Hearthstone is offering a revamped version of the Heroic Tavern Brawl. Despite the return of the much-loved, highly-competitive game mode, many players are expressing their dissatisfaction with the rewards on offer. They feel the risks do not justify the returns.
Hearthstone has a special mode of play known as the Tavern Brawl which alters every week, introducing players to strange and distinct rules. For successful completion of their first matchup each week, players are awarded a free card pack.
The Heroic Tavern Brawl, also known as the Heroic Brawliseum, is a special Tavern Brawl that typically appears once per expansion. This Brawl presents participants the opportunity to win up to 50 packs, 1100 Gold and Dust, and three Golden Legendary cards. However, attaining these rewards does not come easily – the entrance fee for this Brawl is 1000 gold or $10. To maximize rewards, players must win 12 games before being defeated three times. Additionally, this time, Hearthstone is offering a new skin for the Death Knight class to those who gain at least three victories.
Acquiring the new Ghoul Queen Scarlet skin can be a difficult feat in the Heroic Brawliseum, due to the competitive nature of the mode. Even with a top-tier deck, it can be challenging to come out victorious. As a result, many highly-skilled Hearthstone players purchase entry with in-game currency to reap the rewards.
Players playing Hearthstone have been having problems with the Heroic Brawliseum. The reward structure requires players to win a minimum of 5 games to get back the 1000 Gold they invested. This reward system is not visible in-game, making it difficult for players to make an informed decision on whether to play this competitive game mode. In contrast, Hearthstone’s Rewards Track is shown in-game and allows players to assess the risks and rewards of playing.
The recently released skin has the potential to draw in novices to the Heroic Tavern Brawl, not knowing the difficulty of the event, and consequently losing the gold they have collected before the March of the Lich King mini-set. Many wish that Hearthstone would offer the skin to all buyers of the Heroic Tavern Brawl, even if they fail to win any matches, as a way to encourage them to try it out. At the very least, Hearthstone is giving out a free pack during the Heroic Brawliseum week, so those who choose not to join will not miss out on the usual Tavern Brawl pack.
Hearthstone is now accessible on both Mobile and PC.
