Tavern Brawl: Cart Crash at the Crossroads

8 posts in this topic

kmpjANJ.jpg

This week's Tavern Brawl is a repeat of Cart Crash at the Crossroads. It is a repeat of a relatively new Brawl, and as such is only the second time that we have seen it.

In this Brawl, you are given a preconstructed deck from a Hero of your choice. The important part of your decision is that you will keep the Hero Power of that class for the entire game. After your mulligan, you discover a second Hero. Random cards from that Hero are added to your deck and you play with a hybrid deck from the two characters chosen.

Try to select classes two classes that work well together. Having cards that synergise well with each other will maximize your chances of winning. Cart Crash at the Crossroads is the sixty-fifth Tavern Brawl.

Nothing new, nothing special.

Both RNG and skill based, but also skills still depends on the RNG, because you can't do nothing with bad cards :)

Good brawl for some fun runs, could be annoying if you keep running in to bad RNG, but for me it's good to get those daily quests out of the way!

Ugh... This crap again instead of one of the better brawls. It's not "randomized-card-costs-and-turn-1-Dr. Boom" levels of bad, but if only their decks were radomized with a shred of consistency. but no! Wisp? Check! Angry Chicken? Check! Twin Emperor Vek'lor without C'Thun or any other of his minions in the deck? Check! Shatter but no way to freeze anything? Check!

If you really want to inflict this upon yourself, play hunter. You can win this on hero power damage alone.

Why? Just tell me why. Why can't we have nice brawls? I am so salty right now. 
This isn't a free pack, this is a pack paid for in pain, blood and more pain. This isn't how it started, the brawls used to be a nice period of the week when we had fun. But that all changed when the Crossroad nation attacked. Seriously though, Dark Souls were less frustrating than this brawl.

I do wonder if Blizzard have a record of participation based on each brawl. Surely they would phase out the brawls that people simply don't like.. BUT NO

I snagged a bunch of wins for a daily in a couple of minutes. Get good. Kappa.

I'd rate it in the middle of the pack, as you play somewhat normal game, where your decisions are actually impactful and RNG is not everything. Only a half of everything.

Brawls do feel like a chore now. Maybe it's just us getting old.

      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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      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!
