Hearthstone Goldens

World of Warcraft subscriptions might be down, but Hearthstone, and Hearthstone profits, are up, and we might have found the guy responsible.

Redditor MattCauthron wants all the golden cards in the game, or at least the competitive ones he can build a all his decks around, and to do that, he's dropping some serious cash. According to his post, he "bought 2100 packs while drunk" last night, racking up a price tag of $3,200 in the process. If you were wondering who those one-percenters are who spend like crazy in F2P games, you've found one.

For the moment, Matt's got five golden legendaries for his efforts, though it's tough to tell exactly how many packs he opened to get that far, since "I realized at my current rate it would be 5am before I finished opening them all and I did have work in the morning." We hope it's a well-paying job.

Do you guys even know what gold selling websites are? Now you're surprised they showed it bluntly in your face? Kind of a little bit late, airheads. Lineage 2, Aion, Archeage, WoW... every single MMO out there has gold sellers, is the same thing in hearthstone but it's just straight up from Blizzard it self. Amazing isn't it? #bam.

Hearthstone is boring and repetitive as a F2P game and way too expensive as a B2P game (costing hundreds of dollars to acquire every play-worthy card). However, the reason I don't play HS is simply because it involves too much RNG.

And nothing of value was gained. 7 years ago

Lots of people getting fired up on this lol. Just because he decided to drop a ton of money to get what he enjoys faster, that doesn't make the game P2W. Those who say that Hearthstone is a pay-to-win game either they don't know how to play or they don't play the game at all and are just haters.

And this is coming from someone who has never spent any money on the game, yet I still have all the golden cards, including those from adventure mode (which don't drop in any pack btw). I'm not trying to blow my own horn or anything, I was a noob too when I started playing Hearthstone but instead of calling the game P2W when I sucked and made mistakes, I learned from it and got better. Now getting legend every season not to mention tons of gold from arena when I feel like playing it. And no, golden cards and portraits don't help you win more.

There's a lot of information about Hearthstone and how to become a better player on the internet. One of the best guides that I used and learned a lot from is Hearthstone Mastery. You can find it here: http://bit.ly/1H7nR8C

Wow, so now you are posting garbage from reddit? And is this supposed to be funny or cute? It is actually pathetic. Plus games like this should be illegal. You can literally spend as money as you have on it. Even at the casino there is a limit.
Scamstone is a pathetic garbage rigged pay to win scam game. it is pathetic how most fantards of this game do not even know that Activision owns blizzard and this game.
