rodingo writes: This was actually enjoyable to watch.  Sorry Ripper, but I normally just have a hard time watching most of your stuff.  I got a kick how you started to lose and how you realized it towards the end.  Not that I wanted you to lose, it was just amusing how the game slowly turned out that way.  I have to say overall I really love the art direction and effects Blizzard has done with Hearthstone.  There are a lot of nice little touches they have in the game from the voices and sound effects that all we know, down to the 3 dimensional look of the game cards.  Looks very clean and polished.

@flizzer - well its hardly a CCG MMO, its fun game were games typically last no more 10 minutes, it's a casual time waster, if you enjoy strategy (with a lil RNG) you should enjoy HS.

 

 It's light hearted nostalgia fun times.

It's a fun game, I enjoy it. Made some decent progress in beta, won a lot of matches, lost a few.

You certainly are at the whim of the "luck" aspect of a card game, you get some control over your starting hand and some other neat tricks depending on class/deck but what cards you draw and when is just as vital as when you play them and how.

Which means it is very well balanced. I don't play one of the supposed "OP" classes, but I win often and I win often against the supposed "OP" ones.

Whahaha this was funny!

At least I like this AI. Much better then the stupid cheating AI from Magic 2014.

redrip writes:

Thanks for the awesome feedback guys. After getting beat by the AI I played for like 24 hours straight and definitely have improved/learned the cards and play style more.

Really fun game and definitely quick and casual in terms of jumping in quickly and playing. Part 2 is coming next week and in terms of content it's much better! :) 

Best,
