It looks like streaming multiboxed Hearthstone is going to become a regular occurrence, with both Rdu and Thijs streaming it in the last couple of days. Playing all three available servers at the same time helps the top players reach legend on all three faster. In turn, this helps their World Championship efforts, by giving them multiple chances to reach the top 100 and earn valuable World Championship Points.


The first player to multibox Hearthstone on stream was Dog, over 6 months ago. The popularity of that stream led him to make this Reddit post on how to do it. Ryzen has also streamed three servers at once, choosing the daunting task of playing Oil Rogue, Mill Rogue, and Miracle Rogue simultaneously.

Other than those two novelties, however, multiboxing had not been very common, until Rdu streamed his ladder climb on all three servers on Saturday. This struck more of a chord with top players, as they realised it would speed up the early season grind.

On Sunday, Thijs also streamed all three servers at once, gathering many likes and retweets on Twitter. It seems that people are enjoying watching the multiboxing, and that it servers a purpose for the pros. It seems likely that we will see more of this at the start of every month.

      Starting first is often seen as better than going second, in spite of the extra card and The Coin that you receive at the start of the game. This is due to the loss of tempo from the missing mana. Although the difference in win rates is quite small, it still can be felt, especially in Aggro vs Aggro matchups, where going first results in a significant advantage.
      Who goes first is decided by quite literally a coin flip—it is decided randomly, visualised by a coin toss. There is no way to affect whether you go first or second. However, you can mitigate the effects of the coin toss by playing a deck that is not affected as much by going first or second.

      Both players get to play as Deathstalker Rexxar, the Hunter Death Knight!
      It's time to experience how powerful Deathstalker Rexxar is; the hero card is, after all, included in some of the best decks of the current meta like Spell and Recruit Hunter.
      The Hero Power is free in this Tavern Brawl, so you can use it all you want. It's better to use it first on your turn and it really tests your skill as you need to craft the proper Zombeast for the situation you are in. Your deck will also be filled with various random Zombeasts, as well as Hunter cards. Lastly, you will start at 3 mana.
      Games can last long and your hand will be quite full most of the time, so be careful not to overdraw.
      This Tavern Brawl is part of the Taverns of Time event. Good luck!
