The game is fine, if a little overrated. But I have some ideas that works le make the game worthy of 5 stars (you are so close). 1st, why don’t you tell us when the game is not updating. I have not logged in yet when I was not told that the game is updating and their might be trouble signing in. So, go the other way, we, as players, agree you are trying to update whatever you are constantly working on, and that there will be sign in problems because of it, and you don’t have to tell us there are constant issues with your game. And before you blame the customer, I am not the only one that has this issue. #2 this one is way more important, have you ever been working on a project for 20 minutes, then you get a phone call, and your computer erases all of your work, losing 20 minutes, or possibly more work. You would probably consider that frustrating, right? Well that is what happens every time I get a call while playing this game. If you go immediately back after you have yelled at some random family member that you have to call them back and bam, “sorry could not reconnect” and then The Blizzard logo, like the game wants to remind you who can’t seem to figure out how to save a game for 45 seconds. Anyway, fixing that would be great for the 5th star, but it seems more like you are content with a low or mid 4.
The game overall is fun, I would give it 5 stars. However, the first time I downloaded it it wouldn’t let me make an account, which is needed to play with friends and save my progress. When I finished filling out the account creation form, it asked for a security input, which I assume is one of those ‘I’m not a robot’ pictures where you type in what it says. I was unable to do this security input because it wouldn’t load the picture so I couldn’t see what it was. If you’re under 18 there is no security input, so I set it to my actual birthday hoping to go through a parent email to get my account activated. When I tried to do this, however, a dark red rectangle with an x in the upper left corner appeared when I clicked ‘create account’. I assume this box is meant to tell you what’s wrong, but nothing was wrong and the box was blank. I had filled out all the fields correctly. After this, I decided the game was taking up too much space on my phone, so I deleted it planning to reinstall it once I freed up some space. After I had more space, 2.8 GB to be exact, I redownloaded the game. After I downloaded it, I had 1.3 GB left on my phone, which shouldn’t be an issue for anything. When I opened the game, it said ‘Failed to get update. Please check your network connection.’ My WiFi works perfectly fine for everything else, so this should not be an issue. The game fully downloaded all 1.5 GB so I don’t understand why it doesn’t work. Please fix this.
Blizzard has built a beautiful game, the production value is abnormally high for a mobile game. The game has good mechanics, and a reasonable approach to “free to play” IMHO. The paywall basically boils down to: you need to choose your engagement/investment level. If you want to play for free and slowly build your collection, you can do that... but, you probably won’t be playing any super competitive decks with all the power cards for at least your first year, and will always make come budget compromises. If you want to fast-track into highly competitive play and run all the best cards, there is always $$$. Blizzard actually improved the F2P experience in a recent update by raising the baseline gold offered by all daily quests while also lowering their completion requirements. It’s now easier and more rewarding to complete daily quests. Personally, I take a mixed approach and set a budget of what I’m willing to spend on the game in a year and buy cards selectively at new set releases, then otherwise just operate using quest gold. Pick how you want to play, just please don’t complain about the paywall. There are no “surprises”: you choose when and how much money you want to spend. If you want all the best cards, don’t want to save for them and don’t want to pay for them, then this probably isn’t the game for you.
I have spent 100+ hours in this game and have played it semi-steadily since its initial release. It’s a great game that has evolved intelligently over the years. It is definitely not a pay-to-play game. It’s true, you do have a choice to pay for card packs and extras, but win rate is not effected at all by a players readiness to drop money into the game. It’s this aspect (among many others) of the game that reflects favorably upon the developer’s good choices during game development. There are many resources in game and online to help new players craft top tier decks that have high win-rates in ranked play. Many of these decks use simple card choices and strategies. However, don’t be fooled by my use of the word “simple.” It’s a very challenging game and will test your strategy and tactical skills. You will suffer some frustrating losses, but these should not reflect badly on the exceptional development team blizzard chose for this wonderful game. All losses challenge your skill to adapt decks that can be used semi-consistently agains all heros, decks, and strategies. All losses are learning experiences rather than testaments to the game’s apparent imbalance. I probably should have given this game a 4.5, or perhaps even something close to a five, but no game is perfect or without flaws. However, this game is very possibly the closest a mobile-friendly game has ever come to being “perfect.”
Let me just start out by saying that I love this game! The graphics, gameplay, and effort put into this game is amazing! But I feel like Blizzard has failed to acknowledge its F2P or people who spend little money as Hearthstone gets older and older. I have played Hearthstone off and on for about two years, with playing much more this year. Over that time, I accrued about 7500 dust without spending a single dime on the game. Earlier this week, I thought, “Maybe I can actually craft a standard viable deck now.” Yesterday, I watched one of Kripparian’s videos to see what the best decks were, and I then crafted Odd Paladin, using 5000 of that 7500 dust. Five hours later, Blizzard nerfs one of Odd Paladin’s cards out of the blue. Now, Odd paladin might not be standard playable. 5000 dust down the drain like that. 2 years of work gone. Blizzard needs to make this nerfing system better. Either tell us more in advance or give us more dust back. I just wasted a year of hardcore playing because of these nerfs. Although, I know I was being dumb and that this is only one example, which does not matter in the grand scheme of things, but I am sure there are quite a bit of people who got screwed over by these nerfs as well. If you’re looking to become good at Hearthstone without paying, just remember that Blizzard can screw your progress at any point.
