Borrowing notable characters from other blockbuster Warcraft games, such as World of Warcraft and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft Rumble adopts a more casual and friendlier tone to its gameplay instead.
Essentially, you come across an arcade machine while visiting a tavern within the Warcraft/ Hearthstone universe. Created by the Gnomes, the device uses miniature figurines of well-known heroes to be used as playable units inside a small, confined battle arena.
Also called Minis in-game, these units are separated into five different factions, each being:
Every unit will have different stats, abilities, and combat effectiveness for you to choose from, though battles mainly revolve around a rock-papers-scissors system pertaining to the following unit types:
- Strong against Ranged but weak against Flying
- Strong against Flying but weak against Melee
- Strong against Melee but weak against Ranged
Of course, other mechanics, like distinct unit stats, capturing of Guard Towers, the summoning of Mini Leaders, and introduction of Siege Troops, affect your tactical success in defeating the game’s challenges too.
To understand more about how to beat Warcraft Rumble, it’s best to play the game once it’s out. Better yet, read up on our guide once the game finally launches soon!
