It looks interesting. I’m not too sure about it, it seems like it might be a very one sided brawl though. Get the objective and it’s an instant win... I really do hope it’s not one sided. The potential for comebacks in this game isn’t what it used to be, especially when assasains kill each other within 2 seconds, and supports can’t do as much as they used to. A one sided brawl is not something we need to bring to the game. But, I have hope. I’ll try it first, then judge it.

I liked escape from braxis and I liked this even more! 
so much  fun and unpredictability. I hope they make more of this in the future.
and better, I hope they make a 5 vs 1 mode like they did in OW. Now this will be epic.

Most brawls are one sided to some degree, its the nature of the gamemode, but the games end so fast its not really an issue. The objectives of this brawl seem fine imo outside the ravenlord tribute, thats literally autowin once you capture it, ofc the channel can and should be interrupted but still it being such an "instant gg" objective is fairly obnoxious.

One of best brawls we had.. personally i think brawls should be something fun and casual and they should take less time than normal matches...

some of current brawls are really looking like normal matches with addition of some stuffs or some rules like mage brawl  so they take much time and aren't something new and much interesting for players

some may be not funny for all(most which looks like normal games) and also that new PVE brawl... it was good but not casual because as I remember people were caring much about win since u had to win to get chest and that caused having strategies and people were insulting each other(there wasn't a fun atmosphere however brawl was good itself,maybe it could be a new gamemode not a brawl haha)

I just feel this and chromie/stitches brawls(I don't remember others right now sorry) were very funny and they didn't need much time to complete and they were so interesting with new ideas behind them

As long as you don't get Probius. I still think this is rather lame anyway. Just a Team Deathmatch? Weak.

 

Chromie/Stitches were the best Brawls lol. No comparison with this...

I tried it yesterday and it is one of the most fun Brawls so far. With the randomized objectives and Heroes, it becomes pure mayhem. I just hope that the Lost Vikings and Abathur are part of that Hero pool.

It is rather fun, but I wish it would take a little bit longer than it does now. Some games are so short that it takes almost the same amount of time for queue + loading screen and character select. So double HP or sth like that would make it more interesting (for me).

Still, escape from Braxis rules.

I hope not, specially in the case of Abathur. Well, I don't really care anyway since I already got my free loot chest. But 10 Abathurs would have been retarded as hell. Sure each of them gets a hat but there's no point on it if they're not moving from base anyway.

Awww, c'mon! Slappathur FTW!

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!
