Greeting one and all, and welcome to this season's first Doubles Night! I
know how hard it is to find people to challenge in the Doubles Ladder
chat sometimes, but I also know how important this ladder is, so we're
going to host a few Doubles Nights this season to get things moving.
night is just a time to come to the doubles chat, play as many matches
to your heart's content and earn a cool badge for doing so. This
Doubles Night event will be hosted Friday, September 30, 2011, and will
run from 6 PM EST – 12 AM EST. Participants at this event will have a
shot at earning the double dater
To acquire the badge, participants will need to complete a minimum of 3
Doubles Ladder rank matches this Doubles Night, and send me (or host Miles of SmashWiki
a PM after the event if you think your team fulfilled the requirements
to obtain the badge. Just have the team captain PM one of us, since
it's not really necessary for both members of the team to send me the
As an added bonus hosts of the night, Miles of
SmashWiki and Fandangox, will be hosting Non-Smash Trivia during Doubles
Night. For those who are unfamiliar with how Non-Smash Trivia works, it
is a contest for knowing certain pieces of information relating to
Nintendo games. For those who know how it works, Miles and Fandangox
will be doing things a little differently at this event. Since this is a
6 hour event, we don’t want people just coming by to play three
matches for the double dater badge, and calling it a night. We want
everyone sticking around the whole night, playing rank matches, earning
badges, and having fun; so throughout the night, Miles and Fandangox
will be randomly asking Non-Smash Trivia questions. They’ll give notice
before asking questions, but if you miss one, you’ll have many more
chances throughout the night. All standard Non-Smash Trivia rules
apply. Whoever answers first gets a point, they'll keep track of points
throughout the night, etc. The top scoring individuals will receive
cards, as will whoever correctly answers the difficult Challenge
Question! Now for the new ladder rules!!! Yes, in addition to last articles.
your partner is banned from the site then you are unable to participate
in doubles ladder. You can not substitute your partner, unless you
disband. This means if your partner gets banned from the site for a
month then your team can not participate in ladder for that month.
- You cannot play against family members, or anyone in the same house, but you can play with them as a team.
- No one person can play the same team more than once in 24 hours regardless of you switching teams.
for this season alone, until further notice, we have decided to use
Apex's stage list. It was decided since stage lists are already so close
and it is the Apex ladder there is no reason not to use Apex's stage
- Final Destination
- Yoshi’s Island (Brawl)
- Castle Siege
- Delfino Plaza
- Pokemon Stadium 1
- Frigate Orpheon

As I've stated before Neal is the only one that can change the ladder
rules page, and because of his busy schedule I'm unsure how soon he'll
be able to change it. Until further notice (or he changes the page to
match the updated rules) please refer to this article and the one linked
above for the rules. Anything not addressed in the articles can be
found in the FAQs
. If you are unsure of anything after reading everything please feel free to ask me.
Once again please give big thanks to our sponsors vVv-Gaming
, and Apex2012
for making this ladder so special! We hope to see everyone at Doubles Night, and good luck to everyone!
