It’s finally fall, and as if there weren’t already enough games coming out to play, there’s plenty of big things going on in competitive gaming to watch. This weekend, Europe will crown a Hearthstone champion to send to BlizzCon later this season, and a slew of Chinese Dota 2 teams will compete to see who gets to farm…
It feels like only yesterday I was sitting down to embark on Hearthstone’s latest adventure, One Night in Karazhan. Just over a month later and the scene is completely lit. Blizzard announced it would remove 45 cards from the game’s arena mode to try and restore some semblance of balance to the otherwise rigged…
The latest update to Blizzard’s Battle.net launcher allows players to stream games like Overwatch, Hearthstone and World of Warcraft directly to Facebook.
Update—10:40 a.m.: With grace, felicity and no pity for this post’s short-lived relevance, Blizzard resolved their server issues ten minutes post-publication. Read below for background on today’s now-fixed DDoS attack against Battle.net.
One Night in Karazhan is the latest expansion to Hearthstone, adding a slew of new cards and a frantic single player adventure. It’s as good a reason as any to jump into the game after a long break, which is exactly what I did. Can my rusty skills defeat Prince Malchezaar? Watch above to find out!
Priests are a little underpowered in Hearthstone right now, and have been for a while. So it’s no surprise that fans got a little mad when Blizzard showed off Purify, a terrible new card that will be added to the game tomorrow with the adventure pack One Night in Karazhan.
To be fair, it’s a pretty big twist. While The Elder Scrolls Legends beta has a whole lot of Hearthstone going on, it’s going on in two lanes at once, which is actually pretty cool.
Late last night Blizzard revealed the newest Hearthstone adventure pack: One Night in Karazhan. It’s... well... it’s basically a dance party.
Is Yogg-Saron broken? Hearthstone’s most ridiculous new card is reigniting debates over one of the game’s core principles and a tenet that Blizzard has stood by for years now: RNG.
During the recent Dreamhack Austin event, Hearthstone pro Terrence “TerrenceM” Miller came in second. It was quite a moment, a breakout performance for a relative unknown. And while many viewers were impressed, others in the thousands-strong Twitch chat refused to stop pointing out the obvious: Miller is black. You…
A Hearthstone match between Rexxar and Thrall would be a bit more intense on an open field with living, breathing creatures. Also the game mechanics would ruin everything.
Druid combos will be a little less powerful in Hearthstone pretty soon, as Blizzard prepares to nerf a number of classic cards alongside the newest expansion.
This week’s shining example of Cross-Brand Synergy Optimization comes via Blizzard, who announced yesterday that the new Hearthstone hero Liadrin will only be obtainable if you have a World of Warcraft character.
William “Amnesiac” Barton managed to battle back from near-elimination in the 2016 Hearthstone Americas Winter Championship to win the whole tournament on Sunday evening with a 3-1 finals victory over Nostam.
The next Hearthstone expansion is called Whispers of the Old Gods, Blizzard said today. This new add-on for the addictive digital card game will add 134 more cards to Hearthstone, all of them themed around the old gods of Warcraft lore. It’ll be out in April or May.
Porting a fan-made version of Hearthstone, such as Roflstone’s, to phones and tablets would be quite difficult. It’s a demake of Blizzard’s trading card game, mostly inspired by the classic Pokémon TCG on the Game Boy Color.
For most players handling one high-ranked StarCraft match would be hard enough, but StarCraft II veteran CranK managed to do all this while constantly alt-tabbing to Hearthstone.
Blizzard is overhauling some core features of Hearthstone, adding a new format to their addictive digital card game and, perhaps most importantly, giving players more deck slots.
