Brawl Stars ripoff from South Korea?
I don't know if it's available globally, but apparently, NEXON Games and Line Friends, two renowned game developing companies from South Korea(where I come from), have come up with a mobile game that looks quite similar to Brawl Stars. The game is called, "Running Man Heroes," and I thought I should give it a try and write a first impression about the game here.
First off, Running Man Heroes is based on a Korean variety show, "Running Man," and its animated series in South Korea. Each hero is an animalized/cartoonized version of each celebrity from the show, obviously targeting those who have been watching it regularly. As you can see from the video I posted above, its overall gameplay design looks very much similar to that of Brawl Stars'. You're controlling a hero of your choice to either enter a 3 versus 3 or a battle royale match. What is distinctive about the game, however, is that it has a story mode. With two other teammates participating, you are to go through series of enemies and bosses in different stages, following the game's storyline. Apart from that, each hero can equip up to four different items called, "Force ring," and there are challenges to be cleared with rewards. Also, upon winning matches, you can collect points which works similarly as trophies from Brawl Stars.
The control's designed to look the same as well. With similar interface, you can use normal and super attack on enemies, and your super attack is charged every time you hit your opponent. The difference is that there's no reloading, and your opponents are generally much tankier than Brawl Stars. Also, another thing I should mention is that you can hold the normal attack button to charge and deal more powerful damage. What's very off-putting for me, however, is that your character stops moving when it's attacking. It's quite the opposite of Brawl Stars and irritating because it doesn't allow you to smoothly transit from one movement to another.
Quality wise, it's not on the best level, but it certainly does follow the graphics designs from the original show. I just have one word for it: Acceptable.
As someone who's been enjoying video games on any platform, I would like to point out that the overall sound design feels way too old for a mobile game in 2019. It certainly brought back the memories of games that I had played in early 2000 but to call it a good one is just wishful thinking.
Worth a try?
Although many youngsters enjoy Brawl Stars, one thing I can say for sure is that Running Man Heroes is a game that befits much younger gamers, while Brawl Stars is designed to appeal to a little broader spectrum of audiences. Also, my opinion is that because it lacks originality and sufficient quality to be called a good mobile game, it should have a hard time penetrating the market. My final verdict is that I can only say this game is just a copy and paste of Brawl Stars but made with cheaper resources.
Nonetheless, if you would like to give this game a chance, I'd say, go for it if you can access it. Obviously, how every review goes, I'm only giving you a hint of guideline as to what the game is about generally. Please give a thought that I'm not a professional reviewer and also that this review is based only on less than an hour of gameplay.
Rate Your Brawler #2 - Nita
How's everybody doing? Have you guys saved up enough boxes for Gene today? I'm FarCritical, your favorite Brawl Stars content creator on moot, and I'm back with another installment of weekly poll in our lounge, Rate Your Brawler👏👏👏👏👏 For this week, we're gonna take a look at our one and only Nita! Nita, being probably the second brawler you receive in the game, can be earned by simply collecting 10 trophies in total! How easy is that!? With her adorable looks, voices, along with her partner, Big Baby Bear, many players have been choosing Nita as their first choice brawler. Frankly speaking, I think she's one of the best brawlers in the game that deserves many stars😄 Without further ado, let's find out how good of a brawler she is😉
Rupture -Nita deals moderate damage shockwave to enemies. Her fast reloading speed and above average range of attack make her a decent brawler in almost any mode in Brawl Stars.
Overbearing - Nita summons her partner, Big Baby Bear. Summoned Bear has its own individual health points and attacks enemies, boxes, and safe independently. As Nita levels up, Bear's stats also increase as well, going up to 5600HP and 560ATK.
Bear with Me - Every time Bear lands a hit, Nita recovers 500HP, while Bear recovers the same amount when Nita deals damage.
Here's how her stats are by the level
Strong and Tanky
Although Nita's a trophy road brawler you get for free early on in the game, she isn't someone to be ignored so lightly. She has a mid-range attack skill that pierces through any obstacles in between except walls. Also, when upgraded to the fullest, her HP is right below the level of heavyweight brawlers. Along with these feats and with her fast reloading speed and decent damage, she's known to be one the best units you can get for free in the game.
Big Baby Bear
As stated above, her super summons a bear that's regarded as an individual unit. Even as a summoned unit, Bear has high HP, attacks enemies in sight and can work as a living-shield. Also, enemy players cannot benefit whatsoever from attacking Bear as the game doesn't allow them to charge their super attack when attacking summoned units. Most importantly, Bear attacks opponents even when they're hiding inside bushes which means it can work as an enemy detector for you and your teammates to avoid getting ambushed. With all of these are combined with Nita's star power to recover Bear and herself frequently, Nita becomes one of the best choices out of all 23 brawlers.
Great But Not the Greatest - Nita is a jack-of-all-trades type of brawler that guarantees a lot of trophies if used correctly. However, she doesn't have enough firepower to take down enemies at one go and isn't as tanky as El Primo or Bull. Also, her normal attack has decent range but not long enough to attack enemies far behind; and Big Baby Bear can only attack enemies up close, meaning there are hardly any counter measures against long-range brawlers.
Where to use Nita?
Gem Grab - With her super attack to summon bear, she can protect the gem carrier while aggroing enemy brawlers at the same time. Although she isn't as tanky as heavyweight brawlers, she has decent amount of HP, enough to take the position as a gem carrier.
Showdown - Because her shockwave attack has decent range, can pierce through boxes, and deal damage to enemies over obstacles, many players favor Nita over many other brawlers. When an enemy player keeps chasing you, an effective strategy is to keep firing attacks while running away and use her super to summon Bear later on for best results.
Brawl Ball - Because Bear moves and attacks independently, Nita can attack, aggro enemies while dribbling the ball.
Big Game - Her decent tankiness and damage along with her super to summon Bear make her a formidable boss in Big Game. She's also a great choice to be one of the five for the same reason.
I'm proud to present the last week's Rate Your Brawler's result! Many users on moot participated in the poll, reaching up to 110 voters! 👏👏👏👏👏 Most of us voters have given her ★★★★, and only four gave her ★★, making her the average of 3.7★ brawler! What do you guys think? Do you think she does or doesn't deserve such a rating? or do you think she deserves even higher stars? Let me know in the comment section down below!

HookaCola, a user from Reddit posted his or her artwork the other day, and it looks super awesome! Man, I wish I could draw even half as good as that🤣
Did anyone care to try this strategy?
Seemingly, many players are using this to get an easy way out for a win, and I haven't tried it myself and don't know if it really works or not. The trick is simple, when you're playing Bounty with friends, it's basically to get more stars than your opponent's team as soon as possible and go hide in the corner so as to hide from them until the end of the match. Ideally, you'll want to grab the star in the middle as quickly as you can to get the upper hand. There are two things that worry me. If a Bo with star power is on the other team, you'll likely to get spotted fast before the match ends. Another thing is how it's not what developers intended for players to play the game. It's not something players normally worry about, or it isn't something illegal; but it makes me feel like I'm playing the game to just win not to enjoy. Have you guys tried this before? What do you guys think?
What do you think Supercell should add next?
I'm itching to find out what would come next to the game. I've been enjoying this game for months now, and honestly, I think they should consider making a big change to the game as I'm starting to see myself repeating the same thing over and over. I know it's only been a few days after Gene was officially added, but just bear my impatience and share here what you think they should do.

POPULAR Will Brawl Stars Go Big?
Brawl Stars is a really fun game, it’s the latest game supercell has made, its new, its fresh, and just a lol around fun
But if there is one thing I’ve learned from playing clash royale for about 2 years, its that people are gonna get bored of it, and it’s gonna become irrelevant
So the question is - should Brawl Stars go on console?!
Brawl stars is the type of game that can be played on console. Holding down LT would aim and R would be to move the aim, L to move, RT to shoot, you get it
Brawl stars is available on pc, but it’s mainly a mobile game that people play it on, just like clash royale
I feel like making the game on console would get more players, because there are kids out there who have Xbox’s, but not phones. That’s what it was like for me
Tell me what you think of this idea!
Maybe get it featured for more people to see?

POPULAR Rate Your Brawler #1 Shelly
Welcome to the first installment of 'Rate Your Brawler!' What's Rate Your Brawler, you say? It's a series of posts made for you mooties in Brawl Stars lounge to rate each Brawler weekly and see what you guys think about them. I'll be giving a short guide on each brawler on Friday and create a poll which you can rate a brawler yourself from one to five star mark. The poll will go on for a week and the total rating of the brawler will be posted next week! There are a total of 22 brawlers in the game as of now and will be 23 when Gene joins the game shortly. Without further ado, for this week's Rate Your Brawler, we're going to take a loot at Shelly, the first ever Brawler we got to play as!
Buckshot - Shelly's boomstick fires a wide spread of pellets to a medium range. The more pellets hit, the greater the damage.
Super Shell - Shelly's Super Shell obliterates both cover and enemies. Any survivors get knocked back.
Shell Shock - Shelly's super attack now slows enemies for 2.5 seconds!
Beast Mode in Close Range Combat - Shelly's attack moves are entirely based on her shotgun, and it's extremely powerful. When she's fully upgraded, almost any brawler will be taken down within 2-3 shots.
Super Shell? Super Useful - Shelly's super attack not only pushes your enemies away, but it also destroys obstacles ahead. You can use it to get away from heavyweight brawlers that have high HP or eliminate brawlers hiding behind walls.
Well-balanced for Newcomers - Although she's free and the first brawler you get in the game, she's extremely well balanced and good for almost any mode you play. Because she's typically strong in close range combat, spamming her auto-aim attacks will be more than enough to take down multiple opponents at once, and controlling her is super intuitive enough for newbies to get used to.
Low Health - Shelly's health is low compared to other brawlers with shotgun such as Darryl and Bull. Unless her super attack's charged full, you'll likely to get rekt by characters with higher max HP in close range while also have hard time penetrating enemy's defense when your opponents are ready to face you with long range brawlers.
Poor Mobility - Being a brawler with a shotgun, Shelly's skills are entirely committed to close range combats; however, because her movement speed is just not that great and lack skills to get close to enemies, experienced players are more likely to have her hide behind bushes, focusing more on taking down enemies stealthily rather than rushing in.
Where to use Shelly?
Gem Grab - It really depends on the map you're playing. The more the bushes, the better she gets. Hide and move inside the bushes for best results.
Showdown (Solo) - Hiding in the bushes, her ambush can be fatal to any brawler that approaches near her. It's best for you to keep your distance until your super's fully charged. When you're ready, take out your opponents up close.
Showdown (Duo) - Shelly goes well with Brawlers with high HP like Bull or El Primo. Have her hide behind the bushes for surprise attacks on enemies.
Heist - Shelly offers solid defense when it comes to playing Heists. Her super attack can push away opponents when your team's safe is in danger.
Brawl Ball - Also in Brawl Ball, her super attack comes in real handy when you want to get rid of boxes in front of your opponent's goal post.

POPULAR How to hit shots while aiming
Brawl Stars isn’t a first person shooter, some might say, why would you need tips on aiming?
Well, especially if you’re playing a sharpshooter, aiming is very important. Quickfire is only accurate to a certain range, and it doesn’t account for movement. So I decided to provide some tips on aiming and hitting your shots.
You should take movement into account by tilting your shots ahead of the enemy (if they’re moving) as the enemy will walk into your shots. Another good tactic is called “kiting” this involves moving forward to fire a shot, and then moving backward once the shot is fired. A handy tactic is to move in the direction the enemy is moving while firing. (Only works with characters who fire in bursts, like Colt, Rico, etc.)
Hopefully this is helpful to you, these tips are very useful, and can lead to hitting every shot if practiced enough.
