AADL-GT Round 3: Phoenix Flourish

AADL-GT Pad Logo

Just over a week ago (sorry guys), The AADL-GT Series continued with Round 3 events of the 2008 season. With only one more regular event to go before the Grand Championships in December, the time was ripe for players and clans to make a move in the standings. We saw some familiar faces at the top of the individual events, as DingDong, Hot_ArmS, and SwordSensei repeated their top 4 performance of the Smash singles event. As we turned to the Smash team event, AADL again went up against EVPL and PLCMC in internet play, which saw another victory for AADL despite breaking our unbeaten streak. On to Mario Kart Double Dash (for maybe the last time?) for Kart Singles, which went straight to an 8 player final from the pool qualifiers, with perennial favorites Dale W and Johninabox battling to an epic finish. After Team Kart closed the regular events of the day with a quick 4 match event, we moved onto the Clan Battle, with surprising results. Read on for more details.

SmashKart Championship Series 5.3: Smash Singles

Miraculously we had a perfect 64 players enter the Super Smash Brothers Brawl tournament, in 16 pools. After the dust settled, 11 of the 32 players moving on to head-to-head elimination were undefeated in pool play: Solon, Pwnerer, D-REX, SwordSensei, Pyromanic, Juggleguy, Hot_ArmS, Doomblaze, Johninabox, Notra, and limabean. Our round of 32 saw Notra, Juggleguy, Solon, and limabean's steak abruptly end in losses to DingDong, Chris R, Killa, and Dentrag respectively. Moving to the round of 16, we saw some of the best all around players advance as Johninabox, D-REX and MelancholyofSailorFullMoonTutuXD moved to the quarter finals. However, in what's becoming a Brawl trend, clan Asian Invasion members Hot_ArmS, DingDong, and SwordSensei all advanced to the Semis, joined by Clan Phoenix's Pyromaniac. DingDong prevailed over clan mate Hot_ArmS for the top spot, while Pyromanic took third place over round 2 champion SwordSensei.

SmashKart Championship Series 5.3: Smash Teams

Again, miraculously we had a perfect 32 teams for the Smash team event, but we had a bunch of ugly ties after the 2 qualifying rounds. Once we finally figured out who was advancing (remind me to keep track of winners, not losers next time) the top 16 teams moved on to elimination, with a good representation from the top clans. Our top 4 teams featured two teams from clan Asian Invasion and representatives from clan Phoenix and A Solo Special Ops. Asian Invasion proved again why they are the Smash Brothers clan to beat, with team "team" taking first place over clan mates team Asian Invasion.

SmashKart Championship Series 5.3: Kart Singles

With smash over, we transformed the room to Mario Kart Double Dash single player pools. 44 players competed with only 5 going a perfect 4 for 4 in first place finishes: limabean, monkeyman, Johninabox, D-REX, and Dale W. The top 8 players from pool play moved directly into a single race for the finals, which saw a ton of lead changes and Johninabox taking first place ahead of round 2 champion Dale W.

SmashKart Championship Series 5.3: Kart Teams

As time was winding down for the day, a quick team Kart event took place with 20 teams participating. The top 8 teams moved quickly on to the final match with MonkeysofDoom taking first over PrettyPrincesses, FusterCluck, and Alter Egos Unite! in the top 4.

After the bonus points were awarded for all the regular events, the Clan Standings for the day were as follows:

Asian Invasion 7130
We're Better Than Special Ops 6730
A Solo Special Ops 5680
The Whole Famn Damily 5110
Phoenix 4350
Anonymous 2540
Tires Don Exits 1670

It should be noted that clan Asian Invasion took top score for the day, even though they left after Smash competition. That left a spot open in the clan battle for clan Phoenix, who took advantage of the situation. Clans A Solo Special Ops and We're Better Than Special Ops were eliminated in Smash Brothers and Mario Kart events, which left clan Phoenix to face The Whole Famn Damily in the surprise game of Bomberman. With time running out, Phoenix arose and claimed top Clan in round 3.

Round 4 and the final regular event of the 2008 AADL-GT season takes place downtown on Saturday, November 29 at noon. Be there or be bored somewhere else.

1.Yes to mario kart wii, while it may be a worse game, brawl is worse than melee and we still play it, also for the clan fianls the team mode will be more effeciant seeing as u can have 12 ppl per race and we have clans of 6
2.Too make a long story short, I did something stupid and my new brawl code is 4940-8634-7710
3.i need every1's codes again
4.yasha even with the poits ur clan will be 5000 points behind julian's XD, the title is fail because they didnt get anywhaere they went from 5th-5th lol
5. yasha ur internet sux hardcore, ull never get better playing with that laggy trash,
6. only like 2 ppl on here who dont all ready do gamebattles will get good from gamebattles(simply because u have no potential, and/or ur way too behind on metagames)
7. u guys post so much and yet hardly anything gets said, in fact this post has ore substantial info in it then like the last 100 posts
8.there is no 8
9. XD u guys just wasted time reading the last two points >:3 muahahahaha(now u know how i feel XD)

I have plans chi chi like I said dont under estimate the phoenix but my plans were based upon those 4000 points which seem to be absent. And I changed connections so brawl is a lot better onilne for me. 2 dont hate on the title because of all that trash you guys talked about phoenix we will be in the top four clans I will promise you that.

Like I say Dont under estimate the phoenix.


yasha, did u ask the person about the smash club...cpu's are really boring...and the friends that lives close to me are noobs

and matt, did you tell stephen that you can beat him after he beat you...lol

not yet. I will soon just gotta find sometime. This week is really busy for me I have 2 essays a quiz and a test, midterms and 2 papers to write.


u guys realize they'll have every clan's name up there atleast once...


no mariokart wii, no teams makes the game not good.

and more brawl is just stupid.


I can beat steven, it's just that i was tired of playing fd for singles. If it were another stage i could've beat him, except meta knight rapes snake. And jacob, you're addicted to brawl.


actually snake beats meta...


How.


metaknight dies like a little b**** vs him


all depends on the snake player.


lol, matt, stephen said he can 2-3 stock you...he said he messed up...
and no johns

yea especially since your johns are wrong lol


Why on earth would I want to know what characters beat other characters in a video game? I don't want to offend certain people (*cough* jacob *cough*), but people play this game too much.


i didn't even play any today...right after school i went to barnes and nobles.....(that's why i posted late)
and you would want to know it on earth because I don't think you would want to know it in a different planet...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nobody can handle the brokeness of double meta knight
Holder of the 15000th comment


none of the clan points are added yet, and when it does the only thing thats gonna be different is asian invasion being bumped down to 3rd or 4th, clan pheonix would still be nowhere close to 4th place

not hating, just saying the truth

Wait, we are allowed to use hands? Because feet are easier cause your legs can move a lot faster than your hands.

its a secret. otherwise the plan wouldnt work


does clan standings even matter, I see no point u don't win any $


yea, we should have a prize for it...lol....the prize was probably 4000 points though
but, that means we win prizes in every match we do, so that's probably not a prize...

clan standings kinda matter, it gives you a better seed for the clan championships so you get a bye and stuff.........a good seed for asian invasion is likeable so we can bypass the mario kart round since we suck at it :P

and ding, whoever wins the clan championships, each member of the clan (that are present) during the clan championships gets 1 game worth $50 so if you dont like the game you can return it for store credt- at least thats what it was last year

I honestly don't get it, but i'm guessing it has something to do with portrayls of asians? Right?
Anyway, is asian invasion primarily a brawl clan? And who is the best at kart in A.I., cause i heard you guys weren't good in kart.
Also, how many people are you and hot_arms have in mind? cause how many squinty asians are at the tournament?

Hey, can i be put down on the list of people too, or is it by your guys' opinions?
The word 'broken' to describe a char. doesn't make much sense. Doesn't the word broken mean to not work well? Meta knight works extremely well if i recall.
