Brawlhalla ranks and characters

It’s always great to brag about your rank in multiplayer competitive games. This guide will cover everything about the ranking system in Brawlhalla and how you can reach Diamond easily.

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that fighting games are the epitome of competitiveness. Every match has a winner and a loser and there are no runner-ups.

Brawlhalla belongs to the fighting genre and it unsurprisingly takes a lot of skill to reach the highest ranks. While lower ranks reward passive gameplay, players on higher ranks prefer an aggressive style.

Regardless of your playstyle, here’s how to rank up quickly in Brawlhalla.

Ranks in Brawlhalla

There are five major ranks in Brawlhalla:

  • Tin – 200 – 909 Elo
  • Bronze – 872 – 1129 Elo
  • Silver – 1086 – 1389 Elo
  • Gold – 1338 – 1679 Elo
  • Platinum – 1622 – 1999 Elo
  • Diamond – 2000+ Elo

Players start their ranked journey in Brawlhalla at Tin and can reach Diamond by winning 1v1 or 2v2 matches on randomly selected realms. Each rank has five stages (0-5) and you progress through them by increasing the Elo rating.

A ranked season in Brawlhalla lasts for 10-14 weeks. At the end of it, there’s a rank reset and all players get Glory according to their performance.

You get 20 Glory for each win but this amount decreases once you accumulate 3000 glory (technically, 150 wins).

Overlapping Elo in Brawlhallla explained

There’s an overlap in Elo requirements for each rank above because every Brawlhalla rank has a derank threshold as Tier 0. This means that you won’t derank from Platinum to Gold on reaching 1679 Elo. 1622-1679 is Platinum rank’s Tier 0 and you will derank only after reaching 1622.

What is Elo in Brawlhalla?

Elo is a numerical estimate of your skill in Brawlhalla. Your Elo increases when you win matches and decreases following losses. The amount of gain or loss depends on the Elo of your opponents. For instance, defeating someone with Elo higher than you will grant you more Elo than defeating someone with Elo lower than you.

Apart from an overall player Elo, Brawlhalla also has a separate legends ELO. It determines your skill level with certain legends and plays a major role in matchmaking. Even if your overall Elo is high, you’ll be placed with easier opponents if your Elo with the selected legend is low.

Tips to rank up quickly in Brawlhalla

It is almost impossible to reach Tin in Brawlhalla as it requires you to lose a ton of Elo. The casual player base usually makes it to Bronze and Silver with some practice, but here are some tips to reach Gold, Platinum, and eventually, Diamond:

  1. Learn all combos of your ‘main’ legend once you reach Silver. Watch pros and skilled creators to understand the viability of combos in real matches.
  2. It is important to hit, but more important to not get hit.
  3. Do not focus on too many legends at the same time. Find a few that suit your playstyle and master them. Switching legends between a rank push can be disadvantageous.
  4. Pick a weapon that you find best and focus on mastering it.
  5. Incorporate mobility moves like dashes and jump dashes in your gameplay.
  6. Find a Camera angle that is most comfortable for you.

All these tips will be beneficial if you practice enough and that’s the most practical way to rank up in Brawlhalla.
