    That is just the bullshit Apple wants people to believe because android tablets cost a baseline of around 25% less that ipads with equal capabilities. IPads are amazingly overpriced and apple has this whole "we are higher quality blah blah blah" campaign because they know sheople will buy into it.

    Simple fact, is Blizzard doesn't put this out for android as well as applecrap they are losing a huge chunk of possible profits.
    What exactly is your problem with Apple and their business strategy. Seriously, "sheopple" ?. So I am a sheep because I bought an iPad tablet over an Android one ?

    Umm... yes.

    Same specs, you pay more for apple than android simply because it's from apple. People can say the quality is better, but that simply isn't true, actually the quality on them are about equal. But if that trendy apple logo is enough for you to hand over an extra 200ish bucks well.... Yeah I dunno what to tell you.

    BAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    As to my problem with Apple and their "marketing strategy" it is simply this. They lie, and people buy into it. Hey, if the sheople wanna just burn their money for a fancy logo then that is their decision. I will do research on products before I commit on any electronic purchases and Apple simply doesn't stand up to that scrutiny.

    Edit: Oh and Sheople only has one p.

    I don't understand this Apple hate though. Even though I own an Android phone (Galaxy S4) I can understand why people would want to pay more for an iPhone or choose it over an Android, despite having outdated specifications.

    Even though the user experience are more or less the same on both platforms, Apple does offer it's user a far better and higher quality app library. Also one which get's new apps on a frequent basis. Android (or any other platform) simply can not compete with the AppStore. iOS get's them first or exclusive, so I can see that as a good reason to choose an iPhone over an Android.

    For me personally, I like the freedom more and having a better screen, removable battery, SD card, better multimedia etc so I would never go to iOS. But I can understand why some people do.

    Yeah, this thread is not about what's the better platform, and this forum is not the location to house such a discussion. I suggest we stick to the intended topic of Hearthstone coming to mobile platforms at some point.

    Hearthstone on tablet devices is very wise business decision as the tablet market is quite a large player base they can bite into.

    It's just smart business. My only concern is that they have seperate graphical versions for tablet / PC / console whatever, so that the processing power of a tablet doesn't define the game as a whole.

    It's a CCG, what kind of processing power could they really need?

    I'm sure it will happen, if not just slightly later.

    Blizzard has always been great with releases on both Windows/OSX at the same time, but we're in new territory now with the mobile platforms. I'm sure we'll see it.

    Though, while not hearthstone, something that drives me nuts is Microsoft's Spartan Assault is not coming to (even if just yet) iOS devices or Android Devices. I understand they're saving it for the windows mobile devices and Windows 8, but you're killing me here! They are BUTCHERING their potential purchases.

    Speaking as a normal poster, please avoid taking the tone of this conversation down this road.

    Apple vs PC/Android is simple, it's a matter of preference. Plenty of people will choose Apple products, plenty of people won't, likewise plenty of people will convert for whichwhatever reason from one side to the other. It's all about preference. Don't bring your personal preference into this and, in fact, your condescending and pretentious attitude into the conversation. It's not helpful, nor is it productive, you're only taking the conversation down a road it's better saying away from.


    On topic, I do enjoy this news and am glad to see this. I'm sure it will come to Android platforms shortly after/in due time. I'll be excited to have this game on the go, and when I get an Apple TV, it will be nice to have it nice and big on the big screen!

    It is simple, it is a matter of people believing the false advertisement and not having the will to do their own research before making a purchase. You can't possibly do research between Apple vs Android tablets and come to the conclusion that Apple is the better option. Same specs comes out to equal quality ratings and Android being between 15-30% cheaper. Same price comes out to equal quality ratings and much more powerful android tablet. But w/e, trying to tell the sheople stuff like that is pointless. And if you find the term sheople condescending, well, welcome to America where the majority of the public are sheople.

    Edit: Also, after the previous mod said to get back on topic I wasn't going to further reply, but since you, speaking as a "normal poster", thought it would be okay to ignore the previous mod, then it is also okay for me as a "normal poster".

    Android tablets suck they offer awful user experience, few apps made just for the android tablet experience, and the product design is bad. MS Surface is the nearest competitor

    Allright, let me do it officially then, in nice bold blue lettering. No more discussion of which platform is better or the best.

    This is the Hearthstone forum, and this thread is about wether or not, and when if so the Hearthstone game is coming to this particular platform. Discussion will stick to that, and keep the discussion for the better platform in the Computer forum.

    Well they stated within the first few weeks of announcing hearthstone that it was coming to the ipad. Then stated they had no timeline on Android. Anyone intelligent enough to go to the official hearthstone forums can see that.

    You shouldn't have concerns about things you have no knowledge about. Current tablets and smartphones can run games that are close to xbox/ps3 visuals.

    In any case, it's a card game. Even a low-end tablet/phone shouldn't have much trouble running it at all (assuming it's a low end that came out in the last few years).
