a bit poor... dont you guys think? They could have added new skins or mounts 

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.

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 )

      Harvest the terror's seeds or watch them grow to become your ruin in this week's brawl!
      The weekly brawl is a best-of-three-Arena match with shuffle pick and the objective is to collect 100 seeds to win a round. All players start at level 10 and will be asked to pick a Heroic ability. No other talents are available. There's a small chance of all players being the same Hero. Complete three matches to earn a Loot Chest.

      This week's Heroes Brawl mode is Garden Arena: a best-of-three Arena match featuring the Garden Terror and its Shamblers. Gather seeds and overrun the enemies’ core with the power of nature!

      Rules:
      Choose from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Arena. Be quick about it though, you only have 30 seconds to choose! Everyone will begin the round at level 10 and will be asked to choose a Heroic Ability. No other talents will be available. During each round, slay the enemy team’s Heroes and capture Seeds from the Garden Terror and its Shamblers. The first team to gather 100 Seeds wins the round! The first team to win two rounds will claim victory! Rewards:
      Complete two matches of Garden Arena to earn a Fall of King's Crest Chest! Find out more about the Heroes Brawl game mode on our Heroes Brawl site; and as always, you can find more information on this week’s Brawl by clicking the Brawl Info button at the bottom of the play screen when preparing to queue for this exciting new game mode.

      Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 patch. The goal of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Meta picks
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Anub'arak↑↑ — — — — — — — Diablo (ban)↑               Garrosh (ban)↑                
      High-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer E.T.C. (ban) Artanis↑ Varian(ban) Genji (ban)↓ Raynor (ban) Jaina — Ana Mal'Ganis (ban)↓     Zeratul   Kael'thas   Malfurion               Tyrande↓  
      Mid-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Arthas Dehaka (ban) Alarak Tracer (ban) Cassia↓  Azmodan Abathur Alexstrasza Blaze Imperius (new) Kerrigan   Falstad↑ Gul'dan Zarya Auriel Johanna Sonya↓ Maiev   Fenix↓ Junkrat   Brightwing Muradin Yrel Malthael   Greymane Kel'Thuzad    Kharazim Stitches (ban)   Ragnaros   Hanzo (ban) Li-Ming-   Li Li Varian   Thrall   Lunara Mephisto   Lt. Morales↑     Varian   Sgt.Hammer (ban) Nazeebo   Lúcio↑         Tychus Orphea (ban)   Rehgar         Zul'jin Sylvanas   Stukov           Zagara   Whitemane↓  
      Low-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer — Chen Gazlowe Valeera Valla Chromie Medivh (ban) Deckard↓    D.Va Murky     Probius         The Butcher            
      Situational picks (map, team composition, or counterpick)
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Cho'gall (ban) Leoric Illidan Nova — Cho'gall (ban) Tassadar Uther (ban) Tyrael Rexxar Xul Samuro     The Lost Vikings (ban)    
      Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
      Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
      Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
      Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the January patch!
