Tavern Brawl Disabled Until Tomorrow (November 14th), Will Return as a Different Brawl

I’ve got some good news, or bad news, depending on whether you wanted to play Brawliseum – Battle of Bans. There were some serious issues with this Brawl – for example, after getting 3 loses players could no longer interact with it in any way, play it etc. Blizzard has decided to disable it after a short while, trying to fix it. Apparently, the problems weren’t that easy to fix and they’ve decided to drop it and give us a new, different Brawl tomorrow. We don’t know what that Brawl will be yet.

We also don’t know what happens to runs in progress (whether players will get rewards or refunds if they paid for them). Or whether players will get another free run (if it’s Brawliseum) or Classic Pack (if it’s not) tomorrow if they already played today.

Hi all – we’ve temporarily disabled the Tavern Brawl mode and expect it to return tomorrow, Thursday the 14th. Some players were encountering some issues after matches have concluded, and these were serious enough that we wanted to take the mode down entirely.

We’re planning to bring the mode back tomorrow and will be rotating in a different Tavern Brawl for the rest of the week. We’ll provide an update at that time to let everyone know that the mode has been enabled again and give you a heads up of what Tavern Brawl we’ve rotated in.

  1. […] locked out of Brawl from 2 weeks ago. It was initially Brawliseum: Battle of the Bans, but due to technical issues, it was switched to Top 3 on the very next day. However, many players were stuck in the Brawliseum […]

    It still disabled until now. So I do think there are other reasons other than crashes in the brawl.
    It’s not the first time we see brawl like this, so I can only think that IMO, there are some breaking-game bug from using repetitive cards, and besides, I don’t think an arena type brawl shouldn’t be this easy to win.

    This Brawl was an awesome idea, literally the most excited I’ve been about anything BLIZZARD in months…and they can’t even get it right and have to take it down within HOURS. Really disappointed, to the point of playing other games more often than not. That Brawliseum actual brought me back in, but now…I dunno…

      Yeah, I totally agree. These brawls give people the chance to rack up gold before the next expansion, so I really hope the replacement brawl is a similar brawliseum.

    Man, I was on an 9-1 run at the time… I hope they compensate for these!!
