Season 25 – Rewards and Soft Elo reset! 

If you’re new to Seasons, here’s some information you should know. At the beginning of every new season you’ll have a soft Elo reset and receive Glory, the currency you earn by playing Ranked. You can use it in the Ranked section of Malhalla to get special Colors, Weapon Skins, Emotes, and Nameplates to show your dedication to your favorite Legend. We hope you enjoy your rewards and enjoy the New Season! 

Soft Elo Reset Formula 

Soft Elo Reset is based on your current Elo at the end of the season. 

1v1 and 2v2 Personal Rating 

  • Under 1400: New Elo = Old Elo 
  • Over 1400: New Elo = 1400 + (Old Elo – 1400) / (3 – (3000 – Old Elo) / 800) 
  • 2v2 Team and Legend Rating 

2v2 Team & Legend Ratings  have been brought closer to 750.

  • Under 2000: Elo = (Elo + 375) / 1.5 
  • Over 2000, we aggressively brought you back down as a way of resetting the top tiers. Diamond level players will be reset to high gold or low platinum. 

Glory Earnings Calculation 

Glory earned is based on a combination of your Highest Peak Rating (highest 1v1, 2v2, team, or Legend rating/Elo) and total Wins. This was designed in order to reward both skill and dedication for those who pursue Glory. 

You gain 20 Glory per win up to 150 wins, which gets you 3000 Glory. After 150 wins, each subsequent win gives you slightly less. 

Note: There is a minimum requirement of 10 games played to be eligible for Glory based on your rating. For help estimating your Glory Gained or New Elo after the reset go to: https://cms.brawlhalla.com/glory-calculator/ 

Ranked Borders from Season 24

If you placed Gold, Platinum, or Diamond in your best rating, you are given a ranked border that people will see in the match preview screen. These will last for one season and will be updated again after the new season comes to a close. 

Your border from any previous season does not carry over or have any impact on your current border reward. 

Ranked Avatars from Season 24

Ranked Avatars include prestigious versions for those who’ve placed in high ranks during previous seasons. For example, if you placed in Platinum last season and Gold this season, you’ll receive the upgraded versions of the Competitor’s Badge and Gold Emblem. You will still have your original Platinum Emblem avatar from previous seasons. 

You must play a minimum of 10 games to receive ranked avatars / borders at ANY rank.

  • Competitor’s Badge: Awarded to anyone who plays 10 Ranked Games or more. 
  • Gold Emblem: Awarded to players who finish at Gold or above. 
  • Platinum Emblem: Awarded to players who finish at Platinum or above. 
  • Diamond Emblem: Awarded to players who finish at Diamond. 
  • Upgraded versions of Ranked Avatars are awarded to those who have earned the same Avatar in any previous season. 
  • 5th & 6th Tier Ranked Avatar Upgrade Information 

For players who have reached the 5th Tier of an avatar by reaching a certain rank or higher for five total seasons: the 5th Tier of that avatar will stay in your inventory permanently! Congratulations on your achievements! 

The 6th Tier Avatar, for those who have reached a certain rank or higher for six total seasons, will take on a brand new look! These avatars will grow more and more prestigious with each subsequent seasonal repeat up to Tier 10, at which point the Tier 10 avatar will remain in your inventory permanently. 

In short, every 5 Tiers of avatars, you’ll keep the most awesome, most decked out version permanently, and then start work on a new version for subsequent tiers for 6-10, 11-15, and so on. 

Exclusive Ranked Rewards – Skyforged & Goldforged! 

Beyond glory there is immortality! In Mallhalla, in the “Ranked” tab, players may spend their hard-earned Glory to purchase Skyforged Colors, Weapons, Nameplates, Emotes, and Sidekicks. Skyforged Colors are only usable on Legends that have reached level 5 or greater. 

Players can also purchase Goldforged items, which require the purchase of the Skyforged version of the same item. Show your strength with these exclusive Ranked items!

New Ranked Game Mode – 3v3 Stock

Introducing 3v3 Stock available in the Seasonal Ranked Queue! 

Form a tactical trio with two other players and jump into an epic 3v3 Stock battle. Battle an equally combat-ready team, and knock out all 9 of their Stocks first to win!

Players can continue to earn Glory mid-season and earn exclusive Title Rewards. With every new season, the Seasonal Ranked Queue’s Elo will do a full reset.
