Thread: Hearthstone vs Hex

  1. #1

    Hearthstone vs Hex

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...thstone-or-Hex

    Granted that thread is old, the current conversation seems to go like that. Either they have no idea what Hex is or will only play Hearthstone because it is Blizzard. Hearthstone is a super polished, super simple game. Will it have more appeal than a supposedly hardcore TCG? You betya.

    It's up to you and me to change that. I know that every person I play on MWS I mention Hex to. Most haven't heard of it. With a few sentences I hopefully get them to check out a Youtube video, or Google it. Go to your card shops and tell everybody, let's get this opinion turned around and let's stoke the fires of hype in our friends!

    I'm not at all worried about Hearthstone. When the game releases with alpha and beta, and especially general release, word will spread very quickly about HEX I believe. But, yeah, I'm definitely telling anyone I think might be interested.

    No it won't they're vastly different games. Hearthstone is an iPad style CCG. Hex is a fully featured TCG.

    I will probably play both (of course I'll play hex after spending $500 on it). They do not compete for the same exclusive audience

    Hex's only competitor is MTGO. If people have enough money to play that and do not care about the PvE stuff but would like a more developed and balanced (sorry, Hex will not be as balanced or well designed as MTG) PvP experience, they will play MTGO. If they want something a bit less expensive and want some of the PvE and character building action (both for me, I'll play MTG in person) then they will play Hex.

    If they're moneybags, they're play both.

    MTG in a sense is not even a competitor of Hex. If MTG did not get such an insane boost in popularity over the past 4 years or so there would be next to no demand for this game. They help eachother

    Your claim, if I understand it right, is that people who weren't going to play Hex anyway are going to play Hearthstone 'cos it's Blizzard? And that's bad?

    If anything, Hearthstone may serve as a gateway drug to Hex. All those people coming off World of Warcraft, trying out Hearthstone, getting bored with its simplicity- then they hear about a game like Hearthstone but more complex.... they find Hex TCG and inject it in-between their toes so no one at work finds out they are using.

    Do you not agree? The link I used was tied directly into my title. Then I went straight into my argument for why we should change this. Think you shoulda used a less pointless post in my thread...

    I completely agree with this. Heartstone will pull in the general audience and some of those new fans of TCG will move on to a more competitive and mature game in Hex. The issue with Hex is that it isn't out - so no one, besides those of us from the get go reading and watching everything, really knows how wonderful Hex can and will be until it is released.
