I know that many of our Android readers have been complaining about being left out of the Brawl Stars soft launch party, and rightly so since the game is so much fun. A developer update today sheds light on why we haven't seen an Android beta yet. And, I'm sorry to say, it doesn't seem like Android players will be playing the game any time soon. According to the post, Brawl Stars uses a unique system of local servers, and the only live server right now is in Canada. The nature of an Android APK allows it to spread across the globe very quickly, and that would make it really hard for Android players to play (and hammer the server as well).

The developers are currently improving and testing the game, and they won't be doing an Android or global release until the game is an excellent shape. So, sorry to burst your Android dreams. And do keep in mind that, as we've posted recently, Brawl Stars APK download links are all scams, so avoid them for your safety.

      I think the Android base is so large that they just want to make sure that the Android version is ready for the onslaught of demand. I don't think the technological demands will be much different than Clash Royale. The only difference is the playfield is free-roaming which is causing coding and logistical problems with existing server infrastructure. They already have a working model in iOS. Supercell should have enough money and resources (from all of their other wildly successful games) to pour attention into the Android version of this game. I think it will be a matter of a month or two, at most, before we have a working beta version on Android devices.

    Look, Android devices account for better than 80% of devices being sold right now. There will be much bigger technological hurdles to provide this game to Android users.

    Number one among them are infrastructure. In the US alone, you have to support millions of devices. Worldwide, the number is in the tens of millions. Those are conservative estimates as everyone and their grandmother owns an Android device or two. There must be servers in every region in the US for this game to succeed. Knowing Supercell, they won't half ass a launch. Be patient.

    Secondly, coding is different. The game has to abide by Android's rules. This is a completely different undertaking than it is for iOS. There are changes from the iOS makeup that present a different set of challenges in the Android system. Its not an easy transition. Again, be patient.

    Thirdly, this game is much different than any other Supercell game. It's a real-time team play strat game. Open roaming map with 6 different players all going at once. This is their first go at this type of game.

    Overall, I think Supercell is taking the cautious approach. They want a serious gaming experience for serious gamers and also want a fun gaming experience for casual players. This game aims to do it all. I hope they pull it off.
