Brawl Stars World Finals 2021, which will take place from November 26-28, will use the fairest servers for all players in the match to ensure lower latency values.
During the 2020 World Finals last year, players encountered some latency issues when competing against teams from around the world. This year, however, Supercell will do its best to ensure that doesn’t happen again.
Last year, due to the pandemic, there were many delay problems in the tournament, which was conducted online. Players residing close to the servers gained an advantage, while those farther away suffered a lag.
The tournament, in which 16 teams will compete to share the $1 million prize pool, will be held in a hybrid model, meaning that while certain teams compete in the event venue, there will be players participating from their own venues. It has not been announced exactly which teams will be in the tournament area.
Kim Jensen, part of Supercell’s competitive gaming team, announced in a tweet that different servers will be used in the 2021 World Finals. Matches will take place on servers that provide the best latency for both teams.
Supercell had announced in the previous months that it will switch to a hybrid format this year, while the 2020 World Finals will be played entirely online. The company invited all teams to Bucharest, Romania to compete in the event. All teams that accept this must be fully vaccinated with a WHO-recognized vaccine or Sputnik V. Players who do not want to travel or are not vaccinated have the option to compete remotely.
