Welcome back to Holy Shock! I use to go on talking about Paladins and what not, but lately I have been stuck on Hearthstone! So why should we break the mold today? Last night I logged in and was met with the achievement where you need to play forty minions that cost two or less, and being the achievement addicted fool that I am... I quickly made me this Hunter deck in all of five seconds. Well, maybe not five seconds, but you get the idea that I placed no thought into its creation whatsoever, right?
My goal was to sling down as many low cost minions as I could before my portrait shattered in agonizing shame. Alright, there really is nothing agonizing about losing... unless you actually would lose to this deck! We all know that that would never happen... right?
I am terribly sorry to the poor players who actually lost, I honestly had no intention of trying to win. Had you just kept on chugging away, I am sure you would have seen the futility of my deck; however, you chose to end it all! I suppose I should have been happy, but these two made me actually play a couple more games than I had originally intended! Now they got me thinking of crossing over to the dark side and making a face Hunter! Alright, settle down... settle down! I promise that I am not going to be making any sort of face Hunter in the near future. I do find it funny that so many players tend to concede before they really know if the match is truly out of their reach. Hang in there guys! Worse case scenario is some player is going to clear your minions, blast your portrait, and you are out what a minute or two more? C'mon! Help me avoid these terrible thoughts of creating these decks!
So while I am somewhat complaining, if you can call it that, let me throw a shout out to the players who took it way too serious! Do you really need to run the rope half way down on every turn? I get that you are trying to think out every possible play, but seriously... just throw some cards down and smash the little fellows to bits! I think it was just RNG having one more fun moment at my expense. He wants to lose! Pft... that ain't gonna happen! Well, I am happy to say that eventually I managed to run out my poor little forty minions and earn, yes I said earn, my dang achievement! I'll see you all next time!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and that your Monday is kicking off another great week. Over the weekend, I put in a lot of time playing Hearthstone. I had some positive things happen, like hitting rank 14, and then some really bad things happen... like going on a big losing streak. Now I could blame RNG for disliking me by dropping multiple Doomsayers or encountering players who were absolutely terrible, but then I would have to admit that perhaps my winning streak was nothing but RNG. So rather than admit that perhaps I am really bad at this game, I would rather focus on the positive!
For example, I made the decision to swap out a few cards and add in Hellfire and Bane of Doom. The Hellfire addition was extremely useful in helping me decimate a couple players I ran into; however, every time I faced a Hunter, it appeared as if my Hellfire cards and taunts were mysteriously removed from my deck. Is there a secret Hunter ability that removes all such cards?
The deck appears to be extremely effective against Magi. To my knowledge, since I started my run, I have only lost to one Mage and that was due to an unfortunate Doomsayer spawning late in the game. I would also note that the Mage was a mech Mage as well. I wish I could remember their name because they played flawlessly and seemed to know exactly what I was planning to do.
I am not going to lie to you all, there were times where I wanted to switch decks and play a more conventional deck, if there really is one, but I just really like how this deck is handling. Perhaps next month I will run a different deck, but for the remainder of this month... YOUR SOUL SHALL BE MINE!!!!
Happy Thursday all! I hope you all are doing absolutely great today! Today's post is going to be a short one, but I have pictures!!!!! I hit rank 15 yesterday! I am pretty pleased with the overall success of the deck. I do believe though that this weekend I may tweak a few cards around to provide a little more protection against face decks.
I had a good friend who spent his evening Tuesday throwing various decks at me. While some of the decks won by sheer RNG, others won by shining the light on the weakness of my ability to clear a board. So that having been said, I believe that this weekend we will look to tweak the deck slightly in hopes of adding in a little protection against these decks.
I did also manage to sneak my way into WoW yesterday and was working on cleaning up my bank some. I have been kicking the idea around of making a major change there and if I do decide to act, then I must be prepared! Look for more WoW updates in the near future!
In other gaming news, I received my beta access to Star Craft II: Legacy of the Void at the end of April; however, I did not notice this till late yesterday. I did download and hop into it, but there seemed to be only one other player online who was completely out of my class in terms of skill. So sadly, I really have nothing to report on there yet, but keep your eyes around here because I promise to bring you all the terrible game-play I can! Well, I think that is going to do it for me today. Catch you all next time!
I think that this deck has potential and I certainly want to try to take it as far as I possibly can. How far will that be? Well, that I do not know, but I do know that it will be a fun ride! I think that is going to do it for today, below are some screenshots from this deck in action. I hope y'all have a great day and I'll see you next time!
