Those who know me know that I am not afraid to be different. I am not afraid to speak my mind. I am able to hold my tongue. I am able to not let the opinion of others affect my own. I can handle someone else having a different opinion than my own. All of that be said, I am disappointed at the lackluster reception for the new expansion that seems to be growing. Okay, repeat after me, “It’s okay to be excited!”. Alright, now say it again, and this time believe it. “It’s okay to be excited!”. After a great reveal day, and a great tournament, full of tremendous play, I see and hear a good deal of “meh”. Come on! REALLY?!?! Have we become such a community of cynicism that we can’t allow ourselves the luxury of becoming a little bit excited about some of the possibilities associated with the card reveals? Do we really have known all 134 cards in the set before we can look at something and say Read More →

Greetings and Well Met!

During the play portion of the show we analyze the Anyfin Can Happen Paladin deck that won the February Fireside Gathering here in Knoxville. Read More →

With the upcoming changes to Hearthstone, there are more than a few people flaming out on the forums (well anywhere they can complain about it really) that the changes will make it easier to get Legend. They think all the good players will be playing Standard, and because all the good players will be in Standard, the scrubs can make it to Legend on the “Wild Side” (see what I did there?). At the risk of drawing the ire of our listeners, I wanted to put my opinion out there for those players who don’t really know what to think about all this. It’s easy to get caught up in other people’s tirades because they tend to be louder, talk more, and generally be more consistent in pushing their opinion on anyone within earshot. When other people bring up valid points, these individuals attack the person bringing up the points rather than making sound arguments about why they feel the way they do. This blog post is not meant to convert anyone to my way of thinking. Nor does this blog post necessarily represent the feelings of my co-hosts. This blog post is being written for players who are caught up in the Read More →
