Welp, the Naxxramas expansion is coming up real soon, like, in just a couple days. At first I was like, “I’mma gonna have to save up to unlock dis”, but then I found out that the expansion can be unlocked any time, not just during the launch. So then I was like, “Fuckit, I’mma gonna buy Booster Decks”, because I’m playing with a limited selection of cards anyway. If I don’t get new cards, I’d just die more and it’d be harder to save up in the long run. Well, I’ve since bought like, 5 Booster Decks, and although I got a few decent cards outta those, I found they were pretty much non-factors in the games I’ve had since. In fact, the one card I got that’s proven to be semi-useful, is one I crafted myself. Some sorta Stealthed Imp that randomly gives +1 per end of turn. Which has proven to not be that GREAT from a practical standpoint, but great from a psychological standpoint.
Aaaaanyways, with the gold I earned today, I got the following:
First, the Commons. The Bloodsail Raider’s not useful to me at all at the moment, since I don’t usually play classes that are weapons heavy. Harvest Golem should be good. I encounter it a lot and it’s one that’s moderately annoying. Mogu’shan Warden might also be pretty good.
Then I opened the Rare Siphon Soul. Which, like the Harvest Golem and Mogu’shan Warden, is pretty good for me as I’ve been playing Zoolock a lot lately.
But then, the card that made me make my MG post here, the GOLDEN Epic Murloc Warleader. I’ve tried playing Murlock, and it’s pretty decent. But I really don’t have enough Murlocs to pull it off as effectively as it could be. But now… well, I still don’t have enough, but it’s a step in the right direction AND it’s a Golden.
So, Hearthstone in general. It’s okay. It usually takes me give or take 10 minutes per full match. That’s great when I wanna pass some time away. Like if I’m doing a buncha downloads, I can play a game or two while it progresses. Win/Loss-wise, I seem to be losing at a ratio of 3 or 4 to 1, but it’s not quite as frustrating as it was a few weeks ago, because a few weeks ago, the game seemed to keep pitting me with far superior players. Guys who seemed to have nothing but Rares, Epics and Legendaries.
I’m getting Miracle Rogued quite a bit lately as well, but generally speaking, these days, I’m mostly schooled by guys who are simply playing better than me. I can’t complain when they’re using the same mix of Basic and just a couple Common/Rare cards as I am. Their draws aren’t always great either. Again, I was simply beaten by better playing, and I’m fine with that.
It does get a tad frustrating when the gamebreaker is a Legendary they manage to field, but at least they aren’t fielding nigh nothing but Legendaries like some games I’ve had. It’s annoying when the other guy keeps getting exactly the card they need too, but I’ve won quite a few games where the other guy obviously wasn’t getting anything good, so I can’t complain about that either.
Welp, that’s it for now. Just gloating because I got the Golden version of a mid-tier card.
