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.

lol, i'm not sure...but, I think if they did 1v1 only it would be better. with no items...banned stages...and best out of 3...

and it's all a***...so we should have the tournament rules from the all a*** tournaments

My plan for phoenix to get in 4th place. I think me and nick would rock aadl doubles with double falco.


Also who ever updates the points can you add the 4000 to phoenix??


Also would you guys go to a tournament called Brawling for charity? I want to set something like that up. Half or 60% of our entry fee would go to charity and people can donate to w.e. I just gotta find a place to donate to and a place to have this and get the word out.


lol, did you see funzo's and notra's double falco...probably not a good idea...but, they were facing asian invasion, so....idk....lol

i might go to that tournament...
