Diablo® III

Hearthstone Beta

While waiting for RoS is anyone testing out Hearthstone? I haven't played card based games much before but I stumbled onto the Blizzard invitational final Kripp v Artois you tube and it got me intrigued.

Unfortunately, I haven't been blessed by the RNG Beta key gods as yet but, hopefully open beta isn't far away.

I'd be interested to hear what some Aussie players think of it.

Are there any 'equivalent type' games around. I have seen a Magic the Gathering 2014 demo... but it seemed a little uninspiring (in the demo at least).

Thanks in advance and see you in RoS.

WARNING!!! Hearthstone is addictive. ;)

I play it when catching up on forums/twitter/emails(yes I'm playing it right now) and love it. It's the perfect game to go along with something else, I'm sure some people could play it as there 'main game' but I think it's great to go along with other games.

Blizzard did well in making it casual fun but really addictive as well but it can be competitive if you want it to. I'm rank 16 atm and only spent $3 to get the beta card so really don't need to spend money on it.

Highly recommend trying it. As you said it should be in open beta very soon(tm), make sure you have ticked the box for it in your beta profile if you want to try it though! Lots of keys going out.

Hi Nurull,

Thanks for the reply. I have had the beta ticked for a while now (a month or so). Haven't been too worried about not getting a key, as I have had plenty of work to do, and as you mention, it does look a little addictive.

Hopefully open beta happens before Christmas or they send out a lot more keys as I'll have some spare time.

I think the initial simplicity with the underlying complexity is what appeals to me. A guy at work received a beta key and he really liked it.

I have done a bit more searching and there doesn't appear to be much in that game genre so I guess I'll just wait it out.

Thanks for the info about RoS in your other posts. Do you think they added enough that so you don't get the 'been there done that' feeling after a little while? [ I'm hijacking my own thread :) ]

Hi Wazz,

The key must have had an error as it didn't accept it.

If it is easier to sen via email then my email is BoomstikDiablo@gmail.com

Edit:
I think it might have been missing 1 digit... the codes are 25 characters and that one had 6x4=24 :)

Hey guys,

I just received a hearthstone beta key last night. First one ever. I thought it was spam/scam at first but it was legit.

If you get the email from blizz with beta key you will need to download the battle.net desktop app (if you have not done so already) So far played 3 games and very fun :)

Yeah, I snuck in 4 games before work ... Nurull was right about it being addictive :)

Looking forward to spending a few hours on it tonight once the kids have gone to bed.
