Bare in mind that there might be server delays due to user overflow. So don’t panic if it takes you some minutes to enter the game. Furthermore, expansion patches and new cards usually come with some unwanted interactions. If you are experiencing bugs or crashes, make sure you check the forums to see if they are included in the Known Issues thread.

One last Hearthstone tip before the expansion launches

Expansion launches are a crucial time for free-to-play Hearthstone players, and I would like to share with you some advice before you enter Castle Nathria. If you have limited resources, don’t rush into crafting cards or archetypes. The meta will be very volatile, and every investment it’s a risky investment.

Here there is a list of tips for you to manage your collection wisely and don’t make the mistakes I once made.

That is all for now, but I expect to see all of you at Castle Natrhia when the latest Hearthstone expansion launches. Naxx out?
