Brawl Talk – Once Upon a Brawl

NEW Chromatic Brawler: ASH!

New Chromatic Brawler Ash

Ash is the newest Chromatic addition to Brawl Stars, coming in Brawl Pass season 8. “The Trash Knight” is a cleaner at the castle courtyard and has a suit of armor made from a trash bin. He is a mid-range, high-health Brawler with decent DPS.

In addition, Ash has a Rage Bar that filled up as he hits enemies or when he takes damage. When the Rage Bar is fully filled, he gets stronger and moves faster for a short period of time.

Ash’s Attack

Ash’s attack is strikingly similar to that of Nita’s – he sends out a shockwave that hits all enemies in its range. However, unlike Nita, Ash’s attack has a delay of around 0.5s (similar to Frank/Bibi). Furthermore, his reload speed is comparable to Bull’s, so you don’t waste your ammo.

Ash’s Super

His Super launches a projectile that can go over walls and releases 5 R.A.T.S. bots. These bots have little health and will go towards the nearest enemy Brawler and explode on impact or when destroyed.

NEW Modified Game mode: Showdown+

Showdown+ is a new, modified version of regular Showdown that will be here for a limited time while Supercell tests the game mode. Showdown+ aims to further discourage teaming by rewarding more trophies to players who get more kills.

You will earn trophies for killing enemies but also lose trophies for dying*. Showdown+ will be in its own slot for the duration of the Once Upon a Brawl Brawl Pass season.

*The end screen shows losing 1 trophy for getting defeated, so this is what I interpret it as.

Future Club Changes & Features

In the Brawl Talk, Paula and Pani revealed that in one of the next updates, they are planning to release a series of improvements for Clubs. In the video, Dani said that “[We] are developing something that will bring Clubmates closer together.”

“[We] are developing something that will bring Clubmates closer together.”


However, in order to do this, they will need to reduce Club sizes to just 30 members. You will have at least 30 days to make changes yourself to reorganize your Clubs. If you can’t find a solution yourself, the Brawl Stars team will give a solution later on. This is a drastic change, so be prepared!
