This week’s Hearthstone Tavern Brawl is offering a free Journey to Un’Goro card pack
Normally, Hearthstone players who manage to secure a victory in each of the game’s weekly Tavern Brawls earn themselves a free pack of cards from the game’s classic set. However, for this week’s Brawl, Blizzard is sweetening the pot a bit by offering a free pack from Hearthstone’s upcoming Journey to Un’Goro expansion.
This week’s Tavern Brawl (which is available until next Monday) is one which dedicated players have seen several times before: “Encounter at the Crossroads.” For this Brawl, players pick one of the game’s card classes and are then assigned a randomly constructed deck using that class as a base before they are matched up against an opponent under the same conditions. In short, it’s a very luck-based Brawl in which victory is pretty much guaranteed for whichever player was assigned the less crappy deck of random cards.
If you want to maximize the amount of Journey to Un’Goro cards you have access to when the expansion launches, though, suffering through this randomized Brawl will be worth it since winning will grant a single card pack from the upcoming expansion. Of course, since Journey to Un’Goro isn’t scheduled to launch until sometime in April, you’ll have to wait a little while before you can actually open the pack you earn from this week’s Tavern Brawl.
As with past Hearthstone expansions, players can also take advantage of a special pre-order deal which offers 50 Journey to Un’Goro packs and an exclusive card back for $49.99.
