In Brawlhalla’s ranking system, there are 6 ranks: Tin, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond.
What is the Bronze Rank in Brawlhalla?
Bronze is the second lowest in the game, and is where a lot of players give up on their climb. This is partially due to Brawlhalla’s flawed ranking system - there aren’t placements in Brawlhalla, everyone starts at the bottom. Because of this, people who are very good at the game are matched up against people who are near new players, which can be pretty disheartening. Don’t fret, this is always a very temporary part of the learning process, and is something we all experienced on our way to the top.
Is Bronze a good Rank in Brawlhalla?
Being a Bronze Player puts you in the top 99% of all Brawlhalla players, which is practically the same as Tin, so it’s not very good.
What ELO is Bronze in Brawlhalla?
Tin ranges from 950 to 1150 ELO. If you go below 950, you’ll stay in Bronze 1 until 1149, where you’ll enter Tin 4.
How To Improve from Tin
It’s totally possible that your controls haven’t been optimized yet, so here’s the guide on that: the first control to change is Press Up to Jump - if you have this enabled, it’s very difficult to perform Neutral moves. We generally press Up to perform a Neutral move, because pressing nothing is very difficult to time, and can be inconsistent. Make sure you have Press Up to Jump disabled.
The next important control to change is Prioritize Neutral Over Side. In conjunction with disabling Press Up to Jump, this means that inputting diagonally in any direction will perform the Neutral move. This is important for some combos/strings, makes juggling a piece of cake, and also increases consistency across the board.
A crucial portion of getting out of Bronze is research. Having the knowledge of not only how your weapon/legend works, but also some simple fundamentals, such as neutral and matchup dynamics, can really make the difference in how long it takes for you to start improving. There are literally hundreds of repositories for research, but I think the best places to start are YouTube and Discord.
YouTube is a more passive research process - you just look up some concept (neutral game, for example), and watch 2-3 videos going over the concept. This will add more Brawlhalla info to your recommended feed, so you’ll be caught up automatically with all sorts of concepts.
Discord is more active, as you’ll mostly learn through actual conversations/lessons. Just sparring with players who are around Gold is going to help you really start to understand what’s keeping you from improving. For me, getting to Platinum was mostly due to constantly sparring, performing in small indie tournaments, and studying professional play.
Being in Bronze is the start of people who actually care about the game, so it’s time to start the grind. As I always say, consistency is the key to getting to Gold. As long as you’re playing frequently and practicing, you’ll probably climb. To maximize efficiency here, try to schedule out your warm up routines and your ranked blocks. You’ll generally want to do them back to back, with about 5 minutes in between. Also make sure that you’re in the right mindset for playing ranked - don’t play when you’re upset about something else, tired, hungry, or anything else that may affect your gameplay.
My final tip for consistency is to make sure you’re not doing what I like to call ‘death runs’. If you’re playing the game nonstop for more than an hour, your mental capacity is going to start deteriorating, so make sure to take 10 minute breaks every hour. I generally like to rehydrate, go to the bathroom, stretch, then go review your previous block.
Quickest Tips for Climbing
I’ve never liked the ‘get quick rich’ schemes of ranked climbing, so I’m not going to give you some arcane secret that will make you win every game. Instead, I’ll tell you what Bronze players are not capable of handling. At this division, players dodge very consistently. This means that players are frequently caught dodging in highly predictable ways (just dodging in, just spot dodging, etc.) Because of this, you can very easily punish your opponents, so weapons like Gauntlets and Katars are excellent in this division. On top of this, Signature combos are great, as your opponents aren’t quite comfortable enough with the appropriate dodge windows for each move. Wu Shang, Cassidy, and Lord Vraxx are all excellent examples of Legends with good Signature combos, which will lead to extremely early kills. My final piece of insight is that you need to remember that you are still a Bronze player.
This guide doesn’t instantly make you better, it just gives you the building blocks to start improving. This means that you are probably also susceptible to a lot of these tactics, so be careful. The main way to prevent yourself from being cheesed by any of these strategies is to do replay review.
Bronze is the second lowest ranked division in Brawlhalla.
You’ll probably spend 6-8 months here, once you start getting consistent. If you’re really struggling to get out of this division, consider hiring a coach, or just start playing against higher level players.
