Super Smash and Kart Tournaments: This Weekend!

AADL-GT: Ann Arbor District Library Game Tournaments

The action heats up this weekend, with our first-ever Open Super Smash Bros: Melee tournament, inviting all players ages 13 and up to come and fight against the best SSB:M players in the area for a shot at giftcard prizes: $40 for 1st place, $30 for 2nd, and $20 for 3rd. Doors open Friday night at 6:00 PM in the Downtown Library Multipurpose Room, and the Tournament will start after 6:30. The format will be 2 or 3 stock, 4-player battles, with all items and stages enabled, earning points for wins, with the highest scorers moving on to elimination brackets. Registration is now open.

Then, on Saturday, we've got AADL-GT Round 3, from Noon - 5 PM at the Downtown Library, including Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart Single-player and Team Events. Doors open at 11:30, and Preregistration is open now. Winners of each event advance to the Sur-Prize round,, where they'll play a MYSTERY GAME to determine who will take home the $70, $50, and $30 gift cards.

This round's commentary teams will be:

Melee: Tom & Leinad
Backup: Muffincat, Mouse

Kart: Joe S & Sravan
Backup: Duck, Pickwick the Second

Surprise Round: Tom & Leinad
Backup: Joe S, Sravan, Pickwick, Duck, Muffincat, Mouse, depending on who is still around

Only two commentators at a time. We will have a separate, quiet commentary booth this time, with 8 screens on which to watch the uninterrupted action and comment on it accordingly, with real commentator headsets and everything. It should be a big improvement.

Questions? Let me have 'em!

Comments

Oh, goody; I get the first post! Thanks, Eli!
Not, of course, that I have anything interesting or useful to say; I would like merely to comment briefly on one or two subjects.

It has just come to my attention that I am a candidate for substitute announcer; I am honoured by this distinction, and shall attempt to do my best if called upon, though I must warn you, Your Majesty: as my prestigious and redoubtable co-nominee, the Right Honourable Sir Ducksalot, may, if it be his will, confirm, I tend to speak with less clarity and volume than those[[or that? it's too early for my internal grammar processor to function...]] with which I write. This is not to say that I cannot, or will not, perform the function admirably, especially now that you have notified me well in advance so as to allow for certain (or uncertain) preparations and practice.

I do, however, have one question: Will the competition on Friday be worth points that are applicable toward the greater series of tournaments?

Good Luck to all!
---------Pickwick the Second---------


Excellent, Pickwick, I hope you enjoy it. The friday Melee tournament will not count towards your overall score.


I can't register a kart team. I got a DB syntax error.

Why are you posting before 3 AM?

well if the doors open only at 6pm then i might as well come on the late bus so i'll be there around 5:45. yay i get to commentate with joe!

[gtlogo:TMC]


Ummm, one thing... Is there any way we can switch the commentary teams so Leinad and I do Kart? Or is this pretty much set in stone? I don't know about Leinad, but I know that I don't know as much about melee as I do about Kart. If that's the only thing I can do, then I can handle melee, it'll just take a few battles for me to get into the swing of it.

And yay for all of the new comentary equipment, especially the headsets. Also, can we make some sort of provision that NOBODY can interrupt the commentators while they are commntating, because that was a real problem last time.

Also, for future consideration, we should switch up the pairings, at least for the two main events. I.E.: Tom & Joe, Sravan & Leinad or vice versa. That would be fun, rather than having one clan for one event.

What the right after I go to bed you guys start posting.

Having rival clans commentate togather is a great idea. It would give the (few) viewers different views.

Well I didn't think I did that great of job as a commentators but I see Galen and Moses didn't get in. I'll have to tell mouse and muffincat that they are commentating.

Wow, the last couple posts all have interesting times. 2:22, 7:11, 7:27 did you guys plan that.

Eli, come on, how come I'm not commentating this time? I'm still happy though. 3 days! Then more fun the next day!

Giggity Giggity Giggity, Alllllll Right!


You're not commentating because Eli didn't think you were good enough. Frankly, I agree with him. You were too bland.

I agree with Tom that I know more about Kart than Melee. On the other hand, I'd love a shot at melee commentating. I'm fine with the sets as they stand now I guess. I think that switching the pairs up is a good idea. But me and Tom work well together, so I'd like to keep that pairing for at least some.

Anyways, I absolutely love that commentary will be quiet and away. That makes me beyond happy :-) :-) :-) :-D :-D !!!! :-D

He could have been much worse Sravan. I found Moses' comments to be very broad and unrefined.

Is this format with SSBM being the earlier of the featured games set in stone for future competitions??

Just wondering, since I would rather not miss archery on saturday mornings for the next couple of months.

I don't think I'm going to make it to either SSBM competition this month :( (my main partner is busy, in addition to preferring archery)


will there be a consulation prize like a t-shirt for the melee only tournament. being the 4th best means something!

[gtlogo:TMC]


I was thinking the same thing Tom. The question is which team gets which name.

Mayb I should commentate be the TC rep. Eli can you make the voice deeper because if am commentating with a high schooler I'll sound like a little kid (well i guess comparitlevly I am) Or mayb a pre schooler who just woke up from naptime.LOL
Sweet I can come to the melee tourtament except I don't like melee as much as MarioKart Eli "The Awesome one" may I request a middle school MarioKart touney

Good news and bad news..
I am going to the gt. Obviously I am happy for this.
On the other hand, I cant show up to the SSBM tourney until 7:30. So I will be at SSBM tourney. But... mostly to cheer on my clan and my fellow clans (Vaccinated Monks "represent"-Major Tom).
So, see you all at the tourney.

P.S.
We got a few new recruits that ill get their sinature down at the gt or the SSBM tour:
Green Jeans
and uhh.... a few more that I forget their names right now.


I think I will be the only Vaccinated monk there. I think there is a pioneer football game so Tom, Leinad, and Beebles all are in band.

Why is the tournament under Adults?

uhh ok? I guess Ill b cheering on The Reds, Duck, and Green Jeans.

My computer still returns an error message when I attempt to sign up for teams; is this true for others?

ummmmmmm...yeah....i agree with tom...BUT
Eli-sorry u didnt get to reading my post...I'm not gonna be able to go to the tournament this saturday cuz its my mom's bday celebration.
I would be more than happy to commentate for the next one since theres nothing going on in my life then...That is unless i make hockey in which case i will be able to look at my schedule and inform you if i will be able to attend.
sravan-soory i cant commentate with u that woulda been sweet.
moses-u dont represent quagmire in any way shape or form sooooo dont try to say gigidy.

I like futurama better then family guy. south park is stupid and simpsons are classic. i'll just commentate with galen then he hasent been on this blog in a while cuz hes playing counter strike a lot. duck its under adults cuz its for ppl also over 18. we could do the mixed commentating thing i don't mind but i know more melee then mkdd and they know more mkdd then melee so maybe we should switch if its ok with eli. yay we're actually gonna do 1v1s!

is it the top 8 clans or top 4 clans cuz it should be the top 4. 8 is too big a number.

also joe did danny f. go to greenhills for high school or middle school for a year cuz one of my friends at the party reconized him.
[gtlogo:TMC]


From my understanding, I thought the Friday Melee even was going to be individuals only.

Will there be teams as well? If so.....I'll need a teammate.


o yea eli u said there will be more then one event? will it be team cuz i have a partner.

[gtlogo:TMC]


Good Morrow!
It seems, as read from the options available on the Registration page, as though the Friday competition is to be based on a single-combatant paradigm. The Saturday event is, of course, to be all four variations. The team sign-up function does not, however, seem to be operational quite yet.
Good Luck!
--------Pickwick the Second---------


Yes yes we all knowthe Team signup has a syntax error. I would guess it has something to do with the code Database since it says DB.

"Round up the usual suspects."
[gtplayer:139]
[gtlogo:VMC]


Good Morrow!
Quite so, indeed; I was merely responding to Sravan's query regarding the availability of team battles on Friday.
Good Luck!
---------Pickwick the Second---------


I think Eli put the commentators with Tom and Leinad on Melee and Sravan on MKDD because there is a better chance that those people will be sitting in the commentator booth longer with said event instead of then the other event. Also while you guys don't know everything about the game you certainly know quiet a bit more then most people.

We are doing top 8 clans because frankly it's more fun that way. 4 clans limits it to who can win tournaments.

[gtplayer:139]

Good Morrow!
A question addressed to all experienced commentators: What, precisely, is one who is to fit into this role to say? Thanks to the well-appreciated efforts of the Noise Machine, I was unable to hear a single word last month. Methinks it was good planning on Eli's part to pair me with a veteran... Duck, may I request your advice and/or aid tomorrow?
Good Luck!
---------Pickwick the Second---------
Edit: Oops, grammatical error!


Good Morrow!
Why is there no one else on the forum? It seems as though you all disappear after midnight, except, occasionally, Eli.
Good Luck!
---------Pickwick the Second---------


Good Morrow!
Duck, I'm going to follow your advice and try to do without caffeine today; you may have to wake me up when you go to Analysis. Just a heads-up.
Good Luck!
-----Pickwick the Second-----


y are u pulling all nighters on school nights. eli said in an email that he wanted to do more then 1 event cuz more ppl get into the prize round if we do it like the mkdd ones last year. maybe we will make teams at the tournament cuz not everyone will show. well if we're doing the top 8 then the 4 last place clans will get owned anyway. again i will be there with a paper and pencil to record the 3 clans' scores. they are the ones that actually count. turtle clan, vaccinated monks, and troube monkeys. just out of curiosity duck what character does that stuck up guy that u want me to beat use in melee?

Eli - I accidentally registered for the Melee tournament on Friday which I will not be attending. How do I fix this?

"Faulheit ist eine Tugend"
[gtlogo:VMC]


a pansee i presume as well. leinad i guess u dont show up but if u do that then 3 ppl will have a 3 player battle and thats not good. at the august tournament everyone used swordsman but in the september one lots of ppl used fox and falco. they didn't know how to use them though.

[gtlogo:TMC]


I dont know about the rest of your computers, but the team signup was just fine for me.

Ok they fixed the Team Registration. Tom and Leinad I just signed up with Tom for both events we can change it at the tournament if we want to.

"Round up the usual suspects."
[gtplayer:139]
[gtlogo:VMC]


sravan i should just sign up with galen now right? if so what should the team name be?

"The false face must hide what the false heart doth know."


Well, we were originally planning on going the other way, but we'll talk about it tomorrow at school.

Also, it's too bad that Joe S. can't come, he would've been a good commentator. Bad Driver, it's not really possible to lower your voice any without really, really expensive equipment that the library doesn't have and doesn't have a need to have.

Eli, who are we going to get to replace Joe? My first vote would be for Duck, and my next would be for Galen. Somewhere down the line would be Muffincat, then Mouse. Way down at the bottom, past the lawyers, the lawyers' laywers, would be Black Shark.

And yes, Beebles and I won't be able to make it to the Friday SSBM tournament because of the stupid Pioneer/Huron game that night. Stupid football, what good is it anyways? It's just an excuse for muscular guys to hit eachother over and over again. Hockey is a much better sport.

Hey Pickwick, I actually like your idea of having coffee fueled all-nighters. Since I leave for school friday at 6 am, I wont be home until midnight because of a very long party after the ssbm tourney, I might as well pull an all nighter practicing for the gt.

chiokee we'll figure it out at the tournament but yea i guess u can pre register u and galen for melee first and u guys will be trouble monkeys and we will be trouble monkeys 2. i'm thinking of a better name then trouble monkeys 2 and having it more halo 2 related. im gonna pre register with darksoul for melee.

[gtlogo:TMC]


Team registration is now functioning, indeed. Thanks for finding the bug.

Also, two new features for this weekend:

1) A self-checkin station for pre-registrants to speed your way past the registration line and into the open play before the SSBM tourney. SO PRE-REGISTER!

2) A new display in the gaming room with a continually updated scroll of the current event's leaderboard. No more leaning over geeks' laptops to see who's tops in qualifying.

P.S. As a Huron alumnus (class of '95, thank you very much), I must disagree with the assessment that the "River Rat is a horrible mascot for Huron though"... Know your History!

/*== ejk ==*/


Hey, I already know my history.
I just dont like being called a "Rat" because when I am, it is usually used as an insult. Its not that I hate it. Id just rather have something a little different because "Rat" is kind of used as a strong word.

Well, it's nice that the students actually cared about something that much (that would never happen these days, most of the students would just skip the class where you'd have to vote), so it's nice to see that sometime in the history of the universe, people our age could get together on something other than legalizing marijuana.

And I'm not saying that Pioneer has a better mascot, we don't. We just have a better marching band. Huron's march style is quite laughable. Pioneer Bands pwn Huron bands. To the max.

...

Like DANG.

Also, for a long time now, whenever I click on the "Vaccinated Monks" link in my Player Information thingy on the aadlgt board, it sends me to a page that lists our four members, but the logo is borken. Is there any way to fix that? It's not that important, just one of those little things that will nag you until you implode.

Good Morrow!
It would be much appreciated by that individual to whom I commonly refer by using the perpendicular pronoun, were any of those eminent persons with experience in the field of commentating to provide aid and assistance; I am rather worried about Saturday. Should I look up multitudes of obscure facts to bring up in conversation, or should I focus on what occurs on the screen?

Yes, there is a Void Reaper Librarian in Warhammer.

I would second the opinion that Pioneer's marching band is superior to any in other in the area.

Of course, I'm not exactly impartial.


Sorry, as much as Pioneer rocks, Saline has a pretty pimpin marching band. But Pioneer's is still the purplest. :-)

pimpin and marching band don't go together. good that we have a fast pre registration line. maybe monkeyman if u give a tryout like joe. where is this seperate room with the commentators and 8 monitors gonna be? in my school we are the gryphons but at least its better then river rats. lots of ppl want it changed to the greenhills lawnmowers lol.

PS river rats really suck. and i will tell you why.
The Story of Huron High.
Way back when, Pioneer high was named Ann Arbor high. Their mascot was the Pioneers. One day some liberal person in congress decided they needed a second high school. They wanted to then put it in the middle of nowhere, in which only 5 ppl lived at. People made fun of those 5 people who went to Huron by being called "river rats" since they were quite near the huron river. These 5 ppl were not the brightest of all, so they thought the ann arbor high kids were laughing WITH them. These 5 ppl then decided that river rats must be a slang for someone cool, so they made that their mascot. Generations after blindly continued this tradition without thinking that any kind of rat is frowned upon by all. Then Ann Arbor high had to change their name to Pioneer so that it did not sound superior to Huron High even though it already was.

I think Joe just hit the nail right on the head there, so to speak. And even though Saline's marching band may be pretty cool, Pioneer's is still the best in the area (you traitor :-P).

At last, a World Series worth watching. The White Sox haven't been there in God knows how long (though it might be because they don't know how to spell their name), and the Astros have never been. I'm really glad the Yankees didn't make it in. You know why? Because I hate the Yankees. I hate the Yankees almost as much as I hate... Well, I'm not sure, but the point is that I REALLY hate the Yankees.

Also, to answer Pickwick's comment (though I'm not quite sure who it was directed to), my general rule that I use (that I've come up with during the, oh, 2 times that I've commentated), is to mainly focus on the action on the screen, but if you come up with some interesting tidbit, or there is a break in the action, then you can go off on a short tangent, assuming it doesn't take a whole hour for you to complete a thought. (Let's just all pray his commentary is shorter than his comments on here, hmm? :-P)

Once again, I am quite angry that I won't be able to make it tomorrow night, I hope everybody has a lot of fun. Go Duck, Sravan, and anyone else who I like.

Oh, and beat that one guy who's over 18 for me. Show him how real players roll in Super Smash Bros.

It's the same story as yankee doodle.
If you don't know that story that makes you unpatriotic which is okay in Ann Arbor, but not so much in other places.
Joe I doubt you would know this, but the new high school is being built in the middle of no where. Huron was built for easy access to U of M because, more people from Huron go to U of M they wanted to make them close together. They put Pioneer near the football stadium because, that is the only way Pioneer people go to U of M.

Greetings!
I am not currently in possession of the affiliations associated with membership in a clan, but would like to participate in the team competitions in DoubleDash and Melee this Saturday.
Also worthy of note:
I was referred to the confederation by Pickwick, and it is most highly and urgently (!!) recommended that he be awarded excessive, unparalleled and unprecedented, veritable bushels of points for this most noble and charitable act of service.

"We look forward to hearing your vision, so we can more better do our job. That's what I'm telling you."

Good Morrow!
Thank you, Major Tom! I promise to be among those to beat the specified entrant into the competition.
Regarding pr0's request: It is certainly a distinct possibility that I may be accompanied by the memory card which has the distinct honour of belonging to me; there is one question, however, which perplexes me. For what purpose is this to be done?? I realise it is somewhat late to pose this question, and, should you not be able to reply ere 11:30, I shall, of course, comply with your request.
"Hey Pickwick, I actually like your idea of having coffee fueled all-nighters." Good Heavens!!!!!!!!! Well, I must inform you that my observations of my mental state after performing three of the said all-nighters in one week, almost consecutively, have led me to the belief that it is not a good idea to deliberately perform said function on a school night; I will allow you to form your own judgment on the wisdom of doing so on any other night. In brief, some examples of my experiences with total lack of sleep for an extended period of time: A tendency to fall asleep with hand and head in air, while in the process of actively taking notes; A tendency to view the world, and everything in it, as being slightly unsteady and constantly shifting up and to the right; A tendency to wander, midsentence, in your notes without noticing(to this day, I wonder as to the meaning of 'braccgren', a 'word' taken from my Analysis notes; A tendency toward irritability and overt hostility toward any other being; and a tendency to vot...(or perhaps not, at least on this forum). You must remember, this was my state of being while caffeinated; I shudder to think of the result should I have missed my cup(s) of coffee in the morning. In conclusion, I have been sufficiently alarmed by the result of my experiences with lack of sleep that I have determined on going to sleep before midnight regardless of any task(s) I have not completed (Until, of course, the Robotics Build Season, which, to use a cliched phrase, is 'a whole other story.') So: take my advice and learn from my example! (I hope you weren't being sarcastic, because that would remove the whole point of this portion of my post.)
As to Major Tom's point of concern, rest assured, that I am not nearly so prolix through a verbal medium as I am in writing; I am used to this method of communication, wherein one may edit one's remark until it is perfectly tailored to the occasion for which it is required before submitting it for the inspection of all. Thus, it is my worry that I shall not be verbose enough, rather than the contrary. Your advice is much appreciated.
I have invited an acquaintance of mine, Finklestein, to the competition tomorrow and the one on Saturday; he has posted already, but I wished to acknowledge his existence, the truth of pr0's statement regarding him, and the undeniable merits of his injunction to award me many points. Duck has, I believe, a passing acquaintance with him that may never have involved the exchange of words or introductions.
With that,
Good Luck!

Seems that every1 likes the idea of me dressing up, I guess I will. Look for the Scout Trooper at the gt and maybe the SSBM Tourney.

As for you Duck, I will bring the extra badges. In an earlier post I said:
250 pixels length
179 pixels width

I, for once had found a slight issue for this. It needed to be a bit smaller so I made them:
235 pixels length
168 pixels width

The only problem is that I had already printed them out in the bigger size so I just have to deal with that.

Good Luck!

PS: I would like to go on the record as saying that the new high school is to be located in one of the most eminent and distinguished regions of Ann Arbor; namely, within half a mile of my house.

Pickwick don't worry about Evil Bus Driver being sleep deprived he like myself goes to Cons and knows all to well the tricks and problems with sleep deprivation. Oh and you (Pickwick) will do fine as a commentator.

Evil bus driver thanks for the specs.

Good Morrow!
What, precisely (or imprecisely), are/is 'Cons'?
Gracias! Are you at all nervous yourself, or do you feel prepared?
Good Luck!

With Cons I am referring to Conventions namely the ones devoted to sci-fi, anime, fantasy and gaming. They have an interesting time schedule with planed activities starting as early as 8am and going as late as 4am or so. Plus with free pop and snacks there basically are really large parties that last a whole weekend.

Oh yes your second question. No I'm not nervous. Even though I haven't practiced much I probably practiced more then most people. Plus I know I can win stuff and have commentated before. But you should do fine at both the competition and the commentating.

I was just wondering if anybody was interested in throwing together a super smash brothers tournament for the older N64 version? I haven't had a chance to get really into Melee yet, but I am killer at the old version. Let me Know what you think.


And even though Saline's marching band may be pretty cool, Pioneer's is still the best in the area (you traitor :-P).

if Leach won't let me march, then I'm only supporting the band 99% in protest instead of 100%.

Saline has a seperate marching band from regular band so, 1) They're made up of only people who want to march 2) I could have marched every game since freshman year at Saline (unless I didn't make it until the next year, I'm not sure how auditions work).

TP2- please stop talking. That is the story exactly how it happened and pioneer was built first so u dont make sense. Huron is more close to the hospital and wcc. Pioneer is located much more close to the university AND stadium. You just dont make sense. I dont like hearing ppl not make sense. And IDGAF if the new school is in the middle of nowhere...their mascot will probably be the highway hobos or frog lovers or something like that since they are near a highway and their schools supposed to house lots of frogs on the roof. They suck too for these reasons.

Pioneer is the sweetest.

sravan-was it a varsity field hockey game?

Wow I was beat by the kid that came in 2nd. The kid that came in 2nd got pwned by peach. It was the most one side battle i've seen in a while. My first match had Hank (the first place winner) in it and we both got bad scores thanks to IM and sudden death.

EDIT:
Nice job everyone for beating up alokin. He really wasn't as good as he thought he was, he was only on my level and I get beat up my several people. Yes I have more points almost to 4k.

If there was an award for being the highest person without a prize than I would have one it all three tournaments I've been to this season. Argh!

The guy who beat me was incredible I don't know how he didn't get first. At least I beat Pickwick.

Duck it's not a hidden chamber. Furthermore people would see you going in and out and realize where it is.

Quite Turtle Person IT'S a hidden chamber if I want it to be. Plus it has a lock so we can lock people out.

EDIT:
Evil bus driver these badges are perfect. I don't have to scale down at all.

God that idiot still thinks he is the best. I doesn't even know that peach when used right completely owns Link, even if the link player is amazing. He is trying to play off losing to me as "oh I wasn't trying". Stubborn idiot.
