Brawler's Arena cooldowns

Can we please have our cooldowns reset upon finishing a Brawler's Arena fight (win or lose)? It's kinda annoying having to wait several minutes between fights with nothing to do but sit there when no one else is brawling.

PS: I hate the Dark Summoner.

I would also find this very beneficial.

P.S.
I hated the Dark Summoner, too. But I finally got him. I wanted to fight him again just to reassure the victory!

We are happy with the way cooldowns currently work for abilities in the Brawler’s Guild. Most of them should reset by the time the next fight begins (Yes, not all do but most fall into this category). Right now we don’t want to expand what types of content are given the free temporary respec and cooldown resets. Adding these to an element of PvE might lead to a slippery slope.

I can understand but the time between your matches might not be very predictable meaning you either have to sit there or take your chances that your cooldowns will be ready by the next match.

can we get some sort of full buff system at least, or let there be a brawlers soulwell. Or is the intention to remove these group buffs.

and if the queues are short enough that you arent having 10min cds up every fight you really dont have much to complain about

actually, brawlers is empty right now (no queues) and I spend the majority of my time in there sitting around waiting for CD's to reset.

On my shaman I am sitting around for *at least* 5 mins after every fight waiting for my CD's, If I've won a previous fight then I am sitting around for 10 mins. I spend the vast majority of my time in Brawler's sitting around.

Brawlers is already it's own little self-contained thing with a host of spells disabled/unavailable, it's neither pve nor pvp. I fail to see how this would lead to a "slippery slope".

....you should be out slaughtering free range mobs not those poor caged mobs!

it is literally christmas eve. any sort of lines you see right now would be quite irregular. The system as is works well IMO. The only fights you need your long cds up are in the final few ranks, and even then proper playing will get you a lot further than an AotD.

Um, most 5+ minute cooldowns as well as all battle rez's reset after a raid boss dies or wipes you, as well as killing a boss clearing sated. Its already in PvE. And frankly for a good reason, sitting around waiting for cooldowns isn't fun nor does it add anything

Those poor caged mobs are usually slaughtering us.

Ain't that the truth.

With short queues, it's understandable that this can be frustrating. As it populates though, you shouldn't really notice it.

Reset all cooldowns (ALL OF THEM) after a win/loss, give us Brawler's Healthstones from the potion vendor and some sort of combined mega-buff that combines all the class buffs that is just perma when you enter the instance. Or make the mega-buff a consumable purchasable at x rank.

Waiting for cooldowns adds absolutely nothing to gameplay and actively detracts from it. Remember how awful it was waiting on battle rezzes, on waiting for DK army on super tight dps fights, waiting on Doomguard, waiting on Bloodlust. All of that was terrible in raids. It's still terrible in Brawler's Guild.

Waiting around for 5 minutes because we're stuck in a queue (which adds nothing to the game either by the way unless you're on a RP server I guess) isn't any better them sitting around waiting for a CD to finish.

I want to add that I think the Brawler's Guild has been a great addition to the game and I've enjoyed it a lot. But the way it's set up now it turns what should be a good thing (short queues) into something bad because of the cooldown issue.

If you can't win a fight that is meant to be a solo fight without blowing all your mid to long duration CDs; then you probably need to get better at playing your class.

Wise words from someone who hasn't completed a single fight.
