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 two matches of the Blackheart's Revenge to earn a loot chest

At time of posting this Brawl has the annoying bug of assuming everyone is AFK between rounds and kicking them from the game. :)

Actually this isn't a Bug. It's an exploit according to many.

 

If someone manually reports you as AFK a timer will start. This timer will count down wether or not you are moving around, only being dismissed if you perform any real action like combat (to prevent idlers from using a move+spam script to evade the normal timer). So right when a round ends someone can report you for being afk leaving you with not enough time to evade it causing you to get removed seconds before the time starts.

As ive seen it. If i am part of a team and my side wins it would be very likely that my entire team would suffer from this "Bug" which in reality was most likely caused by a Salty player on the opposite team trolling by reporting you AFK in the hopes of gaining an advantage next round...

It makes sense as the timer would be absolute and wouldn't check the state of the game; only if the player engaged in combat. 

What I don't understand (from a design perspective) is why would you allow the other team to report AFK when it's affecting your teammates. It doesn't seem logical. 

Besides all that; this does need to be fixed and/or the player reporting to be punished 'cause they can't take a loss in a shitty brawl game (not saying the mode is bad but in terms of ranking/pride brawl is the lowest of all gamemodes really)

wut? report an enemy player? why for the earth I got to fight at all! just ban them out!

even if that SALTY player is on your side, reports you, one report does nothing. it's a bug, fortunately, it doesn't prevent you from getting a reward
