Blizzard and NetEase, however, know what they want to do. The two companies involved with Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft are looking to sue a Chinese developer for cloning the game. The cloned game is called Legend of Crouching Dragon, and it was created by Unico Interactive.
Blizzard and NetEase have claimed that Legend of Crouching Dragon infringes upon their rights, and are subsequently seeking $1.65 million in restitution.

The legal process has already started, whereby both games are still in beta.
