Spoiler: Brawl Minus Official Ruleset (Updated October 2019) 1v1 Tournament, Brawl Minus 4.2-0104 (This can be verified on the main menu) Items are set to Off and None. Stock and Time are set to 4 stock and 8 minutes respectively. Regular sets are best of 3 matches. The semi-finals (winners and losers), finals (winners and losers), and Grand Finals sets will be in best of 5 format. In the Grand Finals, the entrant from the Winner's Bracket has to win one set of best of 5, while the entrant from the Loser's Bracket must win two sets. Blatant stalling is prohibited. What is considered stalling is up to the Tournament Host to determine. Suicide Rule: If a match ends by both remaining players losing their last stock at the same time due to a suicide move (EX: Flame Choke, Galactic Crusher) then the initiator of the suicide move is considered the winner of the match regardless of what the results screen says, and no tiebreaker is played. Blind Picks: the first character selection of a set must be without prior knowledge of the opponent's character selection for both players. Dave's Stupid Rule: No player can counter pick a stage he or she has previously won on unless agreed upon by both players. Gentleman's clause: any stage may be played on so long as both players agree to it, including banned stages. This can be used in tandem with Dave's Stupid Rule (DSR).* Timed out matches will be determined by the remaining number of lives, then percentage of the current stock. In the event of a percentage tie, replay that match with one life and 3 minutes of time, using the same characters on the same stage. Any Sudden Death match is strictly not to be played. At the end of a match, if the winner is changing characters, they must state so and do it before the loser changes characters. Limit one person to one computer (If two people would be using the same computer, only one of them is allowed to play) Players must have their Discord nickname or username be the same as the name in the bracket. If it is discovered that no names match, your Discord nickname will be changed for the event. Stages Round 1: Each player strikes 2 stages, and the last stage remaining is chosen. The strike order is 1-2-2-1. In other words, one person strikes one, the second person strikes twice, and the first strikes last. Round 2: Counterpick stages can now be selected. The Winner of the last round strikes 3 stages, and the loser of the last round can choose any remaining stage to play the second match on.
