February may be the shortest month of the year, but Blizzard is about to go BIG by giving away hundreds of thousands of packs during its first two weeks.

Team 5 wants to send off the Year of the Mammoth with style and we finally get to find out what the big February event is. Its name is Quest for Packs and you can compete in it merely by completing a single daily quest per day during the first 14 days of February (starting at 17:00 GMT on February 1 and up until 17:00 GMT on February 14).

What are the prizes of this giveway? A single grand prize winner will win 3,000 card packs from the Year of the Mammoth (1,000 Un'Goro, 1,000 KFT, 1,000 K&C), the Lich King's Helm and a Hearthstone Apparel Gift Pack (contains T-shirt, cap and pin). A thousand people will win a Mammoth Card Bundle (more info in the next paragraph). And 50,000 players will receive 3 card packs, one from each of the Year of the Mammoth expansions (Journey to Un'Goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne and Kobolds & Catacombs).

The Mammoth Card Bundle, which will be given to 1,000 lucky winners, can also be purchased only once per account from the Shop for a limited time period. It contains 10 packs from each of the aforementioned Year of the Mammoth expansions. Its price should be at $20.00 or 20.00 EUR.

Make sure to read the rules of this giveaway. This is a worldwide giveway and it's not conducted per region.

In the year of the Mammoth, you embarked on many memorable quests! You explored steamy jungles in search of primordial mysteries in Journey to Un’goro. You embraced the deadly power of the Lich King in Knights of the Frozen Throne. You delved deep into trap-infested tunnels to loot incredible treasures in Kobolds & Catacombs. Now, one last legendary quest remains in the Year of the Mammoth, and the rewards are beyond your wildest dreams!

Introducing the Quest for Packs Sweepstakes!

Everybody loves opening Hearthstone card packs. . . . How would you like a chance to open 3,000 of them?

To celebrate the amazing adventures we had together in the Year of the Mammoth, starting at 17:00 GMT on February 1 and up until 17:00 GMT on February 14, each daily Quest* you complete during the Quest for Packs grants you one entry for a chance to win 3,000 Hearthstone card packs, the Lich King’s helm, and more!

It’s incredibly easy to enter—just log in and complete your daily Quests! That’s it!

Quest for Packs Prizes

The rewards for this quest are very rich indeed! You could win one of these prizes:

Grand Prize – One (1) grand prize winner will receive a prize package including:

  • 3,000 Hearthstone Card Packs – That’s 1,000 packs from each expansion released during the Year of the Mammoth: Journey to Un’goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne, and Kobolds & Catacombs.
  • The Lich King’s Helm - We found it in his desk after his internship ended. Now we’re passing it on to you! Yes, the very same helm worn by the Lich King as he stalked the halls of Blizzard Entertainment could be yours!
  • Hearthstone Apparel Gift Pack- When the crown of Grand Prize Winner grows too heavy, try this t-shirt, cap, and pin on for size!

Mammoth Card Bundle – One thousand (1,000) players will receive a Mammoth Card Bundle containing 10 packs from each expansion released during the Year of the Mammoth.

Mammoth Pack – Fifty thousand (50,000) players will receive three card packs—one from each expansion released during the Year of the Mammoth.

Introducing the Mammoth Card Bundle

To commemorate the Year of the Mammoth, we’re adding a new bundle to the shop! The new Mammoth Card Bundle includes 10 packs from each expansion released during the Year of the Mammoth, for a total of 30 card packs.

You can win a free Mammoth Card Bundle when you Quest for Packs, but for a limited time (starting with the arrival of the upcoming 10.2 Update), you’ll also be able to purchase one.

Purchase is limited to one Mammoth Card Bundle per account.

Please read the rules for eligibility, and happy Hearthstone Questing! We’ll see you in the tavern!

RULES

*Entries limited to a maximum of fourteen (14) per Battle.net account and one (1) entry per day.

It's also quite probable that the February update will go live tomorrow in all regions. This update contains three critical improvements to Ranked Play, as well as the recently announced nerfs to 4 key cards of the current meta.

Well, looks like I enjoy being negative :D

So there will be a total of 51001 players getting something.

One being damn happy.

1000 Being still very happy with getting 30 packs for free.

50000 getting 3 packs. Barely something to mention.

The number of winners is fu..ing small compared to the number of players hearthstone has. I know not everyone can win but at the end of this "event" <- lol ... there will be thousands of frustrated players who got nothing. Even the player who get three packs will be very disappointed.

This means they are just teasing the vast majority to buy the cheap bundle pack (which will be really ok for about 20$/€) but at least a 1 pack for participating would have been a good move. Doing things like this is just showing the most players other ppl getting things while they get nothing but were hoping for 2 weeks.

Additionally it hurts everyone who is F2P or not spending too much on the game by forcing them to complete low gold quest instead of keeping and replacing them.

The damn majority of the players are just losing with this event.

Having to do exactly 1 quest per day for a slim chance to get 3 packs? No, thank you.

And paying 20 bucks for 30 packs is still way too much imo.

 

But well, since it is totally free maybe some players will find it fun to try it.

Personally thumb down, but generally spoken: Every event is way better then nothing, that's why thumb up.

Like others said... 3000 packs is just exhausting. Like lets say it takes 5 seconds to open a pack, which is a blistering pace barely seeing what you even open, that will take 4 hours and 10 minutes. Did blizzard even think that through? There better be an improved process for the winner.

The worst thing that could happen is they open 3000 packs, and still are unable to make a top meta deck for all 9 classes. That would be blizzard's nightmare.

Blizzard, fyi, I’m fine with spending 4 hours opening packs. :D

And you’d be able to make any and all top meta decks in any format with the dust gained. If your collection is decent sized already you’d likely be able to craft a complete card collection in fact.

You say it like it is a hard thing to do. If you pplay the game enough, 1 quest per day is easy to do.

With approximately 20-40 dust worth of cards in each pack, that's a whole lot of dust!

For me it is.

Since I don't play HS at least 3 days out of 7. Just log in to switch quests to easy to complete quests.

And on most other days I just try to complete the quests asap.

Doesn’t feel like it after a run of packs with four commons and a rare, but average dust per pack is about 100. So it’s a whole lot more than a whole lot of dust!

It should be a bit more than 100 dust per pack if you dust everything. So 3k packs would be a bit more than 300k dust, lets rund it up to 320k (what are 20k dust? :D) with that you can craft 200 legendary cards :D You should be good for a while, I guess :D

Wow, feels great being a second-class customer. Apparently being from Brazil makes me unworthy of having some privileges granted to 

UNITED STATES, AUSTRIA, BELARUS, BELGIUM, BULGARIA, CANADA, CHILE, CROATIA, CZECH REPUBLIC, DENMARK, EGYPT, ESTONIA, FINLAND, FRANCE, GERMANY, GREECE, HUNGARY, ICELAND, IRELAND, ISRAEL, ITALY, KAZAKHSTAN, LATVIA, LITHUANIA, LUXEMBOURG, MALTA, THE NETHERLANDS, NORWAY, PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, POLAND, PORTUGAL, QATAR, ROMANIA, RUSSIA, SERBIA, SINGAPORE, SLOVAKIA, SLOVENIA, SOUTH AFRICA, SOUTH KOREA, SPAIN, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND, TAIWAN, TUNISIA, TURKEY, UKRAINE, AND THE UNITED KINGDOM.

That's it, I'm done with Blizzard. Tired of not being treated like a valued customer, clearly my money isn't appreciated, so I won't be giving it away any longer. And of course the advertisement for the promotion DOES show up on my client, because why not rub it in my face, right? Just overall great decisions from a great, competent team.

As far as I know this is not Blizzards fault.

A lot of countries have rules against those sweepstakes. Maybe you can check the laws/rules of your country.

But it's still understandable that you are upset.

I'm sure that despite of any laws the money they're receiving from me is still helping to fund packs that are going for other countries players. 

I'm sure that if they wanted to, if there even is a law here prohibiting this particular promotion, they could work around it and still give us some love. But again and again Brazil (and I'm sure many other countries) doesn't get included in promotions. They create whole new ways of purchasing packs/dust in China to work around laws there, so it's not like they wouldn't do it for ethical reasons or something like that.

Clearly this isn't bothering them, they're not even considering this as a problem, given that it keeps happening. Not even a statement explaining.

If their intention was to drive me away from their game, good job, I'm taking as many friends as possible with me.

I totally understand you. As you can read in my first post in this topic here I mentioned that I think this while promotion is bad.

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
