    We will see but I can't see this A++ title being in the international app stores for WEEKS before a US launch. If it was a indie title from an unkown company ok but this is such a big release I don't think blizzard would put it in any App Store if it "wasn't ready"

    My 2 cents

    Pretty choppy on my iPad mini, but still playable. Hoping it smooths out with a few updates.

    I would hope a card game could run alright on older devices but doesn't sound like it.

    Anyhow, damn ipad users! I guess it's time for me to invest..

    This game is the exact same game people have been playing on PC for months. If you go on twitch tv there are a couple big time streamers that play this. And most of them win all the time without spending a penny. It's about how good you are at deck building and strategy. Don't get me wrong, if you spend real money you can buy packs and get stuff quicker, but I guarentee you that you can spend all the money in the world on cards and someone can destroy you with out spending one penny

    No offline mode is a bit of letdown, as my mobile internet plan is not unlimited . I can play it anywhere at home so I am eagerly waiting...

    While this is mostly true, there is the 10% luck factor, which are the first cards you draw. Watched some of the best players lose on the initial draw just because it was bad, and his opponent drew the cards he needed.

    This rarely happens, and even 10% is probably high, but you'll see it.

    That's where you are wrong in terms of simplicity and right about the game opening up later on. Ever heard of the World of Warcraft TCG? Coz this is patterned from that. It is closer to Magic the Gathering in terms of mechanics, but quite different coz of the classes and class specific cards.

    Once you open up more of the game, it is strategy galore. You can build a heal deck, a unit-focused deck, a spell-centric deck, a weapon/armor deck, a control deck, an all-out rush deck, a direct damage deck, and more. Focusing on one or two of these strategies are more likely to succeed with card synergies and specific class abilities.

    Damn do I want to give this a go. I know this has been asked a million times but is it possible to create a account in one of the 3 launch areas without a credit card? I'm in the US. Any help would be so awesome and you can PM me if you like. Thanks!

    Well, like I said, it is simply my initial impression from playing for a bit, I certainly am willing to play more and find more depth to the game.

    Im sure you'll find it a lot deeper than the usual freemium card games on the appstore.

    Yup. As an option, there is a way using itunes in your computer to overwrite the old copy with the one you got from your local appstore.

    I think the cards are tied to your battle.net account, so it should act like icloud. I think i read somewhere that you can possibly play with those who actually play Hearthstone on the PC.

    Making a NZ account took me five minutes. Just google it. Use a random name generator site for the address. Follow instructions from a guide (I used one on Pocket Gamer).
