  • Street Brawl Game Mode
  • New Game Map
  • 1v1, 8 minutes
  • 3 stocks each
  • First to 3 KOs wins!

After many rounds of testing, Easy Anti-Cheat (EAC) will now be enabled on Steam and enforced in ranked and tournament lobbies. Players who do not want to use EAC can still disable it with the ‘-noeac’ launch parameter and can play custom matches or non-ranked game modes.

EAC is now confirmed to have no negative effect on performance as it once did in the past. Additionally, map backgrounds will still be modifiable without triggering EAC, and modifying map backgrounds will still be tournament legal.

This update also includes a new Test Feature where a player automatically performs an Aerial Heavy attack if they are out of Jumps, a new Test Feature to help better communicate when players are out of Jumps, and an update to the Dodge Cooldown Test Feature.

New Out of Jump Recovery Feature
Introducing a new feature where a player automatically performs an Aerial Heavy attack, also known as the Recovery attack, if they are out of Jumps and try to Jump! If a player still has a Recovery available when they try to Jump but are out of Jumps, the player will do a Recovery attack instead.

  • This feature is enabled by default, though it is only active when Test Features are “ON” in Custom Game lobbies or when playing in the Experimental queue.
  • Players can turn it off in their Control Settings, and that setting will be saved in the event the feature graduates from Test Features into all queues.

New Test Feature

This new feature removes the slight tint when a player is out of Jumps. This information is better communicated through the graduated Out of Recovery visual effect that includes the “sweat beads” appearing on the player. 

Updated Dodge Cooldown

The previous iteration of Experimental Dodge Cooldown proved to be an overly long duration for general gameplay, and took too much power away from being grounded and having stage control. This new iteration brings down the maximum Air Dodge Cooldown slightly more, from the previous Experimental value of 2.16 seconds to a flat 2 seconds. This Air Dodge cooldown does not get reduced when landing. Dodging from the ground previously shared that 2.16 second cooldown in Experimental, but now has a flat 1 second cooldown that is identical to non-Experimental Dodges that begin on the ground. Any Chase Dodge causes a 1 second dodge cooldown, even if it is performed in the air. This grants the ability to Chase Dodge much more often and off of most any hit, while still retaining a quick Dodge cooldown that can be used to outplay your opponent. Striking an opponent will carry a similar advantage in Dodge Cooldown as maintaining ground or stage control.

  • Ground Dodge and Chase Dodges now have a 1 second cooldown.
  • Air Dodges have a 2 second cooldown, and this cooldown does not change when landing.
  • Performing a Chase Dodge after hitting another Legend grants you the same 1 second cooldown as a grounded dodge even if the Chase Dodge is performed in the air.

While general balance is locked for the Midseason Championship, this patch brings Arcadia into the tournament scene with her first round of adjustments. These changes had been previously announced to provide this information early enough for those competing in the Midseason Championship on brawlhalla.com/balance-preview and through our official esports Twitter, @ProBrawlhalla.

Arcadia

Arcadia’s Neutral Spear now has significantly greater Recover time on miss, as it was too low risk for its overall coverage. We have also reduced the Force on this attack to bring its knockout potential in line with other similar Signatures. Arcadia’s Side Spear has also received a decrease in Force to better fit its travel distance and how far it carries a target before knocking them away.

  • Arcadia Neutral Spear: Increased total Recover time on miss from 20 to 26; Decreased Force from 55 Fixed/50 Variable to 55 Fixed/48 Variable.
  • Arcadia Side Spear: Decreased Force from 50 Fixed/50 Variable to 50 Fixed/47 Variable.
