Gameplay[edit]

In Brawl Stars, players known as brawlers are ranked by their level and total trophies. Players collect brawlers and select one to use each game. Brawlers come in six rarity types: League Rewards, Rare, Super Rare, Epic, Mythic and Legendary. There are currently 24 brawlers in the game, including eight League Reward Brawlers, three Rare Brawlers, four Super Rare Brawlers, three Epic Brawlers, three Mythic Brawlers and three Legendary Brawlers. Players get brawlers from Brawl Boxes, (with the exception of League Reward Brawlers, which are acquired via gaining trophies), which can be acquired from tokens or gems. Big Boxes can be acquired using gems or 10 Star tokens (earned by winning the first match in a map). Players can join clubs to play alongside other players. Brawl Stars provides seven non-ticketed events (Bounty, Brawl Ball, Gem Grab, Heist, Solo Showdown, Duo Showdown, Siege) and three ticketed events (Robo Rumble, Boss Fight, Big Game), totaling to 10 unique game modes.[10] With the recent addition of event modifiers, which introduce special mechanics to each of the non-ticketed events, players will find over 20 distinct ways to play the game.[11]

Esports[edit]

In 2019 Red Bull hosted a Brawl Stars tournament that required each team to have a YouTube content creator. The finals were held on February 2, 2019.[12]
