Introduction to Hearthstone

Hearthstone is a digital card game and ever since its release in 2014 it has truly set card games on the map, both for gaming, but also esports. There have been other card games in the past such as Magic: The Gathering, but Hearthstone pushed the genre to a new level.  

 

What is Hearthstone? 

Hearthstone is a card game where players play each other 1on1 with decks they have built from the collection. The games consists of 10 classes from the WarCraft universe:

  • Demon Hunter
  • Druid
  • Hunter
  • Mage
  • Paladin
  • Priest
  • Rogue
  • Shaman
  • Warlock
  • Warrior

Each class has their own class specific cards, but the majority of cards are shared and can be used no matter what class is played. A deck consists of 30 cards, that can be freely chosen by the player, with the limitation of 2 or 1 of each card. Gathering cards is a big part of Hearthstone and is done by simply playing the game, or you can choose to spend really money to buy packs, which then can be opened for random rewards tied to which pack it is. Another game mode in Hearthstone is Arena, where the player pays an entry fee, either with in-game gold or real money.

The player chooses a class and then drafts a deck through choosing one out of three random cards until the deck is full. Arena runs reward the player with packs, gold and dust that is used to create cards - the more wins you get, the better the reward. Hearthstone is a really fun game, both casually or competitively and gives players the ability to play short games when they have a moment left over, both on PC and Mobile.

Why should I play Hearthstone? 

Hearthstone all around is a less serious game with many outlets for players not looking for a hard time getting into a game. Card games are a popular hobby and being able to access all of your cards and decks whether it be on your mobile device or desktop makes the game even more appealing. You can play with anybody virtually anywhere or complete grindy tasks while on your lunch break. The allure of a card game with the finesse of the digital age come together well and offer a lot to the player as a whole. 

There isn’t much to get upset over even if you do have a slightly too competitive side and the consistent updates to the game to keep it fresh and add more material to play around with. You can discover an infinite amount of combinations for decks and store them easily for when you want to use them, and that’s half the fun.

How do I learn more about Hearthstone?

Hearthstone is a fairly simple game in its basics and it only begins to get complex once the player goes deeper and adventures into high ranked play. It is a fun way to pass the time and if you are someone who likes a challenge then there are multiple ways to find one. If you want to play it competitively there is a ranked mode and a meta that goes along with it. It has a little bit of everything and is a surefire fun game to play, provided you don’t mind grinding for cards or can put a little bit of extra cash into the game.
