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.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
