Ye Olde #Hearthstone Tavern and Inn #YOHTAI Issue No. 2

Greetings friend!

This is Sparta!

 

THIS IS, err, YOHTAI – Ye Olde Hearthstone Tavern and Inn. 

YOHTAI is where we can add friends, connect, share, brag, bitch and whine about Blizzard’s game Hearthstone and other things. We also conversate and participate in live and recorded podcasts including HorsePLAY! LIVE and others. And, ok, we do some tips, cheats, and strategies…

If you haven’t read it, check out the YOHTAI Issue No. 1 here:

I’m ready! I’m not ready!

In the comments below, flaunt your OP internet and social game skillz – tell us your Hearthstone ID (Battle Tag), your in game name, your real name (if you dare), your city, connection points, and share your thoughts on Hearthstone with us.

Hearthstone News

Ranked Play Season 1: Pandamonium is almost over

Season 1 is coming to a close at the end of the month, and with it your chances of acquiring the Pandaria card back for your collection.

Fireside Gatherings FLOP

The Fireside Gathering is on. If you can log in three devices on the same router, you can get the Fireside Gathering card back. Blizzard’s big idea, however, was a big flop with hardly any HFG parties anywhere. Blizzard’s lack of commitment and investment in this social event leaves us with some questions about their community skills.

Sometimes, I forget things…

Our genius suggestion: A plushy Hearthstone Pillow awarded to the first 300 Fireside Gathering leaders signed up for the Cinco de Mayo slash This is Sparta bash. What Cinco de Mayo Bash?! Exactly.

Hearthstone Gear

Show off your Hearthstone gear. Send us a pic of you and your gear and we’ll feature it in YOHTAI. Send the pic to me (Stan) at stan.faryna@gmail.com

Below, the Hearthstone Pillow.

TOSH.0

TOSH.0 still don’t got love for the Hearthstone. Whazzup with that? He know internets? Obviously not. Because Hearthstone is one of the hottest iPad app downloads going on. It’s averaging 4.5 stars, got 7086 ratings overnight, and Hearthstone is at the top of the app download list.

Get in there and fight, Maggot!

Tweet Tosh and tell him what’s up: http://twitter.com/danieltosh

The queue sucks!

Get more servers, Blizzard!

Hearthstone Cheats

Some of us are casual gamers – playing less than 10 hours per week. But if you can log in for 30 minutes, you can collect the 40 gold daily quest reward with a little help from you friends at YOHTAI. Log-in, let your friends know you need a “little gold” in the chat and then take turns winning and losing to get that quest reward.

Tip No. 13

No one likes losing most of the time.
If you can’t survive to round 10 in most fights, whip out your credit card and throw down $20 on some cards. But not until you can survive until round 9. Because you need some tested and true ideas about how to play the game before new cards can help.
YOHTAI Groups and Beyond
YOHTAI is on Steam and Facebook!

Hearthstone School

If you’re new to Hearthstone, there may be some confusion about Rankings. We know there’s 25 rankings including Legend. But after you get to rank 20, you proceed (or not) to rank 19. This is not a bug.

Ye Olde #Hearthstone Tavern and Inn (16 April 2014) Issue No. 1

Greetings! Hello! Buna!

This is about Hearthstone. It’s about you. It’s about us. It’s also about games, good game play and, oh yeah, it’s about geeky stuff. Welcome bros, women of astounding warcrafts and (last but not least) transgender, illegal alien immigrant-persons from P3X-774.

Among other things, a good game provides a platform for social experience, frell, and the Noxian ritual of life. It brings people together – friends and family. And/or it allows people to connect and get to know each other. Hearthstone doesn’t do this well. Or not yet. But we can pick up the slack here at G.A.N.G (Geekly Antics Network Global).

This post and future Hearthstone posts at Geekly Antics will be our official Ye Olde Hearthstone Tavern and Inn (YOHTAI) – where we can add friends, connect, share, brag, bitch and whine about Blizzard’s game Hearthstone and other things. We’ll also be able to conversate and participate in live and recorded podcasts including HorsePLAY! LIVE and others. And, ok, we’ll do some tips, cheats, and strategies.
Why are you here?!

Hearthstone ringtones? We’re talking to music producer and artist Adrian Klein about making them for iPhone and Android. Would you donate $2 for your favorite Hearthstone ringtone?

Tip No. 42

You can never have too many friends on this lonely planet – or elsewhere!  
Make (add) friends in Hearthstone by adding a recent match opponent. Or from a shout out (comments) here at the Hearthstone Tavern and Inn.

Friends make everything better! 
Having trouble getting through the daily quest? Or it just takes too long? Ask a friend to help you out and let you win the two quest battles in a friendly fight. And don’t forget to return the favor. That’s 40 gold in 10 minutes or less!
