Hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Cloneball

6 posts in this topic

This week's Tavern Brawl is called "Cloneball". It is the 52nd Tavern Brawl.

In Cloneball, each player picks a class, and is given a deck with random Legendary cards cloned four times. Each player also gets a card called Offensive Play which allows the next Legendary you play, and all copies of it, to be played for 3 less mana.

Although I am generally a fan of Brawls where you don't have to use your own cards, I don't feel that this particular one is one of their best efforts. Many games seem to come down to one player having a cheap legendary such as a Millhouse Manastorm (Which, by the way, has virtually no downside in this Brawl), while the other player sits unable to do anything. It should still make for some amusing moments, but I suspect that many players will find it too frustrating for much repeat play.

This is hands-down the most irritating and pointless Tavern Brawl they've done.  It's just like "We rolled a dice.  There is no strategy whatsoever.  You lose."  There's NO BALANCE AT ALL.

Blizzard: at the point at which I'm only playing the brawl for the pack, and for no other reason, and even with that carrot I still don't want to play, you're doing it wrong.  Wrong on roller skates.  Wrong on stilts.  Wrong in a cheap suit.  Thinking up ways of describing how wrong you've been is more fun that playing your wrong brawl.  Keep the pack.  I don't need it this badly.

I played a handful of games and it seems I either completely destroy my opponent or they completely destroy me.  Not very many competitive games.

I did have an interesting match where I used the Offensive Play to throw out a couple of Lorewalker Chos.   It escalated pretty quickly as my opponent couldn't remove them right away and we took turns flooding each other with more Offensive Play cards and Coins.

Other than that, its been kind of meh...

This is pure RNG and nonsense brawl, but Hogger is good in this brawl, so, I like the brawl. Anyway, the player who draws Offensive Play as first will win. It's like, the player who drops the first midrange or big legendary almost always wins.

Apparently Millhouse Manastorm took a break from riding your opponent's Piloted Shredders and decided to walk on foot instead. 

Brawl has a cool idea behind it but doesn't work. Thanks for a free pack.

This brawl is a load of bullshit. Just waiting until you're the one that gets lucky and collect the pack, then never touch the brawl again.

      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!
