Not actually someone who plays Hearthstone (though I kinda want to), but my god. My jaw was dropping. How did this even get to be a thing? O_o

Just thought this would be a cool vid to share; I love this dude's vids.
See me on Discord! ^.^

25 mins for shudderwock was short, it could go on an hour and on ward for real trolls. 30 mins a turn.
Sell by date is NOT the expiration date. It is a warranty date if the product is in its undamaged original packaging.

Isn't this the video where the person completely misrepresents how the card works?
Say what you want about Americans but we understand capitalism. You buy yourself a product and you get what you pay for.

Yes. And then compared it to a turn one OTK in Yu-Gi-Oh.

I remember us tearing this video apart when it appeared.

Seems like a long-forgotten memory now.

I mean, he DID say he doesn't play Hearthstone so it's fair enough that he took the link as fact. Wouldn't be the first time misinformation was spread around to people who don't know any better, won't be the last.

Fact is though launch Shudderwock was still unbelievably broken. You'd think Blizz would realize this is a design that needs to be stress tested as much as possible. It's understandable if they missed an unplayed neutral card for crazy synergy, but they should have at least observed that Grumble was in the Shaman toolkit and immediately go "what happens if Shaman can somehow duplicate Shudderwock with Grumbles battlecry?"

No, Blizzard was fully aware of the 1 mana Shudderwock combo and Brode strongly objected to releasing it as is, but he was overruled and Blizzard pushed it through anyway. Shortly thereafter, Brode announced that he was leaving the company.
Talk is cheap...because supply exceeds demand.
