Hearthstone is an upcoming free-to-play digital strategy CCG. It was announced March 22, 2013. While set in the Warcraft universe, players assume the role of a hero from Warcraft's storied history and amase a card deck to defeat other players. Hearthstone employs a different type of development team than is normally used by Blizzard. Team 5 (as they have been dubbed) is only made up of 15 developers that are "scrappy and versatile", will experiment more, and have faster development cycles. The game will also differ from other Blizzard Projects as it is their first official game to be playable on a tablet. The game is currently in beta and appears to be met very positively.

THE BETA



The beta is set to launch sometime in the summer of 2013. It is scheduled to launch in the U.S. and Blizzard hopes to launch a beta test in other region after the initial launch, but nothing specific is yet available. Players in the beta will have the ability to buy cards for real money. The purchased cards will not be transferred to the full version of the game, however the amount spent in beta will be applied to new card packs and made available to the player once the game is released. Also those who do purchase cards will receive a special gift. You can sign up for the beta here.

This was one of my questions about the game that got answered by blues and I thought I'd share. 

 

Q: So I am wondering, will games be shorter or longer on average, can players squeeze a game or two on launch / cofee break or you need to dedicate bit more time to play a game?

 

A: Yeah it's about 10-15 minutes. Depending on the classes and card pulls the game lengths can vary quite a bit. It's a good amount of time, even when I lose I'm not as angry because it's not that double-whammy of "I lost AND spent an hour doing it." :) Plus I feel like the mechanics of the game and the matchmaking make it feel satisfying. Pretty rare I feel like I was just utterly decimated, and even then the game is just fun to look at and listen to... (!)

Great post mate, have a like!

 

I am especially excited about an eSports scene surrounding this game, I used to play Yu-Gi-Oh semi competitively and I plan to play full pro (hopefully) in Hearthstone :D We'll see!

Play mode: Duel other players to increase your medal ranking—which indicates your skill level and the level of opponents you’ll face (resets weekly)—and earn new card packs along the way.

The above from the QA confuses me. Is it my ranking that resets weekly? But I guess my MMR remains? Weekly reset either way sounds a bit too frequent.

What do you guys think?

I think it'll work similar to SC2, the more and better you play you will advance through the rankings / leagues, there are several leagues for different skill levels. It resets at the end of each season possibly or week, whatever. Then you have to play placement matches to keep your rank.

There was an interview, where the blizzard dude, said that Heartstone was written with a small "s", despity the logo depicting a bit different. Thought we should change the title of the MT and the forums accordingly?


Consider Supporting Titan Focus!

 

What to play while waiting for:
World of Warcraft: Legion

Unreal Tournament 4

I agree, it seems that in all official videos it is spelt with a small s, not a capital.
