On Writing Prompts (again) – Blaugust Day 12

So this morning I’m feeling a bit like my brain is mush and really just can’t think of either a good title, or anything really to talk about. Thankfully @jaedia had a writing prompt that I thought I could write a little bit about.

Is there any game that you watch for news of with as much passion as WoW players seem to? Tell us what and why!

For me the game that I really look out for news wise is Hearthstone. Namely because I just really enjoy it, and I like hearing about new card expansions or adventures that come out. In general I do enjoy card games such as Magic the Gathering and Hearthstone, but I wouldn’t say I’m very good at any of them. I might be average, but from watching pro players I can say that I’m certainly not that good.

You can say what you want about Blizzard’s update cycle, but I feel that at least for Hearthstone they are doing a good job with steady content updates and news. Right now their doing daily card reveals for the next expansion “The Grand Tournament” which I think is a great way for them to keep people talking about it. Every day they post two cards on their website for users to vote on and at the end of the day (or the start of the next) they post that card online.

While that doesn’t really give much in the way of news, I think it’s exciting to see the new cards that are coming out. The @PlayHearthstone account also posts/shares information on upcoming tournaments which can be fun to watch, so it’s nice to know when they’re happening.

Now I wouldn’t say I play Hearthstone a ton, just every once in awhile. But I enjoy being kept up to date on it, and the more I read the more I want to play.
