    How do you call a Hearthstone player?

    So I read this thread on the official forums: http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/en/...pic/8517961791

    It made me wonder what do YOU think a Heartstone player should be called? I mean Hearthstone player doesn't really roll of the tongue, so we need something better to call ourselves!

    Stoner works, I guess. But I think if you tell a stranger you're a Stoner they won't immediately think you play an innocent online card game, so not sure if the name works beyond it's use as an in-joke

    a hearthie?
    Like the cracker fed to the starving man, WoD was handed to the loyal player, starved of new content for 14 months in MoP.
    At first, it was the best thing he had ever tasted, this new meal, but as his stomach started to grumble again, he realised the cracker was indeed just a hollow snack. He soon turned back to the cracker giver, eyes wide, open palms extended, an enquiring look as they asked, "please sir, Can I have some more?".

    Nerds

    But seriously, I wondered the same thing.. what's wrong with "Hearthstone player" when, for example, Starcraft players are called "Starcraft player"s?

    It makes no sense to call people who play Hearthstone a specific name.

    The same way people who play World of Warcraft or any other MMO or TCG aren't given specific names.

    If you're playing Hearthstone, you're playing an in-game WoW character playing a card game in an inn.

    Therefore, the only proper name for a Hearthstone player is a metagamer.

    Wait, we give specific names depending on specific games? Does that make me a WoWer?

    I might be stupid, but I don't really understand what you're looking for. What do we call players of other games? Starcrafters? WoWers? LoLers?

    They're gamers, that's it. Or did I miss something?

    I have to say "nerd" covers it perfectly. But we're all nerds here
