This must still be in the beta, since I can't find a way to download it

Yeah, still in closed beta. Supposed to go open beta sometime before the end of the year I though.

yeah it's still in beta. I have played a bit of it and find the constructed is quiet easy too climb rankings

Arena format is very cool and I like the concept of it, certainly levels the playing field if you don't have the collection to carry you.
from my experience ladder is quiet easy up until around diamond league. I won about 90% of my games through copper -> Silver - > Gold --> platinum
and now leveled out in diamond bracket winning about 50% of my games.

Why the hate on constructed out of curiosity? it seems to be a running thing

Post Re: Hearthstone
for anyone that really wants to play it, I might even have a spare key available seeing as my friends group all have keys now.

Also a worthy card game that's old but well worth trying out is Shadow Era.
Extremely cheap to. I think I have spent roughly $90 AU and own play sets for both of the available sets (Call of the Crystals & Dark Prophecy)
Only thing wrong with Shadow Era is that it takes like 2 years per Expansion set :/ and after waiting that long when the new set finally came out I was so eager to play it
that I burned a large pool of hours playing it too death for a week then stopped outright and now waiting for new expansion.
They need to bring out a new set every year minimum to keep me consistently keen on playing or else I get bored hah

There's no variety. Every deck from a given class is the same within 3-5 cards. Super boring.

Post Re: Hearthstone
yeah you're actually right sadly i notice this a lot. its 90% class cards followed by around 5 cards difference.
hopefully this will change when new sets come out.
i think hearthstone would be alot more enjoyable if it was about 40-50 lifepoints and a 50-60 card deck with 3x card limit per card
turn 3 wins by a lucky hand are pretty common and require no skill

damn Murlocs

everyone with access to them runs 2x removal card (Execute for Warrior, Polymorph for Wizard, etc)

so even your big gnarly super beatstick you have to realize might be gone with a one / two card play.

but there is still a lot of room for combo strategy.
Shaman big Windfury is effective.
Silence is strong (golden?)

just grinding on quests to gain gold.

I have had great success with warrior deck, using mass enrage like Amani berserker & the cost 3 worgen with enrage using cruel battle master too set off the enrages and inner rage. On turn 3 with a rampage iv had a 13-4 berserker and them on around 7 hp. Went from copper to diamond league in about 5 hours

I'd be interested in the spare key if it means I get into the beta. My brother just got in it.
I'd be interested in that decklist

Hey Chaos,

Unfortunately the key has been taken now but if you would still like the deck list I am more then happy to provide (I owe you a few deck lists anyway ;)
I went from unranked to 1 star diamond (stopped playing after I made diamond) in 5 hrs.

2x Inner Rage
1x Execute
1x Cleave
2x Herioc Strike
2x Rampage
2x Amani Berserker
2x Cruel Taskmaster
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Shield Block
1x Frothing Berserker
2x Raging Worgen
2x Warsong Commander
1x Mortal Strike
2x Arathi Weaponsmith
2x Kor'Kron Elite
2x Arcanite Reaper
1x Gorehowl
1x Grommash Hellscream

I would now probably drop - 1x Frostwolf Grunt for a +1 Frothing Berserker OR a Elven Archer (battlecry "deal 1 damage" just to initiate the enrage proc's faster
If you can manage to get a Enraged Worgen with "Inner Rage" & "Rampage" and they have no taunt it's basically GG (18 Damage 1 turn)

Only deck I struggled against was mage ;/ but who doesn't..
