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.

Comments

i didnt read ugo's post cuz it was at the same time as mine. ugo galen is better than u and u have to admit it. john durski is not that good he uses kirby for gods sake. galen only barely lost to him because the course was infinate glacier. balla isnt that good either but mini blin is pretty good. duck can not beat either me,flare,galen, or mini blin. u didnt even make the top 16. u can stay in denial if u want.

1 v. 1 matches require a lot more skill than 4 player free-for-alls. I have been playing a lot of matches with 4 humans and I find that the matches can move very slowly because, of hiding.
By The Way I can't get the clan symbol to work to work. Has anyone ever used it on a mac.


LMAO TP2 U HAVE A MAC. I THOUGHT ONLY CHICKS HAD MACS. but anyway i dont know but i'm glad u like 1v1. r u coming to the august tournament?

Macs are better I have never heard of any mac getting viruses. Not to mention that at E3 X-Box 360 software was being shown off using the power of macs. Not only does my family own 3 macs I also own a few dozen shares of apple stock. One more thing apple is switching to intel chips which will make macs even more powerful.
By the way I do own a PC, but I've never connected it to the internet in my life. I only use it for games.
For those of you who care macs come with a built in c++ compiler I think. (I'm not positive it comes with the mac, but I have it on two of my family's macs.) By the way if you haven't noticed they use mac laptops at the tournament.
I'm coming to the August tournament. I would have to say that I just started practicing on Monday. I don't have high hopes for MK, but I think I'll fare well in melee. I've gotten a lot better since you last played me Sravan.
"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


i look forward to playing u tp2. u won mario kart last year. fine macs are better...sometimes

TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT

I won't tell you what it means. Only TC members know (and Eli) (Eli please don't tell).

I will give you a few hint it probably will not make grammatical sense. Also it is not a sentence. Finally look it up at a translator.

If you can't figure out what TORTURIS means I am ashamed of you.


ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh torturis is turtle, right? Or turtoise

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


not exactly

looks like no reg tonight.

by the way I had some very successful practice tonight, but most of you probably don't care.

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


I know I'm not the best at Melee but I'm not one of the melee powerhouses in my clan. Last time I played melee with my clanmates I got by butt kicked.

That Latin phase doesn't make sense the closest I got was
"turtle advance/March/Go spoils/booty" of coarse my translation might be off.

"Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"-Fry


was this some kind of joke eli, I have been waiting for 3 straight hours!

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


this is taking too long

"There is an evil monkey in my closet"


lol duck futurama. eli this is taking too long.

WOW how the heck did this much happen in like four days, I feel lost.
<*_*>


Well since sravan posts like mouse there tends to be many conversations as long as other people are here.

"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?"


yup

Duck are you talking about my mouse?


Yes she has 800 post on Dx.

"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?"


I know during finals she totally took away my high score, and who else on here would know her?
Now I'm like third, and the site, died over the summer, I hope that it will come a live when school starts


muffincat, stop posting on this topic. There is no need 2.

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


She can post wherever she wants. just because you guys post on the newest one doesn't require everyone to post there.

"Everyone's always in favour of saving Hitler's brain. But when you put it in the body of a great white shark, ooohh! Suddenly you've gone too far!"


Black Shark, a post remains open for comments for 60 days after being posted. During that time, anyone can post on it. It's not a secret. Especially since, in this case, a discussion was actually happening. Relax!

Let me lay it out a bit more clearly.

I, ELI, KING OF ALL AXISNESS, DO HEREBY HEARTILY ENDORSE THE PRACTICE OF COMMENTING ON POSTS THAT ARE OPEN FOR COMMENTS, EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT THE NEWEST POST IN A PARTICULAR SECTION. YES. IT IS ALL GOOD.

Can you tell I've been playing Katamari tonight? You may now return to your normally scheduled petty bickering, already in progress. =)


Oh so it's timed. Now what is the limit on editing comments? My first comments were able to be edited until the blog closed but my new ones only last a little while.

"Everyone's always in favour of saving Hitler's brain. But when you put it in the body of a great white shark, ooohh! Suddenly you've gone too far!"


That's a good question, duck, I'm not sure. I can edit any comment... I think you can only edit the last comment you made. I'll check on that.


yeah king eli and duke duck


does any1 know the song and artist of this line

"Simple and clean is the way that you're making me fell tonight it's to let it go."


Hikaru Uktada. It's the song from the opening cinema of Kingdom Hearts.

I will publicly admit to having it on my iPod.


yeah oh hey eli but the name of the song is simple and clean but basicly yeah
