What is Hearthstone Esports? Playing Warcraft with Cards or Something More?

Hearthstone is a card game that was created and published by Blizzard. The developer is best known for his Warcraft series. By the way, HS is also associated with the universe of this game. All cards are dedicated to the world of Warcraft.

How to Play Hearthstone?

At first glance, the essence of the game is very simple, but if you do not go into details. Each Hearthstone player must collect his own deck of cards, with which he will then play matches against other gamers. First you need to choose your hero. After that, the players receive the starting cards in their hands. The first player takes 3, and the second player takes 4. Cards are laid out on the table, this costs mana. The players’ task is to destroy the enemy hero. It initially has 30 health points.

Luck and some randomness play a big role in Hearthstone. The player can have a good deck, but first the weakest cards will fall to him, or those that he cannot use at the initial stage. His opponent, on the contrary, will be more fortunate with the initial set, and he will be able to consolidate the advantage. But, nevertheless, a lot also depends on the players. They should have a balanced deck of cards that will allow them to play well at all stages of the match. They must also skillfully throw cards on the table, predict how the opponent can respond. All this comes with experience.

Donate also plays an important role in the game. To get top cards, you need to either play long and hard, or just donate money. This makes the threshold for entering the professional league higher. At the same time, Hearthstone eSports turns out to be more entertaining, since only high-level players with powerful cards get into it.
