Upcoming Reckless Experimenter Card Change

Yes it is a public image problem. You are trying to argue how it is because of how it ought to be when you can’t really do that as a reliable path to truth.

“If there were no aliens in Area 51, the government would let us in there and see”

You will lead yourself to false conclusions doing this.

We are telling you that this is an industry admittance of a mistake. To actually make an announcement with what they wrote instead of just patch notes.

You’re making a conclusion that they are meaning something that they aren’t saying just because “that’s just the way it’s done”. I’m saying they aren’t admitting the oversight (nor expressing gratitude to the players for presenting it) based on pride and ego.

I’m not saying it’s right. I would rather they involve their community more like they used to (when they actually were an indie company) but this is, from experience, how blizzard and other large entities communicate.

When blizzard says ‘an announcement is coming SOON’ we know what that means, the announcement for the announcement is half a year away.

The language is ambiguous, but in the context of blizzard, it is not ambiguous and we’ve told you what that is. From one statement, it would still be ambiguous, but we have context from years of blizzard statements and from business communication culture to be smarter than a simple parser of words.

I would like to have you over for dinner.

Clearly this is ambiguous without context, BUT, it would be idiotic to equate both interpretations of this phrase as equally uncertain. Do you see what I mean?

You say “pride and ego” as if a corporation is just one single feeling entity — it’s not. The person who wrote that is not the one who missed the interaction and is also not the one who is going to fix it.

I read this when you first posted it, but somehow ended up back here again reading a second time. After the sentence cited above I heard:


P.S. - Shouldn’t we be able to share short clips of videos by requesting a start and stop time, rather than just a start time that plays the rest of the videos and queues a commercial that ruins the linked reference? If you get a commercial it breaks the message continuum.

Priest has a ton of variety. Nearly very class does. It just all sucks for priest. The basic cards suck. Nearly all of their new card suck. And they suck not just in general but in comparison to like cards in other classes. Take experimenter for example. Even before being nerfed it was a way worse version of a card hunter has. Hell, two cards and it was worse than both of them.

How? The combo doesn’t need any 0 cost deathrattles no?

I’m sure every class wishes they could res their minions a few times over.

Could you imagine? King Krush Res?


6 months later and nothing, “Keeping an eye” my murloc. I hope Blizzard employees hire caretakers because I can’t stand the though of them keeping an eye on their children, they’d end up on Mars unnoticed.


crap another pathetic necrobumper

…they should start locking threads after 1 month of inactivity


But its still relevant, so no lock needed.


thats a lie necrobumpers want you to believe

why would you believe for example a thread from july complaining about what wasnt nerfed is relevant ?

there is no reason threads should not autolocked after 1 or 2 months to stop necrobumping

The comment being addressed is relevant. Stop being dense, it was old 2 years ago.

The complaint is that despite the official claim of blizzard monitoring the card in wild, it has become Nagalock on steroids. It is still relevant today, therefore not necroing.

If you honestly believe Sniplock is fine, then you are not very intelligent. Its not asking too much for blizzard to live up to their words. The very fact this comment was made 6 months ago, and has not been addressed, let alone commented on, only supports the “necro-bumpers” stance.


you know i was talking about all old threads i made it pretty obvious on my first post
only reason we dont have years old threads bumped is because we moved to a new forum

But we are told to use the search function before creating a post, and post in there if it covers your topic before creating a new thread. The bumpers complaint is very relevant in this case, so why shouldnt he bump the thread?


oh that ?

topic already being discussed on front page

and this guy cant pretend he didnt know about it

That topic does not address this comment:

What better place to hope for communication than in the very thread said comment was made?


why should it addressed i see no reason for it
people were expecting the deck to dominate the meta at all ranks

and it didnt

and this guy doesnt care about it he just wants to argue for the sake of arguing

he even did with you …who werent disagreeing with him!
btw i laughed when saw that

No more than its (nerfed) predecessor, Nagalock, which was a nothing in comparison. This deck can produce more stats, just as quickly, and has 2 back-up plans if it fails. Yes, its busted. There is a reason its the most represented deck in the top 100.

Arguing for the sake of arguing? Maybe if there wasnt a valid point behind the arguments your point would hold more water, but there is a VERY valid point behind his complaint.

But, hey, Hearthstone is pretty much just a auto-battler atm, with an invite only policy for the actual card game at the highest level. So why even bother with standard balance, let alone wild?!?


The deck boasts an inarguable Tier 0 spot in the Wild meta, where its worst tiered matchup is literally itself. It generates boards identical to Nagalock (except it can do it twice and still has Mecha’Thun) abusing the same mechanics as Reckless Experimenter. Both Experimenter and Naga were fixed for very obvious and very understandable reasons, so there’s no reason this deck shouldn’t be either.

I can sympathize with the necrobumper too. Blue posts are so rare on these forums that its easy to believe they don’t care enough to check on new topics/posts, so it stands to reason that the next best thing is to reply in a place where Blue personnel are known to have spoken about a particular topic.
