YMMV / Battlerite

  • Author's Saving Throw:
    • When the Halloween 2017 event rolled out, fans were disappointed to find out Halloween chests could only be bought with premium currency (they could be bought with in-game currency the previous year), that the event only allowed players one free chest, and that event items could not be obtained from normal chests or bought with tokens. Stunlock Studios immediately noticed the feedback and clarified that the event quest would be repeated weekly, and made it so event items could be bought with tokens (although at double the cost of a normal item). The next event, Prehistoric Mania, turned the basic Silver tier of chests into Prehistoric during the event, somewhat bringing back the ability to buy chests with in-game currency.

    • After fans complained about Battlegrounds mode and the removal of Casual queue, Stunlock Studios marked Battlegrounds as Beta, making it clear it was an experiment, and reintroduced Casual Arena.
  • Broken Base:
    • 2 vs 2 or 3 vs 3? Both modes have their fair share of fans and haters. Fans of 2v2 prefer its accessibility, while fans of 3v3 prefer its more complex challenge. The fact that abilities are primarily balanced for 3v3, but that 2v2 has more players is the source of many debates among fans.
    • Should Battlerite be considered a MOBA? The gameplay is extremely different compared to games like League of Legends, Dota 2, or SMITE, but a number of people insist that it should still be classified as one since it's a multiplayer online game where players do battle in an arena, meaning it literally fits every word in the acronym. This video by BattleriteSage insists Battlerite is not a MOBA, and the comments are filled with people agreeing and disagreeing with it.

  • Friendly Fandoms: With Paladins. When the announcement of Paladins' "Cards Unbound" update caused massive backlash, several players decided to switch to Battlerite, noticing that the two games are similar in many ways. The Battlerite community welcomed these new players with open arms. Even when "Cards Unbound" was later removed and many of the disgruntled players came back to Paladins, some still play Battlerite as well.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Back in Bloodline Champions, many players called the characters "champions", despite the in-game knowledge base referring to them as bloodlines. This was certainly because of the title and probably because of League of Legends' rising in popularity while it used the term for its characters to keep it distinct from Defense of the Ancients: All-Stars' heroes (likely not helped by how marketing would refer to Bloodline Champions as a different form of Multiplayer Online Battle Arena). In Battlerite, they actually are categorized as champions now.

  • Memetic Mutation: Pestilus's lack of skins is a common joking point among fans. Whenever a new event comes up, expect to see fans clamoring for a new skin for him, preferably something skimpy and revealing. He did get a new Legendary skin, but only as part of the ludicrously expensive Legendary Adventure Pack Volume 2.
  • Most Annoying Sound:
    • Blossom's voice for some. She's loud, and she rarely if ever shuts up.
    • Pearl. Full Stop.
  • Popular with Furries: Presumably the reason Blossom seems to have more fanart than the other champions. Her Winter Kitty and Desert Traveler skins help.
  • Tier-Induced Scrappy: Raigon fits both high and low tiers:
    • Among low-ranked players, Raigon is a high-tier scrappy due to his long-lasting Parry that reflects projectiles and stuns anyone who hits him in melee, and due to his Ultimate that deals damage in a large area and makes him invincible for its duration.
    • Among high-ranking players, he is a low-tier Scrappy due to his lack of good escapes, and because players at this level have learned to avoid hitting counters and consider Ultimates Awesome, but Impractical, mostly nullifying the above complaints.
