Hearthstone EU players to get free cards

Blizzard makes amends for unstable connections

Blizzard has responded to reports of connection issues in card battler Hearthstone's European territories with free packs for current players.

"We know access to Hearthstone in Europe was spotty last week. Sorry about that, and we really appreciate your patience as we worked to get the tavern back into shape," said Blizzard.

"As a thank-you for bearing with us, ALL Hearthstone accounts in the European Hearthstone region created prior to May 3, 2015 will enjoy two free Classic Hearthstone card packs, free of charge."

The card packs have no expiry dates.

At last count Hearthstone had around 235 million registered players across the globe.
