Hearthstone - The Curse of Naxxramas Now Live!
The first content addition to Hearthstone is now live! It adds thirty new cards, fifteen boss encounters, class challenges, Heroic Mode, and more!

The adventure is divided into 5 different wings and each wing will cost 700 gold or $6.99 USD. If you pay using real money and buy wings in bulk, each wing will only cost $5 USD. If you play Naxxramas during the first month, you will receive the first wing for free.

    I didn't get Disconnected out v Anub'Rekan!

    Wow, this launch is embarrassing. I thought they launched in the latter half of July so things like permanent disconnects, inability to connect, internal errors and such wouldn't happen.

    Pathetic.

    Every game in every online genre on every patch day in the history of the internet's invention has always had problems. Why is this even a surprise or news to anyone nowadays? =/

    Why carry water for Blizzard? That's not a valid excuse for a botched launch. I'm not even sure if anyone is able to play Naxxramas at the moment. From my memory of the launch of WoTLK, the launch was pretty smooth, bar the reneging on Death Knights on other servers and lie about aerial combat.

    You're not getting any brownie points for excusing performance beyond mediocrity on behalf of Blizzard.

    I've seen far worse online launches. Seen better too.

    I only fought Anub before coming out of the game but everything worked perfectly well.

    The trolls use the first day launch issues in order to complain for the sake of complaining.

    He doesn't really believe a single word he types. He's just saying stuff to goad people into responding to him.

    Some classes still are overpowerd as fuck compared to others, blizzards balance team are really not doing well with this game (balance wise).

    As much as I like Hearthstone (I'm even very active in its subforum) I don't think its news should be posted here. Its unfair to other games that could've been on the front page.

    Looks amazing but dc'd after every fight on solo adventure and problems logging in when I try to get back on. To be expected but good to finally be able to see it. The 'commentary' is a bit cheesy though after every stage or fight.

    Seriously - who you kidding? It's clearly wow champion and gives two sh1ts to anything other than wow or wow related products.

    Silly post!

    pretty fail launch.

    Bugs, lag, log on issues.,


    And the AI is hilarious, had it effectively kill itself twice on me.....


    Still, I like the actual content, just wish it was more polished and it woudl be nice if a company making over a billion a year, could perhaps not launch things like its an indie dev on its first project....

    Hearthstone is not WoW. WoW is an MMO. It's an MMO that was brought down for 12 hours to launch this stupid card game crap and now has been extended to 14 hours.

    I didn't have any issues with the game other than major lag. Beat all three bosses and one of the class challenges and didn't get DCed once. But the lag was annoying me so I quit playing for now.

    I hear you on that, the AI is definitely a little wonky. I played Maexxna and got utterly destroyed the first match and then the second match it was like the AI wasn't even playing. Then I had one against Faerlina where the boss set me up for a win, I had one card out with was a 4/6 and the boss attacked my card cause it had 2 of the +1 worshiping minions out and attacked my card with it and then attacked my hero with the rest of her cards and that put her at 8 health left. Well, I was playing Paladin and had a blessing of kings in my deck and applied it to my card and won. It was rather silly that the AI would set itself up for a defeat like that.

    That may be the name of the site. But it's expanded to go to all Blizzard products rather than just WoW, including important patches and information relevant to the game universes of Blizzard: WoW, Diablo, Hearthstone, Starcraft and Heroes of the Storm; while also touching other MMOs now and then.
    Long since has it been strictly only WoW; however WoW is still the main topic of the site (with other Blizzard products as secondary).
