Recommended Posts

35121-heroes-brawl-trial-grounds-dec-29.

This week's brawl is a single-lane Overwatch-themed map known as Trial Grounds. All players on both teams play as the same Hero and a new one is selected every round. If no Hero on your team's alive, the round is lost. The first team to win two rounds wins the brawl.

The brawl is short and fun with varying challenges that become active at 30 seconds. Complete three matches of Trial Grounds to earn a Nexomania Chest.

Rules:

  • Battle it out on a single-lane Overwatch-themed Battleground known only as… the Trial Grounds.

  • Best of Three
    • The first team to win two rounds will win the Brawl!
  • Round Events 
    • Starting at 30 seconds, an elevator will rise in the center of the Battleground, presenting one of the following challenges to both teams:
      • Tribute
        • Capture the Tribute to reduce the health of all enemy Heroes to 1!
      • Capture Point 
        • Capture the point to spawn a Triglav Protector for your team!
      • Artifact
        • Artifact spawns in the center of the Battleground. The first Hero to walk over it gains its power!
          • The Hero that kills the artifact carrier will claim it for themselves.
      • Dueling Immortals
        • Immortals spawn for each team in the center of the Battleground.
        • Once an immortal has been slain, the winning team’s Immortal will take to the sky, revealing the map and raining destruction onto the enemy Heroes.
      • Safe Zone 
        • A Safe Zone is created at the center of the Battleground.
        • Every 15 seconds the entire map is electrified, and only those in the Safe Zone will be protected.
      • There’s also a chance for no event at all. You’ll just have to rely on your own ruthless skills to take down the enemy Heroes and be the last team standing!

Rewards:

  • Complete three matches of Trial Grounds to earn a Nexomania Loot Chest!

Barf. I'll be skipping this one. 

I hate playing as all the same character when it's random. No way I'm doing it deliberately.

You might enjoy playing this brawl more than you know. Give it a try .

Why skip it? You can get a loot chest under 10 mins :).

At least this is one of the fastest Brawls ever. Too bad Blizzard lacks the balls to give us 5v5 Abathur or 5v5 The Lost Vikings.

Am I the only one to notice something is strange about this brawl?
I have a strong feeling it might gives us hints for the lore for HotS and the nexus.
If you listen closely to what Katya Volskaya says during the brawl, it is pretty clear that there is something we absolutely don't know about her. How does she know so much about the nexus and its properties? How is able to replicate the powers of a literal demi-god (the Raven Lord tribute) and of real angels and demons from an entirely different universe (the Immortals).
It raises so many questions about the nexus and how it affects the other blizzard universes and also how those universes affect it. So much to be discovered in the lore of this game, that I don't even know what to say anymore.

Last time I got both all Gazlowe and all Probius matches. It was quite crowded.

Also all Li-Li, no one could kill anyone.

      The required player level remains unknown because Blizzard stopped updating the official forum post, so we're listing the Heroes alphabetically.

      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!
