Definitely a Pay to win Game if someone tells you otherwise check for yourself and compare the cards. Compare the free basic cards to the "premium" cards the game was good back in 2013. Today it is all premium and most of its users have stoped playing. This game is no different than Yugioh or Pokemon I used to believe it was but it's the same concept the bigger your wallet the better you play
An incredible, addictive and fun game. AND NOT PAY TO WIN. people here who claim it is are idiots who do t want to invest time building their decks with rewards you earn in game. You earn enough gold to buy card packs very regularly and there are always free packs being handed out. Bern playing for 2 years and no paid a penny and can always get I to rank 15 or better in ranked at with the cards I have. NOT PAY TO WIN AT ALL
As time continues more and more cool special effects are added to cards that look great, until on the second consecutive match where by the third spell has the phone stuttering and by turn ten it's a slide show. Skip if your phone doesn't beat the recommended benchmark, or when they add low FX settings sometime around half past never. If you beat the recommended mark enjoy a solid mobile port of Hearthstone.
Fun at the beginning when you're learning playing agaibst low level players like you but qyickly ends up being pay to win. Good luck winning against peoples overpowered cards. Game balance is practically non existent. Skill and Progression relies solely on if you have enough money to buy lots and lots of packs to get all the good cards. Its a pity because this game would be amazing if balanced correctly. 2/5
So basically, it is, or i should say was a fun card game to pass the time. However, the devs release insane cards which urge playing in only a certain style. This isnt optimal, as it removes creativity and fun from the game. This makes people less likely to return to the game. Before the meta of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, it was awesome. Many different playstyles were valid and you could win as. Now, ranked consists of mostly pirate Warrior, control shaman or the occasional Reno Jackson Priest. Don't get me wrong, it's a fun game, but the most urged playstyle (ranked stantard) isn't fun to play anymore.
So it's fun for a short while, however if you don't spend insane amounts money to get packs (most packs have merely normal cards, incredibly rare to get a legendary). You will not make a deck that will get you to the top spot without a few meta cards and that's for real. Pay to win game all the way. I'm looking for better card games now. I loved game but after last patch the level of incompetence in developing team has turned my love into disdain. Is it too much to ask that you make the game you force ppl to spend on work correctly?
