Get rid of kill X or more creatures objectives.

The problem of this objective has been discussed several times on the forums. It's absolutely infuriating to loose an objective and a good rank because you're unlucky enough to face a creatureless deck.

Now, we theorically have the option of killing our own creatures ... But whats the point? It's totally counter intuitive and a good part of our removal spells are now only able to destroy oponents creatures anyway(which is Also pretty annoying when objectives force you to delay the end of the game).

Objectives that depend on oponents build should just be gotten rid of.

    Agreed! 

    Sacrifice x of your own makes even more sense than relying on your opponents build or having to resort to giving greg creatures

    There is a large-enough sub-theme of providing an advantage for destroying your own creatures, it would be fine to ask players to build for it once in a while, or at least allow it to happen in the existing Destroy objective since it is already worded like it should count self-sacrifice.

    You can kill your own creatures for this objective, though. 

    EDIT: I mean, my opp wasn’t getting enough mana to play anything, so I Frogged my own critter (and then Frogged the Frog), and hit the objective.

    A while ago players asked for the Destroyer objective ('Kill X or more creatures during a single fight') to count when you kill your OWN creatures as well as Greg's creatures, and the devs concurred [citation needed, I can't find the relevant forum threads about this atm] and changed some levels so that this was so.

    They have, unfortunately been inconsistent in changing which levels you are allowed to kill your own creatures on:

    But you'll be glad to hear that the Hunter X Bonder top node is a level which you can kill your own creatures on... I've been doing it myself this very weekend (I've been Concocting Hangarback Walkers into play which is a very satisfying thing to do :) )


    Might I suggest that the actual ingame text for the Destroyer objective be changed from 
    Kill 3 or more creatures during a single fight.
    to
    Kill 3 or more creatures during a single fight (this can include your own creatures!)
    That way we players always know we can kill our own creatures, and also the devs will no longer have to check their notes to see if the level is 'working as intended'.


    Additionally, I'd like to add here that the Sacrifice objective ('Lose X or more creatures during a single fight') is generally unpopular, and I for one would be happy to see it removed from the game or at least mothballed from this point onwards.

    True, the sacrifice objective was about as painfull as the kill enemy only, though you could build for it.

    the way it is in HxB is best...
