Help With Ranked!

Recommended Posts

Ok so here's the deal: I've spent hundreds of dollars on hearthstone. I thought that if I had better cards, I'd be able to build better decks and climb to legend status in the ranked game mode. I look on icy veins and hearthpwn for decks, and copy them to a tee. I use the ones that say they can make it to legend. I've been playing A LOT, even with the "super" decks, but I still can't win. I can't make it past rank 18.

 

I heard that 18 was the hardest to pass, but I'm losing against people who I'm sure haven't spent as much money or time as me. It doesn't seem like the decks really matters. I realize it is a game of luck, but (as I'm sure you know) my decks are good for most situations.

 

Am I doing something wrong? I can detail my play style or add you on hearthstone or something. I desperately need help. 

 

A guide for what strategies to use, an actual good deck list, or anything else that you think may help would be greatly appreciated!

 

By the way, I play as druid mostly (my favorite) but I also like mage, then hunter, then warrior.

Then you are definitely doing something wrong, if you can't go past Rank 18. I've spent only 45 dollars on hearthstone for naxxramas and blackrock mountain and never bought a single pack with money. I made it to Rank 13 with Ramp Druid. Add me on hearthstone shadowdragon#12368 and I'll see if I can help. You should watch pros play the decks that you are playing on youtube. In general, each of the minions in the druid deck should take out at least 2 of the opponent's minions when trading before u let it die. Do this as much as possible and u won't lose board control unless ur opponent gets good removal. I run the legendary ramp deck here at icy veins. I can't tell u everything here, so you should friend me and play me. What part of the world are u in cuz if u live in like China then I will never get to play u because we will be 12 hours apart.

     It appears that you lack game knowledge, having many good cards and copying decks wont make you learn the game, if you do not know the basics. By basics i mean efficient trades, when to trade, when not to trade, game plan, playing to win, playing not to lose, when to gamble, playing around certain cards like aoes or single target removals etc.  You could spend thousands on the game, have all the cards, but if you don`t know the principles of the game, it`s pointless. Most people learn them by watching streams or reading articles about the game. You should have a look at these https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/mechanics-guideand https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/why-am-i-losing-in-hearthstone

As other threads have discussed, how you play is ultimately more important than the cards available to you. Even decks comprised entirely of beginner cards can get to the mid-to-early-teens in Ranked Mode. Icy Veins has some helpful beginner guides you could read (as do many other sites). After that it's a matter of practicing and getting better. You need to be very familiar and comfortable with your own deck, but you also need to be familiar with your opponents decks in order to anticipate their moves (something I still need to improve on myself). You must really enjoy the game to have spent so much money on it, so keep trying and have fun!

      Hey all,
       
      Not new to hearthstone but haven't been playing constantly and just jumping back in towards the end of July.  I am not sure if there's a better name or configuration for this yet but I've had some good luck with it so far.  If nothing else it's just really fun to play for me.  
      This deck has no duplicates to take advantage of Zephyrs the Great and Sir. Finley of the Sand.
       
      Never posted a deck before so not sure if this is how of the place but feel free to give me constructive feedback.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?
