Ben Brode Rejects Reckful With Straight Fire

Ben Brode Rejects Reckful With Straight Fire

FWIW, I have nothing to do with choosing who casts. :)

And when I met Reckful at BlizzCon a few years back, he was super nice!

That Reckful is pretty sad with the cannot be a caster adapt

ik ik, I just found the tweet hilarious!

This is why you don't burn bridges folks.

How Blizzard screwed people for the Wild Top 64 Tournament

How Blizzard screwed people for the Wild Top 64 Tournament

Edit: https://www.reddit.com/sub/hearthstone/comments/6cz2p4/update_hearthstone_wild_open_qualifications/ Blizzard has changed their minds! Thanks to all the people of Reddit who got behind this and thanks to Blizzard, for taking their time to change this.

So last month there was an announcement that top 64 wild on all servers go to some big tournament. This is a quick story on how blizzard screwed us for no communication.

For some reason blizzard didn't release ANYTHING on this until today, the end of the month. http://blizz.ly/WildOpenRules Now they dropped the bomb on us, that you must be part of your own region to compete. keep in mind all NZL / AUS play on US servers, but must play on ASIA. This is after many many many hours of climbing, helping my friends climb to get into the top 10, for a safe spot (i was r3 legend).

Now the problem we all have, is the fact they didn't release ANYTHING until the 22nd, how am i meant to know that if i'm from New Zealand OR AUS i must rank up on ASIA because when i first played this game, i was put into the US by default. So i'd assume by playing on the US i could qualify (we all thought we could get it on any server).

I had many friends of mine rank up on all 3 servers, going for top 64, trying to maximize their chances for a spot and i know for a fact at least 10-15 people who have gotten top 64 on the wrong damn server. I even know this one guy who took the whole month off work. Just to get his ranking on the wrong server.

So here i am, 8 days out getting MEMEd on ASIA, until the end of the season and i must do it IN RECORD time because i had no idea of this.

Sure you can attack me for being dumb without knowing the INFO. But i mean come on its a $25k prize pool, ofc i'm going to give it my best shot. There's just to much money involved for them to mess it up. This is just an online tournament. So no one can figure out why there's such strict rules on the regions or even why NZ / AUS, now should only play on ASIA.

TLDR - SALT

EDIT: Update from Blizzard here

Here's the official Blizzard Support article which clearly states that those in Australia and New Zealand should play in the Americas region for all games, including Hearthstone. It's completely fucked if they have special rules on how this works for this tournament.

 

Battle.net Global Play allows you to connect to game servers in regions outside your own, making it easy to play with your friends in other parts of the world. Global Play is available for Diablo III, StarCraft II, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch. By default, you will play in your home region, which is determined by the country of residence registered to your Battle.net account.

Global Play Regions

Americas for players in North America, Latin America, South America, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. Note: Southeast Asia is a separate region in StarCraft II.

Europe for players in the European Union, Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Asia for players in South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.

I don't understand this at all, blizzard have always said if you're AU play on NA as that's where everyone from AU is directed, and every standard tournament I've been to uses NA too, but now for Wild they want you to use a different server, and decide to not tell players until it's almost too late despite telling people to use NA since day one? This is uh, really freaking crap.

This is totally ridiculous.

http://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Region states that

"The Americas region officially covers the two American continents as well as Australia and New Zealand. Additionally, a number of South and Southeast Asian countries play in the region."

Even the login screen on Hearthstone shows "Americas and Southeast Asia" as a region.

It is not right that players such as myself (I'm from Singapore) who have been putting in a month of grinding to get top 64 (Currently in the 70s with a 52nd place finish last season) should get shut out of the tournament due to this announcement at this late date. There is no reason why Southeast Asian players should magically be shifted into the Asia region instead of the Americas and Southeast Asia region and be disqualified for it.

I've sent this thread to a blizz contact, GL getting it sorted.

Edit: I'm being told the US Esports team is looking into this, so it doesn't seem like a final call has been made quite yet. I'll update with more if I learn anything new.

This is amazing. I lost it when he "sacrificed his daughter" but it worked, so he sent his other daughter in.

Is this what Ben Brode meant when he said that RNG creates stories?

Not sure what you mean, that was pure skill

The familia always comes first, even over your own family.

Today, I closed Hearthstone and it quitted without crashing. AMA.

Edit 1: ho shit, RIP mailbox

Edit 2: I will answer more tomorrow when back home from work and having my laptop. Good night all.

What phone are you using?

When you never open HS, it can never crash.

Define "quitted"

The only winning move is not to play

It would be cool if cards stolen/burgled from you had your cardback.

It would be cool if cards stolen/burgled from you had your cardback.

Like if a priest thoughtsteals 2 cards from you, you can tell which they are by them having your cardback. If a rogue burgles, same deal. Then it could be applied to other cards too, like created cards (ex: from babbling book) could have the vanilla cardback. Idk why this came to me but I wanted to share.

Edit of EDIT: top post of subreddit thank you guys for liking my idea!

Sure it does. It just is the same card back.

I agree. That'd be a cool small detail. It also has practical reasons to help keep track of what your opponent discovered, stole, etc.

Thank you /u/alwaysstatesobvious

but burgle is from your opponent's class, not from your opponent's deck, so it would not make sense there

Can we finish the Rouge Quest by same name DIFFERENT cards?

Can we finish the Rouge Quest by same name DIFFERENT cards?

When the card text is actually consistent.

I'm not the only one expecting the Imps to fail after the Slimes succeeded, right?

That's very interesting, I mean you'd expect it just by reading the card text but we all know how inconsistent that can be sometimes. I'm assuming it would also work for Druid's treants as they are also tokens.

I'm curious if it'd work for Wisp (there's that wild card that gives minions +1/+1 or summons wisps) since some can be nontokens. I'm assuming it'd work. I'm also curious if Druid transform minions count as 2 toward quest since I remember them casting 2 spells during that Tavern Brawl where you cast a spell every time a minion is summoned played.

I know where you're coming from, but the code that would have to exist for THAT kind of inconsistency... I shudder to even imagine.

It's a free card...

It's a free card...

FIGHT PROMOTER ALLOWS ME TO DRAW TWO MORE CARDS. I WILL START MY TURN BY PLAYING FIGHT PROMOTER WHICH ALLOWS ME TO DRAW TWO MORE CARDS. I WILL PLAY THE MAGIC CARD, FIGHT PROMOTER, WHICH ALLOWS ME TO DRAW TWO NEW CARDS.

I hate when people say HS is p2w
This card is useless.

A video from Ben Brode? I should flair this as Blizzard Official. seemslegit

Fool Proof Plan To Get Everyone 400 Dust (100% Guaranteed to work)

Fool Proof Plan To Get Everyone 400 Dust (100% Guaranteed to work)

So tomorrow blizzard will be giving out the card "Fight Promoter" for logging in. Now that's 100 free dust, but you know whats better than 100 dust...? 400 dust! And how do we turn that 100 into 400 you may ask?

We all play fight promoter in every single deck, every single game, until Blizzard is forced to nerf the card due to it being an auto-include in so many decks.

Boom 400 dust right there. 100% guaranteed to work or your money back!

HS HOF: rag, sylvannas, PO, ice lance, drake, conceal

and fight promoter.

If everyone ran Fight Promoter, though, then the win rate of Fight Promoter decks is only 50%.

If anyone's interested, there's a much faster method:

Craft Golden Fight Promoter now. Then, Blizz will give you a free Fight Promoter so you no longer need a golden one. Dust the golden for 400 dust. EZ

Acolyte of Pain changes

Acolyte of Pain changes

What if AoP was hit by minions, it would moan depending on the attack of the minion that hit it.

Ex. 1 attack: oooh yes 7 attack : oooOOOHH YESSS 12 attack: AHHHH YEAHHH

Edit: Damn. Front page. Acolyte was not played in vain.

Every day we stray further from God

12 attack: AHHHH YEAHHH

Will probably be my reaction when someone throws his Deathwing into my Acolyth instead of my face

Y'all motherfuckers need jesus

New entry sound for acolyte: 'fisting...is 300 bucks'

Attack sound: 'you like embarrassing me huh?'

Death sound: 'the leather club's two blocks down'

New features coming to Hearthstone

so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.

Best part here haha

I won't lie, I expected much more after reading the title

YES The fact that gold and normal cards now stack is what i've been waiting for forever!
