Good day Ladies and Gentlemen. Welcome to the first Mario Kart 8 Tournament during the Mario Awards.
As you may or may not know, I'm Lakituthequick, your host during the Mario Kart festivities.


  • The times of the races will be determined based on the time-zone of the players. It depends on the amount of players how many starting groups and followup races there are.
  • The date planned is 25 to 27 July. (Mario Kart 7 is planned one week earlier, 18 to 20 July.)
  • Every Round and Group will have their own Community, to avoid joining the wrong race at the wrong time.
  • The races will have 150cc, with all items enabled.
  • When selecting a course, always select Random Course. Not doing so may result in a warning or loss of Tokens.
  • Please select/create a Mii with your username or an acronym of it as name, and put that Mii in your profile during races (you don't need to play as a Mii). This allows me and other players to recognize you.
  • I will join each race to act as a referee, but also participate as long as I'm not eliminated myself.
  • There will be prizes to win in Tokens.
  • During racing periods, communication will go through the #AwardsKart chatroom on the DarkMyst IRC service. You can use any chat-client you like, but you can also just go to the chatroom on the Wiki (Special:WebChat), and join #AwardsKart from there (type "/j #AwardsKart", without the quotation marks). The latter is also functional on tablets. There are also smartphone apps around (AndroIRC (Android), IRC999 (iPhone)). If you have troubles with the chatroom, be sure to sent me a message.
  • Fun prohibited unless in possession of a Super Mario Boards premium account.

I'll sign up. I'm going to the beach some time in July, but I don't know when. I may have to drop out.

Re: Mario Kart 8 Tournament

Toadette Time

OK, but my time might have to be very selective depending on my work schedule (or if it's really bad I might just drop out) but I already know that the first day from 5-9 central I won't be here so if my time can be scheduled earlier, that'd be great.

Also, when you say "use that Mii during races", do you mean as the racer in the kart, or as the file? That is, can we play was someone like, say, Luigi?

Use that one in your file. In MK8, you simply select Mii on the select screen, select the correct Mii, then return. The Mii will then be used online. You can use any of the characters.



Also, while I'm at it, there are a lot of question marks at the Sign-ups list in the OP. The people with question marks next to them are kindly asked to provide the information needed to fill it up.

also, furthermore, does the mii's name have to be your username, or can we tell you our mii's name in advance (assuming it's unique?)

wait do we really have to use the mii.

That ruins my whole stat combo.

EDIT: Also I'm from Wisconsin
no because if you rename your miiverse account mii it changes your name within a race, so it's all okay

Exactly, so I don't see why I can't use Toadette. Every time I've played in the tournament I have with my cousins it always displays the name above the character anyway.

EDIT: And even so if we all state our characters before hand, why should it matter?

Re: Mario Kart 8 Tournament

you can use toadette

all you have to do is select your mii during character select, i think, so that it registers your name, but then go back and change your character to whichever one you want
 
Re: Mario Kart 8 Tournament

Let's a-go!

EDIT - Saw the dates, and I will be working in the afternoons (1pm EST is when I work, so no later than 12:30pm EST), so if we can do mornings like last time (where it's around 10am EST), then I can join. That or 9pm EST and later, but I don't think anyone else will want that. I don't want to be a burden on anyone with planning times or stuff though.
