Conquest Deck Challenge
Conquest tournaments return with draft deck challenges! Each day you will receive 1 free entry into mini tournament that can be played at your leisure.

2v2

Brawl of Ages just got bigger and better with the addition of 2v2! Grab a friend or a Club member and find a game using 2v2 matchmaking. 2v2 has voice chat, awards Valor and Seals, and has its own ladder (each unique pair of players has their own rating, so introducing your newbie friends to the game won’t hurt your stats ^.^).

Leagues

This patch introduces Leagues, a fun way for you to compete in Brawl of Ages.

As you win matches and gain medals you will progress up through the ranks of your league’s divisions, until finally you are promoted and enter the next league. Once promoted you cannot fall back.

At the end of each 2 week season leagues are reset and your new starting position is determined by your rank in the previous season.

General Changes

The launcher (main window) can now be scaled via the Interface Options.

Conquest has been temporarily disabled as we are reworking it significantly.

Localization

Support for many languages has been added, however these are mostly automatically translated at this time and may be hilariously inaccurate. If you want to help us translate the game into your language please email Ben@brawlofages.com

Bug Fixes

Fix some crashes when transitioning from the launcher to the game.

0.3.1 Changes
  • Level progression has been significantly accelerated (500%!).
  • Overtime now lasts for 3 minutes before the game ends in a draw (was 2 minutes)
  • Lane towers now start with 75 ammo (was 60)
  • Mana regen is now 0.77 mana/second and 1.4 mana/second during mana mania (was 0.81 and 1.62)

0.3.0 Changes

Due to the significant changes we've made with this patch all players will receive a respec - all cards, decks and cosmetics will be wiped and any currency spent on them refunded. Additionally, any gems spent on the big brawls board have been refunded.

OVERVIEW:
We identified some problems with our previous progression. Unlocking cards was too random and too slow. We also realized that having access to over 85 cards right out of the gate might have complicated the playing field.

To address these issues we have removed the Big Brawls Board as the primary method for receiving cards. Instead, you can now directly unlock cards with Valor (earned through playing) and Gems (real money). We also increased the value of the rewards for playing so that you can acquire cards faster.

We also added in account leveling. With account levels you will receive additional rewards as well as access to unlock cards. 3-6 cards will become available with each level but will still require Valor or Gems to unlock.

Quests have been introduced to game. These give bite size tasks for players to achieve that will jumpstart their Valor to give additional options for card unlocking. This is especially true early in a player’s career.

VALOR:
Each Seal (tower destroyed) is rewarded with 20 Valor
Successfully defending your Throne is rewarded with 30 Valor
*note: these changes include Conquest games
*note 2: the first 25 games played are given double valor bonus

LEVELING :
Each game played results in experience earned. Experience is used to level up your account. For each level gained you are given rewards and new cards available to unlock. There is a max level of 15 (all cards available at that time) and infinite ‘Prestige Levels’ beyond that.

LEVELING REWARDS:

Level 1: Starting Level
Level 2: 1500 Valor, 25 Coins, 1 BBB Spin

  • Krytos

QUESTS:
We have added Quests to the game. This is version 1 of a system we hope to continue to add to. The main purpose of Quests is to give players small tasks to achieve that will result in a significant gain of Valor to give initial card unlocking a boost.

BIG BRAWLS BOARD:
The BBB is no longer the main source for unlocking cards. We will use this mechanism in the future for other content. It is still used, with a single quality spin, for additional Conquest rewards and Club rewards. The BBB still gives a random amount of Card Pieces to a random card. Pieces can be sold for Valor. The ability to purchase spins with Gems has been temporarily removed.
*note: all previous spins purchased with Gems have been refunded.

CARD UNLOCKING:
As before, cards can be unlocked directly with Valor. You may now unlock cards directly with Gems as well. Unlocking cards with gems is now also much better value.

CLUB REWARDS:
We changed the Club Rewards based on a single BBB spin quality.
1250 Seals: 1 Spin
3125 Seals: 2 Spins
5000 Seals: 4 Spins

Balance

All units which deal splash damage will now deal their splash damage on impact even if their primary target is already dead.

Abominations
  • Now set all pending damage to 1 properly
Gargoyle
  • Critical Strike removed
Retribution
  • Mana Cost from 11 to 12

Progression Changes Coming Soon

Our current top priority is improving card acquisition and our progression systems. We decided, based on community feedback, that a larger overhaul was needed than we had initially planned, and so it's going to take a little longer. We think you will be pleased with the improvements!

General Changes and Additions

Conquest is now unlocked after playing 25 Standard matches. As conquest uses win-based matchmaking (instead of skill-rating based like Standard) we want players to gain at least a little experience before diving into what can be wildly varying match-ups.

Balance
  • Cyclone, Meteor, and Blazer no longer stun when they push
  • All bashes changed from 20% to 17% chance
    • This changes Blademasters, Brawler Gaurds, Demon Tower, Lexikhan, Shank, Vermillion, and Rat Pack.
  • All Totems have had their health increased from 1000 to 2000 and their decay rate increased from 100/s to 200/s
    • This gives totems some added health to withstand attacks and nukes, but doesn't increase their normal lifetime at all

Arcane Larceny
  • Mana cost decreased from 8 to 7
Blademasters
  • Mana cost decreased from 8 to 7
Brawler Bomb
  • Projectile speed increased from 7 to 8.5 t/s
Brawler Guards
  • Now spawns 3 units, down from 4
Flak
  • Fixed not dropping her target if it dies between volleys
Mana Crystal
  • Duration decreased from 20s to 15s
  • Aura now grants +2 Mana for every 8 Mana spent, up from every 7
Meteor
  • Mana cost increased from 5 to 6
Missile
  • Projectile speed decreased from 12 to 10.5 t/s
Shadow Walkers
  • Mana cost decreased from 12 to 11
Steel Golems
  • Mana cost decreased from 12 to 11
Tempest
  • Mana cost increased from 6 to 7
The Rat Pack
  • Deploy Time increased from 1 to 2 seconds
Witches
  • Base damage increased from 35 to 65

Bug Fixes

  • Fixing broken card previews
  • Fixed showing gearset colors that do not exist

What Are We Doing?
  • Fixing bugs!
  • Working on improving card acquisition and progression.
  • Working on 2 new game modes.
Brawl of Ages - Sudsie
Hey everyone, we have been collecting a lot data and received plenty of feedback.

Both the numbers and the opinions have had us busy over the last few days making some design changes to how players progress through the content of the game.

Our motivation in our progression is to drive player defined goals related to the collection of cards. We feel our current system is deficient in 2 key segments:

1.) Pace - currently it is too slow. The changes we will make will increase the speed you gain cards.
2.) Choice - we are unhappy with the ability of our players to get the content they want without being heavily penalized. You will have direct control over what content you acquire.

We also identified that a successful defense of your Throne (your main tower) is deserving of match rewards. This will help assist the pace of progression.

Content acquisition will not be limited to the Big Brawls Board (BBB). We will change its core functionality. BBB will still be used for certain rewards but not the main aspect of the acquisition of cards.

Money spent will also be more direct and give you better value and more control over how those gems affect your progress.

We are working feverishly to deliver these changes as soon as we can. Look for a patch soon that will create much more "feelsgoodman" moments :)

General Changes and Additions

Conquest tickets are now also purchasable with Valor. The daily free entry and gem entries still exist as before.

Gold and Diamond boards may now be unlocked with Seals. These higher rarity boards are ideal for targeting Epic and Legendary cards.
*This ability becomes unlocked after a player's first 20 Silver boards

You can now click a Club in the finder or ladder to view their roster. You can now also see full clubs and invite-only clubs in the finder (if you want to).

Bug Fixes

Numerous fixes were made to Clubs and Club related activities.
Spectating another player now allows you to move your camera freely (as it does when you are playing).

Brawl Clubs Are Here! Steam Early Access / Open Beta Tomorrow

Brawl Clubs are a social hangout where players can work together to climb the Clubs Ladder, earn additional prizes together & challenge each other to practice new decks / strategies.

Brawl Clubs allow up to 50 members

Each Week Brawl Clubs can work together to get Seals and earn Silver, Gold & Diamond Spins

The Medal count of the Club are calculated together and then ranked on the Club Ladder

Club members can quickly challenge each other, challenge the entire Club, text chat, voice chat and spectate other members

This is version 1.0 of Brawl Clubs. We hope to add more features down the road.

Progression Changes

We have slightly increased the Valor cost of cards. This will result in the increase of Card Pieces required to unlock a card.

We have eliminated the Bronze Board entirely. It will now require 10 seals to unlock a Silver Spin.

Conquest rewards have been increased. They have also been altered to remove the Bronze Spin.

Gem Purchasing Enabled

You can now unlock all those awesome cosmetics, premium emotes, premium conquest entry (to get Conquest Coins to unlock the special edition content).

You can also use Gems to increase the speed of content acquisition through the purchase of Big Brawls Boards.

If you have been enjoying the game, "help" us out and "test" the use of Gems :)

Wipe

This patch will be accompanied by a wipe. This will include matches played, Medals, decks, Conquests, cosmetics, and all card progress & ownership. In order to give fair value for the matches you have played so far in the beta we are awarding the following:
