Re: Hoosier Buddy?

I took a look at the game and some of the reviews and it looked interesting, but I concluded that it was highly likely to sit in my Steam library unplayed for a long time. ('Steep learning curve' + lots of other games competing for my [more]

Re: Good Arena Resource

That looks playable, but not great. There are some pretty bad cards in there in the lower part the curve at least, which (given that you picked strictly off the spreadsheet) suggests that you were offered some bad choices.

The upper half of [more]

Re: Good Arena Resource

There's also a list by Trump on LiquidHearth, broken down by class, which goes into some more detail on why he thinks each pick is good/bad. It's a bit out of date though and hasn't been updated for Naxx.

I still rely on this list quite a [more]

Re: State of the Union

Congrats. I think all the 'draw a card' minions are why you got fatigued first, especially the Novice Engineers, but you probably guessed that. I imagine you had a strong mid-late game due to all the cards though.

Re: State of the Union

No real money, and until reading this post, I've probably only spent gold to buy 2 or 3. I just bought 5 more and am considering buying the next Naxx area and then spending the rest of the gold I have on more card packs. I didn't realize that once [more]

Re: State of the Union

I'll give it a shot. I think my frustration around cards has been about more than just feeling like I don't have the cards I need, but that feeling can be compounded when I feel like I get blindsided by a card that I never knew existed - it all [more]

Re: State of the Union

I don't actually focus that much on rank - typically I just play enough to complete dailies and then play Arena to build my collection. I do tend to rank up to the 12-14 range pretty quickly at the start of a new season, so I'm guessing that's about [more]

Re: State of the Union

Some good tips there.

1. Keep the enemy's board clear. Sometimes it's tempting to go face just get the satisfaction of getting your opponent's health lower, but you're almost always better off killing minions. This is true even if you [more]

Re: State of the Union

First of all, I've never spent any real money on the game (not even Naxx) and I do OK (highest rank 10) so it is possible. Real money helps with building your card collection quicker and not much else (and it's not all that efficient at [more]

Re: Naxxramas difficulties

LOL. That happens in Constructed as well. Deathlord is a great card for some classes/decks, but every so often it will just lose the game for you outright. I expect CaptainNorway is having a lot of fun with his Deathwing card after [more]

Re: Naxxramas difficulties

My advice would be to persevere. Remember, you only have to beat him once to get credit and unlock the card. You can try as often as you want. Once you have a boss down you'll probably feel a lot better about the whole thing. Based on my experience, [more]

Re: Jealous Neighbors

Well, recognizing that a particular solution is impossible (and then proving it) is part of mathematics, as LorenCobb says. For example, you could think of the Riemann hypothesis as requiring a proof of impossibility, and if you could come up with a [more]

My point is that maybe the author isn't requiring it to be from the original position. Maybe you can move up/down, side/side
from your subsequent positions after the initial move. Again, the problem doesn't seem to prohibit this

Re: Jealous Neighbors

If the assumption is that every apartment is occupied by exactly one person, then I think the answer is that it can't be done.

I've not gotten the hang of huntard decks. I like the concept, and love its hero power, but for some reason I seldom play one.

Hunter decks are all about combos, being opportunistic, and making the best use of the cards you have. It [more]

I think I have a fairly standard Hunter deck with 2 Starving Buzzards, 2 Unleash the Hounds, 2 Timber Wolves, etc. -- with a King Krush (one of my few legendaries), to boot. Eaglehorn Bow, two Tundra Rhinos, etc. Even though the cards in this deck [more]
