Anyone here playing this game? I think it's fun. Runs great on OS X like all blizzard games. Also it's free. There is no need to spend money on the cards unlike unlike other blizzard games.
I have been playing it a lot. I really enjoy it. I used to play collectible card games in real life, so being able to play this one online is very appealing to me. I also like that you can play for free if you're ok with not having all the cards.
I'm currently quite enjoying it, but can't help to feel that it misses the intricacies of more traditional CCGs. The different classes surely allow for some variation, but within each class, there don't seem to be that many different strategies viable. So, in it's current form, I think it will be exhausted after a while. I'd guess Blizzard would add some new content in the future allowing for more variation, though.
I agree, some cards are practically useless because they do not have the right cards to couple with. I want to see every card being used.
Yep, currently in casual play, you often end up fighting people with legendary decks. It's supposed to be matched play.
People may just be experiencing a bad connection. It has happened to me a couple of times. Sadly there's not way of telling it from bad manners.A strategy I've found that others use a lot, especially in the arena, is to let their game timer run out all the way. It's annoying and I hate it. If someone plays that way, I'll just do the same in hopes that they decide to play right instead of trying to get you to concede because they're being dicks. There needs to be a way to stop this some how. If you haven't got the gist already, it's frustrating.
It's actually beneficial to go second as you get an extra card and the coin which gives you 2 gems on the first turn. I think this is too much of an advantage as if you do first, you generally end up not playing anything, get one less card, and are essentially a turn behind.
