    Everytime I read "copy from x,too childish,wtf a tcg,lolpay2win" I get really sad about the condition of some people.
    Why is a copy a bad thing? And it isn't even a copy , because the only thing they got in common with other hardplay/onlineplay TCG's is that it is a TCG. Like WoW is a MMO and Diablo is a ARPG. Are those two games exact copies of other games around? No , they got different in depth gameplays , different themes , different franchises.
    It is like yelling at Samsung for copying iPads , when the only thing they did is to make a genre/product accessible to a broader range of people. Nothing wrong about it here. And everyone who watched the livestream to the ACTUAL END and got a little bit of smartness , will see how this will definately crush every other available Smartphone/Tablet game within the first second.
    It isn't pay to win , because it has the battle.net matchmade system. To counter that argument , one need to say Starcraft 2 is complete crap because of the matchmade system , while it is not. It has the best and most developed matchmaking system and because of that it is the deserved number one online strategy game , with the largest base of professional gamers all around the world. And we are still talking about a little niche game , which is meant to bring fun to you guys , not ripping it apart because it isnt hardcore enough for you.
    If you think you are hardcore , go and buy the cards all day and guess what? Because of the matchmaking system you are then matched up with other "hardcores" throwing their money at the screen. For us normal people , we will totally enjoy it , while having spare times on the road or having some fun in bed/couch whatever at the evening.
    And I will rephrase it : It won't take long to overtake the whole mobile gaming market with this , because this is Blizzard quality work , like we know it from it's other franchises. It is tailored to suit anyone. From kid to mother at home to the bored WoW gamer. Just grab the iPad/smartphone and have fun with a quality ad-free ( seriously , which free to play/download app isn't malfested with ads and bad programming? This isn't , it is a high quality piece of software and a high quality business model ) and !EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND GRASP! game.

    First, from the way they are advertising it, you can get every card from playing or from paying.

    Second, I think golden cards are just the equivalent of "foil" cards from MtG. I.e. they look different, but don't do anything different in gameplay.

    Then wait till November. That's when Blizzcon is, where they Traditionally announce new major titles.

    As an avid player and collector of the WoW TCG, I'm extremely disappointed by this news. We needed a platform to play the existing TCG on battle.net, and a lot of TCG players have long been asking Blizzard and Cryptozoic (and Upper Deck before that) for online game. Hearthstone is just insulting.

    That's Blizzard testing League of Legends' business model.

    You don't need to pay a penny in order to play, but if you want to acquire new cards/heroes faster you may want to spend real money.

    Just add a bit of competitive play through Battle.net and let the magic works.
    Soon lots of $ for Blizzard.

    The main weakness looks like it will be hard to create fully optional features (like Champion skins in LoL) that could be sold by Blizzard (oustide of the cards themselves).

    Objects that could be sold by Blizzard:
    Card packs (obviously) with random combination of cards (introduce rarity factor as for all TCG).
    Heroes.
    Starter Decks for specific class/faction in order to get quickly a basis to play a new hero.

    As the graphical part of the game is quite simple, that would be hard to sell "cosmetic" objects.

    Teenager raging over an awesome old school card game made online.
    I feel old...

    And sad, knowing teenagers/kids nowadays will never know the real feel of tabletop and card games.

    I weep for thy...

    Some of these card games are amazingly profitable, and quite popular. Attacking it because it's something you may not enjoy is silly.

    The no Andriod is pretty stupid yeah, but card games are pretty popular. Magic the Gathering is one of my favorite games.

    This is from their Twitter
    We're looking at the possibility of additional platforms in the future. Current development is for PC, Mac, and iPad.
    There will probably be an 'Android' version in the future

    I don't get why people are so angry at Blizzard, it's a business doing business.
    you don't have to play it, it doesn't cost you anything and its not taking away from other games, they've been working on this for a while now and still released 3 major titles in a year.
    and F2P is a valid business model, they even allow you to unlock all cards through playing instead of buying, no-one is forcing you to buy anything, don't like it? don't play it!

    this is like being angry at an ice cream factory for making Strawberry ice cream while you only like to eat Chocolate (which they still make).

    To quote Falric; "Despair... so delicious..."

    I'm somewhat disappointed. Not at the fact that it's a TCG, because I love TCGs and other tabletop games, but because I wanted it to be a straight-up conversion of the Cryptozoic TCG.

    Nonetheless I've opted for the beta and, with any luck, I'll enjoy it.
