I’m a passionate Hearthstone player and I’m sure that I’m not the only one. Blizzard has made one heck of a game and there are millions out there competing every day. But I’m very disappointed at the fact that there is no official game on the Windows Store!
I play Hearthstone on my Android smartphone and on my Windows 8.1 laptop, but I also have a tablet, and I would love so much to be able to play the game on its friendly 8-inch screen, as well. The problem, however, is that not all tablets can run the game as if it was playing on a desktop.
So, in my case, the game ‘doesn’t fit’ on the entire screen and I’m not able to see it full screen, but rather 1/3. However, there are many Windows tablet owners who have reported that the game runs as if it was natively supported, which is great for them. My tablet isn’t that powerful, it’s actually a pretty low-end one, but I can’t say that this is the single reason why the game won’t work.
Back in the summer of last year, Blizzard has issued an important update which was meant to bring a smile on the face of Windows users. The company released support for playing the game on touchscreen devices running on the latest Windows version. This was a nice upgrade indeed, but other than that, there was no more love for us owners of Windows tablets.
What’s even more annoying, I guess, is that not even Windows Phone users got an official version, which is outrageous, to be fair! Blizzard probably doesn’t consider them as a noteworthy financial opportunity, hence the lack of an official app. However, with Windows 10 right around the corner, things are definitely going to change and Blizzard could reconsider its strategy towards users of Windows mobile.
But until then, we’ll have to resort to the current ways of playing Hearthstone. Leave your comment below and express your discontent with the situation, maybe somebody from their company is listening to this.
