NEW GAME MODE: HEROES BRAWL

Heroes Brawl is an action-packed new game mode that breaks all the rules and offers a fresh take on Heroes of the Storm's gameplay each week. Learn more by visiting the Heroes Brawl website.

The Basics
  • Heroes Brawl offers three distinct match types, with endless possibilities for twisted rulesets and wild mechanics each week:
    • Arenas: Pick one of three randomly selected Heroes, and then duke it out against the enemy team to complete objectives. The first team to complete the objective twice will claim victory.
    • Mutators: Wild rulesets and unique mechanics change the way you play on Battlegrounds you’re already familiar with.
    • Single-Lanes: One-lane Battlegrounds with no objectives, Mercenaries, or Hearthstone to distract you from destroying the enemy Core.
  • Click the Brawl Info button in the lower-left corner of the screen to learn detailed information about the currently active Brawl.

How to Brawl

  • Find Heroes Brawl in-game by heading to the Play screen, click Brawl on the far left side of the navigation bar, then queue up and have a blast!
  • Anyone can dive into the action! Heroes Brawl is not restricted by account level or the number of Heroes owned, and you can queue up alone or in a party of any size.
  • The current weekly Brawl will also be available through Custom Games - though replays, observer mode, and score screens may not function as expected for some of the unique Brawl types.
    • Heroes Brawl custom games will also discard Hero drafts and pre-selections once players enter the match.

Reap the Rewards

  • Participate in three Brawls each week to receive in-game rewards!
  • Hover the cursor over the Weekly Rewards icon in the lower-left corner of the Brawl screen for a breakdown of the available rewards each week.

      The latest balance patch brings notable Hero changes and the removal of all party-size restrictions to decrease queue times.
      Patch Highlights
      All Party-size restrictions during matchmaking have been removed to decrease queue times. The enemy party size will no longer be displayed during the match loading screen. Blizzard looked at Mana tension in the game and adjusted Mana cost of multiple abilities to bring the outliers closer to the center. Viewing replays generated between March 26's and April 17's patches has been disabled to prevent game crashes. The latest balance patch includes many Hero changes. Check out the patch notes below for more information. Blizzard (Source)
