(Hearthstone is a new CCG game from Blizzard, the guys that brought us World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo.)
I quickly settle in and begin to learn the Mage class. The Mage is the class everyone has unlocked when they start the game for the first time. I am playing the AI as I start to get the feel for the game, cards, flow.
As I continue to beat up the computers AI I start to level up the character I am playing to level 10 (you will unlock a series of Basic cards the relate to that class, Mage in this case, as you level).
All this winning against a poor AI has me again feeling like a giant among boys. It's time to mash the play button and find that poor player that shall feel my wraith.
WAIT, what's this? Arena?
What's this? This area costs either real world cash or ingame gold to play. I am quickly informed you that I am welcome here the first time for free, but from then all shall pay.
