Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a computer card online game based on the universe of Warcraft. It is developed by Blizzard Entertainment and distributed by the free-to-play model. The game is supported by Blizzard Battle.net, and is loaded through the launcher of Blizzard. When the user starts playing he gets starter kit consisting of a “base” cards. Later you can get rare and more powerful cards by buying sets of cards or receive cards as a reward for playing the game in the Arena. Players can also spray the unwanted card in exchange for Arcane dust, which can be used to create new cards. Sets of cards and the entrance to the Arena can be bought for gold, which is the currency of the game. Gold can be obtained by completing daily quests and battling in the Arena.
You play against an opponent, your task is to bring his life to zero. To reach this each player has creature cards, weapons and magic, as well as the ability of the hero`s class. Deck size in all modes is 30 cards. In the deck can be no more than two identical cards. The battle takes place between the cards on the table. There are several different “fields of battle.” Some parts of the battlefield are interactive. The battleground is chosen at random and does not affect the game.
Hearthstone is a rapidly developing game, which attracts players from other different games and is played by most professional players (You can see how they usually switch to Hearthstone while they are waiting for another game to start). It recently became a cyber sport discipline as well, and is presented on most of the official tournaments. Not as popular as other cyber giant (Yet!!!), but has a great future.
It does not take that much of your time compared to other games. You may be relaxed, having your cup of tea while playing (which is really nice).
Start playing, build your own decks, create your own strategies! And meet you on the battle field of Heathstone.
