Hearthstone is amazing. No-one should ever insult it.
My team which I beat it with, may not be the most optional, but I am sure people would like to know you can win this with a different setup:
Giant Bone Spider
Personal World Destroyer
Grass safari with: Ivysaur - Pansage - ???
If YOU have fun with it and everything, that's cool, go for it. Also to reply to the other guy- it's free and everything, sure. But that doesn't mean it's devoid of critique.
I have nothing outwardly wrong with it, especially because I'm never going to play it or anything, but I'd have much preferred it if it were more original in design and not just Magic the Gathering's version of Looking for Raid.
I never played the WoW TCG, and I highly doubt I'll ever get back into them again (since more or less all of them turn out to end up horribly balanced with lots of pre-conceived decks that are broken and stupid that everyone runs because this is the age of 'just look up what the best cookie cutter is on the internet'.) but a Warcraft cardgame that I didn't have to pay money for and try to find people irl who also play it could have caught my attention it was more original.
Though as a whole I think card games work better when you're younger and no one has any concept of "bullshit meta build" or buying specific cards off of the internet or any of that, and it's more about just wandering around playing against people who build their decks the way you did: just buying card packs and trading and collecting.
1. How is it a rip off of MTG ? It's something similiar to me saying "My name is John and nobody else can be named John anymore."
MTG isn't the only card game out there. It isn't even the first! There are MANY MANY MORE card games out there and that is a GENRE of games. Not a name of 1 single game. Just because it is categorized in the same genre doesn't make it a rip off.
2. Also WoW TCG is based on the game's lore and WoW's lore is based on Warcraft's lore so a Warcraft TCG would be the exact same as WoW TCG.
3. In order to return to something you need to visit it first. If you have never played it you cannot "return" to it. ( Though you shouldn't be commenting it either but whatever )
Anyway, if you want to continue this arguement, make your own thread. This is my thread about WoW Pet Battles.
I understand MTG isn't the only/the first card game, but that doesn't magically just mean "Oh, Hearthstone isn't ripping it off!"
Take three minutes to look at Magic the Gathering and compare it to Hearthstone. They're very similar in playstyle and design. If Hearthstone was a rip-off of Yu-gi-oh, I'd call it a shallow rip-off of Yu-gi-oh. Or if it was a rip-off of the Pokemon TCG, I'd call it that. I'm not saying it ripped off Magic the Gathering just because it's a card game.
Also, when I said "Warcraft TCG", that's what I meant. A WoW trading card game like Hearthstone that is played over the internet and not in real life.
Also also, when I said "I doubt I'll ever play them again", by "them" I referred to Cardgames in general, not the Warcraft TCG.
Also also also, I understand I'm a bit off topic but I was only responding to some other people. At any rate, it's not like a bit of slightly off topic discussion does anything to negatively impact a thread outside of "baww dis is of topic derail :^(".
Wasn't inferring you weren't used to card games. Was just mentioning as a general observation and from the view of myself, being I am not a TCG player.
I just did the tournament!!! Finally, on my first try today, but with like 40 pets dead...
So heres my setup for celestial pets since the tamers are easy
Xuen - Darkmoon zepelin ( for explode and decoy ) and Darkmoon tonk for high dmg , i killed it with those 2 , get in another mechanical if you have problems
Zao - Pandaren water spirit use Geyser and whirlpool then swap to zandalari anklerender and use black claw then hunting party - this one also died with 2 pets, get another zandalari in if you have problems
Yu'la - After like 9 teams wipped off by this pet I soloed it with Clock'em - dodge lines up with lift off , and jab does all the dmg needed . Get some humanoids in if you have problems , maybe anubisath
Chi-Chi - I had most problems on this, like 5 teams wipped off by her... but a post here helped a lot to use criters , I started with Nexus Whelpling for Wild magic , make sure you apply it before you die so the criterrs have it. You can use any critter pet you have with stampede take the ones with most attack.

I'm having trouble entering the tournament. The quest NPC, Master Li or whatever his name was, won't let me queue for it. The only option I get is accessing the shop and asking him what I need to enter the tournament. He tells me I need 15 level 25 pets, while I've got 18 already. Do bought pets not count or something?
Maybe you were able to enter the tournament on the PTR since the game tracks how many pets you have leveled up, and that statistics followed your char to the PTR? IDK, but in my head it sounds reasonable.
Either that or it's just bugged and will get fixed later on.
I finally beat this shit after about 4+ hours amgerd.
