Hey man, how you deal with yo problems is yo bidness.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 July 2018 - 04:08 PM)

I did no such thing! I am innocent of the pop tart corruption!

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2018 - 02:57 PM)

You guys made me buy cinnamon roll Pop Tarts today.

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:38 PM)

@D Immortalis Just fill the bag with air first and pop that? XP Oh, and you won't like that I grew up microwaving them more often than actually toasting. ;)

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:37 PM)

@MEDdMI Yeah, the even more artificial flavors like S'more are the ones that usually taste good cold. There exceptions... I think it was Sugar Cookie that needed to be toasted...

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 06:43 PM)

if po tarts dont POP then they become a lie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 05:10 PM)

I typically just went for the traditional flavours... I think mostly Rasberry or Strawberry. I'll have to pick up a box next time I'm out

@  MEDdMI : (15 July 2018 - 04:09 PM)

@Otaku I've tried that too with a few of them. I liked the soda flavored ones they had. Too bad they were limited. :(

@  Otaku : (15 July 2018 - 03:48 PM)

@D Immortalis Most Pop-Tarts I like are better eaten frozen... and the only reason I started doing that is because Pop-Tarts commercials told me to try them that way. XD

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 03:03 PM)

woohoo, just got my tickets to see From Ashes To New and Hollywood Undead on the 26th!

@  wonko the sane? : (15 July 2018 - 06:32 AM)

That's basically what happened to me. I was on that aisle for completely other reasons, caught sight of them in my peripheral, and then... just couldn't stop thinking about them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 02:47 AM)

Hungry for pop tarts now - haven't had those in years

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

anyone that doesnt put theit pop tarts in a toaster is a heretic.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

Yup. And?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 08:29 PM)

Aren't Pop Tarts like, totally junk for you by the definition of the word?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Well, some people are into shopping, anyway.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Taiwanese Costco also has lots of things that shoppers would want!

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2018 - 10:18 AM)

The Taiwan Costco I visited once was nice but I have to question why our guide thought it'd be a good place to bring tourists.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:40 AM)

Lower prices, lower taxes, bigger selection... yeah, I can see that happening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 09:14 AM)

Didn't a Washington Costco make the news a couple years ago for being sheerly flooded with customers from British Columbia?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

That's cool. There's a Sam's Club in Niagara Falls, where I tend to cross the border, but I've never been in. I'm a Costco member, but not Sam's Club; and unfortunately Costco makes sure there aren't any locations in the US too near the Canadian border

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Nope, not the battle damaged version. He got it from his cousin, whose family has a camping ground in... I wanna say new york state, but I'm probably wrong. Just across the border anyway.

@  Nevermore : (13 July 2018 - 06:36 PM)

Sam's Club exclusive was the battle damaged version, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 July 2018 - 06:34 PM)

He's got friends on the other side.

@  TM2-Megatron : (13 July 2018 - 06:08 PM)

where'd your nephew get a US retailer exclusive

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:39 PM)

Alright, I managed to identify him. The 2007 voyager class that was apparently exclusive to sam's club.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:20 PM)

Well, that was a nice surprise. Me nephew (the 10 year old.) just gave me an optimus prime that's minorly older than he is.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Nah, even better. He'll be a memory of the mission briefing. Just a voice over. Four different figures in the toyline, but not actually in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (13 July 2018 - 10:06 AM)

I am 110% sure that Optimus will show up, even as a transmission or something. At least maybe we can get a cybertronian form this time.

@  Pennpenn : (13 July 2018 - 09:55 AM)

At least one Optimus sodding Prime.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 06:57 AM)

Same way as always: completely unrelated figures and models that weren't even in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (12 July 2018 - 11:47 PM)

I think that's a given, though, given the small number of transformers in Bee Movie, I wonder how they'll fill the toyline

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 July 2018 - 02:07 PM)

Yeah. I'm hoping with the new film, we might get something closer to the deluxe range

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 July 2018 - 01:20 PM)

Isn't the Masterpiece the only recent VW G1-looking Bee?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:02 AM)

Especially when they are questioned directly and respond by dodging the question.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:01 AM)

Watching hypocrites parade their high ground is equally amusing and cringeworthy.

My firend hooked me up to this the other day so i downloaded it for ipad. It's a simple enough card game, easy to get into but a long time to try and master. Mechanics are fun and the games are short enough. Best part is ipad/PC/mac users can all challenge each other regardless what they're on, which gives it a larger userbase. Fairly trollfree too, I don't get many people logging out when they're losing.

If anyone wants a game let me know and I'll put my sign in for it here.

I play fairly regularly, though having been in the game since prior to Open Beta in December, the game is starting to stale a bit. The current Meta game is very boring. It's either Control or what I like to call "To The Face" (Murlocs or general aggression aka "Zoo"). The saddest part about it is even without looking at any guides, you'll eventually learn the entire deck list and can make judgements on what deck is what based on the opening turn.

 

There are a few bright spots though. Control Warrior when played properly is always fun to watch even when you're on the receiving end, Miracle Rogue Decks are Glass Cannons in the extreme (I always respect those running them), Mages have some Spellpower Secret Decks running around, and Hunters have finally answered the calls of stopping abusing Unleash the Hounds with some very potent mid-range Beast decks that are a bit of a nightmare if you can't deal with it.

 

But those are bright patches in an otherwise stale meta game. Curse of Naxxramas can't be released soon enough - I'm hoping it'll help break the log jam of the Aggressive Meta and start seriously punishing those that just brainlessly hit the face.

 

 

I tend to run Gimmick decks. I have a Knight themed Paladin Deck "Army of the Light". A Elemental themed Shaman deck "Fury of the Elements". A Treant/Ancient themed Druid Deck "Nature's Wrath". A Enrage Warrior Deck "No Pain No Gain". And my personal favorite - "Your Deck Is My Deck" Priest Deck.

 

That deck tends to lead to insanity like this:

Cool. I've only been playing a week (got released on ipad) but I'm running a defensive mage deck that's taunt heavy with a lot of combo hitters and I've just built a druid deck that's based around getting mana buffs and using it to combo out a ton of hitters, though I need to run more charge minions in there as they're getting summoned then slapped in the face a lot.

Had a weird Arena match that's been bugging me.

 

Me (Shaman) vs a Paladin

 

The set up:

 

He has a Stormwind Champion protected by a Divine Shield and boosted by a Kings to a 10/10 and a 2/2 Recruit. Plus a Light's Justice with one charge. He has 17 Health.

 

I have a Fire Elemental and a Spellpower Totem. In my hand are: Bloodlust, Earth Elemental, Lightning Bolt, Youthful Brewmaster, Earthen Ring Farseer, and Amani Beserker. I had 19 Health.

 

My plan was to use the Earth Elemental and Earthen Ring Farseer to heal myself up. Basically buy myself a turn with the Fire Elemental, Totem, and the Farseer then hit him with a Bloodlust.

 

I accidentally played Bloodlust instead of Earth Elemental. So, suddenly bequeathed with Rage Overwhelming I slammed into his face with my Totem, Fire Elemental, and a Lightning Bolt for 16 damage taking him down to 1. With the rest of my mana I popped out a totem - the 1/1.

 

His turn...he uses the Champion to knock over my Fire Elemental and then the recruit to knock out the 1/1 (O_o). He then plays Venture Co. Mercenary.

 

At this point, I figure the game's lost because I just straight up goofed. I notice he almost lets his turn run out before Ending Turn, likely believing that I had some kind of finisher waiting.

 

On my turn, I play Earth Elemental and Farseer, and hope for the best. I still have Brewmaster and Amani in hand, plus I drew into a Faerie Dragon, so I still had options - it's just he had the ammunition to knock over everything damage dealing on my board, but at 22 Health, I just had to draw into some kind of damage.

 

Cursing myself for the fool, his turn sees him...do absolutely nothing. He didn't AFK. He was looking around the board. He simply chose to do nothing. Letting the timer end his turn. I then hit him with the Farseer and won the game.

 

It just...I can see being dazed by suddenly having 16 damage ripped out of you - but he had the options on the field to eliminate my damage potential while still keeping his 10 and 8 attack minions alive to threaten me the very next turn.

 

In a ladder game, I could totally see that, but this was Arena. You spend coin to run it, so why wouldn't you play out till the bitter end? In the same vein that I had to draw into damage, all he had to do was draw into healing.

I recently got into this, I don't know my tag at the moment (I'll get it when i get home from work) but had the most hilarious exchange earlier in casual. I'm not especially good, and ran into another Priest running a deck I'm familiar with (it was a version of what I first started playing Priest with) And he was holding control well, we were countering each other fantastically, but he had a solid upper hand.

 

He's at 8, I'm at 11, I don't have taunters, and he has nearly a full field of smaller minions to ping me with. I'm dead, I know I'm dead. I don't have any plays. He has cleric on the field though, and heals a minion to draw, he's down to one, Turn ends, I'm at I think 5? He's at 8 and I've got like 4 worth of minions on the field.

 

I heal one of my minions, his cleric goes off, draws his last card. I heal another, again, -1 life. He's at 7. I shore up defense wise and end. He draws, -2, he's at 5.

 

He has me, he has to know he has me, but I've got just enough on the field, apparently, to worry him and I proceed to watch the greatest misplay I've ever seen. With cleric on the field, and I think 5 or 6 damaged minions, and no remaining deck, he plays Holy Nova. 

 

And I watch as he draws card after card for damage, until he ends up at -60 life. And then he quit and I was disconnected. Yeah.

So I created a joke deck based off a deck I myself had gone up against and found really unique.

 

Oh. Em. Gee.

 

sicdeck_zps01def529.jpg

 

This deck is...insanity. I was initially just playing casual with it, but I'm sorely tempted to start laddering with this thing.

For reference, a Windfury Harpy with a Blessing of Kings equates SIXTEEN damage a turn.

Blizzard has revealed all 30 cards of the Curse of Naxxramas Adventure Pack - being released tomorrow and a weekly release of a wing each wing for four weeks afterward.

 

Even though many of these cards are a "Hurry Up and Wait" type of deal...the game is going to dramatically change.

So I've done everything in the first wing except beat Heroic mode, which frankly I don't care enough about card backs to do. Rust, you play Priest, thoughts of using Maexxna for control decks?

Let me change your mind.

 

But seriously, Maexxna I don't see really working Control side, because she's a gigantic target and much like Emperor Cobra just too slow to really be effective. That said, if an opponent drops her...steal her with a Cabal Shadow Priest.

 

 

As for Heroic Mode, I enjoy the challenge...well, except for Heroic Maexxna, who is giving me conniptions. The issue I'm having is keeping my head above water, health wise, and about the time I get a grip on her wave of small creatures, then the big boys start dropping.

Murlocs are a lot of fun.

 

And nigh impossible to stop if you've flooded the board early and drop the one that boosts the health of all Murlocs by +3 on Turn 3. It's basically a "I Win" card, because there's no way to stop them at that point.

 

Also once you obtain a copy of every Murloc card, you unlock their Legendary Ol' Murk Eye.
