This weeks tavern brawl is a nice switch-up, with players getting the chance to play cooperatively. The decks are pre-made, and only priest and paladins are playable, but there's some fun stuff in there and Mechazod is surprisingly hard to defeat - it seems that his attacks are all pretty random, and that the buffing spells are a bit of a trap, since if you ever build up one good minion, it will almost certainly be assassinated. That said, the little interaction with Loremaster Cho was neat, and the possibility of having a huge turn with Loremaster Cho out and all your spells costing zero is enticing to hold onto for the right moment.

Only bad part is that you can't build your own deck, since certain cards would simply destroy mechazod. That said, I wonder if they're going to try and bring in a multiplayer format sometime soon. Could be fun to play 3 on 1 (or 3 on AI) against a super-powered dungeon deck, like they had back in WoW TCG.

I didn't find him hard to beat at all. 2-o against him.

I hoped that this Brawl will be a sign that they are working on a co-op mode, but the way they did this shows that there is no reason to think so. The co-op mode here is in fact the same game as an usual PvP with a cleverly designed minion to make a co-op scenario. The biggest indicator of how little was changed is that if the minion kills your partner then you still get a booster. Your opponent has been killed so the game assumes you won.

I think the "cleverly designed minion" is probably a sign that they are NOT working on true co-op. How would they even fit 3 players' information on the screen? The minion is an interesting and creative work around, at least.

Yeah, I also noted that when mechazod is on "my team" any minions he destroyed counted towards my daily quest. Too bad, I'd really enjoy playing "Raid Decks"
