Heroes Brawl of the Week: Punisher Arena

Recommended Posts

RSF7O0AFMB4F1476724451817.jpg

The first ever Heroes of the Storm brawl is about to land in the Nexus!

One of the exciting new features coming this week is the long awaited Arena mode, which was rebranded as Heroes Brawl. Heroes of the Storm is the third Blizzard title to get a weekly brawl mode; similar game modes also exist in Hearthstone and Overwatch. The first brawl in Heroes of the Storm is called "Punisher Arena" and here are its rules:

Rules:

  • Choose from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Arena. Be quick about it though, you only have 30 seconds to choose!
  • During each round, slay enemy Heroes and the enemy Punisher to earn points for your team. The first team to reach 100 points takes the round.
    • Heroes are worth 4 points
    • Punishers are worth 10 points
  • Be the first team to win 2 rounds and claim victory!

By reading the rules, this brawl may seem slow in progression, but we've included the gif on purpose: it looks like it's going to be total chaos and mayhem!

Punisher Arena will go live later today in the Americas and - presumably - tomorrow in all other regions. It's not certain yet if it will last a full week like the Overwatch brawl or five days like the Hearthstone brawl.

Have you seen all players get the same hero? I got Thrall and the amount of CC from heroic abilities and Feral SpiritFeral Spirits was just insane. I was surprised by the popularity of EarthquakeEarthquakes, which seems to be a subpar pick in regular PvP.

I can just imagine appearing, getting slammed with 5 ults and then alt+f4-ing.

      Players won't be getting any rewards besides the 3,750 Gold and the Portrait this Season which ends in less then a week.

      Hey team what’s up with the lack of rewards? Did you not intend to include a mount or a similar reward in the first place or can we still keep our hopes up because someone simply forgot to press a button?
      I understand if the development team wants the gameplay experience to be its own reward, no one cares about portraits and some bonus gold in the end is a nice addition, but then why dangle a carrot infront of us if it can’t be communicated properly?
      Hey GriM,
      The Season rewards for this year were the Portrait and the Gold only. There are no other missing rewards. As this is not a bug, this would be great feedback to discuss on the General Discussion forum!
