Heroes Brawl - Coming to the Nexus Oct. 17th!

Almost a year after showing us Heroes Arena at BlizzCon 2015, Blizzard has unveiled what it's evolved into (after it went silent for long enough, we knew there'd be some big changes to it). Heroes Brawl is a new mode coming in the vein of Hearthstone's Weekly Brawls, with modified game modes and win conditions complete with rewards. HotS is taking it a step further, though - Heroes Brawl will feature new original maps and portraits! We can't wait to play it, and the wait is pretty short after this announcement. 


Also starring some dope new art. Everyone here looks incredible!


 Implementing the "mutators" recently added to StarCraft II, we're sure there's a ton of awesome new Brawls coming. Some ideas off the top of our head for Brawls and mutators:

  • Inverted Mode - 2v2, locked into assassin/healer combo, all heals do damage and all damage self-heals
  • Krazy, Krazy Kharazims - All-Kharazim mode: All Kharazims have all three Level 1 Talents
  • Down With the Dominion - A giant statue of Arcturus Mengsk sits in the middle of the map, and Warheads spawn like on Warhead Junction. The round ends when the statue falls, and the team that did the most damage to it wins!  
  • Kharazan - The map is interlaced with impassable walls, and the custom hero set means only Medivh can get your team past them!
  • Kharazan 2 - Medivh is pissed! You can now play any hero, but Ley Line Seals are constantly flowing across the map in all directions. As time progresses, so does their intensity. First to 5 kills wins!
  • Blackhearts Revenge - Combining Blackheart's Bay and Towers of Doom, every coin you turn into Blackheart fires a cannon shot at the enemy core, which has a set HP value. 


What cool brawls can you come up with? See you October 17th!

Hero Concept: Fenix

So, we clearly need a 5th Protoss character, so we can truly live Adun's dream. Agreed? Agreed. One of our favorite things about the hero design in HotS is that they emphasize game-breaking mechanics and utilize resources outside of the normal constraints such as damage, health, and mana, opting instead to implement unique resources such as death, number of players, and map presence for many of their heroes. Keeping that in mind, our concept for Fenix is one that sticks strongly to his lore while implementing a new resource: hero roles. 



"Don't let the fact that I am three hundred and sixty eight years older than you dull your impression of me, young Raynor. I can still... how do you Terrans say it... "Throw down with the best of them!""

Throughout his many lives, Fenix was felled in battle and resurrected not once, but twice. Starting as a Protoss zealot, he died defending New Antioch against the Zerg, and was resurrected as a Dragoon, a common Protoss practice. Years later, after another death, he was brought back in Legacy of the Void as a shield-heavy Immortal unit. To highlight this, Fenix in Heroes of the Storm would come back as a different hero role every time he dies.
