How is HS any more RNG orientated than Infinity Wars?
I'm a pretty big deal around here.

Feel privileged.

I've heard that HS top tier games are won and lost more often on draws then skill. That might be why

I think they got rid of it's function because too many "pros" complained, but there used to be a legendary card in HS that was 50/50 chance to draw a card each turn and could be played on turn 2. Such skill.

Remember when that Solforge streamer analysed all these games and funnily enough rated Solforge the highest and Infinity Wars the lowest (Or one of the lowest I cant remember). Anyway in conclusion... LOL ::)

Not much cards in IW have random outcome after you use them. At least 40%-50% cards from the new set in HS have very random effects, and many of them could be a real game changer. HS had cards like that before but after the GvG (the new set) there are much more of them.

HS's new expansion should be titled "RNGstone: RNG vs You"

When I last played IW there was no RNG besides card draws, Hearthstone had several RNG effects pre-GvsG, most of GvsG's cards are RNG based, thus Hearthstone truly became RNGstone. :/

It truly is a shame Blizzard threw away HS's credibility as a competitive dCCG.

Also, IW 49% to RNGstone's 41%

Well, IW does have some rng, mostly in the exiles faction. But yeah, its nowhere near the amount of RNG involved in Hearthstone, especially after Goblins v Gnomes. And the command zone and trading post can be very helpful in making you less dependent on luck of the draw by giving you a few guaranteed cards and letting you put unused resources to use.

I have not played the new Hearthstone expansion - I stopped right after Nax was released and I hit Legendary. I can say that a lot of games of Hearthstone seemed extremely coin flippy to me, even when my opponent played sub optimally he could still just randomly win.

For the most part I feel that IW RNG is much less prevalent in determining the outcome of a match (outside of turn one wealthy nobles in mirror matches). In fact, with a properly built IW deck in a high level match, I would compare the board and game interactions to Chess more than anything else.

A lot of RNG from Hearthstone kinda comes from how all the decks sort of play themselves. There is almost always a "best move" and so when this happens and the decks are the same in how strong they are, it really just comes down to who drew the right cards or had the right effects happen to the right stuff.
