Enjoying Hearthstone but want to reach that next unattainable rank? Eager to learn how you can move beyond just praying to Cenarius and throwing cards down and into the exciting world of analysis, prediction, and informed decision making? If so, that's amazingly convenient, as that's exactly what we'd love to teach you!
The Hearthstone Beginner's Guide is something we put together back in late 2015; through the process of three episodes we guide you through the core concepts of Hearthstone mechanics, the various deck archetypes and their roles, and finally the role of unknown information and range, and how you can use these combined with statistics to predict the unpredictable. Andres and Bryan (though mostly Andres) share easy-to-understand but valuable advice on how to start looking at Hearthstone in a new way, using a solid understanding of the fundamentals to create a basis of confidence and sound strategy to fuel all your future play. It's conversational, easily digestible, and each episode includes a companion article that summarizes the various topics. Whether you have a friend who's just starting out or would like to brush up on the basics yourself, we hope you enjoy and share this introduction to the world of competitive Hearthstone that we love so much!
