By the way - I didn’t think to address this in the original formulation of the idea, but in the case of a tie, obviously “winner picks first” doesn’t work if both players get a win. So in that case, presumably you just replay the same MU?

Yeah, makes sense to me. Updated.

rule clarification request: it means that only first pick is blind, then winner re-picks, loser sees the pick and can cp accordingly?

That’s exactly right.

Yup, as long as neither player repeats a character

Once a character is chosen, neither player can pick that character? In other words, is the character pool shared, or individual?

Individual

Emphasis added. It seems pretty clear to me that it’s intended to be individual.
