Originally posted 2015-12-29 12:00:56. Recently I’ve taken part in two Hearthstone tournaments. The first one was not great. Lost opening match 2-0 to someone who (a)successfully Golden Monkeyed me (not a euphemism) (b)completely bamboozled me with a Hunter secret I was not expecting (Dart Trap! – first time I’ve ever seen it played!). Last Wednesday…

Originally posted 2015-12-05 12:00:34. Well I ended my November Hearthstone series at rank 13. At one point I hit rank 10 – I’m so disappointed to have slipped back to 13. My Dragon/Vol’Jin Priest deck let me down (how could you Vol’Jin after I disenchanted so many cards to craft you!) & I spent too…

Originally posted 2015-11-21 17:00:25. Well it’s official – I already dislike Reno Jackson. It’s not personal – I’m sure he’s an awesome explorer. However, in Hearthstone … well he’s definitely no friend of mine. Until Reno I was doing quite well this month. I’m rank 10 as I type – my highest in a good few months. I’ve done this mainly…

Originally posted 2015-11-08 08:22:14. Like last year, the climax of Blizzcon’s Hearthstone World Championship was a rather quick no-nonsense affair with Swedish Ostkaka triumphing over Canadian Hotform in three games. The first game was a fascinating contest between two types of Mage – Hotform’s Tempo Mage (which I play) and Ostkaka’s Freeze Mage (which I now want…

Originally posted 2015-06-01 12:00:11. This weekend I got the itch to play new games. Do not get me wrong, I love WoW and I love playing it for hours and hours, but other than playing Civ 5 and some Diablo I have been stuck on WoW for a long time. This is mostly due to…

The recent Hearthstone patch brought with it the new Deck Recipes. Basically 3 recipes per class to get you quickly underway with a particular deck type. I’ve been trying it out this morning (so excited in fact I got up at 5am – is this uber geekness or uber sadness?). I started with a Shaman Murloc deck which was…

For too long now I’ve been netdecking from Hearthpwn. Sometimes I have success with a deck taken from there, sometimes I have epic failures, never do I get to Legend. So this month I’ve decided to go it alone with my own Mage Reno deck.  See here:- http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/433182-where-art-thou Feel free to netdeck if you like to…

I’ve had a fairly good start to Hearthstone this month – well fairly good for me anyway (the Legend rank remains a mythical promised land).  I’m rank 12 (with 2 stars – let’s not forget those 2 stars). It got there using a quickish Pally deck found on Hearthpwn. It worked well from 17 to 12 but…
