Out of the top 8, the only player who doesn’t currently grind Brawl over other games is Nairo.

As the Brawl scene has diverged somewhat from the Smash 4 scene, we’ve seen players rise up to the challenge and work to optimize the game despite its relative inactivity.
Another Super Smash Con is on the books. What happened this year for Brawl at SSC?.
