Blizzard provides compensation after nerfing £20 ‘Hearthstone’ card

New update to Blizzard’s popular online card game Hearthstone Powered down a card that sold for £20 ($25) in recent April.

The card in question is the diamond variant of Drek’Thar. Prior to patch 23.2.2, its warrior could summon two minions from the player’s deck, but this has now been reduced to one, making it a much less lucrative card.

While this is often a cause for outrage, Blizzard has been generous in compensating players who purchased the card for its original effect. Card holders will each receive 3,000 gold when they log into the game next time (which is the price of the card in gold) and they also get to keep the card for free. In addition, the card is eligible for a “dust cashback,” which allows players to exchange the card for “mystery dust” in-game currency with eligibility that lasts for two weeks.

Players who have spent real money instead of gold on the cards are out of luck, even if the values ​​are equal. However, most players seemed satisfied with Blizzard’s response, feeling that it was a fair compromise.

Multi-Strike and Dragonbane Shot have also been nerfed, and both are eligible for a refund. Meanwhile, a total of 19 cards have received incentives, along with a Hero change and numerous Minion changes.

Hearthstone was originally released in 2014, and is set in the iconic Blizzard Warcraft universe, expanding upon the established lore and featuring familiar characters and relics from the franchise. The game has been a huge success, with a total of 100 million registered players in 2018. It is playable on PC, iOS, and Android.
