For our 8th entry to the Hall of Legends, we have Oli. He is one of our German listeners and we are honored to have him featured here. Below is the story he sent in. Congratulations on your achievement and thank you for listening.
My Name is Oli, I am 23 years old and live in Germany. I enjoy many kinds of strategic games, including Chess, all kinds of RTS(especially Warcraft 3 and Starcraft) and Heroes-of-Might-and-Magic-kind of Games. I also enjoy playing MTG casually, which i do with friends for about 10 years now. All this inevitably got me into Hearthstone. Since closed beta, I occasionally threw in a few matches once in a while, but it really got me after the release for Android tablets. In the season of November,2015, I decided to finally go for that Legend-Cardback, and I got it at 11/24/15!
I decided to go with a facehunter because I love decks which are clearly structured and build around one win condition, and with "dealing damage to your opponent" being THE win condition, I wanted to play this deck. I got stuck around rank 4-3 for a while due to the presence of so many Reno-Jackson-Warlocks (they seem to ALWAYS have Reno at 6 mana), but luckily got through them. From the middle of rank3 to legend, I did not lose more than four matches. Had to really learn that deck (and it is not quite as skill-less as i thought), and your podcast helped me very much with it, thank you!
Your Podcast is one of my favourite Podcasts I listen to, and definitely the best Hearthstone Podcast out there, so please keep up the good work!
