Brawl Stars Balance Changes September 12, 2017
Brawl Stars Changes
In lieu of the new game mode, the team is changing the event rotation to give you more Brawl Ball.
If you played a lot of Heist events, you already know that if you’re on defense, securing the mid-area is the goal. Because of this strategy, brawlers on offense is having a tough time breaking through this is why they are lowering the all safe HPs by 300. They are also removing the box around the safe in GG Coral to make it more “Good Game” for both offense and defense.

Guess what, Brawl Ball fans, they’re making it easier for you to score. They are making the Pinhole Punt’s (Brawl Ball map) space wider in front of the goal.
Character Balance Changes
Tara’s HP, reload time, and range gets a nerf.

Pam’s Super and reload time gets a buff.
They are making Pam a truly Epic Brawler with these buffs she’s getting this update. They made her radius bigger and can now heal 80 HP per second. Making it bigger means you and your buddies don’t need to clump together and look like a sitting duck to Dynamike’s super. She also has a faster reload time at 1.6s from 1.8s and her attack doesn’t spread that wide anymore. To top it all off, she can now charge her Healing Station in 20 hits from the previous 21 hits.
Bo’s mines, HP gets a nerf but his ATK gets a buff
From Epic to Super Rare, this newly demoted brawler is still struggling to get his mojo back. With the last update, they gave him a major buff by having his traps increased to 4. They are now bringing it down to 3 as they seem this was too much. They also removed its push back effect. Sadly, Bo’s HP is also down to 800 from 900 to make him more like a Super Rare brawler (I guess). As a Bo lover, this is tough to swallow but they’re giving him an ATK boost just to soften things. He now has 100 DMG from 80 DMG.

Colt’s HP and reload time gets a buff.
Because of Colt’s popularity issues in high trophy matches, they are giving him a buff. This common brawler will now have 700 HP from 600 and his ATK reload time is now down to 1.25s from 1.5s.

Ricochet’s HP and reload time gets a buff.
Ricochet’s story is the same as Colt’s. He will now sport a new HP at 700 from 600 and his reload time is now a whopping 1.0s from 1.25s. That is f-a-s-t.

Brock’s HP and Missile speed gets a buff.
Crow’s Super and Attack Range gets a nerf
If you’ve faced Crow and Piper, you’re already familiar with their super. It lets them fly and escape from harm (or they sometimes use it for offense). With Crow’s ability to fly away, it just makes him sort of untouchable. To make him more “grounded” the team is nerfing his Super by making it charge slower. Aside from that, his attack range is also decreased by 0.67 tiles.

Mortis’ Speed and Super Range gets a nerf.
Ranged Brawlers such as Colt, Ricochet, and Brock got a major buff with their HP this balance changes. Another 100 HP and they will tie with regular brawlers such as Shelly and Nita. Aside from that, it seems like the dev team is looking more in the usage of brawlers in high trophy matches. I’m guessing this is where the “Meta Brawlers” are created because to be honest, I’m now seeing a lot of Dynamikes in my trophy range even before this update.
