Hearthstone FIreside Brawl against the LIch King

An interesting battle took place at Gamescom featuring Hearthstone. The card-based free mmo didn't have any major announcements due to their last expansion being released only a few weeks ago. Still, attendees got to partake in a Hearthstone Fireside Brawl against the mighty Lich King himself. All told, it took 10,000 players to finally bring him down.

The mechanics of the Hearthstone Fireside Brawl against the Lick King were pretty interesting. Players pick a class and are given a premade deck. They start off with 10 mana and 20 health, but the Lich King boasted a full million hit points. Gamers could play in pairs, and as soon as one player was defeated, their buddy could pick a class and continue the fight. Once the second player is defeated, the board is wiped for the next opponent. Overall, the Lich King fielded some very powerful cards, some of which were created just for this Hearthstone Fireside Brawl.

Besides the Lich King epic struggle, mmo players also got treated to the new Hearthstone Hearth and Home animated short. This video features Ava, a young girl, who finds herself whisked into the mysterious, and dancing and singing-crazy, tavern. Blizzard notes,"Harth Stonebrew’s tavern is a special place. If you strolled among the packed tables and raucous laughter on a busy night, you’d overhear stories of exhausting travel and perilous adventure—and of lucky voyagers somehow finding the tavern just when they needed it the most.

For the colorful cast of characters who call it home, the tavern is more than just a place to put up their feet or toss back a tasty brew. For them, it’s where the magic of hospitality fills the air, and good times are shared by everyone who happens through the door. In the tavern, the joy of the unexpected or the thrill of competition can be found at any hour."

It seems that the Hearthstone Hearth and Home animated short is just the beginning for Ava and the other denizens of the tavern. Blizzard says that players can expect more videos and comics featuring these characters in the future.
