"World of Warcraft" Brawl: Packed House
World of Warcraft: Legion came with a bunch of new features and one of those features is the weekly PvP Brawl. This is a fun player versus player mode with weird rules and premises. In this article, we're looking at the Packed House brawl which is quite a simple but fun brawl.
The gist for this brawl is that there are two teams, each made up of 15 players. These two teams need to fight each other but they need to do so on regular Arena maps, which are designed for 2v2 or 3v3 combat.
Make Sure to Turn Down Your Graphics Quality
Sounds fun right? It is! The problem with this brawl consists in the fact that you might need to take your graphic options down a bit if your computer is not strong enough (like mine). The frames per second will drop drastically when you have 30 people casting spells and running around in such a small area.
I had to take down my graphics quality from 7 down to 4 so I could enjoy this mode. Otherwise my frames would just tank and I wouldn’t be able to do anything for the whole match.
Remember, It's a Deathmatch
I forgot to mention, there is one more thing about this brawl. It is a deathmatch and what that means is that when you die, you’re dead. You won’t be able to resurrect or be resurrected, so you have to be pretty careful so you won’t just die in the first 30 seconds of the game.
Tips and Tricks
For this brawl there is not much to say, since it's basically a quick and fun mode of just spamming everything you have faster than the enemy team. A few tips would be:
Pop your cooldowns from the start.
Keep a close eye on your health bar.
Have a defensive cooldown ready.
Be prepared to run around a pillar.
The Packed House brawl is played on all available 2v2 or 3v3 arenas (which are the same) and those maps are:
- Blade's Edge Arena
- Dalaran Sewers
- Nagrand Arena
- Ruins of Lordaeron
- The Tiger's Peak
- Tol'Viron Arena
- Ashamane's Fall
- Black Rook Hold Arena
A Fun Brawl (Even When You Fail)
This is quite a fun brawl apart from the frame drops which are understandable. Below you will be able to find a video of me failing miserably in this brawl. Check out my other WoW articles and guides for more information about brawls and other aspects of the game.
