As several Hearthstone players have correctly pointed out, I didn't quite explain some of Shudderwock's properties correctly/fully. While an "infinite loop" didn't occur precisely as I described, it was still possible with the combination of Grumble, Worldshaker, Saronite Chain Gang, and Murmuring Elemental. If you'd like to learn precisely how all of it worked, there are plenty of in-depth articles that can explain it (and the rest of the card game) in great detail. Feel free to Google something like "How The Shudderwock Combo Works". Don't listen to some filthy casual like me.

+J-ROD Jarred Venema youre right Hearthstone is bad because to build a good deck in a decent amount of time you need to drop money on cards you dont own. At least in Vanguard I can resell my cards for pretty good value.

Hi @austinmcconnell or +austinmcconnell 12:08 Well I guess it would break immersion... But a code would have to be included on the card either UPC or QR code requiring card backs and some sort of serial number system.

The game breaks when you believe in the heart of the cards and the exact card you need is drew every fucking time until you win.

They do compensate for nerfed/changed cards by allowing you to to disenchant them for their full cost

Spoiler alert... This video is NOT about how to break card games, as the intro suggested :D It's about that one combo that made austin rage quit Hearthstone explained in great detail and then he goes on to talk about game developer ethics for a hot minute. It was fantastic and got me thinking. But I'm still confused as to what the true purpose of this video was... !?

Spending money on Hearthstone? lmao

Online card games can change the text whenever they want. But the good thing about that is you can still play that card in your deck. Buy in real life card games if a card gets banned any final replacement for the card no matter what. And if you spend $20 on that card in real life, you just waste. Real life cars only worth the playability of the card. And if the car gets ban in automatically turns into a useless or very casual card. In the case of hearthstone if they never called you could still use it. They're having Nerf to card I could still use, over a card that I completely lost money on and can't use it anymore. What's compare Hearthstone and MTG. Carpas nerfed in HS you can still use it. If one gets nerved another words banned in MTG. You will need to do research to see what the best replacement for the card you lost is. That means you're in the hole for two cards or more. One for the car that you're replacing and the one that you're buying to replace it. In the case of Pokemon and MTG. He have rotating sets so you're always s*** out of luck when it a set rotates out. So you need buy a completely new deck.

My only reply is that, with all the other crazy cards HS has, Shudderwock is comparatively fair. So now I just need to see when this video was posted 🙃.

At least you didn't delve into MTG. Worse combos. More annoying combos. Nothing but combos holy shit. The games extended life breeds cancer into game modes that have no age or set limitations, like commander and modern, with old cards making disgusting and treacherous wins at the play of a single card in conjunction with few other cards.

Watching this 2 months later, there is probably already someone who have commented on this, but I'm fairly certain that in the Terms of service from blizzard, they tell you that they own your account, which is saying that they can ban you at any point if they deem it fitting etc. and to a certain extension that would also mean that, they do own your 'cards' in hearthstone or atleast so I would imagine to a certain degree.

Some games allow you to go back to older versions not most online games though.
Buddyfight is currently broken. With Lost World monsters, highest critical of a whooping *8* , and by default buddyfight rules, you begin a fight with 10 life unless you have a special flag, I’d say Lost World is too OP. The only disadvantage Lost World users have is that it cannot be used as a initial flag, so the opponent can use that time frame to beat the opponent down (which is very unlikely) before the opponent activates <Belost> and changes to Lost World and get the Lost Deck full of OP things. Search up “Lost World deck Lost Dimension” and find some videos with a card review and you will get what I mean. Thancc, MadRobloxGuy2017 / ULTRAWEEB
+Merciless Mode Sorry, I never tried playing CardFight Vanguard, only heard of it. I only play buddyfight.

as a kid playing Yu Gi Oh, these cards would be mutually agreed to be banned from decks. Made the game more fun by having it be self balanced. Maybe with some kind of rare cards you could counter this very strong less rare one, but we dd still go ahead and ban it since we don't have those rare cards. It was all about figuring a strat with common cards to win, nothing pay to win, nothing op. ..we even banned cards we didn't know exactly how they worked, we were kids and we weren't native in English (plus non had internet to google these stuff...)

This is why Minecraft gives you every version released when you bUy the game because sometimes you want the game to play the same way every time you play and sometimes you want to see the new mechanics.

You've obviously never played Magic if you think 20 minutes is too long lol the only formats that have super fast games are Legacy, Vintage, and Modern, and even those can have 20 minute + long matches
Merciless Mode (18 hours ago)
Vintage matches last 5 minutes tops unless theres a stall deck Edh lasts 15 assuming a t1 or t0 deck, legacy lasts 7 and modern lasts 15 Standard is the only format that averages slower than 20 at a competitive level

The most annoying part about this comment section is all the idiots saying DURR IT'S NOT PAY TO WIN when Hearthstone is ridiculously pay to win, if you're going to play in the standard format. getting each exact card you need takes so much dust, and god forbid you need legendaries. I played before expansions started hitting all the time, maybe got Naxx and whatever was after that, and realized if I didn't pay into each expansion, I wasn't going to say in the top 5 tiers of the ranked ladder much longer. I dropped the game because I wasn't going to grind for shit, and I'm not going to pay for cards that have *zero* value once the game is gone. At least I could resell my Magic shit, at least I could sell my Force of Will shit off, can't do anything about all that time I put into Hearthstone back at launch. This is the problem with 'card games' in general. So many new sets come out, if you don't have the pockets to stay relevant, then you're stuck in middling boredom for time immemorial. You sure as fuck won't be able to stay relevant without lucking into good cards, that's for sure. I'm done with grinding in games, LoL made me do that shit way too long, not gonna have Hearthstone sucker me into it too.

LastFractionZero (3 days ago)
What happens when you break a cardgame? You make money. That's the entire idea. You release an expansion containing one or two cards that dominate the meta. People pay to get the meta dominating cards while at the same time complaining that they've becoming an absolute necessity. After an initial purchasing rush sales begin to dwindle. As vocal dissatisfaction over those cards grows the potential risk for blowback from nerfing or banning the cards is being reduced. Once dissatisfaction starts reaching a fever pitch you can then "listen to the community" and nerf or ban the cards. Repeat the same process with the next expansion.

You dont have to watch your self losing you can just press Esc and then concade and you can que for next game ! Like alot of ppl said it seems you never played HS !
Rose Doesn't Know (3 days ago)
You know that agreement you don't even read before playing an online TCG? That agreement sums up to be, "You don't actually own these cards and we don't need to compensate you for any reason"
iOhzZoHD (3 days ago)
When you ask me, HS should just get some kind of Test-Server, that they can test new cards before they release them ... And i mean, isnt it better to get a game constantly patched? There are or were games you just couldnt play, bcs they are/were full of bugs (Gothic 3 for example). In my opinion every devs out there should create Test-Servers to keep the game up to date and balanced TOGETHER WITH THEIR DAMN COMMUNITIES *cough* riot, bluehole, activision ... *cough*

Thing is there are infinites in mtg and when one happens typically every just under stands te player who went infinite won so that player then either leaves (most often especially if there is time for another match) or the player decides who loses first.

I don’t think you could do the Yugioh combo turn one, you can only normal summon one monster a turn and if a minion costs 6 like turtle it requires a sacrifice. Either way that’s irrelevant cause turn two you can do it

In magic there are literally hundreds of decks who's only goal is to create an infinite combo as fast as possible. There was a deck called flash hulk in the format legacy that could win the game before your first turn.

I like the idea you tried to do here but, you never played the deck. Its pretty obvious the way you describe him working. Also, leaving out the dusting and crafting mechanic in Hearthstone is pretty misleading. I'm honestly worried about how honest the rest of your content is.

Low win rate? I saw someone in the comments here claim Shudderwock had a 50% winrate when it first came out.

By this dude's logic deathrattle activates when any card dies charge makes adjacent minions able to atack on the first turn their played too poisonous works on heroes discover shows you ten cards ispire activates when any card is played adapt combines the stats of adjacent minions I could go on making false hs effects but I think you get the point here.

I never thought of it that way, since everything in those games is Blizzards property, you're basically paying loads of money for nothing. Including other companies.
Evan Griggs (5 days ago)
The only way around this issue would be to charge a price at the beginning, and then NO purchases that affect gameplay. Overwatch and Dota 2 (Free game anyway) do this well. While games like league are free, they constantly update champions, maybe nerfing the champion a day after you spend $10 on it.

Bad research about Shudderwock and Hearthstone in general.
Theriomancer (5 days ago)
Unlike physical card games in Hearthstone cards can be buffed/nerfed, (reducing a spell's cost, reducing a minion's attack, completely changing the way an effect works, etc.) so while Hearthstone can have a flawed expansion it can not be truly broken. Also your "Oh you gotta spend a shit load of money" statement is incorrect, you could craft cards by disenchanting other cards for dust. Yes Shudderwock would need *A LOT* of dust but you could feasibly do it with enough work and not spend a single penny to do so. Also *NO* The game makers are not obligated to compensate you if you are dumb enough to waste so much money looking for X card and it gets nerfed, nerfs and buffs are a part of online game play and players have to role with the punches. If I am playing World of Warcraft, spend months worth of subscription fee to level a class then it gets nerfed do I demand compensation to have my subscription fee for those months refunded? No of course not. I'm very disappointed in this video, it is like you don't even try to make a good case.

I remember when you couldn't 1-shot people in YuGiOh, and the game would take time and be a DUEL. When cards had only 6 colors/kinds (yellow - Normal monsters, Brown - Effect mons, Dark Purple - Fusion Mons, Blue - Ritual Mons, Green - Spells, Purple - Traps). When the card text was 2, 3, maybe 4 lines tops. When it was played the way it was meant to be played...

13:05 Just, more obvious answers to rhetorical questions: Look for a whole two seconds outside the sheltered construction of modern, consumer market oriented, gaming, and you'll see that long term consistency of play mechanics basically doesn't exist. From chess, to football (either American or International) to cricket, or hell, poker (WTF is worth Texas Hold 'Em anyway?) games rarely remain fixed over time, and any sensible game should anticipate change. Even with a construct as fixed as SSBM, which has been played without patching for what, at least a decade and a half? The player base has so thoroughly excoriated and dissected the game code, that gameplay innovations that shift the core of how one expects to play the game are still hitting the scene. And sure, you can still play the game like you did when it came out with your group of casual friends, but 1) it only takes one friend picking up modern play mechanics to force everyone else to git gud or give up (or otherwise lament the lack of "fun" now that there's an unbeatable force on the field,) and 2) the casual scene rarely drives the market, just like how millions of backyard baseball players will never effect the official MLB rules. That the core ruleset will be affected most strongly by the top of the competitive bracket is par for the course, and this is nothing new. This should be painfully obvious for a game with an intentionally competitive construct like Hearthstone, and if you're really wondering about what Blizzard *should* be allowed to do, maybe go read the EULA for once, since you do legally agree to its terms before you can even use the software.

12:30 [Additional logic fail] You could "trust" that GoldenEye will play the same way forever. Right, up until your N64 fails after the production run ends, and you've got yourself a nice piece of useless plastic and circuitry. A phantom pain that anyone who started to get serious about playing Smash Bros Melee circa 2012 felt, trying to get consistent performance out of eight year old controllers, and prior to the rerelease of the GameCube controllers for the WiiU.

...I find it hard to believe that you play Hearthstone at all after this video. Your editing is fantastic, but to make a video centered around Shudderwock when it's not even as good, misrepresenting the game in so many ways, from buying packs to judging its effects on the meta... Might want to do more fact checking next time
