Blackheart's Revenge brawl is up for the second week in a row.

There are virtually no changes to this week's Heroes Brawl. Blackheart's Revenge is up for the second week in a row. Hopefully, we'll get a new brawl next week, on December 2. If you haven't managed to claim the Blackheart's Brawl portrait, don't worry. You still have enough time to get it. In addition there's the usual 1,000 Gold reward for completing three brawls in a week.

Assist a salty revenge-fueled pirate in his other-worldly quest to destroy the docks, or send him to a watery grave with the aid of some spectral cannonballs. This week’s Heroes Brawl is Blackheart’s Revenge, and whichever side you're on, it’s sure to be an explosive match!

RULES:

  • Choose from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Docks. 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.
  • You will either be placed on the Attacking or Defending team and will be responsible for aiding Blackheart in his quest for revenge, or preventing the destruction of the Docks
    • Attackers will be responsible for preventing Defenders from firing Cannons at Blackheart’s ship
      • If Blackheart reaches his target, your team wins!
    • Defenders will gather Cannonballs and fire them at Blackheart’s ship via Cannons placed around the Battleground
      • Fire 5 Cannonballs at Blackheart’s ship to secure victory!

REWARDS:

  • Complete three matches of the Blackheart's Revenge to earn 1,000 Gold and the following portrait:

Wonder if this isn't a bug like sometimes happens to Hearthstone... I just doubt they would double down on a brawl back to back... at least give us a repeat that we haven't had in about a month.

We'll see. All rewards were reset though.

I have a brawl related question: what heroes do you generally avoid picking in brawl? what do you think are some strong picks? it's an extremely weird space b/c  so many heroes *rely* on one talent or another to make them work (especially in teamfights) whereas some others are essentially unfazed. for example, tyrande can be quite fearsome with some of her damage/CD reduction builds, spamming stuns and deadly owl barrages right and left. In Brawl, shes a sub-par healer with super long cooldowns,  mediocre damage, and a W that doesn't even serve its basic function (piercing through a whole team for long range aoe poke/executes). Take a hero like zeratul or valla though, and thier meat-and potatoes strategies still work (just, like, less efficiently).

 

so what are some heroes that *you* think are dead in the water without talents? and who gets by pretty well?

For this brawl, mobility is king. Most heroes don't require full talents to be really tough. Specialists are definitely hit the hardest by a lack of talent development, but assassins and warriors don't really make a big impact. Support almost has impact (except for maybe karazim, no idea how he gets his 3 hit bonuses). If I had to say three to not pick I would say avoid Gazlowe, Xul, and Uther. All the others work pretty well, especially if you work with teammates on picking. Match an illidan with a jaina and rehgar makes easy work. 

For this one in particular, Illidan is great with Hunt, but the king is Samuro. Mirror images control ultimate is CRAZY good. Goes back to the whole mobility is king, you can literally jump all over the map to escape pressure and use cannons. Works kind of like lost vikings but with way higher damage output and easier to manage because if one dies, who cares... it's a mirror.

What if we're not quite ready to macro 3 people? Also, is there any way to practice this? I have tried the vikings and if I took them in a quick match I would die every time I was found...

I'd recommend using Samuro in a couple AI matches. He's not near as punishing as the vikings, because if you lose a mirror image it doesn't hurt you at all. so it's really only caring about 1 main guy with 2 secondary things. And the ultimate gives him almost limitless survival if you position right, because you swap your character between the images.

Alright, thanks. It's gonna be a grind to macro that well though!

One of the things that actually helped me the most was playing other games that required a lot more macro than HOTS normally does. Starcraft is a perfect example, if you have it.

I have the free one (you can play vs. AI) but I really am not good at macro there either...

The reason I used it was because it was a bit more... gradual? When learning macro in HoTS itself, you either completely stomp AI or get completely stomped in PvP.

I just found that SC2 build it up slowly, but required the same thought processes.
