Is it worth to buy Surge? I started on tuesday and don't have a lot of brawlers, so I wanted to get a good one.

Never buy brawlers wait for brawlpass it will help progress alot


zamirfy

i agree it's never good to spend gems on brawlers themselves


I_huntAlone

Thank you for your input


Ok-Degree8635

If you can afford it legendaries i think are worth it to buy when they are on sale for 10 bucks


ITackleTigers

Imo even $10 is too much for one brawler when you can get them all for free in time. I’ve played on and off since just after beta and I only need amber now.


deathwings777

I am playing for 5months . I only used gems on brawl pass and currently have 1legendary that is sandy. Total brawler I have is 34. I recommend buying brawlpass if u r f2p


I_huntAlone

Good to know I can get this far in only a "few" months


deathwings777

Yeah progression is fast till 10k after that it gets a bit Grindy. I push all bralwer to 500 then stop pushing them . If all bralwers are pushed to 500 trophies (which doens't ever happens ) then I would have to focus on quest and unlock boxes until I get new brawler. Btw I have 16.5k trophies


RemarkableAd5806

You’ll get em all there for sure! I’ve been playing current account for a year and a half and I’ve got all brawlers but 4 and almost all are PL 9 or 10 and 500+ trophies. I’m rooting for you dude!!


deathwings777

My luck at start wasn't good . I got my first Epic edgar at 8k then my next brawler surge at 10k . After that belle also near 10k . After that bralwers kept flowing in and I got a streak of 4bralwer continuesly for 4 days straight.


Mateo832212

I cry when i see people who got edgar from boxes


Theo_Leung

Yeah me too


TriclopyrEster

I've been playing for two months and ended up buying the first pass after earning the first 30-50ish free gems. It seemed inevitable that you'd get some rarer brawlers from the pass at random. Or maybe I just won rng. I had a lot of fun and bought two of the 5 dollar 4x/5x value packs without regretting it. I spent 17 US dollars total for a solid amount of gameplay. More characters meant more easy training wheels trophies to get. Personally I found the 4x/5x value packs worth it and then grinding. Not really keen on doing it again though. After 10k trophies the game turned into Emz/Brock/Belle/Stu/Tick wonderland and is starting to feel a bit stale.


Need-Some-Milk

Save for brawl pass


I_huntAlone

What if I already have the pass? Like in a future where I saved gems and bought the pass, but an offer like this is presented


Need-Some-Milk

Buying a brawler isn’t worth it unless u really need that specific brawler. You should save for the next brawl pass then if you already have a current one. For a little more than double that surge price, you get dozens of boxes, a guaranteed brawler, pins, skins, and coins. Even powerpoints


I_huntAlone

Thanks for the tip mate


Need-Some-Milk

No problem mate, though to get all the brawl pass rewards you have to play actively, i’d say almost everyday. So based on how much you can/want to play the brawl pass value changes


I_huntAlone

I did some calculations, and in order to get to 70 on the battle pass, I would need 460 tokens per day, is it doable? Do you finish your battle pass normally?


AdOld3482

You will get tokens from daily tokens, daily quest, seasonal quest and occasional token dublers. You won't have any problem finishing the brawl pass.


I_huntAlone

That's good to hear, cause I want those box from each 500 tokens I collected


Muhaimin554

Im a veteran (been playing the game since beta). I dont play the game as much as i used to. And back in season 4, i didn't even play a single day. But still logged on the last week and grinded out all of the quests over the week and managed to finish it completely. I would say that if you are even remotely active then it is easy to finish it if you focus on the quests. So dont be worried about not being able to finish it


Need-Some-Milk

It is very doable to finish the track even when skipping a lot of daily quests, but I would recommend doing the other quests (the 250 and 500 token ones)


I_huntAlone

I finished all of my quest already


Need-Some-Milk

Then you should get to tier 70+ quickly :)


Winner123456009

Most people finish the pass in the first month (brawl pass lasts 2 months). As long as you play every day you'll be fine


Sleepy_Melon_OP

Then save for next brawl pass


Boh61

Surge is not good right now, the only thing that keeps him on the meta it's his gadget


I_huntAlone

Which brawler would you recommend to buy? If the option present itself or if I even buy them or save the gems for something else


alexlamenace

Do not buy any brawler - you'll get them for free eventually. Instead save for brawl pass, best value for money + 1 brawler for free!


PingasRape

Plus skins pin pack and buncha boxes


Benji-BrawlStars

I bought Bibi because she was new


alexlamenace

Bibi is not new..


Benji-BrawlStars

Was when i bought her


I_huntAlone

He/she probably mentioned when she was new, he/she bought it


AlexTonarini

Just use they


EMZbotbs

Exception might be legendaries (which you still will unlock for free, someday) but it saves you hella long waiting time


alexlamenace

True - but they are so expensive ! And the pleasure of getting one in an average box is 🤩


EMZbotbs

Yes. But you do have to wait 6 months to see one which basically throws your chance of unlocking any other brawler in the trash can


NitMonBlue

Tara is a good option, but I would save the gems for a brawl pass


scruffy1709

i disagree. he is a great choice on many maps, but like you said he needs his gadget and his serve ice cold star power to be viable.


Waste_Listen_6481

Nope not worth it


I_huntAlone

Thank you


DarkShadowWarrior234

No not really. Surge is super reliant on his gadget to be good


Pkorniboi

Never but anything in the shop honestly if you want progress. Brawl pass is the best option for that.


I_huntAlone

Is "easy" to complete the battle pass?


Pkorniboi

Yes


I_huntAlone

I just reached 42 today, how about you?


Pkorniboi

I don’t play as much as I used to, 38


I_huntAlone

I calculated the amount of tokens I would need to get to level 70, 16800, and I would need to get 450 every day until the end of the pass


Pkorniboi

I don’t know if that’s true, but that would be very easy. 200 each day for daily quests, also 20 per win (without token doubler) and also three big quests (500 each) every week, not to mention tokens for rank ups, level ups and basically everything you do in the game, so unless you play like just one game a day, this will be quite easy


hero0gt

Takes around 30 days for an average player that plays everyday to complete the pass till 70 with or without brawl pass exclusive quests


Opening_Difference_7

I wouldn't buy surge, just wait to unlock him. He's good but is way better once you unlock both his star powers. If you wanna buy a brawler i suggest brawlers like Belle, Spike, Leon, buzz, Emz and Sandy. They're all pretty good even without star powers


ECKONONIMMIE

Save up for the brawl pass, it's like, sooooooo gud 😀👍


no_one-behind_you

nope


poopiefart696969

Im upset that surge is the same price as max


AlessandroVerdi

buy brawl pass


PatientVersion4203

Never use gems except for pass.


31Nice

Look at meg,Shes now 69 gems....noice


nice___bot

Nice!


GurnoorSingh777

Not true it's 699


TheCBakery

Surge is poo


s_raut

AngryRedwastaken

Liar look at his profile


I_huntAlone

FALCON20110322

No-Refrigerator-5601

I_huntAlone

whyubullymestop

buy the brawl pass,if you are lucky you will get tons of good brawlers from the paid brawl pass.


whyubullymestop

have fun with the game m8


I_huntAlone

I will


darkninja0301

you have max


Yuuboi69

You’ve been playing for 3 days? Well 1. do quests and save for brawlpass 2.idk


Victourino

Epics are easy to get, i mean, yeah he's a Cromatic, but Surge's season was more than a year, so i don't recomend.


Victourino

Epics are easy to get, i mean, yeah he's a Cromatic, but Surge's season was more than a year, so i don't recomend.


DumbHuman786

Surge is easy to get save the gems for a brawl pass or somthing


chris_afxon

no


lemmesmellmntdew

Since you're quite new, you're indeed way better off with saving for a brawl pass. Surge really needs one of his star powers to be good, and you as a new player won't be seeing those for quite a while.


foxierrr

Yes it's a good idea I bought it my self would recommend


Benemonres

If you buy each brawl pass for $, then yes. If not then better to gather gems for brawl pass


Federal_Dragonfly456

Don’t. I have 24k trophies and I know. Save for brawl pass. Buying surge would be a waste since it’s his gadget that makes it good. So just save for the brawl pass!


SpeechlessYT

No. Just buy the Brawl Pass.


Bitter_Sheepherder59

Are U buying season pass ? if not , it's worth for buying him . he is really op


dla2k

Nah never spend gems on brawlers


123memes24

Dont buy brawlers ir you are a f2p player, save up for brawl passes instead


hisnameisdark

No Max offer, so you got her already, meaning you're new and already got a mythic?? You're doing great man! Just save for the passes always, you'll get 30+ brawlers easily


I_huntAlone

I got Max, it's a girl right? I was lucky to already get a mythic, even thought I didn't like to play her


hisnameisdark

Yes she's a girl. I get it cus she can be hard to play successfully. Either way you've been lucky already


I_huntAlone

I saw a meme and thought it was a boy. Thanks anyway


EMZbotbs

Stupid answer for you, but: most brawlers are about equal in the current patch. If you are looking to buy a brawler, search for one that suits your playstyle. But, like most comments already said, save up for the brawl pass.


I_huntAlone

I'm gonna do that, thanks


crash_bang0593

Nop, I got surge with two thousand trophys


I_huntAlone

Do youblike to play him? Because I got Max and I didn't like her.


ORchannel

If you are F2P so don't buy him! Take this advice from a nearly maxed account F2P user (AKA ME)


I_huntAlone

Every once in a while it appears the option to get 50 or something power for a certain brawl. Which brawler would you recommend me getting those powers? I've choosen Carl so far


ORchannel

I actually maxed out most of the brawlers ordered by who I am good at or who I enjoy playing or is his starpowers good or no? Got it?


I_huntAlone

I got it, thanks


ORchannel

No problem bro! Anytime!


kamado-Tanjiro1221

Brawl pass is best value , always save up for it no matter what


I_huntAlone

It says it is 13x the value, so it really is amazing


kamado-Tanjiro1221

Mhm


thebestcrazy

No don't I asjed the same thing but with a skin (fun fact: of surge) and I saw that the brawl pass is better


I_huntAlone

What a coinky dinky, which skin? Because Surge looks so cool already


thebestcrazy

DIY surge


I_huntAlone

That skin reminds me of the nintendo switch game that you built out of cardboard.


obliviousvibez

hi. some tips for playing if ur going to become a long term, do not buy brawlers unless u are a strong p2w. if you want to have a high total trophy count, id recommend pushing a certain brawler to a rank then all the other brawlers as well. for example, i first pushed all my brawlers to rank 15 when i started, then rank 20, then 21, 22, and for the better ones rank 25-30. shelly is a good brawler to start with if youd like an easy brawler to grind up high. dedication and time is a thing you must have tho


I_huntAlone

I'm doing that and the good part of playing all brawlers is also learning their weakness.


obliviousvibez

yes! you can also find out which types of brawlers / attacks suits you most or you perform best on. for example, im pretty good at aiming and i tend to perform well on sharpshooters. im a piper and bea main. you can also try different events and find which one you like the most and stick with it or wait for a certain map to use a specific brawler. sometimes i wait for snake prairie to use piper because her ambush star power can get me a lot of trophies easily. idk if the maps removed out of rotation tho. also try and save power points for a specific brawler that you like using or ur good at using to get them to high trophies easily. saving coins and getting silver/gold skins = never worth it. also dont try and save up your coins for no reason because that isnt going to get you anywhere. upgrade your brawlers asap or before ur playing them unless ur saving for to upgrade another brawler. my friend saves his money and keeps on losing because of his low level, unless ur super good, try upgrading a brawler to power 7 at least so you can get their gadget.


I_huntAlone

Thanks for the amazing reply, I will do that. Right bow I have around 5k of gold and I never upgraded any brawler cause I don't know if I will like them in the long run.


AliWaz77

It’s better to be patient and open more boxes instead. Idk if you mean you started the game on Tuesday (if so then welcome!) but you don’t need to get Surge right away.


I_huntAlone

I have been playing for like 4 days now and thanks for the warm welcoming :)


frostfishy

I think brawl pass is the absolute best way to progress. I've hade all 8 brawl passes and it's been super helpful. Especially with gold and power points. I have 49 brawlers and about 30 of them in power 10 and 10 of them in power 9, only missing Leon and the new brawler, but I've been playing a couple of years though. Definitely recommend the brawl pass, I also prefer ash over surge so even a better deal.


I_huntAlone

Ash sounds cool for what I seen so far


Lars_NL

I can help pushing if you want? I have a 1 brawler below rank 20 (rank 15) so yeah, I can play if you want add me (dc = Lars_NL#1595)


I_huntAlone

Mine is HackOPac


I_huntAlone

I just sent


Wisaka_Wikoto

Never buy brawlers. You could use those gems to save up for a pass that has a lot of insanely amazing rewards and even a guaranteed chromatic as well.


51267

Surge is good, but he is a hard character to use/get used to. Especially because if you die you lose all his upgrades.


Gl_tchy

Not without a lot of boxes as Surge is useless without his gadget


Pk_Kanga

Save up gems for Brawl Pass, buying brawlers, in my opinion, is never good unless they come with a skin.


Ketanjoshi

If you have the money buy it if you don't save you gems for brawl pass


Tiny_Dancer13

If you are free to play save for the brake pass , but if you are willing to spend a little bit of money that offer is incredibly good and you should totally get it


Thatcupof_joe

no dont buy it its not hard to get him now


Ice_Ninja-BS

Simple. No.


Rares9

Buy meg😈


DoE_Con345-

so how do you have 80+ gems and started the game 4 days ago? doesn't make sense to me


I_huntAlone

I got a lot of gems from the bettle pass, but I have 60 now


s_raut

Alright, I'll tell you something here. Brawl Pass is by far the best way to spend your gems. Chances are, you'll get Surge from a box there. However, Surge is recognised as one of the most fun brawlers ever released in Brawl Stars. If you really think that you'll love him, then I'd definitely say to go ahead and buy the offer. I speak as an advocate of r/SurgeGang.


I_huntAlone

I happy to see someone going against the flow and recomending the buying.


ninfius

yeah surge is very good but if you dont have gadget its like if you buyed the half of the brawler


I_huntAlone

I don't even know what gadget is


ninfius

its an ability that have only 3 uses and you can unlock at level 7 of a brawlre, surge has teleportation and can go through walls, thats very useful to kill throwers like barkey and stuff, so without the gadget is a bit dummy brawler


I_huntAlone

Now I know why people talked about his gadget being so awesome


ThisNameBad

f2p: dont buy, buy bp, much more value, you can get a decent amount of mega boxes, some big boxes, and A LOT of coins and power points, for reference, 1 powerpoint= 2 coins, 1 big box= 30 gems, and 1 mega box= 80 gems, all for 169 gems p2w: if ur gonna be a gemmer, then sure (for someone who has only been playing for 3 days, i dont recommend this option), but he's very gadget reliant, so either get Surge and his gadget, or dont buy either (Note: the gadget may cost MUCH more than surge himself)


I_huntAlone

What is a gadget?

They are character abilities, get on brawl stars, tap brawlers to see the characters you have, press any character, and look on the top-right corner, there, you will see "gadgets", press the circle below it to get a general idea of what that does, you get those from boxes, if you dont understand a thing i just said, [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTX8gEjzFtI) may explain it better:


LeonF0rever

Oh yea think about this. Chance of 0.01 of getting surge in one box. Also 10 mega boxes wasted or 79 gems wasted


Comprehensive-Meal-8

First and last time i bought a brawler was rosa when she just came out for 19 gems but i never bought any other brawlers after


Comprehensive-Meal-8

So no dont buy surge


THAT_BLa

Don't buy brawlers, NEVER buy them


-Trayson-

Here's a tip : Only buy the brawl passes with gems , if you already have one , save it for the next one . Brawlers are not worth it


Late_Commission1081

*yes*


Veilkam

Tour are better with the brawlpass. Wait for next seasons and you will be good to go!


Aqua_h20

no surge is easy to get


A_Cookie_Lid

I got max for 79 gems. I know people say it's not worth it but I only have 2 mythic brawlers and I was not gonna pass up such a good deal. I wouldn't get surge for that price because I'm pretty sure he's an epic brawler rarity.


I_huntAlone

How do I get legendaries for 79?


A_Cookie_Lid

I don't think you can, that'd be a little OP. It was just a special deal because Meg is the third brawler in this trilogy with surge and Max.


I_huntAlone

When did you got her for that price?


A_Cookie_Lid

I got her this week. It would have expired the same time as your deal. Then when I got her, her Hermes skin was also on sale for like 49 gems and I got that too


PandiEpicGamer

N U


EnglishCrumpets

Surge is arguably the best brawler in game when he is fully upgraded and level 4 of super. He is a great brawler so If u are going to buy anyone get him, but I personally don’t buy brawlers. Use gems on brawl pass to get boxes where u can unlock him


Disastrous-Airline14

“Good”


MoltenFan0802

Buy him


Skol77mv

Surge isn’t to hard to pull, but he’s good. I’d say save the gems.


217Freedom

Buying surge is good if you have enough power to upgrade him to level 7-10 because there is where he become super powerful


Cheese_hed_

If u just started u have many to pick on trophy road


iamdabrick

Brawl Pass.


beasty-bs

can someone pls explain why this has 700 upvotes


I_huntAlone

I wondered the same thing when I got 25 upvotes


beasty-bs

wdym


I_huntAlone

I wondered why my post had 25 upvotes just like you are wondering why it has that many upvotes


beasty-bs

which post? crazy to me that my highest upvoted post is a crazy trick shot i hit on cute mali a mortis god and urs is asking if surge is worth buying with 700


I_huntAlone

This post


beasty-bs

but urs isn’t at 25 it’s at 700 so what


I_huntAlone

I wondered why I got that "many" upvotes when I got 25, know that I got 700 I'm baffled by it


Spiritual-Ad-3909

Yup, he's really solid if you play him correctly


Master-woof

Max costs the same amount rn with a higher rarity just saying


thefatboiyt

noooo you can save ur gems for bp.u can also get surge in boxes easily


Winner123456009

Don't buy brawlers unless they are under 3 gems (since brawlers are worth 3 gems)


Frost_Shadow7

Only buy brawlers you absolutely want... If you don't want it incredibly badly don't get it


I_huntAlone

Maybe I just wanted a high-rarity brawler, thanks anyway


Aggravating-Hand4590

Surge is one of the Best Brawlers in the game but he is not good in the Current Meta


xWhiteBrimx

Surge is a god, worth getting


JezevecMartin

Surge Is op


VRunner1

Its all about his Gadget. He is pretty fun to play then, well worth the gems.
