Hearthstone Beta

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a question.

Is anyone in the beta who can give me their thoughts on the game? Specifically how is the business model and do you get fair value for how much money you shell out.

er im confused what you mean by "model"

its an online TCG so basically you pay for "packs" and get cards. its more free then magic because you get i believe "starter decks" and then can earn cards but at the end of the day buying packs = more chances to get good cards

currently you just recieve beta randomly (or prominent streamer) with your beta testing reqs on your battle.net acc

How much are packs? Do you get discount the more packs you buy? Can you buy individual cards? Is there anything else to buy such as different game boards? Stuff of that nature. Thats what I meant. Sorry if I was not more specific.

Being my very first TCG ever I am finding this game extremely fun. I'm a huge card player aside from TCG's and a huge gamer. Personally I feel as though I get a good value for the money I have shelled out although I am a bit disappointed in the discounts for buying a larger package. If you buy 2 packs they are $1.50 each but if you buy 40 pack bundle they are only $1.25

Packs can be purchased in these denominations: 1 pack(100 in game gold), 2 packs($2.99), 7 packs($9.99), 15 packs(19.99), 40 packs($49.99). In game gold can be earned by completing daily quests and simply by winning games ex. todays quest is to win 2 games with priest which will net 40 gold. There are 5 cards in a pack. You cannot buy individual cards but you can disenchant cards for arcane dust which is then used to craft new cards.

Hope this helps. smile.gif

I wouldn't waste any money I swear it's been hacked, arena mode has anyway.

Happened twice to me today. I am playing, think I am about to win, and bam the other dude pops out 3 epic Giants.

Happened this afternoon and again this evening. Before it was back to back molten giants, and tonight it was two sea giants and one molten all played back to back.

http://puu.sh/6oHOB.jpg here is the screenshot I took.


I rarely even get 1 epic and it usually doesn't even help my deck strategy - how are these guys getting 2 or 3 and all giants?
