New Brawler – Carl!

A brand new pickaxe wielding Brawler is coming later in March!

  • Super Rare Brawler
  • Main attack: Pickaxe
    • Carl has only one ammo slot which is instantly recharged after his Pickaxe returns
    • Pickaxe returns to Carl after reaching max distance or after hitting a wall
    • Pickaxe pierces through enemies
    • Kicking the ball in Brawl Ball does not consume ammo with Carl
  • Super attack: Tailspin
    • Carl increases his speed and starts to whirl his Pickaxe in a 360 degree radius damaging everyone around him
  • Star Power: Power Throw
    • Pickaxe flight speed is increased allowing it to travel and return faster

New Game Mode – Siege!

  • 3v3 game mode
  • Each team has a home base that can defend itself with a cannon, and the goal is to destroy the enemy base
  • Each team tries to collect “Bolts” that spawn in the middle of the map. The team that has collected more Bolts will construct a Robo during certain intervals of the game, the team can then help the Robo to push into the enemy base
  • Since this game mode lasts longer, there are DOUBLE trophies, rewards, and XP!
  • New in-game environment
  • 3 New Maps

Game Balance

  • Heist – Increased Safe health from 36000 to 40000
  • Robo Rumble – After robots enrage in Robo Rumble, they will target the safe
  • Showdown – Healing Mushrooms: Decreased the amount of healing mushrooms in the later part of the game
  • Increased Brawler item (Gems, Energy Drinks, etc) pick-up radius from 1 tile to 1.33 tiles

New Community Maps!

  • Showdown – 4 New Maps
  • Gem Grab – 7 New Maps
  • Brawl Ball – 1 New Map
  • Launch Pads! New interactive map element

Our best guess is that Launch Pads allow the Brawler to jump over walls.

New Event Rotation

  • Showdown moved exclusively to the 2nd slot, some of the maps have active modifiers
  • Siege added to the 4th slot
  • Rotation adjusted to include the new maps and Siege

New Skin! (Coming soon!)

This probably refers to the new Nightwitch Mortis skin.

  • Pam
  • Barley
  • Penny
  • Mortis
  • Royal Agent Colt

  • New Clash Royale birthday menu music

Quality of life improvements

  • Ability to sort Brawlers in the Brawler menu and when selecting a Brawler
  • Do not Disturb mode – Ability to mute game invites for the duration of the session, can be set from the social menu
