(Live Now) “Crab Rave” Coming Later Today With Pre-Order Bundle Giveaways & Twitch Drops

Update: Looks like it’s live! You can tune to the stream here.

Update #2: Bundle giveaways are done by posting codes on chat, so you need to be real quick to grab them. They seem to be dropping every 10 minutes or so, and the entire “rave” lasts until 5 PM PDT, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to pick them up.

What I initially thought was just a clever joke on social media turns out to be… real? Yes, there’s a “Crab Rave” coming later today – at 9 AM PDT (18:00 CEST) to be more precise. Hearthstone social media have doubled down and people at Blizzard also confirmed that it is, in fact, a real event.

Apparently, the official PlayHearthstone Twitch channel will play Hearthstone remixes and do giveaways. Twitch drops will also be active once again, so you will be able to get a free pack if you tune in.

What exactly will it look like – I have no idea. But it sounds like it might be a pretty fun event, so be sure to tune in yourself.

      I’ve watched for the first 30 minutes and there were three of them.

      Later I’ve seen them asking “show us how much you like Bob, we’ll pick one winner and give them a code” or something like that. Maybe they switched from just posting codes to those “mini-giveaways”, I’m not sure.

    Extra 1 or 2 packs for Sunken City is always good. Coming especially from reliable platform such as twitter. Another pack from arena rotation, another from Mercenary class pack and another golden pack from BoM really helps.

    I was hoping that the end of season will rewards packs from Sunken City, but too bad.
    But the news hit far too late. And probably a bad day to do such events on Monday.
    I hope I can watch, and probably lucky enough to get a free giveaway bundle. Probably.

      *Twitch not Twitter. Elon should hurry up and remove the ‘w’ from Twitter. Finger crossed.
