Hearthstone doesn’t work on iPad 1.
Looks like I need to get a new iPad as “iPad 1 simply does not have the hardware required to play Hearthstone.“
After a brief chat with James, I’m a bit more understanding about what Blizzard’s done. Apparently everything comes out for iPad first because it’s just easier to release a version that’s mostly works. iPads are iPads, but there are Samsung Android tablets, Acer Android tablets and so on and so forth so it makes it harder to roll out an “Android ready” release.
I’ll begrudgingly forgive Blizzard for now.
