Battlegrounds Hearthstone Strategy

Every curve you need to know in Battlegrounds

Battlegrounds Curve cheat sheet

Learning all the different curves in Battlegrounds is immensely complex. While we try and include as many curves for each hero guide as we can think of, we previously didn’t have a great way to see all Battlegrounds strategies in one place. Recently Minder, a Battlegrounds community member, created a spreadsheet covering all the possible guides in Battlegrounds. It is a fantastic resource, and after some talking, Minder was happy to have us share this with all of you.

The cheat sheet remains free of Ads forever. So feel free to use, share, or recommend it to anyone you think might benefit from this as a resource. Minder, the cheat sheet creator, offers coaching for Battlegrounds and plans to create more content in the future. As a thank you for the work he put in, please give him a follow on Twitter.

The Hero-curves

Three curves for C’thun

For C’thun, a powerful combination uses Jeweled Macaw with Selfless Hero (in the late game) when the Beast tribe is available. Besides that, Acolyte of C’thun and Micro Mummy are the best alternatives to starting with a Token for C’thun with any of the curves below. Curves two & three assume you don’t find a token or no tokens are available in the Battlegrounds lobby.

Battlegrounds Kurtrus Ashfallen Curves

Kurtrus Ashfallen follows one main strategy. The interesting possibility is at the first Ten-gold turn, where it is possible to replace most of your board with stronger units in one go. For more on Kurtrus Ashfallen, take a look at Mewwy’s recent guide.

The Rafaam Curve

The Rafaam Curve was one of the first adjusted curve strategies in Battlegrounds. The key to success is to find the right balance between tempo and collecting pairs. Pairs are highly important, as you can fall far behind when leveling using the Rafaam curve without finding a Triple along the way.

The Great Akazamzarak, or Scamzarak, finds its success through abusing its ability to generate Secrets and setting up pairs to stabilize at Tavern-Tier four.

The Yogg-Saron Curve

To succeed with the Yogg-Saron Curve, you need a token or another economy unit in the initial few rounds. The big weakness of these units is that without a Token or discount Pirate, your curve can’t keep up.

Curves with a goal in Battlegrounds

There are many game-specific curves you can consider when playing Battlegrounds. In the situations below, strong Tier-Three (T3) units refer to Dragons and Mechs. And the Tier-four (T4) units refer to Demons, Mechs, and Quilboar. For the Jeef curve, in particular, your starting units matter. With the Jeef curve, a common start is to pick up a pair of Acolyte of C’Thun or Micro Mummies.

For the Shinese Curve, you prefer heroes that increase consistency. Examples of consistent heroes include Reno Jackson, N’Zoth, Brann Bronzebeard, and Yogg-Saron.

Alternative Battlegrounds strategies

Unusual Battlegrounds strategies

You find yourself with a token triple in the first or second round of your Battlegrounds game on rare occasions. When that happens, being prepared helps you improve your chances of winning the lobby.
