Core 'Shroom Staff
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).
