    According to the schedule revealed yesterday, there will not be any more card reveals until AFTER this event ends (March 18), so we won't be able to use all the Tuskaroons we were going to earn by voting and commenting on cards. Am I understanding that right?

      The giveaway is part of the event, the event should not end when the giveaway does. I will double check this and get back to you. So you will be able to use Tuskaroons you get later to buy titles and headers still. And after the event, remaining Tuskaroons will be converted to Gold (generic site currency).

    Is this ending on the 18th regardless of whether the final card reveal happens by then?

      Correct. It would be really messy to change the dates for a giveaway, in fact, I don't think you legally can. Not that its super serious, but if we did I'm sure someone could try to mess with us.

      My goal is to get the packs into everyone's hands before the pre-release event happens.

        Speaking of legal stuff, do you still have to make Quebec residents answer a skill testing question?

          That's actually a Canada-wide thing, the skill-testing question! Quebec on the other hand, you need to do a bunch of stuff to legally run a giveaway there which includes but is certainly not limited to:

          • Telling the government about it a month in advance
          • Pay the government a fee based on the value of the giveaway
          • Provide rules in French and English

          This is why they are usually excluded; I won't tell if you don't tell. If the Quebec government wants to take me to court over it, they can be my guest. The only people excluded in our site giveaways are those in China since they can't redeem codes from outside the region, not that we have very many mainland visitors.

          I hate that there is technically a lot of laws that go into giveaway-related stuff. I get it, running lotteries that aren't governed just all become scams and if you look at Twitter or any other social platform, there are all these people running giveaways but never actually give out a prize or "give it out" to another account they own. Man, free followers would be nice!

          I'd love to see better laws around it all. The current ones, IMO, are too restrictive so everyone just ends up operating in a dark grey area since the burden of the overhead in running proper giveaways is too much to deal with. Not that it really matters though since I don't think anyone is actually going to go after someone handing out a $20 steam card or a $50 card pack bundle, lol.

          Sidenote: Back when the old site got acquired by Amazon, we weren't allowed to do any more giveaways which is why that stopped. I don't know how many people actually made that connection, but it was corporate policy at Amazon to require a lengthy process to run any kind of giveaway including legal council so it was seen as too much of a burden. The corporate world sucks the damn soul out of ya.

            And then Amazon sold the site to Fandom?

            Edit: I don't know where I got it into my head that the stq was a Quebec thing. I do recall many contests excluding Quebec. I'll guess this site doesn't bother with the stq with giveaways, since who would report you over a $60 or $100 bundle? And would the government pursue charges over that?

              I grew up in Qc and can confirm ; Quebec is always the (annoying) exception, throughout the country. There's always a legislative nuance  when it comes to that french speaking province - which is also the only reason as to why Canada has 2 official languages.

              I remember having issues with the Amazon Prime free month trial when I lived there.

              Yeah, then Fandom bought and got rid of it all. Morons. I've see a lot of Curse peeps leave over the past few months too which is kinda impressive that Fandom really managed to kill everything that company was worth.

              Gov definitely wouldn't pursue anyone over a small giveaway. If they did, I think Twitch streamers would be in a lot of shit :D

        I've always rated all 135 cards in one sitting, which would likely be after the giveaway ends. Not that there would be a good chance of winning either way. I'm trying to comment in the forum threads for the first time this expansion, so there's that.

          Probably a good call!

          My assumption based on the last expansion is:

          • Weds, March 17 - Final Reveal Stream
          • Friday, March 19 - Start of Pre-release weeekend
          • Tues, March 23 - Expansion launch

          This would give everyone at least 24 hours to finish all their reviews before the giveaway ends, but there definitely isn't much wiggleroom!

            And when would we start seeing card reveals? Feels like forever since Blizzcon.

              Countdowns should arrive this week with reveals starting as well. I don't have any inside confirmation on that, though I guess in fairness I couldn't say if I did anyway, but it lines up with the March 23 release date to start them now.

              If reveals take place this week, we get a final dump Tues or Weds next week and then a client patch that takes us into the pre-release weekend.

              I'm not exactly ready to screw up the sleeping schedule, but let's get to it!

    Is the list updated manually? I think I've got two clues completed.

      If you got it right, you get a pop-up top left saying so and it gets checked on this page. So if that didnt happen, keep searching ;-)
