Former assistant community manager, Robert Wing joins the Well Met crew to discuss the latest in Hearthstone and talk about the esports scene, its casting, and the community.

Back to TopInterview Highlights

  • Robert thinks Hearthstone casting has improved a lot over the last year and believes there should be a marriage between highlighting the action and lighthearted silliness/banter.
  • In his opinion the biggest improvement to HCT has been the switch to 100% open tournaments, even though it can result in relatively unheard of players making up a lot of the field.
  • He also mentions how it's hard to get everything right since "no digital card game has ever gotten to this point before."

Apologies for the beginning of the video - we forgot to turn the preshow music off. It is resolved after the first few minutes.
