PvP Brawl - Warsong Scramble

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.

Warsong Scramble – Capture the Flag
Do you have a flag? Warsong Gulch has always been the scene of an epic Capture the Flag battle, but what happens when you can capture your enemy’s flag without your own at base? Find out when you step into this PvP Brawl! We’ve also added a few more power-ups to the field of battle to stir things up a bit. To win, your team will need to be the first to capture 5 flags.

    Is Junkertown: The Plan not the animated short? That'd actually be nice, as I didn't think it was nearly as good as the older ones.

    Why isn't there a Draenei in Heroes of the Storm yet? It's the last missing WoW Race...

    Yrel or Velen?

    Oh yay, Levantus for the hundreth time. How about moving those to be last in the "queue" and let those spawn that have never spawned?

    No. Mad Max. Borderlands is a rip off of Mad Max.

    Mad Max is a movie, not a game... borderlands is a game and so is overwatch.
    So that map has borderlands vibe to it, mad max hardly had super heroes flying around in high tech equipment.

    Also, lol Dreadlord Jaina. Finally confirmed by Blizzard.

    Now will you guys shut up?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also, the Brawl seems confusing. I had my flag I was carrying disappear a few times on me. and unreliably as well.

    and Blizzard needs to update their thing its 10 caps not 5.

    - - - Updated - - -

    also, should I have played Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel?

    - - - Updated - - -

    also, it was either the PVP videos or another tear of Raid Content.

    Guess which they chose?

    I'm out of the loop with some parts of wow lore and this meme of a dreadlord Jaina. Could someone fill me in on the history of the meme and what exactly it means for Jaina to be a dreadlord?

    A few BlizzCons ago, there was a Q&A question about why Jaina had such a seemingly sudden change of personality, and a popular YouTuber named JesseCox jokingly suggested that she was a dreadlord in disguise and the real Jaina was dead.

    It just snowballed from there.
