Hearthstone: Heroes Of Warcraft Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Useless Gamers has posted a new preview of Blizzard Enterainment's upcoming Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Planned for release on Mac, Windows, and iPad, the free-to-play virtual card game will allow players to build decks centered around one of the nine Warcraft character classes. Duelists will go head to head in card battles for the chance to win new cards.

The game play itself is like a return to the fluidity of early Magic: The Gathering. The set is small enough that you can quickly learn the cards you need to know, yet diverse enough to have lots of meta strategy to keep the game interesting. The constructed side has already seen many changes in its meta game, and the Arena adds a delicious level of variety and ingenuity into cards that otherwise would rarely see the light of day in constructed. All of this is especially true as Blizzard continues to tweaks the cards, and this is another area where Hearthstone and the DCCG format really shines. Unlike physical CCGs, DCCGs can immediately alter the damage/health stats, mana costs, and even special abilities of every card at once.

The games themselves are fast paced, tactical, strategic, and most of all amazingly fun. The fixed pace of one additional mana crystal a turn resolves the issue of being mana screwed. The small 30 card deck with a max of two of any specific card provides enough reliability that your deck will generally function how it is supposed to. Yet it also has enough flexibility that your deck will still surprise you.
