Despite their imprisonment, these shadowy beings' influence can be felt in every corner of Azeroth, twisting and corrupting any who hear their maddening whispers. With an army of followers performing forbidden empowerment rituals, the tentacles of these massive horrors are growing rapidly toward the light, eager to bring their own kind of excitement to the sunlit kingdoms and merry taverns of Azeroth.

    More effective than any other Hearthstone expansion so far thanks to the new Standard and Wild modes, Whispers of the Old Gods brings some necessary changes in addition to keeping things fresh for Hearthstone veterans, all while making things more welcoming to newcomers.

    Whispers of the Old Gods is an impressive expansion for an awesome game that’s continuing to grow in a very clever way.

    Time will tell whether or not Hearthstone will keep appealing to new players. With Whispers of the Old Gods the game feels new and fresh once again that two years after the release of the vanilla game still makes it worth playing.

    Hearthstone: Whispers of the Old Gods manages to bring a breath of fresh air to a stale metagame. Design seems to have shifted from useful all-around good cards to more unique cards that you build your deck around, creating new and refreshing archetypes. Another solid hit after League of Explorers. [June/July 2016]

    Unfortunately the newest expansion of the popular card game not only does little to provide additional depth, quite the contrary as it rather reduces the variety of top decks. We wouldn’t be surprised if in the near future we will only see a handful of identical decks on the virtual tables.

Someone was under a heavy Lovecraft influence or playing too much Bloodborne when making this expansion and I love it. The entire old gods theme is just amazing, finally cards in Hearthstone that are not completely kiddie & goofy, much much better than both GvG and TGT. With these cards and new standard format, this has been the biggest change in decks in Hearthstone history and it feels like a very welcome refreshment. By far the best Hearthstone expansion yet. 9/10 Expand

SI puedes evitar jugarlo, hazlo. Se parece más a una tragaperras (necesitas pagar para divertirte y es todo pura aleatoriedad) que a otros juegos de cartas como Magic The Gathering.

    This is not a game that the user has any control over, they might as well sit back and watch the computer play their turns, everything reliesThis is not a game that the user has any control over, they might as well sit back and watch the computer play their turns, everything relies on the computer which has not been programmed with even basic probability or even mathematical odds, because its algorithm has already decided in advance just how its formulations would go, effectively pre-selecting any winner.

    It is not a game that rewards its gamer's for their time and investment, so they get better and progress, instead every time they achieve it matches them against something x5 times better. This is because it makes melon head get an even fatter head. A head that literally should be knocked about like a pinata until balanced cards and fair play fall out. The cards aren't balanced and neither are its classes,, because freaking melon head only fancied himself as that class its best. The game constantly disconnects it players, unlike any other game they play, because melon head greedily steals all the money instead of even doing basic server maintenance. Melon head server maintenance was programming in more melon headed bots to rig any outcomes.

    Everything in this game is rigged from the way the cards are drawn, the way any cards attack, the sequence the cards attack, and every opponent you are fixed against.

    Do us all a favor and put this crappy game just where it belongs. We might suggest the steam pro tourney version might be fairer. No it still had the same melon headed concepts to begin with, where you are literally just watching a computer choose and rigging your luck. Because any deck will win and every deck will lose, but it is up to the computer just what it decides. Stomp that freaking melon head in.

    Literally 0 decision-making involved. 30-card decks and mana limitation means that every game is decided by RNG. You can only play 1 card inLiterally 0 decision-making involved. 30-card decks and mana limitation means that every game is decided by RNG. You can only play 1 card in pretty much every turn,so if RNG decides that your opponent draws better cards or cards that counter your cards, you just lose the game and vice versa. Also, the community is retarded (I mean, they still play the game, duh). Expand
