The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

No, because my school's WiFi apparently doesn't play nice with streams. What the hell is it?

A digital card capture game? Ok I guess.

Free to play? hmmmm. . .

Fuck me for getting my hopes up.

yeah, I realized as I posted that the cards could also be earned, just being cynical. Also the game is free to play, so they have to make money somehow.

Was just kind of hoping for something different.

Like a simple single player RPG or other game type.

Might and Magic X was announced and got my hopes up that I might hear more good news these next couple of days. . .

This game would've been better if it was 3D-animated, like the Yu-Gi-Oh! Hologram.

Looks kinda fun actually. But I was more busy looking at all the awesome art and effects rather than follow the duel itself. And even though there was a guy explaining everything that was happening I had no idea WTF was going on.

Also, I like the implication that it's an in-universe Warcraft board game played in taverns as a pass time activity, what with the dwarf narrator and the board design and all. That's really cool.

The only thing I don't like is the heroes you play as.

I would have preferred minor characters of Warcraft universe, representing the classes. Not main characters as Thrall, Malfurion or Jaina.

But I'll still enjoy this game

Platforms look like PC/Mac and iPad. Because Kindles run a modified version of Android, it's even less likely, even if they were developing an Android version, which they mentioned nothing about.

I'll reach out to my contacts at Google.

I think this definitely looks like fun. I've been looking for a TCG to play in my free time so something like this with low barrier to entry and not focusing on a physical product sounds pretty good.

I hope there's a way to change your primary hero apart from very specific cards like Jaraxxus (Which was awesome to see, don't think anyone was expecting that) because I'm not too keen on Garrosh heading my warrior deck.

The $1 price point for a booster sounds fair but is one of those addictive prices where it's so low it's easy to justify buying in bulk and then just crafting what you were actually after anyhow.

Overall I think people were expecting more development on something we've already heard about (Allstars, Titan, etc.) and had created a perfect little image on what they wanted to see and then were disappointed when it did actually turn out to be "a little something".

As an aside, I've just realized I've been miscalling hearthstone all these years as heartstone.

Anyway as I've said in the other thread, I can't wait, this will be bloody awesome.

It would be more awesome if it could also be played through wow.

It's always difficult when people think their expectations MUST be met. Blizzard did everything to telegraph what this was without spoiling the surprise, and people ignored all the tells that it wasn't going to be something huge.

All that being said, I'm realizing it's a great announcement to throw at PAXEast. My only worry now is whether or not they'll have room at BlizzCon to have demo machines for that, the next WoW expansion, D3, AND Legacy of the Void.

Not that I'll be there, mind you. (Dammit.)

People forget its F2P so i doubt they are the only characters you can choose from.. it looks like you can buy more along with earn them just as easily.

I am pretty interested to see if there will be any connectivity between Hearthstone and WoW. I mean the inference is "this is a game you play back at the inns when you're not out questing/raiding/arena-ing" but it also seems like it'll be completely independent of WoW.

I could totally see achievements granting you new cards, though.

Anybody know who that Paladin hero is? I didn't recognize him, looks a bit like Uther though I am not 100% on that.
Also did you guys notice how the starter heroes are 4 Horde, 4 Alliance, and that BE sidekick of Varian's who kinda straddles the middle between the factions. Poor Blizzard, traumatized by bias criers has to balance everything to be perfectly equal.

Anyway Cemotucu asked if there will be more heroes other than those few we were shown initially. I think yes because I saw a gnoll hero in the demo vid.

I totally expect to see NPC's thrown in future expansions/content patches in taverns around Azeroth who can be seen playing the game as a reference to the actual thing and since the whole concept of the game is exactly this - yo're a Warcraft character who plays an in-universe board game against other Warcraft characters in a tavern with a dwarf narrator/commentator.
