Oktoberbrawl is an upcoming event that is coming to Hearthstone which will feature some popular Hearthstone streamers as they battle each other to see who’s the better player. Of course, you can help them and participate in this event, but not directly. Here’s the official trailer for the upcoming event.
So, what is this event all about? Well, two teams will be facing each other, but with brand new accounts that don’t have any cards unlocked on them. Of course, they will be getting some packs, and you can help them get more packs so that they can build stronger decks. The idea is pretty simple. There are two card backs, and each of them represents one team, the Call of the Void card back represents Team Void (Dog, Thijs, and J4CKIECHAN) while the Call of the Light card back represents Team Light (Kripparrian, Reynad, and Alliestrasza). The players will then pick their preferred team and equip the card back that represents that team and head into Ranked, where they can win and increase the chances of their team getting more card packs. But there is a catch. See, the only way to get these card backs is by being a Twitch Prime member, which is a shame, since that means that a portion of the player base won’t be able to participate in the Oktoberbrawl, as not everyone has access to Twitch Prime membership.
You can watch your favorite streamers as they try to build the best possible decks out of the small selection of cards that they have access to, and they can only play their Oktoberbrawl deck when they are streaming. The finals will happen at TwitchCon on October 21st, and if you want to read more about the rules of this event, you can check those out on Blizzard’s official post!
