Critical Plays - Hearthstone - Arena Rogue Run!

We are taking Valeera on an Arena Run! If you haven't see our draft, check this out, but if you have, or you are done checking it out, then let's get ready to rumble!


Hearthstone Arena is one of the more fun aspects of the game, where you pick a random hero from a choice of three, then draft a 30 card deck and duke it out with online opponents.  The longer you last, the better your loot!  Packs, gold, crafting dust and more await the victors!


Check back often, as over the next few days we'll be posting all our games from this Arena run until we collect 3 losses!  You'll be able to see our wins, our defeats, and our loot at the end!  And of course, leave your comments below, or on our YouTube channel (or both) and let us know your thoughts!

Game 1

Game 2

Game 3

Game three was unfortunately lost... to the void... literally!

Game 4


Now it is your chance to win! We're giving away one Beta Acess key to a random winner from everyone who comments on this blog post and/or our YouTube video of Game 4!  Share either link, comment on either, and you could win!


Winner will be randomly drawn at 8:00 PM CST so enter soon!  The key is only good in North America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia, so the winner must be from their to take advantage of it! 


Good luck, thank you for watching and until we see YOU in Hearthstone, keep rolling those dice, or in this case, flipping those cards, and we hope they're all Crits!

UPDATE - October 27th, 2013: Congrats to JD Reid, the winner of our Hearthstone Beta Key Giveaway! Thanks for being a Critical Fan JD, enjoy!

    This is the second game you have brought to my attention through Facebook. Your reviews are always well spoken and informative. I'm just convinced you are trying to get me to spend money! Thanks for the videos!

    Well, I'm glad you are enjoying what you are seeing, but at least with Hearthstone, it's a free to play model :) Thanks for watching and hope you continue to enjoy more games we share!

    I was under the impression that the beta keys for HS was region free? Or is that just some of them?
