F2P Friday is our weekly showcase of the growing free-to-play market, from MMORPGs to first-person shooters and beyond. The stream team will feature the latest, greatest and just plain fun games that cost you nothing to play. Ever. Granted, you should throw the developer a bone if you enjoy a title, but you don’t have to.
Ladies and gentleman. Boys and girls. Children of all ages. Step right up and gaze at one of the rarest sights in nature. A man with such restraint, such steadfast determination, such lack of concern for his own progress that he’s hoarded the precious Au that is the bloodlife of the game of champions, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, not once but twice. Now through a court order from the state he is required by law to break from the self-imposed tradition opening the coffers to return the 79th element to its creator.
To date I have opened less than 20 expert packs, yet have been able to accumulate almost 250 wins, including plenty of ranked play. Again, purely a self-imposed disadvantage. But today, things will change. Today marks the first time that I will truly make a run for rares, epics and legendaries. And that run will encompass some 30+ expert packs opened and discussed live on the air during the return of F2P Friday after my recent road trip. Come join me as I assuredly redeem multiple purples and oranges and attempt to deduce which class will utilize them best and how to optimize the Goblins versus Gnomes cards into my paltry decks.
See those two well-thought out paragraphs above? Yeah, those were not my first, but my second attempt to consume the massive amount of gold sitting in my Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft account. Time and again life has gotten in the way. Actually, that’s a goddamned lie. It was Comcast both times. Screw you, Comcast! If I can’t open these packs later today I’ll sick the FCC and Left Shark on you until you’re run out of town like your subsidiary did to Brian Williams! At any rate, the next gold hoarding will commence immediately upon opening these packs. Gotta start the cache for the second Adventure Pack!
