Due to ongoing intermittent issues with server stability and access to Hearthstone for players in Europe last week, Blizzard has awarded two free Classic Hearthstone packs to all accounts in the European region created prior to May 3, 2015.

 

No further comment on the source of the connectivity problems was made, but the two free packs should have been delivered to all players over the last ~24 hours.

 

If you're an EU player and would like to comment on Hearthstone's availability over the affected period, please let us know in the comments.

 

The official post on the subject can be found here.

 

Are Classic card packs the right response to an issue like this? What are your thoughts?

Two free packs is a nice gesture from Blizzard.  I am not an EU player and therefore can't comment on how disruptive the problem was, but I like companies that take initiative and strive to make amends when things go wrong.  Depending on the extent of the problem, two free packs may or may not be enough.  I would also be interested to hear an EU player's perspective.

Received my two packs today. 175 Arcane dust ;-)
I've spend a lot time online last days, and it's been ok with server connection, but nice move from Blizzard that they addressed this at all.

Well, the servers were pretty laggy and somtimes I had to wait for 10 mins. and still not get connected to a game. But i guess 2 card packs makes up for it concidering that they weren't obliged to do that.

Do you know what the ironic thing is?

 

I logged in on my phone to find I had the 2 packs - wasn't sure why but the wife had had them earlier so assumed it was something like the above.

 

Opened the first pack - half way through the second pack I had 2 cards left and I disconnected! 

 

Logged back in - had 8 cards to disenchant and no new cards.  So looks like I lost the two I didn't open!

I didn't notice any lag or anything, but I was pretty happy to see that "someone" had offered me 2 packs, although I didn't know who that was until now smile.png

Yeah, i got my 2 packs too. Thanks a lot for that to Blizzard (sarcasm attached). I was on 7-1 in the arena, with incredible deck. After losing connectivity for the whole day, and finally logged in at the very next day i got my 2 packs, right. For the prize of nulled arena and even nulled deck.

Migrated to Americas after that.

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!

      This new Tavern Brawl features the deck recipes from Rastakhan's Rumble.
      With Rastakhan's Rumble being released last week, we were bound to get a Tavern Brawl like this. So pick a hero and you get the premade Rastakhan's Rumble deck recipe for the class you chose.
      Here are the decks:
      Druid: Feral Frenzy Hunter: Animal Instincts Mage: Power of the Dragonhawk Paladin: Shirvallah's Chosen Priest: Surrender to Madness Rogue: Cursed Crew Shaman: Big Bad Voodoo Warlock: Reckless Ritual (Discard) Warrior: Wings of War (Dragons) Good luck!
