    I got a normal quest but can't reroll it. Also all of my decks are showing missing cards even when they aren't missing. Seems to be the same issue come back in decks where you have one gold and one normal version of the card in the deck. This one is weirder though because it actually shows the card as missing in the deck but shows "max amount allowed in deck" in the collection. I have to remove the card from the deck and re-add it to resolve the issue.

    I'm almost sure that Blizzard said that they won't do different arts for the same card, because people isn't smart enough to understand that a different Ragnaros will still deal 8 damage at the end of turn.

     

    And actually there are better arts, are the golden cards. And they are made in a way that Blizzard would like: almost the same as the basic card, and more expensive.

    This always seemed like a poor excuse to me. The game that each person is seeing is local to their device. If I decide that I am ok with a full art card or alternate art on cards then who cares? It is my own fault for doing that and then getting confused. It won't effect anyone else because everyone else is looking at the game based on the assets downloaded to their own device. 

     

    PLUS any cosmetic things like this that require a quest to complete would take long enough that a person would be very familiar with the cards in question by the time they completed it. Not only that but they could easily make these changes optional so you could toggle them on and off. 

     

    I always thought we should have way more control over how our game appears visually. I want to be able to change my opponents card backs etc. (specially since that is the card back I see not my own.)

    You haven't convinced me that there is a problem here (...)
     

    The problem: Let's assume that I am at rank 4 now. It's a matter of months before I reach Rank 20 through careful planning of my win/loss ratio, dropping 4 ranks at a time. Then I lose some more by conceding, to adjust my MMR accordingly, only to be matched against the poor souls who happened to be naive and ascend to the Rank 20 floor. My strat now is to win one match and concede the next or two and guess what; my MMR is low enough to be matched against those "Mark of Hakkar" players that are kind enough to greet me when they see me and are a delight to play against! On top of that, I farm gold faster than having to win an Archivist Elysiana mirror match! Only when I see another player like me (trust me when I say that they are easy to spot) I concede, but only if I was slow enough to press the concede button before they did. You would be surprised to learn that it actually hurts me more to win against those better win-rate guys, so I have learned how to concede in a blink of the eye (at the moment just before I hear the name of my hero, if taking reaction time into consideration)! What I've learned through this process: I'm actually better at assessing the correct match for me than the Hearthstone matchmaking algorithm!

    The problem I have is

    A) You don't know the circumstances for each individual. What if someone really loves this game and bought a bunch of cards so they could craft a tier 1 or 2 deck but they are still just starting out so they aren't that good with it yet and their low rank is deserved?

    2) Your original postulation that this was an issue was based on the appearance of gold heroes which was pointed out several times is not connected to ability but time as well as the fact that we have two different cards in the game now that when used give you a golden hero and a golden deck.

    Z) I just don't see actual data to back up your original assessment that this is a huge problem for the game. I am sure it happens to a small degree but it is definitely not something that I think people run into on a really regular basis. This is like when people whine about a particular card or deck because they ran into it a bunch but the actual data in the background doesn't back up their assertion that it is everywhere and overrunning the game.

    Golden hero's with all golden decks could also be playing the cloak thingy. That also gives you a random deck with all golden cards and a golden hero.

    I convinced a friend of mine to start playing Hearthstone some time ago and for the moment he prefers being Free-to-Play. He plays a basic mage deck and with my "help" we managed to get to rank 17. He is not new to cards games (we played MTG together) so he has a good understanding of the mechanics and such.

    The problem is that as he gets a lot of wins, the algorithm matches him now with golden-portrait players with all-golden decks etc. He couldn't reach his Rank 15 goal, so I advised him to farm a bit in lower ranks, since he wishes to remain F2P for the time being. The problem actually got even worse at bottom ranks. Golden players farm wins and gold at these ranks apparently and ruin the experience for newer players. How are they going to love this game which treats them without respect? Would any of them stay or spend money to get bullied by dudes like them (trust me some of them are really toxic)? I do understand that as people play the game for longer and the skill cap of players get higher, we are going to see more and more of this.

    Anyways, I believe that if anyone has been to Rank Legend or has over a certain amount of wins (1500+ wins lets say), the game should not let them drop under rank 15. Maybe if some of them have returned after a long time, there could be some "outs" for them. What do you think of this? If you were new to Hearthstone, would you invest any time, effort or money in a try-hard-looking, overpriced game like this?

    Golden heroes are a product of time commitment not ability to play. I have one golden hero but have never gotten past rank 5. I also have met many gold hero players that make super shitty plays and I beat them easily. 

    Not saying that you are wrong about how match making works I am just pointing out that you are harping on people with golden heroes when that isn't the real issue. It is just easy to see so that is what you latch on to.

    When I played him just now, only 1 card showed up each time I had to "guess" which card he was about to play. For each turn. Which meant he wasn't able to play a single card before he died at turn 7.

    Seems like a bug (and a pretty big one since it meant effectively an auto-victory for me) so curious if that happened to others as well?

    When I played him it wasn't one card each time but it was two and he played both cards anyway so either way I would have guessed correctly. This meant all I had to do was pick the stronger or higher cost card and I won easily and quickly.

    I have not been able to get Jr. Tomb Diver to work yet but I want to so badly. It seems like a fun card but ends up a 4 mana 5/5 instead.

    The solo content for heist was amazing and fun. I was really happy with it regardless of the rewards. I pre-ordered the next one as the pre-order price was the same as the cost last time but came with a bonus. I don't buy packs ever in this game the only thing I pay for is solo content which is only about $40 a year so I am ok with that.

    Mogu Fleshshaper into Hir'eek, the Bat totally OP, Blizzard please nerf.

    Sorry guys, I had to.

    Haha this is what would happen to me if I played that deck. Every time! I do agree that discounted cards interact poorly with cards that take their cost into effect once in play. This has been a problem in several cases and while the Shaman deck isn't tier 1 it is one of those situations where high rolling into a Gruul on turn 4 for example just feels bad to play against. In a game where fun is the goal unfun plays are a big problem often more important to fix than really powerful decks. For example see Big Priest in wild which is not a t1 deck but is just really unfun to play against while a lot of the other t1 wild decks are more fun to play against

    On the bright side they have adjusted Zephrys in the past so hopefully they adjust it again in the future to account for fatigue and to continue to get it to consider more deathrattle cards. It seems like they want to keep improving the coding of the card to make it give better choices.

    Yeah, you're right there. I hope you can still get some good use out of him, since I assume you won't disenchant. I unpacked him myself, and will keep him because of the no duplicate rule.

    It is important to note too that I am not mad and I think this change is a brilliant way to bring down the power level of some cards without destroying them. It also hit multiple issue areas with one change. 

    I am sure I will still use armagedillo somewhere. Just might not recraft Dr. Boom like I thought and play control warrior. Maybe I will build a for fun taunt warrior deck.

    Owning Armagedillo doesn't affect this. The nerf is to cards that can discover Armagedillo, like Frightened Flunky.

    The viability of the main deck that armagedillo is used in is considerably hindered by the fact that Armagedillo itself will not show up as much in the discover mechanic from Flunky. It doesn't affect Armagedillo directly but it affects the deck that armagedillo is used in and therefore the value of crafting armagedillo. I have enough dust and decks that this won't be that big of a deal in the long run and I am not crying for a dust refund. I am however lamenting the fact that I crafted armagedillo only to have its usefulness diminished.

    I am a little bummed I crafted Armagedillo now. Would be nice to get a dust refund on it but not the end of the world without. It is going to have a huge impact though. The deck will be much less consistent.

    I just noticed that the various quest cards have not been updated yet with their associated hero powers or cards they give. Can those be updated with the "related cards" section too please?

    Yeah, some stuff is marked in a not obvious way in the client, so it didnt get proper updates, we will fix these things manually, so feel free to point them out.

    Thanks! I really appreciate all the hard work that is going into this site. It is filling out really nicely and the work shows. The only ones I have noticed so far is all the current quests and old quests. Is it best to pm a mod or post in a thread like this if I find something missing

    I see you already found the thread where we collect this info, so yeah, post it there, thanks! :)

    Yeah that thread was made after I asked the question so once I noticed it I started posting there. It takes a village to make a website great so we all have to do our part. I appreciate the report button too. There was a dude spamming "cool" on tons of threads the other day just to achievement hunt and I was wishing I could report him.

    I posted this in the changelog thread but I went through and checked all of the quests old and new and they are all missing their related hero powers.

    I am not sure if this was requested yet but it would be really nice to be able to favorite decks or save them to a favorite deck list so I could go back and see them and check them for changes or updates. It would be nice to have a list of favorite decks under my profile. 

     

    It would also be really nice to be able to follow deck builders and get a notification if they update a deck or create a new one.

    So glad to see the related cards feature added! That is a huge feature. Thank you!

     

    Edit: I noticed that this includes "cards" for hero powers too which is amazing!

    I dusted 3 legendaries and all my extra arms and conj. calling copies. I might craft Dr. Boom again I think he will still be useful in taunt warrior but I am going to wait and see how the meta shakes out. Might craft Barnes again because I don't think the nerf did enough to neuter his usefulness and many of the decks that play him can live with him one turn later. 

     

    Not sure what else to craft with the rest of the dust though.
