Guy made legend without anything higher than rare.

So once again, you've failed logic and decided that an extremely great player getting to Legend means the game's not P2W. Never mind that the same awesome player would get there faster WITH epic and legendary cards, or that your average player piloting his budget decks won't go nearly as fast as he did and many will never get legend because they themselves aren't skilled enough. But ya...keep misunderstanding what P2W means.

I don’t know why I try. I posted objective proof that skill means infinitely more than spending ever will.

But they refuse to listen.

Get blocked you ignorant troll.

I dunno why this P2W debate keeps going... Obviously, some players are good enough to get to legend with budget decks, and obviously spending more money will get you more (and better) cards.

So, its a little of column A, and a little from column B. Can we stop arguing now?
If you believe in thinking for yourself, and aren't afraid to admit it, put something unique and original in your signature.

There's a lot of psychology going on. Cognitive dissonance makes people irrational, and they feel the desperate need to explain away their pay to win habits.

Yeah.... no, you proved none of that. You use an extreme example on one end of the spectrum but on the other end there are plenty of mediocre players making legend being carried by the strength of their collection that you completely overlook because it doesn't fall in line with your narrative.

for every one of these post about someone making it to legend with a cheap deck the are at least 10 people making it to legend by just having a top of the line deck and going with the flow/tempo.

What TC posted... is the exact opposite of what you're blabbing about.

He's literally saying you don't need to spend money if you practice enough and git gud. Laughable that you'd try sounding smart and yet just fail miserably.

Breaking news: it’s easier to make legend with epic and legendary cards

Also breaking news: you don’t have to spend money to get those cards

Edit: I just seriously love how the delusional people find every excuse. When they have objective proof that skill means more, they just call it ‘an extreme example’

Lmao

Ironically you're not the brain damaged one in this thread :)

Skill in hearthstone means more than paying, but paying gets you ahead. Why is the P2W world so black and white to you? Here's a doll, where did the bad EA touch you?
