Brawl Stars 'Willow' disabled as super kept crashing game, permanent fix to arrive soon

Developed by Supercell, Brawl Stars is a fun game for mobile devices. It poses frantic 3 vs 3 battles with dozens of characters to choose from, each with their own abilities.


However, it seems that one of those characters was causing serious performance problems. More specifically, ‘Willow’ caused a crashing issue when using its super, so Brawl Stars team has disabled it.

Brawl Stars characters have special abilities to use during battles. These skills are known as ‘supers’ among the community.

But it seems that using the Willow super resulted in a crashing issue once the ability hits an opponent.

Game crashes when i use willows super ):

Sometimes my game crashes, sometimes not and only if i hit my super

Of course, this issue is quite serious, since Brawl Stars also has a competitive side. Therefore, once the reports began to emerge, Supercell team took quick action.

Brawl Stars devs decided to disable Willow while they resolve the issue that causes crashes when using its super. But there is still no ETA for the character to be available again.

We will disable Willow from Brawl Stars for the time being until we fix it! Once we have a fix for that, we will let you know! (As a consequence of that, Willow will probably be trending on Twitter🙃)

Surely, ‘losing’ a character annoyed several players. However, the decision to disable Willow seems to have been well received as they can now continue playing without fear of crashes.
