What I've learned from Rank 5 so far:

People play weird decks for s***s and giggles
Win streaks don't exist anymore

Thanks FD. My decks still need fixing and optimizing but I feel more on the level to play with people here now. I'm not, but I feel like I am.

No offense here because getting to 5 is an accomplishment to be proud of, but a brand new player getting to 5 proves my point. Skill is no factor in Hearthstone.

Imagine being so bad at Hearthstone you have almost daily mental breakdowns because you have to go through so many hoops to excuse your losses

I started playing Even warlock (fight me) and it’s hella fun. Idk why they thought this spellstone was fair, s*** is way too strong.
Next game, Blink Fox finds Book of Spectres when Odd Rogue has an empty hand.

But it’s okay, CoolCly is here to tell us that was a skill based result.

I played obsessively in beta, then stopped until last month. And have played 600+ games since last month. But I make no claims to be skilled, so okay. Have a good day. :)

1 - Truesilver at 1, he played his second one and swung at me.


By this you are saying he had1 charge left on his truesilver but rather than use it he played a second and swung with it, yes?

Because there is a hypothetical scenario where that is correct.

Suppose its turn 9 and your correct usage of cards uses 5 mana from your hand, floating 4. It also requires you swing with a truesilver charge. Conveniently you also have a 10 mana play for next turn and would not be able to fit a re equip next turn.

So you opt to use the remaining 4 on truesilver which would give you a fresh 2 charge truesilver so in addition to your 10 mana play you have a weapon available to swing.

BUT you are playing against a deck that you feel might contain a Harrison Jones AND you have other weapons available to play on turn 11+ so the lost charge is not integral to your win% SO you re equip truesilver first and swing with that thus still giving you an available swing next turn but also playing around Harrison so your opponent would lose a draw.

.

Im not saying that's what happened, that was just a thought exercise to consider a situation where it is correct to use your weapon charges sub optimally.

Priest can be so infuriating to lose against sometimes. I was the priest in this situation, but it reminded me of a game that would make me hate priests.

I had control early on but kinda ran out of runway with my opponent floating around 13 health. Couldn't quite afford to over-extend and push for lethal, and knew in time I'd probably die.

Then I play mind vision and get fireball. "Ah HAAAaaa!" Then next turn the guy plays the 6 mana 4/10 who summons a random 2 drop for the opponent...and it gave me the 2/1 with deathrattle get a random mage card, which pulled pyroblast. I skillfully cast the fireball and the pyroblast at my opponent's face for lethal.

Didn’t you say you were new earler in this topic or took a years long break or something?
