The Supreme Lich King was defeated earlier today at Gamescom. He was the final boss of Hearthstone's very first Raid!

After the new Fireside Gathering features were announced, it was time to see them in action! You all know that Gamescom is taking place this week and Blizzard has prepared many reveals and surprises. As far as Hearthstone is concerned, we got to see the new Fireside Brawl, a special Tavern Brawl that is available only during Fireside Gatherings.

Everyone present in Gamescom had the chance to battle against the 1 million health Supreme Lich King! During this Brawl, you choose a hero and you are given a deck. Your hero starts at 9 mana and 20 health. When your hero dies, you discover a second hero and you are given a new deck and so on. Your total damage to the Lich King is shown at a scoreboard, after you defeat him. Obviously, the goal is for everyone participating in the gathering to work together to defeat him.

The Brawl seems to scale depending on how many people are present. It also features several Brawl-specific cards and hero powers. You can get a better feel of it by watching this detailed video by Thijs:

Apparently, the Lich King cannot be destroyed by summoning the 4 Horsemen from Uther of the Ebon Blade's hero power, as Amnesiac and Trump discovered.

The Supreme Lich King was defeated today, Wednesday the 23rd of August. The participants in this Brawl actually got physical rewards, too, as you can see in this clip with Hafu and Dog (language warning).

What do you think about this new Fireside Gathering feature?

      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!
