AADL-GT Tournament Weekend: Brawl, DDR, Guitar Hero and More!
It's the opening weekend of the 2008 GT season, and it all kicks off with a BONUS Brawl open play this Friday from 11 AM - 6 PM at the Downtown Library! We've got 8 new Wiis and we need to get some serious unlocking done. We won't have any food, but please come on down and help us get as much unlocked as possible for the tournament. Then, Friday night sees our next Revolution Hero tournament for all ages: try to win the Guitar Hero 2 or DDR brackets, or go for the double crown. Saturday features the Smashkart championship series season opener for Grades 6-12 (sorry lain) kicking off at High Noon with Brawl Singles. Full details follow below, but Saturday will also include our first ever gtsystem exhibition match, where the winners of our Smash Singles will face off online against the best players that Detroit Public Library and Columbus Public Library have to offer! Then, opening weekend wraps up with a Rock Band tournament for All Ages Sunday from 1-4pm, and then the last Pokémondays of the summer on Monday from 1-5.
Hope to see you all there, and read on for tourney specifics!
First, the Clan season does begin this Saturday, which means that you need to get your clans formed and registered. We'll be taking clan registrations during the friday festival of unlocking and during the tourney on saturday, but get your clans formed fast to get a head start on the competition.
Brawl Singles quals will be Pool style, seeded by ratings, with top 32 moving on. 3-stock, 5-minute matches; but for this first season of brawl we will not be implementing any bans on items or stages yet unless you have an ironclad reason. However, items will be set to low. Team Brawl will be quals and then tiebroken top 16 teams move on.
Kart will be Double Dash for now; Kart Wii discs are proving almost impossible to obtain. We'll do seeded 4-player, 4-race pools for singles and Lan mode qualifiers for teams, like last season.
Also, for Rock Band, don't forget that the winning band takes home $40 apeice... that's better than most gigs.
Let me know if you have any questions, and I'll see you this weekend!
