So usually I don’t cover mobile games but this new game Brawl Stars has been blowing up. It is made my Super cell the same company who made two other extremely popular mobile games including Clash of Clans and Clash Royal. Brawl Stars Super cell’s latest game is a top down shooter where you can unlock different heroes and play in a variety of game modes such as a battle royale and a 3v3 where players fight for gems that spawn in the middle of the map. By playing these game modes
Now for why I dislike Brawl Stars. The most irritating thing is the trophy system, The entire system is based off of how much time you put into the game instead of how good you are at the game. Which I think is kind of dumb if they are to add such a rating. Earning trophies is extremely tedious as well where each game seems to only reward you up to 6 and losses take around 2. Now there seems to be extra trophies awarded for being MVP which allows you to get up too 6 trophies on the winning side and lose 0 on the losing side either way. This slow progress is even more punishing and tedious because many heroes and game modes are unplayable till you hit a certain trophy count. So you have to play the same boring game modes until you eventually unlock another one. I think you should have access to all of them once you start playing the game. If they made it so there was a casual and competitive playlist that would be much better, that way the casual one could be based of time spent in the playlist because losing would not make you lose trophies and you would have all game modes unlocked. While in the competitive playlist which would have it’s own trophies along with it would reward you based on the current trophy system. I understand why certain heroes and other rewards can be locked behind trophy count because it makes the player want to grind and it makes the game feel more rewarding but I don’t think this should also be applied to game modes. Now one of the things that I was afraid of immediately once learning the base of the game is that it might be a pay to win type game where one can use real money to buy heroes that are just unreasonably more powerful than others, and though that is does apply a little bit it isn’t as much as I though most characters seems well balanced and each one even the beginner characters can be played against the rarer characters.
