This rule is good rule. Alice and Arthur traded high appeals for the majority of the contest, with Gambino keeping pace with high-payoff first-position appeals and Bagon's Dreams getting screwed by the rule. Then in the last round, Gambino took a startle, Arthur played it safe, and Alice scored a CM boost off a Hyper Beam.

This was a wild ride. Hampton was a startle factory. Angry Kong aimed high and took a hard startle; Buck got screwed up by Hampton and the Nevermore, and threw in the towel early. Selfish Shellfish, meanwhile, copied Hampton's CM boost and secured a solid win.

Lots of really good plays; the Nevermore rule didn't bind people too strongly until the very end. Alice's startles didn't serve in their favor, sadly; Leah took smart copies and risky appeals and was stymied by Nevermore at the very end, while No Ribbons the Katie consistently appealed high, using their wide pool of first-boost moves to their decisive advantage.

Good performances all around. Nero risked it for the biscuit too hard and didn't have the lead to make up for it, while Not Gengar's skillful and relevant appeals and Leah's copying acumen put the two in first. Marchosias snagged a crowd boost that helped them a lot, but Nero's big startle jostled the copy they were planning to finish with.

Everyone stayed pretty close together, with Omicron Persei 8 and Handa Sei trailing off a bit near the end. Omicron gambled it all on a Sunny Day -> Morning Sun combo that went nowhere; Emily tried to copy it and their lack of gains were a major undoing. Handa Sei got a full sixteen hearts at the end thanks to a crowd bonus, but Cooluma knew when to copy and stayed too far ahead to be defeated.

Life is a circus and we are the clowns. Round two started on CM four and stayed there the whole time. Most of the competitors' copies got brutally foiled with unanticipated startles or lower-than-expected appeals. Nero kept condition high and powered through, even surviving a direct startle from DigiSwan in the very end.

This rule makes for weird plays. Top Kek-leon got a doubled appeal plus a crowd boost early on, but Volkov reaped the crowds' affections consistently. Free Balloon Day tried to capitalize on Top Kek-leon's powerful plays, but didn't pull out the right moves.

Lito and Legend both appealed high consistently; a lack of startles made for high earnings for the Fire-types. Both Togekisses tried to copy, but Maximus tried to use Covet as a copy all and No Ribbons never caught a good boost.

Lots of high appeals and no startles made for a really close contest. Handa Sei took first by copying at ideal times, while the others traded risky and position-based appeals to get their foothold.

Little Miss Sunshine started slow, but aggressively stacked up combos and rode a CM boost straight to the top. Elu predicted well through the whole contest - well enough to tie to fix Ori's money.
