You don't need a 6" device. I'm running an unofficial version some dude modified that's making the rounds on the internetz. It works fine on my GS3 and has been for the last few weeks. Use at your own risk obviously, but so far I haven't had any problems. It's laggy sometimes like I mentioned before, but it's 100% playable.
Just google "hearthstone phone apk reddit" and you'll find what you're looking for.
Pretty silly they are doing a closed beta and not going to wipe everything before the game launches. People that spent money should get their money back (in the form of gold), other than that this is just going to create a pretty big divide on launch between people who have been farming for better cards and people just starting out.
You called it. As a new player starting out with about 40 hours in, I am getting my ass handed to me. Between the lopsided & uneven matchmaking, the RNG hating your guts, and the comparatively OP decks you face, the message is loud and clear. Either come with Trump level skills, grind for a couple thousand hours to be able to build a decent deck with which you won't get immediately slaughtered after turn 6 or 7, or PAY THE FUCK UP to stop the thumping. Very off-putting in conjunction with the rampant bad sportsmanship I have witnessed.
As a new player you should be building a lot of cheap aggro decks to get your daily quests done. You can make make aggro hunter, mage, warlock, paladin pretty easy with mostly basic cards. Then play arena if you want an even playing field.
you know you can 'squelch' those emotes right?
first thing i do in a game
emote spammer = squelch and me letting my turn to take the max time to expire if I'm going to lose while I do something else on the computer
I've played well over 1000 games of HS and it is pretty rare that anyone spams emotes. Are you playing a Murloc deck or something? That is just asking for it
No, I was just playing a basic mage or paladin/druid deck that you earn off F2P. Still, obnoxious when you already know you're most likely to lose at the end of the game due to stacked matchmaking against OP decks
If it's a close game but I know I'll be winning next turn, I usually do 2-3 Well Played emotes, but not because I'm rubbing it in. I'm doing it because it was honestly a good game.
No matter how well you think the game went, the opponent sees it as you rubbing it in. Especially if you do it three times. And even more bad manners if you do it a full turn before you win.
Pick one of the three if you want to advance. I haven't spent more than a few $ for Naxx, however I have a bunch of Legendary cards, and enough Rare/Epics cards to make a lot of the meta decks just from doing the daily quests and Arena for packs and gold. Just by doing the dailies, you can earn almost 20 packs a month. Get all classes to level 10 and look around for free deck guides. Spending money on Naxx would help a lot as well, and the content is pretty fun.
I really wish there was either a chat or a few more emotes. I totally get why they didnt implement a chat system though.
Yea I would interpret 3 Well Played on my turn as someone rubbing it in. Do it once on your turn right before you play your cards to win. Anything more is excessive and being a dick, if a bit of a passive aggressive dick.
If it's a close game but I know I'll be winning next turn, I usually do 2-3 Well Played emotes, but not because I'm rubbing it in. I'm doing it because it was honestly a good game. That seems to be the only way to get the point across since there is no chat. I don't find that annoying either. I have yet to come across someone who is retarded with it.
yeah, you'd get squelched. I never emote well played to anyone right before I finish them off. That's just being a passive aggressive dick.
I use it when someone pulls something off I wasn't expecting or a great combo and after the game ends.
I like to emote "Sorry that happened." when someone says "Well played." before they put down the cards that are going to win them the game. That's when I'm playing as a warrior. I never respond at all to Face Hunters. They're the new Zoo... lowest of the low.
By face hunter you mean like a spell hunter?
what's zoo mean? The terminology for this game that people have come up with is so fuckin weird lol
Xixo Warlock if what people should be running if you just want to smash people in a hurry. It has similarities with Zoo, however it has Implosion and a Sea Giant for finishers:
So, I just started playing Hearthstone yesterday.
Any/all suggestions welcome to speed up the grind process.
There are many more ways to get free/easy gold. Can't tell if you know about them based on your reply. Here they are:
