Last week was a bit shit for EU Hearthstone players. As reported by PC Gamer, server problems and lag really made it a pain in the arse to play, and some players even dropped out of their games early, resulting in them being counted as a loss.
As an apology for this, Blizzard has announced that every player in the EU whose account was made before May 3 will receive two of the original packs for free.
“We know access to Hearthstone in Europe was spotty last week. Sorry about that, and we really appreciate your patience as we worked to get the tavern back into shape.
As a thank-you for bearing with us, ALL Hearthstone accounts in the European Hearthstone region created prior to May 3, 2015 will enjoy two free Classic Hearthstone card packs, free of charge.
Just log in to Hearthstone at your convenience to find your card packs in the “Open Packs” section. No need to rush; these packs never expire.
Note: It may take up to 24 hours before your packs will appear.”
I didn’t even play Hearthstone last week, but I like freebies so I for one gladly accept Blizzard’s apology.
