How to Improve in Brawlhalla?

How to actually get better at Brawlhalla. No memes, no messing around, just solid advice.

Pre-Match

The first thing you want to do when you start up Brawlhalla for the first time is go into training mode. Choose a character you like the look of, and get learning. Looking up combo guides won’t hurt, but don’t forget to work out some yourself. Even when you feel confident at the game, Training before Ranked, every time. Here’s some do’s and don’t for the first part of the game.

DO:

  • Practice, You won’t get anywhere by believing in the power of your dreams.
  • Stick with a character. Swapping constantly won’t help your game.
  • Learn your inputs. Inputting a light attack where you mean to heavy isn’t the end of the world. A heavy attack where you meant to light will screw you over.
  • Learn basic combos. Everyone should learn unarmed downlight to jumping nair. Practice this until you can pull it off with your eyes closed.

DON’T:

  • Go straight into ranked. You’ll lose all hope.
  • Expect to be good at this because you play Melee/RoA/Whatever. It’s a different game.
  • League players aren’t at home in DOTA or HotS, fighters are no different.
  • Get disheartened. No-one’s amazing to start with. Even top-level diamond players started off as a lowly bronze scrub.

With Friends

A group of friends is the best place to practice Brawlhalla when you want to learn movement patterns. Ask on the subreddit or the forums here for a sparring partner if you have no friends.

DO:

  • Test out dumb stuff. Some things you won’t expect will work on some people, so always use them as a possibility.
  • Mix up your game. Don’t use the same combo over and over again.

DON’T

  • Get salty. These are your friends, not your rivals.
  • Be afraid of sucking. If they’re the same level, they probably suck too. You can suck together

Ranked

Ranked is the big beast here, and probably the most used in the game. You need to be good here. You’re not going to get far just spamming. Well, not past gold, anyway. The only thing you need to do here is put into use all the things you’ve practiced. Combos, setups, and reads are all important. As is saying gg at the end of a match no matter what. Lost? Say gg. Won? Say gg. Did opponent spam their off? Say gg. It’s polite, you just do it no matter how salty you are.

The main bit of advice for ranked, however, is to learn from every loss. If you’re new, or even if you’re old, your train of thought when you lose is most likely:

Damn, I lost. Well, better luck next time.

What it should be is : Damn, I lost. What part of the strategy beat me though?

If you think like this, you’ll learn from every mistake. If you’re against a spammy player, you’ll have noticed a long cooldown, or being able to jump above the sig (a common theme). Use this next game, and jump above sigs. If you see a tendency for people to dodge behind you when you’re charging, act on that and sig the other way.

  1. Please help me! I don’t understand why everyone is beating me back to back. I’ve fallen over 300 elo in the past 3 days and now I can’t get too far past mid gold with 600 wins.
    Im begging you to help!

    1. The first piece of advice I could offer would be to NOT DESPAIR. Next, I’d say, look at what makes you lose every time. Some common reasons could be –
      1. Tilting – You might tilt without even realizing. In your situation, a tilt would mean matches fueled by a desperation to win, making you do anything without thinking. I’d say you should play in short bursts. Play for 45 minutes, and then take a 15 minute, or as long as it takes you to say, “Okay, now back to the grind.”
      2. A wrong legend – It happened with me, too, when I started. I started without Vector, and after a few good matches, came rampant losses, without me realizing that Vector is not like me. That was when I chose Zariel, and he ft my playstyle way better. Try out other legends.
      3. Wrong strategy for common scenarios – Look at your replays, and try to figure out a pattern. A certain legend or weapon or a move that makes you lose ? Go into Training and play against it till you can counter it every single time. Figure out what went wrong every time you lose.
      4. Spamming – You might be spamming, or you might be losing to spammers. Either way, it makes one angry. A common way to hit at spammers would be to throw your weapon to reset them, dash and get back your weapon, and then punish. This works especially well with bows. Or if you are a spammer, give it up ASAP. As it says in the article, in your ranked league, it won’t work most of the times.

      Summarily, look at a change in your main, or, if you’re fine with a particular legend, change your playstyle. Look at your replays, and learn from them. Practice with people whose playstyle matches with those to whom you lose. If you lose to Scythes, spar with a Scythe main.

      Hope this helps!

  2. I have been able to get to mid-plat but then drop down to low gold and then get stuck there, any idea of how could change that?

  3. I feel like i have not been improving at all in the game, especially during these last few months, i have been maining fait for 8 months now and i did learn some advanced orb techniques and extended strings + a few scythe reads and learned some advanced movement like dash jump fast fall though i rarely hit it correctly, however that wasn’t enough to make me feel any improvement or even see it in the form of extra elo, especially being at low gold and all, and i feel like a huge part of that has been playing against lance nd axe because scythe and orb are a bit mote focused on close-quarters combat so they can’t exactly counter them well, any tips on how i can improve myself and feel like i can actually achieve something notable in the game? Sorry for the super long comment
