Hearthstone hits 30 million players

All right, bear with us here. We’re not great at math at Massively Overpowered. But as it stands, Hearthstone has apparently hit 30 million players, which probably means that at least a third of your body is playing Hearthstone right this moment. Even if you’re not aware of it. Maybe it’s your toes? Have you checked your toes?

Or perhaps that’s not what the announcement means at all. It might just mean, you know, 30 million people play Hearthstone, which is pretty neat. All we know for sure is that at this growth rate, next year Hearthstone will be the President. Or something. Again, not so good with math.

and they did it again

this is why Blizzard doesn’t ever want to make another MMO.  Or anything else that has anything to do with breaking their hypnosis.

its really a joke how everybody plays blizzard games like there is nothing else.
anyway, probably because the games can run on toasters and they sell them in every walmart around the world.

accessibility. i suppose.

as a card game, it is pretty so-so in my opinion…

Haven’t played it in months and refuse to be suckered into a $20 dollar half hour experience for the new expansion.  Game just gets old especially if you don’t spend money on it and don’t get legendaries.  If they had ranked gameplay based on the cards in your deck it might be a different story but putting a person with a handful of legendaries against someone who has none, just makes no sense to me.  Ah well, nothing beats an in the flesh physical game of Magic the Gathering, now THAT’S a card game that ANY deck can win in.  Extra rare cards or not.

Oleg Chebeneev I feel hesitant to get invested in online games run by Ubisoft, whether that is fair or not. I can say that Hearthstone lacks the depth I appreciated from MTG when I played it, but Wizards of the Coast can’t get a proper MTG Online game together. I would play MTG Online if it were more of a competitor to Hearthstone.

I’m assuming part of that recent bump in playership was the recent release for smartphones, at least good for a few extra million installs (which is probably what they’re counting). HS is still growing with no signs of slowing down anytime soon, so numbers like this aren’t surprising – but still great to see!
