    We already have a World of Warcraft trading card game, and if you can find a local store to play battlegrounds and other events at, its an excellent game. If you're interested in trying a World of Warcraft trading card game, visit Cryptozoic's WoWTCG official website and use the 'Store locator'. Its a better game with a long history and a friendly, devoted playerbase for casual as well as competitive play. There's far greater freedom in deckbuilding and if you're lucky you can score loot cards.

    As an avid player and collector of WoW TCG, I'm immensely disappointed that Blizzard opted to go with Hearthstone - which is definitely an inferior game and is obviously more suited to a casual audience that don't play a lot of TCG's. Meanwhile, the WoW TCG still needs an online platform (many players have been asking for it since the game began several years ago). Sadly, when Hearthstone launches on Battlenet, having the two co-exist online without a lot of confusion seems unlikely to ever happen.

    I know some WoW TCG players I meet and play with regularly, who are happy with the announcement for Hearthstone, but most of us at least agree this is deeply confusing, and all of us agree this should have been about the existing TCG, not a new game. The fact Hearthstone recycles artwork from the original TCG, and that Blizzard didn't even mention the TCG at all during their announcement was really disappointing (they mention Magic during their trailer, but pretend like the Wow TCG doesn't exist.)


    TL;DR - I'll continue playing, collecting and enjoying the existing TCG, but if I can find time to play Hearthstone as well, I will. Just not going to spend a single cent on it.
    Yup, it's free so no loss if I don't like it.

    OT: you have CLEARLY played it already, glad to see someone with inside info is here to let everyone know not to waste their time.

    Oh, except you haven't, and are making 1 sided comparisons.

    I will definitely try it. If it's fun and I really enjoy it I may even use some of my monthly gaming budget on it.

    The information we have now is that you can get cards two ways: Buy them for real money, or get them through some sort of in game currency.
    You are buying cards for real money for convenience sake, as it saves you time.
    Hardly "Pay to win".
    1. LoL isn't really "buy THIS champion, profit/automatically better than everyone" as opposed to "buy this ONE card, large profit/automatically better than everyone" which is what a card game would be. Imagine you could play Blackjack and buy more 10's and Ace's.

    2. We don't know how long it's going to take to get in-game money. So, could be pretty grindy or SUPER grindy.

    The only thing that really bugs me with this game is unbelievable amount of colour and gayishness ... not the gay gay, the old gay, where it means funny and colourful ...

    I have the feeling that WoW has become more colorful over the years, and when Diablo 3 was anounced, i was shocked by the sheer amount of colour they've put into that game ...

    and with Hearthstone ... well, look at it ... alot of colour, magic effects ... it is as if Blizz wants us to look at the background instead of the cards ... like it's some kind of distraction ...

    Considering the backgrounds/game boards can be used to distract, they may well want us to. Or, you know, they could just be making a game that is pleasing to the eye and not full of various shades of brown :S Personally, I'll take the extra colours over an awfully boring looking game

    Absolutely. I have been wanting to get into card games for quite a while now, and this seems like a great opportunity. I find the Warcraft universe to be highly interesting as well. It's a win/win.

    It's free, so sure, why not?

  10. #170

  11. #171

    This exactly. Why would you not try a free game that's based on the universe that you play in every day?

    Absolutely I will. It looks fantastic.

    The main reason should be because of the type of game it is.

    I like CCG's and I liked MTG late 90's, which is my reason to give this game a shot.
    I might play WoW but I don't care much for lore, I also never played W3/TFT alot so it's not because it says Warcraft or Blizzard that I'm excited to try it out, it's because it's a CCG which I've always liked.

    Try it? Hell yes.
    Enjoy it? Good chance!
    Believed it could have been anything "BIG" at PAX East, when Blizzcon will be this year? Nope, I've long since learned NOT to hype myself up about much of anything.
    Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
    It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
    Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
    These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.

    It's on my radar. I enjoyed pokemon tcg when I was a kid and spellfire later on but when my friends stopped playing I stopped having much interest in card games but it's free and looks like it's worth a go although I have my doubts I'll get too into it.

    A card game, not contingent on trading or buying cards, but actually me playing, yet I can still play against my friends?

    And it's free?

    Who wouldn't try this? You'd have to be a hateful person not to try it.
