Season 17, dubbed 'Mystery at the Hub', will kick off in Brawl Stars on March 6. To prepare the game for the upcoming update and arrival of two new brawlers (R-T and Willow), the devs will implement a new round of balance changes.

The February patch is noticeably smaller than the ones we've had in the past. It's believed that this is due to the return of unbreakable walls and the devs needing more data before introducing harder-hitting changes.

That being said, let's dive into the February 2023 balance changes.

Byron and Sandy were the only brawlers buffed in the February balance changes. These were only minor increments, so they don't have a massive effect on the meta.

On the other hand, the patch introduced a significant matchmaking improvement for team-based game modes. Now, players will be distributed into teams that bear similar skill levels.

But with that out of the way, here's a look at the brawler buffs in detail:
