    I agree, Mr. Smite is pretty much like what Leeroy Jenkins was back in the day: if you see it coming down on the board, chances are you are dead and it's not worth playing out the game anymore.

    Thanks Blizz, what this game needed was clearly a 1 mana Mr. Smite.

    Okay, so, I know that it's not a top tier deck or anything, but I'm seriously pissed off that Defend the Dwarven District has avoided the nerfs that have hit the other popular questlines.

    Unlike the others, this gives you sizable permanent bonuses that synergize with your quest reward substantially. I'm so tired of seeing this stupid deck, and even more annoyed that rather than nerf it into oblivion like they did with the other popular quests, Blizz has chosen to do nothing.

    I know that it's not the strongest, but it's a bigtime feelsbadman moment to go from 18 to 0 on turn 7. UUUAAAAGH! /salt

    Just lost a game because on turn 10 the game decided to bug out and do that thing where my opponent no longer looks like they're playing cards and also their turn timer is actually infinitely long (at least visually on my end, and effectively never gives me my turn).

    Obvious Disconnect, or something that broke.

    By the time I got back in, it had skipped my turn.

    I had lethal that turn if he wasn't allowed 20 mana to save himself. (Mecha-Shark combo, didn't have enough health on the board at the start of his next turn, which would have been the amount of health he had on the board during my turn, but because I wasn't allowed to attack with my minions and then he put more health on the board, I ended up not winning that game)

     

    This game is actually broken.  I've noticed opponents too "skipping their turns" more often than it should happen, lately, so I feel like this is an actual problem.

    That control paladin deck that buffs their Mr. Smite in hand then OTKs you out of nowhere with a 65 attack charge minion is the greatest bullshit ever. I cannot believe that after everything how charge minions are bad for the game they create a card like mr. smite and then still allow it to exist as the most annoying card in standard. I cannot blame anyone for playing that card, I fully blame the designers and send a big "fuck you" their way.

    It was a server-side patch so no app update required. Just start/restart the game and you're set

    Something similar happened to me yesterday, after 2-3 minutes with the game not responding, I could watch how my opponent played 4 turns in a row in a few seconds, while I has unable to do anything. Of course I was dead before my game responded. This was on PC.

    Fortunately I have experienced this only once, I hope it doesn't happen again.

    The pleasure is mine.

    My last standard decks: nothing special right now.

    There is still too much off-board damage in the game. I just lost 3 straight games and took a combined 8 damage from minions attacking me, and some of that came from Lady S'theno. I took over 100 damage from weapon attacks, spells, Pufferfist and Defias Cannoneer.

    This so much.

    The game has always been a bit dumb but it a fun kind of dumb. Now it just caters to lowest of IQ players (because they're the majority and it makes more money) who just play whatever is in their hand with no thought to the board state whatsoever. Keywords like 'taunt' are currently worthless as the top decks right now literally don't have to think about it.

    Hi I just want to talk to the guy who designed the Diver cards in Arena, because someone was so focused on making pack filler without thinking about how these cards would singlehandedly destroy the Arena game-mode

    I hope they nerf Drek'Thar to a 0 mana 1/1, and replace his Diamond with a big ol' middle finger.

    A man is lying on the street, some punks chopped off his head

    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead.

    Hmm. Turns out he's dead.

    Mutanus the Devourer needs to be retired. It's not good enough that a game can go on for a long time and then suddenly your opponent pulls not just Mutanus but sometimes with Brann out of their ass and just makes the whole game pointless. At least with Rat you would mostly be 'ratted' quite early and you could end the game early. Now it's just a colossal waste of time as your (usually) idiot, misplaying moron of an opponent just presses the iwin button.

    You either play aggro in this mess of a game or gg and go home. I hope Microsoft step in and sack the current design team.

    Roasting Naga Demon Hunter cards because I can't think of any other way to make myself feel better about losing to DHs who don't need to play well to win:

    Dreadprison Glaive: I appreciate that Blizzard feels it's necessary to teach Demon Hunter players that they should be hitting minions instead of just brainlessly jamming into the face.

    Multi-Strike: If I worked on Hearthstone, I would send daily memos to my coworkers, "Don't Give Demon Hunter Windfury." I would have no other responsibility in the company. I would work in HR, and any designer caught attempting to give Demon Hunter Windfury would have to attend a weekend seminar where all they would do is try to climb Standard Ladder against Demon Hunters with Multi-Strike. I would not have a salary, but would show up early every morning with a fresh batch of memos.

    Predation: So apparently what Blizzard learned from Eye Beam is, "Make it hit face, too." And here I was thinking the lesson was "Don't make 'Deal 3 damage' Cost 0, you morons."

    Kurtrus, Demon-Render: Blizzard decided that Bakuing the Hero Power wasn't good enough, so they made it refresh like Shadowreaper Anduin or Questline Hunter. I see nothing wrong with emulating some of the most broken strategies in the history of the game, this should all work out fine. I really enjoy fending off Demon Hunter's aggression, including an on-curve Drek'Thar, only to lose because my opponent has Lady S'theno and a couple of spells in hand. How nice for them. On top of that, they get to summon two X/4s with Rush, where X is the number most likely to frustrate their opponent.

    Lady S'theno: Infinite Attacks to clear the board while also triggering Kurtrus' Hero Power? No, this is perfectly fine. This stupid garbage is so overtuned that Naga DH players are unironically running Archdruid Naralex for the 36% chance they hit Nightmare because Blizzard made this deck so easy to auto-pilot to wins that the players had to step in to make things a little bit more challenging for themselves.

    Drek'Thar: HSReplay says that Drek'Thar has a 68% mulligan winrate, but "only" a 61% played winrate, so I'm going to spend the rest of the month trying to tell my Demon Hunter opponents that they're costing themselves 7% of a win every time they play Drek'Thar. Maybe it'll work.

    I have spoken.
