Grand Championship Details

AADL-GT: Ann Arbor District Library Game Tournaments

The Grand Championships of the 2005 season are barely a week away, and you've got questions about how it's all going to work. Well, you're in the right place for answers. Here's how it's all going to happen.

First, the Clan Cup will start promptly at 12:00 on Saturday, December 17th, so if you're a primary or a sub for one of the top 8 clans, be there on time (or even early), or forfeit your first match. Subs can absolutely be used in the Clan Cup, but at least one primary must be present, and the four players who play for the winning clan at the Clan Cup are the ones who will get the prize, 4 512mb iPod shuffles. Now, your Clan's standing is going to figure heavily in how much opposition stands between you and victory; not only will the higher-ranked clans get byes for the first rounds, but also, any ties will be broken by the clan standings. So, read on for full details.

Round 1:

Clans 5-8 face off in Super Smash Team Battle, 4-stock, 5-minute, Items Medium, Final Destination. 2 clans advance, so if more than one clan has a winning and losing team, the higher-ranked clan moves on. We then have 6 clans.

Round 2:

Clans 3-6 face off in Mario Kart Co-op Race. The two clans with the highest combined total score from a single race move on. Down to 4 clans.

Round 3:

Clan 2 faces Clan 3 in Mario Kart SHINE THIEF! 1 player per kart, the clan with the Shine when time runs out moves on to the final.

Round 4:

Clan 1 faces Clan 4 in Shine Thief, winning clan moves on to the finals.

Round 5:

Clan Cup finals; surprise game... winning clan takes home 4 shuffles!

Wildcard Tournament:

Commentators will be Tom and Leinad for the entire Wildcard Event. The wildcard tournament will have Super Smash Qualifying rounds, our standard 4-player, 2-stock, 2-minute format. Number of matches depends on turnout. We then move on to Mario Kart Elimination, with 4th or better moving on, until we have our final 8 wildcards. They then join the prequalifiers in the Grand Championship Brackets.

Grand Championship

Commentators will be from among Tom, Leinad, Sravan, Joe, Muffincat, Duck, and Figwit. We'll use a similar format to the wildcard; Super Smash, 4-player, 2-stock, 2-minute format, with multiple matches depending on turnout, and then the top players move on to Kart Race elimination rounds. When we get down to the top 8 players, we'll move to the first of two surprise games for the Championships. The first surprise game will take us down to 4 players, each of whom will be winning one of the prizes, it's now just an issue of who gets victory and the first pick of the prizes. We'll have two semifinal matches with the final surprise game to determine who goes to the third place match and who goes to the finals... and then the big event. The winner gets first pick of the prize pool, 2nd gets to pick from what's left, etc. The prize pool contains a Sony PSP value bundle, a 30gb iPod with video, a Nintendo DS Kart Bundle, and a Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP. Plus, everyone who attends should get a sweet new AADL-GT/AXIS t-shirt.

Recruitment bonuses will be posted soon. Let me know if you have questions, and see you Saturday.

SWEETNESS!!!!!!!!!!
so shine theif hmmmmmm. that means 8 people will be playing at once and 4 from each clan. then the guy who wins at the end takes his clan to victory as well? awsome. eli i request that clans 1,2 and 3 play some melee as well as mario kart. my predictions if the rules don't change is that the vaccinated monks, and the trouble monkeys will be the top 2 clans. then its all chance from there. but we shall be victorious!!!!
will it be the top 32 moving on to mkdd elimination? turnout will be huge trust me.
o yea u said that u would do a leaderboard based grands. is it leaderboard based or did i miss something?

can me and joe commentate for rounds 1-3 in the clan cup cuz we won't be playing?
[gtlogo:TMC]


Eli give us our recruitment points, please. Do I have to make that list again? It had the whole Foreign Exchange clan, Evil Bus Driver, Ria/Figwit, Bubblingbeebles, Ampshock, I conceded Mouse to the super shrooms, C I A, Gertlex, Connor H., Devin S, Doompants and Vwampage, Scuzzy4242 weren't on the list but my clan did bring them. That should be 1919 points but I feel like I'm forgetting people. Gahh I wanted to avoid this by giving you the list early so I wouldn't have to recall who I dragged to the events. I want those points so my clan can just own people in shine thief and the surprise game and watch the other clans struggle to get to our level.

Yes we have Battle again; even if only for the clan cup (I’m so happy). Free t-shirts Huzza.

Sravan if we get our recruitment points we will pass SDK to become second place. So you'll have to deal with taking turns.

Thanks for allowing Figwit to be a commentator.

Edit:
Ok, SithLord and Sith Apprentice are two I missed the first time around. So now that's 2121 points.

My guess is the final surprise game is Rock Paper Scissors.


The Foreign Exchange recruited a guy named phil but i don't think he came. I think the sur-prize game should be arm wrestling. Or bloody knuckles. Or a plain old fight. Or original super smash. I was better at that game than melee. [gtlogo:FX]


You're making the clan semi-finals Shine Thief...?

Doesn't that seem a little too random?

CURSES!!!! Why do you have to survive Melee before you go on to Kart! Why can't we have it like we did before, where your standings in Melee and Kart determine your place!?! WAAAAAAAAAH!

4 stock five minute?!?! That's awesome cuz that's how I normally play and the chances of sudden death are smaller and i suck at sudden death. [gtlogo:FX] How long is this whole thing (clan, wildcard, gc) going to take? It will definitely go past 5 for sure.


Wait a second Pickwick when did you change FES out? Nuts that means I didn't get your whole clan as of now. I can't believe this why did you change him out. It's not fair, I had your whole clan and you have to switch in your brother because one of your primary members was unreliable. I had to deal with all 3 of my other clanmates being at Band Camp. Gahh this sucks becuase if we don't get your clan bonus we only inch past SDK.

Edit:
Nuts what happened to the clan scores? They changed for some reason. It couldn't have been the recuitment bonuses because it wasn't big enough for my clan.

2nd Edit:
How is Nick G in two clans?

yea what did happen to the clan scores? our recruitments arent that big.
yea i personally don't like shine theif and hope eli changes it to race.
also add some melee for clans 1-3.

[gtlogo:TMC]


Wait where did the SDK get 3000 points from? They spiked up from 11,000 to 14,000 for no reason I can tell. I noticed other clans jumped too but not as much and as I stated above it couldn't have been from recruits because we only jump 900 when we had 2000 from recruits.


I believe this change in scores calls for a...

WTF MATE?!?!?

yeah we switched FES out a while back like two tourney ago. i haven't been paying attention to the clan leaderboard so it looks the same to me in terms of place. [gtlogo:FX]


Places stayed the same but TMC, SDK, VMC and BSC all gained points. all except SDK gained about 1000 while SDK gained about 3000.

[gtplayer:139] Knight of the octothorn table
[gtlogo:VMC]


end of ze world is awsome. sdk didn't get any recruitments i think.
Sravan if we get our recruitment points we will pass SDK to become second place. So you'll have to deal with taking turns. whats that supposed to mean?
[gtlogo:TMC]


It's about commentating on the clan cup. Sorry I forgot to finish the statement.

Also I did the math wrong it's only about 1500-2000 point bonus that the SKD clan received. I didn't know the original scores but noticed the changes so I had to do it indirectly.


OK, I've got your lists of recruitment bonuses and will be entering them this weekend. The change in scores is because we discovered that clan registrations got missed on the round 4 team events. Some teams did quite well, that's where those scores come from. Duck, you will still get a clan referral bonus even though they changes their primary. That's not your fault.

Clans 1-3 playing some Melee in the clan cup? I hadn't thought of that, but I'm not really concerned about it. We can't switch games back and forth too much, as it just takes too much time, and it's too likely to have mega ugly ties with Melee and the clan format. It's highly likely that every clan in a match would have a winning and a losing team, and in that case, with the ranking tiebreakers, why did we even bother? The thing about Co-op race or shine theif is that the likelihood of a tie is low.

I think Shine Thief will be totally awesome; each clan will be on one side of the room so they can coordinate their attacks and defense. Having 1 player holding the shine and 3 to defend him sounds like a pretty sweet dynamic to me. As I said, the winning clan is the one that holds the shine when the timer is up.

As for GC qualification, which I had meant to include in my post, I want to shoot for around 64 players in the GC bracket so that we don't have to skimp on the quals. So, here's what we'll do: We've got the people who've already qualified for the GC by winning an event, and the members of the 8 leading clans, which won't be settled until I get all the bonuses posted. I still need some recruitment data from turtle clan, I think, and if anyone knows if they will be playing in the clan cup, that would be good to know. Anyway, if we take the people who have already qualified (51 players), add the players in the top 8 clans who haven't already qualified (about another 6 or 7), and the 8 wildcard winners, we're pretty close to 64. However, it's safe to assume that not all the GC qualifiers will show up, so I'm going to qualify all players currently ranked 64 or higher for the GC, unless someone can give a compelling reason not to. Last year the wildcard event took far too long. We need it to be short, sweet, and intended as a last chance for marginal optimists or rookie contenders.

What do you think?


Two things: One, yay for putting the clans on the same side of the room, I was thinking about suggesting that but never got around to it. Second, Shine Thief with a timer? Can you do that? Never knew you could.

Tom the Shine thief in DD is differnt then the DS version. There is only one shine and it has a min timer that counts down. I'll tell you how it works monday if you don't play it this weekend.

It all sounds good to me.

[gtlogo:VMC]


I really hate the idea of in the GC, u have to win Smash before u do Kart. Eli, y don't u make it regular and even with the events. That just means that people who r good at SSBM and suck at MKDD r gonna get far and it wont be good competition. U should just make it normal like before, SSBM and MKDD and then surprise round for people who qualified in each of those events. I'm sorry I haven't been talking in a long time. I didn't have time because now I have driving school and I had to do some driving. I'm pretty good at it and I imagined it just like MKDD, which I'm pretty good at and now I got my driver's permit. Sweet! Eli, seriously, u got to change some of ur original rules.

Giggity Giggity Giggity, Alllllll Right!

Black Shark Clan


I need to know, r guys like The Loser, Nilofar, adn Leinad stiil in the wildcard? Because aren't the people in the top 8 clans automatically in the GC?

Giggity Giggity Giggity, Alllllll Right!

Black Shark Clan


Well the GC is for the overall best at the tournaments not the person who is the best at one aspect.

I'm sure no one minds you not being here all the time.

Yeah whenever I go driving I carry a 3-pack of turtle shells.

Yeah members of quilified clans are in the GC.


Really? Tom, your bro doesn't have to do wildcard anymore. [gtlogo:FX]
Ian you qualified for MMPC? I took it but we were having a review day in chem so I left during 2nd hour. Since I had like 5 min to do it (started at end of 1st hour) I guessed on everything and left. I got a 11 suprisingly. Well u know what ms. macke said, "You have to get an 8 at least because a monkey can get 8" eli u spelled "thief" wrong


Yeah, I quilifed along with Nick TB., Leinad, jlgelinas, and 60 other pioneer students. I knew like half the kids in the room on wensday but I'm to lazy to list everyone I know.


i presume there will only be 1 shine thief round right? the top 64 thing is alright because not everyone will show. i'm ok with taking turns to commentate with the vaccinated monk clan in the earlier rounds. does the new clan standings affect the results from last tournament cuz the other trouble monkey team made it to the final co-op match and it should give them some inheret points.

also when i said leaderboard based qualification i meant like what u did for the clan cup. like the top 16 people get byes for the first round etc.
[gtlogo:TMC]


God forbid this should ever happen again, but I actually agree with Black Shark.

*Crowd gasps!!!*

No, seriously. If it's a contest of the best all around gamer, then why does someone have to survive through melee when it's not their best game, and then they might not even make it to Kart, which is their stronger of the two events.

(I am of course talking about myself, in case any of you guys missed that.)

i think we should just keep it the way eli says it should be...

The Loser will conquer all!!! (Cough...cough...*gag*)


what part of india?

[gtlogo:TMC]


Omid, what r u thinking? U r going to get cream-filled in the Smash tourney, u wont make it, I wont make it, Nilofar wont make, and I don't think Nick11 will make it either. Eli, please just make it even between the two events. MKDD is my best event, and I'm sure some people here r complaining about the same thing I'm complaining about. And I'm glad someone agrees with me(thanx Tom). I agree with the part that Tom is saying. I thought this was best all around gamer gets the prize. With the rules u came up with, Eli, ur just giving the prizes to the best super smash brothers players. Shouldn't Mario Kart Double Dash playing get credit in this? Think about it!

Giggity Giggity Giggity, Alllllll Right!

Black Shark Clan


Actually Noah you stand a pretty good chance at making it. I was looking at the records and you along with Tom, Nick11, and quite a few other people stand a really good shot. Since 32 out of 64ish people will advance from melee on to DD if you make one first place in Melee you should be in the elimination rounds and 2 2nd places will also get you in. It just breaks down that all you people like Tom and Moses that are decent at Melee but better at Kart stand a much better chance then someone good at Melee and bad at kart at winning a prize. Odds are Tom, Leinad, Moses and many other people that aren't amazing at melee will make it into the elimination rounds. Remember 1 in 2 will advance to the elimination rounds and there are about 10 people that a good a melee and horid at Kart so if you make it to kart the competion will be mixed.

Ok I'm leaving it at that redundent blob because I'm tried and not thinking well.

Really? 32 out of 64 can advance? I just hope I'm at least 32nd best at melee out of the 64.

Giggity Giggity Giggity, Alllllll Right!

Black Shark Clan


Well According to my logic you (Moses) will come in the mid to late 20's unless something goes terribly bad or amazingly good for you.


yea darksoul will counter his giant punch and then i will shine spike him giving him a 4th place :P. u have to take in account how many matches we will get(most likely 3). so 3 seconds will get u in a tie breaker cuz the maximum points u can get is 300 and the least so 30 and the mean of those is 180(u take the mean cuz 32/64 which is 1/2 of the ppl advance). second place it worth 60 points so u'll get in a tie breaker. i used this when i played double dash last year(and this year) i was like ok get 4th or above and ur in. my advice is just make sure u don't get 4th. if u do u have to cover it up with 2 firsts(this is melee).

[gtlogo:TMC]


Sravan you will almost certainly not be in a match with Darksoul and Moses. I asumed 2 matches so my math was right for my stituation.


Huh? The GC is about best all-around gamer, so why should you have to be good at both Melee and Double Dash to succeed?

Is that honestly your argument?

This is the format that I first mentioned months ago, to significant agreement. It's probably too late to talk me out of it now. You have to be good -- or lucky -- at both games to take home the big prizes. Single-player race is slow. We've got to thin the herd a bit before we move on to Kart, and if you'll remember, there was only one path to the Grand Championship finals last year. If Melee isn't your strength, I would be thankful that it's only a qualifier and not being used as single match elimination.

Besides, Moses, seeing as how you'll have to place well in several kart races in a row to make it into the surprise round, I would say that double dash 'gets credit'.


*Spits random liquid into computer screen*
WHAT!?!?
Eli, your going to qualify everyone who is 64th place or higher? Awsome, that means a shorther Wildcard match! More time for the gt.
*spits more random liquid*
Cool, I get to have one of those awsome (yet lousy) t-shirts?

Sorry Im like really hyper because I was at the Michagan Hockey game tonight.......(I was the guy working at the consessions) BTW, GO WOLVERINES WE WON!

Duck I read your post about that romance thing. I already knew most of that stuff, I just wanted to ask a random question: "Random Romance Querstion" yet, NOW SHES FOLLOWING ME!!!! She wont leave me alone. I mean she's hot but shes creeping me out.

i think this is such a tight layout. I am glad that the final thing isn't a race for clan cup cuz then i cant be like "SOB I GOT HIT WITH EVERYTHING AND MY CO-OP PARTNER (GIVES GALEN A DEATH STARE) COULDNT SHOOT ITEMS WELL!!!!" if i lose.
Sravan-shine theif is like "Team Ball" so it should be relatively easy for us since we understand that game type so well.
I also like how everything is seeded so that my clan is rewarded for doing sweet. And i really have trouble beating level nine peach for some reason...i can beat everyone else every time, but she is a pest.

yea i knew what shine theif was except the guy with the shine can use weapons. in halo he has to use the oddball. i guess u are right we will use our team work to win!

[gtlogo:TMC]


...Yeah, ok, I can see how running around in space suits shooting people is really the same as driving around on a cookie in fantasy-oriented Karts shooting eachother with the remains of dead turtles fighting over a Star. Yup, I can draw the parallels right here.

The round 4 team results weren't all in.
[gtplayer:139] Knight of the octothorn table
[gtlogo:VMC]


tom the idea is the same don't be a literalist. eli maybe we could do 2 ppl per tv when we do shine thief so it can be easier to do our stratagy and stuff. o yea and another BIG difference is that when the opposing team gets the ball in oddball their timer starts at 0 but in shine thief it starts like 5 seconds above the time it was before so if someone is 2 seconds left and they get hit by a star its all over.

[gtlogo:TMC]


It's not a cumulative time, though, It's who has it when the time runs out. Very different strategy there.

W/E man. Duck, y do u think I wont play against Darksoul or Sravan? Im just wondering. But it would be nice if I didn't play Sravan or Darksoul. If u guys look at my scores for SSBM single player, from 2nd to 4th round the worst I always got was 2nd place. I practically got 2nd place all the time.

Giggity Giggity Giggity, Alllllll Right!

Black Shark Clan


Well, I agree with Melee qualification and Dash elimination, for completely selfish reasons of course. I think that I have a decent shot at qualifying in Melee, but there's no way I could handle elimination rounds. Kart elimination rounds on the other hand, I have a shot at (if I actually go practice for the first time in months).

"Faulheit ist eine Tugend"
[gtlogo:VMC]


yea tom is right.

noah u got 2nd cuz either u played easy ppl or u stalled till it was 1v1 then u got pwned by the other guy. like when i played u 1v1 in october i PWNED u i had 2 lives remaining and i threw an item off the course to hit u and finish u off. also darksoul i think beat u 2 weeks ago. moral:DK is only good at 4 player FFA.

leind if its selfish reasons u might wanna not say it out loud cuz eli might change it(i doubt he would) but yea.
[gtlogo:TMC]


Well there are a few things I would like to address.

1. Noah the reason I don't think you, Sravan and Darksoul will be in any one melee match is because statistically it's about as slim a chance as winning the lottery.

2. All the regular people on this blog stand a good chance at qualifying for the elimination rounds because like the regular tournaments it breaks down to about 1/4 exceptionally good melee players 1/4 good melee players and then 1/2 of the people aren't very good at melee.

3. Yes, this situation plays down the importance of being great at melee and emphasizes Kart skills. Since 2/5 of the good melee players stink at Kart it will be weed out all the people that aren't competent at both games.

what time does the wild card start


Right after the Clan cup which should take one to one and a half hours.


theres no way i can win then cause i suk at mkdd :(


eli what about leaderboard single qualification? meng ur gonna be fine.
joe i can teach u some falco/fox combos if u want me to. also some stratagys.
[gtlogo:TMC]


So the top 32 from melee move on?
Will there be any 1v1 macthes?
I'll make if there are no of those.
at least melee is first and the toughest matches will be in mkdd

ok people time to guess the GAME OF THE YEAR according to spike tv's awards. if u watched them please don't answer this question i was shocked to find out the truth. also don't google it that takes the fun of guessing away.
the nominees are:
CALL OF DUTY 2
FEAR
GOD OF WAR
RESIDENT EVIL 4
and last but not least....WORLD OF WARCRAFT. guess which one it is. also most addicting game went to WoW. lol the pure pwnage episode 6....World of warcraft is a feeeeeeeeling, who cares about a social life.

World of Warcraft got 4 awards including best RPG and best pc game. King Kong got 3 but they were like best male preformance and best cast and best game based on a movie. resident evil got 2 including best graphics...isn't it on a gamecube?
[gtlogo:TMC]


The Gamecube graphical capabilities are only a sliver below that of the Xbox. Metroid Prime and RE4 are the two games that use that potential the best for sharp images. Neither the xbox nor Gamecube use the graphical power they have for more then a few games. I don't really see why people need all that power in the next generation if they aren't using the power they have now, especially since the non-HD TVs can only produce an image of a certain quality (which is way lower then the Xbox 360 and PS3 max. output). The more you try to pack in a game the longer it takes to make the game and the more potential for things like overheat and other problems to come up.

Ok that's my 2 cents for now.

[gtlogo:VMC]


meh, u didn't guess it though in that whole paragraph. i heard a PSP has better graphics than a gamecube.

[gtlogo:TMC]


Anyone who says that the PSP has better graphics than the Gamecube deserves to be shot out of their sheer stupidity. The PSP is a HANDHELD. There's no way it can match up to the graphics of any of the "current-gen" consoles.

Oh, btw Sravan, you made it too easy to guess which of those games won GOTY. You mentioned that Resident Evil 4 (The only real deserving game on that list) won two awards, yet you only mentioned one of them. That's a dead giveaway, my friend.

Finally, Spike TV shouldn't be hosting a Video Game Awards show. They have no idea what the heck they're talking about. I saw that too, and they nominated games that have been out for less than a month: Perfect Dark Zero, 50 Cent: Bulletproof (All copies of this game should be gathered and burned, btw), King Kong (which I'm not even sure if it's fully out yet, either). Way to go, Spike TV. You've totally screwed up the Video Game Awards for a third in a row.

Oh, in case any of you missed that, RESIDENT EVIL 4 WON GAME OF THE YEAR!!!!

King Kong is out but Spike is the frat boy game awards they only look at which games looked cool and masculine. For crying out loud World of Warcraft was released last year and won awards then.

at least they hosted game awards. no one else wanted to. they think critics like u guys will make them feel bad. this year wasen't that good for gaming though. not many famous games came out but the consules did. and its people's choice so they nominated popular games not any of those games that no one knows about and u guys say that they rule(u said star fox assult rocked and it did though). yea tom i was wondering if that gave it away but i was like o well. i can't belive resident evil 4 won though. world of warcraft or call of duty 2 were my pics. i'm suprised that some games like guild wars and battlefield 2 didn't get any spot light and they were good games and somewhat popular.

[gtlogo:TMC]


What's the point of public opinion game awards? They sever no purpose except to throw a big party and have a lot of celebrities walking around.


so that the people have a "say" in which games they like and to reward them by brining them celeberites. thats how most awards shows are...viewer choice...

Video Game Awards are stupid. They really don't affect the world on which video games they buy. I just finished beating the Harry Potter game. I'm going to mail it in and gamefly will send me a new one. It sucks that mail doesn't come on Sunday.

not all of us buys every single game that comes out ya no
so other ppl opinions do matter
i probably wont buy a game that got a 3 out of 10 :P


Yeah but the games they persent are wildly popular which means as long as your not huddeled under your rock you'll know someone who owns said game. There is nothing you can get out of a veiwer's choice poll that you can't get out of video game reveiws and people you know.

eli can us clan cup people have like a seperate room where we can chill during the wildcard tournament? or the ones that are allowed to commentate can chill in the commentary booth. is it 2 stock 2 minute or 2 stock 3 minute?

The Clan Cup is to be four-stock, five-minute; the other two events will be two-stock, two-minute.


Eli are the t-shirts the regular got books or do they actual have something to do with the GT?

In response to your earlier comment about game reviews, Duck, I'd like to announce that I live under a rock. Blue granite, I think; it shields me not only from the televised game reviews, but most personal accounts, as well.


Nope, they are a brand-new, totally awesome aadl-gt/axis shirt, with the aadl-gt NES controller on the front and the AXIS graffiti logo on the back. Pickwick's reading comprehesion matches his erudition; he is right about the Melee matches.


Yeah but Pickwick you have the warm glow of yellow cake to give you supernatural telepathic powers so you have no excuse.


The limit, Sravan, is actually 14 and 8 months that u can get ur permit.

My, you're up late!!
Thanks, Eli!!!
Duck, my mental powers do not stop merely at the basic art of telepathy. However, you are mistaken as to their source; the incident involving yellowcake uranium has given rise instead to a fierce and unaccountable dislike toward kippers.


I'm offficially 14 and 9 months old today.

happy birthday noah. well the first exams of the year are the worst right? i did very well on my spanish one(95-100) but english wasent as good. we had to place a poem in either the 6 catogories of romance or the 3 catagories of tragedy. lots of people said romance but me and this other kid said tragedy =O. but my teacher said as long as u gave a good explanation why it was whatever u said it was u are fine. i did good on all other parts but i really don't like essays. my hand was hurting so bad after it.

Wow, I don't really think anyone has really stated this on here (except Eli, but he doesn't count) that it's 5 freakin' days until the AADL-GT Season 2 Grand Championships, including the Clan Cup finale, the Wildcard Tournament and the Grand Championships. I just wanted to point that out to everybody.
