When we first got a look at the Heroic Tavern Brawl coming to Hearthstone,we weren’t sure it was such a great deal. Sure, you could get a lot for your 1,000 gold/$9.99 investment, but — especially once we learned you were limited to just five runs — there was a much better chance you wouldn’t cover the cost of entry, especially once you saw the kind of top-tier decks you’d be up against.
Blizzard apparently heard about players’
reluctance to give the new mode a whirl. The Heroic Tavern Brawl went live this
past Wednesday, and yesterday the dev team announced a very important change:
Instead of being limited to five runs, you can now take a hundred cracks at the
Brawl, for just the price of one admission. Seeing as how you earn one pack
(see the rewards here) even if you go 0-3, you can easily earn a profit, even
if you don’t win a single game — well, if you could stand to get your face
stomped in 300 times.
You’ll have to purchase your entry before
Sunday night to qualify for the this week’s Brawl, and runs must be completed
by early Monday morning. You can get full details on the changes to the Heroic
Tavern Brawl from the post on Reddit.
