Blizzard offering Hearthstone card back for Fireside Gatherings

Posted on April 21, 2014 AT 08:14am

Blizzard is offering Hearthstone players a chance to earn a new card back just by playing people who are near to them.

From April 26 until an unspecified date players will be able to play people on the same network to earn a new Fireside Friends card back. “This card back can be obtained by playing three matches against another player on the same network.” There are some criteria to meet though:

  • At least three people (including yourself) must be logged into Hearthstone on the same subnet.
  • Each match must be played against a player that is playing on the same subnet as you.
  • These matches can be played against your friends or using the Player Near Me feature, as long as the above two criteria are met.

Players can obtain this card back just by playing with some close friends, but for those who are unable to you can attend one of Blizzard’s new Fireside Gatherings to meet fellow Hearthstone players in your local area, and earn the card back.

“Join us as we celebrate the launch of Hearthstone on iPad by attending a Fireside Gathering.  Fireside Gatherings are get-togethers in public hangouts like coffee shops, book stores, and dorms where you can meet and mingle with local Hearthstone players. Trade strategy secrets, show off your decks, or even host mini tournaments—it’s all up to you! These events range in size from 5-10 people in a small group to 100+ in a huge gathering, and require absolutely no minimum skill level. The more the merrier!”

Head over to the official Battle.net blog to see if there is a Fireside Gathering near you, or for information on how to host your own.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
