Oktoberbrawl Finals LIVE This Weekend At TwitchCon

Last Updated: Oct 17, 2017
TwitchCon is being held October 20-22 in Long Beach, California.
If you've been supporting one of the two teams (Void or Light), you might have wondered where does the whole competition head to. Both teams have been fighting for whole four weeks, trying their best to build working decks out of the limited resources they've had. And now we know more details about the final event.
This won't be just a normal tournament. Not only teams are handicapped in terms of the cards owned, but they also have extra tasks they need to perform in order to play (like wearnig a cosplay or having their turn timer limited to 30 seconds).
The showdown will start with Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime taking on the Twitch CEO Emmett Shear in a one on one Hearthstone match. Last year Emmett was the winner, so this time around Mike will be even more determined to take the game!
After that, both teams will clash in their final showdown. You will be able to watch it live on the PlayHearthstone channel, October 20, right after the TwitchCon oppening address.
Four weeks of hard brawling has come down to this! Team Light and Team Void will settle their score once and for all in the Oktoberbrawl finals at TwitchCon this weekend.
Scheduled for Oct. 20, the final showdown will kick off with a one game Wild match between Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime and Twitch CEO Emmett Shear. The two clashed last year in a bout that saw Emmett walk away the winner. Will Mike make an epic comeback this year?
Taking the stage after that will be the teams Light and Void, consisting of personalities you know and have cheered on these past couple of months.
The teams will square off in a best-of-five match, with each player representing their team for at least one game. Both teams have earned sabotages over the last four weeks of Oktoberbrawl, and they will finally be able to use them against each other at the Oktoberbrawl Finals at TwitchCon!
Team Void holds three sabotages: opponent must wear gauntlets while playing their match; opponent is limited to 30 seconds per turn; opponent must voice one of their hero’s emotes before making their play.
Team Light, on the other hand, holds just one sabotage: opponent must compete while in cosplay.
A sabotage will only affect the player representing their team for that round, and can be awarded in any order.
Team Light may have stumbled a little in their Oktoberbrawl rumbles, but they’ve also got vengeance burning beneath those card backs! Kripparian, Alliestrasza, and Reynad have major bones to pick with Team Void, who took the grudge matches 3-1 against them.
It has been said that the comeback is real. Will we see Team Light end Oktoberbrawl with a flourish?
Watch the showdown live on PlayHearthstone on Oct. 20, 2017. Broadcast will begin shortly after the TwitchCon opening address. Broadcast will begin shortly after the TwitchCon opening address.
