How
Maybe I should start posting vehicles in the results lol

MK used Jet Star, so perhaps that's a good vehicle to try on this course. (Not that time is based on vehicle alone but still). And since I mentioned that, I might as well tell you that Smasher used Wagon Star and I used Meta Knight, and of course you used Swerve Star.

To be fair I cannot use Swerve Star on pretty much any track and that's apparently one of the best vehicles. So you ain't alone.

Re: Kirby Air Ride Time Attack Tournament - Round 6: Machine Passage

I think it would be fun to post the vehicles used at the end of the tourney as some sort of statistics thing if it isn't too much trouble. Although in between rounds might reveal secrets for what people's tactics are with vehicles lol.

But yeah I used Jet Star. There's a lot of areas to get into the air quickly and frequently. Plus you can just fly over the branching path after the log entirely.

Heh. Maybe that would be a good idea.

I'm new to tournament hosting here so bear with me.

Heh. Just got on the game to get my time, and I realized I skipped over Beanstalk Park. Sorry about that; to clarify, we will race on Beanstalk Park in Round 7.

Additionally, you have less than four hours from the time of this writing to submit your time, so make the most of it!

@Alex95 @Meta Knight @Smasher

I have decided that, since I will be away from home this coming week and will not have much time to run this tournament (I don't know if I'll even have internet), I will be extending this round by a full week, now ending (Sunday, August 18, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT). Thank you for your patience; please put this extra time to good use!

This means our champion is Meta Knight! Congratulations!

This marks the conclusion of the tournament. I've enjoyed hosting this with you all, and while we only had four people by the end of it, it was still fun racing through each track and trying for new records. I'm looking forward to hosting this next year!

Feel free to post your thoughts on this tournament, or share your time sheet (found via Records). Goodbye for now!

Here's all my times with the vehicles. I didn't try very hard on the last round because I would have won no matter my time, but everything else I optimized best I could. For the most part it's fairly versatile. My rule of thumb throughout the tourney was to get a lower time than the lowest possible time attack checkbox, which is another reason I didn't try very hard on the last round because there wasn't a checkbox.

This tournament was pretty good, and was a good way to mark off the checklist when I otherwise wouldn't have. Ggs everyone!
