Greetings everyone! I am Alex95, and welcome to the second annual Mario Kart Time Trials tournament! For those that didn't play or don't know of the Mario Kart 64 Time Trials tournament that happened last year, basically you're trying to get the best time in Time Trials over your opponents. No internet connection involved! As determined by voting in this thread, we will be playing



RULES
  • This will be a single elimination game. The person with the slowest time will be dropped from the tournament. Use your Mushrooms wisely.
  • I will select a course for us to race on at random. You must then try to get the fastest time on this course. Every course needs to be available, including retro courses.
  • Despite the above, the first course will be Toad Circuit and the last course will be 3DS Rainbow Road.
  • You are able to race the course as many times as you feel needed until you have a time you are satisfied with. Once you have a time, send proof of it to me (stream, photo, etc.) via board PM, Discord DM, or email, down to the millisecond.
  • You have a week to get in a time. If you don't send a time in by the end of the week, you will be disqualified. If this happens, the person with the slowest time sent in can still move on.
  • Times from before the tournament will not count! Only times raced during the tournament will be accepted.
  • The next race will start a week from when the last race started, regardless of when everyone sent in a time (so I don't overwhelm people in other tournaments).
  • How many races we do depends on the number of participants, including myself.
  • Last person remaining wins!

Limitations
  • Any version of this game is acceptable. English, Japanese, emulations, etc. So long as the game runs and is a perfect or near-perfect copy.
  • Cheats, hacks, and mods are not allowed. Glitches and race exploits (Wuhu Island skip, Bowser Castle 1 skip, etc.) are also not allowed, but intended race shortcuts are.
  • If there are any ties for last place, the person moving on will be decided by a coin flip, die roll, or something similar.

How do you partake in this tournament? Just post something in this thread signifying your interest, let me know what version you will be using, and then keep an eye on here for updates! Times will be posted after a week and then the next race will start.

The tournament will start on June 17th, so the Monday after E3, and will likely go into late July/early August depending on participants.

If you would also like to partake in an online Mario Kart tournament, do check out Lakituthequick's Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tournament once that's up!

Signing up! North American Version.

Also which Rainbow Road? There is the 3DS Rainbow Road and the SNES Rainbow Road.
I don't have time to give you a ride, I am managing a space station. And ask me something here:www.marioboards.com/index.php?topic=38633.msg1934343#msg1934343

LTQ holds polls in his tourneys to decide, so I expect that it'll be similar here.

And unfortunately, I can't sign up.  Really wish I could, but my 3DS is busted and I don't think I can get a new one by the sign-up deadline.  Sorry!

The 3DS one, the one simply called "Rainbow Road". SNES Rainbow Road will be part of the random choices.

And unfortunately, I can't sign up.  Really wish I could, but my 3DS is busted and I don't think I can get a new one by the sign-up deadline.  Sorry!

That's too bad. Maybe you can use someone else's, if there is another in your house?

Three of my siblings have 3DSs, but I doubt I'll be able to use them frequently enough to play this.  Perhaps I could use an emulator, but I'm not sure if it will run at a playable speed and keyboard controls suck.

Best case scenario, I can round up more money so I can buy a $60 2DS before mid-June.  But I'm afraid that's not too likely.

Time to start your engines! The Mario Kart 7 Time Trials Tournament begins now!

As mentioned in the opening post, the first race takes place on Toad Circuit! Be sure to send in proof of your times by Sunday!

EDIT: Realized I forgot to mention only times meant for this tournament will count! Older times will not be accepted.
