AADL-GT Round 1: Registration Now Open

Our new registration is system is ready to go! Here's how it works.

First, login to aadl.org if you're not already logged in. If you don't already have an account, you should register for an account first, as an aadl.org account is required to preregister for tournaments, and to track your stats later!

Once you're logged in, just go to http://www.aadl.org/aadlgt. You can first set up your player info, including your full name, nickname, age group, and short 4-character version of your nickname for Super Smash Brothers.

You'll see the upcoming events listed on that page. Just click register below the ones you want to register for, and POOF, you are preregistered for that event. Know that you still have to check in when your arrive so that we know you're there.

To register for a team event, you'll see a link to create your team. Enter your team name, and choose your partner from the list of registered players. That means you won't be able to preregister your team unless both players have already registered for a single-player event. So get both teammates registered, then one of you register your team. You can create different teams for each event.

UPDATE: Clan registration is working now too. If all your Clan primaries are registered for an event, you can create your clan. Email me at axis@aadl.org your clan logo, and I'll upload it.

I'm pretty much not screwed because I finally got omid 2 join my clan and the twins, Nick and Adam can most likely come. If those 2 don't come, then im screwed, not only screwed, but ****ed up 2. Truffle Shuffle.

i dont understand whats the problem with a release form. it just means that u are responsable for your own actions like if u start cursing while commentating that is your fault. if parents cant sign it then that means they need to go to counceling or something because they dont turst their kids.... yay i broke my sleep cycle in ur face duck.

Can you have a sub for the clan cup because, my brother and I will probably not be able to attend. You said earlier that the sub system was to not punish people for having previous commitments. I don't think it is fiar to the other members of my clan to not be able to compete.

BTW Sravan that's from Shakespeare's A midsummer's night dream. At least that's what my sister says.


Eli Please Unregister Me I Won't Be At The First Tournament.


yea ur right tp2. if u are not at the december tournament then u dont get the prize ur sub does thats the bad thing so it will be like u were a sub for the rest of the season. u can ask the sub to give u the ipod but i doubt he will give it to u. we had to read that shakespeare play last year and this year we have to read macbeth ahhhhhhhh.

Subs can play for a leading clan at the clan cup, but, as Sravan says, it's the players who play for the winning clan at the clan cup that get the prizes. I think that's as fair as it can be, TP2... your hard work can get your clan to the clan cup, and they shouldn't have a problem finding high-quality subs for a shot at a prize. And as for you, Padouk, welcome back! You don't need to worry about unregistering, there's still check-in on the day of the tournament. If you preregister but don't check-in, no harm done.

And, the problem with the release forms is not that parents are unwilling to sign them, Sravan, it's that they might not know that they have to. However, if we are showing you on TV, we can't do so without the permission of your parents, even if it is only CTN. And I don't know what release form you were reading, Sravan, but it does not hold you liable for anything. It simply says that I can use your image to promote library events and you agree that I don't have to pay you.


o nvmd about the release form eli. i can change my team mario kart team at the check-in right? everyone knows this quote

i havent commentated before so i wouldnt know but in the different games how would we know which player is which. in melee they have their short nickname but black's short name is noah i think. in mario kart there is no thing above the player telling who they are. we can only look at the different stations trying to compare characters. i bet eli is going to laugh at me and say thats its a lot easier then that and everything we need will be like where all the high tech equipment is.

Anyway, muffincat, rule #1 of this blog is to ignore almost everything these knuckleheads say. Especially Black Shark & Sravan. It works for me! =) See you in the morning....


wait....... eli you listen to me why on earth would any1 listen to me
im so confused


Muffincat spelled a lot of things wrong in her long post. Its alright, though. I like Robot Chicken.

Well, Flare, I think you're pretty funny, and you're never rude. Of course, I would listen even more closely to a Mr. Chokums... =)


i am rude plzzzzzzz tell me im rude some1 im begging you


can i use a different nickname at each tournament eli


Ur rude Mr. Chockums

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


i was being sarcastisc if i was rude wouyld i say plz or ask some1 to tell me that im rude if i was rude i woould of demanded that some1 tell my im rude


Hi, I'm new. My name is Rod and I'm Sravan's friend. I'm not too good at video games but I'll give this my best effort.

If I get flamed in any manner on this blog I shall precede to beat the flamer's *** at the tournament. I really don't want to hurt anyone so please treat my post with respect, lest I have to open a can of whoop***.

Thank you for reading my post.

Yours truly, Rod


Muffincat that was beautiful, by far the longest and most enjoyable post I've ever read. What the read (reading) and read (I read [Past tense] the book) are spelled the same way, that’s like Mouse and Death inhabiting the same body and switching between personalities. You know a cauldron is a unit of measure but it's used to determine dry volume. And if I was to bring a candy of candy to the tournament it would be 500-800 pounds of candy. Why can't we use the metric system like normal people?

"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!"


well rod if any1 disses you its because they feel insecure about themselves so dont pay attention to any insulting comments because theyre just a waste of space and time


Yeah it's 11oclock and i'm just rubbing sports cream on my fingers and hands, that stuff really worrks, (Icy Hot) whoah, see u guys tommrow


Welcome aboard, Rod! This is really not a hostile environment, there are just a few schmoes who can't help snapping back and forth at each other. So, no need to come out swingin'. =)


Thanks for the welcoming, Eli. My first hostile post was due to some past experiences with events like these that didn't turn out so well. All in all, see you guys tomorrow! =)


hey rod is at my house and as u can guess he is my sub for derek. y does the tournament have to be on this gloomy day? at least i can see the sun shining behind these dark clouds. eli whats that supposed to mean i only USED to be a pain in the *** right? so when we get there do we tell u all the ppl that we refered or do we do that at the end where the points are added?

what happen to the site it's all like what the duce?


wtf is up with this page


wenbo screwed up the blog. eli use ur admin powers. some final words before the tournament. remember that its just a GAME and dont get to worked up about it. in the september tournament last year it was the final round of the prize round and there were 2 players left-leinad and joe. joe won but leinad argued that joe's partner derek was disturbing his concentration. joe agreed to a re match and killed leinad with 2 balloons to spare. so everyone be sprots man ike and be like joe. and good luck guys u'll need it jk.

yeH IT DOES TAKE to long and there are to many pansys playing ssbm i fought three in 1 battle

"IM RICK JAMES, BITCH"


What happened to the limited space rule. 80 people is to many we should limit to 60-64 max somewhere around there. while i was playing in the tournament the pizza came and when i got around to getting pizza there wasn't any after only a few mins. We didn't have the time to do anything. so either lowwer the max people or make it so that SSBM and MKDD are differnt dates. That took to long and was to crazy. The noise makers so shut the **** up. If they are that loud again I will punch one out.

Eli is it to late to change the scedual, because if you could make mario kart and mele on different days (ex mele on saterday mario kart on sunday morning and prize round sunday afternoon) we could have more time to do each.


YAY GRAND PRIZE!!!!!!

Anyway, I think next tournament we should have Single Mario Kart then Team Melee then Single Melee then Team Mario Kart. I say that 'cause at today's tournament we didn't have enough time and one of the events had to be knocked out. There was a unanimous vote for Team Mario Kart, 'cept Duck, Muffincat and their friends.

i didnt get to fill out a form the rate the event but i'd give it a 3. its not their fault that the event is so popular but we should do the idea of first come first serve. how about we mak pre registration an advantage meaning that if we pre register then we are assured to be in the tournament. we should actually limit the number of players to around 48-50. it would be a good idea to have mkdd and melee on seprate days. did this tournament count for clan points and if it did then where do we say who we rostered at this tournament. the all melee tournament in october does that include team melee?

It did count for clan points but it will be a bit before we log them. But the points won't be even for each event. MKDD single player should count for the most using the system Eli posted. Since it did get played the most and was scored at a higher rate. We royally slanted the scoring.

Eli it isn't last post for edit options because I can edit 2 posts. Still wondering what closes them.

"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!"


This is a comment I'll prolly re-post in the tournament results thread, but I'd just like to point out there is a much greater element of random chance in this year's tournaments. I realize that it wants to be kept "dicey," and last year there was about the right balance of luck. Last year there were consistent winners, and that is always a sign that there is a predominent element of skill in the tournament. This year it's been all but completely random, and it's been pushed over the edge into an almost "crapshoot" situation with the introduction of the melee events (which cuts down on time per event) and, the biggest contributing factor, a massive influx of new players (which cuts down on the time each person has to play, and thus demonstrate consistency (ie skill)). The new sur-prize round isnt any more luck based then the battle prize rounds (and maybe less luck based) so that can't be considered accountable for the jump in randomness. Really, the people you'd expect to win are rarely actually getting that far, and I dont think we've seen any of last years "favorites" win anything yet, then again a lot of those people were not present this event, so things might be different on a non band camp weekend.

That said, although it might have become too random for my tastes, it is possible that the other participants and the organizers (thanks for treating us all to an extremely fun six hours btw) might not feel the same way. I think everyone was blindsided by the 90 people who showed up and it's possible that simply no one was prepared for THAT many, but I think we can only expect more in the coming months (heck, this WAS during band camp), so if the consensus is that it's just getting too hectic with so many people there's a couple things that can be done. Splitting it over two days (or finding other ways to add extra time) as was suggested above would work, if five hours is all we can get and people are only going to get two (or less) guaranteed shots at any given event, then things to consider are the removal of items, increasing the number of people you pull in to the prize round (8 from each event?), or making the prize round simply mk/ssb:m based. Or ideally (for me) some combination of those and other luck reducing changes. Items really made things better last year, but if you ask me going head to head with upwards of 100 people is all the diceyness I need.


As jlgelinas mentioned this was Band Camp week. I know of 7 people that would have come had it not been. But it was also summer vacation so many people had nothing to do. So we don't know if the next event will be as busy. If we have more people quilify for the surprize round We risk having much higher numbers of people being in the final dec. tournament.

Just wondering did the preseason quilify people for the december finals? I'm not sure it's been a 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!"


whats up with the hitlers brain stuff?


Yes, i agree with jlgelinas and sravan we should really try and make sure that the 90 people incident doesn't happen again with the preregistration or a limit of how many people can play. If this Eli decides to do preregistration only for September I think we should still allow some people to register on the spot with a limit of players of course since not everyone is signed onto this blog and wouldn't know. Eli could hand out flyers but i doubt everyone who wants to go to these torunaments will pick up one.

Also since I won the Grand Prize shouldn't the Trouble MOnkeys be automatically in the finals in December? And I like the suprise round, I hope we keep them for the rest of the season.

you guys are just afraid that some1 will get lucky and beat you i know my luck is down.


I know that i'm new, but I was invited by two of the better known players, miniblin and duck, so I don't want to be grouped with the newer people that were at the event, and well I have to say that if some of the middle school students are going to act the way they did at the tourtament then I will whole heartedly join duck in getting rid of them. It was funny stealing their stuff! The clan that caused all that noise at event really should be either docked points or have a serious punishment!
All that aside I hope everones belts aren't to tight from lack of pizza.
