I don't have nice things to say about loot boxes. They basically just admitted that rarity is arbitrary, and the you will eventually get everything--it's just a matter of how much money you spend.

That's why I was never a fan of Heroes of the Storm over Dota--at least skins were largely cosmetic and that the entirety of the core gameplay was provided to you. But for games like Hearthstone, there are cards that will just about end a match the moment you draw them, and the only thing preventing you from getting the same card was simply how big your wallet is. At least with physical card games, only a certain amount of cards are produced before they're discontinued. But with digital items, they can always be replicated ad infinitum.

That was about time! I opened about 80 card packs for the latest hs expansion and didn't get a single legendary. Gladly i didn't spend one cent on that game...
