One of the worst brawls out there, everything is so random and fking long, it hurts to play this crap with ai level potatoes 3x 20min.

I actually like this one. I would even say that we could use this type of plain vanilla map without any objectives in the standard rotation.

That said, I must also partially agree with Jonar - the inherent randomness of brawls can be tiresome at times. But on the other hand, I also get this bitter flavour in Quick Match too, so...

I find this brawl acceptable. Sometimes character choices do really hurt one team more than the other, sometimes players just pick not-so-great Heroes for a one-lane map. Aaaaand other times you have a blast because both teams did pick a solid comp.

That being said, I really did not enjoy the "all players get to play the same hero" this time...because it was Valeera. The match went on for far too long and one player basically had to be the bait because every player being stealthed does not let anyone do jack-diddely-sh*t.

More power to all-out Butcher, less power to the likes of Valeera (at least for this brawl).

You can add absence of MMR to randomness which means everyone is matched with everyone in brawls. 

I mean It would be okay to me if this one lane brawl lasted only for 10-12 minutes, but in reality it takes nearly a full normal game time. Given that, I find it less enjoyable to wait for your inevitable defeat because your lvl 50 teammate didn't take a support, when he was the only one with that option, but you are losing not fast enough to not be annoyed at that.

And vice versa, I don't find any enjoyment in roflstomping an enemy team because they have a retarded comp.

The only thing I hate about this brawl is that we all know some heroes are WAY WAY stronger into an ARAM. And since you all get completely random heroes you might not even have a chance to build a solid comp to make it a game. Played against Auriel, ETC, Kael'Thas x2, and Lunara. Like what do you do there other than slowly get choked out for 15 minutes.

I wouldn't mind these matches, if my team had the chance to draft that too. But taking your best heroes, then going in and seeing that as their best options just feels awful. I only do the brawl for the loot chest, but I want to enjoy those games rather than feel like old dailies in WoW where it's just a task.

Oh, and who can forget blindly drafting and hope that ( ready for a miny rant? ) When you pick Sgt hammer after a insane hammer sweep the day before you do NOT fight Bw, artanis, chromie,  and others unnoatable.

      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!
