The Brawlhalla Circuit Overview

The Brawlhalla Circuit is the official tournament series for Brawlhalla players who want to compete with the best in the world. BC tournaments net you points, prizes, travel, and the chance to secure a spot at the invitational Brawlhalla World Championship in November.

All Brawlhalla Circuit tournaments have an open-entry stage, and consist of online and offline tournaments brought to you by the worldwide Brawlhalla Community and the developers at Blue Mammoth Games.

 

Goals of the Brawlhalla Circuit

The Goal of the Brawlhalla Circuit is to ensure that the absolute best players from across the world are competing at the Brawlhalla World Championship.  

With that goal in mind, we wanted to ensure that Brawlhalla Circuit events were available to players all over the world. Last year’s esports plan was heavily focused on US and EU players as those regions were more developed and had larger player bases during the earlier phases of beta. Our aim with the Brawlhalla Circuit is to encourage tournament growth in other regions, and recognize the talents of top Brawlhalla players worldwide.

To achieve this, we have a developed a Brawlhalla Circuit Point System to track the progress of players throughout any Brawlhalla Circuit tournament they participate in.

Brawlhalla Circuit Point System

The Brawlhalla Circuit point system applies to every event in the Brawlhalla Circuit. Circuit Points (or CP) will always be distributed to top 32 participants in an event.  

The point distribution breakdown for official Brawlhalla Circuit events are as follows

A AA AAA S SS
1st 20 40 80 200 350
2nd 10 20 40 120 200
3rd 6 12 24 80 120
4th 4 8 16 40 80
5th-6th 4 8 16 30 50
7th-8th 4 8 16 20 40
9th-16th 2 4 8 12 24
17th-32nd 1 2 4 8 16
Total 88 176 352 764 1378
