While not everyone is thrilled about this week's Brawl, it certainly does offer something for those who love Arena.
Essentially, this Brawl is a beefier version of Arena, with the main difference being you can craft your own deck from the cards you own. You have to pay 1,000 gold or $9.99 dollars to even participate but you get rewards the better you do. Similar to Arena, you face off against twelve different opponents, hoping to conquer them all. If you can win twelve matches, you are given 50 packs, over 1,000 gold and dust, and three golden Legendaries. However, if you lose three times, you are out and have to start over.
There has already been some backlash to this Brawl, mostly because 1,000 gold or 10 dollars is a steep price to pay, and you only start getting rewards if you've won three matches. The area where you start to break even is around 5 wins, so most players won't even get their money's worth most of the time. Also, because there are around three super powerful constructed decks, many say the whole Brawl will be dominated by them.
