If you’re a Hearthstone player, you’ll know how frustrating it can be to wait for your opponent to finish their turn. While a few seconds between turns can be aggravating, imagine if it takes up to 14 minutes. That’s exactly what happened with this gameplay video from The Optimistic Brit, which shows how insane Dreadsteed, a card introduced in The Grand Tournament expansion, can be.
The turn that probably seemed like forever to these players take place around the 2:10 mark. The combination of Knife Juggler – which deals one damage whenever a minion is summoned – and Dreadsteed (which respawns upon death) ended up with a play that took about 14 minutes. The turn mainly involved Knife Juggler repeatedly throwing knives at opposing sides of the field. Even when both players are down to zero health the turn still went on.
However, it’s very likely that this particular scenario was set-up judging by the state of the board when the 14-minute turn took place. For one, the health of both heroes are pretty high at that point of the match, not to mention how both decks have similar cards and combos.
More likely than not, the video is just to show how ridiculous a game with Dreadsteed can be, especially with the right combination of cards. The Grand Tournament expansion sure brought a slew of interesting (and time-consuming) plays.
