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.
