BlizzPro's Hearthstone

 

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft has a new community manager in the ranks to join replace CM Phenteo (who is going back to cover all Blizzard games) and it’s a familiar face not only in the Blizzard community but also the trading card community. We would like to welcome Christina Sims (award winning BlizzCon cosplayer and now former Brand Ambassador at Cryptozoic), now known as CM Zeriyah, as the newest member of the Blizzard community team for the game Hearthstone. Some of you will recognize Christina from several different BlizzCon costume contests, but her most famous is BlizzCon 2010 when she won first place with her Diablo III female monk costume. Early 2012 Christina joined the Cryptozoic team as their Brand Ambassador and as of this week she now joins the Blizzard community team. Christina has been a good friend of ours over the years and we’re very excited to see ...

The Hearthstone team at Blizzard put together a pretty fun event this week on Twitch.TV. In the past they have released some videos of what they are calling Fireside Duels which have just shown some game play with Ben Brode shout-casting the matches. In the past we’ve seen such deck match ups as Paladin Vs. Warrior, Mage Vs. Shaman, and Warlock Vs. Druid. This time however, the matches were live streamed on Twitch.TV with Ben Brode playing while Eric Dodds watches on and helps provide commentary on what plays they should made in the situation of the game they are in. The entire live stream lasted about an hour and can be watched in it’s entirety here:  http://www.twitch.tv/playhearthstone There were 4 different match ups played during the live stream and we have all of the game play currently up on Youtube for your viewing pleasure. The first matchup pinned the Priest deck against the Druid deck and this was ...

 

Hearthstone PAX East Recap Video

by JR Cook on

PAX East 2013 has long gone at this point but the Hearthstone team has put together a nice little recap video going over the announcement of the game at the event. If you were at PAX East you might be able to see yourself there. Can we have beta yet?...

 

This week the Hearthstone team revealed a new card for you Warlock fans out there. The Void Terror has battlecry and a nasty little ability that states “Destroy the minions on either side of this minion and gain their attack and health”. So let’s say you have a couple minions out there on the field – a 2/3 and a 3/4. You place Void Terror in between them.  Void Terror by itself is a 3/3… but now it destroys the other 2 minions and gains their attack and health and you suddently have a 8/10 minion on the field. The combo they show off with this is really slick, too. You can use the card Power Overwhelming to give an existing minion +4/+4 but the minion dies at the end of the turn. So let’s play that on your minion, attack with the minion – and since the minion is ...

LEEEEEEEEEEEROOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYYYYYYYY JEEEEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIIIIIIINS That will be my battle cry in Hearthstone every time I play this card. The Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft team has released a new Fireside Duels video which features the Warrior Garrosh Hellscream vs. the Paladin Uther the Lightbringer. These are both classes in the game we have not seen yet in the past Fireside Duels. The Paladin has the ability to summon reinforcements in the form of a 1/1 soldier, while the Warrior is able to bolster his defenses by donning two damage points worth of armor. Also this Fireside Duel highlights some new, never before seen, cards such as Cairne Bloodhoof (who summons Baine Bloodhoof upon death), Illidan Stormrage, King Mulka, and of course Leeroy Jenkins. You can watch the full Fireside Duel shout casted by developer Ben Brode below. Past Fireside Duels – Shaman vs. Mage: Warlock vs. Druid...

The Hearthstone team has put out a new Fireside Duel – this time in the form of Jaina vs. Thrall (mage deck vs. shaman deck). Some interesting points in this game – this is the first time we see how the secret cards work. Basically you play them, they cost mana, your opponent sees you have played something but it’s unknown to them what you played. When your opponent does something to trigger the secret card then it activates and says what it does. In the case of this game the card was activated when the opponent attacked with their minion and the effect in place was the player who played the secret got a copy of the minion card that attacked. The shaman deck in this case looks seriously fun to play (if not a bit overpowered) as the random totem ability and his wolf cards are really good. ...
