hearthstone Hearthstone: The 100/10 Arena Challenge Explained

If you regularly scour Twitch to find someone new to watch, you'll have noticed a lot of streamers have the phrase "100/10 Challenge" or simply "100/10" in their title. If you are not a regular Arena viewer, you might not know what this is, or the full rules. The short version is that you have to get 100 wins in ten Arena runs. There is more to it than that though.


The 100/10 Challenge was created by Amaz. The rules and the results of his first ever attempt are as follows:

Due to the fact you have to stop when you can no longer complete the challenge, 69 from 8 runs is an excellent score. An average of 8.6.

Many players, including Amaz, have been attempting the run repeatedly since its creation in December, and the rules have evolved slightly. Players are now allowed to retire when they like to restart the run. This means that most players are starting with a 12, or at least a high score with a bad class, more often. Some players are also attempting it in teams, with Arena powerhouses Shadybunny and Jook_ putting up a terrific start of 47 wins from 5 runs (Average 9.4), before coming to a premature end; scoring 2 with a series of unfortunate games with Warrior to finish on 49 from 6.

The current leader, with a ridiculous score of 85 from nine runs, is Hafu. Hafu will be representing Cloud 9 in the upcoming Red Bull Team Brawl. Many top players believe Hafu to be the best Arena player in the world, and as she is still trying the challenge it might be a matter of when, not if, she completes it. For those interested, her scores are listed below. Note that she was allowed to play Paladin twice, as no new class was offered.

Also worthy of note is Phleetwood. At the time of writing, he is on a run of 54 wins from 5 runs. He started with four 12-win runs in a row, and although he fell short of Retrogold's record of five consecutive streamed 12s, he is still in a good position to get a great score. As we have seen however, the challenge is so difficult because one mediocre run makes it almost impossible.

If you happen to think that completing this is not that huge an achievement, be aware that streaming adds a whole new dimension to the challenge. Not only can players be ghosted by viewers, but they are controlling a channel as well as playing Hearthstone.

      The 97th Tavern Brawl is called 'An Ancient Recipe' and it offers players the chance to try out Journey to Un'Goro decks.
      The rules of this Brawl are simple: you choose a hero and you get a premade deck with the Un'Goro deck recipe for that class. The deck archetypes are the following and we even have guides for most of them:
      Quest Druid Dinomancer Hunter Elemental Mage (guide for almost identical deck here) Quest Paladin Quest Priest Quest Rogue Elemental Shaman Quest Warlock Quest Warrior All deck recipes have pretty good winning chances. This is a nice chance to play with cards you don't own and get to know the new Hearthstone expansion better.
