I cleaned today, I'm very proud of myself. It was the microwave-the bane of every kitchen chore. I did it in my slug shirt so that made things better.
I play Hearthstone and World Of Warcraft quite consistently (WOW until I ran out of stuff to do, now I'm just grinding gold at my garrison with followers until my prepaid time runs out). I just started Hearthstone in the fall - while I've been playing WOW off and on since 2009 (I actually tried it when the game first came out and was lost-so I quit). My main was a a gnome affliction warlock named Gidgett until they super nerfed the class into oblivion (I think it had a lot to do with PVP - as it always does). Now I play a human arcane mage named Liet so that I can casually raid when I want to. I use all of this jargon and meandering to prove a point-I know what I'm doing in WOW. I am literally falling all over myself trying to get past level 20 in Hearthstone. It's a hot mess of a learning curve with either game, and if you don't have help or haven't played either type of game before you'll probably give up pretty quickly.
Blizzard just announced they are changing the formatting of the game (Hearthstone), along with giving us little perks-like a new expansion, more slots for decks, and two different styles of play for starters to help soften the learning curve (and put more change in their pocket before they trash old content). Yeeeeaaah. So I just started -and then I have to start again - when all of this kicks in. I'm in the middle content wise-I don't have enough cards to make a significant enough difference in "Wild" play and I have been hording GVG packs before they ditch them - so I don't have enough of the more current decks to make play in "Standard" realistic. It sucks.
If someone is looking for something to do though, these are great games and they really don't cost that much if you know how to do it. WOW always has specials regarding their expansions-and you can play until level 20 for free to figure out if you like it or not. Also, Hearthstone is 100% free if we are talking about money. Emotionally and time wise not so much. Patience is key and if you don't have that, you're going to fail, hard.
I included some articles below that are current and, I thought, helpful or funny.
