Blizzard Bringing Competitive Heroic Brawl To Hearthstone, Offers Substantial Prizes

If climbing up the ranked ladder bores you, and Arena has gotten stale, Hearthstone will soon have a new challenge for you to try. The Heroic Brawl is coming soon, tasking players with building their best decks and taking on all comers in an Arena-styled competition with big risks and big rewards.

To participate in a Heroic Brawl, players will need to build a single Standard deck that cannot be changed during the length of a Brawl. Then, just like in the Arena, they'll play until they beat 12 opponents or lose three times and collect their rewards, which can be significant: "50 packs, a heap of Gold, piles of Arcane Dust, and three golden Legendaries sit at the end of the 12-win rainbow."

With greater prizes comes greater entry cost: Access to a Heroic Brawl will cost 1,000 gold or $9.99. You can compete in multiple runs, though the blog article doesn't state how many. The Heroic Brawl will take place over the typical time frame of a normal Tavern Brawl (typically Wednesday through Sunday) and Blizzard will monitor the feedback to determine how to bring the Heroic Brawl back in the future.

Why pay to play this mode. Just play rank its the same thing.
The rewards is also shit, if u can get 12 win u don't need those packs.

Now this is why I like blizzard entertainment. I know they make mistakes time to time but they aren't like all the other BS companies who make garbage games. They are one of the few companies who actually put effort into their games which is why I wouldn't mind playing some of their games. I'm not saying all their games are good in my opinion but the ones I like would probably be the ones I'd play. And for the people who say it's not possible to play hearthstone without spending irl money then sucks for you because it is to possible if you actually put effort into the game and customize your decks.

This seems a new style for TCGs (or is it CCGs for heathstone), is it something you have seen before?
