August 2019: Brawlhalla Tier List Esports Guide

Today, Brawlhalla eSports are in its fourth year. Approximately 14,000 gamers currently play the game every day in PC, putting the game among the 50 most played video games in the world. With over 15 tournaments throughout the year and a $500,000 prize pool, the competitive scene has never been better.

What is Brawlhalla Legends Tier List?

Like in Smash Bros, Brawlhalla’s legends experience different levels of popularity in their lifetime. Some are very popular in ranked competitions, others are more played in casual gameplay. Every month, a new Brawlhalla tier list is issued ranking the legends in five different tiers: Top tier, high tier, mid-tier, low tier, and bottom tier. Each rank is defined from an aggregated dataset of thousands of players, games, wins, and losses.

In this Brawlhalla tier list, our goal is to help you estimate which is the right legend for your right skill. It is also helpful to understand where your favorite legend stands especially against new-comers. In the first few months, the ranking of a new Brawlhalla legend will be in the higher tiers. However, after new paths, it is possible that his ranking collapses. Thus, it is highly critical for esports pro players to track tier lists and adjust their strategies accordingly.

What is the meaning of the Brawlhalla Tier list?

  • Brawlhalla Top Tier — These legends have a win rate higher than 54% on average. Most top players have been playing them in both ranked and unraked. You have a higher probability of facing them into high ranked games.
  • Brawlhalla High Tier — These heroes have a win rate of 52%. Using them will bring you an advantage over your opponents.
  • Brawlhalla Mid Tier — These legends have a win rate of 51%. They are very close to the high tier. They will be the right picks to counter the higher tier’s legends.
  • Brawlhalla Low Tier — These characters are being forgotten in the gameplay. Using them will probably require the player to be more talented and have specific strategies adapted to their combos.
  • Brawlhalla Bottom Tier — This tier is more like the “Brawlhalla death tier”. We don’t really advise you to play these legends.

What are the Basics of Brawhalla?

This year’s prize pool is double the amount of those awarded throughout the first three competitive seasons. This dramatic increase in the prize pool is due to Ubisoft’s purchase of Blue Mammoth Games, which signifies that the gaming developers and publishers are onboard and want to see the Brawhalla community flourish.

Seen like this, the Brawlhalla eSports community has come a long way since 2016. There has not been a better time to start competing. The competitive scene has gone from a $50,000 prize pool to today’s half a million. Here is a short recap of how it all happened.

For those who don’t know, Brawlhalla is a free to play (F2P) fighting game where Valhalla’s greatest legends brawl to prove their supremacy. The game is influenced by Odin’s great hall of champions (Valhalla). The different fighting modes (1v1, 2v2, 4v4, Free-for-all) make up for a fun, fast-paced. But not just any game. Brawhalla tests your speed, creativity, and ingeniosity. 

Even though the gameplay is similar to the Smash Bros. game universe, the game has its own, epic personality. Besides being completely free, there are a Crazy, clutch moments, plus epic tournaments and showdowns are all normal.

Another cool aspect of Brawlhalla is that it’s continuously evolving. Blue Mammoth introduces new characters periodically. Rayman and Hellboy, for instance, were just included this year.

Brawlhalla’s first venture in eSports came on June 3, 2016, when the Blue Mammoth game devs announced the first global, all-server World Championship. This occasion was the first time that Brawhalla players around the world could compete for money, fame, and power. After the qualifying series throughout the seven Brawlhalla servers, 400 gamers qualified and attended the World Championships. At the time, the grand prize was $50,000. And LDZ was crowned as the first World Champion.

2017: Year Two

In terms of cash prizes, LDZ, Boomie, and Remmy, bagged $20,000, $17,500, and $12,500 respectively. Also, throughout 2017, not only did more players showed interest in competing, but companies like Twitch,, and Astro Gaming started showing more interest.

Brawlhalla Year Two doubled the stakes with a $100,000 prize. Brawlers saw the foundation of the Brawl League, the Australian Open Series, the Brazilian Brawlhalla Series, and more officially sanctioned tournaments. Throughout the year, players earned points to classify to the final event: The Brawhlhalla World Championship. More specifically, the competition offered two categories: 1v1 and 2v2. After lots of drama and key clutch moments, LDZ managed to beat Boomie, thus becoming the one and only two-time Brawlhalla World Champion.

2018: Year Three

2018 was a fantastic year for Brawlhalla eSports. With its presence in five DreamHacks, Brawlhalla entered the big leagues of eSports. Brawlers had not only the opportunity to compete in DreamHack Atlanta but also in the Valencia, Winter, Summer, and Austin DreamHacks. Quite an impressive growth in exposure and adoption year over year.

The community also experienced several memorable moments in the World Championship. Usually, we would see a mix between North American and European players. This time, however, the lineup was dominated by North American players. And they didn’t disappoint. The battles were emotional, filled with high tension moments. The brawls were epic and worthy of Valhalla. But Sandstorm was too much for everyone . And there’s no better proof than his 3-0 victory over Wrenchd to become the 1v1 World Champion.

The season’s closing tournament was DreamHack Winter, where Boomie, the #1 power ranked player at the time, utterly destroyed the competition. Overall, 2018 was an exciting year.

“This was an incredible year for Brawlhalla Esports. We saw the highest attendee counts for offline events, the most prizes awarded in a year, more viewers than ever, and the most exciting gameplay as our pros continue to improve upon themselves. All of these aspects will continue to grow as we move into 2019. I am very proud of what we have done as a community:  the competitors, staff, developers, attendees, volunteers, and viewers at home… everyone’s participation has been integral our scene’s success.”

2019: Year Four

Brawlhalla’s biggest, most epic eSports year so far

This year, with the biggest prize pool ever and the most packed competitive schedule, holds great promise to all of us. We see new developments, new partnerships, and updates coming. Let’s make the most out of Brawlhalla eSports Year Four.

The Brawlhalla Winter Championship kick-started the 2019 eSports season. For the 2v2 brackets, Boomie and Sandstorm partnered to win the NA competition bracket while Blew and Simple won the EU bracket. Boomie and Blew dominated the NA and EU 1v1 brackets, respectively.

Another development, which is a clear signal of what is to come, was the MTN DEW AMP GAME FUEL $40,000 tournament. Besides being the first sponsored Brawlhalla online tournament, it also had the heftiest online prize pool so far. The winners were Remmy and Phazon (2v2) and Sandstorm (1v1).

Still, the season is just starting, and we can’t wait to see epic matches. May the top players around be worthy enough to enter the halls of Valhalla!

What is the Brawlhalla’s All-time List of Top Earners?

Over the past years, the best brawlers have gained hefty cash prizes. Some might argue that money won is not enough to go full time. And that is true, at least partly. Only fifteen players have won more than $10,000. But the future seems bright. The brawlers have never had a better opportunity to win money, fame, and glory.

So, here’s the a quick list of Brawlhalla’s Top 15 Earners:
