Content of the article: "The Free Adventure Is Great For Kids"
My little son is fascinated with card games and loves playing hearthstone in particular. However as he doesn’t play much and I don’t want to pump money into his account, he doesn’t have a lot of cards and it’s near impossible for him to grind for gold to purchase adventures.
Why not let him use my account to play the adventures I’ve unlocked? That was my suggestion but he wants to have his “own account” and ”do it himself“.
Ladder is a bit heart-breaking for him as he has had multiple experiences painstakingly making a home brew deck out of what he has, only to see it get shredded by meta decks. He likes Battlegrounds as it’s free and doesn’t need a collection but finds it a bit fast and confusing. He also likes Tavern Brawl (though it took him ages to get a hero to 20 to unlock it – I don’t understand why it’s locked at all for new players) but some weeks it is ”silly” or “too weird” or “needs all the purple and orange stone cards”.
He wants to play adventures because “the computer waits for you and it gives you cards you can figure out a way to win with and they are funny” but he looks at the 2800 gold needed forlornly. He has played some of the free solo stuff, he even successfully completed Rastakahn’s rumble, but he wants to play the ”big adventures with a story and epic things and a million bosses”.
You should have seen his eyes light up when I told him today that there was a new free five chapter adventure. He didn’t believe me until he logged into his account and saw it. Then he thought I had bought it for him secretly but when I persuaded him that this year the solo adventures were really free he was dancing on the ceiling. He loves the rhymes, which play better with a younger audience, and he finds the fights challenging but winnable. I let him stay up specially to complete chapter 1 so he could get his packs and he was so excited when one had THREE RARES INSIDE DAD. THREE RARES IN ONE PACK DAD. NOT ONE RARE IN EACH OF THE THREE PACKS, ONE PACK HAD THREE RARES INSIDE DAD. Also the sporelock mushroom guy whose name I forget is his favourite thing ever.
I wonder if kids are actually who this is aimed at. Older people like me seem to go “where are the rewards, there’s no new cards, these rhymes are embarrassing, it’s too easy, this power of friendship stuff is lame, etc.” and pride ourselves on our prowess at the ”more serious” ladder/BG/arena modes. But for someone his age he’s just over the moon to have a big chunk of premium content he can just mess about with and enjoy. Thanks Blizzard – he had gotten depressed about his chances on ladder and this has brought back the joy for him.
