Broomstick League Now Available in Early Access on Steam

It’s been an incredible roller coaster of emotions thus far and our team is extremely grateful for the passion and excitement surrounding the game!

As a thank you to all our fans we have decided to offer early adopters a 10% launch discount. We’re thrilled the game is now out for everyone and we can’t wait to see some epic goals and brand new moves! Hope to see you in-game, thank you for joining us on this journey!

New features and Updates

Brand New Arenas

Just in time for launch there are two brand new arenas for matches to take place:

Flying Arena, located on the back of a massive beast flying through the clouds.

Dungeon Arena, some wizards may be in for a big surprise as they find themselves trapped in a cage playing for the entertainment of a giant ogre!

Tutorial Update

An all new tutorial has been made to ease new players and give them the basics of the game. The tutorial will now need to be completed before anyone can be matched up online. Some new tips have been added, including how to properly win a faceoff.

Improvements to our Matchmaking System

MMR calculations at match end and adjusted matchmaking system to prioritize placing players of similar MMR in a match together.

Improved Scoring

Our scoring system has undergone some fine tuning, the ball now needs to completely cross the goal line instead of touching the goal line to register a goal.

Bot Difficulty

We’re looking at you Broom and League, our bots have been adjusted and have difficulty levels; easy, medium, hard. Bot difficulty will automatically adjust based on the average MMR score of all users in a match.

New UI

Sparkly new UI has been updated throughout the game, we have also added more clarity for the spell cooldowns.

Chat Options

Who doesn’t like a nice gg after a match. A new quick chat and voice chat option has been implemented along, which players can choose to join or mute other players (in both voice and text chat). There are some brand new UI changes to indicate if a player is currently using voice chat and we added the ability to completely hide the chat.

Store UpdateWe’ve made some UI changes to our store, updated a few new features and fixed the goal explosions to properly preview in the store or player inventory screen.Vote to Skip

The vote to skip replay has been once again updated, this time you’re now able to tell who has opted in to skip the replay.

Camera Options

There is now an option to turn off the 3rd person camera smoothing for more precision.

Gamepad Support.

Our gamepad support has been reworked. Changes have been made to the default control layout and sensitivity when using the gamepad.

Report Option

We have zero tolerance for toxic players or players who demonstrate poor behaviour; we have added in an option to report these players.

Audio Tune Ups

We added in a concurrency rule to audience audio cues, preventing them from stacking too aggressively.
