I’ve finally downloaded the game and started playing through the story (up to Chapter 9) and I’m really enjoying it so far.
First of all, there is the enjoyment of playing in Tamriel, with all the races, classes and foes you’d see there. Then there is the fact that the game has the Hearthstone bases covered, with a few cool additions: 2 lanes instead of 1 single playfield per side (and the lanes can have special effects applied to them), the draw of a card every 5 damage you take… And the ability to play that card immediately for free if it’s a “Prophecy” card. Permanent enchantments and the Breakthrough mechanic, which is the same MtG’s Trample.
It also looks very slick and as hefty and tactile as an electronic card game can.
I like that it brings a bit of added depth and variety with the ability to mix things up compared to Hearthstone. This is bringing back memories of fun times building and playing dual colour decks in MtG. So far, so good. I think I’ll stick with it a while longer.
I’m Wendelius in game if anyone wants to add me.
