Hello there ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the fifth Mario Kart 8 tournament, and the first Deluxe one at that!
I am your host for the season, Lakituthequick!

So how will this tournament go?
Races will happen in groups of up to 10 people, depending on the amount of sign-ups. The amount of people that will move on will also be slightly dependant on the sign-ups, but will most likely be 3 or 4.

When will this happen?
Currently, the planning for the MK8D tournaments to happen is from 30 July to 19 August, with the versus tournament first and the battle one after that. When specific people race is to be determined, also with availability and flexibility of the participants in mind. You will receive a survey prior to the event to indicate your availability in this period.

What are the racing rules?
Races will be 150cc, with All Items. On the course selection screen, you shall only choose for Random Course. This does not apply in the ultimate race, where you instead have to choose the Rainbow Road that was predetermined by public vote.

How do we communicate during the races?
During races, you are to join the IRC-chatroom #AwardsKart on DarkMyst. The easiest way to go there if you've never been there before is by going to Special:Webchat on the Wiki, and typing "/j #AwardsKart" once you're there. Don't hesitate to ask for help if needed.
If it so appears that every participant has an account on Discord, I may create a server for this purpose.
I will be in all races to act as referee and note down the results as well.

How do we connect in-game?
While Mario Kart 8 Deluxe does have Tournament functions on its own, we shall not be utilizing those during the tournament. Instead, we will make use of the Friend Room functionality. This allows for more flexibility, longer lobby times and other things.

What happened to the Wii U version?
Statistics have it that the Nintendo Switch version has already sold more units than the Wii U version did. The poll I held in May points out that an equal number of users have the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions, but not all Wii U users also bought the DLC. Deluxe thus offers more users with access to all courses.

I'm interested, how do I sign up?
Very simple, post below with the name on your profile, your friendcode, and your timezone (be mindful of daylight saving times).

The same as mine. If that helps.

But I got a question.

I and TG use the same Switch. So like, do we start out in different groups, and if we meet up, we play on the same Switch but on two player? Is that ok?

Ah, so should be Lebanon. If I so recall correctly, last year you wasn't able to join because Nintendo Network isn't supported there. Is this still a thing or have they changed that in the meantime?

But I got a question.

Yes, if you both have to race at the same time, you can use the online multiplayer. Just make sure you both have Miis with your names so I can distinguish you.

Do not worry about us Ltq...

We tweaked our Nintendo accounts so that we should be able to join in.

I'll let you know when I want to sign up.

If it is 16:51 at your place as of this post, then EDT seems to be correct.

Rats, I was hoping for the Wii U version.  I can make do with the Switch version, but ultimately I would much prefer to play the Wii U version (the Joy-Con are so unresponsive...).  Why don't we hold the tournament on both versions?

Also, I'll be getting the DLC for Wii U once it shows up on My Nintendo.  I'm not signing up just yet, by the way.

You can just play in handheld mode so the Joy-Con can't be wirelessy interfered.

Hosting both would result in hosting like three Mario Kart 8 tournaments, which quite frankly is ridiculous in workload and numbers. I won't stop anyone from hosting a Wii U one though, assuming they get it sanctioned with Anton and Turb.

Oh, that makes sense.  I'll just use handheld mode, then.  Anyway...
