we’re experiencing some technical issues at the moment, and some users will see their content delivery delayed, but this should be resolved fairly soon! – Source
What is Twitch Prime? Well, it’s a rewards program that encourages Twitch users to sign up for Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime gives you benefits when using Amazon, like unlimited free two-day shipping and access to streaming video & music content. If you connect that account to your Twitch account you then have Twitch Prime. Twitch Prime offers a bunch of in-game rewards, and it’s not all just Hearthstone it’s for many other popular games. You also get a free sub that you can use on your favorite Twitch streamer, as well as ad free viewing on the site.
If you haven’t already, you can sign-up for a 30-Day Free Trial and get the Golden Classic Pack for free!
What is the Golden Classic Pack?
It’s pretty much exactly as it sounds! It’s a normal Classic Hearthstone Pack but every card in it is Golden. Now, before you go trying to optimize your Pity Timer and set it up so your next pack gets you a Legendary, you should know that these Golden packs either don’t use a Pity Timer or are on their own separate one. These packs also don’t use the first 10 packs get you a guaranteed Legendary rule, however, they do use the rule regarding card duplication, so if you were lucky enough to get a Legendary in the pack it will be one you don’t currently own.
You can read this all in the fine print from Blizzard’s announcement post:
Offer valid only in regions where Twitch Prime is available. Must own Hearthstone to redeem. Golden Card pack contains Classic cards. These packs use the new pack opening rules regarding duplication protection, but will otherwise have an independent chance of containing Common, Rare, Epic, and Legendary cards unrelated to any special rules (such as a guaranteed Legendary within 10 packs) nor other Hearthstone Sets, including Classic. Each Blizzard account may only redeem one code per promotional item. – Source
