Bold claim: Encounter at the crossroads would be a better ranked ladder format than the real ranked ladder (in terms of better players winning more consistently)
It's true that it tests skills that aren't normally flexed in constructed. In particular, in this Brawl and Arena you have to quest for value without knowing over 80% of your opponent's deck.

I got the stealing hero power card and it didn't work. I used my hero power, and then tried to copy but it didn't copy anything. They had also used their power on their turn. WTF? Is that a bug or is the card even worse because you can't use your power on the same turn?

That would definitely be inconsistent with Shadowform.  I got Nexus Champion Saraad in an arena run and managed to pull off hero power->shadowform-> heropower for two draws, heh.

(then he sucked the rest of the run by grabbing me Innvervate, Preparation, and Ancestral call even though he was my deck's card advantage engine by design..)

What I mean is that it didn't even copy. I still had summon a totem as my hero power afer, not the priest one.

It's apparently a bug. Might be related just to the current Brawl. They are quote "looking into it".

I think they should have just given it the Alexstraza treatment for bosses instead of disabling on a mode by mode basis.

Maybe they didn't want to have the card to just blow up on play in non-heroic mode for whatever reason (it doesn't fit with how they've handled non-heroic adventure bosses so far) while not wanting players to copy hero powers even in non-heroic mode.

I got two of the new warrior legendary in my warrior deck...a thaurrisan later and I played them on T9 and T10.  I drew a nerubian egg, war golem, new kraken, warsong commander, grim patron, and darnassas aspirant.

My opponent resigned.

I got a Nozdormu and I won the game because of how poorly my opponent played his next turn.

Thanks, though experience has shown that them writing extra code tends to mess things up in odd ways you'd never expect.

Best part of the brawl: Opened Grommash in my prize booster.
Worst part of the brawl: It's my third Grommash.

Today I learned that Patient Assassin isn't a neutral minion, but rather a Rogue class minion.

This brawl is such a waste. They could have at least made people only get TGT cards, or biased heavily towards them.

Apparently they announced a different Brawl on Facebook, but deleted that message to hide that they fucked up again.

Wh...why would they do that? Surely someone would have noticed the message before they delete it, making them look even worse after the messup. That's exactly what happened now assuming you are correct.

It could be that the Brawl they were hoping to have (Underdog Brawl) was bugged and so they went back to the Crossroads Brawl, but not everyone got the memo.

I'm a hearthstone n00b and gotta say it feels good to be 5-1 in this week's Brawl...maybe I can actually play this game halfway decent if I have cards to use?  :)

Having good cards definitely helps.  I think Rogue was really shafted in this brawl, because the class really depends on its cheaper spells to set off its combos, but since the cards were determined randomly, you weren't necessarily guaranteed those.

Not so sure about about that. I went 5-0 with Rogue in my first 5 games. Most classes are denied their big combos in this format, so it all depends on how the cards hold up individually and the strength of the hero power. Rogue has a good hero power for this format and a bunch of tempo-oriented cards. Most of the weapon synergy cards like Goblin Autobarber and Buccaneer are good value. Yeah it's a bit harder to take advantage of combo cards like SI7 and Defias Ringleader, but that just means you play other low drops first and those combo cards later on, like on Turn 5 or later.

IMHO, this brawl is total randomfest and doesn't deserve play after you get your booster.
