Patch 2.9: Nibbs is here! And she’s gonna set the stars on fire!

Great news! We just launched Awesomenauts 2.9 onto Steam! That means that the long-awaited fifth Starstorm ‘Naut is now available! Hide everything flameable, because Nibbs is here… and she’s gonna set the stars on fire!

Nibbs is the fifth character to join the Starstorm line-up, and she was unlocked as one of the stretch goals of this crowdfunding campaign.

With Nibbs we’re also presenting the most powerful Zurian in the Universe: He-Zurian! Riding his trusted Battle Nibbs into the frey, he will stop at nothing to rid the galaxy from the evil Skreeletor!

But that’s not all, patch 2.9 brings a droppod-load of balance changes and even a few complete character overhauls. Gnaw’s plants are now on a timer and can be buffed by his spit attack and Ayla’s rage ability got some reworks as well!

For the full 2.9 patch notes listing all the changes, head on over to our forums and for the awesome Nibbs’ Premium Skin check out the Steam store!

99c is the Alienware Awesome Cup Grand Champion!

The Awesome Cup is over for this time around and the International mix of 99 Cents is the winning team, taking home three Alienware Alphas as well as some additional cash.awesomecupwinner

After going through the winner bracket, 99 Cents kept up their dominating streak and conquered the championship title, only losing one game of the whole tournament. It was Team BOOM who managed to take the sole game victory over the champions, finishing in second place. Despite their name, 99 Cents proved to be worth a lot more.

Their core strategy revolved around Froggy G, Coco as well as a tankier crowd controller such as Skolldir or Scoop. It proved to be a winning strategy as the bracket can show. VODs and replays of the playoffs games will available here at the Awesome Cup site in a few days. Finals bracket can be found here.

Total prize pool value $5,560
($1960 cash + $2040 Alienware Alphas + $1,560 Awesomenauts Steam items)

1st – International 99 Cents – $600 + 3x Alienware Alphas (value $680 each)
2nd – Brazil Team BOOM – $900
3rd – Canada Team BO$$ – $460
4th – Europe Ion
5th – Europe Gal-o Shengen, United Kingdom Allstars
