Hi folks,

first, i am no native speaker so excuse my speeling etc.

I made a Combo Dragon Priest, like here, only changed the 4/8 Taunt Dragon with Ysera cos i dont have the taunt, and not enough dust to craft it.

First time ever i reached with this deck Rank 10. And i am a little proud of it. BUT, now i only face 3 Decks. The Priest with 2 dmg refresh heropower, jade druid and the rouge with no 2 mana +1+1 combo... and i loose 4 of 5 games. Is it my deck thats not good against it or as the thread topic says i am just dull/stupid. Its frustrating if you see your opponents does their combo and your helpless about it

And no i dont want to spend real money for more cards. Actually i have 65 gold and 230 Dust. Hopefully you understand my problen. And in best case you can help me 

 

Greetings

Parmenion

The 3 decks you mention are the strongest decks at the moment. (you may add Control Priest + ZooWarlock / TokenDruid which are strong too.)

Combo Dragon Priest is weaker then the decks mentioned above. It is "normal" that you loose (way) more games to them than you win.

To be honest, if both players have the same skill-level, I don't see much chances of Combo Dragon Priest to get to rank legend (or even rank 5). (I can't remember playing against a Combo Dragon Priest, which seems to prove my point)

I have never played this deck myself, that's why I can't give you much advise how to play it.

Two replays could be helpful, maybe there are some missplays that can be improved and that way get a few more wins against these decks.

 

Unfortunatly Hearthstone has become incredible expensive. To craft a Tier 1 deck you need around twice, more like thrice, the dust you needed last year.

Firstly,congrats on R10,this means you have put some serious time and effort to reach there!Fortunately you are piloting a Tier 1 deck (at least with current meta dynamics),unfortunately the same deck is very slow and thus weak against more aggro or even tempo decks as the ones you mentioned above.It is not about bad card draw,RNG or astral alignment,they just have better ways to stand against you in early game and by the time you will start gaining ground they are able to wipe you out.

If you share your deck here and maybe some replays ,we could possibly find what and if there is something wrong.

Hey there,

thanks for answering. I am still laughing.

Cos u both said you need replays i started recording my games and i only made one card change now i am  nearly rank 8 after 19 games with a winrate of  nearly 80% so no replays to show cos 2 of the losses were due to a huge misplay. and the third/forth loss was cos i missread the deck of my opponent.

But my Deck is now the following:

Inner Fire x2
Northshire Cleric x2
Power Word: Shield x2
Divine Spirit x2
Netherspite Historian x2
Radiant Elemental x2
Shadow Visons x2
Schadow Word: Pain x2
Kabal Talonpriest x2
Shadow Word: Death x2
Priest of the Feast x2
Twilight Drake
Drakonid Operative x2
Bone Drake x 2
Dragonfire Potion x2
Ysera
 

Only change to the deck i have used when i posted first was 1 more Twilight Drake and i changed it for the 2nd Divine Spirit

 

ok now i have a replay where i realy do not know how i could have won this:

if i find more i will add them

Well, first of all, WedgeAntilles is right, those are the top-dogs right now, you need RNG on your side in addition to making almost-perfect plays in general.

Picking Midnight Drake over Twilight Drake is not a great idea, latter gives you better board against any possible board clear. Attacking the Mirror Entity with Netherspite Historian was wrong, as you went on to Shadow Word: Pain it.

Other than that, as your opponent completed the quest on Turn 9, there is nothing you could do.

You'll see fully decked out Highlander Priest, Quest Mage...etc decks at rank 20 too.  Honestly I rarely see a deck that isn't tier 1 and I'm not even in single digits rank-wise.

Well, that's (and since quests came out) why I stopped bothering playing ranked beyond rank 20-15, To much grind vs the same dull decks over and over. No fun and not worth the possible rewards I might get and definitely not worth my time :D

hey there,

even posts geting little off topic, i want to give you a update.

After the adjustment i told earlier, i have reached rank 7 now. And yes there games that i loose without a chance and yes i win games and my opponent stands no chance. But i have obtained a winrate round about 60% and i am proud of it. Cos as i mentioned before my best rank ever before was 11 oder 12 so i have reached a good ranke i think. And i have only started playing HS again 2 weeks ago after i played a few games shortly after frozen throne realase, last time i played more was in March. 

So thanks for the post related answers, and the rest.. play what you like to play nobody forces you to play something you dont like.

      I've been trying my hardest to climb in Ranked. I started the season at Gold 2, and have now fallen to Gold 4 from losing streaks. How half my games go these days. 1. I call Support 2. I play nearly perfectly 3. We lose, with me having DOUBLE the healing of the enemy healer, sometimes doubling an enemy double support as a solo support (not an exaggeration), and no deaths, with healing percent around 50%. And yet my teammates are comical. Once we lose a fight, they do things like hang around alone against the entire enemy team, push alone, blame teammates, and generally be useless. Nor do I cause the frustration, I'm nearly always polite and helpful (encouraging teammates, making strats, etc.). Yet I keep losing. Do I need to do TRIPLE the enemy healer to win, or am I just cursed? Perhaps someone from IcyVeins could spectate a match of mine and tell me what, if anything, is wrong with my play. I know that's a big favour, but I'd appreciate it. I can upload replays if someone tells me how.

      Hey guys, i need an advice about enjoying the game. I started the game in almost plat 5, and now I'm 400 points in gold 3. And I wasn't even insta picking assassins, but I still had people feeding and afking. As you can guess, this really tilted me and kill my mood for playing ranked. I haven't been plat league since last year. Can someone give me any advice?

      Servus, wir sind momentan auf der suche nach 3 Leuten für ein ranked Team.
      Blackknight#2405(Support/Flex), Woddy#22984(Flex).
      Wir haben selber erst diesen Monat wieder angefangen, nach einer längeren Pause. Ihr müsst nicht die besten Spieler sein, nur das Grundverständnis vom Spiel sollte schon da sein.(Wir sind beide noch unranked)
      Kritik sollte gut aufgenommen werden und als besserungs Vorschlag angesehen werden, natürlich nehmen wir Kritik auch gerne entgegen, also wenn ihr meint wir machen irgendwas falsch oder könnten was besser machen sagt es uns ! :)
      Ihr solltet mindestens Lvl 150 sein und vom Alter 16+
      Wir hoffen das wir ein gutes Team zusammen kriegen und so gemeinsam aufsteigen können. Falls ihr Interesse habt addet uns einfach und schreibt uns an. Dann können wir ein Paar Runden machen und schauen wie wir so miteinander auskommen.
      Danke für das lesen und einen schonen Tag noch ;)

      The place where I simply cannot climb in Ranked. I've constantly been taking steps to improve myself, trying to improve in areas such as map awareness, restricting myself to first meta heroes then to meta supports in Ranked, and I'm constantly cheerful and helpful, encouraging a flagging team and talking down those who are on tilt (or just trolling). And yet my rank cannot improve. I calibrated at Gold 3, then quickly fell to Gold 5. From there I've been working hard (to the extent of only playing when I'm in a good mood, to ensure I never play my worst), but I simply cannot climb. For every match with a cooperative team, there's a match with a troll or flamer who drags the game down. I know I'm the consistent factor and the enemy team is just as likely to have muppets as my team is, but then why are all my improvements having no effect? Advice, or even coaching to detect underlying flaws in my playstyle, would be much appreciated. If there is a method to share my Replays, tell me and I'll post some of my games, both good and bad, here for perusal. Thank you.
