Oh Hearthstone, we have such a love-hate relationship. It's such a great game, yet I have my ass handed to me on a constant basis. >.<
I know the best thing to do about losing is to just suck it up, try to learn from your mistakes, and keep going; I've tried, but I can't help feeling the losses wearing on me after losing so many games in a row. -Not just losing, but being totally trumped or playing catch-up with the other players the whole time. It really sucks too that if and when I finally DO win, I'm almost never satisfied.
One of the most frustrating aspects of losing game after game of Hearthstone is not only did I not progress anywhere in my epic quest to collect more powerful and useful cards, but I just spent a good chunk of time not doing so AND not enjoying myself. I've ended up asking myself numerous times if it's worth my time. Why am I playing this? What do I get out of it?
Anyway, I think it boils down to the idea that you're not really supposed to be playing the game to win. You're playing to have fun, to strategize, to work your way through the ever changing maze to victory. Winning is just an added bonus. Like all good games, it's not about the "win," it's about the struggle and the journey.
I still immensely enjoy Hearthstone; all of the possible plays out there with the variety of cards, the presentation, how it plays, getting excited watching Bear play a good game! XD I'm really looking forward to the next expansion in which Blizzard will be adding another hundred cards to the game!
