Overflow & Points
Storybook Brawl is typically played in 8-player lobbies. When participants can't be divided into completely filled lobbies, an 'overflow' system is used to minimize filling empty seats with AI opponents ('bots').
Points are awarded based on finishes, weighted for higher placement. Earnable points are based on the size of the pod.
This system may create several 6-player lobbies, and up to one 8-player lobby with a bot.
Determining overflow pods
When the players are not evenly divisible by 8 in any round of a Day One or Day Two flight, pods are created according to the 'modulo' (number of remaining players):
|# Modulo||Pod Structure|
|0||No overflow (all 8-player pods)|
|7||One 8-player pod with 1 bot|
|6||One 6-player pod (no bots)|
|5||One 6-player pod + one 8-player pod with 1 bot|
|4||Two 6-player pods (no bots)|
|3||Two 6-player pods + one 8-player pod with 1 bot|
|2||Three 6-player pods (no bots)|
|1||Three 6-player pods + one 8-player pod with 1 bot|
At most one bot will be used in any round.
The bot-pod's players are assigned from the bottom of the leaderboard standings as the round is generated. You may only be assigned to one bot pod in a flight.
6-player pods are distributed evenly (i.e. most everyone should play in one before anyone plays in two), but are otherwise distributed randomly after the bot pod is assigned.
8-player pods are assigned randomly between the remaining players after the bot and 6-player pods.
- Earning at or above the points threshold in the Day One of SBBMonthly events qualifies you for Day Two.
- In Top 8 Races, players are 'live' after earning 10+ points in SBB Monthly events or 25+ points in season Championships.
- Points for 6-player pods are adjusted to account for the difference in size.

If lobbies are played with bots, points are not adjusted if a bot finishes above players.
