Hearthstone can be considered one of the fastest growing eSports games this year. Despite having a short history of development compared to League of Legends or DotA 2, but with special gameplay, Hearthstone has quickly conquered a large number of players.
Looking back at the journey that Hearthstone has gone, we can see that the game has changed a lot, especially meta-games – strategies and tactics that players create. And while Hearthstone is in the middle of accelerating towards the finals at Blizzard’s annual Blizzcon conference. Developers have released a brief meta-historical video, designer Ben Brode said. is a combination of different decks that players bring and you may want to refer.
The video showed some popular decks built with powerful strategies. For example, Early Beta Rogue, its focus is to repeatedly activate the power of the Rogue class to be able to finish the opponent in a turn. Other strategies, such as Freeze Mage, use ice magic to lock the opponent in multiple turns and finish, causing the course of the game to completely tilt to one side.
And the strongest deck is probably the Hunter, most of them are used quite a lot in professional competitions as well as in Hearthstone. Unleash the Hounds cards, along with Starving Buzzard, Hunter’s Mark, Timber Wolf and Scavenging Hyena are important cards when using “Hunter aggro” and appear in the mid-game builds. When combining these cards together, Hunter can completely “wipe out” almost all of the cards currently on the opponent’s table.
Hearthstone fans are very interested in the video of developers and appreciate their message. Accordingly, Blizzard has acknowledged that while they have control over the cards, the player is the one who dominates the meta. Eric Dodds, design team leader explained:
“Actually, we do not own meta. What I am looking forward to is the unexpected metaphors that players bring to us.”
