Year of the Phoenix Packs from YouTube Drops Are Being Rolled Out Now

I know that normally it wouldn’t be newsworthy, but it was one of the most common questions we’ve got recently. This weekend’s Grandmasters 2021 Season 1 opening was the first time Hearthstone drops were activated on YouTube. Players could get up to two packs for watching the stream for 4 hours in total, but… the problem is that no one got them. Many viewers have already clocked in over 4 hours on the first day and they haven’t seen the packs even after the tournament has ended. The rules stated that it might take up to 48 hours, but even 48 hours later – still nothing.

Luckily, you don’t have to wonder and worry anymore – packs are now being rolled out. It seems that so far mostly PC players are getting them, so maybe the drops are somehow tied to the patch (since PC users already got it)? That would honestly be a bit weird, but it means that mobile users should get them within a couple of hours. Or maybe it’s just a coincidence. Either way – they’re here!

I just hope that the next time those packs will be distributed a tiny bit faster – it’s not like waiting a couple of days to open them is a big deal, but people genuinely didn’t know if they will get them this time around.

    Got it, came directly with the mobile patch. Maybe they didn’t have yt drops enabled in the game yet…

    Guys I have a problem… I have played two ranked games and gained no star at all, even though I’m supposed to gain 5 of them ? I restarted and nothing changed… Is someone else having that problem ?

      Wait it’s even weider… basically, if I switch to casual an then back to ranked standard it shows me no star at all, and if i go back and come again it shows me my rank with two stars ( where I was before playing today ). Could it maybe think i lost both? I’m absolutely certain to have won them by a large margin, the opponent exploding, victory screen and all that.

        My quest : “Win 5 ranked games” is at 0/5. Why though ? I’m scared to start another ranked game, what if every game I play count as a loss ? Since my rank doesn’t change at all, i don’t know though…

      It has never happened to me before and I don’t see people reporting it, so it’s probably not a common issue. Maybe you should try making a support ticket?

    Nope. Still haven’t get it yet.
    I even looked twice at YT settings to make sure my account is connected.
