Brawl Stars Starr Force balance changes now live

A new update for Brawl Stars has gone live, swooping in with a fresh list of midseason balance changes and other game fixes. You will need to download and install this latest balance patch to access the popular three-versus-three mobile hit, developer Supercell having tweaked a number of brawlers since rolling out their last major season update while also stamping out some bugs. Specifically, there are five playable characters who have been adjusted to help balance the Brawl Stars meta including Bo, Edgar, Jessie, Bea, and Byron. Supercell have also been working on Sprout’s super, which can you read more about in the patch notes below.

Brawl Stars has just kicked off season 5 – dubbed The Starr Force – which includes a bevy of new content. Up top, we have a new Brawler: the eyepatch-wearing space commander, Colonel Ruffs. Yes, Ruffs. He’s a dog. Season 5 is also stuffed with sci fi themed goodies including a number of new skins as well as a Starr Force Brawl Pass loaded with items that unlock as you play Brawl Stars. Here’s a comprehensive rundown of everything added in this new season – in the meantime, the latest Brawler balance notes and bug fixes:

– Super Totem’s effect gets weaker the more it charges a player’s super
