NEW AND IMPROVED FEATURES
Developer Note: This has been difficult to implement over time, but we are happy to offer you a fully functional Brawl Pass with Deep Space Dispatches with background information about the DJ and Z3R0. We are very excited to share this with all of you.
Crew horns, new player voices and crew motorcycles
Developer Note: It feels strange just listing these features as bullet points as there is so much in each of them, from creation to implementation. My favorite is to pair the Z3R0 voice with the [REDACTED] Motorcycle. Let us know what you think!
The Brawl Shop now has even more new items for sale. Where players once saw empty store slots in daily items, they will now see XP boosts, energy drinks and style chips. Spend this hard earned holobux out. The Brawl Shop will also no longer attempt to sell items that players have already bought in bundles.
Developer Note: Z3R0 must have hacked the bundle shop records and made them available to the daily items. Regularly change your passwords, thugs.
We want our Diamond Brawlers to have the experience of climbing the leaderboards and not get confused by why their Skill Rating is increasing or decreasing. An improved skill rating system for ranking on the leaderboard makes this more predictable based on wins and losses; Profits always cause the skill value to increase, and losses always cause the skill value to decrease. The highest skill rating is now 5000. You can read more about it here.
Developer Note: With Season 2 we introduced Leaderboards, a highly requested feature from our top players who wanted to see how they compare to other top players. Once players reached the top tier, Diamond, we used their skill rating to place them within that tier. But we got a lot of feedback on how the skill rating was calculated and changed after the games. Now the skill rating will get higher and higher when you win and decrease when you lose, depending on how well the game was tuned for each team. We’ll be watching Season 3 progress and tweak some stats behind the scenes, so please keep giving us your feedback.
Improved visibility of the danger zone in face-off mode by making it higher.
Players can now sort voices in Customize Brawler.
