The Hearthstone Grandmasters Season 1 playoffs will kick off this weekend and viewers can earn free card packs during all the action.
How to get free Hearthstone card packs
From Friday to Sunday, Hearthstone fans can visit one of the official Hearthstone channels and watch the live broadcast. After watching two hours of live content, a viewer will earn their first Fractured in Alterac Valley card pack. Tuning in for two more hours will result in another card pack. The time watched will be cumulative during the Hearthstone Grandmasters Season 1 playoffs, which means viewers don’t have to watch four full hours in one sitting.
To get started, a viewer must head over to the “Connected Apps” section on YouTube. Then, they must press the “Connect” button located next to Battle.net. After following the simple instructions, one’s YouTube and Battle.net accounts will be connected and eligible to receive drops. While connecting these accounts, a viewer should also make sure to be logged into their Blizzard one.
