Sucks. Both my favourite organization and favourite players. I respect their want to capitalize, but with Hearthstone in the position it's in it was clear that was never going to happen. Gotta side with my boy Reynad on this one.

Yeah...from what Reynad is saying, Hearthstone is growing as a playerbase, but interest in Hearthstone pro play is shrinking.

I feel for the pro players, though, in that as you get better at a job, you want your salary to increase, but I've watched a lot of esports where...nope, salary for pro players just has a downward trend.

Tried Crystal Portal twice. In both games I drew a minion on turn 2.

This game is such f***ing garbage. Any deck I play runs in the worst possible way and it’s f***ing old. Absolutely unreal anyone defends this RNG idiocy.

Crystalportal isn’t exactly a keep card, it’s more of a topdeck Card when you don’t have any threats in hand card (plus most Token Druid minions are relatively easy to dump other than Vargoth)

Also, feel like esports is on the downswing lately in all games as it’s more about just watching fun personalities on twitch ala Ninja but that’s another story entirely

Every time I've watched crystalsong portal in token druid it's been pretty meh, TBH. In that the cards it produced were bad and often not worth playing. (It's also really not what you want to do on turn 2 anyway; you want to play a minion or create some minions not add cards to your hand unless you've got exactly coin wispering woods next turn).

You also need to run it in the almost pure spell version of the deck, which is not really the version I want to be running. (I'd rather run Microtech Controller, doomsayer, maybe an eccentric scribe, maybe some dendrologists). Like...Crystalsong Portal only makes sense in the version of the deck running Wrath and Mark of the Loa and almost zero minions.

It’s needed for reach. Control decks dump on me.

I also love when someone on B8 does the 80g thing and realizes I’m not making any of this crap up. They draw/rng perfectly and I sit there doing next to nothing. This time I got to draw Malygos immediately after tutoring Jepetto, on the turn I would have played Jepetto and gotten Maly for 1.

I have to say, the best way to win with mech bomb hunter is to have a venomissile on the field and summon Flark.

Can confirm, Ulti was the only time I played Token Druid and won in dominant fashion.

I like spell version more but it’s mainly cause I think Wrath is just too damn valuable to ditch and Keeper works great with it and POTW. Loa’s Not terrible either, buffing a treant’s won me the mirror match a few times

(This does not make me mad when playing friends, fyi.)

But imagine being me on ranked.

Case in point. Mage gets to RNG luna’s pocket galaxy and then immediately draw Antonidas.

I only get bad matchups, bad rng, and bad draws. I am 100% convinced my account is flagged for this crap.
