Death, taxes, Super Smash Bros. ruleset overhauls: the constants of life. While there is often talk of making sweeping changes to the rules of a Smash game, relatively few see use in tournament play, much less widespread adoption. Examples of “successful” ruleset changes in Melee recently include wobbling bans and ledgegrab limits. Both have seen regional adoption, which is better than a 6 minute timer or frozen Pokémon Stadium, for example, have ever done.

This is the first year at SSC where top 8 was dominated by active Brawl players rather than Brawl retirees. 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.
