GT Preseason Weekend Results

AADL-GT: Videogame tournaments from the Ann Arbor District Library

The preseason is behind us now, and after some amazing matches, the glory of 32 players playing super smash brothers at the same time, and the splendor of a crabby eli trying to sort out glitches with pencil & paper, we now begin the long wait until Round 1, which is Saturday, August 20th, from Noon - 5:00. First, the tournament results.

The single player kart event featured some intense competition, but ended with four seasoned veterans - Duck, Miniblin, Sravan, and Galen - on top. We then moved on to the Co-op team kart event, where the Troublemonkeys, this time represented by Troublemonkey Clan members Sravan and Galen were victorious, along with new teams Masked Monkeys, JonnyBean, and the n00bz.

Single player Super Smash Brothers: Melee saw the increasingly unbeatable Sravan again among the top four finishers, along with season 1 4th place finisher John Durski, and newcomers Badger and Tofu.

The Team Melee Event, with the troublemonkeys stepping aside to save time, found many newcomers earning the first trips to the surprize round, with emerging contenders the n00bz, the Gamers, the Badgers, and the Tridents winning the event.

We had 17 players qualify for the Surprize Round, and our mystery game this month was Madden 05 Two-minute drill. When the dust cleared, newcomer Balla walked away with the $50 giftcard first prize, beating out returning player and button-masher Omid, who took home the $40 second prize. Rookies tournament graduate LimaBean proved he can play with the veterans, beating out Galen for the $30 third prize.

A great time was had by all, much pizza was eaten, and we found out where our software needs to improve for the regular season. Stay tuned for a detailed posting about the final clan scoring system this week, and watch for preregistration the week of the event.

Too bad I couldn't be there. I would have to say that I'm upset with the regulars who let new comers take all the money.

By the way who got first in the Mario Kart.


in baby park which was the final course, galen got 1st, duck got 2nd, i got 3rd, and miniblin got 4th. yea too bad the newcomers took the money. this should have counted for clan points.

Our clan name would be the headline. oh yeah and me and derek will have a 90% chance of making the august tourney. and for clarification, is the final(prize) round the suprise round? oh yeah and son of a &$*@# &^%^^( $%%$%% #$#$ % #$^ ! %^!?!!!!

GODDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!


i wasent really being serious and i wanted mario(balla) to kill my opponent cuz i know he would get a high score so i let alex get 23500points. joe mario kart is easy the only thing that is hard there is melee. practice melee and know how to avoid pansees and sometimes be a pansee urself. yes the final round is the suprise round where u get to win the prizes. 90% chance is good so i will see u there. i need to know which character do u and derek use for melee. i heard ppl had a hard time beating john durski. is it cuz when he uses kirby he sux u up and does a kamakazee or he avoids danger and pansees a lot.

I know, it was so stupid. John was using kirby on icicle mountain. It was sudden death and the bombs were dropping, I was out there dodging the bombs here and there. John was sitting in the corner doing nothing. I finally get near him and he does a running atack on me and KOs me.


o thats BS. he still lost to ugo's team. but maybe that was because of his brother.


eli can u tell me the exact dates of all the tournaments in the fall leading to december.


the mystery game round will not count toward clan points right?


ok so lets see there is the trouble monkey clan, vaccinated monks, jlgenials' clan, turtle clan, ugo's clan, miniblin's clan, flar's clan, omid's clan and are there any that i missed. all the newcomers will probably make clans


I just remembered people that were not at the pre-season don't know the clan prizes.


Who got the most points in 2 minute drill and how many points did they get?

And secondly, read my email to find out which characters derek and i use.

we used madden scoring like getting fumbles and touchdowns and interceptions etc. joe the clan prize is an ipod shuffle for each clan member. this following quote was told to me by my 6th grade teacher who now lives a retired life up north but he read it from a famous book.

"It's our choices, Harry that show us who we truly are, far more than our abbilities"-Dumbldore, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets


will there be a 2nd prize for the clan cup?


NO.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"


you should get the extended warranty for the prizes.

also galen and sravan, what will you guys call your co-op team in august since derek and i will use the troublemonkey team name?

and for my final thought, since my brithday is in august, will there be gushers at the tournament? maybe some gatorade? huh? yeah? say aug8 in your post if you agree.

if we do the clan cup on a different day then tp2 can come to it like the friday before. there better not be a wild card for the clan cup.


There wasn't going be a wildcard for the clan cup but now that you brought it up Eli might just do one. I don't think Eli will like your 2nd name and I don't want to be commentating on anyone with that kind of a name.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"


lol i just got it! mike rotch. haha. "Mike Rotch just got blown up by a master shell!" "Oh no Mike Rotch just got pelted with a shell" "Mike Rotch just dropped its giant bananna on the road."


dont worry there wont be a clan cup wildcard. eli let us use mike rotch in one of the DDR tournaments where i orginized a melee tournament.


its from a simpsons episode. u know how bart makes prank phone calls to Moe's bar.


Yeah, but that wasn't televised and do you really want to be know to your future teachers as half of Mike Rotch.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"


lol! So Joe, you have contacted Derek and told him to practrice fo rthe upcoming season right? Also me and sravan discussed our name, will it be ok if we use Trouble Monkeys2?

Who else watches public access.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

Hey Eli do i get bonus points for my Clan because i brought Balla...which his real name is Mario Texierra..he's on my soccer team..


Yup, if you bring a new player, you get a bonus. So your clan will get a bonus for bringing Balla, and Sravan's clan will get a bonus for bringing you.
