Also love the crazy brawls, but HATE HATE HATE this particular one. It's such a pure snowball with zero comeback mechanic. Glad it's only two.

Yeah, group as 5, and take forts ASAP.  The minute you fall behind the map is over.  Attack, attack, attack!  This is by far my most hated brawl.

Seconded. I absolutely despise it.

Even though I didn't expect it at all, there was almost no sieging in the games I played, and we kept teamfighting until Bell towers showed up, after which the teamfights have moved to the Belltower locations. Even the losses were fun, with so much teamfighting and crazy action going on at all times.

This map can be really fun. Well, unless you're losing. LMAO.

The problem is that it's so easy to snowball... One mistake costs the whole game. I like it, though. More than Mage Wars, at least.

I feel like too many people don't know how fast Hammer can die if they just sit there - there are so many people that die early and then the pushing begins :(

      The first ranked season of 2018 starts during the week of December 12 and there's a new set of rewards that you can earn by playing ranked games in the coming months.
      With that said, Hanzo should go live on December 12 as well.

      Season Roll Dates
      2018 Season 1 will begin as soon as our next patch is available for download in each region throughout next week. Check the start and end dates below and make sure you’re able to dive into the rankings as soon as the season rolls.
      EVENT DATE 2018 Season 1 Start Week of December 12, 2017* 2018 Season 1 End Week of March 6, 2018* *Exact date may vary slightly by region.
      Ranked Play Updates
      Along with the start of 2018 Ranked Season 1, we’re introducing performance-based matchmaking to all matchmaking modes in Heroes of the Storm.
      Performance-based matchmaking will help our system better evaluate individual players' in-game performance during a match, and adjust how much their rank and matchmaking ratings (MMR) increase or decrease at the end of that game. If players perform beyond expectations for their current MMR, the system will award more when they win, and subtract less when they lose. As a result, players will reach ratings that accurately match their skill level more quickly than they did in our previous system.
      There's more to the matchmaking improvements we're introducing, such as how the system differentiates highly-skilled play from one hero to the next. Be sure to read our in-depth blog on performance-based matchmaking to catch all the details before you jump into ranked play—or any matchmaking mode—next season.
