This is our first Mobile Game Monday about a game that isn’t exclusively a mobile game. In fact most would argue that Hearthstone offers a better experience on PC. That being said it is still a mobile game that is very much worth your time and the latest expansion offers some exciting changes to the game.
The most notable change is the new “Standard format.” This is a godsend from Blizzard. Hearthstone is a game that suffers from two major issues. It is incredibly unforgiving to new players and power creep. This format is the answer to both of these issues. Now only the original cards and the most recent expansion can be used to make decks. This makes the game much more streamlined for new players and gives veterans the chance to play new and more diverse decks.
You can still play the game’s previous format now known as “Wild,” but I don’t understand why anyone would want to.
This expansion also comes with some much welcome card reworks like Knife Juggler’s attack being reduced and the removal of the Force of Nature and Savage Roar Druid combo that has been the staple of the class for the past two years.
Hearthstone is a game that I have been playing since the Open Beta. It’s a fun collectable card game featuring characters from the popular MMO World of Warcraft. It’s a fun game for both the casual and the hardcore fans. So why not give “this thinking man’s version of Candy crush and the idiot’s version of Magic the Gathering” a try? If you log in soon enough you’ll get a few free packs just for logging in and another ten for winning about 12 or so games. Happy cardslinging!
Goodbye and good riddance to overpowered cards like Dr. Boom!
See you in Hell Secrets Paladin!
