Yes, I believe so. As far as gameplay goes, it's almost the same, except for the part where sieging for Forts/Keeps will start from 7 right away and will depend on which team gets more Napalm StrikeNapalm Strike ,since heals are gone at it's best and demolishing Forts/Keeps.

Since it's only 2 matches, and she has had the rework, this could be entertaining enough. I'm a fan of the games that aren't total RNG heroes too.

I'll need to check if it's really 2 matches. Blog posts have been inaccurate in the past. I'll update this post when the brawl is available.

It's three matches, by the way.

I have to say, this brawl was finally fun for me due to how broken spider mines are with Tactical Mine DeploymentTactical Mine Deployment coupled with the constant ThrustersThrusters. Just Siege and un-Siege over and over for a massive amount of spider mines.

There's just no point going with anything else, since the mines are a constant source of CC, damage, area denial and never use any of your mana.

      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!
