Super Smash Double Dash: Preseason Tournament Next Sunday!
It's been a long, long, off-season, but the wait is almost over. The AADL-GT Super Smash Double Dash Championship Series returns with our PRESEASON EVENT next SUNDAY, July 23rd, from Noon-5 PM at the Downtown Library. Registration is now open! This year, we've got several changes to the system planned, the biggest of which being MORE PRIZES! Each Gamecube Tournament will consist of 4 events: Super Smash Bros Free-For-All, Super Smash Bros. Team Battle, Mario Kart Single-Player Race, and Mario Kart Coop Team Race. The top 3 finishers from each event will take home giftcard prizes: $40 for 1st, $30 for 2nd, and $20 for 3rd. For Team Events, the teams will split that prize (you'll each get your own giftcard). So, if you manage to win all 4 events, you could walk home with $120 just from a single tournament!
As always, winning any single event qualifies you for the Grand Championship in december, where you'll have your shot at winning a DS, an iPod, or (hopefully) a BRAND-NEW NINTENDO WII! Read on for details about the the upcoming season...
Clans this season will consist of a set roster of 6 players. Each tournament, the 4 highest total scores in your clan will count towards your season tally and determine the highest-scoring clans of the day. Those top clans will advance to a monthly Clan Battle, held immediately after the 4 SSDD events.
Battling clans will face off in a team mario kart match, a team super smash match, and a game of my choosing. There's no prizes at stake for the regular season Clan Battles, but the december Grand Championships will again include the clan cup, featuring a clan-appropriate prize for the clan that emerges victorious from the as-yet-unknown challenges. Sunday's preseason tournament will be a great opportunity to form your clan and scope out new members, as there will be no clan play or scoring at the preseason event.
Super Smash format will be 2-stock, 3:00 free for all, with the following bans:
Single-player finals will be seeded 1v1.
Here's the full season schedule. Friday night tournaments are still in development (*cough GUITAR HERO cough*).
