No. It's not a "Let's Play" series, but meant as in "let us start playing again or start playing hearthstone overall".
Playing alone ranked/arena starts to get boring when you don't have an opponent to chat with or to compete with for the best deck build. Hell, could even help each other and just grind quest rewards instead of stressing yourself out because you can't get those 5 Mage wins to get the 60 gold you need to finally enter Arena.
Is it P2W? Maybe, if you are looking for that instantaneous gratification when you launch the game the first time. But the sad truth is you will still suck major balls and won't get past rank 20 even with all the available cards because you have no idea how the game works. Kind of like when you get instant lvl 90 boost in WoW for a class and race you haven't heard of or even touched in your lifetime and it takes time to get used to it and work around all the details, except it takes longer in Hearthstone for the average folk. By the time you get a grasp of it you will have majority, if not all, the cards you need to compete for the place in Legendary rankings (assuming you stick to one class because you might have to sacrifice other good cards from other classes to craft the specific card you need for yours).
