  • How stage striking will work:
    • Characters chosen (can be blind picks if a player wishes, ask for TO)
    • Rock paper scissors (winner of RPS is designated as Player 1)
    • Player 1 strikes a Starter stage they do not want to play on
    • Player 2 strikes two more stages
    • Player 1 strikes one stage, and the remaining stage is where the first game will be played
  • How counterpicking will work:
    • Winner of previous game bans one stage from all stages, including Counterpicks
    • Loser of previous game selects stage from remaining stages
    • Winner selects character
    • Loser selects character
    • NOTE: You cannot select a stage you have previously won on in that set unless the other player consents. A bracket reset in Grand Finals refreshes all stages.
  • In the event of a time-out (a game ends without a player’s stocks being eliminated) the player with the higher stock count, and then lower % if stock count is tied, is the winner of the game. If % is tied, a 4 minute, 1 stock game will be played on the same stage to break the tie.
