Super Smash Double Dash: Preseason Tournament Next Sunday!

AADL-GT: Ann Arbor District Library Game Tournaments

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:

Banned Stages
Hyrule Temple
Rainbow Cruise
Big Blue
Icicle Mountain
Poke Floats
Flat Zone

Banned Items
Heart Container
Maxim Tomato
Starman
Cloaking Device
Bob-Omb

Single-player finals will be seeded 1v1.

Here's the full season schedule. Friday night tournaments are still in development (*cough GUITAR HERO cough*).

Excellent post! =P

I need a partner for 2 v 2 smash, anyone interested? ;)

EDIT: FIRST POST!

EDIT 2: BTW, are the 2v2 gonna have friendly fire on?


sounds good i guess my lack of patience have finially paid off. How many clans will get into clan cup and as well how many non-event qualified in a previous event will be able to make the GC. PRIZES SOUND BEYOND SWEET. I guess big raise in prize funding. Pre-season will have those big prizes amonut as well. $360 dollars given away in the basement of the library and free food.
A few questions for commentarey. 1. Are you looking for one play by play and one color commentarey person in the booth or just 2 color commentaries becuase i could do either. Also can i request a specfic event to commentate. I'd prefer single player Kart because i have a good deal of knowledge in Kart and no lots of people skills and accomplishments in kart especially since i was at most of season 1. Also how will it be run like 2 people commentating and one back up if they have 2 play a match.
Again prizes sound awesome.
Scoring for regular events looks good a think there might just be little too much for winning an event but that is the big goal so we will see how that works out.
Recruitment bonuses look good except i recruited most of my friends last year. Good call they have to be in your clan. Girl idea is fair and a good step to try to diversify the group of people there since it is a male dominated sport(and yes i called it a sport)
How is the Mariokart gonna be run like it always have. Again i will push the idea especially for Kart to not have too much single elimniation because such prizes are at stack and there is a great deal of luck i know u want people who aren't as good to have a chance but in MarioKart i think too many "lukcy" people are advancing and the more skilled are being left out of later rounds. Maybe 2 accumlative point rounds ex. Quals top 32 move on 2 more races each top 16 move on than elimniate bottom 4 or something. Your tourtament jsut my ideas :).
2 more comments are you going to amke people display their short nickname for melee or at least i the featured m atch for commentareys sake. Also for a "featured match" in melee just have the commentators briefly look over a match with the best talent and most people on leader board and things like that.
Are the people you play in the match completley random or based on time you register? Also ill get to this more later but is there anyway you control a way so 2 people cant be in the same game in an event?

Well first I would like to start with an evil laugh. *Evil laugh* As the Vaccinated Monks have 2 girls. *More Evil laughter* Ok I'm done.

Bad driver as for your commentator questions, the commentators use the brackets and player positions to determine who is who. The commentators are able to choose which match is followed thanks to Diego.

"Who's on first."

Thanks Duck. I notice team kart started at 3:30 are we going to allow a few more races/battles for the events. Also when does the library close on sunday i know it is 6 on saturday? the clan battle is only going to take half an hour right.
For the clan battle will only the top 4 high scores be qualified for the kart,melee and unknown game at the end? Also will it be run liike an elimniation bottom clan at kart is knocked out bottom clan i nmelee is knocked out than top 2 clans battle in mystery game?
Eli when you say bonus per GIRL in your clan it doesn't have to be a new girl?

summerreading2


such a great post...yet still so many unanswered questions :(


Bad Driver how can you call video games a sport


Mdiget i dont think FF will be on for team melee. These tourtaments are a competive atmapshere with prizes for top competiors and some physical activity. Therefore in my opinon i would consider it a sport or maybe just half of a sport and half pizza.

the dates above disagree with the axis catalog which one is right?


hmmmm... new bonuses, this means 1500 pts if I get a completely new clan, which I was already thinking about (sorry Derek, John, and Alex)

WE NEED HALO TOURNAMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
or U.T...

How do you host images on AADL??


Eli i want to be on arjan (Doomblaze)'s team but there are 2 so which one is the right one?


oh that reminds me, Arjun was bragging to me about his melee skillz, i hope to play him =P


matt thats ok me john and alex combined with my brothers clan


Ryan which everyone he uses would be the right one. I dont think Eli would know check which one has a lot of aadl-Gt tourtaments and one might have an open smash tourney or something.
Bro's and co's is looking like a force to be reckenoed with should be a fun season. For you rimage you want ballonster e-mail it to eli and he will put it on.
See you guys sunday

What physical activity Bad Driver you and I both know ther is absolutely no physical activity at all. Plus to top it off they stuff us with pizza, goldfish, pretzels and pop to make us lazy and fat. Reading? I don't think so. Who actually would read when you could play game cube against other competiters? In my opinion something can not be a sport without athletes. Even golfers have srong legs, arms and upper body. In a real sport it is vital to be physically fit and in good shape to keep up with the compitition. In video games a fat tub of goo could still win the finals.

Well a fat person would have fat fingers, thus eliminating the ability to move your fingers fast enough

But seriously, your fingers have to be physically fit to play video games =P


i have a question: since derek wasn't really here last season or even in our clan, does he count as a new member if he is in our clan this season?

Completely OT question.. didn't know where to post it.

Which version of DDR has the most J-pop in it?

Someone in Chelsea would like to know.


I'm pretty sure DDR:Konamix (PS1) has the most j-pop, although I'm not sure.


Wow you typed that all up when you were right next to me. Mdiget has a good point. I will re phase it. A competive event. 4 days and 21 hours and 30 minutes till preseason.
How many people were at last years pre-season anyone know?

"Like a sasquach"


I'm surprised to see how large the prizes have grown. This season looks to be very promising, but I'm still left with questions as to what exactly the clan matches will consist of at each tournament.

Also how do I go about adding members to my clan and I would also like to remove someone from the clan.

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


I think im good, i beat ownerer 5 or 6 times so meh...

Arjun we're gonna play at the preseason like right when we get there, k?


Welcome new players... And don't worry if you don't have a teammate for this weekend, there will be plenty of players looking for teammates. John, you've got to choose 1 player name, and it would be better if a set of two people only had one team name. If you switch partners, you can change your team name.

I will be taking clan signups as time allowed, and the clan season will begin at round 1 with clan battle details to come. Bad Driver's got the right idea, though we may have more than 4 clans in a clan battle. And the library closes at 6 on Sundays too.

Videogames are definitely competitive. Some people would say that's all it takes to call something a 'sport' (but I'm not one of them). Super Smash & Double Dash don't involve much athleticism... but I think you can all agree these tournaments aren't about sitting around. DDR is another story.

Joe: The legendary Troublemonkey Derek does NOT count as a new player. And to clear it up, you get 501 points for a new player OR 1000 points for a Girl in your clan. You don't get 1501 points if it's a new girl. =) Nice try, though.

No bonuses for cross dressers or indians (unless they are new, or a girl). Or Galens. =)

Doomblaze, yes, in Melee, a First and a Third is better than two seconds. That's intentional.

Any other questions? See you guys in scant hours!


TP2 you can have clan tryouts (BTW this is momkeyman on my brothers account)


Yea, we'll play and see who wins. Btw, its arjan. TP2, clan tryouts r dumb, dont listin 2 monkeyman u should just vote and piss some people off. With luck, we can boot semourbutts out of our clan cuz he just plain suks. wut i really dont understand is y hyrule is banned when happy-fun-cloud yoshi land isnt, since u can float on the cloud 2 the far right and stay alive forever.
