Second Teaser for the Hearthstone Mysterious Game Mode Button

Blizzard Entertainment posted a second teaser concerning the mysterious fourth button animation posted yesterday.

Speculation

This second image brings up more questions than answers. It is a Tavern brawl with people fighting each other. Could this be misdirection or should be taken literally? The literal thinking of a brawl would be a multiplayer match like 2v2 instead of the usual 1v1.

If this is a 2v2 or 3v3, this would certainly change the way we usually play Hearthstone; and might introduce new rules. In a 2v2 environment, for example, 30 Health as a rule would make a match really too fast. The Health pool should have to be increased.

Our member, Naka (@dperschonok) suggests this might be a Tournament mode. Naka also pointed out at two comments made by Hearthstone (Germany) Facebook page: This button has nothing to do with the Shop, and the new feature won’t be Co-op either. It is also known that King Magni’s portrait and upcoming portraits will be stored in the Hero selection page. So the mysterious button might be a new game mode in addition to the Play, Solo Adventures and The Arena.

Or how about a free for all match with multiple players? How would all this work out in Hearthstone is beyond me. But then again, this is mere speculation and we have to sit tight and wait for Blizzard to unveil what fate has in store for the mysterious button.
