It's hard to believe another season has come and gone. I feel like it was just a few weeks ago that I was putting together the Winter Playoffs. Speaking of which, there are still some unresolved things from those Winter Playoffs, huh? Badges and other prizes still haven't been given out. Well I'm here today to provide you guys with some info on what's going to happen with that, as well as provide some info on this season's playoffs.

Let's start with the unresolved issues from the Winter Playoffs. Cash prizes which are due to the top two singles placings (Nairo and CT ZeRo), and top two doubles teams (Sanoscy & Patg and Legit & The ViRu5), can only come from JV, so I will do my best to get a hold of him ASAP. Hopefully you'll hear from either him or myself about that soon.

As for badges, I will get those created and handed out hopefully by tonight. If for some reason that doesn't happen, you'll have them tomorrow at the latest. Also, if you guys recall, we changed up how badges are earned in playoffs. After listening to the dissatisfied opinions of many of you, I've decided to revert badge earning back to how it was before. So, badges for the Winter season, this season, and future seasons will all be based on your final ladder placing at the close of the season, and NOT how well you placed during playoffs itself.

On a final note for badges, the Winter Ladder badges are the final ones in which the classic blue/silver name colors can be earned. This season's badges will sport all new name colors. There are now six new name colors available to be earned via your ladder placing. I'll post more information on that in a future article containing information mainly for this season's playoffs. Lastly on this topic, the classic colors may be gone, but you might have another chance at one of them in the future.

With badges and cash prizes covered for the Winter Playoffs, let's go ahead and move onto this season's playoffs. The Spring '13 Ladder is set to end tonight! I will be taking screenshots of the ladder placings at 12:00 AM PST. The scores and placings reflected in those screenshots will be used to determine playoffs eligibility, and any matches occurring after the screenshot is taken will be invalidated, even if they had been opened prior to the deadline. There are still a few hours remaining for this season, so nothing is set in stone yet!

I'm hoping to kick off this season's playoffs early next week. I still have a few things to get ready before that, but it'll work out fine. I'll release another article next week to kick off playoffs. The article will include the Round One Brackets, additional information regarding some of the newer prizes, and information regarding the two trial ladders we implemented this season.

So with that, I'll see you all next week! This is Linkz signing off!

PS: if at any point you have any questions or suggestions regarding ladder or playoffs, please feel free to contact me directly! I'll be a lot more helpful if you talk to me in person, rather than if you try to go through a third person (another staff member for example). Being the Head of Ladder, I'll pretty much be able to answer any question you have. Don't be afraid to approach me guys.
Hiya, AiB! Well, it is that time again. While it has been awhile since I last whipped up an article, it is my turn to bring you the next ladder update for this season! Hopefully, this will be an attempt to keep the content alive. Let's see how things go for this week!

And just to let you know, if there are any corrections to fix here, please let me know and it'll be fixed asap. Your character mains are based on what's given via your profile and ladder feedback. Lastly, if you have any ladder matches to show off on, you can PM your video links to me, Mocha, Minty Pony, or Invinciboy.

Notes


(Notes? All I see here is Meta Knight EVERYWHERE! lol xD Though in all seriousness...)

Singles:
- It seems anyone STILL has yet to hunt down Ally and ANTi, as they are marvelouslly obtaining their undefeated winning streaks despite their inactivity.
- An unranked player from the last update, _Quest_, currently has the most wins, using mostly Toon Link and Marth.
- Meanwhile, Lucas is still rarely seen, and M to the Ekos is representing him hardcore. He is currently placing 12th at this time. Will he keep going?
- Also sneaking up in the rankings is Kain with his Wolf, as he is placing 24th.

Doubles:
- Otori + Kakera are still maintaining their first place position. Who will snag the top of the ladder from them?
- It is such a rare case to see Zelda in these rankings!  Props to her and Diska, as they are continuing to push further up.
- The rankings pretty much lack variety, so there is not much else to note.

Just a reminder that this season's ladder will close on March 31st, so time's a-tickin'. Catch up and maintain your scores when you can. And if you haven't joined the ladder yet, you should join inf you want to show off some skills! Congratulations to those who have made it in this bi-weekly update. I hope you all have a good day today! Until next time, see ya~
Hello, AiB! It's been awhile since I've written a ladder article for the site, but I've recently received a request to write another article - so it looks like I'll be alternating with lightlanayru, Invinciboy, and Minty Horse. I've taken the time to make sure the scores/rankings/characters are as accurate as possible. If I missed any character someone used, please let me know. It also helps to have pointers on signatures, ladder feedback, and profile as to the character that was used in ladder. 

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.

Side-note: These top rankings have been taken on 8:00 pm CST on Saturday [02/25/12].

Notes

Singles: 

- Ally and ANTi with an amazing win streak and no losses so far. How long will they be able to keep their streak? 
- Denti with 128 matches played so far! 
- Sheik, who you rarely hear about in ladder, is sneaking herself in the placings by E.J.
- Uno. with 69 wins. Game and Watch likes lucky numbers... will he maintain it?
- At least 13 Meta Knights are currently at the top of singles ladder.   



Doubles: 

- FOW and MJG lead doubles ladder with their almost unbeatable double Meta Knight team with only one loss so far
- Some random Zelda teleports out of nowhere into doubles ladder with her ma - *ahem* I mean, Snake. Are Mocha and Diska actually Riot and Bizkit in disguise?
- Girl power... lloD and SmashGOD show some femme fatale with their Peach and Samus teams
- Looks like Foxhound has come back to haunt Snake and join him as KyleisReal and MegaFox bring out their Snake and Fox
- Again, at least 13 Meta Knights are currently at the top of doubles ladder.

Remember, 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 upcoming Spring Break everyone (:
Good afternoon, everyone! I'm back with another ladder update to keep all of you followers in check, but before I get into that, let me bring up an important. As if he was Halley's Comet or something, Neal showed up for the first time in 75 years. I found him on AIM and told him to update the ladder rules with everything that was presented during the Road to Apex season, and he did. Make sure you look at the Rules page to see the changes and abide by them, because they will be there until the end of time!

And now, I present to you the current rankings! (Note: these rankings taken from today's stats, at 2:51 PM, and are based on what was used in the past update (with the changes you all mentioned, of course.) If anything still needs to be corrected, let me know with a comment in this article or PM.)

-A good majority of the players seem to be slightly inactive. Be careful not to let yourselves get too far behind the new faces!

Well everyone, that's it for this ladder update. Stay tuned for more developments as they happen, and keep playing to meet the match requirements!
Hello, one and all of All is Brawl! After waiting SOOOOOOO LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG for the next ladder, neal finally emerged from his cave and gave us a new season. Since content, especially ladder content, has been dead lately, I'll kick off the update train to which my cohorts will continue every other week. Let's get started, shall we?

Notes:

-ANTi once again retains a first place position at the early stage of this season. I wonder who will knock him out this time...just kidding. Great work so far!
-ANTi, lloD, NAKAT, flameleon, viva., and _Quest_ all have unbroken streaks. I've never seen that many...and to think there's even more past 32nd! Keep up the good work, all you streakers, and be alert for those that wish to end them!
-Jason sure has gotten busy with those 83 wins and 100+ matches. Maybe he'll go for 200?

Notes:
-
FOW and Childish Gambino have completely left the other competitors in the dust. Then again, it's still early in the season. Perhaps one team will emerge to challenge these behemoths!
-Four teams have unbroken streaks, and oddly enough, two have the same records as another two. Meek/SlayerZ and The Fabulous Demon Lord Ghirahim/kongmetal are at 5-0, and Uli/super beans and Zog/Magma Ace Uno are at 2-0. Whose streak will break first?

Well everyone, that's it for this ladder update. Stay tuned for more developments as they happen!

P.S. Just so you players know...remember those match requirements that were implemented in the Road to Apex ladder? Well, those are here to stay until the end of time. Singles players should have no problem with 30 matches, but Doubles...well, we'll see what happens as it goes. I CAN guarantee, however, that there's absolutely not going to be a repeat of only fourteen teams in playoffs.)

Playoffs are as expected sneaking up on us yet again. After some harsh months of fierce battles and storms, 60 of our finest singles ladder participants and 30 of our best doubles teams are ready and eager to duke it out Vs eachother to show us all who's really the best.

So without further postponing, here are the cold hard facts about how this will get done.


Important pre-words:

It is every players/teams own responsibility to show up in the chats and meet with their opponents at the scheduled time. Failure to do so will put you in risk of being disqualified and thus given a loss for the round in question.
In addition to this, it is also the responsibility of ALL ladder players/teams to send the host of his/her playoffs event a PM about the outcome of the match, right after it gets done. Even if the host is in the singles chat with you. We need to be certain that nothing is overlooked or forgotten. Failure in sending this PM can result in reprimands as stated above.

Bracket images.
The bracket images for each playoffs event will be updated daily. In order to see the latest update you will have to press ctrl+F5 while looking at the brackets. Don't forget this.

Europeans. It is rumored that the sun sets earlier in Europe than in America. This will cause some timezone trouble, so the European players/teams and their opponents will need to schedule a time that will work out for both parts. So watch out for Euros!
