AADL-GT Season Opener: This Saturday!

Mon, 08/15/2005 - 8:55pm by eli

This weekend marks the start of the 2nd AADL-GT Tournament Season for grades 6-12, with the opener starting at Noon Saturday, 8/20/2005, at the Downtown Library. This event will be broadcast LIVE on Comcast channel 18, from Noon-5 PM.

Because the event will be televised, you will need to bring this release form, signed by your parent or guardian, or you won't be able to play! Don't forget it! If you participated in last season's Grand Championships and already turned in a release form, you don't need to do it again.

AADL-GT Season 2 will include single-player and team events in Mario Kart: Double Dash race mode, and Super Smash Brothers 2-stock battle. The prize round will be a mystery game, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize round winners take home $70, $50, and $30 giftcards respectively.

Registration for this event will open Wednesday Night, 8/17/2005. You will be able to register your handle, sign up your teams, and create your clans.

Creating a clan will involve entering the four nicknames of your 4 primary clan members. Clans must have exactly 4 primary members. At each tournament, for your clan to score points, you must roster exactly 4 players, and at least 1 of those 4 must be a primary clan member. You can get subs to fill out the other spots. Subs can only be primaries of other clans if their clan is not rostering at that tournament. While it's in your best interest to figure out who your subs will be ahead of time, there will be time at the beginning of the event to come up with clan subs.

Bonuses will be awarded to clans for recruiting players that didn't play last season. These bonuses will be applied AFTER each tournament is over, and won't be included when determining the clan winner of each tournament.

If you have a clan logo, email it to axis@aadl.org, and I will upload it for you after your clan has registered.

Any questions? Now's the time. Hope you've been practicing, the competition is going to be intense.

joe and derek tell me ur nicknames if we have to do nicknames. i'll be the pr0.

i totally agree with chioke if ur good at melee u gotta use marth. i use fox cuz he is just so fast-now u see him now u dont lol. well bad driver i guess u could team up with a guy who doesnt want to be ur sub but wants to be ur team mate i mean whats the point of that. if he wants to be ur team mate then he should get points for ur clan. chioke first u used marth and then u used falco cuz u said i would out run u with fox and now u are using marth again. but yea marth,falco,fox,link,dr.mario,mario are all extremely good characters.

i think we should take a poll. who thinks that we should do 1v1 for the elimination rounds if we have more time. i know i do. 1-yes 0-no

So I don't need the release form. And what if one of my primary players can't make it this Sat. Is it okay 2 use my sub in his place. My clan has 4 other players who didn't play last year. Do I get bonus points?

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"

noah-u have to make the members show up at the tournament. if they havent shown up before then they count as new. sorry noah but ur other 3 players were in the wild card tournament in december i belive. ur new guy however once u bring him in u get the bonus of 101. eli u are ok with me and duck being commentators correct?

Wait! Teddy, Leo, Nick, or Adam, 3 of those 4 guys have been playing b4? And why can't I commentate?! Where is my logo!?

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"

Do you have 5 members in your clan black shark.

We have to have exactly 4 members! Well that is eee.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

I have 5 members in my clan. But one of them can't make it. So can I sign the one who can't make it or do I have to sign in the one who was suppose 2 be the "intentional (or planned) sub" and not sign the one who will be on vacation by the time of the tournament. Answer me!
[img_assist|fid=123|thumb=1|alt=Black Shark Clan]

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"

noah first of all ur logo looks freaky. second duck he didnt change the rules we will do free for all in the piliminary rounds but the elimination rounds will be 1v1. and third i love the commentating idea but i want to make a list of the ppl who will actually commentate and this could be an order of the ppl.
duck,me,galen,noah,muffincat,omid,miniblin,baddriver and anyone else. but i think we shouldnt let new player commentate not to be sterio type but i think we vetrans know more background on the games then them. assume there are 35 ppl there then we have 3 ppl left who arent playing melee. if none or one of them are vetrans then the new ppl can commentate. flare u are a vetran i belive u went to the wildcard tournament and ur name was Val.

Chioke, I think Mr. Chockums is way better. Just my $.02.

And Sravan, as Duck said, there is no way that Kart or Melee will be a surprise round game. What would be surprising about that?

Thank you eli youre the only decent person on this stie so your 2 cents counts as 100%/ and it would be surpising because you keep saying that it wont be in the surprize round

"if it didnt hurt how would i know if it worked"-sparksmith

yea u probably would kill me if i was marth so i will stick to my old character. flare what do u think of my predictions. and how do u only sleep for 8 hours i slept at 2 and woke up at 11.

lol ur right. it must be the cafeen. i have 2 liter bottles of mountain dew and i finished 1 in 3 days lmao. i guess tommarow i should set an alarm for like 8 and the same day i will sleep at like 10 or 11. but if i keep this up and wake up at 11 each day but sleep at 2 then i would be fresh for the tournament cuz i slept for 9 hours and the tournaments in 1 hour.... duck did u read my post on the other blog?

"He's smart for a goblin he can do two things:hit and run"

[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

in this post im gonna rank all of the melee characters into teirs. the lower the tier the better the character. Tier1:fox,falco,marth,dr.mario,mario,link.( yea i bet a lot of ppl will disagree)
Tier2:ice climbers,ness,sheik,zelda,samus,gannondorf,C.falcon,young link,DK,roy,bowser,pikachu,mr.game and watch
Tier3:pichu,jigglypuff,kirby,mewtwo,luigi(he has like no traction)
i think i got everyone but i think that maybe falcon should be in tier 1 cuz he is the fastest character in the game.im also thinking bowser should be demoted cuz his attacks are sooooooo slow. what do u guys think?

"You know how people say we only use 10% of our brains i think we only use 10% of our hearts"

eli do u like my idea for the clan cup where wach player is ranked 1-4 where 1 is the best and 4 is the worst. then when we play melee all 1's can play eachother and all 2's etc. if we have 5-7 clans then u can work it out because u do that all the times at the torunaments where u have an odd number of players.

the elimination round for single melee is still 1v1 correct?

Nah, Sravan, that's not how I envision it happening. We'll see as the season goes on.

yeah u should put bowser down but keep falcon where he is because its to easy to kill yourself using raptor boost

"The imp unaware of its own oder,paused to cacth his breath....and promptly died"

In reply to by TheKoolAidGuy

I oppose having it be 1v1.

This is the tier list based on win and losses in melee tournaments by the top players. They play by differnt rules then us but they don't have a huge time problem. do not bother auguing if you think your character is better then another prove it in melee tournaments.
Top Tier
Sheik
Fox
Marth

Upper Tier
Peach
Falco
C. Falcon
Samus

High Tier
Jigglypuff
Dr. Mario
Ganondorf
Mario
Ice Climbers

Middle Tier
Luigi
Link
Roy
DK
Pikachu
Zelda

Lower Tier
Ness
Young Link
Yoshi
Kirby
Mr. Game & Watch
Bowser

Bottom Tier
Mewtwo
Pichu

How could you put the ice climbers at the high tier? I beat flare with the ice climbers and sravan a couple of times.
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

This tier system takes only the best players to rank the characters. You have to be in the top 5% to be monentered. If we had anyone that was of that level in the tournament no one else could toch them. A pichu played by one the players that they monator could beat marth across the floor.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

duck which top players are these ppl. how is peach in the higher teir so is so slow she can only float. flare sorry but galen never pansees thats what john durski did. it must be a gift eli.

"You know how people say we only use 10% of our brains i think we only use 10% of our hearts"
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

ness is only good in team battles in free for all he will get pwned. u can be cheap with DK except when the other person is marth or roy and they can counter ur giant punch.

i belive link and jiggly puff should switch places u can be cheap with link only using his up-B move. the winners of the preseason melee competition was fox,marth,kirby, and ness. we'll see in this tournament which characters will go on top. i understand pichu and mewtwo being on the bottom tier pichu hurts himself and mewtwo's down smash doesnt hit in blth directions and its very slow. the main purpose of a down smash is to hit in both directions.

belive it or not yoshi is actually as fast as sheik with 10.94 mps(meters per second). marth is next with 12.41 mps, then fox with 13.29mps and in 1st place is C Falcon with 14.3mps. of course the speed changes when ppl are bigger and tiny. if u dont belive me this guy i know used this kickass way to find out character speeds and weight. if u want to know the way then ask.

In reply to by Sir Ducksalot

roy is not much different from marth he is only a little bit slower but a lot more powerful. their swords have the same range, marths up-B is faster but roy's does more damage. i belive roy's counter is better then marths but if u miss with roys counter then your opponent has a lot of time to attack u. people think that dr.mario and mario are different but they are actually have a lot of similarities. they are the same speed 9.78mps and i belive they have the same strength. there only difference is their meteor smash which is forward A in the air and their B attack. mario's meteor smash is like a spike but dr.'s hits the to the side doing 18% its my favorite attack with him.

ok its really cool. first u use DK on final destination. then u pick up zelda and run across the stage with her. it should take 2.5seconds. then u do homeruncontest with DK and pick up the sandbag and run for 2.5 seconds and the average of all his tries was 61feet thus final destination is 61feet. so the formula is s=d/t where speed is s,d is distance and t is time. u have the distance which is 61 so s=61ft/t. now u time each character running acorss final destination. so for example mario runs across in 1.9seconds thus meaning 32.1ft/second if u round to the nearest tenth. to get meters u convert it by dividing the fps(feet per second)by 3.2808 which is the approximate conversion so u get 9.78 mps for mario!!!!

u cant get the exact weight but u can see if someone is heavier then someone else by using the platforms on mushroom kingdom as a scale. so pichu is the lightest followed by a tie between jiggilypuff and game and watch, then kirby, then strangly fox?

In reply to by Evil Kang

i might be wrong but i belive samus is slightly heavier the gannondorf putting him in 3rd place. 2nd is DK and first is bowser.

Here is the full weight scale this is not my work it's part of Mew2king's SSBM Statistics List.
--- 118 --- (1) Bowser
--- 114 --- (2) DK
--- 111 --- (3) Yoshi
--- 110 --- (4) Samus
--- 109 --- (5) Ganondorf
--- 104 --- (6-7) Captain Falcon / Link
--- 100 --- (8-9) Dr. Mario / Luigi
--- 98 --- (10) Mario
--- 94 --- (11) Ness
--- 90 --- (12-14) Peach / Sheik / Zelda
--- 88 --- (15) Ice Climbers
--- 85 --- (16-19) Marth / Roy / Young Link / Mewtwo
--- 80 --- (20-21) Falco / Pikachu
--- 74 --- (22) Kirby
--- 73 --- (23) Fox
--- 60 --- (24-25) Jigglypuff / Mr. Game & Watch
--- 55 --- (26) Pichu

-also
--ALL items (except Fans, which weight nothing at all) have a weight of EXACTLY 1 on this scale
--Transforming into Metal multiplies your weight by 3.
--Transforming into Giant multiplies your weight by 1.6
--Transforming into Tiny divides your weight by 1.6 (which is the same as multiplying by 0.625)

In reply to by xxug0xx

r u sure about this duck i go tmine on gamefaqs.com. if u click on ssbm there is a character weight guide as well as a character speed guide. how does your friend know this?

He is not my friend he is a videogame junky that has to much time on his hands so he thinks up ways to measure stats and does them then posts it on the web.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

lol. i emailed the character speed guy to tell him what a great job he did and he replied saying thanx so he is sorta my friend.

Eli, what do I do about signing up for registry, do I register my clan members that can make it 2 this saturday or can I sign them in anyway, because Leo(new axis name:Santa) can't make it this saturday and Im not sure about Teddy because I have not been able 2 reach him for a week, so he must be on vacation, and I don't know when he is coming back. Nick's twin, Adam will replace Leo and most likely Omid says he can be on my team, he most likely will replace Teddy. Let me show u what I mean, Eli.

Roster (originally 4 this saturday):
1. Black Shark
2. Santa (Leo) (Can't come)
3. Nick
4. Teddy (???)

Roster (projected 4 this saturday):
1. Black Shark
2. Nick
3. Teddy (???) or Omid if Teddy doesn't come back on time
4. Adam

Who Should I register? Eli, answer me now!

[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

OK! I'LL ANSWER YOU NOW!

Creating and rostering a clan are two different things. When you create a Clan, you specify exactly 4 primary members. Whether or not these people will be at any particular tournament is irrelevant; they are your primary members, and if they are present at the clan cup and your clan wins, they get the prize. So, you'll create your clan primaries, but you won't submit your roster for a tournament until checkin the day of the tournament, to allow for last-minute cancellations, subs, etc. So, it's up to you to decide who your Clan primaries are. Does that help?

And, TP2, I've decided that teams won't be locked, so you can swap pairings in your clan for the team events, but remember that you can only roster exactly 4 players for your clan at a tournament, so specialists will still have to play for the clan on their weaker game.

Also, to insert your logo, after I've uploaded it, click the image assist icon (with the green plus) when you're posting, choose your image, then scroll down in the bottom window and choose 'insert image'. That will give you a tag in your comment that calls the image. Put that tag at the bottom of your post, and you're all set.

[img_assist|fid=90|thumb=1|alt=Eli Neiburger]

Um, no, Mr. Indecisive Chokums, you need a shorter nickname. Besides, I've already articulated my preference for the sublime handle of 'Mr. Chokums'. Very distinctive, and a little scary. Just right.

Hey Eli, you said that one day you were gonna get clan logos to automatically appear, when will that be complete?
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

Have we ever had a poll work Sravan. You asking for people to say yes or no isn't going to get a large response. Also I say No to 1v1.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

In reply to by The Melancholy…

You know Eli already said this tournament will not have 1v1. So save it for after the tournament when everyone is back from band camp.

duck you forgot the second set of apostrophies on youre quote

"step 1: find you're cousin"
"step 2: get you're cousin in the cannon"
"step 3: find another cousin"

hahahahaha how wrong u are duck. eli personally told me if we have time then we will do 1v1 and he also said that we will most likely have time because he took all the bugs out of the system. galen said for 1v1 too so 4-1. flare ho wdo u think of all these quotes u have a different quote each time u post.

[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

o ok. another poll. if we have a LOT of time and since we ARE doing 1v1, do u guys think we should do best 2/3 for the srmis and 3/5 for the finals. or we could just do 2/3 for the finals because in 2 stock if u make one mistake u are dare i say it screwed. i think we should also because of the stages u might not get "your stage" and u can get another one in a 2/3 match. i say yes so 1-yes 0-no. this is only if we have enough time that is...

Sure Whatever, 3-0.
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

I don't think we will have the time.

"The elders tell of a young ball much like you. He bounced three meters in the air. Then he bounced 1.8 meters in the air. Then he bounced FOUR meters in the air. Do I make myself clear?"

lol flare. then we should only do 2/3 in the finals only. or 3/5 in the finals and 2/3 in the 3rd place match. eli which 1 do u want??JOE WHERE ARE U???????????????????

Well, you guys are entitled to your opinions, of course, but as you know, it's my decision, and I will make it on the fly depending on how things are going. I do like the idea of 1v1 finals, because they're more intense and a better judge of skill, but we will not be doing 2/3 or 3/5 melee matches 1 match, that's it. Cutthroat!

Stop changing the rules right before the tournament. It is very annoying.

"The elders tell of a young ball much like you. He bounced three meters in the air. Then he bounced 1.8 meters in the air. Then he bounced FOUR meters in the air. Do I make myself clear?"

duck we were supposed to do 1v1 anyway. lol i did play noobs to get in the finals except for badger and of course u duck. we should at least do the finals 2/3 if we have time. eli can u make a list of all the ppl who want to commentate so we dont get into huge arguments in the tournaments. the ppl i know so far are me,duck,galen,black shark, and ugo. i think 5 is a good number to have total commentators or maybe 6. but its your tournament as u said.

Yeah, you had it easy. I had to face Flare THREE times!!! And Duck once i think...or...was it Leinad? I can't remember.
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

i fought miniblin 1 time and fought John Durski 3 times, and fought Balla 1 time so who's the 1 that got messed up, and is Duck that good, like can he beat sravan or galen..caus galen sucks but Sravan he's okay

hey eli i liked that music that u had at the december finals last year and i was thinking of instead of listening to corney mario kart music u can play one of those tunes during a race heck even a song. its just a suggestion. duck is so scared to insult me on this blog so he does it on another haha.

U said u have 5% for this job, Eli (talking about from Wed. 12:46am). Sravan, u said u would take a break from posting, now u have 295 posts man!

[img_assist|fid=123|thumb=1|alt=Black Shark Clan]

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"

they probably either don't know about his counter or they are doing it to be stupid. their team mate can keep him busy and then u come in with a hammer and kill him. noah i so do not have 295 posts.

i didnt read ugo's post cuz it was at the same time as mine. ugo galen is better than u and u have to admit it. john durski is not that good he uses kirby for gods sake. galen only barely lost to him because the course was infinate glacier. balla isnt that good either but mini blin is pretty good. duck can not beat either me,flare,galen, or mini blin. u didnt even make the top 16. u can stay in denial if u want.

eli- registration is tonight and as u said we can create clans. what if somebody drops out like in october saying they dont want to be in the clan anymore, can we change our primary clan members. do we also cerate a roster for the saturday tournament tonight?

"The course of true love never did run smooth"
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

1 v. 1 matches require a lot more skill than 4 player free-for-alls. I have been playing a lot of matches with 4 humans and I find that the matches can move very slowly because, of hiding.
By The Way I can't get the clan symbol to work to work. Has anyone ever used it on a mac.

LMAO TP2 U HAVE A MAC. I THOUGHT ONLY CHICKS HAD MACS. but anyway i dont know but i'm glad u like 1v1. r u coming to the august tournament?

In reply to by TheKoolAidGuy

Macs are better I have never heard of any mac getting viruses. Not to mention that at E3 X-Box 360 software was being shown off using the power of macs. Not only does my family own 3 macs I also own a few dozen shares of apple stock. One more thing apple is switching to intel chips which will make macs even more powerful.
By the way I do own a PC, but I've never connected it to the internet in my life. I only use it for games.
For those of you who care macs come with a built in c++ compiler I think. (I'm not positive it comes with the mac, but I have it on two of my family's macs.) By the way if you haven't noticed they use mac laptops at the tournament.
I'm coming to the August tournament. I would have to say that I just started practicing on Monday. I don't have high hopes for MK, but I think I'll fare well in melee. I've gotten a lot better since you last played me Sravan.

i look forward to playing u tp2. u won mario kart last year. fine macs are better...sometimes

TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT

I won't tell you what it means. Only TC members know (and Eli) (Eli please don't tell).

I will give you a few hint it probably will not make grammatical sense. Also it is not a sentence. Finally look it up at a translator.

If you can't figure out what TORTURIS means I am ashamed of you.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh torturis is turtle, right? Or turtoise

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"

not exactly

looks like no reg tonight.

by the way I had some very successful practice tonight, but most of you probably don't care.

I know I'm not the best at Melee but I'm not one of the melee powerhouses in my clan. Last time I played melee with my clanmates I got by butt kicked.

That Latin phase doesn't make sense the closest I got was
"turtle advance/March/Go spoils/booty" of coarse my translation might be off.

"Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"-Fry

Well since sravan posts like mouse there tends to be many conversations as long as other people are here.

"The elders tell of a young ball much like you. He bounced three meters in the air. Then he bounced 1.8 meters in the air. Then he bounced FOUR meters in the air. Do I make myself clear?"

Yes she has 800 post on Dx.

"The elders tell of a young ball much like you. He bounced three meters in the air. Then he bounced 1.8 meters in the air. Then he bounced FOUR meters in the air. Do I make myself clear?"

I know during finals she totally took away my high score, and who else on here would know her?
Now I'm like third, and the site, died over the summer, I hope that it will come a live when school starts

She can post wherever she wants. just because you guys post on the newest one doesn't require everyone to post there.

"Everyone's always in favour of saving Hitler's brain. But when you put it in the body of a great white shark, ooohh! Suddenly you've gone too far!"

Black Shark, a post remains open for comments for 60 days after being posted. During that time, anyone can post on it. It's not a secret. Especially since, in this case, a discussion was actually happening. Relax!

Let me lay it out a bit more clearly.

I, ELI, KING OF ALL AXISNESS, DO HEREBY HEARTILY ENDORSE THE PRACTICE OF COMMENTING ON POSTS THAT ARE OPEN FOR COMMENTS, EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT THE NEWEST POST IN A PARTICULAR SECTION. YES. IT IS ALL GOOD.

Can you tell I've been playing Katamari tonight? You may now return to your normally scheduled petty bickering, already in progress. =)

Oh so it's timed. Now what is the limit on editing comments? My first comments were able to be edited until the blog closed but my new ones only last a little while.

"Everyone's always in favour of saving Hitler's brain. But when you put it in the body of a great white shark, ooohh! Suddenly you've gone too far!"

8 posts in 15 minutes thats a new record. except when a new blog comes out. noah u have to learn to be more patient. eli as i said before i think we should not let newcomers commentate not to be sterio type but us vetrans know more about the games and players and AADL-GT in general. so anyway see u on saturday.

You know I much more concerned about swimming with dolphins then swimming with Sharks. Dolphins will kill each other including young for almost nothing, sharks just kill to eat and their mouths are recessed so they can't bite well.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

then replace him with one of your partners. in melee he will be replaced by either joe or derek.

[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

since the tournament is coming up i guess i should make some predictions. for single mario kart the 8 players in the finals will be joe,derek,duck,miniblin,me,galen,black shark and maybe a new comer. team mario kart the 4 teams are the trouble monkeys, mike rotch, miniblin's team, the noobz(flare's team)or the vaccinated monks its 4 of those 5. single melee this is the hard one so i will pick the top 8 and from then on i dont know-me,galen,mini blin,flare,badger,tofu, and flar's partner, espcially not JOHN DURSKI cuz everyone know his so called "trick". joe and derek i dont know ur skill so i cant put u in the predictions and WHERE R U GUYS? team melee isnt that hard-mike rotch,the noobz,the badgers(if badger is on this team), and i guess the trouble monkeysor the vaccinated monks 4 of those 5. as for the suprise round i dont know but if its a mode in melee then me,galen, and flare will rule but if its mario kart mirror the joe and derek will rule. and i predict the clan winner of the august tournament to be the TROUBLE MONKEYS!!!! the vaccinated monks im not so sure about cuz u got those new comers in. flar's clan stands a good chance even though i only know 2 ppl in his clan. the most referals will obviously be bad driver and the turtle clan. anyway i better go to bed its 1am lol.

even though u dont care what i think if u change to marth then i will be able beat you without trying 110% so yeah dont change it would bore me

"Tonight madam its your money and your life"

cuz me and duck called it ways back. did u email ur logo to eli? if u did then it should be in the database thingy right? we better do 1v1 melee please eli please. the free for all in 2 stock increases the luck and decreases the skill. one good item and u win basically. we have to make tim efor 1v1. i dont care about best 2/3 but WE NEED TO HAVE 1V1. what are their code names bad driver i nobody uses their real name except the TROUBLE MONKEY CLAN.

So Eli are we sticking with 4 person free for all in melee still or are you going to change the rules 4 days 16 hours and 12 min before the tournament.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

Wow, chill! I've just uploaded your clan logo, Black Shark. I assume you're going to be Black Shark Clan, if not, let me know and I can change it.

Here's how were going to do commentary on Saturday. I want to give as many people a chance to do it as want to try it. Sravan and Duck can start, since they asked first, and then when one or the other of them has to play, someone else can try. We'll keep rotating every time someone has to play, and there won't be a limit to the number of turns you take in the commentary box. So Black Shark, Muffincat, Miniblin, even Galen, anyone who wants to try their hand at videogame broadcasting can give it a whirl and come back for more if they want to. However, after this first tournament, I will be choosing commentators for the remaining tournaments based on quality, so you can consider this an audition. Be funny, knowledgeable, animated, and sportsmanlike, and maybe you'll be asked back.

As for recruitment bonuses, your clan will get a bonus if new players, who have not attended a single event before last month's preseason, say they were recruited by a primary member of your clan. If your clan recruits 4 players who form a new clan, you get the clan recruitment bonus too. Recruitment bonuses do not apply to individual scores, only to clan scores.

Thank u Eli. Yes! Yes! Yes!

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"

I would have to say that I am greatly opposed to forcing people to be on a melee team with someone who they played co-op MK with. I know that might make it easier, but the guy I want to have on my melee team has never even played mario kart and the guy I want on my mario kart team isn't as good at melee as the other guy.

P.S. I can't figure out how to put my logo on. I opened image assist and I said insert image, but it's not working.
