One game for a loot box every single day sounds pretty darn generous.

Think about it this way: Each loot box costs 100 gems which is equivalent to a dollar. Blizz is gonna basically give me a dollar every day as long as I play one game, to celebrate their hard work on a game you'll play one way or the other? Yeahhhh. So, ya know - be grateful.

Like Sawzorthn said, it's free ! It's a free bonus., if you like it, good for you, if you don't, then it doen't matter, you don't lose anything.

I just can't get this kind of comments, why always ask for more ? This is a present and there is no such thing as a 'poor' present. Blizzard doen't owe us anything particular for the occasion. So whatever they decide to give away is already nice from them. No matter how cheap it may seem to you....

I agree. Free is free. If they aren't penalizing us, it is all bonus. This actually seems better then the WoW anniversary gifts, and I am unaware of any Hearthstone anniversary gifts, so this is really nice from them.

I agree with you, but I kinda understand where he comes from. Look at Overwatch 1 year anniversary. They're adding an event with a bunch of new skins and maps.

But ass you said, free stuff is free stuff. I'm not complaining either. I think it's awesome that we get free stuff at regular basis. 2.0 was the best thing that ever happened to HotS.

Well, Blizzard does not always have to top their previous performances. It is fine exclusive stuff.

Didn't we just literally get tons of free stuff from the launch of 2.0 and the Nexus Challenge, or have people already forgotten that? :)

Just look at them. Free stuff's being thrown right in their faces, but they just keep asking for more and more. You guys are annoying.

Apparently judging by the comments here, yes people have forgotten.  Blizzard does not have to give you anything especially in a free to play game.  They are celebrating their hard work with HoTS and decided to be nice and give you a free loot box for playing one game.  For those who have heroes at high levels, gaining another level can be many games.  The fact that I can just go and play 1 game, even an A.I. game, to get a loot chest is great.  Free is free and it takes like no effort at all to play one game a day or three games for the other stuff.

3 free boxes - Sounds legit. By the way if I might add..... if you play ranked like I do and win { some of the time } you still get boxes.

Edit 3.0 I thought that was in a form of a question... Ignore me.     . It said so, so yes. I'm just sad ( kinda I mean free stuff IS free ) how they "normiefid" event quests as in the christmas event was play 25 games to get ( was it just a mount? ) Year of the rooster was 25 games ( in their minigame also free 100 gold per game too ) then 2.0 well, if you add it up it's 20 games but I just wish that on the last one it was "WIN 5 games" ( to prevent dumb Ow players from throwing, which I found idiotic....) But now its 3 games to get neat stuff I just wish it was a little higher to make it feel more rewarding.....

Edit. Forgot azoroth event.

Edit 2.0 forgot nexus challenge 1.0 ( which gave some really good stuff, but then you get the same Oni skin by playing 5 in nexus 2.0 )

      Kel'thuzad, Archlich of Naxxramas was revealed as the next Hero to enter the Nexus.
      Check out the latest Gamescom 2017 Hero reveal in our Kel'thuzad preview.
      It started with Hero leaks from reddit, where a user wrote that Kel'thuzad would be coming soon and he was right! Blizzard started releasing various Naxxramas teasers that culminated in the Hero reveal. The animated trailer titled "Obey the Call" mentions "Call of Kel'thuzad". If that's the name of a Warcraft Event, we'll get new skins, bundles - and hopefully - a Warcraft-themed map. Kel'thuzad is a Hero from the Warcraft Universe and in Heroes of the Storm, he will be fulfilling the role of an Assassin.
      All shall feel the touch of despair as the darkest secrets of the Nexus are revealed... Drawn to the immeasurable power found within the Nexus, Kel’thuzad, Archlich of Naxxramas, has turned several of the noblest Heroes against their allies, and he will not stop until all become minions of the cold dark! (Source)
      According to the german fansite Buffed.de, the developers plan to release Kel'thuzad Spotlight this Wednesday (August 23) at 6:00 p.m. CET. Share your thoughts in the comments and don't forget to check the ongoing discussion on reddit.
      Kel'thuzad, Archlich of Naxxramas
      Kel'Thuzad has faithfully served the Lich King both in life and after death. Reanimated as the Archlich of the Scourge and given domain of the Dread Necropolis, Naxxramas, Kel’Thuzad remains Arthas’s most trusted advisor and master of the cold dark.

      Star Lich Kel'thuzad
      What the heroes of this pitiful blue marble fail to understand is the Earth's fate cannot be delayed forever. In the end, the stars will fade and die, and in the cold dark... our empire is eternal.

      Abilities
      In this section you will find Kel'thuzad's abilities. A full list of talents will be added once it is available.
      Trait
      Master of the Cold Dark
      Quest: Gain 1 Blight every time a Hero is Rotted by Frost Nova or hit by Chains of Kel'thuzad. Reward: After gaining 15 Blight, the cooldown of all Basic Abilities is reduced by 2 seconds. Reward: After gaining 30 Blight, gain 75% Spell Power. Blight: 0/30 Primary Abilities
      Death and Decay [Q]
      After 0.5 seconds, launch an orb that explodes upon hitting an enemy, dealing 150 damage to enemies in the area. The explosion leaves behind a pool of decay that lasts 2 seconds, dealing 70 damage every 0.5 seconds to enemies.
      Frost Nova [W]
      Create a nova that explodes after 1 second, dealing 212 damage to enemies inside and Slowing them by 35% for 2.5 seconds. Enemies in the center are Rooted for 1 second.
      Chains of Kel'thuzad [E]
      Launch a chain, dealing 97 damage to the first enemy Hero or Structure hit. For 4 seconds after hitting an enemy, Chains can be reactivated to launch to an additional enemy, pulling both enemies together and Stunning them for 0.5 seconds.
      Heroic Abilities
      Frost Blast [R1]
      Launch a meteor of ice at an enemy Hero. Upon impact, the meteor deals 100 damage to its target and 275 damage to enemies in the area. All enemies hit by Frozen Tomb are Rooted for 1.5 seconds.
      Shadow Fissure [R2]
      Create a fissure anywhere on the Battleground that explodes after 1.5 seconds, dealing 440 damage to enemy Heroes in its area.
      (Source & thank you to @Laragon for mentioning Kel'thuzad being up on the official website).

      Blizzard issued a new round of account suspensions for non-participation - that's going AFK, intentionally dying and refusing to help the team.
      Such behavior is all but helpful and players that ruin gameplay experience for everybody will not remain unpunished.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve issued a new round of account suspensions and bans for players who regularly go AFK, refuse to participate, or intentionally and repeatedly die during their Heroes of the Storm matches. 

      These actions were targeted at players whose in-game performance data, combined with high report volume, clearly shows a consistent lack of contribution to the majority of their matches. In this way, we’re able to take regular and confident action against those who are intentionally harming the in-game experience for others.

      Going AFK, refusing to participate, and intentionally dying are behaviors that ruin the experience for everyone else in a match and undermine the spirit of competition that’s essential to Heroes of the Storm. Taking part in these actions will not be tolerated, and we will continue to suspend and ban players who do. We’d like to thank those of you who use the relevant in-game reporting options when you spot these negative behaviors in your matches, and encourage you to continue doing so.

      The image above is fan art by DanOliveira.
      Gamescom 2017 approaches and Blizzard started teasing what could be the quarters of Naxxramas.
      Redditor Caprificus wrote that the teasers are representing the Arachnid and Military Quarters of Naxxramas. According to the most recent Hero leaks, we're expecting Kel'thuzad to be unveiled soon.
      Teaser #1
      Placeholder for tweet 898591030337040384 Teaser #2
      Placeholder for tweet 898960293048406016 Teaser #3
      Placeholder for tweet 899315130818678785 Another possibility is that we're getting a Naxxramas-themed map in Heroes of the Storm or both teasers could indicate upcoming skins for existing Heroes.
      Naxxramas in World of Warcraft
      Naxxramas was the last 40-player raid added to the game in Patch 1.11 and Kel'thuzad was the final boss.
      Players were able to obtain Tier 3 sets that can now be bought only on the Black Market Auction House and the legendary weapon - Atiesh, that's currently wielded by Khadgar. There were multiple variations of the caster weapon:
      Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (Druid) Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (Mage) Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (Priest) Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (Warlock) The raid was removed in Patch 3.0.2 (Source) and in Wrath of the Lich King it was moved to Northrend and reintroduced as a 10/25-player entry-level raid. (Source)
      Tier 7 sets were heavily inspired by the original Tier 3 sets.
