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.

      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      As some of you will know, I've been writing news here at Icy-Veins for over a year. A lot has changed in that year, both personally, and within Hearthstone. I switched from Arena to Constructed with the introduction of Standard, and have started to cast quite a few large events.
      With those things in mind, I've been let loose on writing guides. I won't be touching Sottle's high level content, but instead will be focussing on keep your old decks fresh. I will be updating decks which have dropped out of the meta, and making them playable to somewhere in the region of Rank Five. They will be weaker than the meta decks, but if you have played the older versions you will probably find that you already own many of the cards, and experience, required to play them.
      Hopefully this will fill a gap for some of you. I'll be a little busy for the first few weeks as I get the hang of things and concentrate on producing quality content, but feel free to let me know if there's an archetype you feel has been left out.
