January 2016 is just about over and Hearthstone is officially in its lull phase, until the next card expansion comes out in a few months. A number of things have also changes for me regarding the game.
- I stopped watching streams – Previously, I only watched 1 streamer(s), though due to time constraints of late, I have dropped watching streams from my everyday computer activities.
- More with less – I’m making my way back to a 5 win arena average (4.94). The 2-3 wins are dropping while, some 7+ runs are becoming more common. Paladin and Shaman runs have become risers, becoming my 2nd and 3rd best classes. I have also been playing slightly less Hearthstone, neglecting Ranked/Tavern Brawls more.
- Less thinking more doing – I’ve been more comfortable finding my own drafting style nowadays, and I have also been thinking less. While thinking is usually helpful in a game like this, I haven’t been overthinking or doubting myself. In a way, I have been a slightly better “reader” of hands, probably just through experience.
- New shift – I’ve started cataloging my arena runs have been cataloged with ArenaMastery, a website, that basically allows me to store my stats from my runs. From the stats provided, I realized that I have been an infinite arena player while going first (75%) and subpar going with the coin (59.6%). With more data, I will find out if this chasm closes up some more, or this is just small sample size.
