How /sub/hearthstone users beg for upvotes

Is it just me or are these feeling forced af

The original was great because it was actually accurate - it covered all cards in Boomsday. The ones since then have just been cherry-picking.

And as I pointed out elsewhere, Mage is actually the only class with a reasonably consistent colour scheme.

And this is how this meme dies.

Not with a bang but with desperate reddit users.

Me for too long: "Those three photoshops are hilarious, but why is Stonehill Defender randomly here too?"

Barnabus is amazing, that should be the actual art

Wow, thanks everyone.

The 7 Stages of Reddit Meta Prediction Grief

The 7 Stages of Reddit Meta Prediction Grief

Anticipation (1 week before expansion)

(Class) is going to be broken, we know it's going to be broken. Why can't Blizzard see it, they are so completely incompetent! This game could be so good if we could just get a decent dev team who actually listened to the community instead of a bunch of corporate sellout retards who only care about selling packs. Well I'm certainly not going to pre-order! Okay so I will pre-order, but this is the last time and if the meta turns out as bad as we think, which of course it will then I am definitely not pre-ordering next time.

 

Denial (1 week after expansion)

(Class) is so broken! We knew it would be, it's so obvious! Looks at that game I just had there, they just cheesed me down with their overpowered crap on turn 16 there was nothing I could do about it! How can anybody be expected to play this broken game. I just hope they have the decency to nerf things quickly this time, not wait for 6 weeks like they usually do.

 

Patience (2 weeks after expansion)

Yes, I know what it said in the VS Data Reaper, (Class)'s dominance is not evident in the data yet, but that's because it's still really early in the expansion cycle and people are still experimenting with new stuff. When the meta settles you will see how dominant (Class) really is. You can already see signs of it at (insert tiny subsection of a subsection of the data) . Just you wait!

 

Bargaining (4-6 weeks after expansion)

Yes I know (Class) isn't on top of the meta now, but that's only because (other thing) is even more broken! We were right about Blizzard being terrible at card design, we just didn't understand the scale of how terrible that they would let (other thing) through. After they nerf it, all you will see is (Class) decks dominating instead and our prediction will be proven right anyway.

 

Diversion (8-10 weeks after expansion)

This game is way too expensive!!!

 

Rationalising (12-14 weeks after expansion)

Look, we never actually said (Class) was going to be overpowered. Yes, okay fine you dug up a link, well done, okay so we did say it, but we didn't really mean it like that. The whole point was less about how good (Class) would be and more about how Blizzard have continually ignored (Class2) that hasn't been viable for 3 metas straight now! (Class) get good cards every expansion why (Class2) get nothing, that was the real point we were trying to make!

 

Forgetting (16-17 weeks after expansion)

(Class2) is going to be so broken after the next expansion!

Look, we never actually said (Class) was going to be overpowered. Yes, okay fine you dug up a link, well done, okay so we did say it, but we didn't really mean it like that.

Alternately:

"No, see, there's a couple of moderately popular disagreeing comments in that thread! And I remember one 700 point contrarian post that hit the front page somewhere in the deluge of wall-to-wall 5k point posts about how this was the apocalypse. Clearly you're just cherry picking."

Actually broken in wild though

Thanks for the entertainment :)

Now I cant unsee it anymore :O

Awww I haven't even done mine about how I always see a flaming boar facing left instead of fire elemental

I don't get what the race to Karma is. I've been in reddit for 3 months and I straight up don't give a single fookeroo about the fact that people I'm talking to have 70k Karma or - 20k.

Mine is consecration looking like an observatory.

I've uncovered the secret to Blizzard's card art design process for mage cards

I've uncovered the secret to Blizzard's card art design process for mage cards

Full disclosure: I absolutely love this color scheme.

No disrespect to the artists, I think the art is fantastic in this expansion!

love the meteorologist

I wasn't going to let one measly card ruin my discovery!

The artists do a great job of harmonizing with the class border color. This is actually why I don't like gold cards. The artwork inside the cards is so carefully created to coincide with the border and they look great. But then when the borders are gold everything clashes with the artwork and looks loud and obnoxious. A little bit of gold edging around the borders of the card elements and a mild overlay to make it feel "shiny" would be much better imo. If people like the full gold cards though that's fine. I don't feel guilty at all about dusting gold cards, I get excited when I get one because of the extra dust.

Hearthside Chat: The Puzzle Labs with Giovanni Scarpati & Max Ma

On the hearthstone team, we believe that the best UI is invisible.

That explains so much. Everything we asked for over the years, it's been there all along!

TL;DW:

The Puzzle Lab is a new single-player puzzle mode.

You'll face each of the Head Scientists in Boom Labs and their assistants as you help them complete their experiments.

4 different kinds of puzzles: Lethal (where you try to kill your opponent), Survival (where you try and survive your opponent's turn), Board Clear (where you try to clear the board), and Mirror (where your goal is to copy your opponent's board state exactly)

All puzzles involve single-turn scenarios; no two-turn lethal set-ups or the like.

Over 100 different puzzles available with scaling difficulty; as soon as you finish one puzzle you'll load up the next!

To add to that:

End turn button is replaced with a restart button for convenience After beating a puzzle the next one is smoothly loaded Final puzzles are against Dr. Boom himself, the final one is "very difficult"

I'm actually way more hyped for this than the actual expansion - bring on the puzzles! Much more fun than playing against zoolock and druid every game.

A wooden hearthstone card I made

Truly a work of art. Much nicer than 3d printed.

I wood buy that.

Thank you! I actually own a 3d printer. Fun little machine.

You're in Luck

Now that we're doing misinterpreted card art, I for the longest while thought Baron Rivendare was a skinny angry skeleton holding a two handed sword.

Should change the card art to help new players. The red stick figure drawing is quite excellent.
