I have been playing brawl stars for a very long time now since around its release date and I have had tons of fun but encountered many problems. I believe that for a casual player, this game is great, but for someone who invests more time, the game requires some much-needed changes. A major problem is being matched with players who are throwing/afk. I am frequently in situations where other players are not trying to play for the objective or are are afk. The players that do this lose trophies, but so do you. You can be put into a game with an afk player and lose trophies on their behalf and these actions result in no real punishment for them. This could be ratified by adding an already-needed report system and/or the player losing an increased amount of trophies for throwing and/or being afk. Another problem is with the brawlers releases and balance changes. Sometimes it seems as if Supercell does not actually test the brawler or change before it was implemented and this has resulted in overpowered or underpowered brawlers that break the gameplay for a while. It seems like they have a hard time creating an effective change that does not result in everyone or no one playing the brawler. Supercell will often make bad changes to different aspects of a brawler that will cause frustration among the player base. Also, if you are a player that is seeking a more competitive play style, then I would recommend finding a friend to play with as the matchmaking is not the greatest. If you decide to play with random people, you will often be sorely disappointed with their skill level especially if you are playing with high-trophy brawlers. I played numerous games with randoms and most of the time I wonder how they actually got to the amount of trophies they are at. When doing this, you will often find players who seems like they have no idea what they are doing and often cause you to lose the game because of their poor gameplay. The matchmaking system should be tweaked to place you with people more at your skill level especially in games with high brawler trophies. It seems as if trophies do not represent the skill lever of the player as I frequently come across accounts with high overall trophies but horrible gameplay. All in all, I still recommend this game to people and I believe that with a few changes, the game could be excellent and relieve much of the problems and therefore, the frustration that many people experience.
When I first got this(about four month ago)I thought it was like BORING. But more and more I have played and I love it! I just got Surge,Gale and Penny and Piper,Bebe(I got Bebe and Penny a long time ago I just wanna say)and a lot more people.I have Shelly’s gadget and one some others.But I have one thing to ask.I know this wouldn’t be very fare but if someone go’s into computer can you make them a little more smart?For example,I played with my brother and then his iPod died so he went into computer.He had 39 gems(you probably know this cause no other game has gemgrab)he was being colt and you know that colt has terrible health so he went out to fight(in computer) and died.The other team already had 10 so then that had 50 because when they ran away they grabbed a gem.So they won.Can you please fix this? Also I love friendly game! Another thing, which I’m sooo frustrated about is that when you do big game, Mr.P, his power, it sends out like 5 little things.( you know his super power?) Anyway, they have like soooo much health! There basically invisible! I was being Edgar and 5 came after me, they had like no health left, and killed me! Please make it so only ONE comes out!!!! Another annoying thing is that the people you go against is based on how many trophies you have. But it’s not fair and this is an example why: I just got Max, one of my favorite characters. She’s only at rank one when I played, but when she was at rank 3, I went against all level 10’s! My teammates only at 7 or higher, using there level seven things and trying to beat level ten Amber, the knew puppy guy, and Max! Sooo unfair! Can you make it based on what level there at?!??Another thing, you guys really messed up!!! You guys ruined Crow. There’s nothing cool about him. If you see someone poisoned, you don’t think crow, you think the guys who heals his teammates and poisons poeple. You made that a bare red outshine everyone!!! Sooo enoying! Make crow better!!
i think a lot of people are consistent with complaining about meta, and overpowered brawlers, but in reality; after playing league for 8 years. i personally think this game is extremely balanced and the character design is almost flawless, i think the artists deserve a lot of credit for what they do and the game designers in general do a really excellent job with keeping the game fresh and exciting. but i want to see something that enables more competition. i would love to see something more competitive in terms of a longer game play session, which i understand is entirely what brawl stars isnt. brawl stars is a pick me up 3v3 fast paced moba that packs a lot of potential into characters that have only 1 gadget, one basic attack, one super and a passive star power abilitiy. it creates versatility in each game as well as some real fun ideas for combos. but with that being said, there is totally a way to implement a longer gameplay session involving lanes, towers, and a small system involving gold acquisition and items. nothing too complicated but i think it would add a lot of fun; and create a more exciting competitive environment for players looking for a more interesting gameplay experience. and with league going mobile, i dont fear brawl stars’ fame, since it truly is its own branch in the moba genre. on that behalf, i love this game, my girlfriend and i look forward to playing together every night after work and were both at 10k trophies now. i look forward to watching this game grow. thank you supercell
Majority of players are bots or idle.
BAD random latency, sticky controls, visual bugs, terrible matchmaking, horrible balancing, bots disguised as players, lootboxes with rates to make EA proud, persistent bugs the developers know about, devs have knowledge of people selling accounts/cheats/services, no report function. It all come together in a hot pay to progress mess.
There is no region matching so prepare to play with people from around the world with horrible.
There are some good things the game has like quick matches, decent art and easy uninstall.
It has been made harder to get progression rewards so you will be pushed towards buying lootboxes if you wish to progress.
The amount of people cheating is insane. People taking thousands or tens of thousands of damage over their max health and not dying is 100% normal in Brawlstars. People camping inside the gas in showdown. People with infinite super attacks. People clipping through walls. People teleporting around the map.
I’m going to add onto this to say I tried to report a person in my guild selling cheats and the reply I got was “We don’t care unless he’s actively cheating”
Be aware that if my review disappears again I will report you to Apple for review manipulation. Yes that is an actual thing I can do because I know you routinely remove negative reviews.
At first it was fun then there’s more and more characters that get added and it’s fun to unlock them but every match I play seems to always have worse and worse teammates. Every time a new character gets added or a new gadget, star power there is always another bug that makes the game harder and harder to play giving a huge advantage to whoever has it on top of all of this anytime I hope to just play a fun game on the community maps the maps are always the same with different names or the exact same map with the smallest tweak, one of the maps for showdown has been the same olmost every time and than we have almost the exact same brawl ball map every single time brawl ball pops up and I just can’t play anymore every time I try to play a game to have some fun their are always exploits and really op things that ruin the game and when they get fixed it happens again and I feel like I can’t get a break for me this game has become unplayable and I won’t be playing it for a long time and I wish something would change if you enjoy this game you should keep playing it but it’s not for me.
this review is sourced from a retired somewhat-semipro, stopped playing after amber was released.
25k trophies, maxed account, 8k~ something 3v3 wins.
for the first year-ish of playing it was very enjoyable, i had lots of fun grinding and scrimming to get better. i had spent hundreds on maxing out my account. i want to love this game so bad, but every time i try to get back into this game, i always get burnt out. new characters have dumb mechanics, and balancing favors certain brawlers at a time, rather than the entire roster, leading to burnout of playing the same 5 brawlers for 3 months, until game is balanced again and you get 5 new meta brawlers all over again. as a casual game, this is 5 stars, but the competitive failings of brawl stars puts it at a 3 star for me.
I’m tired of getting teamed up with literal bots and people who have way less trophies than me while facing people with way more trophies. I can literally play 5 games with decent teammates and get like 20+ trophies, but then the next 5 games get paired with bot like people and lose 30+ trophies. You will literally play this game for and hour and only gain 10 trophies, it’s just a waste of time. And y’all need to nerf or remove edgars they are so OP it’s literally stupid, 85% of the time I get killed by an Edgar, it’s dumb how they gain there power over time, they will literally hide until they get it and jump at you and there’s nothing you can do, the game would be so much fun without them
Yes, game won Idiots Game of the Year, it is proven 100% rigged and fixed. Only idiots try the same thing over expecting different results. Editors Choice award is proven paid for and does not mean anything. Five star reviews also proven paid for. Not classified as an Esport but rather a fraud who’s main objective is for you to purchase. Fact is that most profits go to the Chinese Communist Party. Tencent who is the owner of Supercell hand over western money to a torturous regime. So, parents should absolutely not allow children to play or purchase.
The game is awesome and I love getting to play the creation maps, although when I play the game it just randomly lags and when it lags it lags A LOT! But not all the time in fact now it barely ever legs but when it did I always got killed. The second reason is i keep getting the first character under the trophy Road characters, and I am only getting a super rare’s right now and I barely get any brawlers in the brawl boxes that are even really good and I’ve gone nuts.
Like I have no legendary‘s or mythic’s or chromatics. Otherwise It’s fine
I think this game is awesome I’m super addicted to it So far it has no problems. The characters are amazing so please do some more updates on this masterpiece because it definitely needs them, I have been using the same character over and over so add some updates it doesn’t have loads of ads and you can get loads of gems in no time gems give you chests and chests give you new characters ok I think that’s all please read this. You very faithful servant/fan hyperwolf (that’s my gamer name)
