Brawlhalla Esports Year Nine has arrived! With big changes that include a new circuit system and new region support, there’s a lot to look forward to.
Winter & Summer Circuits
For North America, South America, and Europe, the singles game mode in Year Nine consists of two seasonal circuits. Each circuit has 4 open online competitions for competitors. After the completion of all four circuit events, the top four players who performed the best will qualify into a seasonal Royale. These 12 competitors, 4 from North America, 4 from Europe and 4 from South America, will be invited to compete at the in-person Seasonal Royale.
While each Circuit will have four official events, qualification into the Royale is contingent on only the best 3 placements from the Circuit. Effectively this means that a competitor would only need to compete and perform well in 3 of the 4 events to qualify.
Each Circuit event is a standalone open tournament and as such, anyone within the qualifying regions is welcome and encouraged to participate regardless of the status of the circuit.
Additionally, MooseWars for North America, Estacao for South America, and Brawl League for Europe, all members from the Tier 1 Brawlhalla Community Tournament, will be joining to host two of these circuit events each season. These are official Power Ranked events.
The very first circuit event will be the weekend of February 16th. Registration is open now.
For the Doubles game mode, Year Nine continues with 4 online doubles championships. These are regular Power Ranked open events. Registration for the Winter Doubles Championship is open now.
Year Nine will continue official support for South East Asia. Additionally Year Nine will introduce the first ever official Brawlhalla Esports support for the Middle East and North Africa server regions. As this is a new addition to Brawlhalla Esports, MENA players will be permitted to continue competing in European Circuit tournaments as they have previously.
The MENA specific events however are only eligible for the following countries: Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Oman, UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Syria, Cyprus, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Eritrea, South Sudan, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajik.
Brawlhalla will have two official major LANs in 2024. The first, Midseason Championship, will be taking place at CEO 2024 in Daytona Florida. Registration & the Hotel block are open now.
The Midseason Championship will have a singles and doubles bracket. As with all Brawlhalla LANs, the event is open to all. Competitors must bring their own controller (BYOC).
Brawlhalla will be returning to the Cobb Galleria Center for BCX 2024. As a true celebration of the community and the competition, attendees can look forward to a whole slate of new content, epic moments, and so much more. Additional information including dates, hotels, and registration will be made available later this year.
