Get ready for tribes of monsters in Duelyst with Ancient Bonds expansion

Duelyst just keeps giving, with its third expansion just launching, called Ancient Bonds. It is all about the tribes and unlike that TV show where the tribe speaks, this time the tribe kills, maims or makes you hit that concede button. A new keyword, Bond, triggers when minions of the same tribe are placed on the board. This means deck-builders will be able to try build decks around this keyword, ...

The Hearthstone Arena is going to see some much needed changes

As Hearthstone’s pool of cards increases it becomes a bit of a problem for the eternal formats. We can understand that the Wild format will have a smorgasbord of potential decks with some things being quite ridiculous, but that can be a problem for a drafting format. Not all cards are created equal so when you continue adding ‘bad’ cards to the drafting pool you’re going to...

Unlocking the next Hearthstone hero needs new blood or a dummy account

I have a love/ hate relationship with Hearthstone. I love the card game because I can hop on for a few minutes and play a game. It is great for those awkward waits in places with good signal but not much to do or while you wait for people who went AFK before your next round of whatever other game you are playing. I hate it because of all the time I waste with people playing to the timer every roun...

Oh hey, Runescape Legends is coming out on 26 May

If you haven’t tried it there is still time to test out the beta and if you do so before May 15th you will get a few free card packs. We all know how good free card packs are, right? The game is more ab...

Want to try Hearthstone but the idea of building a deck has you down? Say hello to Deck Recipes

Not everyone is a deck builder by nature. Some people just see card synergies or inherent value in cards, like how difficult it is to get rid of a card’s effect or a card’s flexibility versus various archetypes. Some players just read that previous sentence and went “huh?” “what?”. For you, my friends, there is hope. Deck Recipes are being added to the game to h...

Opinion: What standard means for Hearthstone, as an old Magic player

Blizzard has announced a few changes coming to Hearthstone, mostly new formats to play the game in. The format is called Standard, which lets you play with basic and classic cards and the last two year’s worth of cards. This means that there is a smaller subset of the total cards being played in Standard, meaning the metagame is set to shift around a bit more often in this format. The Standa...

Hearthstone makes $20 million a month

Superdata, a US research firm, says Blizzard’s Hearthstone rakes in some $20 million per month, which pushes digital card purchases just ahead of digital hat purchases in Dota 2. The digital firm compares Hearthstone’s success to that of World of Warcraft. [quote]”Blizzard’s first digital card game has deep mechanics, but it is more accessible and streamlined than long-running ga...
