The 100/10 challenge is still the focus of many top Arena players, and they are getting ever closer to completing it. Ratsmah and Hafu have both reached the final run and set new record scores in the process.


In our previous report, we mentioned that Phleetwood was off to a great start in his challenge. He ended up with a score of 73, the second best score at the time, behind Hafu's 85.

Since then, there have been two players score in the nineties. Firstly, Ratsmah retired an ongoing attempt so he could restart with a 12-win Druid. After nine runs in his new attempt, his score stood at 92. At this point there was a chance he could get offered three strong classes he had already played, and he would be allowed to pick one of those. Luck was not on his side however, and he had to choose between either Warrior or Hunter. Warrior is not as bad in general as it was before League of Explorers, but he was only offered two weapons in the entire draft, and he ended up going 1-3 for a final score of 93.

Not to be outdone, Hafu started her 13th attempt at the challenge. For those interested, her full spreadsheet of all her challenge runs can be seen here.

On her 6th run in the challenge she piloted Priest, almost unanimously thought to be the worst class, to an incredible 12-0. This put her on 64 from six runs, and importantly meant she would not have to play Priest again on the whole run. At 90 from nine runs it appeared that she was going to have a very good chance. She took Paladin, and got double Muster for Battle. At 4-1, she took a break to finish the next day due to fatigue. The next day did not go well for her; she quickly had a couple of unlucky matchups and the challenge was over. The Paladin finished 6-3, which gave Hafu a new highest score of 96. In a world where 6-3 is considered a bad result, you can get a feel for how difficult this challenge is, and how well these players are doing.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
