There are currently nineteen brawlers in the game, and only two of which are legendaries.
Players get brawlers from Brawl Boxes which can be aquired for 100 coins. Players can join bands to play alongside other players.
Players collect brawlers and select one to use each game.
Brawlers, unlike like Clash Royale cards, come in six rarity types: Common, Rare, Super Rare, Epic, Mythic and Legendary.
If the team keeps their 10 crystals for 15 seconds, they win the game. One team has a safe containing crystals to defend, and one team has to break open said safe in 2 minutes and 30 seconds using various attacks and strategies. During the game, the map fills with poison gas, reducing the size of the battlefield.
Brawl Ball is a soccer-like game mode, where each team tries to score 2 goals. If the score is tied after the first 2 minutes and 30 seconds of play, the walls break down and a one minute, sudden-death overtime period begins.
The crystals spawn from a mine in the middle of the map once every 5-6 seconds.
Each player's crystal count is displayed on top of their name.
It takes 2780 elixir to max out a brawler, and 750-800 dollars real money (as of September 2017) to max out the game on the first day of playing.
There are currently three currencies in Brawl Stars: Coins, Gems, and Upgrade Tokens.
Coins are used to buy Brawl Boxes which contain brawlers, upgrades or upgrade tokens.
Bounty is a 3 vs 3 team deathmatch game mode where players try to kill players on the other team.
The more kills a player has, the higher their bounty is, but if a player with a large bounty is killed, that player's bounty is given to the player that killed them.
