This week's Tavern Brawl appears for the first time and it is called A Dark Recipe.

For the 61st Tavern Brawl, you pick a class and you receive the equivalent Old Gods deck recipe (the third one) for the class you have chosen. This is a great Brawl for new players or for people that don't have all the necessary cards for these decks.

Here are the deck recipes:

  • Warrior: Serve the Old Gods (C'Thun)
  • Shaman: Minion Evolution (Evolve)
  • Rogue: Echoes of Death (Deathrattle/N'Zoth)
  • Paladin: Shields Up! (Divine Shield)
  • Hunter: Whispers of Death (Deathrattle/N'Zoth)
  • Druid: The Ancient Gods (C'Thun)
  • Warlock: Ancient Hordes (Zoo)
  • Mage: Madness and Magic (Yogg)
  • Priest: C'Thun's Clutch (guess what)

It would have been better releasing this Brawl a bit after the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion, instead of right before the new Karazhan adventure. It's still nice, though, that we got a new Brawl, even though it's not a particularly innovative one.

Good luck!

Although it is fun playing with all the WotoG cards as they were intended, it also feels like I am doing a tavern brawl which is almost the same as the metagame...

But for players with less 'disposable' income, it's a great way to see what they could have played the past months :D After the brawl they can move on to a new metagame where all the new cards are relatively free (as long as you make enough gold to purchase the adventures)

A skill-reliant premade brawl? This is what I've been waiting for, I love it. I don't really care that it's not that innovative because blizzard's last inovation killed priest (again). I will definitely try all the recipes. From what I've tried so far, shaman was really fun even though I got Magma Rager from evolving Totem Golem.

Evolve can be hilarious. I had an Evolve inspired lethal with Thing from Below into Antonidas for a fireball-induced finish.

Following this strategy as well, first try them all, to deduct evolve shaman has the most replay value.

Upside of this brawl above meta standard, is the fact you have no dragon warriors, face hunters or pirate warriors mauling your face, only competition is the everlasting zoo lock :)

Everyone I face seems to be playing mage. Luckily they're not very scary with their only threat being Antonidas and shaman has a load of ways to outvalue them.

Players use the mage deck becauss of Yogg-Saron, Hope's End. They want to play that card because it's fun, but they don't want to craft it because it's not as competitive as other legendaries, such as Archmage Antonidas or Sylvanas Windrunner. This brawl gives them a great opportunity to try it without having to craft it, which is pretty cool.

This has to be the most boring brawl ever. It's like you want to take a break from meta game and you end up playing a meta game again.

Is it just me, or are the results of that Old God's cooking a bit all over the place?

Don't change your day job, C'Thoonie!

On the contrary, the brawl is excellent for lower tier and F2P players to try out meta decks they never have the dust to make.

      Competitive Hearthstone fans can look forward to more tournaments and bigger cash payouts in 2018.

      Blizzard announced a set of sweeping changes to the way the HCT Tour will be organized in 2018. The new "Masters System" promises to make it easier than ever for professional Hearthstone players to win prizes and make it out to international events.
      Announced today on the official Hearthstone blog, the Hearthstone Masters System promises to make sweeping changes and improvements to Hearthstone's competitive tournament infrastructure:
      The marquee change to the HCT circuit will be the addition of "Masters Tiers". The rolling total of a player's HCT points for the previous three seasons will determine a player's Masters Tier, and each tier will reward players with increasing benefits. A 3-Star Master, the highest tier, is able to receive a $2500 appearance bonus for attending up to three HCT events per season, which can add up to a $22,500 per year in appearance fees alone! All three tiers will also offer free invitations to monthly online tournaments with cash prizes, as well as "end-of-year commemorative swag", which I can only assume is sweet, exclusive card backs.
       
      Blizzard will also be changing the way that qualification works for HCT Playoff events. Players will automatically qualify for the HCT Playoffs by achieving a single-season HCT Point total. The point total for season one of 2018 is 45 points, but Blizzard noted that this may change based upon the season and region of competition. As part of these changes, HCT Points will now be rewarded for the top three ladder finishes a player posts in each season instead of being handed out each month.
      Players will also be able to qualify for a season's playoffs through the brand new Hearthstone Challengers program, which appears to be a re-branding of the previous Tavern Hero system. Eight players will be able to qualify for the playoffs through the Hearthstone Challengers program each season, but the specific nature of these new qualifying tournaments has yet to be announced.
      In addition to a promising an increased number of HCT tour stops, Blizzard will be giving out additional cash rewards to the top ten Hearthstone teams each season. Each team can lock-in three players per season, and the top ten HCT-point-earning teams on the season will take home a hefty prize. With the prizes for first and second place separated by $3000 per player, this should add a fresh and exciting element of team-focused drama to Hearthstone tournaments in 2018. 

      Though the long-term effects of today's announcement remain to be seen, Blizzard's message of increased commitment to competitive Hearthstone promises to be a massive step forward for the community. A notable increase to the number of competitive events and the size of cash payouts sends a tremendous vote of confidence to members of the competitive Hearthstone scene, and sets 2018 up to be the biggest year in Hearthstone history.

      It was noticed that the Hunter Death Knight's Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from Kobolds & Catacombs. The Hearthstone team is going to amend that in the near future.
      The Build-A-Beast Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from the new K&C expansion and subsequently wouldn't include any new Beasts from future expansions. Mike Donais explained that this was done because of issues with translating the Custom Zombeast cards in all of the languages that Hearthstone is available. Obviously, this caused an outrage during the past weekend.
      Thankfully, Team 6 listened to the community's concerns and they agreed to expand the pool of Beasts, from which you can craft your custom Zombeast. This is going to happen for Kobolds & Catacombs at some point in the future - perhaps after the Christmas vacations. There will also be support for Beasts from future expansions, but some of them may be excluded for balance reasons (like King of Beasts).

      Greetings,

      Many players have noticed that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power does not include any of the new Beasts that were added with the Kobolds & Catacombs expansion.

      Since then, some players have provided constructive feedback regarding the state of Deathstalker Rexxar, and we agreed that a change to the Hero Power was warranted.

      As such, we will be updating Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power to include new Beasts going forward. Please be patient, as this is a fairly complicated endeavor and we may need to start with a smaller change before a more permanent solution is implemented. We don’t have a date for this change to share with you today, but we will provide more information once we have it.

      Please also note that as new Beasts are released, we may need to mark some of them as exempt for various reasons, much like how King of Beasts is currently excluded from the pool of Beasts that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power can pull from. 

      Thank you for providing constructive feedback. We see your love and passion for Hearthstone and believe that the best way to make Hearthstone better is to do so together.

      See you all in the Tavern! (source)
