Update: For Azeroth! Event Temporarily Returns
Our recent “For Azeroth!” in-game event that concluded on Tuesday, March 14, came to an end a few hours earlier than we told you it would. As a result, a number of players who were still racing to unlock their mounts weren’t able to finish the quest in time, and we’d like to make it up to you. We’ve decided to extend the quest by a few days so that everyone has time to complete their games and claim their rewards.
We’ve re-enabled the “For Azeroth!” event quest starting today, March 17, through Sunday, March 26. Any progress you earned prior to the quest’s original March 14 end-date will remain intact.
Your quest is simple: within the allotted time, complete 15 Heroes of the Storm games with a friend as any Hero from the Warcraft universe.
Upon completing this quest, you’ll be handsomely rewarded with sweet in-game loot in both World of Warcraft and Heroes of the Storm. Take the reins of justice in the Nexus astride your Flames of Judgment Charger mount, and tear across Azeroth riding your new Primal Flamesaber.
I'm glad they extended it because of their mistake. They don't usually do that. But why does this snag keep happening? Blizzard consistently has this 'Oops it ended a few hours before we expected' problem. I do my event stuff WAY ahead because of this issue and it is really annoying. This shouldn't be as persistent of an issue as it is.
People had an entire month to get this achievement. I get why they would extend it, but come on. If you couldn't find at least 5 hours out of the 32 days it was available, that's just silly.
I intended to do it last weekend, then lost power. I'm very glad it's been extended!I realize it was my fault for waiting too long, but it would have been done except for the stupid windstorm!
Looks like they wanted more people to install that game
I don't really play HOTS, but if its free and I get stuff for my other game I do play then great! :)I welcome more cool things like this to try out the other offerings by Blizzard.
Agreed. I can't really stand MOBAs in general, but I really enjoy HotS
HotS is a MOBA that depends on skill over items (LoL and DotA with tiems can have one stronger than another easily) where everyone is basically on same level.They chose not to make a LoL/dota clone and they made an enjoyable game.
HotS is a really good game, as someone else said, and I second it, I don't really like Moba's and HotS is the only one I have found to be really good. Maybe its the whole team leveling, no items that can easily put you ahead over everyone and carry. And if you are down in the game a little bit, it's so easy to come back as well if you win 1 team fight late game. Very skill-based.
Epic fail Blizz, promotional stuff is supposed to be limited time and collectible.
And yet I still am waiting to get my twitch title.
Such judgmental attitudes over people caught out by this. If Blizzard says you have until X to do it, people plan or improvise their schedules accordingly, and if it ends early, that's Blizzard's fault, and they are right to extend it. It's none of your business if someone else waited to do it at the last minute (whether for "legitimate" reasons or otherwise). Anyway, it's a game, not a master's thesis, so procrastination is not the least bit irresponsible in this case. What do you care anyway?
