Players impacted by the Hearthstone server meltdown earlier this month have received some compensation for their troubles.
You might recall that the issue cost players up to four days’ worth of progress and may have revealed some interesting things about card rarity in packs. That find aside, Blizzard and Netease, which operates the game in China, have compensated players with 1,000 gold and 15 packs — five each from the Classic set, Old Gods, and Gadgetzan.
The rollback occurred when a power outage struck while servers were down during routine maintenance, Hearthhead reports. Netease attempted to fix the issue without losing players’ data, but the “last resort” of a rollback was eventually the only option.
I suppose it would depend on how much you played and how much you lost, but for me, 15 packs and 1,000 gold would be pretty fair compensation for four lost days of progress. What do you think?
