AADL-GT Season Opener: This Saturday!

AADL-GT: Ann Arbor District Library Game Tournaments

This weekend marks the start of the 2nd AADL-GT Tournament Season for grades 6-12, with the opener starting at Noon Saturday, 8/20/2005, at the Downtown Library. This event will be broadcast LIVE on Comcast channel 18, from Noon-5 PM.

Because the event will be televised, you will need to bring this release form, signed by your parent or guardian, or you won't be able to play! Don't forget it! If you participated in last season's Grand Championships and already turned in a release form, you don't need to do it again.

AADL-GT Season 2 will include single-player and team events in Mario Kart: Double Dash race mode, and Super Smash Brothers 2-stock battle. The prize round will be a mystery game, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize round winners take home $70, $50, and $30 giftcards respectively.

Registration for this event will open Wednesday Night, 8/17/2005. You will be able to register your handle, sign up your teams, and create your clans.

Creating a clan will involve entering the four nicknames of your 4 primary clan members. Clans must have exactly 4 primary members. At each tournament, for your clan to score points, you must roster exactly 4 players, and at least 1 of those 4 must be a primary clan member. You can get subs to fill out the other spots. Subs can only be primaries of other clans if their clan is not rostering at that tournament. While it's in your best interest to figure out who your subs will be ahead of time, there will be time at the beginning of the event to come up with clan subs.

Bonuses will be awarded to clans for recruiting players that didn't play last season. These bonuses will be applied AFTER each tournament is over, and won't be included when determining the clan winner of each tournament.

If you have a clan logo, email it to axis@aadl.org, and I will upload it for you after your clan has registered.

Any questions? Now's the time. Hope you've been practicing, the competition is going to be intense.

i know its sad but i was too lazy to too look for anything like a library i just went to borders 3 times a week


You know I much more concerned about swimming with dolphins then swimming with Sharks. Dolphins will kill each other including young for almost nothing, sharks just kill to eat and their mouths are recessed so they can't bite well.

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


no offense but i do take offennse now im emontionly scarred for life


but duck dolphins are the collest species on the planet because they prove that 7 + 7 = 15 by making sharks spontaneosly combust


I would have to say that I am greatly opposed to forcing people to be on a melee team with someone who they played co-op MK with. I know that might make it easier, but the guy I want to have on my melee team has never even played mario kart and the guy I want on my mario kart team isn't as good at melee as the other guy.

P.S. I can't figure out how to put my logo on. I opened image assist and I said insert image, but it's not working.


Eli, what do I do about signing up for registry, do I register my clan members that can make it 2 this saturday or can I sign them in anyway, because Leo(new axis name:Santa) can't make it this saturday and Im not sure about Teddy because I have not been able 2 reach him for a week, so he must be on vacation, and I don't know when he is coming back. Nick's twin, Adam will replace Leo and most likely Omid says he can be on my team, he most likely will replace Teddy. Let me show u what I mean, Eli.

Roster (originally 4 this saturday):
1. Black Shark
2. Santa (Leo) (Can't come)
3. Nick
4. Teddy (???)

Roster (projected 4 this saturday):
1. Black Shark
2. Nick
3. Teddy (???) or Omid if Teddy doesn't come back on time
4. Adam

Who Should I register? Eli, answer me now!

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


eli i have six names and I cant decied which 1 to use so can i use the name Flare/Mr.chockums/blitz/blitzer/chico/chok-dawg plz


I like Blitzer, It reminds me of Madden.

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


stick with flare chiokee. black shark the directions will come when it is time to pre register which is tommarow. eli will explain everything in the directions. tp2 to put ur image on ur post u click the add image sign which a little plus sign below the box where u type ur comments. u scroll down till u find turtle clan logo,click on it and say insert image. sometimes the layout of your post will be messed up so press preview comment to see what it looks like. i usually put the cursor after my last word then add your image. BTW ur logo is cool. we have more then 100 posts and its only been a little bit over a day how amazing. dolphins r still smarter then sharks.

but sravan then my other names wont get credit

"chioke wept"


OK! I'LL ANSWER YOU NOW!

Creating and rostering a clan are two different things. When you create a Clan, you specify exactly 4 primary members. Whether or not these people will be at any particular tournament is irrelevant; they are your primary members, and if they are present at the clan cup and your clan wins, they get the prize. So, you'll create your clan primaries, but you won't submit your roster for a tournament until checkin the day of the tournament, to allow for last-minute cancellations, subs, etc. So, it's up to you to decide who your Clan primaries are. Does that help?

And, TP2, I've decided that teams won't be locked, so you can swap pairings in your clan for the team events, but remember that you can only roster exactly 4 players for your clan at a tournament, so specialists will still have to play for the clan on their weaker game.

Also, to insert your logo, after I've uploaded it, click the image assist icon (with the green plus) when you're posting, choose your image, then scroll down in the bottom window and choose 'insert image'. That will give you a tag in your comment that calls the image. Put that tag at the bottom of your post, and you're all set.

but eli what about my question?

OK then. Thanx Eli. Ur delays make me so crazy!

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


Um, no, Mr. Indecisive Chokums, you need a shorter nickname. Besides, I've already articulated my preference for the sublime handle of 'Mr. Chokums'. Very distinctive, and a little scary. Just right.


ok thank you

"i am indisive"


"Ur delays make me so crazy?" Wow, I thought 'Answer me NOW' was a new nadir of ingratiousness, but you've managed to top yourself. =) You do know that AADL-GT is only about 5% of my job, right guys? We've got, like, this library thing that we do too. Capisce?

By the way, let's stick to our own clan logos, please. We hope to have automatic clan logos eventually, but not quite yet.


O, well sorry

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


8 posts in 15 minutes thats a new record. except when a new blog comes out. noah u have to learn to be more patient. eli as i said before i think we should not let newcomers commentate not to be sterio type but us vetrans know more about the games and players and AADL-GT in general. so anyway see u on saturday.

well i know where duck found out his tiers for melee characters at this URL. http://smashboards.com/archive/index.php/t-50171.html. it seems that is also basically the ranking of the characters so sheik is 1st and fox is 2nd and marth is 3rd and peach is 4th etc.

Wow, we've had over 1000 comments posted to the new website in just over 6 weeks. And not only did Sravan make the 1000th comment, he was also responsible for posting 281 of those 1000 comments.

Let's all give Sravan a big hand for his dedication and perseverance. =)


Congratulations 2 your sucess Sravan. How many posts have I made out of 1000?

Black Shark Clan

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


Only 83 posts for you, Black Shark. I've actually posted the 2nd most comments myself, at 87, but, you know, this is my job. =)

Hey Eli, you said that one day you were gonna get clan logos to automatically appear, when will that be complete?

Have we ever had a poll work Sravan. You asking for people to say yes or no isn't going to get a large response. Also I say No to 1v1.

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


well the blog is about making axis better for everyone and the way to do that is to get everyone's opinion thats y i did a poll.

"You know how people say we only use 10% of our brains i think we only use 10% of our hearts"

yes to 1v1


i agree with sravan we should do 1v1 thats 3-1


You know Eli already said this tournament will not have 1v1. So save it for after the tournament when everyone is back from band camp.

duck you forgot the second set of apostrophies on youre quote

"step 1: find you're cousin"
"step 2: get you're cousin in the cannon"
"step 3: find another cousin"


hahahahaha how wrong u are duck. eli personally told me if we have time then we will do 1v1 and he also said that we will most likely have time because he took all the bugs out of the system. galen said for 1v1 too so 4-1. flare ho wdo u think of all these quotes u have a different quote each time u post.

I pick quotes off my magic cards

"some days its better to stay inside"


o ok. another poll. if we have a LOT of time and since we ARE doing 1v1, do u guys think we should do best 2/3 for the srmis and 3/5 for the finals. or we could just do 2/3 for the finals because in 2 stock if u make one mistake u are dare i say it screwed. i think we should also because of the stages u might not get "your stage" and u can get another one in a 2/3 match. i say yes so 1-yes 0-no. this is only if we have enough time that is...

I don't think we will have the time.

"The elders tell of a young ball much like you. He bounced three meters in the air. Then he bounced 1.8 meters in the air. Then he bounced FOUR meters in the air. Do I make myself clear?"


duck you are such a realist you should be an optimist instead


lol flare. then we should only do 2/3 in the finals only. or 3/5 in the finals and 2/3 in the 3rd place match. eli which 1 do u want??JOE WHERE ARE U???????????????????

Well, you guys are entitled to your opinions, of course, but as you know, it's my decision, and I will make it on the fly depending on how things are going. I do like the idea of 1v1 finals, because they're more intense and a better judge of skill, but we will not be doing 2/3 or 3/5 melee matches 1 match, that's it. Cutthroat!


but thats un fair to the lucky not pansys like some people who make it into the finals by fightings n00bs like uhh sravan

"just kiding sravan"


Stop changing the rules right before the tournament. It is very annoying.

"The elders tell of a young ball much like you. He bounced three meters in the air. Then he bounced 1.8 meters in the air. Then he bounced FOUR meters in the air. Do I make myself clear?"


why is every1 being sooooo talkitive today?

"Tie goes to the winner"


duck we were supposed to do 1v1 anyway. lol i did play noobs to get in the finals except for badger and of course u duck. we should at least do the finals 2/3 if we have time. eli can u make a list of all the ppl who want to commentate so we dont get into huge arguments in the tournaments. the ppl i know so far are me,duck,galen,black shark, and ugo. i think 5 is a good number to have total commentators or maybe 6. but its your tournament as u said.

hey eli i liked that music that u had at the december finals last year and i was thinking of instead of listening to corney mario kart music u can play one of those tunes during a race heck even a song. its just a suggestion. duck is so scared to insult me on this blog so he does it on another haha.
