    You probably missed an ugly because you haven't tried playing it on your mobile.

    If you have 3 opponents and hover over the center one to see the ability, you can't, it's cutoff and shown off-screen so your entire strategy is either guess or remember what the AI does (or all the character's abilities) the next time you run, because you're obviously far more likely to fail when you can't see what your middle opponent is about to do each and every encounter.

    Agree with the rest, I actually thought I was missing something when I couldn't figure out where the affiliation was written.

    So, let's just assume you can somehow draw 4 (or better yet, 5) cards in one turn every turn starting at turn 2. So turn 2 - 4, turn 3- 5, turn 4 - 5, turn 5- 1 + playing the reward

    Even in this 100% impossible way (can't do it with the mana, can't even hold that many cards which means you're very likely to lose a whole lot of them if you try), you've drawn 15 cards before you've lowered the rest of your deck by 2.  That would also require playing both your skulls extremely (impossibly) early, and if you're casting both from outcast you've already won with current DH OTK anyway and don't  really need that mana decrease.

    This card is obsolete before it even came out.

    I took it as a given they would try to veer players, who know little or nothing at all firsthand, from the allegations (despite their open letter being even more vile and disrespectful than I expected).

    The fact they're treating their own employees as stupid, uninformed people by saying the lawsuit is factually false as numerous accounts, including recorded ones, continue to surface, is baffling to me. I'm not sure what they're trying to accomplish but pretty sure nothing positive will come of it.

    It's not supposed to, but it actually does, at least a little.

    Playing against someone you realize paid for their cards makes losing a tad less annoying and winning a tad better. Playing against a deck that's factually better than yours but you cant afford to build because you're F2P is less frustrating (also, just a tad less).

    So after the initial community outrage and skepticism (me included), as a very casual F2P player I'm currently at level 111 and counting, and my gold income is certainly WAY above what I would make with the old system. 

    Without missing any quests it's quite easy to get very high on the the rewards track, especially after the changes to make the quetss easier to complete, I've actually missed a couple of weekly quests and a few more dailies, as long as you can reroll ones that don't suit you (except the ranked wins one) I assume anybody could get enough gold to make quite a sizeable purchase of packs without spending any money.

    Side note - cosmetic changes are fine (and make it much easier to know if you're playing against another F2P player or not), but there are a while lot of those already, and while you can pretty easily know what class you're against by the hero power, I'm not sure it's very friendly to new players, now that each class has 3-4 skins and at least 2 characters. I've not kept up to date with all those cosmetics so I keep realizing there are more and more added all the time. 

    P.S. The fact I got more gold than every before doesn't mean I'll ever say no to MORE achievements, without (or preferably with) rewards.

    You accidently put the old Nijimox instead of the new nerfed one on the Warlock suggestion.

    More sad for the hopes of another female world champion than the fact Luna only got me 1 pack, really sad every time you see one of the nest players in the world lose because its a card game after all and it happens.

    At least Jarla got through, so while I will not get packs from him, has been cheering him all through GM and would really love to see him win.

    Bloodyface - Always a bridesmaid, maybe this time a bride?

    Considered voting for Jarla who I've been following all season, but he had too many wins by running X3 warrior counter lineups near the end, doubt that'd work in the world championship.

    This seems like a joke, and a very unfunny one, at that.

    That's a good first step. 3-5 more and this reward track would actually work and be... rewarding.

    First of all, thanks, Flux, that's very comprehensive and helpful.

    However, I, for one, an going to find it difficult to complete all weekly quests consistently, as well as playing for about an hour each day. That's not a lot, but I have days where I can't find the time to play a single game, and if every day like that is going to require a day I play for two hours to compensate, this system is going to gain me considerably less.

    This first week, e.g., I got a weekly quest of achieving 1st place in BG. As someone who has no perks and very little experience or desire to play BG, I changed the quest and instead got the one that requires to deal 2,000 damage in BG. I figured it was easier, played one game, finished 8th and saw I only dealt ~150 damage and realized this is just not going to happen. After they specifically said you're supposed to gain as much no matter which mode or style you play, I find this a problem. 

    It seems like in order to gain enough you don't only need to play your preferred mode and style, but play all the other ones as well in order to really get far in the track.

    Expect to die by the time you get it set up by any reasonable aggro deck since none of those has taunt or any ability to remove multiple minions. And that's only if you get the very best, optimal draw.

    This card is great, not as OP as people seem to think it is.

    Because when your colossus gets silenced (or bounced), you cry. When this does, you already removed something very big with it due to rush.

    5 health on 3 mana is real premium, this is going to be hard to deal with if it goes down on curve, and surviving for a turn or 2 makes the potential insane even before you start imagining Sethekk Veilweavercombos.

    Seems great to me.

    Well, to be fair, it can actually work in pretty much any Paladin that isn't aggro, I wouldn't mind if all my silver hand recruits had divine shield in the late game in my Pure Libram Paladin, would make it that much harder to keep my board clear after I play Liadrin and have a hand full of buffs.

    Huh, I was wondering if and how and will they insert a Demon for menagerie Paladin.

    The faire seems to have quite a lot of X cost X/Xs with Rush...  Though this one, if run, would be casr for 1 more often than not.

    6 attack is ridiculously easy to get with DH.

    This is VERY good... Will be played when you have an empty board rather than a Demon build that is still not very viable, but pretty viable for control.

    Tirion Fordring is not a fair comparison. If It gets silenced or sapped it's basically you spent you're 8th turn to no effect. This gets you 7 health off the bat and probably kills a minion as well, so even if it's dealt with immediately, you got at least part of it which may be enough.

    Shirvallah forced you to play a whole lot of sub-par cards. Pure Paladin is already a playable+ deck, this just adds more to the power. I will definitely try to run in in my pure Paladin that already does well.

    Seems like a card we will see a lot of. No one will run it, though.
