The latest patch removed strings related to an unknown battleground called Blackheart's Revenge

The string were added somewhere in August in Build 19.3. There are three possible explanations:

  • It's either an entirely new Battleground which will be unveiled at BlizzCon
    • Not so likely as we already have a Blackheart's Bay map and this would be too similar. But hey, Cursed Hollow & Towers of Doom both star the Raven.
  • It's a new, revamped version of Blackheart's Bay,
  • it's actually an Arena used in the Heroes Brawl game mode.
    • Probably the most likely option as "A" stands for Attackers and "D" for Defenders in the strings.

Comparing Blackheart's Bay & Blackheart's Revenge

Below you can find strings for Blackheart's Bay

  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsBay=Blackheart's Bay
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsBay/Description1=Attack Treasure Chests, Mercenaries, and Skeletons to collect Doubloons. UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsBay/Description2=Hand your Doubloons over to Blackheart or you will drop them all when you die!
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsBay/Description3=After receiving enough Doubloons from your Team, Blackheart will bombard your Enemy's forts!
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsBay/Title1=Collect Doubloons
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsBay/Title2=Turn in Doubloons
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsBay/Title3=Bombard your Enemies

Here are strings for Blackheart's Revenge

  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge=Blackheart's Revenge
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/DescriptionA1=Enemies use Cannonballs to fire Cannons
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/DescriptionA2=Enemies turn in Cannonballs to Cannons to attack your ship, Blackheart's Revenge UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/DescriptionA3=Blackheart's Revenge will attempt to kill the enemy core once it reaches its destination
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/DescriptionD1=Cannonballs can be turned in at active Cannons UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/DescriptionD2=Loading an active Cannon will fire a cannonball at the enemy's ship, Blackheart's Revenge
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/DescriptionD3=Destroy the enemy's ship before it destroys your core UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/TitleA1=Stop Enemies From Collecting Cannonballs UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/TitleA2=Stop Enemies From From Firing Cannons UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/TitleA3=Escort Ship To Enemy Core UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/TitleD1=Collect Cannonballs
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/TitleD2=Turn In Cannonballs
  • UI/MapLoadingScreen/BlackheartsRevenge/TitleD3=Destroy Ship

What the strings tell us is that there are differences between these two maps.

  • Instead of Doubloons, you collect and turn in Cannonballs.
  • You have to escort the ship to the enemy's core to win.

      An issue with Matchmaking Rating seeding from the previous Season caused players to be placed at significantly different ranks from where they ended in the last Season. In order to fix the issue, Blizzard will be resetting the Hero and Team League records (including placement matches) of any affected accounts tomorrow.

      With yesterday’s patch, a number of players unfortunately encountered an issue that caused them to be placed at ranks that were significantly different from where they ended the previous season. This issue is unrelated to our Performance-Based Matchmaking implementation, and is instead a result of an issue with Matchmaking Rating seeding from the previous season. We’ve finished diagnosing the problem and are currently working on a fix which, once completed, means that we will be resetting the Hero and Team League records (including placement matches) of any affected accounts. 

      In order to implement the fix without taking down the servers, we will need to disable the Hero and Team League Matchmaking queues for roughly an hour. Our current plan is to start this in all regions at some point tomorrow, Dec 14, but we will keep this thread updated if anything changes. For players that have yet to complete your ranked placement matches, we recommend waiting until this issue is addressed.

      We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this causes for those of you that have already made significant progress into Season 1 2018. We’re extremely excited to show off the major gameplay changes included in this patch, and will be working hard to implement a fix so you can experience everything the Nexus has to offer without major issues like this. Thank you very much for your patience.
