Blizzard Entertainment today announced the Heroic Tavern Brawl for Hearthstone. The mode is aimed at experienced Hearthstone players, offering up more rewards for success. Heroic Tavern Brawl replaces the normal Tavern Brawl for one week and Blizzard hasn't said if it's going to be a regular feature.
"Ready for the ultimate competitive Tavern Brawl experience that will test Hearthstone's best in an all-out battle for glory? If you think you're up to the challenge, get your deck ready and dive into the fray, because Heroic Brawl is coming!" said Blizzard in its announcement post.
First up, you have to pay the entry fee for Heroic Tavern Brawl: $9.99 USD or 1000 gold. Once you've done that, you can build your Standard locked deck for the Brawl. Then you'll face other Heroic Brawlers, aiming to get 12 wins. Take on three losses and you're out for the week!
So what would make players pony up $10? Well, the rewards vary by how many wins you have. If you lose every match, you can score 1 pack of cards. If you happen to go the distance and win every match, you'll score 50 card packs, 1100 Arcane Dust, 1100 gold, and 3 golden legendaries. That's more that $150 worth of stuff, so $10 and a ton of skill can pay off.
There is no given release date for Heroic Tavern Brawl yet.
"We hope that our Heroic Brawl scratches the competitive itch of the players looking for a high risk, high reward experience. Heroic Brawl is coming soon, so keep an eye out for updates," said Blizzard.
