Early Access Hotfix 5.1.0 Changelog

· 5 min read

Hey party-goers! In this hotfix, we’re seeing a substantial change to Blanko Brawl, as well as many bug fixes. Let's take a look!

Blanko Brawl

Starting in patch 5.1.0, we’ll be removing Team Brawl Parties from Blanko Brawl. With this change, players will start their Brawls in a Qualifier Party with a maximum of 12 players.

We are continuing to experiment with the format of Brawl. This new iteration will allow more players to proceed through stages and give players more control over their Brawl performance.

Team Brawl Parties could make a return in the future in a new, or familiar, structure.


Given how Brawls will now start with a player count of 12, we’ll be changing the earn requirements for some pins to better reflect this smaller number of players. The changes are as follows:

Shooting Star (Gold)

You completed a Shooter match in 1st place.

  • Now in the top 25%.

Shooting Star (Silver)

You completed a Shooter match in 2nd place.

  • Now in the top 50%.

Shooting Star (Bronze)

You completed a Shooter match in 3rd place.

  • Now in the top 75%.

Vibe Star (Gold)

You completed a Vibe Collection match in 1st place.

  • Now in the top 25%.

Vibe Star (Silver)

You completed a Vibe Collection match in 2nd place.

  • Now in the top 50%.

Vibe Star (Bronze)

You completed a Vibe Collection match in 3rd place.

  • Now in the top 75%.

Wrecking Ball (Gold)

You dealt 5000 damage across all games in a Blanko Brawl.

  • Now 2500 damage.

Wrecking Ball (Silver)

You dealt 2500 damage across all games in a Blanko Brawl.

  • Now 1250 damage.

Wrecking Ball (Bronze)
