The Experimental Queue’s map set has been updated as a preview of the new Tournament map set that will go live after the Mid-Season Championship. This proposed map set is also available in Custom Lobbies for Stock game modes, labeled as TournamentEXP in the Game Rules settings. We are aiming for a single map set for 1v1 and 2v2 tournaments, so be sure to give both modes a try in Custom Lobbies.

  • The Experimental Queue Map Set has been changed to “TournamentEXP.”
  • New Experimental Tournament Maps:
    • Small Brawlhaven, Small Enigma, Spirit Realm, Miami Dome, Apocalypse, Small Fortress of Lions, and Demon Island.
  • Players can also try out this new Experimental Map set in Stock game modes in Custom Lobbies.

The reduced input window for Directional Gravity Cancels from 5 ticks to 3 ticks has been graduated into all queues! Players found that this new value resulted in far fewer unintentional Gravity Cancels while recovering back to stage.

  • The window for initiating a Gravity Cancel from a directional dodge is now 3 frames.
  • This graduated feature will help players reduce unintended instances of Directional Gravity Cancels, while helping new players learn the timing of performing a Gravity Cancel.
  • Thank you so much for your feedback!

We’ve added condensed Weapon Spawn locations, adjusted Dodge Cooldowns, and reduced Wall Slip to Test Features. These can be played in the Experimental queue and any Custom Game with Test Features turned on. Share your feedback on our Twitter and Discord. For more information, visit brawlhalla.com/test-features.

Weapon Spawns

We have condensed the locations of weapon spawns on maps in the Experimental Queue, bringing them lower to the ground and closer to center stage. This is intended to make stage control more valuable during a game, with fewer weapon spawns being in reach near walls or far above stage.

  • Condensed item spawns to be closer to the center of the map and platforms.

Effects the following maps:

  • Miami Dome, Small Brawlhaven, Twilight Grove, Small Kings Pass, Small Thundergard Stadium, Small Blackguard Keep, Small Enigma, Small Mammoth Fortress, Small Great Hall, Shipwreck Falls, Small Fangwild, Plains of Passage, Apocalypse, Small Galvan Prime, Demon Island, Crystal Temple, Spirit Realm, and Small Turtles’ Lair.

Dodge Cooldown Adjustments

Many Signatures can use their significant animation time to stall off-stage for too long with a Gravity Cancel, so we are testing a feature that aims to level the playing field for most Signatures. 

  • When performing a Gravity Cancel, the dodge cooldown now begins after the attack has finished, rather than after the canceled dodge was expected to finish.
  • We have changed the way Chase Dodge Forgiveness works in the background to allow for future testing, but for now it should feel identical to the current iteration. Look forward to further updates in the next patch.

Reduced Wall Slip

To further increase the power of stage control, we are testing a stricter version of the Wall Slip mechanic. Wall Slip will now trigger when a maximum of 9 jumps and/or Recovery attacks are performed without hitting or being hit by another player, instead of the normal value of 15. This maximum value is constant and does not change based on the number of times Wall Slip warnings have been triggered.

  • Reducing available air actions (jumps and Recovery attacks) from 15 to 9 before Wall Slip triggers.

User Experience

  • Players can now select Skins in the Training mode in-game menu.

User Interface

  • The Scoreboard screen now shows when players have left the Lobby. A player’s Avatar, Name, Title Reward, and Clan will darken after they leave. In Custom Lobbies, it only darkens if they fully back out of the Lobby (not just exiting the Scoreboard screen).
  • Hugin Skins now display the Legend name as Hugin instead of Munin.

The free-to-play Legend rotation for this week includes: Val, Reno, Caspian, Scarlet, Mirage, Magyar, Lord Vraxx, Kaya, and Xull.

  • Val – An android assassin with terrifying strength and quicker-than-light cognition, Val is a force to be reckoned with when utilizing her Sword and Gauntlets.
  • Reno – Four arms, compound eyes, fearlessness, and an added dose of genius make this Chitnoid Gunslinger the greatest bounty hunter this side of the Pecosid asteroid belt. He’ll take on any job with his trusty Blasters, and loyal Orb companion.
  • Caspian – Led by his showmanship and thirst for danger, he has come to Valhalla armed with Katars and Gauntlets to put on a show!
