Core 'Shroom Staff
Hello there ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the second Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Battle tournament!
I am your host for the season, 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 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.
Which Battles Modes will be used?
The following modes will be used: Shine Thief, Balloon Battle, Coin Runners and Bob-omb Blast, 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, Bob-omb Blast 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.
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 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?
