Nice. I hope that MMORPG gets wise and filters out accounts made from the same IP in the contest they have for this game... cause many people are trying to profit by selling beta accounts to this game.

 

If these are truly unique accounts, good going MMORPG, you are bringing some fresh blood into the scene.

Hey Ripper much better :-). 

Although I was surprized you didn't take priest of northshire (one that allows you to draw a card each time a minion is healed).  That allows you to draw a lot of cards given that you can heal with your class ability. 

In general the game is very much about taking things at 2 for 1. Because if turn 10 comes around and you have all the mana in the world and you have no cards - you are pretty much stuck. On the other hand if turn 10 comes around and you have hand full of options you can overwhelm any late game bombs he may have. 

@Sephastus - I totally agree. This I looked through the posts in the contest about 1/2 of all them are made with brand new accounts. They should give priority to people who have been members here for a while and totally eject accounts from same IP.

Gravarg writes: The only problem I've had is that the game relies heavily on how Blizzard changes things for balance sake.  A few months ago, Priest was played probably by 2-3 players lol.  Today, about 50-60% of players play Priest, because they got majorly buffed last patch.  They have the most removal cards, and one of the most powerful cards in the game, Mind Control.  Not only does priest get their own big monsters, they can steal yours from you.

@GlacianNex ahh thanks friend, getting better slowly. After playing through all the classes I have to say hands down I LOVE THE SHAMAN! So much fun to play, but you are right the 2 for 1s are better in the end. 

Best,

RipX

@redrip - my biggest problem with Shaman is lack of predictability on totems. You might get exactly what you need or you might get something useless. While same argument can be made for drawing right cards - thing is with cards I can control the ratio and control the probability of getting a minion vs a spell with totem I have no control.

 

@Gravarg - I really think that mind control is overblown in popularity. It is good only because people like to use BFM (big fucking minions) late game. I run a single mind control in my deck right now and even considering taking that one out because people are learning to work around that (which again they should). 

Main reason priest is so good right now is because all of their cards have absolutely amazing synergy. There are a lot of 1 - 2 card combos that are absolutely insane. Priest is the only class where you can have a 7/7 and draw a card whenever you heal a minion on turn 3. Yes it was an amazing hand but for classes that don't have removal it is a problem (mage, shaman, druid, hunter) because they have to burn through 2 - 3 card to kill it and at that point they are too far behind in card count to catch up and priest will just slowly drain their hand of any cards by dropping things on the field and beat them down with a bunch of mid level minions.

Talemire writes: I can see people turning their wallet upside down for this game. Wonder if this is going to have too large of a negative impact on those who don't want to pay anything. Lol play a dude who pulls all elite cards out and you know the debit card came out. Thu Oct 31 2013 9:19PM Report
GlacianNex writes:

I think it will com down to what cards they pick to be paid for vs free. So far I think the balance is pretty good. Most of the really good combos are done with class free cards or commons. There are one or two epics that are really good but for the most part is it very tame.

Hearthstone shows why MMO's are more and more a kind of side show at the moment.

You have 30 minutes, hop in and have really addicted fun all over the place.

After a break of say 10 months in any MMO you are quite at a loss to return to it. I feel like a complete noob when I returned to WOW recently ... and the frustration was this bad ... I quit.

With games like LOL, Dota2, HS hell even D3 you simply jump in without much thought and have ... FUN.

This is what games are all about really.

3 scoring points for Hearhtstone./

1. Addictive (600 games in 3 weeks ... Oh God - Save our Souls)

2. Smoothly developped to PC/IPad gaming: straight/simple/fast

3. You can go a long long long way without spending a dime in this game, but eventually you are hooked.

 

Clear winner.

Warlock (80% win deck) - Paladin - Hunter - Rogue.

I hate murloc decks and priests stealing my my mind...
