Welcome to the eighth and final Fall Ladder Update! I apologize for not giving you guys an update last week, due to my recent absence from home, but I am back and here to keep you all updated once again! Looking back from the last update 2 weeks ago, the rankings have scrambled quite a bit! There are still new names popping up last minute as the battle for the top 60 continue, the threshold becoming harder to get to every day! It's quite exciting to see really, but anyways, lets take a look into what this past week had in store for us!

    • Mango Bunz, Debom and Mango254, still sit in 1st place, very close to receiving this season's crown!
    • Junebugx and Sanoscy return from last season and take 3rd place with only 11 wins!

    There is only a few days left in this Fall season! Time is ticking away and with over $350 in cash prizes in both ladders and several badges to be given out afterwards, there is much to brawl for! It's still early in the season so these rankings could change completely, or stay almost the same. We'll see in these upcoming weeks what happens! I will hopefully continue to keep the All is Brawl community updated on our singles and doubles ladder every week, starting in the official Winter Season! There is very tough competition out there and these people are no joke, so congratulations to the top 32 in singles and top 16 in doubles for placing so far! We wish you all good luck for anyone seeking to be at the top and make it to playoffs!

    Editors Note: The Up/Down arrow images are temporarly not available.

    Welcome to the seventh Fall Ladder Update! Last week, I decided to remove the Doubles Ladder rankings from the last update. After thinking about it for a bit, I have came to the conclusion of re-adding it back to the updates, as it may attract more members to participate in the ladder. As we look into both of the ladders, there has been quite a stir of rank placements! In singles, we have many players very close to each other, where if one game versus the right player is won, they will pass quite a few members! The same thing goes for doubles as well! Looking at the calendar, there are essentially 17 days left until the season is over and the playoffs begin! That's not even 3 weeks! Anyways, lets take a look into what this past week had in store for us!

    There are less than 3 weeks left in this Fall season!

    Welcome to the sixth Fall Single Ladder Update! October is now over, leaving us all with 1 more month left before the season is over. This past week in singles has been pretty action packed when it comes to the top players of the ladder! Many of them have moved around from their normal spots as they all begin to play more matches. And of course, the requirement in skill points to be in the top 32, or even the top 60, becomes harder to reach! As for doubles, I decided to stop adding it in the updates because it really isn't active at all, which isn't exciting at all. But anyways, with all this commotion and what not in the rankings, let's see what this past week has in store for us!

    What is the blog game?

    The blog game is a fun little game that Enrish and a few others came up with. It's started off as just a small game where you had to basically go through a series of blogs and click on the correct links until you would finally reach the winning blog.

    This is the same as the first game, but taken up a notch. Enrish and a bunch of other people have worked hard to make a new better and more challenging game this time round.

    How to play the game?

    To play the game, first you will need to start HERE. This is the starting blog to the game. This will be activated on October 24th at 4pm Eastern Time. So keep an eye out on that link. From that link there may be multi links or some other kind of puzzle to take you to the next part of the game. I can not say for certain what it will be because even I don't know this.

    The blogs will give links, hints or other puzzles that you will have to work out to bring you to the next section. Some times you may even have to go onto Youtube to get to the next stage. There isn't really much more to say about how to play this. It is really quite simple but just needs you to think a bit and think outside the box to get through.

    So I herd you like badges?

    If the answer to that is yes, you are in luck, because this blog game brings 2 new badges. One is for the first 5 people to finish this game. They will get the winners badge. The next is for the next 20 people, they will win the runner up badge. So there is a jolly good chance of you winning a badge in this game.


    Things you need to know.


    1. You will need a youtube account.

    2. Posting anywhere besides where you are asked to can void your badge.

    3. You can post in the beginning blog.

    4. If we find out that you have shared information with another
      person before badges are handed out both people will not be given a
      badge this game or the following game.

    5. HAVE FUN!

    What has Mr. Enrish got to say?

    I set up a bunch of question to ask Enrish about his blog game. This is what he has to say.

    1.) How did you come up with the idea for the blog game?

    "Well one day I saw kirrrby make a blog where all it held was a link to
    that exact blog. I've seen that before and always found it pretty
    funny. I then saw The740's blog that had a hyperlink to kirrrby's blog
    when it really logged you out. I then made a blog having one link go to
    The740's blog and the other go to a fail picture. After that I just
    thought it'd be cool to have a long chain of blogs. I never thought of
    this being an official game until after it went public."

    2.) Did you come across any problems or difficulties when making the game? If so how did you overcome them?

    "I would say overall the first game was terrible. I hate to sound stupid
    but I had no clue if you put your mouse over a hyperlink it would show
    you where the link really takes you. Besides that the beginning was
    really hard. I asked kirrrby, samboner and The740 to help me. I told
    them how to make the blog so all they had to do was make it. Then there
    was an account mix up, one person didn't understand what I was saying
    and Cheese joined in at the last minute. We had the day planned but
    never a time so it was easy to move time back a bit. Then I realized I
    told people to leave me a shoutout with the answer, instead of sending
    me a PM so I had to delete every shoutout."

    3.) How has this been improved since the first one?

    "The game has been improved in every way in my opinion. This game's
    difficulty will tenfold the last one. It's going to be longer, meaning
    more pages to explore. I've added more pictures as requested by many
    people. There are official badges now so people don't complain when
    they don't get anything, lol. The game goes outside of photobucket and
    AiB. The game is more strict and it's way harder to cheat now. I
    basically looked at the suggestions by others and put them in the best
    way I could."

    3a.) Have you learned anything from the last one?

    "Don't use hyperlinks the way I did in the first game. Everything was
    too easy. I learned that I should do more than links and to get out of
    AiB. I learned a lot overall, I'd just like not to reveal them."

    4.) Will there be more blog games after this?

    "There should be. I don't want these badges to be made just for one
    game. I plan on hosting one every 2 months or so. I expect every game
    to get more difficult."

    4a.) If so do you think it will be harder to come up with new ideas and different things to implement into the game?

    "I think that will be the hardest part about continuing this game. It's
    the biggest thing I fear. I used so many new ideas for this upcoming
    game, I don't know what else could be used, but something will come up
    sooner or later."

    5.) How long does it take to get it all set up?

    "It's hard to say because it's been spread out over two months time. It
    took a good two to four weeks to find more ideas. I had a great amount
    of help from people. Besides that it takes a long time. Just last week
    I was trying to figure out exactly what pages to use and what order
    they'd be in and that alone took me 4 hours. I then had to figure out
    25 to 35 clues/links which has taken about two hours. I'd say overall
    it has take me 10 hours to do everything from getting ideas, to
    organizing stuff to setting it all up."

    6.) How hard do you think people will find this?

    "I believe many people will find it very hard but others will go through
    it with ease. Like I said though, the difficulty of this game tenfolds
    the last game. Last game could be done in about a minute for some, I
    think the fastest this game will be done in is 10 minutes. I'm not even
    going to lie though, I'd really like someone to tell me they cried or
    throw their keyboard because the game was possibly too hard. I just
    don't think that will happen. "

    I end with this

    I would like to finish off by saying thank you to Enrish and everyone else who helped out, I am sure this is going to be a blast. So to everyone that's taking part, good luck and I hope you enjoy all the time and hard work that has gone into this.

    Notes

    • There are 2059 players signed up on the singles ladder.
    • Dabuz, the Spring Singles Ladder Champion, just took 1st place agai.
    • Samboner, another well-known name, is taking 3rd so far with Fox and Luigi.
    • On the top 32, there are 7 Meta Knight and 6 Snake users so far.
    • Each player has at least suffered 1 loss, so no one is currently undefeated.
    • Top 5 players with the most wins are Sazmotaz (140), Atomsk (135), Dannykat (131), llodownedu (83), and Gamemastersuperstar (76).
    • 9 players have over 2000 points.
    • These rankings were taken at 6:30AM ET on Monday, September 28, 2009.
    There are still over 2 months left in this Fall season! With over $350 in cash prizes and several badges to be given out afterwards, there is much to brawl for! It's still early in the season, so these rankings could change completely, or stay almost the same. We'll see in these upcoming weeks what happens! I will hopefully continue to keep the All is Brawl community updated on our singles ladder every week! There is very tough competition out there and these people are no joke, so congratulations to the top 32 for placing so far! We wish good luck to anyone seeking to be at the top and make it to playoffs!

    Welcome to the first Spring Singles Ladder Update! We're off to an exciting start on the new ladder season and things have already gotten quite heated as the weather has warmed up! Most of last season's top finishers are there, but there are some notable exceptions...Let's take a look at who's on top in the Singles Ladder lately!

    • This list was taken on Friday, May 22nd, 2009 at roughly 5:00 PM CST.
    • At the time of the writing, MidnighT__, HolyNightmare, and Fact all have perfect records!
    • HolyNightmare has only played 10 games, yet ranks high enough to place in the top 8!
    • The Canada smash scene really is pretty awesome. There are 3 high ranking Canadians on the list: HolyNightmare, FatalX, and Dazed_and_Confused.
    • The Kong family is well represented this time around, particularly with Donkey Kong all the way at spot number 5, played by J-Katz.
    Joenopride's Outlook

    Because of how active the ladder is, it's pretty likely that by the time this article is printed the rankings will be pretty out of date. I figured maybe it would be cool if I did a couple of my gut feelings on what will be happening to the rankings. So I'm guessing:

    1. HolyNightmare will continue his lossless streak and move into the Top 5.
    2. CutestLilLucario will play a flurry of games and either jump into the twenties, or drop out of the top 32.
    3. One of the Snakes from either FatalX or LiKanG will move up and separate from the pack.

    So there was the first ladder update of this season! I hope you enjoyed it! If you haven't gotten involved yet, get right onto the ladder! Plus, don't forget about that spiffy new Doubles Ladder Neal worked hard on bringing us! Until the next ladder update - Happy Brawling!

    After making it into the field of 60 for our Winter Ladder Playoffs, Dabuz, the 8th seed, won the month long event last Thursday. He defeated the ladders first seed, Ally, in a close 4 game finale.

    A big congratulation goes out to Dabuz and all the other finishers in the ladder playoffs.

    1. Dabuz - $200
    2. Ally - $100
    3. Samboner - $50
    4. CutestlilLucario - $20

    There are so many fantastic, talented players in the playoffs that it's tough to keep track of all of the personalities and people involved. That's why the ladder content team here at AllIsBrawl decided to do a series of interviews featuring some of the top finishers of the Spring 2009 ladder.

    Zolga: Thanks for taking time to talk to me. Would you mind telling me about yourself?
    Samboner: My real name is Sam. I like taking long walks on the beach at night, hot showers, and just having fun.
    Zolga: Haha, right. Good honest answer. What do you like about Smash?
    Sam: When I was little I played Nintendo games (Mario, Metroid, etc). I guess I like Smash because I like playing as Nintendo characters.
    Zolga: Why did you join AiB?
    Sam: I used to go to GameFaqs for matches. Everyone left me for AiB. So I joined too.
    Zolga: Would you say you are addicted to the Ladder?
    Sam: Well not really...No I'm not, addicted would be CutestLittleLucario. He has like six hundred matches. I have like one hundred.
    Zolga: Stop hating :P
    Sam: No, I'm just saying.
    Zolga: Haha I know. Okay, describe your most recent Playoff match.
    Sam: My match with Dabuz was...intense.
    Zolga: Haha, wow, that sounds intense alright.
    Sam: His Olimar is too good.
    Zolga: What would you describe your play style as?
    Sam: I spam nado. Uhhh, spam I guess.
    Zolga: So you don't see spam as a bad thing?
    Sam: Whatever it takes to win baby.*
    Zolga: What do you like most about a good match? How about your one against Dabuz as an example.
    Sam: I learn from good matches. Against Dabuz I learned that Olimar was cheap and annoying.
    Zolga: Careful the Olimar mains will smite you.
    Sam: Don't worry Metaknight is cheaper.
    Zolga: What character would you say you play best as and why?
    Sam: Fox by far, his moveset is perfect for me. His speed and down air are great. Lasers are cool too.
    Zolga: How do you feel about playing Metaknights in matches?
    Sam: Noob Metas are easy.Good Metas, Hell no.
    Zolga: If you could choose who would you like to play against more?
    Sam: Catastrophe, he is good with like all characters. Its fun playing him.
    Zolga: Two more questions and were done. When you win whats the first thing you do?
    Sam: I run around the house yelling while naked.**
    Zolga: Ok..Last one, why the name "samboner"?
    Sam: Well I know on my profile it says I had a boner while makign this acccount. Thats a lie.
    Zolga: Aww, it would be pretty epic if that was the truth.
    Sam: Yeah, but really my last name kind of sounds like boner. Also my friends call me Boner.
    Zolga: That would be pretty awkward if someone mispronounces your name.
    Sam: Yeah well I think its funny.

    Well there you go. Sam is a spammy Fox, has a funny last name, and is a great guy to interview. Funny too. I hope you enjoyed the interview.

    Author's Notes
    *He was being sarcastic here.
    **He was joking here, really he just said he does nothing.

    Editor's Notes: (2)Samboner finished 3rd in the AllisBrawl Ladder Playoffs. He lost to (8)Dabuz in the Winner's Finals and (1)Ally in the Loser's Finals. Congratulations to Samboner on an amazing season.

    We just wrapped up the Winter Ladder season yesterday which means today is the day we announce our Ladder Playoff Schedule! This seasons playoffs will be double elimination, which means you must lose two best-of-three sets before you are eliminated.

    Here's how the playoffs work. Each week there will be meeting times for playing out the bracket. The tournament bracket contains the top 60 players from AiB's Fall Ladder Season with the top 4 players receiving byes in Winner's Bracket Round 1. Each player will be expected to meet in Tournament Chat Room 4 at 10:00PM ET on these scheduled days. If players know they cannot attend a selected time they should contact their opponent to schedule a new time before said selected time occurs. In addition to this, send AlphaZealot a PM to inform him of the situation. All rescheduled matches must occur before the next scheduled round (one to four day grace period, depending when the conflict occurs). Failing to be in Tournament Chat Room 4 at 10:00PM may result in a forfeit. *

    *If one player fails to show up at the scheduled time (without having rescheduled) the player who did show up is advanced. If both players fail to show up at the scheduled time the higher seeded player will be advanced.

    Weekly Ladder Update Numbah Nine.  This is the last one.  Wow, we’ve come a long way.  There is still some time left to make it into the top 32, but I doubt anyone wants to give up their position this late in the game.

    (Rankings taken at 1 PM on Friday, March 27th.)

    Comments

    • ViceGrip is the only low-tier main in the top 5 and that is amazing to say the very least
    • Ally entered the ladder mid-season and reached the top of the rankings and has only lost once.
    • The highest jump within the list goes to King KeyKeyKey with Yoshi at 12 spots
    • …and the largest fall on the list goes to __X__ with Sonic at 7 spots.
    • CutestLilLucario deserves recognition for playing the most games out of everyone on the list.
    • …and hateoni deserves a pat on the back for placing relatively high with the fewest amount of games played out of everyone on the list.
    • Highest Win Percentages: Hateoni: 100%; xXLightningBladeXx: 100%; Ally: ~98%
    • Most of a Specific Character: 9 Meta Knights; 5 Snakes; 3 R.O.B.s.

    The ladder will be closing soon, and immediately after that the play-offs will commence.  Expect a little piece from AlphaZealot regarding the play-offs next week.  With this season alone we’ve seen Brawl’s first birthday and how far we’ve come from those early Sakurai announcements to the meta-game as it stands today.  Pit really did deserve to be high tier, huh?  Joking aside, congratulations to these fine groups of players, and if you’re not on this list, you better get cranking on those games.  If hateoni could do it with 13, I’m sure the competitive ones out there will find their lucky number.  I’ve had a great time keeping up with the ladder and I hope next season will be as entertaining as far as participants and tidbits go.  I’ll see you all later.

    Oh, and if you’re going to SCSA #3, be sure to witness my once-in-a-lifetime team up with ViceGrip!

    Have you checked your calendars yet?  The playoffs are fast approaching...be ready!
    The competition is fierce and for that, congratulations to the top 32 for getting there. Good luck to you all.

    A note to all Ladder Participants: it would really help those doing the updates if you had Main = ___ somewhere on your signature. Some of you have your main there but those doing the update wouldn't get your main wrong if that was clearly shown.  It would also cut down the time it takes to do an update dramatically and eliminate the comment searching. Thanks :)

    Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for an article on Spam from me! ;)

    Welcome to Weekly Ladder Update #6-and-a-half. It’s 1am as I write this, Tuesday morning, and I want to first apologize to everyone for being a bit late in getting this done.  I had an exciting weekend in San Francisco attending B.I.O. 2 and to top off a perfect 3-day escape, I came back to a surprising top 32 to comment on.  The end of the season is quickly creeping up, and hopefully that’ll put competition into high gear.  Here are the numbers.

    Ladder Rankings

    Notes
    • These numbers were pulled down on Monday, February 23rd, 6:30 pm.
    • Only one person broke into the top ten that’s Atomsk.
    • The highest low-tier main on this list is Vice Grip at #11.  He uses Ness.
    • The biggest drop in rank goes to KingKeyKey who fell to #22 from #15; the biggest jump goes to jband, from #25 to #19; the highest newly ranked person is dongetmadokbye at #13.
    • The top three all have only one loss.

    Have you checked your calendar’s yet?  There is little over a month left for this season’s ladder, but all that means is that for those of you that want the money, recognition, and bragging rights… step it up!  The top 32 is slowly solidifying as the jumps and drops are not as drastic as in weeks past.  These people want to keep their spots.  The competition is fierce and for that, congratulations to the top 32 for getting there.  And cheers and good luck to everyone else who wants to make it to the top.

    Welcome to the fifth Weekly Ladder Update! When I went to look up the ladder rankings for this week I was completely surprised, yet slightly prepared for some of the changes I was about to see. Familiar faces in unusual places is the theme for this week, which just goes to prove that the All is Brawl ladder will never get boring.

    There's about a month and half to go until the ladder ends, and its clear that there is plenty of time for anyone to make an impact on the ladder. With badges, recognition, and over $350 of prizes up fro grabs the ladder will continue to be interesting. Congratulations to this week's Top 32 and good luck to all ladder participants.

    Ally beat out Sanoscy 3-1 in the Ladder Playoff Finals last night. Ally will take home the top prize of $200. In the consolation match Dabuz beat out Samboner for third place and $50.

    So, I recently had the chance to sit down with two great, and modest, players. Our 3rd/4th place AiB Fall Ladder Playoff finishers (placing tbd) Dabuz and Samboner to hear about some thoughts, predictions, and all that good stuff.

    JV_: Alright, so first off a big congrats guys. Samboner and Dabuz, top 4 in the AiB Fall Ladder. Out of 3,107 players to make it into the top 4 is a pretty amazing accomplishment. Thats a lot of smashers you beat out. So when you guys think just how far you made it whats the first thing that comes to mind?

    dabuz: the first thing that came to my mind is i guess im not that much of a noob as i thought

    samboner: the first thing i think is that, if i can do it without high/top tiers, anyone can do it!

    JV_: Haha, not being as big of a noob as you previously thought is always a good thing. As is without top tiers! So speaking of that whats your guys weapon, errr character of choice? Any secondary?

    samboner: well, fox is my main. He does good against like half of the roster. the other half i use for luigi, my 2nd. >.>

    dabuz: my preference of characters is that lil retarded midget that everyone seems to hate, lolimar! and i do play two other very annoying characters as well, kerby and spamus
