New season is starting.Nita is meta.Gear rework in October.
Trust the plan.
The game takes even longer to load the match, and by the time it start there's already some fucker attacking me with an OP brawler. Also they seem to have removed 7 maps in showdown for no fucking reason, which sucks because some of them provide a little more advantage for long/mid range brawlers, and not only tanks, assassins and legendary (which is like 80% of what everyone uses).What the fuck are they doing?
Just lost 50 trophies trying to get sprout to rank 20. Loser's queue is real.
Sam seems really clunky based on the footage I've seen thus far.
>again there is no Safety Center in rotationAt least Skull Creek is back.
If you guys had to rework one brawler, who would it be and what would you do?
>>981833otis is hot garbage. not sure how I will change his kit.In for the grind on lola powerleague skin.Do anyone know when Gus comes out?
>>981862Honestly, I was going to say I would change Otis too. He has interesting potential to shut down an enemy. Lol I'm on the same grind for the Lola skin too. Say what you will, but BS knows how to make some fine women
>>981833Maybe Meg, all her gadgets and star powers are deffensive. Instead of that stupid tool box that nobody uses they could have given her something like a rocket launcher, a bomb or the ability to break walls with her robot arms, idk.
>>981862They said it was for the end of september, i'm saving boxes from the brawl pass to get him as soon as possible, good thing is super rare.
>>981862otis is probably the most boring chromatic. only brawl pass i didn't get.
>>981869I like the idea of being able to have a star power that tightens Meg's mech's spread. Instead of hitting a wide area, you would now have a much more narrow projectile path. You could hit only one or two enemies instead of a group, but you could focus on doing damage to a single enemy instead of crowd control.The toolbox would work if it allowed Meg's mech to deal extra damage but increase the amount of health lost per second. Overcharge it or something.>>981877Yeah, the Deep Sea Brawl felt so empty it's no wonder that the team released a video detailing their plans for the future. I was expecting something along the lines of paintball bombs in the arena that you and your team could shoot to detonate or a pirate queen skin for Penny.
>>981866Everything about her skin is pretty much great. Only thing, I didn't really like her face makeup.It helps that I love the steampunk/western attire. Had many faps towards clementine from westworld.
>>981833Egar.You either get fucked or you do the fucking.There's no inbetween.
>>981869Honestly hate playing as Meg. She's weak on her own, trying to get damage in for the Super is a pain. Honestly, I'd take dealing a less damage if it meant I get to keep the robot instead of it dropping health.
>>981892Edgar is unbalanceable. He will be either too OP in solo or team comp
>>981833I always thought that Bibi's first hit should stun an enemy if they were to hit a wall, but maybe that might be busted given she can follow u real quick with her swings.
>>981833Rework ash so he doesnt have the highest dps, sky high health, longest melee range, and movement speed boosts. Retardedly broken brawler
>>982973*angry scot noises intensify*
What’s the best way to get more purple goypoints? Really want that Lola skin
>>983665You can only get them at end of Trophy League and during Power League.
>>983665if you low trophy brawlers, grind it out on them, then their the challenges which will gain you starpoints for beating.But just get the 60 win challenges first. You can always get her down the line.
The game has collapsed..
Friendly reminder that ash still has the highest dps, longest melee range, sky high health, instant healing, and movement speed boosts. The dude in charge of balance needs to be fired.
got otis from the free box. too bad he's so boring.
havent played in 5 months. is the game still shit?
>>984764he's only good on maps with a lot of grass/walls and can easily be countered. he's very good but he's not as broken as you think he is
New PvE mode feels so gimmicky, screw running around the arena to get the coins and hope that the other two players don't drop
>>986185>easily countered Unless youre on an open map with no bushes and walls, which are very few, then thats just not true at all
>>987568It's literally the same old safe defense game but this time the safe moves.
>>987881>but this time the safe moves.Right in the direction of the enemies, right into the waiting arms of the Gold Punches and the Gold Roombas, right into the loss screen over and over and overUnless 8-bit can be wrangled into a corner and shut off there, it's a horrible experience
>>984534Oh I thought I had to get 25 before the season ends. So I can just get my 5k reward from end of season and then buy her later?
>>988418You can cage 8bit in a number of ways, really the only option seems to be to not fight the bots, at all.I got to insane 16 yesterday using the “get 8bit’s ass into a wall and leave him there” strat. The difficulty (if you are not exploiting the bots AI) is overtuned and the mode becomes nigh impossible around insane 4 or 5. The entire mode is mechanically flawed for the map is too large and the bots too many to both defend 8bit and take advantage of the extra coins. It doesn’t help that 8bit’s AI is utterly and hopelessly retarded with his love of hugging any enemy in sight, big boss in particular. Healing him is not worth as he will just get himself killed as soon as you do, so in the end you have a safe that you can kite around for a while with far less hp and with harder waves than robo rumble.
"Turn into a cat if you have felt the warmth of a woman"Edgar, Mortis, and Crow players:
What's going on with the loading time? Can't even play doubles without being within 1 second of dying to already active teams
Finally have all brawlers on at least power level 10 (except Sam). 12 brawlers are on power level 11. Looking forward to the gear changes.
>>991178I been having issues as well.Finally had good team mates and won one of those challenges thing.Wish I would have won with the lion emote.Not sure why they brought back the big robot gimmick for this challenge. Feel like they should reserve it for once in awhile and not exhaust it.
>sam just bounces his super off the wall to heal from 200 hp to full in about 3 secondsis this intentional?
>completely ruins the game balanceheh, nothing personal kid
I guess Gus is coming out in six days.
fuck brosI accidentally bought the stupid mega box deal near the free item of the day.So fucking annoying.Had enough gems to buy next season pass and a 150 skin (if any of the halloween skins are good)
>>995843It was already ruined
>>981963Bibi main hereI think Bibi is falling off and what she needs is a mechanism for keeping up with the first hit's knockback. Because right now if a competent enemy is keeping distance from you it becomes impossible to kill them unless you surprise them from a bush or they have their backs against a wall, because your first hit will knock them away from your range.If it was a star power I'd take it over both of her current starpowers
I have permanently banned Sam from all my Power League games, he will not be permitted to play with me under any circumstances forever
>>996243You just don't get it it was 3x the value!!Seriously though fuck supercell, at one point or another I'd like to make a yt video about ftp monetization.
>>996700Like, maybe an instant speed boost?
I don't think Sam is even that good. He struggles against tank counters often more than other tanks.
>>996844I usually exclusively banned EMZ.Hate that bitch.I usually play with Bibi though
>>996849Don't know why these pricks put the 60 retarted gem mega box next to the free token of the day.I wonder how frequently this happen in the algorithm This is why I will never deposit money for these jabroni
>>997253Why would you ban EMZ as Bibi? Just get the speed starpower and rush her down.
>>997144he is retardedly broken, you can just spam your super against a wall and have perma speed boost and the sp is also super busted and gives him basically infinite hp regen
Surprise balance changes. Gus got buffed prerelease.
>otis now does 8280 damage with three shots>extra 1530 damage from his superActually fucking busted.
>>998028ALSO, since his super now deals damage, it actually recharges itself by 25% of full charge.
>>998032Similar to crow's poison, otis's super now makes enemies visible in bushes and makes it take more time for them to start healing.
>>998019>sam, carl, griff, and the stunt show bitches have the game in a choke hold>nerf Surge and make otis brokenThese people have no idea what theyre doing huh
>>998077They actually did buff-nerf stu in this update.
>>998079that percentage of additional hp is shit, the only reason he became good again was because of the glitch
Sam is an FtM transgender, hence the name Sam (Samantha->Sam)He’s stunning and brave and if you don’t like him being the best brawler in the game you’re a hateful bigot acting in bad faith
Has Otis redeemed himself?
I hate user maps but love launching people into the gas with the spring pads during showdown
>>998077it's actually fucking insane how janet and bonnie are still so broken. the balance guy is clueless
>>1002235Stats don't support your claim.
Do I max Sam or Gus first? Sam sp looks broken but I'm not guaranteed to open it
First impressions of Gus?
>>1002859Both feel very clunky. But if you're desperate for a new playable character, Gus if you want to play as a team, Sam if you want to solo curbstomp noobs.
Now that we've reached 60 brawlers, how many more can Supercell add until it becomes too much?
Can supercell just accept that Carl is a failed concept and remove him from the game already? He is probably the most broken brawler in the game's history. His entire existence has been either being op as fuck or bottom of the barrel trash. He hasnt been, isn't, and will never be balanced and they should just rip the band aid off now before more people leave because of shit balance.
>>1002996Don't use Carl much, I know they changed his coal gadget and that's it. What makes him busted?
>>997288She a hard encounter to Bibi especially once she uses her super.
>>1002971It's already too much. They need to slow down and come up more original ideas.
Why did they even need to buff otis? He was already an excellent brawler who had high damage, easy to land shots to prevent healing, broken super, and great gadget. Why make a strong brawler even stronger instead of fixing shit brawlers?
>>1002997A lot of the problem lies in his main attack, when his attack speed is too slow he cant land his damage consistently thus making him shit but when he can land it consistently he becomes oppressive because its such a good attack (good zoning, can hit brawlers behind walls, can do unload lots of damage using walls to lower reload speed). Supercell doesnt like touching his damage numbers for some reason which would be the best bet at balancing him. Also his super + flying hook gadget + protective pirouette SP make him one of the best assassins in the game.Carl just has so many delicate pieces in his kit that can make him broken if made a little too strong and shit tier if made too weak. I do not think the retard in charge of balancing is up to the challenge of maintaining him so it would probably be best to rework him or just remove him since his character is annoying as hell anyways
>>1003685otis was complete dogshit before the buff
I fucking hate playing with new noobs in the 8 bit game mode.dumb fucks keep running to the stupid coin.
LIVE through 16 rounds of Knockout?For 500 points?Fuck that, rerolling, get the fuck out of here
>>1003954No he wasnt lol. He was very good just outclassed by certain brawlers which of course made tier list fags put him low
I’m literally crying right now I can’t understand why god is punishing me like this every power league game i have literal children picking level 1 characters or playing like bots. I win 1 for every 4 losses and demoted 50 times and every win I have to fight tooth and nail for
>>1004208Anon know when to quit, if the game wants to tilt you to oblivion, IT WILL, no amount of extra games will change that. Give it a go another day.
>>1004208I went 0-4 on the last challenge, lmao, couldn't even be mad any more at my teammatesWelcome to loser's quene
>>1004208Solo queue is hell no matter where you are, as soon as you get out of low elo mexican shitty hell you start getting sweatlords who will throw the game at the drop of a hat. Getting a team is the only way to play power league while keeping your sanity intact.
>>1003944First step to balancing Carl is getting rid of power throw. It's not nearly as interesting a star power as protective pirouette and only serves to make it harder to balance his pickaxe speed because they constantly have to consider how fast his pickaxe will be with this starpower. Carl's pickaxe speed is the single most important and delicate stat in his whole kit and power throw just makes it more difficult to balance. Once they get rid of power throw they can just lower his pickaxe speed by 3% a patch until his win rates are acceptable instead of doing massive changes every 2 months and making Carl op or garbage.Its not just Carl, Supercell balance team fucking up the meta is on purpose, look at recent changes for example. First they over nerf sandy to oblivion, then they give huge buffs to poco. Poco got insane 14% damage boost. Its obvious poco was going to end up OP, they just wanted to shake up the mid range meta which sandy dominated for so long
>>1004024He had some of the worst win rates in the game at both high and low ladder, 0 competitive usage and the meta for example with Max is just bad for him cause harder to hit shots on fast people. Now he does a lot more damage so don't have to hit as often and super does damage recharging itself makes it so much better at recycling it and shutting down enemies supers. He was garbage now he's op
>>1004306Carl's Power Throw has always been a set value, in fact it only got changed (nerfed) once since it was added.The reason he is OP now is partly because the meta makes his usual counters unviable and partly because the base projectile speed buff made Protective Pirouette the choice star power for Carl.If anything Protective Pirouette needs a nerf.
>that fucking mortis
I've literally never in my life tried joining a "Club",what are your guys' experiences with them?Would you guys join mine if I made one?
>>1006319I won't join your gay club but I will tell you that you're missing huge amount of progression by not being in one. You get 700+ club points per week, which you can use to buy ~1200 power level points for any brawler of your choosing. Every. Fucking. Week.
>>1005992No way penny has a win rate that high, literally every penny player is braindead
I can’t figure out if I really enjoy playing Gus or just cause he’s OP
>>1006795I don’t get even nearly as many club points. Is it dependent on the club? Like how active the members are? I’m progressing very slowly because my only way to get upgrade material is through chests.
>>1008876You need to join an active club with almost full members to get the max rewards. The league your club is in doesn't really matter, though it will naturally be high if people are active.
>>1008957I’ll have to look for another club then. I’ve been playing on and off since launch but I barely have any brawlers at power level 9 and it takes me forever to get them there
Another balance patch without a nerf to undoubtedly the most broken brawler in brawl stars, Ash. No counterpicks, no counterplay, just run into the enemy and win
best gears for Bull? Also what’s the better star power
>>1009479In my eyes, the gadgets are pretty much equal. Shield SP is generally better but the reload one can have some use in heist.
>>1009940Damage gear and/or speed gear for bushy maps.
>>1009942Thanks, I’ve just been using reload cause it’s more fun desuSo damage/heath or damage/shield in a non bushy map?
>>1010035Damage+shield is a useful all-rounder since the star power helps you keep the gear active longer. On really bushy maps, you can opt to switch the gear to speed.
Jacky Frank Meg Sandy I have below power 9 but I'm not sure I wanna bother leveling them up. Any counterarguments for any of them?
>>1010552New gear system will make all of them viable.
Sam is great fun. Perma speed boost on demand on a melee feels pretty broken. Sadly I don't have the gadget or the star power yet, but he feels like an unstoppable racecar with just his basic kit.Hate getting his gloves stuck though, and picking them up is a bit clunky sometimes.
>>1011338He's getting nerfed hard at the end of the season.
How to find an active club to join? I'm around 20k trophies.
>>1011904There's a search club function in the game. Just pick the highest trophy club it shows you.
