I'm surprised I did quite well, although it helps that this year I am not facing the usual skilled suspects like Cirdec, although Crackin is still super skilled. Still, I am glad I did better compared to the previous two times in 2015 and 2017, where I never gone past the first round.

Thank you for reading.

As for the RRs, N64 is my fav but it's garbage for tournaments because one hit and you can't catch up.
I'm going to back up this statement after that last race. Not even consistent Stars and Goldens helped :P

GGs tho, I was already happy I made it to the finals and stealing 1st with the shortcut at the end of Cheese Land was hype :D

For me, it was stealing first in Piranha Plant Slide, using the shortcut. Upon further observation I noticed that Crackin would have done the same, though I was ahead.

Thank you for reading.

That track seems to always find a way to take away my Mushrooms right before I get there, if not by lightning or a Boo then by a shell hitting me right after activating the boost :P

Also, gotta love the Boo stealing an item that had barely started spinning literally milliseconds after hitting the box. I didn't even know that was possible.

For science, did anyone using a Boo on Piranha Plant Pipeway receive a not-yet finalized item?

I remember getting Boo, but I don't remember the item. I think it was the triple Green Shell. Are you able to check MKTV on this? Assuming you didn't play any more races, you can check the recent replays. I still have it, by the way.

Thank you for reading.

Checking the replay again, it actually wasn't an item being stolen, but rather someone invisible hitting the item box almost the same instant I would have, giving this illusion.

I seem to have a curse when it comes to not making it past the first round in MK VS tournaments. It's happened three times, but only one was actually because of me getting eliminated in the first round. This time it was because I made a mistake when setting my alarm. I enjoyed the race I did do though, and I'm planning on playing again next year and in this year's battle tournament (which the "curse" apparently doesn't apply to). :D 

Also, congrats to the winner(s)!

Thanks again for playing this tournament, and I hope to see you next year!

Considering that Nintendo Switch Online will launch soon and it costs money, I'll reconsider the Wii U version by then. This will involve polls and whatnot, but let's not worry about it yet.
