Winning in Hearthstone can be a demanding task.
Winning in Hearthstone can be a demanding task. For players that haven't been around since the early days of beta, not only do they have to contend despite not having all of the latest and greatest cards, they also have to acclimate to an all new game with a plethora of archetypes to both defeat and learn how to play.
But just like every other card game in existence, the most impactful thing you can do is to understand your win condition. "Given this matchup, on this turn, how am I going to win the game?" These are the kind of questions you should be asking yourself each and every turn. There's a reason Blizzard gives you 75 seconds to make a decision. The best players in the world use up every second of that to contemplate what kind of plays their opponent might make in the future, what tools are at their disposal, and try to glean as much information as possible out of the previous turns.
If that sounds daunting, it is, even for experienced Hearthstone players. Many understand how they win in general but struggle with unfavorable matchups because they aren't sure under what circumstances they can win.
Luckily we have FalconePunch55 to break down the basics of win conditions. He touches on the three major types and then explores examples of each in today's meta.
