APL[edit | edit source]

The Awesomenauts Pro League is the official Awesomenauts tournament created by several community members and recognized by Ronimo Games in a partnership. The tournament is organized and accepts players of all skill levels, relying on a ladder system designed to pair them with teams of similar skill.

Tournament Modes[edit | edit source]

There are currently three main tournament modes in the APL, and each of them has unique rulesets.


APL Gold & Silver This is the classic APL mode, and occurs every six months. A point system sets the plays in three distinct divisions named A (top 8 teams), B (9-16 teams in rank) and C (17 or lower teams in rank), with the top players of "A" tier competing in APL Gold and the top players of "B" competing in APL Silver. Newcomers and players not up to par with higher tiers are placed in "C" tier and do not compete in the tournament unless they can move up in rank.


APL MegaBrawl This tournament occurs monthly and allows for teams to gain points outside of the current season and balance the scales. To achieve this, the top 6 teams are banned for the first three months, giving teams in lower ranks an opportunity to earn points and possibly compete in higher league play.


Seasonnauts Seasonnauts occurs twice per APL season (approximately every 3 months) and was devised to show the community the APL's ruleset and game modes and does not award points for the point system. There is a total of 16 teams competing in this tournament: The top 8 A division teams, the top 6 B division teams and finally the top 2 C division teams.

Livestreams and Videos[edit | edit source]

The DropPod[edit | edit source]

Droppod logo.jpg

The DropPod is a weekly podcast featuring Awesomenauts community members FourCourtJester, SlowWolf and Weazel. Together they discuss anything Awesomenauts-related, including current balance status, tournaments, builds/strategies and upcoming game content. They frequently have guests attending, amongst which the Ronimo staff members, and are known for handing out prizes at the end of their show quite frequently.


The DropPod podcast is usually featured on the APL's official TwitchTV channel, although it has been featured Ronimo Games' TwitchTV channel before.


The intro to The DropPod can be seen below:

Balance Talk[edit | edit source]

Cupofbalance.jpg

Before Awesomenauts receives a new patch aimed at adressing balance issues, its contents are usually discussed between Ronimo Games and select members of the community playerbase.


Devised by by community member and beta manager/Balance MVP Niko with the purpose of informing the community of part of the balancing process, the "Balance Talk" project was presented to Ronimo Games member Fabian Akker who agreed on taking part in it.


Balance talk is a livestream series featured on Ronimo's official TwitchTV channel and consists of Fabian meeting with experienced members of the community to adress issues relevant to Awesomenauts' balance gathered from their own experience and playtesting as well as from Awesomenauts' balance subforum.


Previously they would discuss several changes to most or all of the current character cast, but as this model proved to be too time-consuming, it was reworked to focus on three 'nauts at a time, with only minor, sporadic changes being directed at the rest of the characters.


The theme song for "Balance Talk" was created by community members Weazel and Keshet specifically for this event. It can be heard below:

Ronimo Announcements[edit | edit source]

Ronimo Games often announces new content for Awesomenauts and its subsequent expansion pack, Starstorm, using a variety of media.
