    Just logged in (EU, after the new patch) and 2 packs were granted from outside of the game (even got a playable epic in Mo'arg Artificer). So they finally arrived for me.

    Yup, just got packs in EU. Veeery slow if you ask me, but at least it worked.

    I wonder if we have to wait for the full 6 weeks for the next two youtube packs :D

    I watched 4 hours with Youtube on a background Chrome tab, muted (because it worked with Twitch), I got nothing. When I looked at the tab occasionally, the video jumped from the last frame to the current broadcast, which was already suspicious.  Not having a way to check our progress really sucks.

    Put your faith in the Light!

    I think it's safe to say everyone got their packs (for those who watched GMs ofc)

    Definitely has more cons compared to twitch drops, but I don't think YouTube has really put much focus on streaming drops yet. Time will tell

    I watched the Asian on day 1 week 1 and did not get any packs yet... Thinking it ddid not count for some reason... Also I actually watch it on full screen even.

    Not going to complain as I did not watch it just for the drops but it kinda sucks

    I'm no expert myself, but I got my packs, so here's a few tips for those who may have watched but didn't get anything;

    - Make sure your account is signed in, and connected to your battlenet ID

    - Drops only work on livestreams. Watching reruns don't count.

    - There's this diamond next to the like and dislike buttons. This will indicate that there are drops, and when you scroll over to it, it should read 'connected', signalling that it is connected to an account

    - Ive searched but cannot find any info on what happens when you minimize the window, mute youtube (itself, and not the website), or otherwise leaving it inactive on your browser tab. I think its fairly safe to assume that something might happen so the best thing is to mute the website (if youre not actively watching), leave it maximized (or active, if you prefer) and go back to it every once a while.

    Kinda complicated in comparison with Twitch don't you think?

    And yes, I did check my settings. twice. It still says connected until now.
    yes, I watched 5-6 hours live stream because the chat is also live when I joined.
    But no, I didn't watch it on focused mode. I leave it hanging in the back muted while playing.

    Still no drops. this makes me feel very discouraged to watch YT streams anymore.

    I followed dapperdogs checklist and this time it worked for me. I'm a few hours into the stream and have already got my first pack.

    Just to be on the safe side, always make sure you are watching "Live" (The circle needs to be red.)

    Small lags can occur that delay you 5 secs and you are no longer watching "Live". So keep checking from time to time if you have the stream muted.

    Is that for the new weekend drops @dapperdog? If that's the case I might as well watch the full 4 hours now(areadly 2 hours in).
