This is it! The climax! The finale! The omega! The terminus! The coup de grace! The swan song! The denouement! The last part of our 3-part Beginner's Guide! This week we focus on the last great fundamental of Hearthstone strategy: predicting the unpredictable.
There's a lot of unknown information in Hearthstone, from what your opponent has in his hand to where a Mad Bomber is going to lob his creations of chaos, but there are ways to analyze and control this information so that it works for rather than against you. Throughout this episode we'll explain the concept of ranges, and how this can be learned and applied to everyday play of Hearthstone to make you a better and more informed player. Probably. (Statistics joke!)
This will hopefully serve both as a useful introductory lesson for new players as well as a fun refresher for old pros, but be sure to let us know what you think through any of the many options below!
Also, be sure to check out the Episode Outline, which is an article based on our show notes that you can either read in tandem with the episode or even on its own. I know I always like to have written resources I can go through at my own pace, so we hope you'll find it helpful as well!
