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 wanted to fight that team just so i had an excuse to hit them that noise made me wish i was deft


Yeah, I totally agree with Muffincat. Those idiots like John Durski shouldn't do that. Lot's of us didn't approve/liked all that. Also how did the middle school students act, besides John Durski and his firends? And why did you pair with the newer people. You could have just asked someone who wasn't new. And why does it matter the fact that you are new?

Eli, try to make the cup shortage not happen again by telling the people to hold on to their cups or get cans of soda.

swords sre shiny


I didn't have a partner, because mine was at band camp, so I asked duck to find me one, and he found his friend who was new to all of this, I am more then willing to partner with anyone, and other then the noise makers the other middle shcool kids were great and most have a really kind way of looking out for other players.
PS I only used one cup, and keeped track of it, and also some people don't like new people, so I didn't wnat anyone to harbor ill feelings towards me.


i hate random luck i could of beaten sravan if it wasnt for luck

Galen I think you guys winning the biggest prize shouldn't automatically put you in the clan cup. But If I'm not mistaken you guys accumulated the most points of any clan maybe the turtle clan beat you but I'm pretty sure you scored the highest so you would be in.

As for the December individual finals you shouldn't worry you’re in along with Sravan.

eli for team ssbm can we request battles cause the teams i fought today and at tha pre-season kinda sucked


No it's not that i won the grand prize that qualifies us in the clan finals. I think that Eli said that if you win any of the clan seasons you are in the december finals.

And Eli, please please please dont let Flare request teams. Im pretty sure he wants to face me and sravan.

i do want to fight you


lmao flare request battles. i was at rods's house so i didnt post much but i agree with muffincat and galen that clan should stop making that noise. when me and galen beat their team i was being an extremely sore winner and rubbing it in. thanks to galens prize round victory and my qualification in 3 events with lots of inhearet bonuses i think the trouble monkeys won this one. let me get this straight in this tournament the trouble monkey clan rostered only rod,me,galen, and joe. also whenever we count this but for the referals in our clan, i refered rod, ugo and his clan so thats 905, galen refered david, and joe refered his friend whose name i forgot but it started with a D. so thats 905+202 which is 1107 +galen's 1000 which comes to a total of 2107 plus all the races and matches. i was suprised that turtle person2 when he came 3nd to me he won his other elimination against other players putting him in the top 4 with me and 2 others. i got 4th in 1 event, 1st in 2 others because eli said he wasent going to try and bother to see who got 1st and 2nd cuz it would waste more time even though he did that for mario kart. so thats 900 off of events which gives 3007 yay. now we need to count each individual race but that will take too long. galen i need to talk to u about the primary members in our clan. anyway back to suggestions where is the mario party and pikman2 eli?? and for the december tournament can we please please please not have a suprise game and have it only comprimised of mixed ssbm and mkdd events ans well as the clan cup. duck did u make into today's prize round? in the team mario kart event we should have the top 2 move on and then we will ahve 8 ppl race for the top 4 like it should be. but since the transition of games inst going to well(mkdd to melee) i think we should have each game on a different day. the only problem with that is axis has to rescedule and where will the suprise round be? that was really sad when we had to restart LAN TWICE IN A ROW because people would not follow directions. muffincat dont worry about the noise makers they got their *** kicked. 64 is an extremly large number so i was thinking of 48-54 ppl as i said earlier. maybe we should change the rules of melee to 2 minute time because it seems stock involves too much panseeness as flare discribed earlier. 2 stages should be banned one is hyrule temple because people can avoid anybody even noobs and the 2nd is yoshi story the N64 version beacause well rod knows lol. since tp2 didnt get into the top 4 of the prize round i think the trouble monkeys got this one in the bag. wonder how long this post is. i dont use paragraphs even though it makes it a lot neater

that was about 8 paragraphs i think


Sravan, i don't like your idea for team mario kart. It's Team Mario Kart. If we did that there would be 1 team game and 1 single game. Also, yes I agree with Sravan. At the finals lets not have a suprize round. The clans didn't work that hard to just get beaten at some random game they don't know about.

I didn't get into the surprize round this tournament but 2 of my subs did. I want a surprize round at the finals.

Because I like the concept.

I like the idea of having the tournament on both days of the weekend. Just nothing Sunday morning. Maybe we could do melee on saturday and kart on sunday+surprize round.

Eli you have to something about the number of people coming. I don't know if there are any bigger rooms we could go to, but that room was hot, it didn't smell good. It was also very crowded. I wouldn't be surprised if we broke the fire limit for number of people in that room. Maybe we could have a waiting room for people who aren't playing. Also could there be fans in that room?


my idea for team mario kart is good. we had 4 races and if the top 2 ppl in each race moved on that would be good. then we will have 8 ppl to battle for the top 4. tp2 we are getting into the winter but i still like ur idea about keeping every1 else outside so we can avoid that thing what happened in september and those ******* noise makers. tp2 i should give u props for being one of the best melee players there u came in 2nd to me but won ur match against other ppl who came first. i only beat flare by dumb luck as he said there was a bomb in the capsule and he smashed it. galen and joe do u think we should boot derek for flare. he is extremely good at melee and he got 1st and 2nd in his races yesterday but didnt qualify for the prize round until team melee. he would have for single melee but as i said above he didnt. and anytime joe can not come to a tournament we can use rod as our sub. does anyone know who got 2nd,3rd, and 4th in the prize round even though eli will make a post about it today.

"The course of true love never did run smooth"


oops i used copy and paste cuz the site kept going down and i didnt want to retype my comment


i can't believe that more then 7/8 of the players used swordsman and then 1/16 used sheik. they arent that good u know. people think they cant hit someone and make them go flying off the edge with link's up-B but all the have to do is sheild then attack or attack from above. the young links tried to use down B but they don't know about L-canceling so i dodge them then smash them. also another way to attack link is to wave dash which is a complicated air dodge which the game transforms into a horizontal movement where u can use any attack. we will see more of these techniques when we play the older kids in october. about marth and roy if someone misses with roy's counter then the other player has a long time to attack them. marth on the other hand u have to out wit him by not using the same attacks everytime but u could wave dash into him then attack him. marth and roy also have no projectiles so they rely on items. like i said about new ppl commentating they dont know **** about the games and they thought they were the best until they faced our top players(when i say our i mean us vetrans). the commentators throughout the season should be me,duck,muffincat,galen,black shark,tom,leinad, and tp2 but i didnt see him commentate so i dont know. thats 7 ppl excluding tp2 so we need 1 more person so we can have 2 ppl for every tournament. does anyone know who the guy named"the post" using?

Yeah I was in the prize round, but I keep killing my self with bombs, that game cheats!
And I would really enjoy being an anouncer, but with all the people last time you couldn't hear any of the commentating, and the commentators should be louder that includeds me, and I asked someone in charge at the event,eli or someone to stop the noise makers, but they said that they allowed them to make the noise in the first place.
and when are we going to play pikmin 2 thats like the only game other then ribbitking that I'm really good at.


if we say we want to play pikman 2 then eli wont have it as one of the games.

ok, then I wont say anymore about it.


at least im not the only pikman2 fan here. i like that they look out the time limit in this one. i havent beat the game yet though. but i dont want pikman2(sarcasim)

so uh...what do you guys think about my proposal of Single Mario Kart, Then Team Melee, then Single Melee and Last Team melee?

Trouble Monkey Clan
Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.


u mean last team mario kart. that would be bad cuz we have to switch the games twice and the transition this time didnt go too well we took about 30minutes to get all the memory cards copied and change the games etc. galen we are gonna go to d-ops at 2pm today ok?

I like the purple ones cuz they swush enemies. and can we have a teken tourtatment, because that game is loads better then melee.
about somethings, I still like melee though, oh and in the new kingdom hearts coming out in december, one of the levels is in "pirates of the carribean".

wah?


Sravan is right, galen, switching games twice would not help our time problem. Thanks for all your comments, this is really helpful as I'm deciding how best to handle our success. I'm going to make a detailed post tomorrow, but for now, here are my thoughts. These are not binding and I reserve the right to change my mind about any of them.

1. Limit registration to X preregistrations and X walkins. While I think we were pushing it yesterday, with some of these other changes, I think we could still have up to 100 competitors total and make it work. Fire code for that room is 144, but I don't want to get close to that.

2. Either eliminate single-player Kart or make it a single elimination event. That was by far the most time-consuming event yesterday, since only 8 people can play at a time. Just the qualifications took almost 2 hours. That's why everything else was so rushed. Alternately, we could go split screen and have 2 4-station networks, 2 players per screen.

3. Set up the food, registration desk, tables, and a Big TV outside the room in the little lobby, to offer overflow seating, a waiting room, at reduce congestion near the entrance to the room. I think we would set up the registration desk at the bottom of the stairs for better flow.

4. I will assign commentary duties for each event. I want to create some 2-person commentary teams, and I'll assign which teams commentate on which part of the events. We cannot have that kind of mess in the booth next time, and I want high-quality commentating. Tom and Leinad have set the standard.

5. Diego won't like this, but I'm toying the possibility of moving the video production and commentary booth out of the room and into a smaller room nearby, to insulate it a bit from the mayhem. We would have some little monitors so that the commentators can watch all 8 screens at once. I'm sure this isn't practical, but I'm throwing it out there.

6. There is no 6.

So, what do you think? Stay tuned for a post late tomorrow with full results, clan details, etc. Oh, by the way, I did give my permission to Clan Noise Machine to do their thing. It was definitely annoying, but entirely appropriate, and you may notice that they got tired of it after a while.


i miss the classic sportof exploding elephants with mutant coral


Eli these ideas/suggestions rock, except the one about 100 people, I don't know if I could come if it was ever that crowded, either that or I will need a bottle of aspririn, 500mg,.
It would be cool for the commentators to be able to see what is going on with the races with their own monitors, because everyone was standing in the way of the projection screen and they had a hard time seeing what was going on sometimes. and the thing about cutting back on mario cart, I like having like 4 rounds to determine your score, the two round thing was hard, and the only one life bit during the team melee was so sad for me and my partner who don't own the game, I mean we don't suck that bad, but it was hard to hold on with only one life against people who have been playing these games longer then I've even heard of them. I liked the small tourtaments it's feels a little more fun, like everone knows each other.

Now to end I will sing a song,
lalalalalalalalalaalalalalalalalalalalalalal potatoealalalalalalalalalalalalorionalalalalalaalsnailalalalalaalalalallalalalaalalalpeopelealalalalalathe endlalaalalal


does any else miss explodoing elephants beides me


Eli is it possibile to extend the tournaments a few extra hours so they're less rushed instead of noon to 5 could it be 11 to 7? That would give us plenty of time so we wouldnt have to have single or doubble elimination. P.S. please don't cut mkdd single that is my favorite event


I agree with your suggestions except 6. Don't eliminate single player kart. Instead make the top 4 move on from each race. What I noticed at the last tournament was that a large number of people had either never played the games before didn't own the games or didn't even own a cube.

Also were Anti-Snowman and I (melee masters) first in team melee. We won every game by a landslide. We played 2 games where one of us didn't take damage. I find it hard to believe that we placed 1st because, we didn't face anyone good.

Also, I also agree with Eli that the noise makers can keep being annoising (I know that's not a word). If they want to fill the room with enemies that is okay with me. I know that every time I saw one eliminated it made me happy knowing that they would stop beating their heads with a drumstick. (Although maybe we should encourage that more.)

I would just like to say that the surprise round was quite a surprise. I had already created mental lists of what games it could be. Bomberman was not on it. However, it was a pretty good game. It only gave a slight advantage to those who had played it before. Pikmin 2 would be a bad choice. Too expensive. Too slow. (only 2 people at once). Too much of an advantage to those who own it. Not easy to pick up either. (Which is probably part of the last part.)

By the way Galen is it true you own a bomberman game for the gamecube. If so that doesn't change who gets the money it only changes how I view your skill. Which must be good enough to get to the prize round.

I almost forgot
"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


I know that the people making noise stopped after a while, but a while is like three hours!
that's like nials on a chalk board for three hours to me, and I really have been working hard to improve my skill, but I don't know if I could make it to far if it was more cute troat and turtleperson is right, don't get rid of single player mario cart.
but pikmin does not take to long nor is it hard to understand, it's as easy to understand as Bomberman,.
and how many of you have actually pikmin battled?
Do you even know the format? think about that before passing judgement.


its great that so many people are coming but most of the new people there during the ssbm section (i didnt pay attention during the mkdd part) wold just pick some1 like roy and then run away or just sit there using flare blade or or some other move constantlyi mean 1 fought some1 who came in first both times during the qualification round by using peach to run away using her parasail so time could be a soulotion or we could do bonus cause that actully seperates the pansys from the players or we could stick with stock and prove we dont have to change the rules to beat them

"I hate pansys"-Raymond E. Feist


i say most of the ppl that come come for mele, yes the ppl o this site like double dash but still thats only like 6-7ppl, and i think if there anything we should drop it's double dash team...


i prefer melee but mkdd team fun but if we have to drop something then it should be mkdd team


Maybe we don't have to drop anything it's like duck said this could have been a one time shoot, and when school gettings going maybe only the deticated people will show up, and team mario cart was how I got in the prize round so I don't want it cut.


i dont want it cut either but better that then other things


Thanks flare and your right it would be the least missed event.


your welcome


God! That tournament was so ****ed up in soooooooooo many ways!
1. 2 MANY PEOPLE!
2. Not Enough pizza
3. 2 many ties because of the # of ppl
4. It wasn't even on TV
5. I didn't even get in the surprise round because of a ****in' slow MKDD car.
6. Galen won (I don't hate u galen, I just envy u)
7. Galen didn't do the truffle shuffle
8. And I was soooooooooooooo annoyed by those damn noise makers. Eli, please don't let the Durski bros. bring those ever again!
9. No clan scores were even reported and the technology was messed up so that made Eli 4got some ppl who signed up for a certain event.
10. I just think that Eli should just do pre-reg. only, capiesche?

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalen
Gong! Do the truffle shuffle. Eli should make DBZ Budokai 1 or 2 or both be in one of the surprize rounds and maybe the other DBZ Budokai game in another surprize round.

Black Shark Clan

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


3 things 1.I think we should all shut up about the prize round because if we keep talking about the games eli wont use them K.
2.my brother is part of the noise making clan and he says next time it will be even louder so remember to bring ear plugs.
and 3.Eli is there any time limit on how long the tournaments have to be? last time it went about 1 hour over and it was still very rushed


I'm really surprised so many people were so bad a SSBM. I played one single player match on Pokèfloats in which there was a pikachu, Mewtwo, and Link and both pokèmon were ousted in under a half-min before the floating green thing came. The pichacu allowed me to smash him with a home-run Bat when at 0%.

I play defensive but doing things like peach parasol or links up-B is pathetic. Good people can break those moves easy, especially if you have projectiles/Items. I don't like the Idea of taking away all Items. I believe in the fact that you’re not the best unless you can handle any situation. But in order in make it more skill based I suggest: Hearts, Tomatoes, Stars, Hammers, Cloaking Devices, Metal Boxes, Red Koopa Shells, Bob-ombs, Pokèballs, Party Balls, and Mushrooms are turned off.

I want to have MKDD single player the most, it is my favorite event. Putting split screen on is a great Idea. It would allow it to take half the time. Plus what about the little kids. You can't just have them play MKDD and then not let them play it when they make it to 6th grade.

We really can't drop an event it would slant the clan points unfairly for this past event.

Oh and the noise makers should lose the symbol. I can handle the other stuff but the symbol was the worst.

"What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?"


why do you guys have to make noise it's hard for other players to concentrate, don't you have any consideration for others, I can't believe eli allows this, he gets angry no one listens to instructions, but how can anyone hear anything, but if it's war you want monkeyman, then bring it, because the next tourtament we are stealing your stuff and you WILL NOT SEE IT AGAIN, lots of people are all in favor of you and your brother's utter and complete destruction.
so stop this before true war begins.


Sorry but the only load noise I can stand is really good guitar solos.


Monkeyman isn't in the loud clan.

"What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?"


ok whatever I can't follow this, go ahead make as much noise as you want monkeymans brother or who ever , no one cares any more so why should I,geeiz
so when's the next tourtamnet?


September 24th.

"What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?"


links up b is easy to break eihter wait till its over and attack while hes recovering or hit him from above ect... and the parasail is easy if youre not already occupied but i was busy fighting ugo also i think we should take out the super scope


The ones I listed are a little on the unbalenced side. The super scope isn't cheap just a little irritating.

"What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?"


if you charge it up all the way it can be just as dangerus as tthe hammer


ok monkey man go tell ur brother to **** himself and that if he does in the next tournament i'll hire a gang of gansters to **** him up so we wont play anymore ******* noise at the tournaments. split screen is a very good idea so we can run 2 races at a time. we should not cut single mario kart its one of my favortie events and cut none of the events for that matter. i was at d-ops for 5 hours and me and galen beat these other 2 guys in halo2 so we got a free hour. i like all of eli's suggestions like having a waiting room and the only people allowed inside the multi purpose room(the main room) will be eli and the whole crew like kip,diego, and erik, the players who are playing, the commentators(having commentators in a seprate room also works and i'm fine with it but i like having commentators watchign the action on the big screen, and anyone who wants to watch the players and has permission from that player(this doesnt apply to that ******* noise making clan). did i miss any1? when the pizza comes we have to have an ordered line having each line be a different topping. if u want 2 pizzas with different toppings on each then u have to wait in line twice. thats what u get not having a favorite lol. better yet we should serve pizza in a different room like that hall infront of the multi purpose room. joe what do u think about booting derek for flare? flare do u like the idea of being in our clan? the only questions are what will the teams be? im sorry but ugo u are just as bad as the noise making clan, u come up to people while they are playing (like galen and me) and u start screaming in their face to get 5th or 4th or w/e and they end up in 6th or 7th. also u go to the opponents i'm playing in melee and tell them to team up on me which they did last month and i got 2nd in a match which ruined my perfect score. tp2 no u didnt come in 1st for team melee cuz we and galen are better then u and so is flare and rod. eli made it that all 5 teams got 1st so we all go into the prize round. muffincat y i wanted to be c-stick h8r(hater) is because i hate the pansees who rely on the c-stick. in the old one when there was no c-stick galen and i can pwn their ass. black shark can u stop cussing plz. one more thing GO SCREW YOURSELF NOISE MAKERS AND I'M GLAD U DIDN'T WIN CUZ U ******* SUCK. wonder how long this post is.

I suggest: Hearts, Tomatoes, Stars, Hammers, Cloaking Devices, Metal Boxes, Red Koopa Shells, Bob-ombs, Pokèballs, Party Balls, and Mushrooms are turned off. posted by duck.

red koopa shells are easy to deal with just use ur reflector with fox and u can do that with a super scope too thats what i did to rod once. poke balls can stay on cuz 1/2 the time u get a bad one and 1/2 of the ones left u can dodge. lugia in my opinion is the only cheap one other then blastoise they over powered him in this game too much. bomb-omb should stya on cuz one of the fundamentals in the game which basically no one at the tournaments knows is air dodge and catching items. u have to catch a bomb-omb to beat the whole game. cloaking devices in this case their name is on their head so its the no damage factor u can still kill them cheaply like link's up-B or if they have high damage already like over 100 then smash attack them. when u are marth and u get them off the edge they are basically dead. im suprised u dont want party balls u like randomness. most of the time its either food which isnt on ur list or bomb-ombs. mushroms so way, giant isnt much of an advantage its harder to hit people but its also some times easier to hit them cuz u are huge. poisin mushroom u can get it and u are forced to use one of the melee skills which is dodgeing other players. hammers should be turned on cuz u and a lot of other ppl use marth so u can counter the hammer. also people are tend to be afraid of some one with a hammer but its better to fight them from the air. even though it will do 30 dmg it will stun them and remember if u hit them off the edge they can't come back. metel boxes can be an advantage and a disadvantage. if u have high damage u should get it so it will be harder for u to fall. but if u have low damage and u accidently die then u will hate urself for the rest of the tournament. stars should be kept on cuz its not that hard to dodge him for only about like 20 seconds. finally tomatos and hearts i think the tomato can stay cuz its only 50 damage but im not so sure about the heart. 100 damage is a lot and is like a big break for u especially in a 2 stock match. flare i'm just curious but do u use the c-stick cuz it seems like u dont. do u guys want me to post the exact speeds of all the characters when they are normmal sized?

Yes a full charge is dangerous, but it takes time and can't be held on to so it isn't the most versital item plus the hammer is always hitting it isn't a one shot. The hammer also limits your movement (one jump Very band on I.M.) and some of the time leaves you defenseless (headless). I oppose doing Bonus because there is switzerland which is 12,000 points for not attacking or being hit plus doing alot of other things like edge Hog and taunting gives a huge ammount for doing nothing but dodging.

"What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?"


sravan you dont want me in youre clan cause as soon as i join ill start having the worst luck ever im serious thats my luck besides im just okay at mkdd and ssbm


yeah i guess youre right exept that running away actully increases youre chance of getting hit cause an enemy struggilingto get back on isnt very dangerous exept for luigis afterburnerand if you cant beat the person in a fight then you probelywont get away from them either and the super scope gives you three super shots and yeah they take time but as sravan said the hammer has its weak points and i dont use the c-stick but i do sometimes use x and y to jump taunting gives you like 500 points thats not that much even if you do get a whole loot of edge hog points you still get more for offense artist ko artist first place and ect...

"What chu got to say ta dat huh punk"


Hmm..How about Melee first then Mario kart?

Trouble Monkey Clan
Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.


and you lose points for coward and opportunist and predator and ect..


MKDD first otherwise the LAN has to be connected mid-tournament and you saw how that went.

There still is the fact that many bonuses given are for unimportant things. Getting mew gives you 10k. It is completely possible to own someone and lose the match. KO's give you 500 per KO's so a good match might give you 3000 from regular KO's. Being a Dedicated Specialist gives you that for only doing one type of B move in a match.

i never said anything about bonus today. galen that would work but they would have to connect LAN inbetween which might take 15-45minutes unless they connect it before hand. switching the games wont do much it will take the same time as having them in the original order but if we do something wrong like screw up and get ppl into the wrong stations we will have to do single elimination for mario kart. eli i told u that john durski didnt make the sudden death in single melee but u said ice didnt. i even heard ugo asking him howcome he didnt make it and he said i'll make in melee so he has GUILTY WRITTEN ALL OVER HIS FACE FOR CHEATING. he got ice into the finals and guess what ice won the last race and i bet he wouldnt have qualified if it wasent for john durski but its not ice's fault. did anyone notice that we had dino dino jungle a lot yesterday. it was in the final elimination for single mario kart where there is 8 ppl left and it was in the team mario kart that me and galen raced in. flare most of ur bad luck comes against me or galen so when u are with us and not against us there will be no bad luck so i want u.

instead of banning items we should ban courses. i think hyrule temple so far.

"When i get on stage people worship me, cuz i'm sexy and chubby!"


actully its only hitting with 1 b move and the unimportant stuff doesnt give that much compared to the important stuff do you like have an issue with bonus or something duck


No the unimportant stuff has a huge impact. For some reason doing weird unimportant things can make you win.

My gosh the dino dino jungle. I was in the lead of the last lap and fell in to the pit (someone bumped me in) and normally I could last and pull a top 4, But the pit went on for 4 or 5 seconds before I stoped. It droped me to 6th place. The pact was fairly spread out and 5th had a hude lead on me.

like what? name some bonuses


nvm youre right


Yes I start A new Page.

I like the Idea of having the food and stuff away from the sign-in. Maybe behind the big screen. We dont use that space at all.

"What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?"


thats a good point duck. we never use that space. i saw joe listening to his ipod there though. i got so lucky in dino dino jungle. we were before the bridge part where there are 3 routes to take adn i got 3 mushrooms so i used them and i was in 5th, i could see 4th in my sights and then after the tunnel i got 3 more mushrooms i used one then used another while i mini turboed and hit 4th place then used another to keep him away from me and i finished with 4th place, i was in the bowser car or else i would have done better. duck what was ur character combination?

Eli, do something about those ****in noise makers, everybody hates them, and y does muffincat assume that we all have been making noise on the noise makers. Muffincat, if u want 2 get mad at someone, get mad at monkeyman's brother, the Durski's, and whoever else is in that annoying clan. Just threaten them, saying that u will use ur muffincatwoman powers and u will scratch them with ur claws and give them bad tasting muffins or somethin' like that. I will be at the next tournament, and I will be in the surprise round, I guransheed it. Eli, y can't u make a little open play this week or somthin', I don't want 2 end the aadl-gt summer losing in the tournament, I want more tournament playing.

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


Wow, and turtleperson2. I do not have Bomberman Generations for the Gamecube, i don't even have a Gamecube. I played a previous version of bomberman on the PS1 that was similar to the one at the tournament.

we cant put ppl behind the screen because they want to watch the game. that also adds on to eli and muffincat's i dea(i think) that we should have people outside in that open area behind the doors to get in to the main room. they want to watch the game too but it will make them more tense and have a nervous breakdown if we dont let them. maybe the ppl waiting outside can listen to the commentators so its like listening to the radio when there is a huge baseball game is going on and the ppl at the radio station are commentating. if anyone has seen the movie "Searching for Bobby Fischer" in the scene where he is at his like first tournament playing other kids u see the tournament orginizer telling the parents that they can only watch the game and cannot kabitz or talk to their son/daughter. later u see these 2 parents fighting over the table where one is on each side and then they take up all the parents into the end of this hall and lock up by pulling a chain door to blick their way out( if u have ever been to a school after hours like at 6 they have these preventing theves). then all the children inside the room start clapping lol. later on u see this chain of kids like one is watching the game then goes and tells the next person in another part of the building the move that he did then that kid goes downstairs to the basement to tell the parents lol. this is a perfect example of what happened at the tournament (except for the fighting part) but mainly other people watching being a distraction and especially pressuring the player. we shouldnt lock up the players who arent playing but just keep them in that seprate room and let them listen to the commentators who will be somewhere else if they arent in the main room like eli said. seaching for bobby fischer features john waitzken who in 1993 was america's highest rated player under 18. well anyway to summarize that up we have the ppl who are playing, eli and his crew, commentators(maybe depending on eli), and other players who have permisssion from their friend to watch but can not disturb any other players and must stay at their friends station but this last rule may not work cuz eli likes to keep us waiting till the last minute so eli might not go with that rule. all others should stay out. if we have the commentators outside the main room we should do the radio example or the bobby fischer one where the most important information gets to the last. well anyway what do u think eli and everyone else?

I only suggested they put the food back there so people don't crowd the stairs. But I like the Idea of having stuff outside the main room but there isn't much space there.

i miss exploding elephants


Elephants don't explode. All they do is explode huge amounts of their "biosolids".

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


OK, first, let's all chill about the Noise Machine. All this rage is playing right into their hands, frankly. If you make a big deal about it, it will just encourage them. I like the energy they brought to the tournament, and it seems to be an effective tactic. At any rate, they got under many skins. I am not telling them to stop, although I do think that the cymbal may have been a bit much. We'll see how it goes.

Anyway, I do think we can make better use of the entire basement, including the space behind the screen. I've got plenty of ideas, but I will not be limiting access to the room to current players, that would just be a mess, and impossible to enforce. However, with more space available to sit, the food served outside the room, and a Big TV to watch, people will spread out. Also, the Noise Machine will help us there. =) I think we can make it work. We may very well not have as many people next month, with school, football, etc, but we also haven't started advertising yet. We will not expand this event to a multi-day thing; we already have events scheduled on sunday for younger players, and I don't want to limit success to people who can block out an entire weekend to this. We can't really start earlier, as the start time has already been promoted in printed flyers, and we can go a little over, but the library closes at 6 on saturdays. However, we can open the doors earlier, and we'll work on that.

As for banned items and stages, I still haven't heard a compelling reason to do it. However, I am going to Penny Arcade Expo next weekend to observe a truly HUGE tournament, and they ban some items and stages... their banned item list looking an awful lot like duck's. Check it out.

So, sounds like split-screen would be a good solution for MKDD, it's actually something I thought about way back last year. What about 4 players per station? Are the TVs too small for that, or is it an option? One thing about the PAX tournament is that people play an entire cup, and the top two places advance. That might be a way to get more races in less time, since there won't be people moving around, and we could only collect scores at the end of the cup. If we could go to 4 players per station, we could have 32 people racing at a time, and if we did a full 4-race cup for each set, 64 people could get 4 races in less than half an hour. The only catch with this is that there's more standing around, you won't race as often.


Eli, I don't think we should have 4 at each station, the tvs r way 2 small and it would be very hard 2 concentrate with 3 other players being right by u, u have 2 have your space, I'll go with the idea of 2 at each station for the most, even though it would save a lot of time 2 do 4 at each station. Yeah, u just keep thinking of ways 2 make this tournament faster. Im going 2 bed. Good luck in Washington. R U actually going 2 play in this tournament. One thing I saw was about the banned stages, u should keep all the stages in melee. I dont always want 2 have 2 fight on small stages. Don't take away Hyrule atleast.

Black Shark Clan

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"


noah take away hyrule. here is my logic. hyrule is the biggest stage in the game and especially in 1v1 the person can aviod the other person under all costs by running away and forcing sudden death. hyrule is also cheap in sudden death if nobody knows but to the very left of the course there is a little arc like that u can go under(this is on the top) and if u stay there the bombs wont hit u but ur opponent will eventually die from the bombs. yoshi N64 is cheap because of panseeing on the clouds. one exapmple out of hundreds is fox going to the last cloud jumping up and down using his gun shooting the other players on the stage. as long as u keep jumping u wont die. flat zone isnt cheap just pokemon there are cheap. if something hits a tool and that tool hits u its an instant 1-hit KO. i was playing angainst a level 9 and he got a poke ball whihch was starmie. one of starmie's things hit a tool then the tool hit he and i went saring up till i got KOed. big blue is fine its just that its moving which ticks other ppl off but pokemon there is usually not an issue cuz they usually get left behind cuz of incredible speeds. eli they are doing 1v1 too. maybe we should follow their example and have about 64 players at one tournament and then we do 1v1 single elimination while u guys keep track of the bracket. but we will have to play 4 matches for the first round, then 2 matfches for the 2nd round, then 1 match with 16 ppl left then we will have 8 ppl left then we will have 4 then we will have our top 4 ranked players and that is 9 matches if we can do that? hammer shouldnt be banned but tomatos and hearts should be banned. hammer is easy to avoid unless u are on a flat stage like final destination. all u have to do is lure him to the edge the jump up and meteor smash him with dr.mario or someone else like link. u can also smash him on the ground. sure it will do 30 damage to u but it will make him stunned and u can attack him again. i dont know y food is on that list but food isnt much. its average 6 damage heal from food and when it comes out of a party ball a lot of ppl get it. cloaking devise maybe cuz of the no damage factor but if we do ban cloaking devise then we should ban star. star is very cheap to the person who gets it. only in a 1v1 it isnt much but in 4 player free for all he has 3 targets to choose. i dont see whats so bad about a red koopa shell u can reflect it with ur reflector with fox and if u arent fox then thats too bad for u. metal box we should keep cuz the other player can still do damage and if they ever hit them off it is very hard to get back up. we should keep the items on low as the PAX thing said cuz ppl tend to get big breaks if u know what i mean. mushrooms are not that bad, even if u get a big its everyone dodges the big player then if u get small its everyone goes after the small player. termina should be banned because of that cheap throw where the bounce off the bottom of the top floor then die. iccle mountain also should be banned cuz of people tending to avoid danger AKA hiding. in sudden death if u stay under the rock no 1 can get u except link with his boomarang. im starting to think that we should also ban flat zone cuz of another cheap throw cuz the stage is so small. u pick someone up u throw then back then u turn around and smash attack(hey that ryhmes). brinstar depths should stay on its just that ppl tend to have bad luck. i like this split screen cup idea where if we have 64 players then we will only have to have 8 races total before the elimination rounds. 4 ppl on one tv is stressing it i know it would be saving time but its not convienent for the players. have u ever tried 4 player split screen LAN mode on both tv's it is soooooooooo laggy. split screen isnt that bad though. well in conclusion we should ban heart,tomato,star,cloaking devise(maybe),and mushrooms(all of them). for stages we should ban hyrule, yoshi N64, icicle mountain, flat zone, and termina. for the split screen if we have 64 playersit would be 4 races for each 8 so thats 32 races but we can run them simltainiously so thats 16. that still doesnt work out right. if we have less players like 48 then it would be 12 races total. i like this idea but eli it is ur tournament and u get to do whatever u want. please next time can we do 1v1...

elephants do explode play lotr the return of the king and then tell me im wrong


sravan you can counter red shyells too


Eli is there any time limit for the tournaments? Last time it went 1 hour over and was still rushed could you make it 11-7 or 11-8 instead that would give us pleanty of time.


monkeyman the library closes at 6. i treid to come back in for some water but i couldnt. we could do 11-5 or 11-6. does anyone know why we use an hour instead of a hour like in grammer? like when a word starts with a vowel it uses 'an' but a consanant uses 'a'

because the our language is screwed up

"dont f*** wit shady cause shady will F****n kill you"


Why not just do the lan thing while everone is getting pizza, like hold back anyone from getting any and during the switch allow people to get pizza, this way no one will be in a match while others are getting pizza, and since the system will be down then more focus can be put on giving out food in an orderly manner. I personal don't care for pizza that much, but I don't want my friends going without like last time, and black shark that was so funny you made me sound like cat women, and if I was her then I would have enough money from stealing art work that I could make my own private tourtament, but untill that happens I will keep on coming to the ones at the library, and I know that up B is a sort of easy thing to do with link, but you know I don't own the game so I just try my best at the tourtaments, so if I'm a flower or whatever you call people who can't fight that well, then so be it, I go there just to have fun, try my best ,and be with my friends./And so I openly admit that I add to the problem of the mass numbers of meduim skilled people. but I do own a cbe!
Also why not put drinks and chips behind the big screen and put pizza in the usual food spot so it bracks it up a little, because some people want to have chips with their pizza, but it has to be moved aside when the pizza comes.

and if the noise makers are going to be allow then I say let them make noise in the hallway, that way they aren't right behind players who are trying to focus, I know that they cornered me during a match in melee, standing right behind me making noise and there was nothing I could do.
feeling defeated by people with dollar store noise makers show me that in world is indeed a sad place now a days, I can understand being excited, that's pretty much my personality, but their noise wasn't about fun it was about spite.

continue a good life


the word is pansy not flower and medium skill wasnt thre problem it was no skill or low skill people other wise well said

"dont f*** wit shady cause shady will F****n kill you"


flare pansy is a type of flower. i like muffincat's idea of puuting the food in different places so its less cramped. pansys are generally people who try to win cheap and u are not one fo them muffincat. they may use the same move over again like link or the try to hide or do a kamakazee like john durski who is indeed part of the noise making clan. nobody who posts on the blog is a pansee. if any of us are in the same match and when i say us i mean the ppl on the blog, and we are facing a noise maker in melee we should team up on him to show him how we non cheap players do it!
