Play to Win – Part 3

So decided to grind out levels and quest rewards before the new expansion hit. Opening the packs I got as rewards yielded me a Mountain Giant so taking everything I had from the old Aggro Paladin (see here) I decided to make a old school classic – Zoolock

Cause… why not. I know it, and quick games might shock and awe me some wins.

The great austerity (card) game – Part 9 / Play to Win – Part 1

So it’s been a while, I’ll write a separate blog post to keep you updated on life, I’ve not played too much in the gaming world let alone the F2P experiment I started back in 2015.

So with some new found drive and time recently, I thought I’d crank out this project again. It helps me relax, game and hell … Two years on the question is still as important!

So it’s been awhile, sorry about that!

tgtMuch to update you on, so will start babbling and see how long this blog post gets.

Hearthstone – My little digital debate

For anyone who cares I used to love paper CCG’s, Magic or Yo-gi-oh, but spent a large portion of my time playing a WWE CCG called RawDeal. It was fun, nerdy and actually VERY well supported by the WWE – so winners got to meet superstars, have replica-belts etc etc.

Then it got cancelled – Sad times.

So why Hearthstone over games like Magic?
The answer for me is pretty simple – Its digital.

Digital cards are the future. It will stay interactive, flexible and in Hearthstones case very very mobile. Shall i continue?

The great austerity (card) game – Part 5

So its been pack opening day!

I’ll admit I was thinking about recording it, but with Hearthstone being so far into its life, a youtube movie of someone opening 20 packs didnt seem like a massive milestone for the game…

Infact, I wish I had recorded it…

The great austerity (card) game – Part 4

So its been a while since I updated this ‘project’. Mostly because I’ve had no major updates, and mostly because its just been fun (also very frustrating) grinding out the quests and bouncing up and down the rankings.
