    One proposed change is giving every attack a fifty percent chance to hit.
    I don’t like this. Blizzard needs to give me the option to buy a better chance to hit. I would pay at least $15 for a one day boost.

  2. How can you tell if the game has been won by complete chance, though? Please share you complex analysis algorithm with us, Jack, so I can plagiarize it for my CS PhD,

    Having played Hearthstone, I can say one thing:

    I KNEW it!

    This game is shit, they need to fix it if its ever to come out of beta .. yeah 50% chance of winning if you are intelligent? So a new player coming in playing people with better cards paid cards, etc have a 50% chance of winning? The writer had a 50% chance of being intelligent with this article and he failed.

    If you aren’t praying to the RNGods while you play, you’re doing it wrong.

    This reminds of an article I read a couple years ago saying that 90% of all Magic The Gathering games were won through luck. I wonder where that 5% difference is from.

      like for poker there will be always player saying is 95% luck i wonder why is always the same player at the top most be the luckiest people in the world.
      Of course there is luck involved but so is poker and even a 10% edge is enought to be a winner at long run people like him who think is so much about luck just lack of skill or just don`t want to improve them play im an infinite player on arena so i must be crazy lucky then same for trump a famous layer wich is an infinite player arena so WTF how he manage to have an average of 7 win in arena if is 95% luck and if got 7 average win over thousands games so yeah jack keep saying yourself is a pure luck game it mean i will most likelly crush you if i face you one day

    Win ratios are fixed. You win too many, get ready for a losing streak

    This article is hilarious, it says that pretty much everyone knows legendarys are worthless(not true).

    Ex. Play a Duplicate next turn a hogger and whatever 4 mana or less spell to give the hogger a chance, next turn faceless manipulate the hogger so now there is 2 and at the end of each of ur turns get 2 free frostwolf grunts, and if one of the hoggers dies get 2 more and continue.

    not surprised at all, people just copy each others deck and hope to “get lucky” with draws

    Well that’s a lie. At least a white lie anyway. The trick to being good at Hearthstone does not often lie in an actual match itself, but in what cards you chose for your deck. There is a lot of thinking and skill in the game, just maybe not where people look for it. Either way never trusting this website again, they just want attention.

      Seriously, everything said in this article is complete garbage. Hearthstone is very similar to poker believe it or not. What separates a good poker from a bad one? When the good poker plays has the opportunity to advance his position, ONLY THEN does he decide to bid and raise the pot in order to POSSIBLY win. Most of the times he will. Whereas the bad poker player advances in any position and at any hand and ends up going bust.

      Same thing with hearthstone but HS is a much larger version than Poker and more complex due to its variety of cards, class specific cards etc . Just like poker.. you need a good starting hand. If you dont have it , you fold. In HS, you wait. Knowing how to efficiently use your mana EVERY SINGLE TURN and effectively dealing damage/using defensive skills and using smart mechanics behind combo’s is what wins the game. You need to optimize your wins efficiently and MAKE SURE YOU WIN EVERYTIME YOU CAN. Why do you think people are ranked in legend? because of pure luck ? No, it was because when the luck was on there side favoring them with one or more draws, they had the SKILL to build on that, and use it 100% to there own advantage.

      If i had to honestly state a percentage for luck factor in hearthstone, i would say its 30% luck 70%skill at its worst.

        Hahaha look at this nerd thinking that Hearthstone requires any sort of skill. Sorry bub it will forever be a 50% Chance of winning and losing. I had my dog play heartstone once and he won 25 games and lost another 25… a creature with no intelligence easily proves this.

        Bow down to Blizzard’s masterful game design or be beaten by a dog, scrub.

        We all know those legendary players are bots designed to give people hope they can overcome the absolute 50% win/lose chance.

  14. This article is a joke.

    Just goes to show you that any moron can tout their opinion on the internet and pass it off as “journalism”.

    Please delete this and stop wasting everyone’s time who is unfortunate enough to stumble upon it.

  15. Whatever says:

    This game really is all about luck.. you get a bad hand and your opponent get’s a strong opening hand it’s just GG from the get go..

    And if both of you get good hands it’s about trading and trading.. and use some very short term strategy.
    and still get lucky you have all the answers constantly.. thinking about removing this game off my computer..

    Hearthstone IS a game of pure luck. I would even go as far as to say 100% of games are luck.
    Why I say this? 5 minnion equality into madder bomber hitting all 5 minnions and last bomb hitting face.
    All collectible card games are decided by luck.
