How to earn Hearthstone card packs
During the Twitch livestream, viewers can earn two United in Stormwind card packs between Between 11:30 a.m ET and 1 p.m. ET. Viewers must watch 15 minutes of any channel that is streaming Hearthstone to earn their first card pack. To earn another one, viewers must watch the stream for another 15 minutes.
A drop will not be received automatically. Instead, participants must either visit the Drops Inventory section or claim the drop on the live streaming channel. This must be done within the first 24 hours of earning the Twitch drop.
Twitch viewers can still earn rewards before they connect their account to Battle.net. They will expire in seven days if the accounts are not linked.
In order to link accounts, a user must go to the settings section on Twitch and click the connections tab. They must then press the connect button located and follow the prompts. Users should ensure that they are already logged into their Battle.net account.
While players anticipate the Hearthstone Mercenaries showcase, they can also look forward to the upcoming Hearthstone Masters Tour Silvermoon tournament and weekly Hearthstone Grandmasters 2021 Season 2 matches.
These games feature top competitors who are duking it out within the United in Stormwind expansion.
