Preliminary Period Complete

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Congratulations to our new Contestants! The end of Phase III marks the conclusion of the Preliminary Period, and we have our full roster of Contestants for the Regular Season. It was a very climactic final round, and we thank you for voting and following our Candidates’ progress throughout the Period.

The League enters a three-week break in preparation for the Regular Season. Contestant profiles are currently being updated. More images and artwork will be available later on. This Regular Season will be unique from previous years, since we have two Divisions.

For all of the Candidates who did not make it this year, we should expect to see many in Exhibition matches throughout the season.

While you wait, consider joining our forum or follow us on Facebook for continued saimoe content during the break.

Also a thank you to our recent donor, spickeri. Thanks again to everyone, and we’ll see you in a few weeks!

New PV and Phase III Preview

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

We had a little bit of fun with a special splash page for our website on April 1. Sorry if you were a bit frightened, but we hope you enjoyed celebrating the ‘holiday’ with the rest of the Internet. If you looked further, we also had a “new” PV featuring anime girls and their love of tuna.

In case you missed it or you want to see it all over again, we have archived that page here:

Now that April 1 is over, we can move forward. The real PV for ISML 2012 is now on our main page. Brackets for Phase III as well as the match preview are also available. Thanks to KholdStare for making great PVs for us year after year! Thanks to melange for the bracket images and great visualizations as always!

Phase III Day 1 will feature Brackets A through H in both divisions. Voting begins in about one week.
