“Wild” Prediction – March Tempest Keep Expansion?

Sometimes I like to take a “Wild” guess, just in case I’m right. That way, of course I can go back and yell “IN YO FACE!” at the top of my lungs to everyone. Especially people who would have no idea what I’m talking about. Seriously, did you see what I did there?  “Wild”?  You…

Golden Heroes – a First World Problem

I just wanted to write about this phenomenon I’ve experienced in both Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm. It’s a potential issue impacting either game’s replay value. And in either case, it could use some improvement. I’m talking about Golden Heroes in Hearthstone, and also attaining level 10 on individual Heroes in HoTS. Recently, as…

The Hearthstone Deck Tracker

I’d seen it on a couple streams, heard about it on a couple podcasts, and been banned from using it by a couple Fireside tournament organizers. But up until this past week, I’d not really experienced the Hearthstone Deck Tracker add-on. I know I’m late to the party on this one, but let me give…

It’s Just a Phase – A Mulligan Discussion

And now, without further ado, I bring you the much-requested, long awaited mulligan phase breakdown! Anyone who’s played enough Hearthstone knows that the mulligan phase of a game can sometimes be the deciding factor of its entire outcome. But getting the most out of your mulligan phase can be far more complicated than you might…

Mount Up!

I recently received a very kind comment from a Lords of the Storm listener and blog-reader that goes by the name Haywire. In short, he is interested in the Hearthstone card mount in Heroes of the Storm, and curious as to how a newer player might quickly obtain it. I understand the sentiment–the card back…

Tilt-A-Whirl

I’m finally getting the opportunity to write about how the tournament went down.  To be completely honest, it didn’t go so well!  I was actually knocked out fairly early, and most of my matches seemed to either barely slip away from me, or I had trouble holding the board altogether.  Gizmozord and I met J.R….

A Well-Mannered Guide to Bad Manners

On episode 28 of Lords of the Storm this week, my buddy and cohost Gizmozord brought up something that irks him about Hearthstone. He claims that people who use the emote system sometimes frustrate him–specifically when Garrosh Hellscream does it. Apparently if you want to beat Gizmo, all you need to do is play Warrior…

Catching Up in Grandeur

The Grand Tournament expansion has a downside for many newer players, or those who haven’t followed the game for a while. It’s 132 more cards that they aren’t familiar with, which can be daunting alone. In addition, if a player is already frustrated that their card collection isn’t fleshed out enough, the infusion of new…

TGT Inspiration

This new blog segment is called “Inspiration” because it’s intended to Inspire you to reach those higher Ranked Chest rewards! Or, at the very least, cause you to think of ONE thing you hadn’t considered before. Since The Grand Tournament on August 24th comes with a lot of new material, and there’s so much of…
