Blizzard Wants To Know How Much Players Would Pay For A Hearthstone Subscription Via Survey
The survey also mentions 3D gameplay where Heroes and minions would come to life on screen.
It wasn't that long ago that Blizzard sent out a survey asking their players how much money they were willing to spend on Overwatch 2’s Legendary and Mythic skins. It would seem Blizzard liked this method because they are relying on it once more, this time asking their Hearthstone players how much they would be willing to spend on a monthly subscription with access to all Standard cards in 1 class of the player's choice. Some of the options on the survey are listed below.
• Monthly subscription (all Standard cards): one monthly price of $20 to access all Standard cards including the current expansion (uncraftable)
• Monthly subscription (all Standard cards for 1 class): one monthly price of $10 to access all Standard cards in 1 class of your choice (uncraftable)
• Monthly subscription (all Standard cards): one monthly price of $10 to access all Standard cards except the current expansion (uncraftable)
• Monthly subscription (top deck for 3 classes): one monthly price of $10 to access the current top-performing deck for 3 classes of your choice (uncraftable)
Perhaps I’m wrong, but a $10 or $20 monthly subscription seems like a lot. Especially when compared to other subscription services, like FFXIV, where a $14.99 subscription gives you access to an entire world filled with quests, events, housing, and a whole lot more.
The survey wasn't just about how Blizzard could earn more money (surprisingly). It also contained a lot of earnest ideas that, if answered honestly by players, could bring about a lot of improvements and neat features like fully-realized 3D gameplay, in-game live events that would connect the global player base, smart success metrics that could improve a players deck with real-time card win rate statistics, public profiles that would showcase player's progress and achievements, and a whole lot more.
It would be nice if some of these ideas were incorporated into the game, but an idea alone is never enough, and with the way Blizzard has been handling things recently, no one really knows what will come of this survey.
Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about such actions within his company – and performed some himself – and shielded the perpetrators from consequences.
