Leaderboard

Ok, we've got some new features in our system, and we're proud to present the first ever Season Clan and Player leaderboards. There may still be a few issues here, of course, so if you've got questions, ask away. Also note that these are the only clans for which I have registration information. If your clan played last weekend, and you're not listed, post a comment or drop an email to axis@aadl.org and we'll get you all set.

First of all, we've got a bit of a surprise on the Clan Leaderboard after 1 round. With 5 Clans competing so far, the Clan Champ of round 1 is....

Skillz dat Killz!
-- Earnist da Chicken
-- J's Coolio
-- MonkeyMan
-- Doomblaze

Total Round 1 score: 4000 points

Skillz dat Killz, made up of 4 wildcards from season 1, storms out of nowhere to rack up the most points out of any clan competing at round 1. They secure their spot in the Clan Cup in december, narrowly edging out second place Turtle Clan (3940 points) and the third place Trouble Monkey Clan (3850 points). Here's the full clan leaderboard:

1. Skillz dat Killz (4000)
2. Turtle Clan (3940)
3. Trouble Monkey Clan (3850)
4. Vaccinated Monks (1360)
5. Black Shark Clan (1340)
6. Turtle Clan 2: T-unit (600)

I know there are some other clans that we didn't get registered, so let me know and I'll get you set up. Also, this is without recruitment bonuses applied; recruitment bonuses only count toward your leaderboard score, and can't help you win a single round. We'll get recruitment bonuses sorted out over the next few weeks, but we will only credit the clan that the new member says recruited them, so get your recruits online and in here to tell us that you recruited them!

So, here, also, are the top 32 players on the Individual Leaderboard:

1. Earnist Da Chicken (1785)
2. c0N (1695)
3. TurtlePerson2 (1680)
4. pr0 (1515)
5. anti snowman (1305)
6. Jimmy (1140)
7. Post (1130)
8. Doomblaze (1040)
9. Ice (905)
10. *Flare* (895)
11. Corey (865)
12. Bad driver (740)
13. Gnato (695)
14. Ion (670)
15. Monkeyman (660)
16. bbqkitten (625)
17. Chris R (615)
18. DrewE (565)
19. J's Coolio (515)
20. jlgelinas (515)
21. Duck (485)
22. zyke (465)
23. Joe S (455)
24. aaron (440)
25. D-Rex (435)
26. KingBoo (435)
27. Paul K (420)
28. John (395)
29. The Gamer (395)
30. AKIA (390)
31. Nick11 (385)
32. Balla (375)

Ok, got questions? I knew you would. Fire away, but bear in mind I'm off to PAX tomorrow morning, and may not get to all your questions until next week.

why is the showdown so easy i hate how easy it is


its easy with fox,falco,yoshi, and jigglypuff. i beat it with dr.mario once. sometimes i use roy and just have fun countering everyone even though i'll lose. so flare how many people do u have in ur clan?

i told you im not in a cxlan but i can easily make 1


and you forgot marth and captain falcon


yeah thats all fdolks


So far, this whole page has had basically 3 people posting, me, sravan, and flare. Plus that one post from duck, but that's it. Sravan, Flare, I guess were the only ones who don't have homework problems and can find the time 2 post everyday. But I'm sure that more people will post on weekends.

"Chunks does the Truffle Shuffle"


i do my homework on the bus


Sravan, the new leaderboard will have all the people's individual performances(The new leaderboard will post everybodys performance on MKDD and SSBM and 2 some people 4 the surprise round). And plus, I think this new leaderboard will show clan scores plus the bonus points 2 see who really has the most points.

Black Shark Clan

"Chunks does the Truffle Shuffle"


noah i havent started school yet i am starting tommarow, wow u are really slow. and basically all the other people are in high school so their homework is harder.

you kniow that that is no excuse they can still post if they wanted to on the plus side they will be out of practice


Sravan, about the xbox 360 thing. The PS3 is supposed to be more powerful and can pump out more pixels than the xbox 360, it won't neccecarily be better since it all depends on the games. Also since the PS3's graphics are so good it is possible that if you want to play it to its full capacity, you might have to have HDTV. Because of that it might not do so well in its sales since most people do not have HDTV.

if u get the xbox 360 for $400 then u get an HD cable that makes it HD. yea it pumps like 56bliiion and xbox does 33.9billion. the xbox 360's graphics are better and it has more space so u can store more games. both are backwards compatible so u can play GTA and halo2. but i mainly want the 360 cuz of halo3.

im telling you guys revolution


Huh? You said that the PS3 can pump out more pixels thus you're saying it has better graphics. Then you say the xbox has better graphics. Anyway the PS3 is 100% backwards compatable like its PS2 predacessor, at least I think it is. I'm not sure about space but yeah, im pretty sure the xbox 360 can stor more. The xbox360 isn't 100% backwards compatable. From what I heard the Xbox360 can only play the "good" games as defined by Microsoft such as Halo2 on the xbox360.

What do you mean by HDTV cable? Don't you have to get a new TV for HDTV? Also not many are going to spend $400, they're probably gonna go for the $300. And if what you said is true about the xbox360's graphics being better than the PS3's then HDTV will be almost a necessity since to play the PS3 at full capacity you need HDTV and if the xbox360's graphics are better, without HDTV will be like crap capacity.

Yay! New page!

galen the ps3 has 56 billion something not nessarily pixels i might have read the article wrong. if it can only play the good games then microsoft needs to secify the games that it can play and so far they havent dont that other then halo2. lmao galen the 399 deal includes a wireless controller, an e-net cord for live, a faceplate where u can choose the color of ur xbox 360, a headset for xbox live, the HD cable, and the 20 gigabyte detachable hard drivewhich is worth 99 seperatly and it has the consule. the 299 one has the consule a wired controller and a regular cable connecting to the tv. galen if u look in my AIM profile there is a link that takes u to a site where they compare the specs of both consules. the ps3's controller is screwed up anyway its so long. anyway i'm starting school tommarow so i gotta sleep early. we can all agree the rev is gonna SUCK.

The $300 xbox360 will still cost you $400. It doesn't come with a memory card($40) or game ($50) but it comes with a standard AV cable the $400 360 comes with a HD-AV cable which if you don't have a HD TV or really new TV won't work and that 20 Gigabyte hard drive shouldn't be more then $30, $100 is flat extortion. The PS3 will also do HD output but looks to be $500 the lowest I saw was $465.

I can post It is just I have nothing to post about. There is nothing for me to say of importance until Eli makes a few posts/decisions.

Apples to Apples on Graphics?
The Xbox 360's ATI graphics core also throws a wrench into our graphics comparison since it uses a new-fangled Unified Shader Architecture that mixes up pixel- and vertex-pipelines and makes comparison to older video card technology very difficult. The Xbox 360 graphics core may have 48-pipelines, but we don't know how powerful they are compared to dedicated pixel and vertex pipelines.

The PlayStation 3 has a pretty strong Nvidia graphics processor, but you can see how Sony may be afraid of the specification sheet comparison by the pipeline number conveniently omitted from the PS3 graphics specifications. We're guessing that the RSX graphics processors has a traditional, non-unified shader engine, so it likely has a smaller total "pipeline" number than the ATI chip. Even if the RSX's normal pipelines are more powerful than the Xbox 360's pipes, Sony doesn't want to risk printing a lower "pipeline" number since people won't understand that it isn't an apples-to-apples comparison.

So how many traditional pipelines does the RSX have? Sony has revealed that the RSX GPU has a 550MHz core clock and has over 300 million transistors. Sony has also stated that the chip is more powerful than two GeForce 6800 Ultra cards put together. Your first guess might be that Nvidia simply doubled the pipeline number on the 6800 Ultra to make the RSX, but you also have to remember that the Ultra only clocked in at 400MHz. If the "double" performance measurement is based on fill-rate performance rather than hardware, the clock speed increase up to 550MHz is clear sign that the hardware improvement isn't from a pure doubling of pipelines. We're guessing that the actual pipeline count is going to be at 24, which is about right for 300 million transistors and, at 550MHz, has just a slightly larger fill-rate than two GeForce 6800 Ultras clocked at 400MHz. Since the GeForce Ultra had 6 vertex pipelines, the RSX likely has 6 more vertex pipes in addition to the 24 pixel pipelines.

that is the graphics part of the article.


i cant post the specs cuz it pastes it in a really weird format cuz it has a picture and i dont want to change the format or type the specs manually. galen was right the xbox 360 is backwards compatible but it says limited on it so yea. even without the HD cable its still a good deal cuz u get all that other stuff.

or do you

"Thats just what they want you to think"


Specs that only a 2% of the people understand don't mean a thing if the people clap for a tomb raider game. Software makes a system live not hardware. The xbox will only have 1080i while the Ps3 has 1080i and 1080p. So the PS3 should give you a smoother Image.

Dude, "this whole page" is less than two days long. That's because you three post 20 times a day and I have 30 new posts to read every single day I log on, and about 1-2 of them are relevant. Please keep all of the irrelevant posts off of here and if you have two different things to say, think ahead and put it all in one post. I come here every day and onoy post when I have something important to say. There's not exactly much opportunity for the rest of us to post with you guys generating 30 posts per day.

or is there

"Thats just what they want you to think"


Sravan, I've said it before, when you make these kinds of arguments, the only thing you're doing is working for the marketers. If you think they have the slightest clue which system is going to have the best games, or that they even care, you might as well just call Microsoft and Sony and ask them which console you should buy. You are just repeating their spiel, meaningless and misleading numbers that don't tell you anything about how good the games are going to be, how easy the system will be to develop for, or how quickly the installed base is going to grow. That's what's going to determine how successful a console will be, not polygons, or fill rate, or memory bandwidth, or storage capacity.

And I don't agree that the Revolution is going to suck, especially since nobody yet knows anything substantial about it. Plus, when Super Smash Brothers Revolution comes out, Sravan, are you telling me you won't want it?


When is online regestration going to start. Oh, Bad Driver invited me


They were never handsome and often came
with a hormone imbalance manifested by corpulence,
a yodel of a voice or ears big as kidneys.

But each was brave. More than once a sidekick
has thrown himself in front of our hero in order
to receive the bullet or blow meant for that
perfect face and body.

Thankfully, heroes never die in movies and leave
the sidekick alone. He would not stand for it.
Gabby or Pat, Pancho or Andy remind us of a part
of ourselves,

the dependent part that can never grow up,
the part that is painfully eager to please,
always wants a hug and never gets enough.

Who could sit in a darkened theatre, listen
to the organ music and watch the best
of ourselves lowered into the ground while
the rest stood up there, tears pouring off
that enormous nose.

any thoughts or comments on this poem?


its very strange...


it is titled "sidekicks", does that help?
i can't make out what the poet is trying to say in the last paragraph


at least i got the last comment on this blog.....
