Jaw Breakers Live Video

https://youtu.be/guqDJnGkmnM
Hype matches, top players from all around Europe and a great setting made the first live Lethal League tournament an event to remember! We had our boy Gijs from Mortier Media make a video to give you a taste of how the event went down. Check out the footage of Jaw Breakers Live!

The music in the video is by Rahzan. The tracks ‘Astronomic’ and ‘Hey’ were a great fit for the vibe we had going. Check out his latest album ‘Home’, released just last month, here. If you’d like to support him, you can (in true underground fashion) give him a mail and ask to buy a copy!

Jaw Breakers Live was won by aTastyT0ast from Germany. As a high placed EU player in the previous Jaw Breakers online tournament all eyes were on him and he has proven to be a worthy champion. On top of the prize money and Lethal League goodies, he will be awarded a special ingame icon to show off with! We hope aTastyT0ast will be there next time to defend his spot and all the others (and more) to challenge him!

The top 5 results:
1) aTastyT0ast (Germany)
2) Ice Coldas (Netherlands)
3) Glioburd (France)
4) YinYin (Germany)
5) Tenasow (Denmark) and Creme Brulee (Netherlands)

To wrap this post up we also got some new merch from EightySixed! Check out this brand new Lethal League tee. Now buy this or the critical error WILL be you!

Lethal League is a what you get when you cross a fighting game with dodgeball in all the best ways. Players jockey to control a small ball, hitting it around the screen in an attempt to knock out eachother. Every hit on the ball speeds it up, and it quickly moves from an easy to predict slow moving projectile to a streak that bounces around the screen, ricocheting off ceiling, walls, and floor to take out players.

This simple set up leads to an exciting and incredibly fun game. Unlike most fighting games, there are no long lists of special moves to learn and memorize (each character has slightly differnt angles they will hit the ball at, and a special move that can be powered up during play and used, but no difficult button combos are required for any moves). This makes the game very intuitive and easy for players to jump in and start playing, even if you are not into fighters. However, the interplay between player and their specials does lead to a suprising amount of depth in the combat, and learning the timing to intercept balls as they come off of other players at higher speeds will take practice.

If I had any criticisms for the game, it would be that the simplicity of it can be a double edged sword. Games can start feeling repetative during long play sessions. Game options can extend this a bit, but in the end most feel gimicky and I find myself losing interest after 30-60 minutes. However, that being said, I still find myself coming back to this game to get in a few quick rounds against friends when we don't have time for a long playsession, or to finish out a night of gaming. And that is where the game shines imho, quick bursts of action and excitement when I don't have the time to spend hours playing.

This games perfectly fills a niche in my gaming library. It is well worth the price (and worth getting a few extra copies for your friends as well). An unreserved thumbs up from me.

Introduction
Have you ever wondered what it would be like for superheroes (or beings with superpowers) to play various sports? Perhaps dodgeball? Or baseball? No doubt they would take things to a new extreme, with smashes that break the laws of physics and reaction speeds at mere fractions of milliseconds.

Lethal League is a little like that. Imagine Super Smash Brothers but on PC and instead of fighting, you're essentially playing dodgeball in a fairly small arena. Things can get real chaotic, but boy is it fun!

Gameplay
Lethal League combines sport, with a highly competitive and slightly strategic game that requires you to have good timing, or a good understanding of angles. This does not mean it's a math or physics game. It simply means Lethal League has an extremely high skill ceiling whilst having a very low barrier to entry. Anyone can pick this up with their friends or play vs bots and have a really great time, and those with the best reaction times can duke it out for the top spots.

Your goal is to eliminate all your opponents, by hitting the ball into them. The standard game mode allows you to tag the ball which puts it in your colour and makes it pass through you (so that you don't hit yourself). You can also disable ball tagging for a much more challenging experience. Each time you hit the ball, it goes a little faster. You can hit it up or down depending on whether you are in the air or on the ground. If you smash a ball (air hit) the ball speed is doubled. Now this is where the real fun comes in. If you manage to get 3 or more smashes in, the ball speed is going to ramp up so fast that it quickly becomes a blur of lines in various angles. This is where a knowledge of angles can help you to overcome your opponent.

The maximum speed seems to be capped at 1 million. As you break through known speed limits, your hits gradually have a longer delay but the ball speed is so fast that it becomes ALMOST impossible to react to it. You're likely going to struggle with this until you learn the timing windows for various hits, and it is oh so satisfying to counter a ball ping-ponging across the room at over 100,000 (whatever the speed measurement is) into your opponent.

You can also bunt the ball in various directions, temporarily slowing it down and allowing you to regain control and possibly change its direction. This is used in combination with regular hits to quickly rack up speed or pull off an unexpectedly fast smash, because bunting a ball reduces the delay on a hit (even the insanely fast ones that require 2-4 seconds of delay) to almost nothing.

Characters
There are 6 characters to choose from and each of them have distinct strengths and weaknesses. Some of them can jump higher than others, some can jump off walls indefinitely etc. This alone would make it fun, however the devs decided this is not enough so they added special abilities. Where do I even begin? Special abilities can drastically change the course of a match in an instant! By hitting the ball you gain charges of your special meter. At 4 charges you can use the ability by double tapping the regular hitting button. Each character has their own unique move that you'll discover on your own, and it adds so much more fun to the game along with previously mentioned elements.

Visuals
The visual style of this game is unique, but still quite simple. Characters have some lovely color variations and stages are fairly well designed.

Audio
I absolutely love the music in this game, as well as the other assorted sounds in the game. When you break the sound barrier, the hit sounds are so impactful and sound like rockets or small bombs going off.

Other Thoughts
Running at 60 FPS is pretty much required to be able to learn your timings properly. The first time I ran the game, it had some very weird frame drops that may have been an issue on my side, but it initially turned me off from the game. However subsequent play sessions did not have that issue, so it must have been some other unrelated issue. The game is very lightweight and runs flawlessly.

I would have liked to see more characters in the game, as 6 is hardly a roster of characters compared to other games in this kind of genre. I mean not even the Scout from TF2? That's an iconic character that would have been perfect here.

Summary
Lethal League is the type of game you can pick up at any time and play with friends. Even as a solo player, you'll find that the bots are quite challenging, and there's enough single player content to keep you interested for even a couple days. The gamplay is fun and rewarding, and is definitely worth checking out if you're interested in a fun, fast, sport-action game.

8/10 - The game that destroys friendships

Next to Rocket League, this is currently our top title for gaming nights.
Only buy if your walls are more or less soundproof and your neighbors are not very sensitive.
There will be constant shouting and laughing.
A must have, no need to wait for a sale here, absolutely worth the full price.

This game is so fun. It can go from 0-10,000 real quick and its fun as hell. Especially if you're playing with friends over skype or irl and you've made the ball go so fast that the screen is shaking and you can't even see it anymore but you both gain god hands and are able to keep slamming it at each other going faster and faSTER UNTIL IT IS JUST SO FAST THAT YOU BOTH TRANSEND TIME AND SPACE BECOMING ONE AND YET ALSO TWO, CREATING NEW UNIVERES WITH EVERY SUCCESFULL HIT UNTIL THE BALL DISSAPEARS AND IT IS JUST THE TWO OF YOU SURROUNDED BY THE BLUR THAT USED TO BE THE BALL BUT YOU CAN'T STOP SLAMMING THE BALL THAT WAS ONCE THERE BUT IS NOW- a good game, buy it.

I've been playing this game for a decent amount of time now, and I have almost nothing but positive things to say about it.

- It's a very fast paced game with a rather high skill cap to achieve.
- Easy(ish) to learn, and all around fun to play for hours on end.
- A somewhat small yet very friendly community towards all players.
- Community held tournies keep the playerbase intact and alive.
- The game can be played with either keyboard or controller with only slight advantages using the controller.
- The game is brutal with it's matchmaking and really lets you know what you're in for when you face opponents with over 1k+ hours. (It's okay to suck, you'll just suck less next time!)
- The game runs smoothly consistently; ie: no sudden frame drops, no visual tearing, etc.

One of the only bad things I've found about this game so far is how long it can take to get a matchmaking game sometimes, but the gameplay definitely overwhelms that con so it all works out in the end.

I give this game an honest 10/10, it's really a great game but sadly doesn't have as much of a player following as I wish it did.

A very underrated little gem on Steam. The characters are diverse and are all mechanically unique in someway, but I find they are all equally fun to play as. Surprisingly a lot of depth and skill is needed to master the seemingly simple gameplay here as well. Online works pretty well too but a decent ping will be needed, but nonetheless very fun with friends.

I found this really interesting game on YouTube, and it looked appealing. So I waited for a good sale, bought it, and just had a blast. When I first saw this game, I thought it was your average fighting game that you could land all the sweet combos with friends. But Lethal League is so much more than just a fighting game. With the only way to blast fighters out of the arena using a ball that is consitantly gaining speed, bouncing, flying, and who knows what in any direction, this game adds an intense factor in trying to stay alive.

I remember when I had three friends over and we all had out own wired controllers, so I suggested we played Lethal League. I had already been playing a lot of it, and they had never played in their life. Now, when I thought playing alone was fun, I never accounted having friends to play with. But when more people joined the game, it becomes hilariously joyous, with a lot of tense moments of only two people left and the ball being at over 1000 speed, some people figuring out new attacks, or people getting that three-hit wipeout, mostly on accident.

All in all, Lethal League is a sweat-inducing and creative game, bringing a fresh idea to the fighting game genre, and one that works incredibly well. The multiplayer works great, hit detection is fine, the characters are interesting, and the gameplay is just plain awesome.

You're an up and coming manager for a professional baseball team and this is basically your story. Every choice you make in this game counts an example being when you are left with the decision to cut one of your star players after he gets an extremely bad injury. While the story itself is great, I believe the development of the characters is what really sets this game high on my list. Seeing the rookie develope throughout the seasons (and if you continue to season 8 you'll see an emotional scene. Trust me this scene was definitely moving especially if you are able to hang on to him and convince him to stay on your team) was especially nice, as he was one of the characters that somewhat grew on you.
Before I spoil the game even more, go out and buy this. Trust me you won't regret it.
