Heatwave Summer Sun Sets, Midnight Moon Rises Next!

The Clock Will Soon Strike Midnight... Madness!

Sayin’ a sad “so long” to summer can dip ya down in the dumps, no doubt. One last ice cream, one last sun-bathing session on the Hideout’s roof, one last roll around KO City in your Crew Vehicle with the windows down and the AC pumpin’! 

Yup, summer’s comin’ swiftly to a close, and so too must Heatwave 2022 – the event you could fry an egg on. Soaking up those last few shining summer sunbeams is bittersweet, even to the most stoic of brawlers . . .

But I’ve got news that’ll have your mood bouncin’ back! The end of Heatwave 2022 brings us ONE step closer to our next event: MIDNIGHT MADNESS! And then…?

SEASON 7 REVEAL !!!

. . . but, uh, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves, shall we?

As the summer sun sets on Heatwave 2022, let’s brawl before the clock strikes MIDNIGHT!

Community Hub

Community Hub is probably my favorite portion of the Knockout City Chronicle! Let’s lace up and jog through . . .

Fanart

Our first featured work is a fanart piece of two casually-chic brawlers chilling out on a park bench, sharing a listen to some tunes. Any chance they might be tuning in to the DJ’s broadcast? Or maybe catching one of the latest singles released by The Soundlings? This piece, aptly titled “Good Vibes and Enjoying Their Lives”, is brought to us by artist MsPew.

Can’t wait to see more from ya, MsPew!

It’s an underwater kaleidoscope by artist and brawler FloofyDraws! From their fiery red hair to their aquamarine nail polish, this brawler has made a striking impression on me…one rainbow color at a time! Could this be a still from an Energy Drink commercial in the world of Knockout City? I suppose that’s up to the sleuths in our Discord’s lore channel to decide.

FloofyDraws says the following about their piece, titled “Diving into Knockout City's Heatwave”:

“It was an homage to the memories of the first Heatwave event back in 2021 and I wanted to recreate that with the newer style it creates to this event! The Gremlin takes a dive into the event, cooling down in the pool with her favorite orange overcharge on the go!”

Well done, FloofyDraws!

Ever see a meme that just…speaks to you? This piece by Artemis has likely been texted in brawler group chats far and wide at this point, accompanied by the single word: “relatable”. The Heatwave 2022 event may have left our brawlers sweat-soaked and panting, but this meme? Cool as ICE. Also, I mean, who can resist a Spongebob reference? Keep up the mesmerizing memery, Artemis!

DJ’s Video Pick of the Week

And now, a word from our DJ!

"Great balls of FIRE! Or should I say, cool cool H2O? Brawler @sarknessvg shared this combat clip to TikTok, and I’m still in recovery from the shockwaves! Hovering out over the precipice, so close to demise, then – BLAMMO! – propelling themselves back onto solid ground with precision and ease, all while fending off the opposition. Sarknessvg: your liquid flow is what Water Balloon Fight is brrraaawwll about!"
