  1. So Hearthstone.

    Couple of things I wanted to bring up; firstly, playing vs other players not in ranked is generally fine, as the people who’ve spent a bunch of time/money to get good cards generally want to show they’ve won, and go for ranked play. You can also get exactly the cards you want via the crafting mechanism, as long as you’re willing to disenchant the cards you don’t want.

    Whatever, don’t do any of them: the way to play Hearthstone (as with any TCG) is to play the limited format, which is the arena. You pay your 150 gold (because we’re not spending money; you get gold from wins, daily quests and/or winning the arena), and are presented with the choice of three classes. You pick one, and are then given 30 lots of a choice between three cards, all of your selections become your deck, and then you queue to play other people also doing this mode, which means card acquisition is not a problem, other than how well you picked your cards.

    With that said, it’s still not all that fun, although you can play indefinitely for free if you’re good enough at arena to win your entry fee back. You also get at least one booster pack for doing arena, so you do slowly build your collection up that way, except why would you play constructed when you can play limited.

    Conclusion: find people to play Netrunner instead.
