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 )
