Hello there again, All is Brawl! Now that the trick-or-treating is over, a new holiday with even more food is upon us. In addition, schools are getting closer to letting kids out for winter vacation (but not before final exams!) Isn't Fall lovely? But enough of all that; there's a contest at hand! Let's get to it!

Last edition's results: ken2 was the mystery user of #33. He joined the site on July 23, 2010, mains Diddy Kong in Mario Kart Wii, and his favorite board game of all time is Taboo. ShadowHero, Foodies, Cpt.OrangeFox, SkOaRaAn, and Mocha were the first five to guess correctly, so congrats to them! By the way, if you wish to see the results of a WTU right after they happen, check this group out!

Rules:
1. I will show you the message the featured user sent me. If you are the user I am describing, please keep quiet about it and do not reveal yourself. Failure to comply will result in the loss of your
WTU Featured User badge.
2. In addition to a fact, clues will be given to help you search the myriad users of AiB for the right one. Don’t stop until you are absolutely sure you have the right user and he or she matches the clues given, because you only get one shot at this.
3. To make sure you are taking the time to check your guess, I will give you a few questions to answer about this user. Every answer will be found somewhere on his or her profile (About Me, blogs, videos, etc.) If one answer is incorrect, then your whole guess will be counted wrong, so make sure you are absolutely certain of what you typed. (P.S. If you can't find the answers or have to PM the person you're looking at for an answer, you're doing it wrong.)
4. When you are ready to give the name and answers, do not post as a comment. You must send a private message, or your submission will be void. Also, don’t give me a link to his or her profile unless you have the name and the answers to the questions to go with it. Putting just a link in your message will count as an incomplete (and therefore wrong) answer.
5. Everyone has until midnight tonight (PST) to message me. Any answer sent in after that will not be counted.
6. The first five that send the correct username get the
WTU Winner badge! Keep in mind, however, that some veterans may come back to compete. Work fast, but don’t give up!

And now, I present you all with this week's mystery submission. Good luck!

"So it was November 28th, 2003. I was in Ohio. It was Winter and we got news about a chance of having a snowstorm outside. I doubted it. My brother was playing outside in the snow as my grandma was watching him. I was chilling. Later on, I was looking for my brother and went to my grandma to ask where did he go. She said, "I thought he came in." I said, "Seriously? He could be freezing as heck out there!" So I came outside. It was freezing as hell outside and I could barely see due to the strong snow. After an hour. I cried and fell on my knees to the ground. Then I got up and sniffed as I walked home. Suddenly, I fell in the snow on something, looked down and it was my brother! Very relieved, I picked him up and ran in the house to get a blanket for him. He seemed to be fine and was going to be okay. Though, he had a cold. A cold is bad, but it's a good thing he is safe."

In addition to what's above, this user...
-is in the group Skype Club!
-Has a "k" somewhere in the username.
-joined the site in Spring 2009.

And the questions you need to answer about this user are as follows:
1. When exactly did this user join the site?
2. How many tournaments has this user been to?
3. What is this user's favorite color combination?

So tell me…WHO’S THAT USER?! Good luck to all, use your time wisely, and pay attention to the clues/questions! >;D

P.S. If you wish to send in a submission to be featured in future WTUs, feel free to do so! Your submission should look similar to those that have been featured before in terms of content, so...yeah.
Hello there, everyone! Well, it looks like Halloween is closer than ever. I would've done a Halloween edition, but I kind of forgot and it's such short notice. Don't worry, though; I'll make it up with a special winter edition! (Plus you can always enter the Halloween contests here...like the costume one, since that could use a little more hype.) Anyway, let's go over what happened last time.

Results: person13nebur was the featured user from WTU #32. He joined the site on February 13, 2009, mains Ness in Melee, and has three tournament medals. Will Wright, RawrBaby, and SkOaRaAn were the only ones to guess correctly. I think I see the pattern now; a wave of excitement before a period of inactivity. Fine by me. Congrats to those that participated and won! And by the way, if you want to see the results of each WTU as they happen, go here!

1. I will show you the message the featured user sent me. If you are the user I am describing, please keep quiet about it and do not reveal yourself. Failure to comply will result in the loss of your

"I did a project on Melee in my AP biology class and it got graded as a final lmao! It was so much fun. I got a 98 for it. You could do anything you wanted, it was called a how to project so I taught the class how to smash. I went all in. I brought in a power point presentation, my system, and controllers. I taught them the basics and the concept and then went into detail. I talked about advanced techniques and tournament play and they were all impressed by how much is involved."

In addition to that, this user...
-is in the group MY LEG!!! DX
-has an "e" in the username.
-joined the site during Summer 2010.

And the questions you need to answer are as follows:
1. When exactly did the user join the site?
2. Who does this user main in Mario Kart Wii?
3. What is this user's favorite board game? (Hint: rule #3!)

So tell me…WHO’S THAT USER?! Good luck to all, use your time wisely, and pay attention to the clues/questions! >;D

Hello, everyone! Looks like things are starting to cool down over here, but this new season isn't going to make me fall behind in my WTUs. Hopefully that goes for you all as well. Let's see what this edition holds...as well as the last one!

Recent Results: Kyleisreal was last week's featured user. He joined the site on August 24, 2008, mains Snake, and has seven tournament medals. Blazerlicious, Sakram3nt, Minty Horse, SkOaRaAn, Eggo, Diska the Mocha lover, Legit, Tulat, Jewl Echo, and BrawlerJesse werethe first ten to guess correctly. Wow...it's been a while since I actually filled up the ten spots. I mean, true that it's been a while since I upped the cutoff number, but whenever I did, I fell short by quite a few users. Regardless, I'm impressed with the amount of participation. Congratulations to you all, and keep up the awesome work! icon_biggrin

And now, I present you all with this week's mystery submission. Good luck!

"Juggling is something I’ve been doing for years. While my other friends are busy playing sports or directing videos, I enjoy nothing more than to take out my clubs/balls/rings and practice some different juggling patterns (siteswaps). I’ve always been fascinated with object manipulation, and loved the simplicity of taking an everyday item and turning it into an art form. Thanks to my strong dedication, I have achieved the ability to juggle up to 7 balls, 5 clubs, and 8 rings! My goal is to one day perform for a vast crowd without freezing up. Because you see, unfortunately, I develop a bad case of stage fright whenever I am presented with a large audience. Though that’ll never stop me from furthering in my manipulative art!"

Well everyone, here we are again. Another Sunday, and another "Who's That User?"! I hope you all are just as psyched as you've been for the past couple of editions. Speaking of "past", check out what happened last time!

Last edition's results: Minty Horse was the featured user. He joined the site on February 8, 2010, mains Pikachu in Brawl, and has attended 24 tournaments. lobsterfest, BowLX, SkOaRaAn, Ezio Auditore, and Eggo were the first five to guess correctly, so kudos to them!

Hello again, AiB! Sorry for the long wait, but with playoffs kicking off, a new promotion (ASK FOR NAME CHANGES PLEASE!), and school starting up, I figured I'd give the members some time to let life sink in before I resumed. I guess not much will change; unless some big event goes on, WTUs will still be on Sundays (same time, same place). But enough chatter, let's get to what matters!

Last edition's results: It's a good thing I made the WTU group and kept tabs, otherwise I would've completely forgotten everything for this! So, the featured user from #29 was none other than jarvitz! He joined the site on December 14, 2008, mains Funky Kong in Mario Kart Wii, and has created one stage. Participation was much better for this edition, and we had a filled roster. Congratulations to luigimaster51, Maize, person13nebur, SkOaRaAn, and SuperMarioMC for making it through! By the way, if you wish to see the results of the contest the day after, check this group out!

P.S. By my calculations, there will be eight more editions unless I get more PMs. It's not like I expect this to go on forever or anything, and you all are free to send in entries if you wish; I just wanted to say that #38 will be the last edition at the moment. Prepare yourselves, because I will make that one extra fun!
Another Sunday has arrived, so you know what this means. I welcome you to the 4th ladder update of the spring season! Now, you are wondering, "Why are you writing this for 2 bi-weeklys in a row?". Indeed, this is supposedly Invinicboy's turn to write this, but because he is on a little vacation for this weekend, he has requested that I will write it in his place. No worries, you'll see him around in the next one. Let's see where were at!

---

I do have a video for you, today. Then again, I realized I've been getting more doubles matches than singles as of recently, but it'd be nice to get a little variety once in awhile. Anyways, sent in by Keeby, he and Davidlazer have taken on Team Red! (Haha, I guess it's a good thing I'm writing this. Otherwise, Vince would've probably refuse to add this. *coughkirbyhatercough*)

Keeby (Kirby) / Davidlazer (Marth) vs. SuperMarioMC (Mr. Game & Watch) / SkOaRaAn (Marth)

(If you want to show off some ladder skills, feel free to send your video via PM to any of these inboxes: Invinciboy and yours truly, lightlanayru. Mocha is still on hiatus for the time being!)

Side-note: These top rankings have been taken at 9:20am PST on [06/26/11].

Notes


Singles:
  • After 4 weeks, ANTi and FOW the Creator have still secured the top 2 positions, despite their inactivity.
  • Meanwhile, lloD is slowly catching up, as he is 39 points behind FOW the Creator. At the same time, lloD and Nairo The Booty Warrior have switched 3rd and 4th place positions.
  • Currently, while FOW the Creator may be one of the undefeated, Atomsk joins him with 23 wins to no losses.
  • Up to this point, a few mid tier characters are getting some decent representation as these players continue to rise slowly on the rankings: lloD and SlayerZ as Peach, HolyNightmare and Raffi-X as R.O.B., Flyro as Toon Link, Keeby as Kirby, Waldo as Ike, and Luckay4Lyphe as Pit.
  • Top 5 Players with the Most Wins → FILIP (169), Z (125), Luckay4Lyphe (103), Amaterasu Okami (87), and SuperMarioMC (82).
  • Top 8 Players with the Highest Win % → FOW the Creator and Atomsk tie with a win % of 1.000, SlayerZ (.917), ANTi (.913), Waldo (.906), and Nairo The Booty Warrior, judge, and Flame tie with a win % of .889.


Doubles:
  • 'Midwest dabesssss' has managed to secure the 1st place spot, as they lead by 257 points. At the same time, the double R.O.B. team of 'You better ban Frigate mother ****ers!!' have jumped from 8th to being on the 2nd highest step of the ladder!
  • With the doubles ladder contuinuing to have a little bit of activity, we have 3 teams who have joined the top rankings: '({[Forever Guiding]}) - §Infinite Tornado§', 'GreenTeam R.I.P Henry-Sake', and 'Sexy Beasts'.
  • Top 5 Teams with the Most Wins → 'Midwest dabesssss' (37), 'Team Red' (26), 'U JELLY?' (24), 'Megapaw' (21), and 'Nanas, Nips, & Nuts' (16).


There is about a month remaning for those willing to reach the top 64 in singles and top 32 in doubles at the end of the season. If you haven't tried out the ladder yet, it won't hurt to do so. Not only will you be able to make a few friends and rivals, but you will also gain a lot of practice and learn how to get better with your mains. So without further ado, I hope you all have a good day today! Until next time, see ya~ :]
