    Hi, this might seem like a weird question but honestly what do you do on this great HS community site? I see like 886 pages of members (roughly 22K users) and on the first few pages it seems like there is a lot of activity going on, but it does not seem to translate directly to a lot of new posts being created when I look at the recent forum threads, articles or deck comments.

    I will start off with myself, I visit OoC daily multiple times:

    • to check on new announcements about HS obviously and participate in the discussion
    • to post in a few dedicated forum threads (reward track progress and such)
    • when I hit legend in a season to post my deck and if anyone is interested discuss about it
    • sometimes I also participate in the fan creation competitions

    What about you? ūüėÖ

    I visit multiple times a day as well. It has become a habit. Primarily here for Hearthstone content, but I don't mind taking in some bits and pieces of different content every now and then. Oftentimes, it's just a quick scan to check if there are new articles (I'm expecting miniset news relatively soon) or interesting forum discussions. More often than not, the comments are more interesting than the articles themselves, so I'm often going back to articles I've already read just to read new comments. I think I'm somewhat of a familiar face around here, but I still only post when I feel like I can contribute to a discussion. I'm not really interested in sharing my opinion most of the time. It's been a while since I build a deck I'm really proud of, but whenever I do I upload the deck here as well.

    I do very little on Out of Cards though I do check on the site daily.

    • Write news articles and guides to help keep the community informed.
    • Add decks to the site that look interesting from notable players and good data.
    • Get rid of bad actors when they show up and become problematic.
    • Develop and maintain community relationships to better the site.
    • Keep the website online and updated.
    • Develop tools for other staff to use to help create better content.

    I was going to post something, but it would just be this.

    I use to drop by now and then. Mostly interested in HS news and the occasional MTGA post. I view myself as a rather passive user (a lot of reading and little posting), but that is because I am not that creative and only feel sharing my thoughts if i have the impression of being able to add something to the discussion (which is usually not the case).

    I visit the site daily (on PC or mobile) to check for Hearthstone news and insights. I enjoy a lot of the article series, and I enjoy the forums, although I wish they were a bit more active. I am a serial up-voter on comments and tend to only add a comment of my own when I feel it would add to the discussion or underscore a point made by someone else.

    Mostly reading news for me, and random comment here and there.

    Usually most of my activity happens during the reveal season when we are getting hyped for the new set/mini-set.

    I do a lot of what was listed, but I also scroll up and down on the main page when my opponent ropes.

    I am a writer for the website, and I work with the team to bring good content to the site. My main specialty here in terms of content is writing the Fan Community Spotlight articles. I'm very involved with the FC side of the community as a whole.

    A lot of reading news, occasionally posting a deck if I make one I think is fun and want to share, and occasionally getting involved in posts like this.  But then I often delete my comment instead of posting because the thought creeps into my head, "No one cares what I think..."

    I might also check in for some deck ideas if I am not sure what I want to play, or just getting frustrated with the deck I am playing currently.  So you know... not much!

    Quick!  Someone give me something clever to write here.

    I usually visit the page several times a day since Hearthstone is my number 1 hobby right now. My main interest lies in HS News articles, the Weekly Card Design Competition and the Card Treasure Hunt. I also check for cool new deck ideas now and then.

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    I usually visit once in the morning and right before I go to sleep to see if anything has happened for some night time reading. Unless work is slow (like right now) I’ll look to see if anything’s happening.


    • I come to see announcements, I’m here more often when it’s card reveal season.
    • Also because of the Iksar Q&A session recaps that OoC makes I’ll check in more often.
    • I use this site as an outlet to post some of my custom Mode & Format design concepts.
    • What I enjoy the most about OoC is that it’s not hyper inflated like other HS based sites

    I visit the site every day, usually while I am playing hearthstone and waiting for my opponent to take their turn. 

    I read every thread and most articles Hearthstone related (I don't play any of the other games regularly). I comment when I feel like I have something valuable to say, and I also take part in the Weekly Card Design Competition (although I haven't been participating much this season).

    I don't follow Esports, and I don't pay much attention to the decks on the site since I don't really enjoy playing decks I don't make myself. Though I occasionally look around for inspiration if I don't know what to play. I also don't post a lot of decks unless I have one that I have played with a lot and can provide insight on, or if I have a cool idea for a theory craft deck during reveal season.

    I'm the same as most guys here, regularly check for hearthstone news, memes and dreams/off meta articles etc and occasionally add my 5 cents to discussions. I'm a lot more active during the card reveal/seasonal/giveaway events (coz they that awesome! ūü§©)

    I find the OoC community very positive and you can see the staff and Flux put a lot of effort into the site

    I usually visit this place once a day. (More if work is slow.) Generally reading the news for HS and LoR and checking the forums to see if there's any threads about those two games that interest me.

    I don't post as much as I used to since most of the discussions I like to partake in are meta-related. I'm a filthy netdecking metaslave so card creations and such don't interest me all that much. And there aren't that many threads about the former over here.

    Sure the forums can be a little slow at times. But then I look at this site's predecessor and see people whine about metas a day after balance changes were released and generally the most dumbest of takes and opinions and am once again reminded that it's better for my mental health to stay here.

    I check the site multiple times a day. I get most excited for Hearthstone related news, especially during card reveal season. I like to participate in discussions about cards and game mechanics, see if other folks have noticed bugs I've encountered, and occasionally get deck ideas.

    I wish there was more deck discussion. I've posted some decks in the past, seeking suggestions, but generally don't get many replies. I try to offer supportive comments on decks other people post. It feels like there are too many decks posted, and not enough interest in discussing them.

    I thoroughly enjoy site-specific content like word searches and scavenger hunts. I can't wait for another snowball fight, or something similar!

    I used to visit the site several times a day to check HS news and forum posts, I posted something sometimes. But nowadays I don't play card games often, so I only visit the site every few days to check for important HS news and updates.

    The pleasure is mine.

    My last standard decks: nothing special right now.

    Honestly we could use a few more players in the [Game] Card Treasure Hunt. It's the most popular thread here for a reason yet we often don't have enough players.




    Try and guess the riddle and if you solve it get the fun of making one of your own! It's fun to scroll through the pages and see how the riddles get solved slowly too. 


    Come and give it a look if you haven't for a while
