    Honestly, sometimes I wonder how this would go down, if Flux came to me asking this question lol:

    • I try to help with the Weekly Card Design Competition, but Shadows does most of the work and the rest is automated.
    • I used to (rarely) help with reports; then I got locked out one time and I'm too embarrassed to bring it up so I don't do reports anymore XD
    • Despite being a writer, and general enthusiast for Hearthstone and Runeterra, I don't write any of the content you read on the site because I don't have the confidence or the advanced knowledge required to hold an expert opinion/position on these games.
    • I post on occasion outside of the WCDC, but not as much as I used to now that I have a full-time job.

    So...yeah. Now it's background stuff on the site that you won't ever notice, like proof-reading articles and pointing out mistakes. Or complaining about Battlegrounds matches on Discord.

    If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D

    Personally i check Outof.cards a few times per day to check if there is any news/new articles about Hearthstone (Which is the only card game i play), and obviously to see if there are any new HS decks posted that seem interesting! After checking that i look at recent forum threads, read some and if i feel like it i comment in them. (And if i feel EXTREMELY salty i might post in the salt thread every once in a while..) 

    Obviously with every HS card reveal season i check Outof.Cards like every few hours and i comment on every new card revealed, and i often join in on discussions about those new cards! (Which helps expanding my English vocabulary sometimes, and of course getting better at writing in English.)

    Oh and obviously i wait for new word searches, those are fun!  :)

     

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Usually checking news, satisfying my social needs, sharing my shittiest decks for LoR mostly, sometimes for HS, gathering some information for fan creations of my own (There are some real brilliant minds), shitposting and being downvoted to hell sometimes, pissing on someone or something from time to time, so Simple human behaviours mostly but I can confess that I'm openning this site more than 5 times in a day. I hate e-sports and don't like to play with decks that i didn't build so I am probably missing almost half of the site's function but anyways, this site and community is still lovely.

    I was hating to post on forums once upon a time and I was only a follower once this team was on pwn but they are like a little freaking blackholes who vacuums you into their social stuff; i loved em, started to post there and we moved here and I continued to post here too, I'm kinda addicted to it. I am leaving and returning from time to time but love these guys work really.

    I'm similar to a lot of folks here:

    • I check the site a few times a day while procrastinating on work for news updates on HS mostly.  ~80% of my HS consumption is here and the rest is on the Competitive HS Reddit page so I can learn how the enemy thinks ;D
          
    • I really enjoy the articles here and leave a comment once in awhile if I feel like someone hasn't already said it better (in which case I just upvote).  The same goes for the forums which I check pretty regularly.
         
    • My favorite part of the game is theorycrafting and refining off-meta (Hunter) decks through trial-and-error.  As such I try to avoid viewing other decks early in an expansion and then start looking through ones with guides later for ideas I might've missed.  I try to post a couple successful(?) archetypes with guides each expansion.
          
    • I used to avoid the ladder, but the old deck building challenge on HP got me motivated to reach Rank 10 each season so I could participate.  I've stuck with that goal ever since and meme to D10 in the current system with the occasional grind to D5 if I feel bad playing something in Casual.  (Got there this season with a Primordial Hunter, but at the cost of hating Paladin ;P )
          
    • My nostalgia for the old game thread led me to try to create a version here, but I quickly learned how hard it was to keep up with even a weekly post and closed shop.  This makes me especially appreciative of the mods who write weekly articles because I know they put a lot of work into them and I'm sure there are plenty of weeks they really don't have the time but still come up with something for us.

    Overall, I really like the atmosphere here and try to contribute to it in small ways when I can.  A big thank you to Flux, the mods, and all of the users for making this a nice place to visit.

    Honestly we could use a few more players in the [Game] Card Treasure Hunt. It's the most popular thread here for a reason yet we often don't have enough players.

     

    https://outof.cards/forums/hearthstone/hearthstone-general/2039-game-card-treasure-hunt-the-resurrection-attempt

     

    Try and guess the riddle and if you solve it get the fun of making one of your own! It's fun to scroll through the pages and see how the riddles get solved slowly too. 

     

    Come and give it a look if you haven't for a while

    Amen!

     

     

    Now:

    - I look the HS news like 20 times a day (My only OCD)

    - I post and crack some riddles in the Card Treasure Hunt

    - I whine in the Salt thread.

    - I awe at kaladin's posts. (quite entertaining and honestly, people shouldn't downvote him that much)

    - I often submit something in the WCDC.

    Papa Nurgle wants to share his gifts.

    Ah yes, the advanced knowledge. That's totally what I have, why would I ever write so many posts if I didn't.

    Anyway, I'm tinkering with a variety of things around the site but I guess most of the time I spend goes towards writing articles and trying to keep certain guides up-to-date. I also play the same two games than link and dump 100x the salt he does on the Discord he mentioned. I would certainly be one of the most frequent salt thread users had I chosen that as my outlet :D

    Well, I visit this site numerous times a day, tho I only log in if I want to post/comment on something. I check the news page, then go to see the forums. I like our rewards track thread and get excited when someone posts their progress, or when someone makes a new thread, which is sadly, very sporadic. I sometimes make a thread myself about drops or new heroes/cardbacks in the shop, or things I don´t like for others to miss, or just ask a question which I can´t find the answer for. Most of the time I just reply in the other threads when someone asks a question and I think I have the answer, that could be helpful :D I like to check the most active thread the Card Treasure Hunt and even tho I´d love to participate, my english is not so good to get the references in the riddles, and even if I might guess the card right after a few hints, I wouldn´t be able to make a meaningfull riddle myself. I liked to read our salt and pepper threads too, but the first one not so much anymore because too much is too much. From time to time I post a deck for Tavern Brawls or Solo Heroic bosses if I have success with it, but I´m not very confident posting my own decks for Ranked, cause I´m not a good deckbuilder.

    I love our little community here and I´m grateful to all of the staff and members to be so amazing helpful individuals, so one can feel welcomed here :)

    EDIT: I´ve just realized that in few days I´ll have a 2 year anniversary since I´ve joined this site. Yay! :D

    Please be kind to each other

    Past the obvious (no pun intended) answer of keeping up to date on Hearthstone news?

    Post stale memes, be a Smart Aleck while being bad about not proofreading my posts, talk about how much I dislike slot machine tavern brawls. Not in that specific order. Pretty bog standard stuff.
