Hello AiB! I hope everyone has been doing alright, and I hope the ladder has been challenging and enjoyable. With the upcoming Spring Break and with us drawing closer and closer to the end of this season’s ladder, there is still time to join if you haven’t already, and maintaining your score so that it won’t stale too much from inactivity.  Or if you have a goal to get top ranked in singles/doubles/both, now is a good time to work on that.

Something I also want to bring up is the matter of the character mains listed for the people mentioned in these updates. I want all of you to understand that how this works is, your main gets listed by your ladder feedback and the character mains you have listed on your profile. The more specific you are with who you main, the easier it is for your mains to get listed here correctly. If your mains are not getting listed here correctly, then go to your profile and show what characters you have been using by installing the 'Super Smash Brothers Brawl'. Or send me and Trish a PM with the characters you wanted listed for the update, that way we can be as accurate as possible. Thank you.

In the spectator's corner, we finally have a ladder video for you, sent by Neitzel. It is a doubles ladder match, and I must say, this one has been a good fight! Enjoy!

Neitzel (Meta Knight) / Raffi-X (R.O.B.) vs. FOW (Meta Knight) / M to the Ekos (Lucas)

As usual, I want to remind everyone that if you have any replays of your best ladder matches and you’d like to share it and have it featured on here for the ladder updates, feel free to send them to me or Trish via PMs. Depending on how much we get, we will pick a max of 2 videos to post for both the singles and doubles in the next ladder update. Finally, here is our fifth ladder update for this season.

Side-note: These top rankings have been taken on 10:15 pm CST on Friday [03/11/11].
Disclaimer: Thanks to Diska for helping me get these rankings done much faster than I would have done, due to my recently busy time schedule.

Notes

Singles:

- Salem remains in the lead with his Zero Suit Samus. In fact, ZSS seems to be getting decent representation for this ladder. MeroKnight, Zero Heart, and xxpatgxx have also been a great job showing off our underrated, agile bounty hunter.
- FOW (10 – 0) and Waymas (19 – 0) have a winning streak with no losses. Will they be able to maintain that streak?
- We have eight people join us for this ladder update, and they weren’t on the last ladder update: eeVeeT, L_Cancel, Waymas, xxpatgxx, Vermanubis, Super Saiyajin, MintyFlesh, and So Fatal.
- Vermanubis makes it to the top rankings with Ganondorf. Yes, ladies and gentlemen. Let the King of Evil relish in his moment of glory for a change. Good job, Verm!
- Zebra and Waft continue representing their Wario, respectively. Waymus joins in as well.
- Top Five Players with the Most Wins → ADHD (192), Zero Heart (147), Jules (146), Zebra (128), and MeroKnight (102).


Doubles:

- Flame’s Team leads the doubles rankings with double Meta Knight.
- Two teams have been added to this ladder update, and they weren’t in the last: Bettar den u and TEAM TIMOTEI
- Team ‘Just fartin in the dark’ went from being 15th place in the last update, to being 4th on this one. Nice job catching up, Chimpakt and Waft.
- The Ragnell Legends maintain their position with their double Ike team.
- Top Six Teams with the Most Wins → Flame’s Team (44), DLK (29), Fiendnation (24), Team Red (21), and Muramasa Baby! (20).



This season’s ladder ends on March 31st.. There’s still time to catch up on your score if you’re behind on decay, and to join the ladder if you haven’t already. Congratulations to everyone who participated in the ladder. Keep working hard, and have a great Spring Break everyone =)
Hey AiB! How has everyone been doing? As most of have you probably gathered by now, Trish and I are collaborating on the AiB ladder updates for this season. This is my second article for you guys, and I hope it’s an improvement from my first. Thank you everyone for being patient and supportive as I get adjusted more to the Content Team. I would also like to thank Diska for helping me with the doubles ladder rankings, and making sure I had their teams’ mains and rankings in check =)

Now that we got that out of the way, there is one more point I would like to address that I didn’t on my first update. If you have any replays of your best ladder matches and you’d like to share it and have it featured on here for the ladder updates, feel free to send them to me or Trish via PMs. Depending on how much we get, we will post a max of 2 videos to post for the next ladder update.

Side-note: These top rankings have been taken on 5:00 am on Saturday [02/12/11].

Notes


Singles:

  • ADHD is still in the lead with a respectable 152 wins. He is also the only one consistently using Diddy who’s currently ranked.
  • Raffi-X stays high in the rankings being the only R.O.B and Alphicans as Mr. Game and Watch.  Going further down the tier list
  • Kimchi joins in with his Ike, and M to the Ekos continues displaying his Lucas. Good job guys!
  • Mcpeepants and Kain keep stepping it up with Wolf.
  • burntsocks (with an additional Yoshi and Snake), Aegis Angel Admiral Pit (all Pit), and Luckay4Lyphe (and Pikachu)  bring Pit into the light. Aegis Angel Admiral Pit has also taken an impressive leap half-way across the ladder rankings since the last ladder update. Nice work, Pits.
  • Zebra and Waft continue with their Wario, while lordDtimeouT and SlayerZ keep representing their Peach.
  • The following players were not ranked in the last update but join in for this one: Koolaid, Ramona Flowers, ChinaLee, judge, Dnyce, raytay824, Kimchi, Mintyflesh, and Luckay4Lyphe.  
Doubles:

  • M to the Ekos and FOW lead the rankings with their amazing Lucas and Ness team.
  • Teams ( We both lost to Wolf, we r gud, Sunshine Snuggle Brigade~) currently have an undefeated streak! How far will they be able to maintain that streak?
  • Double, double, toil and trouble! Flame and Zakalicious join in double Meta Knight while Adam Gibson and Bizkit go double Snake.
  • Muramasa Baby! has been the only team who kept the same position since the last ladder update.
  • Top 5 teams with the most wins: Flame’s Team (31), DLK (22), Muramasa Baby! (19), Team Red (18), and Chinchilla Bros (16).  

Remember, the ladder ends on March 31st.. There’s still plenty of time to catch up on your score if you’re behind on decay, and to join the ladder if you haven’t already. Once again, congratulations to everyone who participated in the ladder. Keep working hard guys! ^_^
mikeHAZE: After writing up the last Tournament Analysis article, I quickly realized that I couldn't do this alone, so I had to bring someone with me!  Please welcome our East Coast Representative, AlliieD.
 
 
AlliieeD: Hey, what's up all?  This is Allied from New York and  I'll be reporting to you about the hottest tournaments this side of the US.
 
We're a little late this week, please forgive us; we'll be back to a normal schedule on the next article.
 
This past weekend, East Coast Brawl attended Super DSO 2, a tournament being run by ChiboSempai who is a well known host as well as a great player in the Smash community.  
 
The tournament ran Singles and Doubles for both Brawl and Brawl+.
 
Brawl Singles:
 
1: Atomsk
2: Squall
3: Ninjalink
4: Inui
5: Malcolm
5: ChiboSempai
7: MintyFlesh
7: Izumi
 
Brawl Singles had some pretty interesting results.  Atomsk placed first, which is nothing out of the ordinary, but the battle to first place is something to be talked about.
 
As you see, Squall got second place.  If you're unfamiliar with Squall then let me enlighten you.
 
Squall is considered PA's best player (I don't know if it's official yet).  Last weekend was disappointing for him: he placed 17th at Asylum, losing to Deltacod, who is New Jersey's best Yoshi. Squall was kinda depressed at DSO, questioning even entering the tournament, but with some support from Vex Kesrani and I he decided to enter. 
 
Squall had an INSANELY tough bracket.  He showed us that he's a force to reckoned with. In winners bracket, he took out players like Nasty, Will - who is considered the best Donkey Kong, Ninjalink, Inui, and then finally in Winners' Finals he took out Atomsk.
 
Stacked bracket if you ask me.  
 
In the losers' bracket, Atomsk took out Ninjalink for second place.  Ninjalink, who got 3rd, had an impressing killing spree in losers' bracket after being knocked out by Squall early on in the tournament.  In losers' he defeated Xzax, Mintyflesh, Inui, and Malcolm before losing to Atomsk. 
 
Ninjalink definitely showed off his amazing Diddy Kong once again in the tournament, as well as his surprise guest: Pikachu.
 
Surprising results, and a very fun tournament. As far as tournament hosting, let's give shout outs to Chibo! He did a very good job. And special shout outs to Alex Strife for making a guest hosting appearance. 
  
  
  
mikeHAZE: Yo guys, this is mikeHAZE and I'll be bringing you the scoop on what happened on West Coast's regional tournament this past weekend - TourneyPlay #5.
 
This was the fifth tournament being run by GCguy (Chris), owner of Gameclucks - a gamestore residing in Washington.  GCguy has been known for hosting some well run, well hyped tournaments, so it was good to see him out in Southern California running a regional outside of his comfort zone.
 
The two day tournament saw a plethora of different games: Brawl, Melee, Halo 3, Super Street Fighter 4, Call of Duty: MW2, and TVC.
 
Brawl had 79 entrants for singles, which included players from all over the West Coast, as well as a special Midwest guest - Mew2King.
 
Singles Results:
 
1: Mew2King
2: Tyrant
3: mikeHAZE
4: DSF
5: Darklink
5: DEHF
7: Rich Brown
7: Warpstatus
 
The first question you may ask yourself: Who is Darklink?  Well first, he doesn't main Link.  Darklink is a Meta Knight player, who is also considered the best player in Arizona.  In the winners' bracket, he defeated Tyrant, Erow, and was then sent to losers' bracket by mikeHAZE in Winners' Semifinals.
 
Warpstatus and Rich Brown did really well as you can see.  They actually played each other first match of Pro Bracket, with Rich Brown taking the win in a close 2-1 set.  Rich also took out Zex before being sent to losers bracket by Mew2King.
 
Warpstatus had a good run considering his loss vs. Rich in the first bracket match.  In losers bracket he took out Brent, Tearbear, FOW, and CPU before losing an intense, last match set vs. DEHF.
 
DEHF took a early loss in the winners' bracket after losing to mikeHAZE 2-1, and was later taken out by DSF when they met in losers'.
 
In winners' finals, mikeHAZE played Mew2King.  Unfortunately (yes, I'm biased) Mike lost to Mew2King 3-1. 
 
In the losers' bracket Mike faced Tyrant, who made quite a comeback in losers' bracket despite his early defeat.  After his loss vs. Darklink, he defeated: Typh, Oki, Fiction, Rich Brown, Darklink, DSF (who forfeited), then finally faced and defeated mikeHAZE in Losers' Finals 3-1.  Tyrant met Mew2King in grand finals where he lost 3-0.
 
Mew2King dominates once again.  With MLG coming up pretty soon everyone is wondering if he will be able to stay static with his wins.
  I had been to one tournament at the Mineola Game Table before and had a blast, so I had been planning a return venture for a while. It was raining most of the day and I rode my bike all the way from Adelphi University to the tournament, which took about 30 minutes. I came for Brawl singles mostly, which was set for 5 PM approximately, but Melee singles and doubles had already been going on previously downstairs and Brawl doubles were set to start at 8 PM.

The Mineola Game Table is located at 167 East Jericho Turnpike in Mineola, New York and is one location that is worth visiting, especially for a Smash tournament. This fine establishment has two floors, both of which are used for a variety of tournaments. The manager is Mr. Gumby, or Mr. G as many call him, and he’s one of the nicest guys around. He allows multiple tournaments at the Game Table, such as Melee and Brawl and sells a variety of games, cards and more! The store has several big screen televisions set up on a daily basis for different systems, a bathroom for anyone to use, two vending machines and computers to play games on in the back.
