Ladies and Gentlemen! Welcome to the first ever Awards Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Battle Tournament!

We are your hosts, Freakworld and Lakituthequick!

So how will this tournament go?
Battles 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 2 to 4.

When will this happen?
Currently, the planning for the MK8 tournaments to happen is from 1 to 21 July, with the regular tournament first and the battle one after that. When specific people battle is to be determined, also with availability and flexibility of the participants in mind. You will receive a survey several weeks prior to the event.

Which Battles Modes will be used?
The following modes will be used: Coin Runners, Bob-omb Blast, Shine Thief and Balloon Battle, in that order. One mode is used per round, so everyone in the same round will have the same mode. That means that if there are three rounds, including finals, Balloon Battle will not appear this year.

I'm missing Renegade Roundup.
Good observation. Renegade Roundup is the oddball because it requires teams, as well as having a scoring system that gives The Law an advantage even if The Renegades win.

What are the battle rules?
Battles will be without teams, with Normal Items. Rounds will be 4 minutes. On the course selection screen, you shall only choose for Random Course.

How do we communicate during the battles?
During battles, 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.
Freakworld or LTQ will be in all battles 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.

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).

That is because those things don't identify timezones by abbreviation, because those vary depending on the season. For the East cost of the US, New York is usually used instead to identify the zone, as that will take daylight savings into account.

I tried entering New York and variations of it, based on what the URLs of the other user images had for time zone but EST was the only one that came close, the rest defaulted to UTC :P

You can find it somewhere in your system information I believe, or you can see it in your user page. I forgot where specifically, but it should be there.
