Blizzard Survey Asks: "Would You Continue Playing Hearthstone if There Were No Tournaments"

Recommended Posts

6A8DB6CREWSL1534450318368.jpg

Many players - initially from Korea, but then from all regions - have received a survey about Hearthstone and the latest expansions. One of the questions of the survey asks players how likely they would be to to play the card game within the next 30 days, if there were no Blizzard sponsored tournaments.

The question has made a lot of people nervous, given that Heroes of the Storm esports were recently axed and the game will go in maintenance mode in the near future. The climate is already heavy with the latest WoW expansion not being received that greatly and all the rumours about Activision meddling into Blizzard. The recent news about two Activision Blizzards CFOs leaving the company and Bungie (the developer of Destiny 2) jumping ship from Activision only managed to spark the rumours that things aren't going that well for Blizzard. Hearthstone also saw its game director and public face, Ben Brode, leave this year - along with other notable Hearthstone devs.

Significant changed to the structure of the Hearthstone Championship Tour were announced less than two months ago, so Hearthstone esports have a future for 2019 at least. Of course, the conspiracy lovers immediately pointed out that HotS devs promised that HGC would continue in 2019, only to announce its cancellation less than a month afterwards.

The full survey was shared on Reddit by u/HelixFossil89.

It is important to put this matter into perspective without panicking. First of all, this was a single question in a 35-question survey about the game in general and Rastakhan's Rumble in particular. The conductors of the survey obviously want to get the general opinion of their playerbase on major issues. Just because they asked this particular question, it doesn't necessarily mean they are considering axing Hearthstone esports.

Second, there is no indication that Hearthstone isn't doing well. Sure, it may have lost some players but it probably still is Blizzard's second best earner. Its competition has definitely not managed to thwart it and the latest balance changes - while they weren't exactly successful in creating a healthy meta - were received with excitement and positivity by most of the community.

On the other hand, Blizzard has spent quite a lot of money on the Hearthstone professional scene and perhaps there is a limit of how much they can keep throwing at it. There is also the matter that even though Hearthstone has been successful as an esport, it has managed that without being taken totally seriously - even by its own players. The 2019 plans also seem a bit vague-ish, although it should be noted that the January qualifiers are well underway.

Say yes so that the funds are moved to WoW 😄

Jokes on you - WoW has no funds what so ever and wont get any more. All of these funds will be plowed into the only remaining powerhouse game Activision cares for Blizzard to keep alive; Overwatch.

Honestly? I haven't watched a single tournament, streamer, or taken part in any tournament in several years yet play Hearthstone several times a week.

I received an email to participate in that survey. Upon clicking the link, I was redirected to a page saying "thank you for participating in this survey", and that was it. I did not get to answer any question. If I click the link again, it says I have already taken part in the survey and I can't do it again.

That's pretty poor from Blizzard, and not how they are actually going to get proper feedback from their players.

Call me a curmudgeon - maybe I am! - but I long for the days when "esports" were barely a thing outside of QuakeCon, when no one cared about streaming, when developers didn't seek ways to endlessly monetize their products. But we're never going back, and to me it sucks - I'm just here to play the damn games.

Even Overwatch doesn't get much of new content, so likely more will be invested into new titles.

I barely played any HS, but I do play HOTS quite often and I do think that people REALLY overstimate the role of professional e-sports. I mean, HOTS doesn't have it anymore and probably things won't change that much. For instance, Icy Veins gave HGC almost no coverage, but people don't remember it now, do they? 😛

I think it varies. Culturally, I think card games tend to be more top-down -- even though Hearthstone is very accessible by design and has a huge "casual" base, so much of the game and culture around it is informed by the top-level players and tournaments. Especially since players can break into the competitive scene just by playing at a high level and pushing into Legend ranks every season, getting Hearthstone Masters points. It's hard to imagine a card game remaining as successful and relevant as Hearthstone is without the top players streaming and making content, but it's possible.

Hearthstone is too expensive to make sense. Same with Magic, but at least those could be resold.

Here's another question. Do funded E-Sports raise the price of games?

I remember the days when it took days to level in Diablo 2.  I don't miss the days when Blizzard released a new update to their titles hardly ever, compared to nowdays. More money = more content; I like nowadays.

how do you go from that premise to that other one? Believe what you want to think.

Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy "more money = more content." The free content updates these days are cooler than getting extra throwaway (to me) multiplayer maps for Starcraft or War3. But Blizzard was, and I'd say still is, more consistent about supporting games with updates than most developers. I don't think "hardly ever" accurately reflects the updates of the time.

Also, leveling in D2 wasn't hard at all until they completely fucked leveling past 70 with - what else? - an update.

Have you never seen Mad Men? This is exactly what they do when want information on an issue without making it too obvious that that's what they're asking for. They create a survey with a bunch of irrelevant questions, and throw that one question that actually means something in there somewhere. HS e-sports is on the chopping block. Nobody cares about it. Their entire Twitch audience watches an arena player. Ranked is an afterthought.

This is probably true, they already announced it for all the brands they own.

Truth be told, I am actually counting on WoW to finally fall, at least to a point where a new expansion might not be as profitable as they were. This is the only chance I see for Warcraft IV (RTS I mean) to see light ever again.

I don't care much about watching regular streamers but I think the tournaments are actually pretty important for a card game like this to be taken seriously by the community. Look at Magic: the Gathering. I don't think it would have stayed around this long if they didn't have such a huge tournament atmosphere around their game. Granted, the digital nature of HS means it will remain accessible to all players. However, the top players are likely to become much less interested and there WILL be a trickle down effect.

That's indeed quite possible.

That, on the other hand, isn't so obvious (which must be why Blizzard asked the question in a poll). Care to explain how you think casual players care about top players and tournaments? They have collections I'll never be able to afford, therefore playing decks I will never own and never play. They certainly have skills way beyond mine as well, playing the game 8h/day all year long. This makes it almost a different game altogether. I have never watched any tournament and do not plan to.

To make a parallel between online game tournaments and sports on TV, you don't have to play a given sport by yourself to enjoy watching professionals. On the other hand, you may also play a sport and not watch it on TV. Doing it and watching others do it are quite different things. In the end, What really matters on TV (and for online tournaments) is how entertaining it is to watch. Is there variety, suspense, emotion, turnarounds?

The only difference I see between online game tournaments and sports on TV is that many sports don't need any prior knowledge to be interesting to watch. I believe you can enjoy watching a basketball game or soccer game on TV without knowing much of the rules beyond where the ball must go to score. That doesn't hold for Hearthstone for example, for which it seems clear that the tournament audience must be a subset of the player base. If you don't know the game rules and mechanics, you won't understand what you're watching. That, however, doesn't imply that the player base would shrink if there was no tournaments. People have been playing video games long before professional gaming became a thing.

I believe the actual way to make players stay is by keeping the game itself interesting to play by the intended audience. That means keeping all the balances right (cards balance, classes balance, ladder mechanism, arena matching mechanism) and the contents interesting (solo adventures existence and balance, tavern brawl diversity, quests, events). The rewards are also key in keeping players motivated. These are areas on which Blizzard has been working a lot already, with many changes over the years, but I dare say there is still room for improvement.

For example, I believe that tavern brawls are under-exploited, because of how they are rewarded. Most players are trying it only until they win it once, to get the reward, and then no more until the following week. They could build a lot on top of the tavern brawl concept to make it more interesting and/or more rewarding, like mini-tournaments, or a temporary one-week-ladder ranking system, or rewards for winning streaks. But I guess I'm getting off-topic now 😉

This is pretty much the same people do in HOTS. They would mostly play only to get the loot chest and rarely any more. I myself enjoy one lane brawls so I would play them very often when they come, but other brawls usually work for me the same - get chest, donlt play anymore.

      In the next major update, new cards will be added to Classic card packs while two old favourites are going away.
      With many cards being added to the Hall of Fame during the years, there were gaps in the Basic and Classic sets. Blizzard has announced today their replacements and went on a lengthy explanation on class identity.
      Eight replacements were needed for the Classic set: 5 Neutral cards and for Warlock, Druid and Paladin.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      We’re always assessing the prominence and impact of cards from every set, including Basic and Classic, and will continue to make changes when we believe it makes for a healthier meta-game and a better experience for players. This may come in the form of additions to the Hall of Fame or with the introduction of new cards that we feel bring some fresh new options to players, while still being healthy for the game.
      When moving Classic cards to the Hall of Fame, we always look to introduce new cards to this set in order to keep a healthy amount of easily-obtainable cards available to players in Standard format games.
      Here are the cards:





      Blizzard Entertainment
      Since these are Basic and Classic cards (and so not subject to set rotation), we want to be careful with their power level so that Hearthstone can continue to feel fresh with each new year. At the same time, we’d like to provide effects that are natural for their class and can be useful in the right circumstances. With this update, Team 5 has decided to add two more cards to the Hall of Fame and introduce their replacements. If you've been paying attention to recent interviews and news, you won't be surprised to learn that Mind Blast and Vanish are going away.

      Here is Blizzard's reasoning on why these cards are rotating out of Standard:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      While we like Rogues’ knack for getting out of sticky situations with targeted removal, Vanish allows them to effectively clear an entire board. This negates one of their intended weaknesses, reduces our ability to design towards their strengths, and makes it much harder for players to strategize against a Rogue.
      Mind Blast gives Priests the ability to inflict a large amount of direct Face damage. We want to limit the amount of damage that Priests are able to deal from their hand, which will allow us to make cards that better emphasize their strengths in controlling the game. And here are their two replacements:

      Blizzard Entertainment
      For Priests, we’ve added Radiance since we wanted to have a low-cost spell that could be used for tricky spell synergies that also provided a powerful baseline heal for the class.  Plaguebringer provides Rogues with another way to destroy minions and further establishes this class as the masters of Poison. All the new cards will be available through crafting and/or Classic card packs.
      The blog post also contains a lengthy introduction on class identity and a breakdown of each class's strengths, limitations and weaknesses. It's a very interesting read:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      Establishing Class Identity
      When defining a class’s identity, we’re primarily concerned with staying true to the following three guidelines: adhere to a class’s “fantasy”, define the things the class should excel at, and establish where the class should struggle.
      When looking at the fantasy of each class we want to capture the emotion of the class through gameplay. That could mean charging headfirst into battle as a Warrior, wielding devastating magical spells as a Mage, or plotting the perfect combination of moves as a Rogue. Once we know what makes a class tick, we can make better decisions about what cards fit and empower that fantasy.
      Establishing stronger class identities serves several purposes.  Giving classes better defined characteristics allows us to have more freedom when creating new mechanics. We can push further into the extremes knowing that each class has downsides to balance out new power. It also enables more counter-play when there is a clearer understanding of a class’s strengths and weaknesses. For example, the knowledge that a Druid is weak against big minions lets you start planning your strategy from the start of the match, with little to no knowledge of your opponent’s specific deck.
      Class Breakdown
      Here’s a brief look into how we currently picture each of the classes:
      Strengths: These are the things that a class focuses on and excels at. Limitations: These are aspects that might show up a few times in a class, but they are very limited in power level and the number of cards. Weaknesses: These are aspects that a class either doesn’t have or struggles to achieve effectively. Druid: Attuned with nature, Druids rely on the magic of the wild, massive beasts, and swarms of woodland creatures. Their toolbox allows them the versatility to pivot from defense to aggression. However, they have limited ways to directly clear out enemy minions.
      Strengths: Mana generation, giant minions, minion swarms, card draw, Beasts Weaknesses: Destroying big minions, board clear Hunter: Hunters use their wit, ferocity, and an army of beasts fighting alongside them to destroy their competition. Although they lack in defense, their aggression allows them to push through before they need it. A well-timed Secret or Deathrattle can help them gain clutch advantages against their opponent.
      Strengths: Beasts, face damage, Secrets, Deathrattle Limitations: Card draw and generation, board clear, Taunt Weaknesses: Healing Mage: Mages have mastered the arcane arts and use their wide range of spells to take on even the most aggressive of opponents. Their defensive cadre is limited—while a good Mage usually has a useful tool to deal with any situation, a great Mage conjures the right tool when they need it.
      Strengths: Spells (big and small), damage spells, Secrets, board clear Limitations: Minion swarms Weaknesses: Healing, Taunt, minion buffs Paladin: Paladins are great champions who support their minions with buffs, healing, and divine shields; however, they are not afraid to get their hands dirty when the time comes. They are methodical, controlling the battlefield through debuffs and focused attacks instead of destructive spells. Strength and persistence are the keys to a Paladin’s victory.
      Strengths: Minion swarms, minion buffs and debuffs, healing, Divine Shield, Secrets Limitations: Cost reduction Weaknesses: Direct damage spells, destroying big minions Priest: Priests balance holy light and shadow magic to defeat their opponents. They control a battle’s outcome using powerful spells with situational applications. While not the most aggressive, they are able to generate, copy, and use combinations of cards to create a powerful army.
      Strengths: Healing, narrow but powerful spells, copying, single-minion buffs, Deathrattle Limitations: Card draw Weaknesses: Face damage spells, multi-minion buffs Rogue: Rogues hide in the shadows, planning for the perfect time to strike. They may be sneaky and nimble, but they lack strong defenses and regeneration, forcing them to act quickly to incapacitate an opponent. Their innate ability to generate, draw, and burgle cards allows them to build up and execute on many synergies.
      Strengths: Combo cards, destroying individual minions, card draw, weapons, Deathrattle Weaknesses: Taunt, healing, board clear, multi-minion buffs Shaman: Shamans wield the power of the elements along with their trusty totems. While they may not be able to generate resources as quickly as a Mage, they are able to overload their Mana Crystals with lightning, allowing them to ramp up for a burst of power faster than other classes. Shamans are thus rewarded for planning a few turns ahead by tuning their mana curve. Shamans also have strong tools to adapt to many situations. Although they are not as versatile as a Druid’s Choose One cards, they are able to extend their capabilities in ways other classes might not be able to.
      Strengths: Minion swarms, damage spells, Totems, Elementals, Murlocs Weaknesses: Card draw, card generation Warlock: Sometimes sacrifices need to be made for power, and when you get demons involved this is often the case. The Warlock is comfortable with this bond and can manage all their resources (including their Health) in order to defeat their opponent. Their inherent ability to draw cards—with a sacrifice—allows them to keep the power flowing.
      Strengths: Powerful sacrifice effects, card draw, minion swarms, disruption, Demons Weaknesses: Face damage spells, big healing Warrior: Warriors thirst for the battlefield. Primarily a martial class, they incorporate Armor, weapons, and minions to destroy their opponents. The minions who fight alongside each Warrior tend to be bigger and stronger, and they employ Rush and Taunt to control the flow of battle.
      Strengths: Armor, weapons, Taunt, destroying minions Limitations: Card draw and generation Weaknesses: Face damage spells, multi-minion buffs, minion swarms Neutral: Neutral cards allow classes to extend their strengths to reach a specific goal with their deck or to make up for some of their weaknesses. For example, a Paladin can add Neutral Murlocs to help them round out their deck, or a Hunter may use a Neutral card that gives them a small amount of healing so they can stay in the fight longer. These cards are generally lower in power level so a class can never completely overcome their weaknesses.

      We've seen a rotating set pool in Arena this year and now it's time to play with the idea on a Tavern Brawl setting. This week, you are required to build a deck using only certain expansions.
      Specifically, in this constructed Tavern Brawl you need to build a deck using cards only from the following sets: Whispers of the Old Gods, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan and Rastakhan's Rumble.
      With Gadgetzan in the mix, it's no surprise that Jade decks are already omnipresent in this Tavern Brawl; the ability to summon even larger men is just too good. C'Thun decks are also quite popular.
      If you miss cards from these expansions, you can use the auto-fill feature or just queue a deck of any size, with the game automatically filling the rest of your deck.
      As always, you will get a Classic pack after your first win.
    • By Zadina
      If you want to try Wild, there's a one-time bundle available that allows you to get 56 packs from Wild expansions.
      Toki's Wild Bundle contains 56 packs - 8 from each of the following Wild expansions: Goblins vs Gnomes, The Grand Tournament, Whispers of the Old Gods, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, Journey to Un'Goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne and Kobolds & Catacombs.
      The Bundle costs 35 dollars/euros, with Blizzard claiming it's a "75%+ bonus value". You may purchase the bundle once per account only from the Blizzard Shop (not ingame). It can also be gifted.
      It will be available until July 1st.

      Mike Donais appeared at his daughter's stream yesterday and he answered a few questions about new cards, balance and the upcoming expansion.
      In case anyone is wondering, Mike's daugher is Melody Serafina, she is 22 years old and she is a Twitch streamer. Yesterday (which was Father's Day), she played the Dalaran Heist adventure with her father.
      u/imicekczech watched the stream and he was kind enough to provide bullet points with everything that Mike said. Below, I've categorised said bulletpoints under topics discussed:
      Balance & Cards
      New classic cards are going to be announced in few weeks. Big Priest is "still" being watched closely but nothing new. In the future we will see more cards that work like Reno Jackson and even maybe for other classes (not just Mage, Warlock, Priest). Mike was responsible for the Rockbiter Weapon nerf. We will see more buffs in the future, but they want to try something different than buffs and nerfs in the future too.  (We don't know what or when.) In the upcoming sets we will see a card that could make your Pogo-Hopper a 45/45 easily. We might see one hero card this year, just maybe. Sometimes they release a 4 mana 7/7 just for the memes. They already did a few cards like Shadowform and we might see some more of them in the next expansion. (Dinomancy, Lord Jaraxxus, Hero Cards, etc.) It´s quite possible that we will see Classic Cards buffs in the future. (It isn't that high on their list.) Next expansion
      RoS was about the bad guys, new expansions should be about other things? Mike thinks that the trailer and the theme for the next expansion is awesome and probably everyone will love it. Mike's favourite expansions are League of Explorers and Journey to Un'Goro. So, judging from what he said in the previous point and the other point about Reno cards making a return, a new LoE expansion looks quite possible (check out this clip as well) The story of Rafaam will continue with new expansions this year but it's not only about him. Dalaran Heist & Adventures
      Haro Setting-Sun is going to be nerfed next week.  It would be cool to allow golden cards in the adventure and Mike agreed. With the next expansion, we will see also a new adventure but its playstyle might be different. We will probably see the most popular Dalaran Heist playable characters as class skins. (At least one would be great, Mike said.) They have 2 lines fixed between bosses from Dalaran Heist (power level-wise) and if any is above or below the lines, they are establishing them accordingly. They tried to do an "infinity" mode for adventures, but it ended up being boring. (12+ bosses will probably never happen.) Future plans and ideas
      We will see more in-game shop skins for real money in the future. They are working on cosmetics. We will see a better deck copying feature and maybe even better deck sharing with your in-game friends. Mike said that special legendary card back with its expansion logo for every expansion would be a nice idea. Splitting expansions into 2 smaller expansions has been discussed, it would be good as things would change quickly. Random hero option is a good idea as random card back option already exists and it wouldn't be hard to implement that into the game. A lot of HS devs are playing MtG and they are maybe getting some ideas from it. Artwork & Animations
      Angry Chicken and Chicken arts aren't going to be updated ever because it would be distracting for the players. There are plans about changing animations for some classic cards in the future. From past statements, likely candidates could be Tirion Fordring and Edwin VanCleef. Giant Wasp doesn't look like really stealth minion with her pink "tentacles", that's because they had her art first and then they decided to give her a poisonous and stealth because she was the only meaningful card in the set that could have poisonous.
