Combo Priest Simulator: Train Your APM Skills

Recommended Posts

4X1tXFx.png

The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!

Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:

Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.

Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.

In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!

Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!

Actually I think it's quite funny to watch him try the combo and failing *g*

I am not a fan of these OTK, but this is one is interesting.

You actually have to think what you are doing and there is a high chance to fuck it up.

And by the way: How the fuck do you come up with something like that??? Awesome 🙂

Lots of time to play the game, good knowledge of the game and card interactions and a desire to think out of the box and try out new things. Pro streamers tend to have the two former due to their job and do the latter to keep their fans interested.

Still, it's an accomplishment in genial madness and beats Majordomo-Deathwing hands down in OTK insanity.

Is it bad though, or is it just below average win rate because people mess it up so much? Whilst I’ve admittedly not been playing serious decks yet, in the majority of games I’ve faced against it they’ve had the chance to OTK but in the majority of those they’ve failed.
