Harvest the terror's seeds or watch them grow to become your ruin in this week's brawl!
The weekly brawl is a best-of-three-Arena match with shuffle pick and the objective is to collect 100 seeds to win a round. All players start at level 10 and will be asked to pick a Heroic ability. No other talents are available. There's a small chance of all players being the same Hero. Complete three matches to earn a Loot Chest.
This week's Heroes Brawl mode is Garden Arena: a best-of-three Arena match featuring the Garden Terror and its Shamblers. Gather seeds and overrun the enemies’ core with the power of nature!
Choose from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Arena. Be quick about it though, you only have 30 seconds to choose! Everyone will begin the round at level 10 and will be asked to choose a Heroic Ability. No other talents will be available. During each round, slay the enemy team’s Heroes and capture Seeds from the Garden Terror and its Shamblers. The first team to gather 100 Seeds wins the round! The first team to win two rounds will claim victory! Rewards:
Complete two matches of Garden Arena to earn a Fall of King's Crest Chest! Find out more about the Heroes Brawl game mode on our Heroes Brawl site; and as always, you can find more information on this week’s Brawl by clicking the Brawl Info button at the bottom of the play screen when preparing to queue for this exciting new game mode.

Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 patch. The goal of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame).

Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
