Little late, sorry about that!

Round 1: Mario Kart Stadium Results!


Had a few racers get grouped together, but Ninja Squid is the one that pulls ahead for the first round!
Roserade did not send in a time and is disqualified (though he dropped out close to before the round ended, so), which means Kirbyo can still move on.

Now it is time for Round 2! The next race will take place on Excitebike Arena! Please get your times in before or you will be disqualified!

How do you get a time under two minutes on MK Stadium? Also, he forgot my 2:05:338, but I don't think it would've made a difference anyways.
Some things you can do are take turns tightly in favor of boost pads, use the big curve before the jump to build up a purple drift boost, and then after the jump I used a mushroom to cut through the warp pipes on the left.

Well, I've never been able to get one. Wait... IS THAT A SETTING?!?

It's not really a setting, but rather a gameplay moveset in Mario Kart. Are you doing stuff like this when you turn into a curve (look at the gif below)? Look at the blue sparks close to the tires in the gif below, they turn orange, and then purple after a while as long as you are drifting. You do this by holding the "R" or "ZR" button, then by releasing it once you get sparks, you get a boost (and the longer you were drifting, the better your boost will be). This will help you go faster.

I don't mean to intrude, but to add onto this since Kirbyo asked about "settings" involved here, if I remember correctly, you do have to turn off smart steering to get to the third-tier (purple flames), in case you were using that.

But the lower tiers should be accessible with any settings.

Smart steering and auto acceleration are probably not going to help you here in the tournament. They're not banned, but they don't seem helpful given their restrictions.

That said, if you manage to win a round using those, good job lol

Are you playing on Grand Prix mode or Time Trial mode?

Because, while I'm playing on Time Trial, the smart steering option is actually unavailable, or I am doing something wrong?

In any case, in Grand Prix, you can do like fanta just said, or press +/- on the vehicle parts selection screen as well, and press the "L" button.

Races will be the standard 150cc.
Maybe I should play Time Trials more to understand how Time Trials work. At least I'm not hosting a tournament for it or anything.

Heyo. All times have been submitted, which means someone's going to get the boot. Not in a position to post the full results right now, so they will be displayed at the proper time tomorrow. Use the time to improve if you need to!
