Heathstone’s latest patch is one of its biggest yet. With the newest update comes Tavern Brawl, a new game mode that adds a unique layer of depth to competition.
Much like SMITE’s custom game-of-the-week, the new game mode pits players against each other in head-to-head competitions that utilize custom rules and mechanics. Blizzard highlights the mode in a post on battle.net. They write:
Each week, a different Tavern Brawl will pit you head to head versus another player using exciting and unique rules. One week might feature preset decks, while another week could have you crafting a brand new Tavern Brawl deck following specific guidelines, while others might offer buffs to specific minion types—who knows!
Tavern Brawl can be found below the Play, Solo Adventures, and the Arena buttons on the main Hearthstone screen. You may have to toughen up before entering the fray—Tavern Brawl is unlocked once a player has a level 20 Hero.
The possibilities for fun inside Tavern Brawl are endless— the only thing you should expect is the unexpected!
Blizzard also encourages players to play with friends. The new brawl mode will feature a friends list feature, allowing players to challenge buddies to one-on-one skirmishes.
