Brawl Tournament Winners!!

This is probably the most important information we’ve posted to the blog all summer and I’m ashamed to say it’s taken me longer than it should have to get it up here!

Saturday, August 2, was the first Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tournament in our video game tournament season. The season runs from August to December, with December’s tournament being a Grand Championship competition between all the monthly winners.

We had 22 competitors on Saturday! 32 people originally signed up to compete, but not everyone showed up Saturday morning. Keep this in mind in case you forget to sign up for September’s tournament–you might be able to play as a walk-in if someone doesn’t show up!

The competition was fierce and the Teen Room was louder than it has ever been. I’m sure people browsing the Nonfiction shelves upstairs could probably hear us through the floor :p

A lot of people who played in Saturday’s tournament have met Sephi. She had been working diligently to unlock all levels and characters on our two copies of Brawl for the tournament. Many of you got a chance to play against her and help her unlock items. A lot of you thought she was going to take home first prize.

Ready to hear which 16 players get to move to the next round.

Out of the 22 players, 16 moved on to the one-on-one final elimination rounds. There was an upset and Sephi didn’t dominate.

The final standings are as follows:

3rd Place: Sephi

2nd Place: The Chosen One

1st Place: David K.

These players will not be eligible to participate in the next 3 tournaments. This gives everyone else a chance to place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and compete in the December Grand Championship Tournament! Stop by the Teen Desk to register. We’ll have more details for you soon of how the September tournament will be run. And yes, you can bring your own Wii-mote/Nunchuk/Game Cube controller!
