How to Play Hearthstone on PC with BlueStacks
Hearthstone is the most popular digital CCG on both the PC and Mobile platforms because of its direct connection to the ever-famous MMORPG – World of Warcraft – both were developed by Blizzard Games. Hearthstone has been giving players some of the best real-time PvP experiences for seven years. The game gives players the satisfaction of competing against players around the world, competing in a game of strategy and luck as the players duke it out using Azeroth’s most recognizable characters.

The TCG and CCG communities take playing card games to the next level; they’ll do anything that gives them even the slightest advantage to get the cards they want, as it even appeals to them on a spiritual level.

Useful Features When Playing Hearthstone on BlueStacks
Now that you’ve downloaded Hearthstone on your BlueStacks device, it’s time to show you which features will give you the best advantages when playing this game on an emulator. Hearthstone has some mechanics that work best when the player has more utility options available on the platform that they are using. Here are some of the most useful features that you can use when playing Hearthstone on the BlueStacks platform on your PC.
Hearthstone is highly competitive and can be pretty harsh on the newer players that may not have the financial ability to build a strong deck from the limited resources provided early in the game. The best way for players to get as many Crystals as possible is by rerolling accounts that have a good amount of legendary cards from the Class that they are using. This will give players a fighting chance at competing in the ranked ladders immediately.
The biggest hurdle in rerolling is the time consumption both from the initial tutorial you have to play through and the act of rerolling itself. As long as you don’t bind an account to the game immediately, you can reroll as many times as you want. Use the Multi-Instance feature to open multiple devices to play Hearthstone on multiple instances while combining it with the Macro feature so that players will be able to play through the tutorial automatically.
Another great thing about playing Hearthstone on BlueStacks is that you have the flexibility of resizing and relocating your game window instead of it staying static in one place. This feature is mostly for players that like to multitask on their computer, especially if they don’t have a 2nd monitor. Having window flexibility will also prevent players from having to [ALT + TAB] between windows, as it might cause your computer to freeze up or close the game unintentionally.
Now you’ll be able to do your work or watch your favorite shows while also monitoring your opponent’s movements on the side. The efficiency of doing so means that you’ll never again have to waste time reviewing what your opponent did during his/her turn because you’ll be able to watch it alongside what you were doing in real-time. Time is an important thing in any card game, especially if you’re playing a technical deck like a control or combo deck that requires a lot of thinking time.
If you want to showcase your gameplay to the internet, the BlueStacks Screen Recorder function is definitely a useful tool to have. Recording games on the mobile platform can often be near-impossible; such devices often lag and overheat because of the enormous processing requirements being asked of such a small device. There is also the issue of PC platforms where the file size of the screen recording turns out too large to be uploadable.
BlueStacks has quite a smooth screen recording function that uses the basic processing of mobile games while using the entire power of your computer. Even if you have a very simple PC setup, you can smoothly run the screen recorder on your BlueStacks platform without worrying too much about it lagging in the background.
