GT Returns! Game & Plan Meetup and SSBM Regulation Tourney Tuesday!

AADL-GT Pad Logo

The off-season. Cold. Lonely. Lugubrious. Will it ever end? Of course it will, and there's no better evidence for this assertion than the upcoming GT Game & Plan Meetup and Super Smash Brothers Regulation Throwdown, Tuesday 2/26 starting at 3 PM at the Malletts Creek Branch. We'll start with a healthy dash of open play to shake out the melee cobwebs before getting into the big questions about the 2008 GT Season. Then, from 6 - 8:30, we'll have a Super Smash Bros. Melee Regulation throwdown for grades 6 and up. Don't miss these events; with the age of Melee drawing to a close, there's a lot to talk about for next season, and perhaps a parting farewell to the game that's enthralled us all for so long. See you tuesday!

Some of the things we need to talk about include which games we should use for next season's SmashKart series; go with the Wii versions, or stick with gamecube? Or some of each? Also, do we need changes to the clan system or scoring? Pools worked out pretty well this past season; are there things about the tournament formats that need tweaking? This is your chance to make your voice heard and influence the course of the AADL-GT for the better. Also, I've got some exciting news to cover about the future of the GT... so don't miss it! Hope to see you all there!

Speaking of the facebook group of long ago. I edited the recent news:

"Well, since we were just reminded of this old group, I might as well update the news again.
So it's time for the new season! This upcoming Tuesday at 3PM will be your chance to make an influence to the next set of AADL-GT events. I expect many players to be there for at least the Regulation throwdown that will be following at 6:30. I hope to see many of you. Bring ideas of what we could implement into the next tournament. Bring some changes. Or simply bring a vote. Your presence will simply be of help because it shows us who is really willing to make a change in their library.
Remember, Eli is working hard to spread the idea of library gaming. We are his example at how much of a success this campaign really is. The more teenagers who show up will help in his example with how other libraries should follow suit of this new trend.
Anyways I hope to see many people at the Regulation Throwdown and hopefully the Meeting.
Yours truly,
Evil Bus Driver"

why yes, i do.

also, do my eyes deceive me or is the regulation tourney really only awarding t-shirts D:


will no one answer my question T_T? I don't really wanna spend half the afternoon there if i dont have to :P


ohh i missed the online register...its been a while.


yes if u only wanna be there for the tourney come at 545ish

i think

p.s.- is open play going to be closed while the planning meeting is going on, i plan to be at the meeting but im also bringing a friend, first and most likely the last time he'll be going to an aadlgt so i dont want him to sit through the planning meeting when he doesnt want to

holder of the 12000th post and the STD post and holder of most superscope glitches performed in aadl matches, 3 to be exact and probably more next time


oo yea swordmaster took the words out of my mouth...in his p.s. question...lol. I got a friend comin too and I doubt he'll wanna sit through the planning meeting.


going to try to make that meeting tommorow
see you guys there
Eli an estimation on when the meeting begins?


OK, to answer some questions; there will be open play from 3-6 PM. Those who don't want to talk about next season don't have to. We'll probably start the meeting around 4:30. The tournament will be only be double elimination if time allows, but it will be no-items and neutral stages, all that crap. I have managed to come up with $30, $20 and $10 giftcards to target for prizes.

There will also be a reporter there from the NY Times, who is doing a story about gaming in the library. Give her some good quotes, and you might get your name in the Times! Hope to see you all there!


This is exactly why I say we should have as many people come to these events as possible. We get this kind of attention.
ChooChooFace says: We need more Rock Band and rhythm games.

[gtlogo:RED]


Evil Bus Driver: Tell Kevin (and yourself) that I'm going to be bringing Rock Band today. It's 5 hours or so of solid rocking out. It's going to be good times.

*sigh* i guess i'll come to this


lol Im sure you were. But the tournament before the grands in singles I got you down to one stock with 90% as samus ;]


swordmaster knows all about gettin owned by doc...lol


That wuz an awsum meeting! I knew lain had it in him o.O I'm looking forward to the events this summer! Since turtleperson2, lain, d-rex & others graduated, that leaves some open space for me to be #1!!! Thank u for everything, eli!

P.S. I cant find the scoreboard from 2005's championships! I wonder...
*note* Angus = Lachlan


D-rex is not a senior and Angus is that your player name because I have never heard of you as far as AADL-GT regular season tourtaments go


and once again, everyone goes home knowing that i'm better then them. hahaha. jkjk XD

i hope eli has more regulation tournaments...

also, who were those "new" guys? i think riley brought them with him? the falcon and falco players, i think they were brothers? haha.


bad driver i have no idea why my name is angus it should be lord of the shrooms -_- i must have gotten d-rex confused with someone else. Who has graduated anyway, cuz i have no idea: im only in 6th grade! lol also im looking forward 2 brawl, whether its in the tournaments or not. if its a disappointing game, what is the next big "attraction" game? kart 4 wii? not a chance


alright that works
and as far as i know TP2 and Lain were the only big players graduating.


that was haja and Andry there really good at melee and even better at cart

holder of the 12000th post and the STD post and holder of most superscope glitches performed in aadl matches, 3 to be exact and probably more next time


even BETTER at kart? scary haha.

Seriously tho, they were cool guys and great players.


omega- hay everyone! so i see we have another pair of good brothers aahh. Mabye they can continue the legacy of good brothers. examples- Turtle people, Royster brothers, And D-rex and his bro.


hey, we missed u 2 on the blog... if u had mad it to the turi u could have taken another win!


what were the placing at the tourney Lain won correct?


shin and omega you missed my brother and i......... and rj and mojo, theyre brothers too

rj placed 2nd and mojo placed 3rd, rj beat haja and mojo beat hajas brother in brackets

holder of the 12000th post and the STD post and holder of most superscope glitches performed in aadl matches, 3 to be exact and probably more next time


omega- everyone ready to start out fresh. For smash Bros brawl and THe new cart!


the thing is im already good at brawl

holder of the 12000th post and the STD post and holder of most superscope glitches performed in aadl matches, 3 to be exact and probably more next time


true dat....yea illg et my wii code in a bit but now i gotz to run when i get bak ill post it.


no you're not good at brawl.

in fact, no one is good at brawl. NO ONE. it hasn't even come out in the US. everything hasn't been "felt out" and discovered. metagames haven't been formed yet. no one.

also, brawl is not a reset for the one millionth time. tech skill is dumbed down to make it a bit more.... "accessible"... but spacing and the often misunderstood concept of "mindgames" is still basically the same across the board. people who were good at melee will have the bigger advantage against people not as good as they were in melee. but they're still bad.

the end.


im good compared to everyone else is wat i meant

holder of the 12000th post and the STD post and holder of most superscope glitches performed in aadl matches, 3 to be exact and probably more next time


yes, yes you are.

your lucas is sort of the best ever


yea limabean is to intense... i would not be suprised if he tops the meaters in the next season.


i just got a wii, one week before brawl, just in time yeah yeah yeah

whoever wants my wii# msg me on facebook, names rainier galinato, saline high school

if you want mine message me on facebook or email.... johninabox123@yahoo.com

this goes for anyone so feel free to ask.


I don't entirely understand why Nintendo won't let people use their gamer tags instead of numbers. I know that beneath any online system everyone is identified by numbers, but I'd rather think of myself as TurtlePerson2 than 09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0.

Oh, and sorry that I couldn't make it to the planning meeting, but I had to work.

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


yeah i know geez id have the awesomest gamertag ever

hopefully next season i'll be in a good clan, especially if i improve my tactics over the summer. i was lucky when i got 4th in kart in the first tournament, but next year it will be by intension (i hope)! I might even be able to do Rock Band next season as well, but unfortunately i need to learn the lyrics to most of the songs (boo hiss). I still love the Blitzkreig Bop.
anyway, everyone should be excited about brawl's release (tell me immediately if i'm wrong) i'm just worried that 1) daylight savings time will screw things up, and 2) if they hold back the date AAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIN to debug the game or whatever. i haven't written any text for a few days, so... o_- i think that there's three days and about 2 hours left. joy.


im getting in line first at the one on washtenaw.... at 12:00.01 im getting it ill be home at 12:15 and play till skool starts at 7:00 on monday. when i get back from school ill play online if any1 wants to battle me.


the funny thing is... were gettin brawl but we don't have a wii!


i would do that if i didnt have a wii...

ne ways, shin and omega what kinda plans do you 2 have for next season?

and would you 2 and limabean like to compine with d-rex myself and another?


Yeah the tournys at gamestop are gonna suck the one at get your game on will be 10x better. and Ive been waiting for brawl for a while but im not desperate enough to get it at 12 am, especially at gamestop (nubfest). The gamestop tourney rules are only starting characters, random characters, random stages, 1 minute round time. While get your game on has every character a huge tv every stage and u can pick wat stage and 3 stock btw. Nice accurate count down time btw john, only 1 day 8 hours and 40 minutes left till brawl.


i have no seconds in mine lol it sounds less epic.


loled i cant w8!!!!!

im gonna be the first on at the gamestop on washtenaw and huron parkway to get it BELIVE IT!!!!!


nice im gonna get it at the gamestop next to wal mart at like 10 am.


sorry about my mistake in time... i wuz 1 whole day off! i forgot that it comes out on the first second of sunday... derr. no one probably cares anyway i just want the game in my hands by the end of the month. seriously, what's so exciting about getting it at the first 5 seconds into the day? getting to rub it in everyone's face? That's just really strange... *~*
also i remember at one of the tournaments on Mario Circuit i wuz just about to finish first when TP2 + 5 other players plowed into me. i got 7th. what a heart-warming memory


hahaha not bad but ill beat that... i was gonna go camp out tonight but the snow that might get us is gonna make me go tomorrow afternoon like 5-7 ish
then stay there till it is 12:01


2 me this isn't a race just so u know.


im gonna go to bed around 12 maybe 1 than wake up at 9 and have breakfast and than go to get brawl and play all day.


noobzor.. no sleep 4 me.


what's the point of getting brawl early when you'll never progress past being mediocre at it anyway. like melee. hint hint. You have all the time in the world being average.


looolz tooo good RJ, and yes i know that can be towards me too >.>

and the get your game on tourney is melee and gamestop is brawl......so idk what ur talking about thesoviet

yeah but now i can play all day with out being tired =p


its melee? 0_0 really? everyone told me its brawl.....


what time does the... thing start at gamestop? Youre all crazed 2 see who can get the game first, and RJEs right whats the point if you arent going 2 get anywhere on the first day anyway? i mean yeah its exciting but youre still going 2 get nowhere. by the way who do you really think are the new "Fox" and "Marth" in brawl? My bets still on Snake, and Sonic too. Chi*2 says Ike, but he's probably gonna luze 2 Snake. It'll be sooooooooooooo hysterical
