Well, I am rooting for him so that's good (and would he lose his handlock has not many chances vs this pal). But I think RunAndGood would have bitter taste after this match would he lose

I played probably 40 games today and did not see a single hunter.

Also my Druid deck is getting far more wins than usual.

I'm finding that aggro warrior has been fantastic to climb with early season. It's gone from rank 20 to rank 13 so far without a loss, with no game taking more than 8 turns. I'll see how far up I can get before it starts running into decks that can beat it!

This is bad. I'm being sucked in.

I haven't played WoW in over 5 years, but just reading all the names, spells, actions etc. gives me such a kick. Especially that so many of them do in cards exactly what I would imagine their in-game mechanic would've translated to.

I just got sucked in because it's cards with catch phrases.

I know, right?  The way many of the legendaries work is precisely what you'd expect for those characters.  Even some of the non-legendaries (Ancient of War, Ancient of Lore, hunter traps) are exactly what you'd have in game.

Wow works by sucking not only money but especially your social and family life. At least that is all I ever saw and thus why I never did it.

Wow works by sucking not only money but especially your social and family life. At least that is all I ever saw and thus why I never did it.

To be fair, there are a significant number of people for whom WOW was their first chance at having a social life.

For instance:  I'll be re-subbing to WOW next week, though not for the expansion; I don't plan to buy it.  I'll be re-subbing because the guild leader of my first real raiding guild--someone who I've been in contact with on FB for nearly ten years--died a few weeks ago.  The old guild had a huge conversation on FB, and we're having a memorial get-together next week in Stormwind.  Shannon had her social life inside WOW for many years; it was her third space, and she formed many friendships there--as did I, or I wouldn't be planning to attend a virtual funeral.

You're both right, I think.

As far as money goes, well, it's a sink only in that it's a monthly subscription. I guess now they have other ways to spend, but that's based largely on the successes of other FTP games. Hell, look at Hearthstone as a perfect example.

As far as family or social lives go... that's really tough. Like Kirian says, there's a significant person to him that's passed, that he knew through WoW. And while that's not the only social outlet that he knew Shannon through,.it was perhaps the primary, and almost certainly the first.

I personally dated a woman that I met through WoW for four years. Wonderful person. While things didn't work out between us, I think we're both quite happy to have crossed paths - and that never would've happened without WoW.

It's both a social leach, and a social outlet. For many, many people, the game WAS Facebook, or Myspace, or whatever. The connections that were made there were often completely virtual, but they were with real people nevertheless.

Whether through raiding, questing, RP'ing, PVP'ing, or whatever else tickled your fancy, WoW offered you a way to interact with others, to get to know others, and to care about others - in ways that yes, perhaps you could get from "real life", but were real themselves, and were certainly with "real people" all over the world.

PPS is right. WoW is a money and time suck. If you're a family man or woman with a job and/or kids, it can be quite damaging in excess (although to be fair, so can many, many other things - that's a topic for another thread).

But for many the connections they make through WoW are just as valuable and meaningful as any they could make "irl". I consider many people I've met here on f.ds as "real friends", even if I've never met them personally. The same principal applies to WoW, or any other social outlet.

Gaming platform aside, WoW is at it's core, a social outlet. It's one thing I think Hearthstone could benefit from - a way to connect. Talk in-game. Talk out-of-game. A way to be social.

^ I must admit, playing Hearthstone with IRL friends makes it so much more fun. In theory, an in-game chat can bring out that extra lightheartedness from strangers. In practice, I prefer not having to deal with the bad manners.

I would hope that a "permanently-silence-this player" button is immediately available with the release of any ingame chatting.

What do you mean by permanent?  It won't work if you queue up against the same person, though I'm not sure that's ever happened to me.  It does work for the rest of the game (unless they turn into Lord Jaraxxus, EREDAR LORD OF THE BURNING LEGION).

Your opponent cannot squelch you, and there is no cooldown between your emotes.

I just had a horrible Druid deck on Arena. I had a couple of good cards (Illidan, Force of Nature and one Swipe), but my curve was awful and I also had to pick stuff like Coldlight Oracles when there was nothing better available. Ended up losing games against pretty bad players, somehow managed to win 2 games too, and got a pack and 40 gold. Yay. Then I opened the pack:
