Actually comparable cards hurt consistency more since most comparable cards we have suck. We're now twice as likely to be passed Wisp or Booty Bay Bodyguard or Magma Rager, etc.

I mean there's also examples of Frostbolt vs Forgotten Torch levels of comparison as well

 

 

 

Frostbolt is better than Forgotten Torch 9/10 times. And the fact that they both exist lowers consistency. If you already drafted 2 Frostbolts, getting passed a Torch instead of, idk like a Flamestrike or something, gives you a worse deck. If you get passed a torch instead of a Frostbolt, it gives you a worse deck. You're not twice as likely to get Frostbolt if torch exists, you're less likely to get the better card and more likely to get a worse card.

In the context of arena, it's very marginally worse than Frostbolt. This is the point I'm making. Yes it's worse, but if it's by 1% it really doesn't matter.

I was too busy in the beginning of the season w/ school and work to try and climb to legend, so I just didn't try lol. I will try again next season for sure.

Climbing gets easier and easier as the season goes on, you've got close to 2 weeks you can do it I believe in you

I've hit rank 11 already this season, which isn't a super big accomplishment by any stretch, but last month it took me the whole season to hit that, and now I have two weeks to just kind of push my own personal ceiling and see how far I can get. And I'm hyped for that. :D

 

Gotta believe and feel good about setting reasonable goals and making them. I just got my first hero to 100 wins. That's awesome for 2.5 months of playing with all 9 heroes. lol

Larger card pool = less predictable drafts

 

Lower predictability hurts consistency

I think Blizz at least acknowledges that that problem exists, which is probably why they use the 20% offering bonus towards new cards for each new expansion. You have at least some expectation of the odds of what you draft in addition to whatever existing class card bias exists. The problem I find is what happens when you don't balance out the classes or attempt to keep the core "flavor" of what they do. Or even give them anything USEFUL as their class (common) cards become diluted.

You can also use the hearthstone deck tracker. It's nice. Good to show me how shitty my opening hand is before I even see it!

 

So demotivated to climb past rank 10 with all the aggro shaman. Very annoying.

for whatever reason everytime i actually try during a season i can hit 5+ easily early in the season when it's supposedly harder but as the season goes on i get stuck in the 5-3 range even though multiple people have said it's easier to climb later to legend

i was gonna get the heartharena overlay when they were about to release it but I heard a lot of negative stuff about how it runs off an app that bogs down your computer etc.

 

I just keep track of cards played/remaining in deck in my head and it's worked out fine for me

Yeah. Like wtf it's just one game.
I'm sure youve wasted countless hours on Hearthstone. 1 game wont kill you.

I ended up not logging onto HS until Monday, I was just very busy.

Really focus to identify your mistakes and fix them. Stagnation occurs from continuously making the same mistakes. There are plenty of tools to help with this, from deck trackers and stat recording to just having someone watch your games and discuss plays with you. This helps because the correct play is often unintuitive and going through your options with someone else may open your eyes to plays you didn't even consider. Not to mention they can tell you when you make stupid plays.

 

Also playing top tier decks (secret paladin, burn shaman, druid) doesn't hurt. They're good for a reason. As lame as it sounds, just copying some pro's deck list (Ostkaka's secret paladin hint hint) that they hit #1 with can help you a lot. This way you can just focus on the technical play instead of second guessing yourself about how good the deck your playing is.

Been laddering with aggro pally since I just started trying to ladder this season. 

Went relatively quick from ranks 18-9. I guess I'll just keep playing it. Although it's not very fun to play for long periods of time. I'm testing Avenges and a copy of Scientist in the deck. I'm not sure on the Scientist overall but it seems decent with double Avenge, Avenge has been bonkers though. With the Hero Power/Muster/Creeper/etc it's not difficult to set up a board for it to trigger. Its a 3 damage swing for a single mana which is cool but raising the health has been the most important. When it triggers on something with Divine Shield then perf.

Finally got out of my losing streak by switching to Zoo. Has good matchups vs Secret Paladin, RenoLock, Aggro Shaman, and Druid, which is all I've been seeing on ladder lately. Beats Mech/Tempo Mage too which comes up on occasion. A few stars into Rank 5 now, might actually try to go for legend for once in the next few days just because Zoo has been doing super well for me right now.

If I play versus one more Priest deck I'm throwing my laptop across the room.
