Twitch Prime Card Backs Available Starting September 11 - Oktoberbrawl!
The card backs datamined in Patch 9.0 have been confirmed to be loot from Twitch Prime and will be available starting next Monday. What's the occasion? Oktoberbrawl!
- Oktoberbrawl is a special event featuring 6 pro players split up into 2 teams.
- Each pro creates a fresh Hearthstone account to use during the event period.
- Twitch Prime members can redeem two new card backs for their account which each belong to one of the teams.
- Support a team by equipping one of the two card backs.
- Each time you win a ranked game with that card back equipped, you help your team get a chance to open more card packs for the week.
- These card packs are for the pros playing, not you. The only freebies for us normies during this event are the card backs.
- The pros are not allowed to purchase anything in-game for real money.
The two teams and their members are:
- Team Void: Dog, Thijs, and J4CKIECHAN
- Team Light: Kripparrian, Reynad, and Alliestrasza
Here are the two card backs Twitch Prime members will get.

Quote from Blizzard
Drain your tankard, choose a side, and get ready to rumble in OKTOBERBRAWL!
The Hearthstone tavern is rough and tumble at the best of times, but during Oktoberbrawl the rivalries get really rowdy, and the whole tavern descends into a fantastic fracas! This is your chance to leap into the fray and help decide who comes out on top!
What is Oktoberbrawl? It’s a special event featuring two teams of Hearthstone luminaries facing off in weekly grudge matches. What makes it special is that each Oktoberbrawler is limited to a fresh account – but YOU can help battle for packs that your team can use to improve their decks! As Oktoberbrawl goes on each team will build better decks and battle for glory, culminating in show match finals at TwitchCon!
Choose a card back, dive into Oktoberbrawl, and support your team!
EVERYONE, GET IN HERE!
Joining the Oktoberbrawl is a snap! From September 11th to October 10th, Twitch Prime members can redeem two new Hearthstone card backs from Prime Loot: Call of the Void and Call of the Light!

These card backs don’t just look awesome, they have an important role to play! Each card back corresponds with one of the teams in Oktoberbrawl. Every time you win a game in Ranked play while using one, you'll strike a blow for your team by helping them get a chance to open more card packs for the week.
These card packs will be a precious resource that both teams will be vying to get, and your results will determine how they’re divvied up between each team! After the event begins, we’ll post a blog that we’ll update each day to show you how your efforts are contributing to your team.
Meet Your Teams
Now that you know how it works, it’s time to pick a team! Each Oktoberbrawl team is composed of three players, assembled from well-known personalities in the Hearthstone scene. Check out the rosters, decide where your loyalties lie, and then use the card back that corresponds with your chosen team!
TEAM VOID VS TEAM LIGHT
Watch What Happens
You won’t just battle on behalf of your team, you'll get to watch the results of your efforts in action as Oktoberbrawl battles are streamed on the official Hearthstone twitch channel. Each team member will also stream their efforts to bolster their Oktoberbrawl decks (Remember: the only time they can play Oktoberbrawl decks is during a live stream!).
Watch as your favorite player opens packs on stream and strives to build the strongest deck possible, leading up to a Friday grudge match each week! The winning team of each grudge match gets to choose a penalty that will be applied to the opposing team during the finals at TwitchCon!
Each week will also be themed according to the Hearthstone expansion cards each team gains access to.
WILD WEEK – September 11-15
Weekly Packs: 10 packs each of Goblins vs Gnomes and The Grand Tournament
KRAKEN WEEK – September 18-22
Weekly Packs: 10 packs each of Whispers of the Old Gods and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan
MAMMOTH WEEK – September 25-29
Weekly Packs: 10 packs each of Journey to Un’Goro and Knights of the Frozen Throne
ADVENTURE WEEK – October 2-6
Weekly Cards: Surprise Format!
Finals at TwitchCon – October 21
Each player on each Oktoberbrawl team will receive a fresh account, 10 Classic packs, and a Welcome Bundle. During the Oktoberbrawl period, on Monday of each week, each player will receive 10 packs each from two different expansions. Then on Wednesday of each week, each team member will receive a portion of a second pack award based on a percentage of total wins earned in Ranked Play by players using their team’s card back. Play for each week will culminate in a grudge match on the official Hearthstone twitch channel.
Oktoberbrawl accounts may only be played while streaming on Twitch. Oktoberbrawl team members may earn gold through quests and playing constructed games, and spend it to purchase Classic packs, but may not purchase packs in any other way. A free Arena ticket can be used, but Arena runs cannot be purchased otherwise. Players may not disenchant cards, and may only complete the 80g “play a friend” quest with one of their teammates.
Remember, every pack you earn for your team counts!
So what are you waiting for? Oktoberbrawl is waiting! Link your account and leap into the fray!
