They don't force you, it's random. That's the fun of Arena, lol.

Also, you don't have to lvl anything to be good in Arena, you get cards you don't own.
The point about going Arena is to 1) get resources (gold and decks) so you can build better custom decks for ranked and 2) show mastery of the game in general. RNG obviously plays in with Arena in terms of what type of deck you're able to make, but it really shows whom is good too based on how well they use decks they haven't had time to get very comfortable with.
In ranked for example I'm super comfortable with my mage deck. I know every card in it and I have pretty much exactly what I want.
Yeah, I sort of lost interest in the game for the time being.

So the game officially went live, no longer in Beta. But even after installing the latest updates I'm still getting this weird bug with most of the text in the game. Like the shading/shadows underneath are all broken up and fragmented. I've tried looking online, but don't see any way to fix it.
I play it too .
njt#1868 feel free to add me .
I opened 15 packs hoping for a Tirion Fordring but couldn't get it
lol, you'd be super lucky to get a specific legendary in only 15 packs xD Did you get any legendaries at all?
Why Fordring anyway? He's good by all means but..
Just trying to complete build for my Paladin card, really
Yup, I got one Cenarius.
I got the dream dragon a while back. I don't open many packs though, just the ones I win after arena runs ^^
Zatono#1425 if anyone wants to play.
I didn't realize we had a thread for this
Can someone explain to me where people are getting all of these amazing cards? Is it just random drops from opening packs. I'm talking about aside from the Naxxramas expansion.
Also, same with the pattern for back of the cards?
Yup, opening packs. Pretty slow process unless you buy... That's the whole point of it as people are too impatient and just spend money on the free game. I bought a big pack way back, like 20 packs or something, and I don't have anywhere near the cards I want, and I've opened quite some packs from Arena wins. You can craft specific cards too, but takes time to gather materials, unless you disenchant legendary cards.
You play during a season for the card backs. 1 month = 1 season. Not sure if it's just "play during season" or "play x games", but I've never failed to get the backs and I don't play a lot.
Yeah I figured it was for seasons, and they seem super short compared to other games.
I'm trying to get back to it, unlocking all of the basic cards in all classes, which is mostly done. I have a few legendaries, but I'm not like good enough to justify spending real money, and grinding gold is so annoying...lol
just started playing must say am dissapointed you cant play as illidan but locks are great as well
