One Man's Quest To Get Good Enough At Hearthstone To Work At Blizzard

Getting a shot at working on Hearthstone isn't easy. To work on Hearthstone, you have to be pretty freakin' good at Hearthstone.

You also have to have other qualifications to apply for a job at Blizzard, sure:

One Man's Quest To Get Good Enough At Hearthstone To Work At Blizzard

But for Schaard, the requirement that would go on to take the most work was attaining a "legendary" rank in Hearthstone. In this video, Schaard takes you through his journey to become a great Hearthstone player — all so he could eventually apply to work at Blizzard.

It's super-gratifying to see Schaard attain the rank, especially considering that he started out as a player who wasn't particularly great at the game. Unfortunately, by the time Schaard became a legendary player, the position at Blizzard was filled. Boo! Still, it's an amazing story — and who knows, maybe the next time there's an opening, they will keep him in mind.

    Can see a few nasty letters going to Blizzard over that one, ouch.

      "Dear Blizzard,

      Go to Hell. You didn't wait long enough for Schaard to develop his skills before filling the position. This is both unfair and unrealistic.

      Your sincerely,

      Aggrieved YouTube Viewer."
