From FFXI Wiki

Brenner, similar to Ballista, is a competition event by player who join two teams of 1 to 72 players each.
The goal of Brenner is to light all of your team's "Flammen-Brenner" and then protect the Flamme from the other team for a set amount of time. This is similar to a capture the flag style PvP.

More over, Brenner and Ballista, while considered fun are generally just an event in which players enter to test certain spells or abilities for game mechanic research. Brenner and its predecessor, Ballista are long-forgotten and as a result is unpopular content; although fringe groups and seldom shouts do manifest from time to time.
Thus both Brenner and Ballista are very imbalanced and perhaps even largely unknown to the community due to their release countless years ago and lack of any update or relevance.
