Crashing ruins gameplay
This review isn't here to discuss the actual game itself, because it's a great game. The problem is the frequent crashing that occurs at least once a game (at the game end screen, during silence effects, most unique entrances and animations on epics/legendaries, when trying to play any more than around 6 or 7 cards a turn, starting your turn after your opponent makes a lot of actions, etc.), and the bugginess that is trying to get back into a game. The main problem here is that you can miss 5 or more turns while connected to the server, because the game is desperately trying to catch you up to the current board state while skipping over your 15 second turns while you can't play any cards. Quite literally, you're sitting there watching yourself lose the game while you're connected to it but can't do anything. I'm not sure exactly how this problem would be fixed (besides removing the automatic turn shortening that occurs after a missed turn, which would be kind of stupid for PC), but it basically completely keeps players from arena and the constructed ladder on mobile. I'm not sure if this same issue occurs on tablets, as that version is basically an identical copy of the PC game, but it certainly is a huge issue on mobile.
Hearthstone has been inexcusably buggy and unbalanced for a ridicously long time. It's a soft pay to win game that can also be done playing for free. However, the amount of time that it takes to gather the money ludicrous. Earning up to $.60 cents of in-game currency per day makes purchasing a single wing an enormous commitment. What has really compelled me to write this review is he horrid reconnect ability in the game. Losing signal for just a few seconds will permanently lock you out of your game, and after you exit and re-enter the game, it has been forfeited. Playing ranked games do this in particular, around rank 20. Dr. Balanced has never been fixed, old cards are never updated to current meta standards, and the cycle of buying the newest pack to win is the key to success (after you're a competent player, of course). Discover is an absurd card power, and the newest expansion is the most powerful one yet.
Two stars because while it is a horribly managed game, it is fun. But don't think you can find counters to rush decks that can crush you on turn 5, or secret pally, entomb priest, stall & control Mage/warrior, Grim Patron, mech-decks, and Druids with a turn 2 legendary.
Seriously one of the best games I have played hands down don't listen to people saying you have to buy packs with money I am good at the game and used maybe 7 dollars because I had nothing else to use it for it's fun but takes time and practice and I like the challenges it strives you to get better to beat the other person/ai in single player and the challenges are fair you just have to learn strategies for cards to fit with the class can't wait for next big update for how the announcement looked.
From a person who actually took his time in this game to find good combo's
Oh and Jesse the Greater your just a idiot because how does this have anything to do with mine craft and I know 30 year olds who play this so yeah I just denounced your insult and your just a complainer because you are a little brat who complains because they are bad at the game or doesn't have a good enough phone,computer, or tablet.
Update needs longer time limit I was gone for not even a minute and I lost a turn and ended up losing thanks to it.
Back with another update people have been saying its unbalanced I say those people haven't gotten a good deck strategy and I have no problem unlocking wings oh and if your decks don't work good use the standard decks those are not bad just be cautious against shamans because I have seen lots of swift death murloc decks I also have never crashed just had to do something in a middle of matches before.
