PvP Brawls are a Player vs. Player feature, similar to the Tavern Brawls of Hearthstone, it is designed to give battlegrounds a degree of unpredictability and promote the feeling of evergreen content.
Each brawl is intended to last only a week, though there won't be one every week. Those revealed so far include tweaks to existing battlegrounds and the possible inclusion of arena maps.
- Southshore vs Tarren Mill - 40 vs 40 team deathmatch-styled battles that span from Southshore to Tarren Mill.
- Warsong Scramble - Instant-cap, multi-flag Warsong Gulch; in this iteration, a player can cap the flag even if their team flag is absent. Furthermore, there are additional flags placed at each base and the victory conditions have increased from 3 flag captures to 10.
- Packed House - a 15 vs 15 Arena match
- Gravity Lapse - Takes place in Eye of the Storm. Gravity lapses every minute, shooting all players into the air allowing them to fly around for a few seconds.
