I lost interest in Blizzard’s Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft a long time ago. It’s not because the game is terrible, not by any means. It’s because I am horrendous at it. I can’t even begin to count the number of times a plethora of swear words has left my mouth when one of my high level cards got turned into a fuzzy little sheep at the hand of that goddamned Mage. It’s just one of the few things that put me off. For those of you who have endured the hardships of the game, and unlike me, have actually taken the time to construct solid decks and learn different strategies, I hope you’re ready for more punishment… I mean fun. The Goblins Vs Gnomes expansion is out today!
Here’s what you can expect (via Battle.net)
A slew of mechanized minions have taken over the battlefield with Hearthstone’s first expansion pack: Goblins vs Gnomes! Catch all of the unpredictable action between the cunning, explosive-loving goblins and the contemplative ever-tinkering gnomes by adding over 120 all-new Hearthstone cards to your collection. Explore new class-specific cards, recruit Legendary minions, and power up your forces with the new minion type: Mechs.
120 cards? My poor brain couldn’t even handle the core Hearthstone card package. It’s good news for fans though, injecting some extra life into the insanely popular card game. You can jump start your new collection right away just by logging in.
All players who log in to Hearthstone from now until December 19 will immediately receive three free Goblins vs Gnomes card packs! Whether you’re logging in and playing from your PC, Mac, or iPad, everyone will be able to share in the excitement. Don’t miss out—the fuse has been lit on this limited time celebration!
From what I have read, the update has had its fair share of problems – the arena and store are unavailable for example. That should be ironed out soon hopefully.
Are you a big Hearthstone fan? Are you excited for this expansion? Feel free to let me know how noob you think I am in the comments!
