27.0 Updated Free Decks for New and Returning Players

The decks awarded to new and returning players have been updated with Patch 27.0! New players are eligible for their free deck after completing the tutorial, the Starter Quest chain, graduating from the New Player Ranks (Ranks 40-1), and then returning to the main menu. Returning players who have been away for 90 or more days are eligible for a free deck just for logging in. Returning players can claim these returning decks each time they are eligible.

Players borrow all these decks for one week following their eligibility, so they can try them out before making their choice. It’s possible players may not see their chosen deck in their deck lists if they do not have an open deck slot when they choose their free deck. The cards in the deck (aside from the Core Set cards) will still be added to their Collections. They can clear a deck slot and use the deck codes below to construct the decks.

Each deck includes the cards listed, except for the Core Set cards in them. Core Set cards are free to all players and are earned by leveling your account. Cards may be added to, or removed from, the free Core Set from time to time. Core Set cards are not a permanent part of players’ Collections.

Hi. I returned after a while. Why there’s only six classes for free deck. Are these classes going to change after a while? Or they’re permanent until next expansion?

Who knows?

If I understand correctly, two of the six decks are removed when each new expansion is released. They are replaced with decks that include cards from the previous expansion. Free decks never include cards from the current expansion.

Also, other decks that are not replaced can be modified to include cards from the previous expansion. Also, at rotation, changes are made to allow for changes to the core set.

The six decks are all available as deck recipes, and can be seen by creating a new deck.

So, when titans launched, the free decks were updated to include cards from all standard expansions except titans, so up to FoL. When the next set is launched, we can expect to see some titans cards in the free decks.

How about a free deck for people who actually play the game? Why are you catering to people that play the game for a few weeks and go yeah this card design/grind has gotten nuts and go play Xbox instead. Heck I might take a break for 3 months just so I can eventually enjoy the game again. How does it make sense from a business standpoint to reward people who aren’t invested in your product?

That’s what the rewards track is for.

Feel free to do exactly that. Put the date in your diary, and go play something else for a while.

If blizzard didn’t reward returning players, they would log in, get hammered and never go back. But giving them a free deck (and allowing them to try all 6 decks for a week) means they are more likely to stick around.

Also, free decks never include cards from the current expansion. If you want to upgrade your free deck, you need to spend money.

Buddy that’s not free you’re investing your time or money and that on you.
Or I can take a break for three months look at videos and get the best free deck at the moment. And have way more fun playing the game.

Lol unlike players who stick around and get hammered by unbalanced nonsense. How hype would it be for consistent players to get a reward ticket for one free deck for the next expansion for playing two months in a row.

It’s been hard to be a Blizzard fan these past few years and it would be nice if they gave back to their own community.

True, but the idea is that because regular players play regularly, they will earn rewards, and don’t need to be given them for free. Obviously, I’d like to get more “free” stuff (as well as earned rewards) but unfortunately, that’s not the way it works.

The free decks are an incentive for players to come back to the game, while the rewards track is an incentive to play it regularly. So there’s one incentive for regular players and a different incentive for “returning” players. Its “choose one”, and you can’t have both :frowning:

And absolutely zero appreciation for people who have played and put money into the game for years…Thanks Blizzard…

i lost the access to loaner decks. i didnt play this game for months and after i came back, i completed the apprenticeship then i got a decks to try and keep one of them after a week. but they disappeared after 1-2 days. what should i do?

I was a whale for year’s quit during awful Lich King expansion.

Got an email today for a 40 standard packs, 40 titan packs and a free deck. Logged in to collect them played a few gamss and see game is still a mess.

I guess ill collect another 80 packs and free deck in a few months time again

Hey Blizzard devs. I would like to make a humble suggestion. What about having the new/returning player decks available to regular players as part of a monthly subscription? I don’t have enough money to purchase the $50-$80 dollar lootbox bundles but I could afford 10 dollars a month. It could be like the Twist decks in the shop, but for Standard. Having the chance to play several different classes before choosing one to keep would be the big draw. If Fortnite can have a monthly subscription that gives value to their players, I’m sure you guys can do it too. The players that complain about monetization are ignorant. We need to support the game if we want to keep playing. And the devs should support us, the players, so we continue to enjoy their game.

Hello, i made a tutorial and do not get any free decks… why it work like this?

You should be able to play them, but you can only pick them after x days have passed (you have a timer which shows how long you have to wait)

Until you pick them, you can’t change them, just select them to play

If you don’t see them, click on the arrow to the left, they should be there
