  1. Me: Brock has the most skins of any brawler, tying with Mortis, with 3 skins.
    Supercell: New skin idea, Hot Rod Brock!
    Me: Why Supercell?!


  2. “Ability to send in-game mail to Club members (available for leaders & co-leaders)”
    Isn’t if president and vice president (I don’t check on club much, don’t judge)


    • Hmm that’s actually really interesting because it should be president and vice president. I guess that’s a typo by the Brawl Stars team
