play this bullshit dont care about having a healthy meta, or earning the rank they get, or getting better at the game, or using any brain power whatsoever when they play; they just care about seeing their number go up regardless of whether or not they worked at all to get it there. hearthstone might as well be an idle game to these fucks.

    wild is a place where "unfair" decks are allowed to flourish, and i think thats fine as long as those decks require skill to be able to pilot (e.g. exodia mage, turtle mage, darkglarelock etc.). however, when the most unfair deck in the meta is also the single easiest deck to pilot in the history of the game, theres a problem.

    on top of this, hunter as a class has been forced into face/aggro hunter lists (that are also god awful to play against but are nowhere near as unfair) in standard for ages since blizzard wont print anything good enough for other potential archetypes to be viable. so what do they do? they print Defend the Dwarven District, the single most powerful face hunter card in the history of the game so now both standard AND wild are completely polluted with this shit. i remember when hunter had interesting things they could do, whether it be the highlander hunter decks from not too long ago with Dinotamer Brann or the spell-based hunter decks with Zul'jin. i remember when id see new cards revealed for hunter and be excited, not angry that i have new god awful card design to play against. whoever is in charge of designing cards for this class absolutely NEEDS to be fired.

    i will never forgive blizzard for what they did to turtle mage

    So ever since the most recent BG's patch hit I've been much more unlucky in my games than before. In my last game I was finally having a lucky game again and was setting up a very promising endgame dragon build, only to die because I lost two rounds in which I had a 1.2% and then a 4.5% chance to lose... The probability of that happening is 0.054%.

    I know this is a high-variance game mode but it's really starting to feel like this game just doesn't want me to have fun anymore...

    So, I had Augmented Elekk on the board and traded in Persistent Peddler into my deck with only one card. It generated a new one. However, the generated Persistent Peddler, when traded into the deck, doesn't keep generating cards despite it being a card shuffled into the deck, meaning Augmented Elekk's effect, which was still in play, didn't even trigger.

    It's bad enough that I have to hunt achievements in Wild ranked instead of casual play despite the fact that HUNTING ACHIEVEMENTS IS THE DEFINITION OF CASUAL PLAY, I can't even do it properly because the game has more spaghetti than all of fucking Italy.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    Another arena rant.  Battleground battlemaster should not be draftable in arena.  Seriously, I hate that if you don't play around ANY mid game minion, it can in some ways immediately end the match.  

    IMO the card shouldn't have been printed at all in the first place, especially not as a persistent effect.

    Why is it that EVERY single time I am thinking on my turn and have a minion ready to attack but of course im not gonna cuz it's a bad trade (eg they have a big taunt) my opponent has to highlight it in an attempt to try to persuade me to?

    Oh, yes in that case it is kind of bs.  However, the issue is not the card but rather Mind Tether passive combined with fireshaper.  The card in a vacuum is a perfectly fine control/removal card.  The card combined with all the other stuff in duels creates early games that are nearly unwinnable.  It sucks the longer runs go on though due to deck dilution.

    A shaman just played 76 cards, he "randomly" discovered, against me in a single game. Yeah sure, thanks for nothing.

    The questlines were all fucking horrible ideas and horrible mistakes. They A) actively punish any win con that is board-related and B) actively punish the player for running anything sub optimal.

    Just do something about them already, Team 5. This shit is not fun.

    From what I've seen so far, people don't want to play with the new cards. Haven't seen anybody use them.

    Played a few games after opening my packs. Tried out Freeze Shaman, Big DH and Beast Druid... my opponents were old Quest Mage (no new cards), Aggro Druid (no new cards) and Control Priest (no new cards).  Fun!

    Played 5 games this morning to complete quests and went 0-5 against exclusively Quest Mage and Pirate Warrior, yet again not a single new card detected in any of the games.

    Mercenaries is the only gamemode in this game i enjoy, but it is such a SLOG.

     

    I have had a fully maxed out team before leaving the first area. And now i am full of a lot of "now what" energy. 

     

     

    Living like that.

    Spoiler: the game is not "fun and interactive" anymore if your opponent playing Irondeep Trogg on turn 1 makes you concede instantly.

    Kind of depressing that Baka Questline Hunter is still tier 1 and needs exactly no cards from the new expansion to still be there. Not pissed off, more annoyed that it has such absurd reach while being insultingly easy to pilot.
