With the release of Hearthstone’s latest expansion, Ashes of Outland, the new demon hunter class has been utterly dominating ladder even after receiving the most immediate nerfs in the game’s history. Since demon hunter decks represent yet another fast, aggressive, and utterly braindead archetype, you may be in need of a new game to play on the porcelain throne without a big purple demon screaming in your face. We’ve got you covered.
5. Teamfight Tactics
If your problem with Hearthstone isn’t the heavy RNG elements, Teamfight Tactics might just be for you. Like Hearthstone Battlegrounds, TFT is a semi-random auto-battler that you can get on mobile to avoid having to download League of Legends along with it. But be careful with this one: the average game length is much longer than a normal Hearthstone game, so make sure you’ve got some seriously crazy shits in the works before you queue up. Or just waste time in your office’s only bathroom while you should be working, that’s cool too.
4. Mobile Legends: Bang Bang
Speaking of League of Legends, you can still play this worse version of the famous MOBA until Riot launches its official LoL mobile app later this year. Mobile Legends quietly added the “bang bang” to its title after losing a $2.9 million lawsuit to Riot’s parent company, Tencent, in 2018. That’s pretty much all you need to know about the game. Hey, maybe Hearthstone will start calling itself Hearthstone Blam Pow after a run-in with the Magic: The Gathering guys.
Officially referred to as nonograms, the game known as “picross” is a number puzzle similar to sudoku aaaand you’ve already stopped reading.
2. Candy Crush
The tried-and-true classic among Karens everywhere, Candy Crush was specifically designed by God to make you miserable. Its premise was entirely stolen from a small indie game called Candyswipe, which is all the same since you hate candy now anyways, especially after having it on the brain while you’re trying to do your business.
1. RAID: Shadow Legends
This article was sponsored by RAID: Shadow Legends, the game with the best, least generic fantasy title ever conceived by humans. We don’t actually know much about RAID aside from the fact that playing it makes us feel like we’ve sold out somehow. Still, at least it doesn’t feel as dirty as playing demon hunter.
