    Lightbulb The Forced Stubbornness Experiment

    This is not really a strategy article or query but no other sub-forum seemed like a better place for this thread.

    When I play quick match I switch heroes and decks all the time. I seem to never get a real feeling for or deeper understanding of any of the heroes and my decks. Sure, I have some favorite heroes but when I lose a couple of games with them I tend to move on to another instead of staying and trying to focus. This is a problem that I believe is limiting my playing and deckbuilding skills. Time to solve this the masochistic way!

    My plan is to randomly decide one hero and stick with that hero in quick match until I get an unbroken 5 win streak. After that I will randomize another one and repeat. I plan on doing this until Shattered Fates goes live and I will update you on my progress in this thread. After I have succeeded with a hero I will post the final deck and some statistics and maybe anecdotes in this thread.

    If anyone else feel that this is a fun idea and want to try as well; feel free to hijack this thread and share!

    So lets pull out a D20 and roll the first hero! 6.. That should be one of the human mages, right? Let's see.. Yes, it's Eladwen. Haha, this will looked rigged now. On the other hand, if I don't report my streak very soon you will all know exactly how bad I am at this game.

    Nice idea, but I think you'll get old before you can win 5 straight games with some of the weakest heroes

    Cool idea for a tourney. Roll an online D20 and play that hero vs opponent who did the same

    Hopefully I won't get old before Shattered Fates is live but I see what you mean and agree.

    Meltdown is someway like that. You only have a little wider choice of heroes.

    A small in progress-update: In 50+ games I have not been close to a 5 game win streak but I just had my first 5 game lose streak. Winning consistently with Eladwen is harder than I remembered. Back to the coal mine..

    What's your rating? Sub 270 should be cake to get a 5 win streak with elad! Unless the rumors are true....and you do indeed suck

    Or his deck isn't good.
    I'm 280 rating and I just had a 5 wins streak, it's absolutely doable because it's a very good hero, with a great pool of cards.
    For exemple I use 3x Armored Sandworm that is almost autowin against rogues (it counter Anklebraker), but without it it's not easy to deal with Lance and Serena. Deckbuilding is as important as the hero and, obviously, player's skill.

    So my suggestion for Stefan K is to spend some more time in tuning the deck
