AiB Playoffs Conclusion
by 740 April 30 2010, 9:31 PM
As you are probably aware of, our top ladder players have been duking it out these last four weeks. And now both playoffs events have been concluded. On schedule too, for once. Which is surely a result of the professional, seasoned veteran Playoffs host who fought bravely to ensure that the deadline was kept. Oh, and his assistant Enrish probably helped out as well.

There have been a few surprises this round of playoffs. Dabuz winning the singles playoffs is probably not one of them. And seeing HolyNightmare and Ally ascend to take first place in the doubles playoffs probably doesn't surprise too many people either. Congratulations, guys! Lets have a look at the two events, and the prizes awarded for the top placers.


Singles

The final bracket can be seen here: Click me.
Note that this is sadly not an accurate chart of who beat who, since unfortunately some players had to be given losses for not showing up and such. I think its safe to say that the Playoffs are tests both in Brawl skill as well as your ability to show up on time.
It's probably safe to say that the biggest upset in the Singles Playoffs is how Ally "only" got 5th place, losing first vs. Dabuz and then unexpectedly being knocked out of the tournament by Addy, who also knocked out Atomsk in Losers' Finals.

It should also be mentioned that San pulled off a fairly impressive 13th place using Ike.

Prize winners for the AiB Winter Singles Playoffs 2010:

1. Dabuz - $200
2. Addy - $100
3. Atomsk - $50
4. SS13 - $ 20


Unfortunately no matches were recorded from the Singles Playoffs this time.



Doubles

Feast your eyes on the sight of the final bracket for doubles here: Click me.
Ally and HolyNightmare made short work out of everyone who got in their way. SS13 and Raffi-X were sent to the losers side of the bracket in semi-finals by Waft-Oli and Debom, but managed to avenge their loss vs. them in Losers' Finals, thus advancing to Grand Finals to experience the onslaught of HolyNightmare and Ally.

The team that held the first place on the doubles ladder throughout the ladder season, Tearbear and Choconaner, ended up in a disappointing 9th place.
Oh and lets not forget.. The highest placing DK main this round of Playoffs was Dr.Grandpa. His team ended up in 4th place in doubles. Good stuff!


Prize winners for the AiB Winter Doubles Playoffs 2010:


1. HolyNightmare and Ally - $100
2. SS13 and Raffi-X - $50


We do have some replays from the doubles winners finals. Sadly match 1 and 4 could not be recorded, but lets take a look at what we got.
HolyNightmare and Ally Vs Waft-Oli and Debom, winners finals:

Game 2
Game 3
Game 5



Congratulations to all the winners! And thanks to Waft-Oli for recording, Enrish for helping out by hosting doubles, and lightlanayru, Masterkoga and Zolga for their great help in writing content.


Allright, I guess this was it for Playoffs this time. The next real ladder season will start in a few days, and the rat race for the next round of Playoffs will start. Good luck to everyone who plan on fighting their way to the top!

Good read. :]

Anddd, you're welcome. ^-^; (I still would've done better, though. >_<)

Glad I could help. *Rage* at Miles of Smashwiki for not tagging me, lol.

We were going to add something in last minute but Miles was too fast. So, just in case it isn't added in I'll put it here.

I'd like to know everyone's feedback on these playoffs. I know last time it didn't go so smooth and the main complaint was to be more organized. Well, seeing that we got this done on time I'd say we fixed that for the most part. Many, if not all, Double Playoff participants know I sent a PM to them for almost every round, reminding them who played and when everything had to be done. It was so people wouldn't forget and get disqualified. I would especially like to know if that helped at all and if you'd like to see that happen again for the next playoffs. If you have any ideas, questions, concerns, complaints or what ever else please let us know so we can make it a better experience for everyone.

Haha, don't worry about it. I'm not blaming you for anything or even complaining to a certain extent. I just thought of feedback a few minutes ago. If people would like to comment on how it went I'm sure they would do it without us mentioning feedback.

I'd assume $25 each.
