POPULAR Brawl Stars F2P Tips for First Timers
Are you a noob who just installed Brawl Stars but don't have any clue whatsoever as to how you should play the game? Are you trying to get by in Brawl Stars as a free to play player? Then you're in for a treat, sir or madam! Today, I bring you informative tips on how you can survive as a free to play newbie😎
Although Brawl Stars isn't exactly all about collecting brawlers, as each brawler has its own unique ability and is fit for certain maps and events, your best bet is to collect as many brawlers as possible to keep up with other players. For that reason, I will be guiding you today through introducing series of ways to earn as many brawlers as possible as well as their star points to upgrade their power.
Before I start handing out tips, I have to remind you that Brawl Stars, by no means, is F2P friendly. Although the game officially launched in December last year, players have been participating in beta since 2017, making it harder for new players to penetrate what already is established. Nonetheless, I want to remind all of you not to give up. The longer the time you invest into playing it, the better you will become as well as your bralwers. Be patient, fellow brawlers, and let's rumble!
*Following post contains F2P guide for newcomers. Experienced Brawl stars may or may not find this informative. Please bear the obvious😉
1. How to earn free brawlers
As a starting F2P player, the first thing you'll want to do is to link your Supercell account to your app. Supercell offers a free rare brawler, Barley, with its awesome looking Wizard Barley skin just by following these simple steps below.
① Press the three lined bars on the top right corner of the screen to access menu
② Look for a button that says, "Connect" under Supercell ID
③ Press the button and login to your Supercell account. If you aren't registered, you can always sign up just by entering your e-mail
④ Enjoy your complimentary Wizard Barley
2)Trophy Road Brawlers
As many of you may already know, players earn free brawlers that can be unlocked by collecting certain amounts of trophies: 10 trophies unlock Nita; 60 trophiesn are needed for Colt; 250 trophies for Bull; 500 trophies for Jessie; 1000 trophies for Brock; 2000 trophies for Dynamike; and 3000 trophies for Bo. The journey will be long and hard for first time players, but the task is definitely worth your while as some of Trophy Road brawlers are placed high in the tier list.
2. Be a token collector
The most viable way for you to survive and become a decent player is to loot new brawlers and items by opening brawl boxes, and such an act requires tokens. Regular tokens can be earned when you participate in a match; plus, additional tokens can be farmed when you level up; rank up a brawler; and tap new event slots. As for star tokens, you can farm them one at a time from the first win of different events that refresh everyday. For every 100 tokens, you earn a brawl box ,and with 10 star tokens, you get to open a big box which basically is worth three brawl boxes. The final box in the picture above is called 'Mega Box' which contains 10 times more loot than that of a regular brawl box.
Each box can also be obtained when you reach certain amounts of trophies:
Brawl Box: 5, 20, 40, 300, 450, 750, 1200, 1800, 2200, 2500, 2700, 3400, 3700, 5300, 6300, 8300, 8750, 9750,
Big Box: 650, 1600, 4500, 7500
Mega Box: 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000, 9000, 10000, 12000, 14000
However, note that there are daily limitations to farming tokens. Leaving aside the bonus tokens, you're only allowed to earn 200 tokens for every 24 hours or so. Also, because the rarer a brawler is, the lower the drop rate gets which means you'll want to collect as many boxes as possible to increase your chance of getting brawlers with higher rarities.
In order to maximize the number of boxes you can collect, you need to collect to 800 trophies fast because event slots are unlocked one at a time as you progress up to 800. As stated above, players that have access to all modes can benefit from free 10 tokens for an each tap at a renewed event slot.
3. Spend your gem wisely
The one thing I cannot stress enough is that when you're a F2P player, it may not be a wise idea to buy new brawlers and star points directly, using gems. You might think to yourself, 'Hey, isn't collecting brawlers the whole point of this game?' I can't say you're wrong, but you gotta know you can collect brawlers with low rarities easily just by opening boxes. Cost-wise, it's more efficient to maximize the number of boxes you farm. That said, I suggest you buy brawlers only when the shop offers legendary brawlers at a great deal of discount. Then how should F2P players most efficiently utilize gems for the best results? Here are my few suggestions:
1) Mega Box
As mentioned above, a single mega box contains 10x more loot than a brawler box. It costs 80 gems in the shop to buy one, and you can also purchase it with only 60 gems as a daily deal. Once in a while, the shop offers a mega box at a more discounted price of 49. Don't miss this when you have enough gems.
2) Token Doubler
With only 50 gems, you can purchase an item called token doubler which basically doubles the tokens you earn for the next thousand, which makes it equivalent in value with a mega box that costs 80 or 60 gems. Of course, it takes time to collect all additional 1000 gems, but it's certainly worth it more than buying a mega box when you're short on gems.
3) Event Tickets
For those of you who aren't familiar with what event tickets are, let me briefly tell you what they're used for and where to get them. Every once in a while in Brawl Stars, they hold special events that you're to join only with an event ticket. You can also use up to 20 tickets at a time for 20 times more rewards.
These tickets are only farmable when you open boxes or purchase them from a shop WHEN THE EVENT IS ACTIVE. The max reward for Robo Rumble event is 32, and with 20 tickets run, you'll be able to collect 640 tokens at a time. Six tickets cost 10 gems; 20 tickets cost 30; and 60 tickets are sold at 80 gems which means if you spend 80 gems, you can collect up to 1920 tokens, double the value of a mega box.
However, because special events are unlocked at 350 triophies and can be quite challenging, it may be a good idea to stick to using token doubler for awhile until you're ready.
In conclusion, unless you're getting a 49 gems special offer of a mega box,
Event Tickets > Token Doubler > Mega Box
But for newbies, I recommend
Token Doubler > Mega Box > Event Tickets
