It’s been an ugly month in Hearthstone’s neck of the woods — and it’s only getting worse. Community outcry over what it’s seeing as stingy and greedy business tactics with the game’s revised reward structure and new its Tavern Pass system are sparking riots and protests pretty much anywhere that Hearthstone and its studio rears its head.to quietly pull the announcement and cancel the AMA.
And over at the game’s Reddit, a full-blown Hearthstone revolt is raging up and down the posts with players condemning “Blizzard Greed” and publicly quitting.
