I've opt'ed in with bnet, but that was 3 weeks ago and still nothing.
Is Giant Bomb going to be having a giveaway possibly? That'd be a great idea.

Excellent first post, Hearthstone is awesome by the way.

Blizzard is giving away passes on Facebook and it's causing a bit of a shitstorm because people who have been opted in for months now are getting passed up in favour of random facebook idiots.

It'll be out in a month and seeing how they will be wiping everyone's progress, I'm fine not being in, I'd rather not go through all that leveling stuff twice.

Reminder - although this thread isn't exactly soliciting the GB community for beta keys, any such behavior will lead to this thread being locked.

I hear Brad has a bunch. You should probably ask him on twitter. If he doesn't give you one, just keep trying. He'll eventually respect your dedication and give you a key.

Yeah the Hearthstone beta key give away stuff is really generating a lot of angry kids on message boards and twitter, seems to be a really vitriolic community.

PCGamer will be giving away 300 ish on friday at some point, JeuxVideo gave away 650 keys yesterday and I assume a popular german gaming website gave a similar amount of keys away this week. My guess is other language sites will get keys soon also.

Best bet is probably PCGamer or that dumb facebook competition.

Does that work? I think Giant Bomb should give away free new cars as well. That'd also be a great idea *wink* *wink*.

Thanks a lot for the info everyone. Much thanks.

@Benny I tried the PC Gamer one, but I think I got to it too late so I'll needa check up later.

In the meanwhile, I found a helpful site that posts about some ongoing giveaways or contests. If I'm allowed to post it?

I edited out that link...it was a warez site complete with a link to a keygen right on the home page. You are on thin ice here, I suggest you read the rules and tread very carefully.

@joshwent: Waaaait what? lol are you messing with me? .___.

@mb:

Sorry. Thanks for editing that out for me. Much appreciated.

Honestly, if you search Hearthstone on twitter you'll see people talking about giveaways. Just be careful. There's a tonne of scams going around. And odds are you're not gonna win anything so don't get your hopes up.
But hey, otherwise happy hunting dude! Just one more person to compete against for the golden key.

Anyways, watch some twitch streams, they tend to have some giveaways every now and then and will tell you so in the titles. However, it sounds like they are going to do a data wipe in the next few weeks and more than likely the open beta very soon after that. My guess has been for a while: wipe sometime in mid to late October, open beta in early November, launch in December. Of course that's just guess work.

I have an extra beta key, but I don't want to necessarily give it away in case that key is also tied to my secondary account :(

Well, I just so happened to notice this thread then notice this on Twitter:

So, good luck?

Can I legally name my next child Hearthstone to earn a key?
