Blizzard anno9unced an increase for Hearthstone pack prices across all platforms for African, Middle Eastern and European players. The increase kicks in on March 22nd, and Hearthstone players are up in arms about the increase.
"We’d like to let everyone know that we’ll soon be adjusting the pricing of Hearthstone purchases made through the PC, Mac and Android clients, and through the Battle.net Shop. We regularly look at our pricing around the world, and from time to time we make changes such as these to align with local and regional market conditions. The price of the Un’Goro prelaunch bundle offer will not be affected by this change and will remain the same until launch," announced Blizzard on the Hearthstone Forum.
Hearthstone players have detailed the before and after prices, as well as compared the different regions, and it's quit the price hike. You can check out the comparisons here and here. So far, it looks like at least a 20%+ increase for UK players, which is a bit steep. I don't know what SA Hearthstone players paid before, but here are your new Android pack prices.
