That looks like a tooltip bug in the "against current enemy" line--it appears to be showing your mitigation against a 120 in all the cases you're seeing here. You should indeed expect to see a number slightly higher than than the number in the first line, when targeting a -1 level enemy. The 25% you're seeing in the first line is in the right ballpark for a mail-wearer against a par enemy (subject to the exact items you have on, etc.).

As far as taking a lot of damage while questing, that could be either:
1) It's not just a tooltip bug and perhaps you are actually taking damage as though the attacker was 120. We'll have to look into that.
2) We're all used to questing in endgame gear on live, so it's a big shift to go back to questing in quest gear, where the enemies are a better match for you. Fighting 3 standard outdoor mobs at once is the sort of thing that should have a chance of killing you. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Monk (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
Brewmaster - Stagger
I agree with this - it should be clear what the default stagger percentage is. This should be added to the Character Pane.
No promises yet, but the character sheet is a possible solution we might try here. Because Stagger now uses a more complex calculation akin to armor, it's difficult to present it in a tooltip. For the moment, the salient points are:

1) You want Agility to drive the value of Stagger, similarly to how all tanks now want Strength/Agility to make sure their armor/AM keeps up with content they're tanking.

2) In current alpha, with par gear against the content you're fighting, Stagger amounts are similar to what they'd been before the change (40% baseline, 70% when you have Ironskin Brew up, etc.). (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Soothing Mist
1) Just to say it, sorry about the confusion where we said we were going fix a bug with mobile Soothing Mist and then wound up removing it this build. We made the latter decision a few days later. Briefly--with Soothing Mist changing so much between Legion and BFA, the impact of mobile Soothing would have gone from "a small filler heal can be cast while moving" to "all 5 of your core heals can now be cast while moving." The latter is something we avoid on healers.

2) Any details on ReM overwriting itself would be good. It should not be trying to jump unless there is an injured target that doesn't already have your Renewing Mist on them. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Before the Storm Novel Description Updated

The Horde and the Alliance defeated the demonic Burning Legion, but a dire catastrophe is unfolding deep below the surface of the world. There is a mortal wound in the heart of Azeroth, struck by the sword of the fallen titan Sargeras in a final act of cruelty.

For Anduin Wrynn, king of Stormwind, and Sylvanas Windrunner, warchief of the Horde and queen of the Forsaken, there is little time to rebuild what remains and even less to mourn what was lost. Azeroth’s devastating wound has revealed a mysterious material known as Azerite. In the right hands, this strange golden substance is capable of incredible feats of creation; in the wrong ones, it could bring forth unthinkable destruction.

As Alliance and Horde forces race to uncover the secrets of Azerite and heal the wounded world, Anduin enacts a desperate plan aimed at forging a lasting peace between the factions. Azerite jeopardizes the balance of power, and so Anduin must gain the trust of Sylvanas. But, as ever, the Dark Lady has her own machinations.

For peace to be possible, generations of bloodshed and hatred must be brought to and end. But there are truths that neither side is willing to accept and ambitions they are loath to relinquish. As Alliance and Horde alike grasp for the Azerite’s power, their simmering conflict threatens to reignite all-out war—a war that would spell doom for Azeroth.



This Week in WoW History
We're taking a look back at old MMO-Champion posts and World of Warcraft news that occurred during this time in previous years.

Guild Finder
Patch 4.1 introduced the Guild Finder feature, giving players and guilds an easier path to finding each other. Previously, recruitment to guilds mostly happened on forums or third party websites. The intention of this feature was to replace these methods, however, due to its limited capabilities and lack of filtering, most players still seem to stick to the old ways and prefer using third party websites to find a home for their character.


Silvershard Mines
The second battleground added to the Mists of Pandaria test servers was Silvershard Mines. This new battleground was also a Resource Race, however it features moving points which can be flipped by the faction who has the most players in the vicinity. Another cool feature of the battleground is being able to switch the tracks on which the carts roll to make their path longer or shorter.


Warlords of Draenor Major Changes
A few game systems were changed with the introduction of Warlords of Draenor. One of these changes was the overhaul of the Movement Speed system. Previously, movement speed items stacked together in a multiplicative fashion, which was changed to an additive one, meaning that the movement speed players got from abilities, or passively, scaled linearly. The second major change to game systems was the Periodic Effects (DoT) changes. In previous expansions most classes had to play around something called “snapshotting”, which meant that Periodic Effects took into consideration player stats only when they were cast. This was changed to a dynamic update system, which makes Periodic Effect damage update during their duration based on the players stats.


Tanaan Jungle & Patch 6.2 PTR Preview
Patch 6.2 was the last major content patch of Warlords of Draenor. This patch brought some balance changes, and the addition of Tanaan Jungle, a max level zone for players. The zone had a new world boss, multiple elites, the new raid, and a new daily quest hub. The garrisons also saw a few changes with the addition of the Shipyard, which gave players another mission table to complete Naval Missions, which required Oil. The shipyard was also part of the Legendary Questline during the expansion, and the completion of which also gave players a new monument to place in the Garrison.


World Quests
One of the major features of Legion was tested in 2016. World Quests promised a source of repeatable content with relevant rewards until the end of the expansion. After taking a closer look at them, some additional details were found. World Quests became available at level 110, and they each had a limited duration before rotating out. Each day a new emissary quest would be available, with the ability to save up three of them. These quests rewarded gear, relics, gold, Order Hall Resources, Crafting Reagents, and reputation. They also came in different types, such as Regular, Rare, Rare Elite, Epic, Elite, and Epic Elite, among other varieties for PVE and PvP players.


Auction House
Patch 7.2.5 changed the decor to the Auction House in preparation for the Auction House Dance party. This new event cleared out the Auction house for the day, and replaced the decor with disco lights, and speakers. Above all, a floor which when stepped on makes players dance, giving everyone some time to blow off steam after a long session of auctioning.


A Found Memento
A short quest chain became available on the Broken Shore, after finding a Battered trinket we take a look into the experiences of Anduin during the defense of the Broken Shore. This quest is Alliance specific, and is still available to complete. During this short chain we got a glimpse into Anduins character, and of things to come.


Trial of Style
Patch 7.2.5 brought a new event where players could prove that they had the better transmog skills in a six person face-off. This competition is available to queue for at any Transmog vendor, after which players are placed on a catwalk and given unique themes to make new transmogs. The top three players receive prizes which can be used to buy a Fashionable Undershirt, or a few different Esnembles of gear.

It is an honor to meet you, King Wrynn. I am Taelia.
Taelia Fordragon.
Fordragon£!
Bolvar's daughter. Raised under our protection since the Third War.
Taelia... please, rise. The honor is mine.
Did you know my father£
Highlord Bolvar was a great man. A true hero of the Alliance - and to me.
I remember now - he used to write you letters. He had a nickname for you-
"My shining star."
The letters stopped coming. I... I have so many questions.
Taelia, when you are ready, come to Stormwind. I will tell you all you wish to know about your father.


Taelia, ma'am.
Taelia... Of course. Our young ward from across the sea. Has it already been so long£
You've grown into a valiant young woman, Taelia. Your father would be proud.

When Daelin asked me to leave his guard and raise this child of the Eastern Kingdoms, I struggled to understand why.
Why thrust this burden on me£ Why deny me the honor of fighting by his side£ I thought maybe I had done something to lose his faith.
Over the years, I have come to realize that the opposite was true. He wanted Taelia to grow up strong of arm and noble of heart - and he had faith that I could make that happen.

King Greymane, it is an honor. You are free to remain in the harbor on my authority.
Taelia! Prepare a full briefing for our guests.
Aye, sir!

Sir! The situation report is ready!
Excellent. Hero, Taelia will get you up to speed.

Be careful out there, Taelia. I don't trust those hooded sages one bit.
I'll be fine, Cyrus. I can protect myself. Besides, I have the Alliance emissary by my side!
Normally, I'd offer you a ride on Galeheart, but the tidesages only allow visitors by boat.
Most people here look to the sea for guidance the same way others look to the Light, but the tidesages have a much deeper connection with the water.
They're a little mysterious, but they're important to Kul Tiras. They help bring fish to the nets here, and rain to the fields in the valley.
They also bless every last Kul Tiran ship. That's what really sets them apart from the visiting vessels you see in port.
Anyway, time to put that ferry pass to good use!

Flynn, I have another job for you: Help our new ally track down the source of this powder.
You got it.
Taelia, prepare to make your rounds again. Tell the city guard to be on the lookout for unusual weapons being smuggled into Boralus.
Aye, sir!

Thank you all for coming. I shall keep this brief.
Division has made us vulnerable. We are beset by enemies from within.
The Horde, too, have made their intentions clear - they would see us burn.
I ask you now to put your faith in my daughter Jaina, the true Lord Admiral of Kul Tiras.
And to put your trust in the Alliance, whose heroes have saved us from our own unmaking.
House Waycrest stands with you, Lord Admiral. And with the Alliance.


Vol'jin
If the Horde want war, we're going to give them everything we've got!
Our reinforcements await your command.

The dead, dey be fallin'.
Zalazane not be comin' back from dat. Even in death, Vol'jin be watchin' over us.
Few spirits have ever shown such... power. Master Gadrin, I invite you to bring this chieftain's ashes to Atal'Dazar. If his spirit be worthy, he may have a place of honor amongst our greatest kings.

Vol'jin made a deal with Bonsamdi to defeat the powerful Zalazane.

Hey Vol'jin£ Come on outta dat urn. Wait... wait wait... no! Where is de spirit£! Where be Vol'jin£
No! No! Impossible. Da boss ain't gonna like dis. I ain't lost a spirit in... oh dis be bad.

We come bearing da ashes of Vol'jin, son of Sen'jin, to be honored in dis sacred place.
Dis be an honor seldom awarded to a non Zandalari. Come, walk the path with me and share this Vol'jin's deeds.
When Zandalar tried to unite da troll tribes, Vol'jin chose the safety of his people to the dark powers of da prophet.
At de time, Zul's vision of a grand troll empire seemed very tempting to my father. But I must commend ya chieftain for seeing de bigger picture.
When it was clear our Warchief, Garrosh, was unwilling to lead with honor, Vol'jin led the rebellion to depose da warmonger.
It is a hard thing to do what your leaders are unwilling to.
The right to enter is yours. Let it be known dat I find Vol'jin, son of Sen'jin, worthy of dese sacred tombs. Though to enter Atal'Dazar you may need to fight. I recommend de champion be de one to carry dese ashes to dere final resting place.

War Campaign, Island Expeditions, and Warfronts
I need you and Garona Halforcen to assemble a covert unit of Horde champions.
It seems goblins have their uses after all. They continue to discover new deposits of Azerite spread throughout the vast seas.
We must seize the advantage and explore these islands before the Alliance can take them for themselves.
Stromgarde is ripe for the plucking. Should we secure the keep, it will set the stage for a campaign against the Alliance from the heart of the Eastern Kingdoms.
Take the Arathi Highlands, and the enemy will be at our mercy.
Your conversion of Brother Zelling already yields promising results. He has revealed the location of the shipwreck we seek.
I advise you to use the cover of night to perform your search for the remains.
Nathanos, I want you there personally to see that our mission succeeds. You will also be provided with a rather... unique... escort.
You will then send these champions on critical missions throughout Kul Tiras and Zandalar.
You have been reliable thus far -- I trust you will not fail me.

Nathanos Blightcaller and Garona
Your strikes on Alliance targets have been most impressive, Garona. I admit, I wondered if your loyalties might be...
Because I was once befriended by the young king's grandfather£ I murdered him, if you recall.
I am familiar with the tale. I also know that killing Llane Wrynn was not your choice.
No. And you are doubtless aware that I have worked with the Alliance when it served my purposes. But I owe them nothing. The Horde is my home.
Good. The Alliance deserves no sympathy. No quarter. Make them suffer, and the Dark Lady will reward you.
I caused the downfall of one king. Perhaps it is time I ended the reign of another.
The zeal with which you attack the Alliance seems born of more than deference to your queen, Blightcaller.
I once fought for their cause. The Alliance's insufferable arrogance has increased tenfold since they turned their backs on us.
Turned their backs£
When the Lich King's hold over us was broken, Sylvanas sought allies. Instead of embracing their fallen kin of Lordaeron, the humans spurned us. Hunted us. So I vowed to hunt them.
Vengeance fuels you. I can appreciate that.
Vengeance. Contempt. Call it what you will.
When the last of his subjects has been slain and raised Forsaken, the boy-king will kneel before the Dark Lady. And at long last, there will be but one queen to rule them all.

Burning of Teldrassil
< Shandris's keen eyes scan the horizon. She nods at you in acknowledgement. >
What is your strategy, Shandris£
My strategy£
Find Sunwatcher, then fill him with arrows.

Darkness... Sylvanas... is this what you saw... what you wished to save us from£
Shandris, it's been... two, three thousand years£ To think we'd meet again like this.
I am destined to live for eternity, I will not die here!
You should have died a long time ago, Areiel. We're here to see that happens.
It's a shame you're fighting alongside this filthy human, Shandris! Such short, insignificant lives.
Even in your final moments, you fail to see the true potential of humans.

Shan'do! I came as quickly as I could! I saw the Warchief headed towards Zoram'gar outpost.
She has come for us, Delaryn. The Warchief has come to capture the World Tree.
Our troops, Shan'do -- Tyrande sent them to defend our outpost in Silithus days ago.
Then there is still time! Delaryn, go forth and muster as many troops as possible from our nearby outposts.
$n, travel to Darnassus. Gather as many able-bodied soldiers as you can, but do not leave the city unguarded.
I will intercept our fleet and bring them back to Darnassus.
Now, make haste! This wall will slow them down, but it will not hold forever.
You may pass through the wall unharmed, $n. The wisps will not harm you.
I'm on it!

General Feathermoon, the Horde have invaded Darkshore!
We must take action! Sentinels, forward face!
Fourth Fleet, you are to reinforce the southern border of Darkshore! Bring the Glaive Throwers!
Fifth Fleet, create a ley line at the Wildbend River! Rouse our allies at the Grove of the Ancients!
Hippogryph Archers, come with me -- we will regroup in Lor'danel and remain vigilant as a mobile response unit!
That leaves you, hero. Report back to Captain Summermoon and reinforce that border!
I have something that can help.

The Horde has set fire to the buildings! Put them out before the whole valley goes up in flames!
Good work! The fires recede, and we still have our homes. Thank you.
The Horde has returned in force to try and finish the job. Stop them by any means necessary!
They are driven back for now, and the town still stands. We owe you our lives.
We have managed to seize another one of the Horde's siege weapons. Time to turn the tables on their forces!
Hah, you sure sent them packing! It will take some time for their forces to mobilize again. Good work.

Blood Prince Dreven and Gallywix
We will deal with Blood Prince Dreven soon, General. But this is a rare opportunity to cripple the Horde's military. Everything else must wait.
We can kill that gluttonous goblin any day! If Dreven escapes, we may never find him again.
Gallywix funds the Horde's war campaign and understands Azerite better than the rest of them.
You saw what Dreven was capable of, Wyrmbane. What if there are more like him£
Forgive my interruption, but I believe you're both right.
We cannot let either of these opportunities escape us... And we don't need to.
Allow your new allies, the void elves, to lead the charge in eliminating Gallywix.
We will hunt him down and bring you his head, while Shandris maintains our focus on tracking that Blood Prince.
A wise strategy. I approve.
Thank you, Alleria. Your aid is most welcome.

The Tortollan
Let's go over the plan to kill Captain Areiel.
Captain Areiel's death will cripple the Horde's operations within Nazmir and weaken Sylvanas's dark rangers.
We need information and allies within Nazmir to achieve this. Lucky for us, we have an opportunity. Keeshan£
Thank you, ma'am. Several tortollan have been captured by blood trolls nearby. We know the tortollan have helped the Horde within Nazmir.
We save the tortollan, we get information about the Horde's movements, which should lead us to Captain Areiel.
We move out now. $n will take point. The rest of us will provide support and scout ahead. Keeshan, that includes you.
Ma'am.

Brother Zelling
No, but can you answer my question£ When you become Forsaken, are you purged of any sicknesses£
It's not exactly a science, becoming Forsaken. You might stay the same, become a completely different person... or maybe you might actually just die.
Did Captain Stone go mad when she turned£ I'm well aware of what happened to her.
We all go a little mad when we become Forsaken. Some more than others.

Alright, Zelling. Do you understand, truly understand, what's about to happen£
Yes! Eternal life, granted to me at last, I am ready for it!

Zelling! Damn you, we need you alive!
Miss Voss, please... bring me back... I must help my family... I'll do anything... anything...
You'll be shunned if you become one of us. You look in a mirror and all you'll see is a monster.
I would... damn my soul... for all eternity... if it meant my family's happiness... please! You must...
You... must...
Lilian. We can find other tidesages. You know his family won't accept him.
We'll see, maybe it can be different, just this one time.
Lilian Voss. Why have you called upon me£
Bring this man back. He has been chosen to become Forsaken.
As you command, by the power granted to you from Lady Sylvanas.
I... I live! Haha! I must go see Julia and the children, they will be delighted!
... I guess we'll have to see what happens now.

For the last time, STAY BACK! You are NOT my husband!
Why won't you UNDERSTAND£! It's me, your husband... children it's your daddy!
Stay away!
Momma I'm scared of the zombie!
Daddy is right here, just listen to my voice! Why aren't you understanding this£!
Keep it away!
Momma help us!
Quiet!
Leave us be!
Get it away!
Make the monster go away!
THAT'S ENOUGH!
I... I...
I don't know who you are, but my husband NEVER tried to hurt me or his children. We are leaving... do not follow us!
No... Julia... Matthew... Hannah... what have I done£ What.. am I£
I tried to warn you, Zelling. The process changes you. People won't accept you anymore.
And what am I left with£ Become a mindless servant to Sylvanas£
You serve no one. Join the Forsaken and carve your own path. You'll be amongst those who accept you for what you've become.
I will join the you... and help you find Captain Valentine. As long as you promise that my family remains unharmed.
You have my word. Come. $n, return to Nathanos and inform him that we have what we need.

Athair, Heart of the Forest
One day while Lord Arom was hunting for food in the forest he came upon a massive white stag.
The stag had been attacked by the Drust and had killed many but was injured.
Lord Arom's people needed food and the massive deer would feed many, but he decided not to strike.
"Anyone who can fight off so many Drust is someone I wish to have in my forests," he thought. So Lord Arom healed the stag's injuries.
The stag bounded into the woods and Arom made camp.
In the night, the Drust attacked!
Lord Arom stood against ten warriors! He fought valiantly and with cunning but he was out numbered and surrounded!
Determined to take down as many warriors as he could, he held his ground.
A mighty bellow came from the forest!
The white stag returned and trampled some of the Drust!
Together Arom and the White Stag fought the warriors and defeated them.
"Thank you, my friend," Arom said to the stag.
"You are welcome. I was repaying the kindness you showed me."
"By the light! You can speak!" Arom exclaimed!
"I am Athair, the Heart of this forest. As long as I exist, I shall protect you and yours should they come to me," the stag said.
The he turned and vanished into the woods. Since then, the valiant and true have found shelter with the White Stag of the forest.

Gaston
No one strikes like Gaston!
Whirls with spikes like Gaston!
No one's magic decoys look lifelike like Gaston's!
I cannot die, I'm... Gas..ton...

After 15 years at Blizzard and almost 10 years working on Hearthstone, I have made the incredibly difficult decision to embark on a new journey.

Man, that was a hard sentence to type.

I was 20 years old when I started here. My first role was ‘Night Crew Game Tester.’

Since then, Blizzard has been good to me. I got to cast esports events, announce BlizzCons, play in Rock Bands, write raps, and work with incredible people. But the biggest opportunity came in 2008 when I joined “Team 5.” The Hearthstone Team.

I am very proud of Hearthstone. I think we made an impact on the industry. People tell me that Hearthstone brought their family closer together, or that they became close friends with people they met at a Fireside Gathering. Others tell me they were inspired by Hearthstone to become game developers themselves. It’s incredible to be a part of something that touches so many people.

But as proud as I am of Hearthstone, I am even more proud of the team.

There is no team like the Hearthstone team. People have come and gone over the 10 years Hearthstone has been in development, but there’s something special about the Soul of the Team. We knew our most important product wasn’t the game, but the team itself. A great team can do great things, and I think the Hearthstone team is the greatest. It isn’t just a job. It’s a shared passion. We get to come to work and focus on the game we love and try to make it better every day.

We frequently check the Hearthstone subreddit looking for opportunities to improve the game. I have loved the silly memes, engaging in spirited debates, or even just being held accountable to our shared high standards for the game. We try to be highly available on social media, and I think our team helped push the envelope in this regard. It has been especially satisfying to me to see the team step up over the last few years and help engage in these ways as I became more focused on direction and less on actual design.

I get too much credit by virtue of being a public face, but the 80+ people on the development team are still there, and they are the ones actually making the cards, brawls, events, missions, and features. I am confident the game is in the best possible hands, and I’m excited to see where a new generation of leaders takes Hearthstone from here.

I am very fortunate to be able to take a crazy risk right now in my life, and I’m excited to be scrappy and a little scared. I’m going to help start a new company. We’ll probably make games, but we haven’t figured anything else out, yet. I’m looking forward to designing, programming, and actually creating things again. I’m going to miss the on-campus Starbucks, though. Dang.

Blizzard, thank you for taking a chance on me, and thank you for taking a chance on Hearthstone. I can’t wait to see what you do next.

And to the passionate community of players – I will miss you, and the laughs we shared together. Thank you for making being a part of Hearthstone so much fun for me. I’ve loved every minute.

Sincerely,

Ben Brode

Upcoming Island Expedition Changes

4/19 - These changes will be in the next build:
  • A tutorial quest and island are now available at level 115. Players must complete the tutorial quest to unlock Expeditions. This unlock is account-wide.
  • Normal mode requires level 110+
  • Heroic, Mythic, and PvP require level 120
  • At the start of the Island, 3 high-value targets will appear in the fog on your map as red X's, giving your party some initial direction.
  • Two new islands are available: Molten Cay and Dread Chain.
  • Around 800 new creatures have been added (some will lack abilities)
  • New end of island invasions: Naga, Black Dragons, Twilight Dragons, Saurok, Trolls
  • End of island invasions now have a pre-spawn visual (so they don't spawn on top of you)
  • New chest type: puzzle. Find levers, pressure plates, etc. needed to open an ancient chest.
  • Questgiver required objects (e.g. Torch, Shovel) spawn closer to their questgivers
  • Visual updates to skyboxes, times of day, and weather effects.

Of note, we now put three red "X marks the spot" markers on your map at the start of the island. These are always some of the most high value targets on the island, and should give your party some initial direction about where to go. Also it feels very pirate-y.

The red markers will also show up when an Azerite growth event occurs, at the site of the growth, and when end of island invasions occur, at those sites.

We've got a bunch more invasions and a ton more creatures in this build as well!

In addition, you'll now be queueing for a random island, and three islands are unlocked: Un'gol Ruins, Molten Cay, and Dread Chain.

Feedback Request: The current plan is to have three islands available every week on a rotation. Since we now have three available, we'd like to hear from you about how many times you'd like to engage in this content during the week. Hop in, run a few during the next week, and let us know what you're feeling!

After getting used to the Judgement Window and learning how to cram everything into it, I am still glad to see it go
Same honestly. I think it was fun and different but I'm very excited to see how BfA Ret goes.

I'm super happy as well that Crusade right now is not looking to be the go to talent as I wasn't a fan of the Crusade burst window. It was fun seeing the numbers but I'm happy overall to see other options in that talent row like Inquisition become more viable when you're looking at sustained damage versus burst.

Retribution was very strong in Legion however the BfA changes have the ability to smooth out our weak spots and make things like Crusade not look so dominant and open up playstyles we haven't had in awhile and I very much welcome that. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Weekly Bonus Event - Legion Dungeons
The Legion Dungeon Event is live this week!

Look for the following all week long:

  • Archmage Timear near Violet Hold in Dalaran has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.
    • Quest requirement: Complete 4 Legion dungeons on Mythic difficulty.
    • Rewards: One loot box containing a piece of gear from Heroic difficulty Antorus.
  • Passive bonus: The final boss in each dungeon drop additional loot on all difficulties (except Mythic Keystone difficulties).

PvP Brawl - Gravity Lapse

Every other week, a new PvP Brawl will be available to players looking for something just a little different. Each Brawl will offer a variety of modes, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay, and you’ll find them in the Group Finder tool (hotkey “I”) in the Player vs. Player tab. Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory. Here are just a few of the Brawls you can look forward to:

Gravity Lapse


Gravity getting you down£ Step into the Eye of the Storm and be prepared for a whole new en-lighten-ing experience. Every minute, players on the battlefield will find themselves launched into the air, only to gently fall toward the ground again in a perpetual aerial ballet as they try to accrue enough resources to take the win home for their team.
