Yesterday, Kripparrian earned the attention of the Hearthstone community by completing an outstanding achievement: he won 106 games in 10 Arena runs!

You might have heard of the 100 in 10 Arena challenge, originally created by Amaz, the owner of Team Archon. The first person to beat it was TwoBiers back in March with his run of 103 games in 10 Arena keys. Afterwards, Twitch and Archon partnered up and made the challenge into an official monthly competition. While it wasn’t widely publicised, another Arena player, Mef, was the second player to complete this challenge two weeks ago – with exactly 100 wins in 10 runs, 9 classes and even a couple of disconnects! Lastly, 23 days ago Woett achieved 202 wins in 20 consecutive Arena runs, a truly insane feat which was recognised by Hearthstone devs on Reddit.

Obviously, most of you know Kripparrian, who isn’t only a popular streamer, but has also earned some significant achievements in other games (like World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Path of Exile and Guild Wars 2). Kripparrian’s popularity rose significantly when he started playing and streaming Hearthstone, while he’s also considered one of the best Arena players in the world.

Kripparrian has stated in the past that he wasn’t going to pursue the official 100 in 10 challenge and yesterday’s triumph was just a personal achievement. Indeed, he only played with 6 classes (Warlock, Rogue, Mage, Shaman, Warrior and Paladin), while the challenge’s rules state that the player should always pick a class that he/she hasn’t played yet.

Still, Kripparrian technically beat the 100 wins in 10 Arena runs part of the whole challenge, since he actually achieved 101 victories in 9 runs (with the total score being 106 in 10). An amazing fact is that for the first 7 runs he had a streak of 12 wins each run! Then, in his 8th run he had a 5-3, followed by another 12-win run and then another 5-3 on his 10th and last run. Here are the lists for his eight 12-win decks:

Kripparrian also completed another personal achievement during his 106 in 10 (or 101 in 9) streak. He achieved a score of 12-0 with all classes in Arena. Warrior was the last class he needed and he succeeded in doing a 12-0 with it during his 4th Arena run. Kripp posted a video about his experience:

You can watch a vod of Kripp’s last 3 runs here. To sum up, while he wasn’t officially participating in the 100 in 10 challenge, Kripparian has set the bar quite high for all other Arena players. We are eager to see what other challenge he will set for himself in the future!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
