How to easily view hours played in Hearthstone
View hours played check playtime Hearthstone
Blizzard Games' own launcher, the Battle.net Launcher doesn't keep track of time, including WoW, so it's a bit of a hassle to find out how much time you've spent playing Hearthstone or other games. Some games allow you to view playtime, like Diablo III, but it's only available inside the game. When you are looking for an estimate on how much your play time in Hearthstone is, it's not that easy. On PC, you have to rely on the average game time information you can find online, which we will cover in this guide; of course, while on mobile, you can view the screen time info using the system settings.
How to find out hours played using the average game length in Hearthstone on PC
While on PC, you can keep track of time for games played via Steam, Epic Games, and some of the other launchers, but with Blizzard Games, this isn't the case. You must rely on the average match length and the in-game statistics for battles played. Here is how you can calculate the game time for Hearthstone on PC:
Launch the game.
Click on your Journal or Quest log.
There you can view your number of arena wins and other game modes. If you calculate a 50% win ratio, you must double the number you see.
According to our guide on the average match length in Hearthstone, the basic matches usually last up to 6 minutes, the Battlegrounds about 10 minutes, and the Mercenary game mode takes up to 10-15 minutes.
Here is the calculation: you must take the total number of matches played and multiply it by either 6, 10, or 15 minutes.
- This gives you an average of the total amount of hours played with Hearthstone.
This is the best way you can calculate because none of the third-party websites keep track of playtime for this game. Of course, the average game length you get with the method above is an estimate because control decks could get you faster battle turns, resulting in less time spent in the game.
How to view how many hours you played for Hearthstone on mobile
Blizzard released Hearthstone for smartphones too, and they were not wrong. The game is designed to work well on the smaller screen and is a great choice for gaming on these devices. Now, here is how you can view how many hours you played Hearthstone on mobile:
Open Settings from your home screen.
Find Hearthstone on the list and select it.
Select the "Time spent in-app" option.
- You can now view the time spent in the game for the week or in a daily breakdown.
This is a rather easy way to find out how many hours you played Hearthstone on your phone, whether it's an Android device or an iPhone. It is, however not a suitable method for you if you play the game on multiple devices with one account. To find out how many hours you played, you should refer to the first method described in this guide.
