What will hearthstone come to?

12 posts in this topic

I believe I heard hearthstone will be coming to a phone... Is this true? If so, which phone(s)? And will hearthstone be available on any other systems or devices other than PC?

I'm pretty sure its only going to be available on PC/Mac and iPad.  The future may say otherwise.

It will be hardly playable on any device with less than 8" or 7" of screen size, that's probably why it only comes to the iPad, not the iPhone. And of course Mac and PC, as every other current Blizzard game, afaik.

I think it would be very hard to adapt the game to a phone. Even if I have a 1080x1920 display on my galaxy s4, I don't think it would be very easy to play hearthstone on it, mostly because the cards would be too small and it would be hard to "click" stuff.

Is this where I can go to bitch about priests?  They have the answer to everything.  The future of Hearthstone better read: We're nerfing priests so that you don't have to stack your deck with minions that have 4 attack.

 

Oh you have a useful minion with 3 or less attack?  It's dead.

 

Oh you have a useful minion with 5 or more attack? It's dead.

 

Oh you have a useful minion and I ran out of douche cards?  It's mine.

 

BLIZZ PLZ!

Apart from the fact that this is completely off-topic...

 

I play a priest and I can't do shit once I have lost too many minions; priests very much rely on them, so I think it is necessary to have a few cards that can balance a possible advantage in minions the opponent might have. I should also remind you that the other classes have strong nuking abilities as well,  I believe the Warrior has a few of them, no?

I was really just trying to be funny because these Hearthstone forums are basically dead, but the capacity for a priest to destroy powerful minions at any point in the game is huge.  Whoops, I just played an Earth Elemental, causing me to lose 3 crystals next turn, and I coupled it with a windfury.  I now give all of that to the priest and am set back the following round.

 

Maybe it's just my shaman that is finding them annoying?  Of any class though, priests have an easier time holding board advantage by throwing out heals.  They also have really efficient nuking power with shadowform and even more so with shadowform x2.  3 targetted damage every round for 2 mana is pretty amazing.  Throw Velen into the picture and owy, assuming the enemy doesn't have an answer to him.

I am not sure if this is even possible with a 30 card limit. :D

Back on topic, it was said,"iOS and android" does android have a tablet? I realize the complications with hearthstone on a phone exist, but does iOS mean iPad as well? If so, I suppose it will likely be coming to computer/ tablet and not phones so that's something to keep in mind , and don't get your hopes up about a phone version like I did.

Its both.  Its coming for iPad first, then for iOS and Android devices.  This wont happen until the later half of next year, but yes.  You'll be able to play it on your phone becasue that is what they showed pictures of at blizzcon.

I've both trashed and been trashed by Priests, and both trashed others and been trashed when playing a Priest. The real strength they have, which a lot of players miss, is that a lot of their card draw borrows from the other's deck. Being able to think on your feet and use that versatility to your advantage is the key. The buffing thing is just gimmick play and can be countered with either good removal or high burst. I wound up with an 18/18 minion with Windfury in one match, but I still lost because the shaman was able to finish me off before I smashed him with it.

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is called Blood Magic. It is the 88th Tavern Brawl.
      Blood Magic has a simple enough concept, which is that all spells cost Health instead of Mana. This could lead to an interesting metagame where healing is premium, and expensive burn spells are used to finish your opponent. Violet Illusionist is a key card in this Brawl, it allows the burn finish to only kill your opponent and not yourself. I expect to see it a lot over the coming days. 
      This is the third constructed Brawl in a row. It is an interesting Brawl to me, as I have felt that Blizzard have been trying to push this mechanic slowly on us over the last few expansions, but are terrified of it. In other card games, paying Health for cards has often been a broken mechanic, and I feel this might be a test to see how far they can push it.
      As always, feel free to leave your own lists in the comments.
