Discover the Brawl: a New Game Mode Rises

Spicy! That’s the exact word that comes to mind when talking about the Brawl. See for yourself: The all-new game mode allows for a ton of various tweaks and shenanigans to make the gameplay as varied and unusual as it gets. You’ll have a chance to find out how it feels in-game very soon! Don’t hesitate to send us feedback and even the most crazy ideas regarding possible Brawl scenarios—just reach out to us via our Discord or any other available means.

The Brawl is coming in limited-time seasons, just like Arena and Ranked battles. One thing to keep in mind—this time, it’s 3 vs. 3 with full Divisions allowed, but matchmaking only pairs Divisions against other Divisions. It’s time to show off your teamplay skills!

Let’s proceed to the exact season details. And of course, the ship picks for the inaugural Brawl seasons are brought to you by the professional himself—TheSailingRobin—as usual. 

Season 1: Cruise Control

As you probably could have guessed, this season is all about cruisers. Speed and damage output have both been increased!

August 4–8 (7:00 UTC/2:00 CDT start and finish)

Ship tier: V

Ship types: Cruisers only 

Team size: 3

Additional tweaks:

Consumable reload 70% quicker

Main battery gun reload 30% quicker

Ships move 80% faster

Main battery turrets turn 100% quicker

Damage dealt by cruisers increased by 50%

8-minute battle timer 

Divisions of up to three players are allowed; Divisions play only against Divisions

Maps: Big Race, Fault Line, New Dawn, Sea of Fortune, Strait

TheSailingRobin picks:

Cruiser Brawls are always fun and intense due to the high-octane nature of the type. For this season, you’re going to want sufficient DPM (damage per minute) to overwhelm your opponents, and I think we’ve found the two candidates for that:

Nürnberg is a tried-and-tested classic in our game for her rapid-firing guns and torpedo armament.

Duca d’Aosta for her ability to zoom around the map at great speeds while slinging some serious SAP damage.

Season 2: Big Boats

Battleships are in the middle of the inaugural Brawl seasons, and they are faster and deadlier than ever!

August 11–15 (7:00 UTC/2:00 CDT start and finish)

Ship tier: VI

Ship types: Battleships only 

Team size: 3

Additional tweaks:

Consumable reload 70% quicker

Ships move 80% faster

8-minute battle timer

Divisions of up to three players are allowed; Divisions play only against Divisions

Maps: Big Race, Fault Line, New Dawn, Sea of Fortune, Strait

TheSailingRobin picks:

3 vs. 3 battleships. What’s your approach? An aggressive build focused on early strikes and close-quarters combat, or a medium-range survivability setup to simply wear out your opponents before they get a chance to deplete your HP? For this season, we’re going with:

Gneisenau, a speedy battleship with some mean guns and as the cherry on top—torpedoes for close-quarters occasions.

Strasbourg—while neither boasting the best armor nor the largest guns, her ability to boost her main battery gun reload will definitely help in most situations.

August 18–22 (7:00 UTC/2:00 CDT start and finish)

Maps: Big Race, Fault Line, New Dawn, Sea of Fortune, Strait

TheSailingRobin picks:

For this torpedo rampage, you’re going to want both extensive offensive capabilities and enough HP to take at least one hit.

We recommend picking:

T-22 for her competitive torpedo reload time, solid torpedo damage that exceeds the HP pools of most of her peers, and reasonable HP pool of her own.

Okhotnik for her ability to completely saturate an area with rapid-reloading, short-range torps.
