4th Place winner: Nintendo GBA-SP

2nd Place winner: iPod
Grand Champion: Sony PSP

Stay tuned, or read on for more.

Now, as many of you know, this season, we're raising the stakes by having several levels of competition going on at the same time. Let me take a minute to explain all this a little better.

Individual and Team Competition

At a single tournament, individual and team competition and the individual prizes will be relatively straightforward. There are four events: Single-player Kart Race, Team Kart Race, Single-player Melee, and Team Melee. If you, or your team, places 4th or better in any one of these events, you are qualified for that day's SurPrize Round as an individual. The SurPrize round will not feature any team play. If your team wins or places in an event, you both get into the SurPrize Round as individuals. Also, competing in any prize round throughout the season qualifies you for the Grand Championship in December.

Throughout the season, we will also be tracking the individual leaderboard. The leaderboard will show your combined score for every match you've competed in, plus bonuses for winning events or prizes.

Clan Competition

This season, you can form a 4-player clan and work together towards the Clan Cup prize in December. Your clan score will essentially be your 4 individual scores put together, plus some clan-specific bonuses. However, in order to avoid penalizing Clans that have other commitments, you will be able to have subs for your Clan if all your Clan members can't make a tournament. Here's how Clan subs will work:

When you form your Clan, you will specify exactly 4 primary clan members. In order for your Clan to earn points at a tournament, at least 1 of your primary Clan members must be present and playing for your Clan. At registration for each tournament, you will tell us what your Clan roster is for that day. Your Clan roster is in effect only for that tournament, and must include 1 clan primary. Clan primaries cannot compete for other Clans unless their primary Clan is not rostering at that tournament. In addition to your Primaries, you can fill out your roster with any other present players who have agreed to sub for your clan. Clan subs will not be entitled to prizes unless they are subbing for the winning Clan at the Clan Cup at the Grand Championship.

Your Clan's Teams for teams events must be two of your four rostered Clan players. Your teams must be the same for both team events at a single tournament, but can obviously change throughout the season.

Your Clan score is calculated by totaling the points that your rostered members earned at each tournament, plus bonuses as appropriate. The Clan that earns the most points at a single tournament will be declared the 'Clan Champ' of that tournament, and will be eligible for the Clan Cup in December. There is no prize or bonus for your clan winning a single tournament. In addition to the 4 regular season Clan Champs, some of the highest scoring Clans over the regular season will be qualified for the clan cup, until we have 8 clans qualified. So, your Clan does not necessarily need to win a tournament to make it into the Clan Cup if you perform well all season.

Scoring Chart

Here is a table of how many points can be earned, including bonuses. Note that if you participate in a team event, your Clan gets all your team's score added to their total, and you get half your team's score added to your individual season score.

Mario Kart Single Player and Team Match Scores
1st: 100 points
2nd: 80
3rd: 60
4th: 50
5th: 40
6th: 30
7th: 20
8th: 10

Super Smash Brothers: Melee Single Player Scores
1st: 50 points
2nd: 30
3rd: 20
4th: 10

Super Smash Brothers: Melee Team Scores
Winner: 100 points
Loser: 20 points

Event Winner Single Player and Team Bonuses
1st place in an event: 400 point bonus
2nd place: 300
3rd place: 200
4th place: 100

(Don't forget, there will be an inherent bonus for making it to elimination rounds, as you'll get more matches the further you make it.)

SurPrize Round Winner Bonuses
1st Prize: 1000 point bonus
2nd Prize: 800
3rd Prize: 600
4th Prize: 400

Recruitment Bonuses (for Clans Only)
Recruit a new player: 101 point bonus
Recruit an entire new clan: 404 points for the players plus 400 point bonus.

Your clan must recruit all four primaries of a single clan to qualify for this bonus. New players are people who did not participate in a single season 1 GT tournament. New players can only give their recruitment bonus to a single clan.

We will track the individual leaderboard and the team leaderboard throughout the season. Clan registration and Round 1 pre-registration will begin the week of August 15th.

Oh, and one more thing: For the season, we are going to change Melee to be a 3 minute time limit, but stock two instead of three. You get one mistake, then you need to watch it! Too many matches were going to sudden death last week.

I think that should clear some things up, if you made it this far. Post your questions, and we'll see you August 20th!

YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. bonuses for getting new ppl that is so coooooooooooooooooooooooooool. under the event winners u have something called an inhearet bonus, whats that? what shop can we use the gift certificates to. so let me get this all stragtined out(i spelled that wrong). there will be 3 qualifing races for team and single mario kart. there will be 6 matches for melee and team melee but i think we should do 4 because of the time limit. so totally u could 1400 if u come in first in all of ur qualifing matches plus that inhearet bonus and if even win the event then u get it even more. if u make it into the prize round for any tournament then u will be qualified to compete in the december tournament individually right? do i get a bonus for getting ugo and balla to join? anyway hope u clear all my questions up.

is there any multiplayer in paper mario? also can we not have the sega games for the suprise round even though no one plays it and it would be a suprise testing ur real gaming skill.

"When politicians take viagra they grow taller"

hey muffincan or w/e i need 1 mroe person in m clan and i was wondering if your better at mele or double dahs and how good u did in the tournament, and Eli i have a question who got broadcasted on Quality 16, and is it on yet

Ok, Sravan the levle you are talking about is the Truthe and Reconsiliation (I spelled that wrong probably), be sure to keep your sniper rifle, it come in extremely handy. Other than that i dont have any tips. The captain is extremely stupid and will rush out like an idiot so just kill w/e gets in you way. Also there is no multiplayer for Paper Mario.

Duck were you really drinking beer?

omid i found out y i cant IM u thats cuz ur AOL version doesnt support direct IM which is kinda weird have AOL but not having a good AIM. u should download the newest version.

"When politicians take viagra they grow taller"

ok, great now i don't have ROd, Or Thomas, my clan would've killed, atleast i still have Mario, and his older bro thats in like 10th grade is supposed to get us some super nerds

In reply to by TheKoolAidGuy

joe do u and derek have AIM?

"When politicians take viagra they grow taller"

rod and thomas i have one person for u if u want him. he has played both games and is ok at both. tell me if u are interested.
"When politicians take viagra they grow taller"

Well lets see who I will have. I don't know yet but there are several people that I have talked with.

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

Hey Ugo, actually, I'm on vacation. We haven't finished the Quality 16 ad yet, it's still in pre-production. It probably won't start showing until late August. However, I did really like your & balla's interview...

BTW, stealing someone's name (or appearing to) is seriously bad form. Especially when you don't notice that it changes the name on all your previous posts too. I have admin powers, DUCK. Don't make me use them.

eli i have a question. for the elims in single melee, the 1v1s, will those count towards clan points. also will each race in the elimination rounds for mario kart will count towards clan points correct? the scoring will be like the ones that u said. the scoring for 1v1 should be 50-winner, 10-loser. they have to play 4 matches to win the event so if it was 100 they would get 400 plus the 400 event bonus.

I knew it changed all my old posts(like anyone is going to look back besides me) just testing the system and the brains of the other kids. I was thinking of changing my name when I reallized I could pull a Joe S. and wanted to see if anyone would notice I didn't think you would show up so quickly and expose me. Oh well I guess I will stick to Duck for now.

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

ahhhh so it was duck. clever but not clever enough.

"When politicians take viagra they grow taller"
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

Meh! Why must you alwatys make me show up and read 50 random posts for only valuable content from about three of them.</complaining> And ugo, we will see you at the clan champs if <strong><em>you</em></strong> make it.

since the next tournament is on the air and leinad and tom(thankfully) will not be there, who is gonna do the commentating. i bet black shark would like to and so would duck but we should take turns for each event. probably black shark would do melee cuz me, galen, and duck will be tearing it up. then the rest of the ppl who wanna do it can do mario kart or melee if they get knocked out. but commentating isnt a huge issue its not doing embarrasing stuff on the air lol. at least all the problems in the new software that eli got are gone(i hope) so we can do all the things we wanted to do but we counldnt.

"When politicians take viagra they grow taller"

Leinad, how do you make your text bold and italisized? (i spelled th
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]
at wrong)

When making a comment Look below the comment box, Below the Image and Read the format Guild lines then you could you know fool arund with them and then edit out the random stuff. Or if you lazy the em one is <em> this</em> and the strong one is <strong> this.</strong>

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

so u type the HTML tag before the word that u wanna change or u type ur word in the tag?

In reply to by TheKoolAidGuy

when u refer someone to axis and get the bonus points do those points count towards the tournament or to the overall standings because eli said another way to make into the clan cup is to get the most points in a tournament.

"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.]

the referals should count to the overall score not the tournament. the points for the clan winner of a tournament should be points only accumilated by the 5 events.

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

since melee is 1v1 we will be having a 3rd place match for single melee and team melee correct?

In reply to by The Melancholy…

hey whats up flare. do u have a clan yet i have one person for u if u want it. u can get the bonus points for him. ever heard of omid? nice to talk to u. BTW this is sravan

"Dude! You made out with your SISTER!"

Nay also sravan you didn't read my post right i asked what you should do if noone wants to sub and your the only one in your clan are you aloud to be on a team with anybody else. Also we migh not have 3 clans but, I have done a ton of recruiting and Turtle clan 2 won't be made of entirley new people.

I sure Eli won't be crule and say you can't get a partner BadDriver.

I don't think it will be 1v1 in melee.

And 7 + 7 =16 duh. Leinad should know what I did.

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

well its 15 in base 9 and 13 in base 11 and and 12 in base 12, however 10 in base 11 is A and 11 in base 12 is B becuase u cant put 10 or 11 in one place value u can only put the digits from 0-9. beat that duck.

Woah! Two stock melee! Okay, I can do that...

Sounds all good although I was too lazy to think about all the numbers involved in clan points. I'll just trust you to do it right.

Sounds good.

"There is no spoon." -Neo

No sravan read the Individual and Team Competition section. Oh and will we be able to choose are prizes for the finals as in first place could choose any item then second chooses one of the 3 left and so on. you know so you won't get divers in the final match.

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

In reply to by Sir Ducksalot

so what is basically trying to say is he doesnt want the PSP and wants the ipod or another DS. i would take the PSP and if u dont want it then sell it and buy an ipod with that money. what should i read in the individual and team compettition sections and where does it say 2 stock melee cuz i am against that.

No i don't want people to dive like i did. that if you make it to the surprize round you are in the championship. 2 stock is at the very end.

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

Yea to spaced out to follow your talk of the tourtament set up, but duck, can your clan get the new person points, because miniblin introduced me to this whole game world what ever, and is the 20th tourtament grades6-12 again?

yes, the 20th is a grades 6-12 tournament. I'm not sure if my clan can get your points but I think miniblin should get them. I will get plenty from others hopefully and my clan has some of the best players.

"The stuff that dreams are made of."

Ok, the 'inherent' bonus means that if you move on to the elimination rounds, you get more races than the people that didnt, and more chances to score points. So, there are more points inherent in making it to the elimination rounds even if you don't wind up winning the event.

As for the grand prizes, we will have 1st-4th place winners pick their prizes in order from the 4 prizes to avoid duck-style diving. =) So 1st place gets first pick of the prizes, 2nd place chooses from what's left, etc.

As for stock/time, we need to still have a time limit to keep things moving, but I'm open to hearing alternate combinations of stock and time. I think 2 stock would be pretty exciting and keep things moving, but you guys should know by now that I can be convinced otherwise by well-reasoned arguments.

actually now i think we should do 2 stock because 1 it does save time but another is that if we had extra time we could do 1v1 for the whole elimination rounds and i mean ALL OF IT. we should not have a time limit because we could get into a situation where someone is stalling and will win but we want ppl to fight each other fast. i guess the picking prizes is good but thats in december and we dont need to worry about that for a while. another suggestion is no stock at all and just a 2 minute time battle where the players are forced to fight with one another. but as eli says its his tournament and he can do whatever he wants.

"Loosey Goosey"

Wha? 2 stock?! I liked the 3 stock with the 3 minute time limit, can we keep it that way?
[img_assist|fid=97|thumb=1|alt=Trouble Monkey Clan|caption=Logo for the AADL-GT Trouble Monkey Clan.]

I was originally skeptical about 2 stock. But I've been playing it this afternoon, and I really like it. I think 2 stock, 3 minutes is a great way to play. Me and my brother played for a while and only went to Sudden Death once. The matches were very exciting too. I like 2 stock.

"There is no spoon." -Neo

I don't own melee or mario cart, I was barrowing them from miniblin, so how much do, you guys think they would cost?
And if I am not in a clan, can I still try for the big prizes in december, like the psp?

Muffincat, I think both games can be had for $30 new each, less than that for used copies. Being in a clan only gets you a shot at the 4 iPod shuffles. All the other prizes are for individuals only, no clans required.

can we just kill the time limit and have 2 stock. the ipod for the individual prize is it a shuffle or a mini. im not so sure about giving clan points for the prize round i think that the prize round should be all individual. i think mario kart is 40 instead of 30. last melee was 30 but i bet it dropped to 25 or 20.

"Loosey Goosey"

maybe we should increase the melee score for the clans to about 100 like it was in july. just have the points that u got for piliminary rounds in july as ur clan scoring.

"Loosey Goosey"

yeah that would be pretty cool..well i am looking for a clan and i am a beast at Mele can beat sravan some times but suck at double dash anybody that is really good at mario kart here that needs a clan! well hope there are some ppl. C ya

-Ugo

We need the time limit. No time limit means people can postpone indefinitely and not have to worry about the unpredictability of sudden death.

The reason it isn't 100 is because odds are we will have twice as many melee matches as double dash matches. So for clans (which is what the points are for) it would weigh it unfairly to melee if they were scored at 100 points. Eli did the math right don't bother trying to change it.

Edited 9/8/05 just because I could.

Eli, are you sure the price is $30? I saw a super smash bros. for $25 at gamestop and i didn't look for mario kart.

In reply to by Galen G.

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

i guess u are right duck. we should just do a 2 minute time limit without any stock so ppl have to kill other ppl to win. eli do i get a bonus for brining ugo to axis. if he makes a clan will i get the clan bonus too?

"Loosey Goosey"

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

in the clan cup in december what will the events be. it will mostly be mario kart and melee right. no suprise right. same with individual no suprise right.

"Lo osey Goosey"

In reply to by TheKoolAidGuy

You only get the clan bonus if your clan refers every member in a clan
I think.

Would you look at that it's Thu, 08/25/2005 - 7:23pm And I can still edit this comment.
