Supercell has revealed that a surprise set of balance changes were snuck into the game during a recent maintenance break. It has been several weeks since Season 14, Robot Factory was released, and we've seen how the meta has shaped up after the introduction of two new brawlers. Their addition and the plight of several long-standing brawler issues meant that this was the right time for Supercell to jump in and restore balance to the game.

So without further ado, let's dive into all the balance changes that were recently introduced to Brawl Stars and which brawlers were nerfed, buffed, or adjusted.
