wow, harder questions than I thought! I'll be in next week.

Also, I can't believe no one got the question on who beat Ken and Isai :0
AlphaZealot wrote at 10:45 PM on Sep 11, 2008 :
Yea, people over look that I think because its sandwiched between their first loss ever (to Taj/Forward) and their first overall tournament loss (losing to Mew2King/King and then Chillin/Azen in the finals).
Iwan wrote at 10:47 PM on Sep 11, 2008 :
Yea, a few people I'm talking to on AIM mentioned just that; they mixed up those three. And correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't that loss also in the same set as "Isai's comeback"? (The 2v1 where he pulled it out).

I could take part to this session although it was really late for me, and I must say I really appreciated the questions. Good job for this, AZ !
However, the way the session took place was rather disapointing. I can understand that doing it in the matchmaking room brought many people to play online, but it was hectic enough many people were already participating to the trivia session, and people who were here to find someone to play made it worse. And I guess it wasn't nice for them, too =/
Also all those people made it hard to answer or the spot the questions in the huge flood mass (BTW congrats to AZ who managed to see who was the first who got the right answer while about 20 answers were appearing every second). I think a anti-flood system (like a fixed amount of time to wait between writing two things in the chatroom could make everything easier.
Anyway, the concept and contents are good on the whole so keep going, with a few improvements it will be great =)

That was fun, even if I didn't know anything lol, I came into Smash competitive scene really late. Also, use a tourney chat, bigger message window and people won't be coming for other reasons.

I have to say EXCELLENT questions. I knew the answer to 3 of them but was too late to respond ;(

Um didn't M2K win Cataclysm 3 which was way before FCD? Or does that not count as a "national tourney"??
AlphaZealot wrote at 8:30 PM on Sep 12, 2008 :
He did, and I did not count it.
