Do people really hate hunters this bad ?

Hunters are boring and repetitious to play against. Almost no variety to cards in any of my opponents decks, just a formulaic clone of every other hunter deck out there.


Welcome to this thing called a 'meta game'. Also, theres maybe 200 cards in the game? Things will get formulaic.

`We have to be honest tho, mirror Hunter is probably THE best matches to behold, it's so marvelous!

I am not saying there isn't the hunter out there that is playing with a different deck, but 9/10 I can assume that it's going to be the exact same beasts. I don't blame the players who choose to play a hunter, I think it is fun to play as a hunter from time to time myself.

The problem doesn't come down solely to the game only having 400+ cards either (although as more come out it will definitely help), the additional problem for hunters is the beast type minion restriction for some of their class cards almost forces them into the repeated use of the same cards if they want to have a viable deck.

When you play against most other classes at least there is some question of what will be included in it. Other than warlocks having powers restricted to demons I can't think of any other class that does have the same limitation as hunters.

Honestly I'm not sure what meta game means in relation to hearthstone. It seems like everyone has a different definition of it as it applies to hearthstone, whether it is simply referring to current trends, or referring to deck building strategies for tournaments. Perhaps it's both, but podcasters seem to differ on their usage.

Anyway, my original post was actually trying very poorly to communicate an alternative to "people hate hunters." I wouldn't quit a match against them but I do find it tedious when I have a series of hunter matches in a row.

Hunters are literal garbage unless you run a specific set up which people think is broken. He's otherwise completely unplayable.
