Brand New Ladder for Ranked Season 33!

Brand New Ladder for Ranked Season 33!

The Dwarves of Ivaldi have undergone a laborious process of repairing all damaged weapons and armor in preparation for a brand new Season of the Grand Tournament. Ranked Season 33 started the moment Season 32 ended, because in Valhalla our Legends need not rest in their quest for eternal glory. Speaking of Glory, check your pockets Ranked enthusiast Brawlers 😏

What better time to reset the Ranked Season than in the middle of the 2024 Heatwave Event?! We’re still basking in the sun out on shores world ‘round. So hop in game and check out what the Heatwave Event has to offer; Skins, Colors, Avatars, Podium, and more!

The Midseason Championship was an incredible event and we want to thank each and every Brawler that participated in person and online! Our South American Champions shone extra brightly taking home all three CEO belts. If you’re interested in checking out photos from the event click here. Thanks Veey! 📸

At the beginning of every season, there is a soft Elo reset, your placement matches are reset, and you receive Glory – the currency you earn by playing Ranked.

We hope you enjoy the new season! 

Soft Elo Reset Formula 

Soft Elo Reset is based on your current Elo at the end of the season. 

1v1 and 2v2 Personal Rating 

  • Under 1400: New Elo = Old Elo
  • Over 1400: New Elo = 1400 + (Old Elo – 1400) / (3 – (3000 – Old Elo) / 800)

2v2 Team and Legend Rating

  • 2v2 Team & Legend Ratings have been brought closer to 750.
  • Under 2000: Elo = (Elo + 375) / 1.5
  • Over 2000, we aggressively brought you back down as a way of resetting the top tiers.

Glory Earnings Calculation 

Glory earned is based on a combination of your Highest Peak Rating (highest 1v1, 2v2, team, or Legend rating/Elo) and total Wins. This was designed in order to reward both skill and dedication for those who pursue Glory. 

You gain 20 Glory per win up to 150 wins, which gets you 3000 Glory. After 150 wins, each subsequent win gives you slightly less. 

Note: There is a minimum requirement of 10 games played to be eligible for Glory based on your rating. For help estimating your Glory Gained or New Elo after the reset go to:

Placement Matches

Players beginning their Ranked climb have 10 placement matches to better determine their skill level and starting Elo.

  • Each season, for Ranked 1v1 and Ranked 2v2, your first 10 matches will serve as placement matches that will have a greater effect on your rating than normal games. Your rating will be hidden until after you have completed your placement matches for that queue.

Valhallan Rank

Valhallan Rank will open on Wednesday, July 17th at 5am ET/9am GMT.

To become Valhallan, players must be Ranked in Diamond, have at least 100 wins during the Ranked season, and attain a rating among the top players in their region.

Each region has a limited number of Valhallan positions:

  • US-E / EU – Top 150
  • SA – Top 100
  • SEA / US-W – Top 50
  • AUS / JPN – Top 25
  • SAF – Top 15
  • ME – Top 25

These numbers are based on each region’s population and will be considered for adjustment on a seasonal basis.

Unique Valhallan Rewards

After ranking up, players will immediately receive the Valhallan Avatar, Loading Frame, and Season Title Reward.

Valhallan Loading Frame: 

  • Unlike other Ranked Loading Frames, the Valhallan Loading Frame can only be used while the player is currently in the Valhallan rank.
  • Players are granted it immediately upon achieving the Valhallan Rank, and if they are pushed out of the rank, the Loading Frame will be revoked when the daily reset occurs (9am UTC/5am ET/2am PT).

Valhallan Title Reward:

  • Players are awarded a Title immediately upon achieving Valhallan.
  • Each season will have a unique Valhallan Title Reward. I.E. “Valhallan S33”
  • The Title is never revoked, regardless of rank.

Valhallan Avatar:

  • Instead of an Avatar that upgrades at the end of each season, the Valhallan Avatar is awarded immediately upon achieving Valhallan.
  • The Valhallan Avatar has two states: active and inactive. The active Avatar is rewarded immediately upon achieving the Valhallan rank but can be downgraded to the inactive “Fallen” state if players fall out of Valhallan rank when the daily reset occurs.
  • To reactivate the Avatar, players need to reach the Valhallan rank again. Players will retain ownership of the Avatar between seasons, but it will be in the “Fallen” state at the start of every season.

Ranked Borders from Season 32

If you placed Gold, Platinum, or Diamond at any point in the season, you are given a Ranked border based on your highest rank that other players can see in the match preview screen. These will last for one season and will be updated again after the new season comes to a close. 

Your border from any previous season does not carry over or have any impact on your current border reward.

Ranked Avatars from Season 32

Ranked Avatars include prestigious versions for those who’ve placed in high ranks during previous seasons. For example, if you placed in Platinum last season and Gold this season, you’ll receive the upgraded versions of the Competitor’s Badge and Gold Emblem. You will still have your original Platinum Emblem Avatar from previous seasons. 

You must play a minimum of 10 games to receive Ranked Avatars / Borders at ANY rank.

  • Competitor’s Badge: Awarded to anyone who plays 10 Ranked Games or more.
  • Gold Emblem: Awarded to players who finish at Gold or above.
  • Platinum Emblem: Awarded to players who finish at Platinum or above.
  • Diamond Emblem: Awarded to players who finish at Diamond.

Upgraded versions of Ranked Avatars are awarded to those who have earned the same Avatar in any previous season.

For players who have reached the 5th Tier of an Avatar by reaching a certain rank or higher for five total seasons: the 5th Tier of that Avatar will stay in your inventory permanently! Congratulations on your achievements! 

The 6th Tier Avatar, for those who have reached a certain rank or higher for six total seasons, will take on a brand new look! These Avatars will grow more and more prestigious with each subsequent seasonal repeat up to Tier 10, at which point the Tier 10 Avatar will remain in your inventory permanently. 

In short, every 5 Tiers of Avatars, you’ll keep the most awesome, most decked out version permanently, and then start work on a new version for subsequent tiers for 6-10, 11-15, and so on. 

Players can continue to earn Glory mid-season and earn exclusive Title Rewards. With every new season, the Seasonal Ranked Queue’s Elo will do a full reset.

Exclusive Ranked Rewards – Skyforged & Goldforged! 

Beyond glory there is immortality! In Mallhalla, in the “Ranked” tab, players can spend their hard-earned Glory to purchase Skyforged Colors, Weapons, UI Theme, Emotes, and Sidekicks. Skyforged Colors are only usable on Legends that have reached level 5 or greater.

Us Devs had a blast at the Midseason Championship and from what we’ve heard every Brawler in attendance had a blast… even if they got blasted out of pools 0-2. Being at a LAN together is one of the most important friendship and bond affirming experiences in gaming. There is no better feeling than facilitating an event like this for our players and friends. If you were in attendance, thank you for being there. If you watched online thank you for being there in spirit.

We look forward to seeing you all at BCX 2024 – Grab tickets at BCX.LIVE while there is still an early bird special 🐦

Imugi the Warrior Chef is as mighty on the battlefield as he is at the grill. He’ll be chopping his way into Brawlhalla soon.
