C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER! (You know, because Sumer wrote the last four articles? lol) Anyway, hello and welcome to another edition of "Who's That User?" Unless a freak accident occurs, I'll most likely be posting these every other Friday, so keep your eyes out. Now, about the last Friday I did...

Results: Zork the Buttplug was the featured user. He joined the site on May 4, 2008, mains Fox in both Melee and the original Smash Bros., and his favorite Nintendo 64 game is Vigilante 8. Only three users, Raffi-X, simpleblast, and Scruff The Troll Sovereign guessed correctly. It seems most of you were afraid to give this a try because the group was a little...big. Well, if you actually gave it a shot, you'd see it wasn't so bad (especially with Ctrl+F). Oh well...this edition's featured user may raise your spirits and encourage more participation. By the way, if you wish to see the results of the contest the day after, 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!

Well everyone, here's today's entry. Let's see if you have what it takes to succeed!

"I've played the Accordion for a few years and am practicing the guitar, I like to write (a soliloquy I wrote one this writing contest) and my favorite food ever is chocolate. One time I me and a few friends took a cake and just piled it with all sorts of chocolates and donated to a homeless shelter. It was good times."


In addition to what's above, this user...
-is in the group I thought I was good at Brawl until I joined AiB.
-has an "r" in the username.
-joined the site in July 2009.

And the questions you need to answer about this user are as follows:
1. Who does this user main in Tekken 6?
2. Who does this user main in Guilty Gear XX ACP?
3. Who does this user main in Marvel vs. Capcom 2?

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

By the way, if you want to try to be featured in an article of “Who’s That User?”, just send me a PM with a cool, unique thing about yourself that possibly no one knows about you. However, just make sure this thing can’t be found anywhere on your profile (About Me, videos, blogs, tournaments, etc.) There’s no guarantee that you’ll be chosen, but if the random name picker I’ll use selects your name, you shall receive the WTU Featured User badge (as long as you don’t say anything to the other users)! So what are you waiting for? Send in for play, and maybe get featured one day! ^^ (Note: those that already sent in something do not need to resend.)
Hey hey hey, All is Brawl! After completing a rigorous month of AP exams and my final year of high school (funny how my graduation was on the 25th, and this is the 25th edition!), I'm back with another "Who's That User?" to tantalize your minds! (I'd say taste buds, but they haven't invented technology you can taste yet. Maybe one day...) This will also give me a good chance to experiment with more techniques, since the last edition seemed to be somewhat successful with participation. Speaking of last edition...

Le Results: Pitzer was the featured user of the last edition. He joined the site on June 26, 2008, mains Jigglypuff in the original Smash Bros., and is a fan of Lili Rochefort. While my combination for clues may have been super easy, it did prove to be successful. Out of the waterfall of submissions, Raffi-X, Kimmi (previously chiiiiii), Akiro, Zeffen, and Blue Yoshi emerged as the victors. Congrats! By the way, if you wish to see the results of the contest the day after, check this group out!

This PM was rather large, so I just took a good chunk of something the user likes to do. Here it is!

"Things about me:

   My favorite Sport is Fishing, Ever Since I was given my first fishing pole when I was 5 I always loved going fishing.I hardly went fishing throughout the years but When I did it was simply fun and amazing.Recently Last summer I had a chance to fish again when I went out of state to Kansas; Although, I ended up not catching anything but my girlfriend did xD.Fishing is the patient sport.I don't see nothing boring about sitting there for several hours or maybe minutes."


In addition to that, this user...
-is in the group Official TCG Trading & Support Group.
-is from California, according to his/her profile.
-mains Meta Knight. (That's all I need to say, lol)
-joined in Spring 2008.

And the questions you need to answer for this user are as follows:
1. When exactly did this user join the site?
2. Who does this user main in Melee?
3. What is this user's favorite N64 game? (NOT LOCATED IN FAVORITE GAMES)

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

Hello and welcome to a Wednesday edition of your lives. My name is Invinciboy, and I will be your server. Our special today is "Who's That User?" #24, with a new featured user on the side. For now, though, here are your appetizers.

"I think Im an excellent candidate for WTU.

I can sum some things that a lot of people don't know not even my friends irl.


I have a passion for voice acting and singing. I was a band student for 6 years. Trumpet Player, I also was in Jazz band. I was offered a chance to be in chorus but I declined. I'm also a Great Chess player. I was was playing chess since I was 8 Years old. Back In Germany we had a chess club, and they would have  chess tournaments. The first one I went to I came in 3rd place. Losing to a 16 and 18 year old. I also like to draw, I was eager to draw after my dad showed me his drawings when I was 6. I guess it runs in the family since me and my sister are both talented at that. Also one Year during Band our Music director made a bet with us, saying if we got all superior's at Festival he would shave his head and draw a blue arrow like the avatar, and guess what we did icon_smile we got all superiors and got to shave his head the following weekday."


In addition to what's above, this user...
-is in the group I didn't choose my main after looking at a tier list.

And the questions you need to answer are as follows:

2. Who does this user main in the original Smash Bros.?

Hello, wondrous users of this interesting site! I've got yet another "Who's That User?" that's sure to put an ease on many of you. Why is this, you ask? Well, before we go into that...

Last edition's results: R.F.G was the lucky ducky to get featured in WTU #22. He joined the site on May 30, 2009 and mains Snake in Brawl (as well as Pikachu in the original Smash Bros.) The only new user was Ranger, and the returning champs were Raffi-X, Blue Yoshi, Ivy73, and dippin dots. Not the turnout I was expecting, but no matter. With every edition comes a chance for me to experiment with the future one(s). Regardless of what I want, though, congrats to the users that tried and succeeded!

Hello there users of All is Brawl, and I welcome you to another edition of "Who's That User?"! You know, I never predicted that I'd write an article on my birthday...but lo and behold, here I am! >XD Anyway, in honor of such an occassion, this edition will be super easy and have more room for winners. (Think of it as a birthday gift to all of you. icon_razz) Before that, however, we must see what happened last time. 

Last edition's results: The selected individual from WTU #21 was none other than Game Master Minamimoto. He joined the site on January 4, 2009, mains Wolf, and created two stages.

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

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 =)
Hello everyone, and welcome back to the game that's way better than the lottery! (Maybe not in difficulty, but hey...your odds of winning sure are greater!) Who will the user be this time, you ask? A better question is...who was that user last time? Let's find out!

Last edition's results: The featured fellow in WTU #20 was none other than KikiRukata! She joined the site on December 30, 2009, mains Toon Link and Daisy in their respected games, and enjoys reading, writing, and roleplaying in her spare time. She also likes piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, but that's a different story. Ivy73, Raptorking2000, and R.F.G were the succesful newcomers, and Raffi-X and Blue Yoshi were the successful oldcomers. Congrats to all, and please do continue to participate! (It puts bread on the table. icon_razz) By the way, if you wish to see the results of the contest the day after, check this group out!

Rules:
1. I will give you all an interesting fact about a particular user. 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!

One for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to...GOOOOOOOOO!

This user is a technology master. For starters, _____ likes robots and has built a plethora out of LEGOS, motors, PVC pipes, etc. Competitions are held every year that involve teams creating bots and having them complete certain objectives before the other succeeds, and this user typically excels in each. (Maybe if I'm really nice, ______ will make something for me. God knows I could use a servant to complete tasks I'm too lazy to do!) The love for all things cybernetic goes way beyond "simple" toys, however. ______ is pretty good at Java and C++, and was once part of a team that created Sea Percher models that would help solve numerous environmental issues (i.e oil spills). Basically, this user is my kind of...well, user, and I fully support ______ technological endeavors. Bullies and haters beware, because this user could become the next Bill Gates and take over the world!

In addition to the fact above, this user...
-is in the group All I Want Is A Beach Ball.
-has a "t" in the username or location.
-joined the site in Winter 2009.
-mains a D tier character, according to the Official BBR Tier List v5.

And the questions you need to answer are as follows:
1. When exactly did this user join the site?
2. Who is the main described above?
3. How many stages did this user make?

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

By the way, if you want to try to be featured in an article of “Who’s That User?”, just send me a PM with a cool, unique thing about yourself that possibly no one knows about you. However, just make sure this thing can’t be found anywhere on your profile (About Me, videos, blogs, tournaments, etc.) There’s no guarantee that you’ll be chosen, but if the random name picker I’ll use selects your name, you shall receive the WTU Featured User badge (as long as you don’t say anything to the other users)! So what are you waiting for? Send in for play, and maybe get featured one day! ^^ (Note: those that already sent in something do not need to resend.)
Welcome back to another edition of "Who's That User?", AiBers! Unlike the last edition, I've got something simple planned for all of you. That's right, you can ease back in your chairs and chillax. (If your chairs aren't capable of that, though, then don't risk an epic fail by falling!) But speaking of last time, let's see what went down before we start.

Last edition's results: Who was that user? *dramatic pause* It's Raffi-X! He joined the site on August 6, 2008, mains R.O.B. in SSBB/Kirby in SSBM, and had 26 medals (and now it's 27 from a recent tournament.) Supernitro and Blue Yoshi were the veteran winners, and RedRyukinRose and brawlveteran1 were the newbies. This was probably my toughest challenge yet, as I got way more wrong answers than right. Oh well...as I said, #20 is a breath of relief. Congrats to all the winners, and if you wish to see the results of the contest the day after, check this group out!

Rules:
1. I will give you all an interesting fact about a particular user. 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

Time to get this show on the road. Do it up, everyone!

This user is a wildlife fanatic. ______ loves everything nature so much that ______ decided to join a local foundation to protect Mother Nature's babies. But in addition to breeding and sheltering animals with the team ______assists, this user has taken care of different critters by ______self. ______ has had ten cats, three dogs, eight spiders, twelve snakes, three scorpions, one bird, one rat, and two hamsters in ______ lifetime. (Three cats is bad enough for my mom, but a whole array like this would drive her nuts!) On a final note, this user has lived by the forest ______ entire life, and doesn't plan to change that or ______ view on the wildlife. So someone better call Dr. Doolittle, because this user has arrived to take his place!

In addition to the fact above, this user...
-is in the group I only use a specific color of my character.
-has a "k" in the username, name, or location.
-joined in Winter 2009.
-mains a C tier character, according to the Official BBR Tier List v5.

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 Brawl?
3. Who does this user main in Mario Kart Wii?
4. What activities does this user enjoy? (Activities =/= Games)

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

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! ^_^
Hey, everyone! How's it going? I hope everyone has been alright. Well anyway... you probably thought I was gone or something, but that is not the case. I was unable to work on the first ladder update due to my return from hiatus at the time, and I hope that is understandable. I thank Mocha for whipping up an update for me while I was gone! Also, if you probably didn't realize, she is currently co-working with me for this season's ladder updates. This is something I wanted to try out and to see how things go, so please bear with us as we switch off on each ladder update. Oh, I've also kept to my promise and racked up the most accurate results I can get by taking in today's rankings. We shall see what goes on here!

(By the way, I know this wasn't posted in the first ladder update of this season, but I'm still open to doing this. If you guys have replays of your best ladder matches you'd like to share and have it featured on here for the ladder updates, feel free to send me or Mocha any via PMs! Depending on how much we get, she and/or I will most likely pick a maximum of 2 videos for both singles and doubles to post up in the next update. After all, the ladder updates do need a little more spice on 'em, yes?)

Side-note: These top rankings have been taken at 5:45 am PST on [01/29/11].

Notes

Singles:
  • ADHD is currently maintaining his position at the top of the ladder with a 92-point lead. How long will he be able to last?
  • This time around, despite more top tier dominance, we're starting to see some Pits (from burntsocks, Luckay4Lyphe, and Aegis Angel Admiral Pit), Wolfs (from Mcpeepants and Kain), and a Mr. G&W (from Alphicans) added to the character variety from players un-ranked 2 weeks ago. Great job, you guys! And also, we have a Lucas added to the mix, as M to the Ekos is currently placing high with him. Very unique choice, I must say!
  • The biggest drop in the ladder at this time is Stingers, dropping from 8th to 31st with his R.O.B. due to some inactivity. But not to worry though, Raffi-X is just getting started, making sure that at least one R.O.B. main can try to leave a mark on the ladder.
  • Congrats to burntsocks for currently having an undefeated streak with his character variety of Pit, Snake, and Yoshi!
  • These following players have been dropped from the last update's rankings: [07]Amaterasu Okami, [10]CtL, [13]pkmonftw, [15]joe ST, [18]×MÁR×, [21]BoxxahBrown, [23]LNIAD, [26]BengalsRZ, [27]State Alchemist Roy, [28]ven, [29]MythTrainerInfinity, [32]-Remix-.
  • Top 6 Players with the Most Wins → Atomsk (111), Luckay4Lyphe and psp tie with 84 wins, Jules (63), Zero Heart (59), and judge (58).
  • Top 5 Players with the Highest Win % → burntsocks (1.000), So Fatal (.944), Atomsk (.938), chucknasty (.926), and ADHD (.925).


Doubles:
  • So, it seems 'Flame's team' and 'Murakasa baby!' have currently switched positions from the last update while 'BEND OVER CAUSE WE ARE GOING TO **** YOU IN THE *** icon_wink' are maintaining their 2nd place position. 'Flame's team' also remains undefeated with a streak of 20 wins. Nicely done!
  • With a few starting to decay, we have 4 other undefeated teams for this update. Besides 'We both lost to Wolf', 'we r gud', and 'Dat wiimote DI', we now have 'Sunshine Snuggle Brigade~'.
  • Speaking of 'Dat wiimote DI', if you probably didn't catch this, they are currently the only pure mod team on these rankings, representing a double Kirby team! If you try to take 'em on, you have the opportunity to earn a Double Danger badge!
  • These following players have been dropped from the last update's rankings: [09]u mad y, [10]Wasta~Pray, [12]Green Team, [13]Meaty Beasties, and [15]>icon_sad O^O.
  • Top 5 Teams with the Most Wins → 'BEND OVER CAUSE WE ARE GOING TO **** YOU IN THE *** icon_wink' (22), 'Flame's team' (20), 'Muramasa baby!' (18), 'Team Red' (14), and 'Sexy Beasts' (12).


So, the ladder ends on March 31st, which leaves us to having almost exactly 2 months remaining before the playoffs! Not to worry, you guys have plenty of time to get the position you deserve before that happens. Try out the ladder if you haven't and have some fun! It's a great place to experiment with characters, practice, have fun and make new great friends. Remember that there is actually prize money to be won at the end of the ladder season if you make it very far! A lot of people have already started and gotten high up in the ranks with no problem at all. Perhaps one of you can do the same? In the meantime, work hard and keep your flame of competition lighting up! Congrats to the current top 32 players and 16 teams who made it to this first bi-weekly update. We wish you all the best of luck for anyone seeking to be at the top and making it to the playoffs! Until next time, see ya~ :]
I got a chance to talk with the most recent All is Brawl Doubles Ladder champions judge and Raffi-X for an entertaining and informative interview. They managed to secure first place last season with a 30-5 record, and I got to find out just how they pulled that off. I hope you enjoy the interview!

Welcome to the seventh weekly All is Brawl Scavenger Hunt Answers and Winners article. I was really happy with the results from this week. We had a ton of winners, both new and old to AiB Scavenger Hunts, and those who missed out were only short by a point or two. We even had our first week with 5 new winners, so I’m really happy to be given out so many badges this time around. I see people are being more patient when looking over the questions and their answers before submitting anything. Not much else to say this week, and this is my third article I’m writing tonight, so let’s just get to the answers and winners. lol

Whoa... hey there! How's it going, everyone? The 2010 Spring Ladders have finally come to an end not too long ago, and now, the playoffs have arrived! Yes, we sincerely apologize for closing the ladders about 2 days late due to Neal having some real-life matters. Anyway, we would like to congratulate our champion of the singles ladder, Anti; and the champions of the doubles ladder, Raffi-X and judge of team "Victorious"! Great job to you guys for making it to the top! Of course, determined by rank, badges will be given out momentarily to these champions as well as to those who made it to the top 64 in singles and top 32 in doubles, but I would like to re-cap on those badges that are distributed.

Singles:
  • 1st Place → 2010 Spring Ladder Champion

Mostly applying to the singles ladder, for all those who finished in the top 8 will be given invitations to the AllisBrawl Pro Lounge, and the top 3 will have beach balls made with their name on it. Lastly, the top 4 players and top 2 teams will receive first round byes as they participate in the playoffs. We had 2,789 players on the singles ladder; and 499 teams (998 players) on the doubles ladder! Though there were more players and teams during the last ladder season, this was still somewhat of a heavy competition, wasn't it?

Let's check out the statistics for both ladders!

Closure / Playoffs Info

These players and teams listed above (who are in the top 60 in singles and top 32 in doubles) have made it to the playoffs, and will be competing for over a total of $520 in prize money. Information for the playoffs will be thoroughly elaborated and posted sometime very soon, so please keep an eye out! Also, just to put in a few reminders, it is mandatory for all participants to be on time for their matches and to send PMs of their results to their respective hosts (which is Enrish for both singles and doubles)! If for some reason some of you cannot make it to the scheduled times, then you should send a PM to your host and your opponent about your situation. To conclude this, we congratulate every participant once more for making it this far! We wish you all the best of luck! Have fun~! :3
Greetings young and old, uncool and cool, hobos with laptops at a café, and any other people I didn’t mention! This is the fourth edition of “Who’s That User?”, and I am Invinciboy, a user whose classification doesn’t qualify with any of the ones listed above or the others I didn’t name. Speaking of users, we have quite a few to list and one to guess today…shall we get started? This was a rhetorical question, by the way, so to those that said no…TOO BAD, I’M STARTING!

So, who was last week’s user? *dramatic pause* It’s NachtAlec! He joined on February 28, 2010, mains Marth, has three tournament ribbons in his medal case, and rooted for Team USA during the recent World Cup (according to this and that). A big shock was that only three users (lightlanayru, Raffi-X, and RiotousJ) were able to guess the name and answer ALL of the questions correctly. Some of you got the name right and missed the last question. However, most users guessed the first or second name they saw in the group, which was wrong. I hope you all learned that the first user you see isn’t always the right answer.

And with that lovely life lesson, let’s review the rules and get the next guessing game going!

1. I will give you all an interesting fact about a particular user. 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!


All right. With all of the rules said and done, it looks like we’re all set to start the greatest game of all time! (An exaggeration, I know… >XP)

This user’s favorite sport is skiing. He/she loved to shred the slopes of Utah so much that his/her parents almost signed him/her up for advanced ski classes. Unfortunately, this user moved before the snow could come again, so he/she never got a chance to dare the black diamond slopes. I bet he/she could’ve competed in the Winter Olympics if his/her parents didn’t force a move, but it looks like that day got put on hold…maybe a permanent one. Speaking of Winter Olympics, this user got to see the torch runner for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City as he dashed by the dentist’s office this user was in at the time. That right there would be enough to make anyone’s jaw drop wide, which makes the dentist’s job so much easier if someone else was in the same situation. He/she also got to see the practice opening ceremony, which was dubbed by this user to be one of the coolest experiences of his/her life.

In addition to the fact above, this user:
-is in the group Smashing since N64 (pages 1-27).
-has an “e” somewhere in his/her username or location.
-has a friend code on his/her profile in which all of the numbers make a sum of 52.
-mains an F tier character.

And the questions you need to answer about this user are as follows:
1. When did this user join the site?
2. In this user’s opinion, what are the best Xbox 360 games ever?
3. How many tournaments has this user been to?
4. What Pokemon did the DragonflyCave quiz say that this user was?

So tell me…WHO’S THAT USER?! Good luck to all, use your time wisely, and pay attention to the clues/questions! Oh, and a special shoutout to Sumer for making a WTU-related question in his scavenger hunt. You’re awesome, bro! ^^

By the way, if you want to try to be featured in an article of “Who’s That User?”, just send me a PM with a cool, unique thing about yourself that possibly no one knows about you. However, just make sure this thing can’t be found anywhere on your profile (About Me, videos, blogs, tournaments, etc.) There’s no guarantee that you’ll be chosen, but if the random name picker I’ll use selects your name, you shall receive the WTU Featured User badge (as long as you don’t say anything to the other users)! The deadline to send is midnight Friday (PST), so what are you waiting for? Send in for play, and maybe get featured one day! ^^ (Note: those that already sent in something do not need to resend.)
Welcome to the sixth weekly All is Brawl Scavenger Hunt Answers and Winners article. I tried making this set of questions easier than the last one, but not by too much, and I’m glad to see it showed in the results. Unfortunately we didn’t have five new winners this week, but we did have two members get all the questions correct. We also had out first ever winner get all eleven questions, with the inclusion of the bonus question, correct. We had a lot of 9s and some 8s as well. Some people were very close, but it seems like they rushed it again, and barely missed a perfect 10. Just remember to take your time and re-read your answers and the questions before submitting next time. ^^
