Sorry I didn't get to post this weekend; I was pretty busy. Anyway, I'll post the info here, and in the original post:

DATE: Sunday, April 26
TIME: 2pm, Eastern
WHAT IS IT: Mario Kart Tournament! Series of 3 GPs. (Please only sign up if you plan to race all 3!)
SPECIAL RULES: None, this time. But try not to vote for courses we've already played.
MY FRIEND CODE: 1590 5083 2099

Make sure you add MY FRIEND CODE, and leave yours on this thread as well. If there is a lot of interest, I'll host others in the future, with special rules or conditions to keep things lively.

To play, just connect to the internet via Mario Kart Wii a few minutes before the start time. When you see that I am online with an available room, select my avatar and choose the option to JOIN ROOM. The race will begin about 5 minutes after the scheduled start time, in case anyone shows up late.


ORIGINAL POST:
Just wondering if there would be any interest among forum members to set up a Mario Kart Tournament. I used to run a few back when the game first came out, usually specifying certain conditions to keep the games interesting and get people out of their comfort zones. (Retro tracks only, race as your Mii, must be Koopa Troopa, or others...)

Would anyone be up for something like this? It'd have to be on a weekend, but I'll be happy to set it up.

EDIT: If you're interested, leave your friend code below!

And make sure you add mine. It's: 1590 5083 2099

It might be too late to get people for this weekend, but maybe next?

Awesome, Alex. Post your friend code when you get a chance and I'll add you. Add me, too...I've edited my first post so that it has my friend code. It's been a while since I played so you're all lucky; I used to be good...now I'm probably utter crap.

I heart the kart. I haven't played in a while either, so I probably suck now too. My code is 3953-0959-0251. I'll be able to participate probably if it's later Sunday afternoon or evening when I have nothing better to do but dread going to work the next day. Can't really say if/when I'd be free the rest of the weekend.

Wow, I was just going to make sa topic like this. So I would love to. Just a thought, but how about a 500 wii point entry fee, to make it interesting? 80% of total could be gifted to first place, 2nd place 15%, 3rd place get their money back, whatever?

If that is a deal breaker, thats fine, I will play whatever the conditions.

My FC is 3909-8624-8532.

Hardcore, casual = marketing. The real divide is between arcade and narrative games.

I'll add you all this weekend...don't forget to add me!

I was thinking next Sunday might work best; is that good for everyone else? We'll do a series of 3 GPs, probably no crazy rules this time. (In the future though we'll do some fun ones. :) )

@eugenewrayburn:
Ooh, a gamble, huh? Maybe sometime. :) It DOES sound like a way to make it more interesting, but I wouldn't want people to decide not to join in based on that. I'll probably end up keeping my tourneys free, but if you wanted to set up something similar for points, I'd possibly be interested in joining you.

I agree, I do not want to turn others off either. We shall se how it goes, and go from there. I am no ringer, btw, but I can compete ok. And I am all for next Sunday, gives ppl a chance to make time for it.

I'll try and join. Next sunday is good for me, as far as i know. I've added you Chicken Brutus.

Also, not that I'm in favour of the proposed betting system but how would you gift 500 points without having to convert stars, which NA doesn't have? It wouldn't work.

Let me know when and I'll most certainly try my best to be there. No way am I betting any Wii points though. I've too many times suffered from terrible "accidents" on this game that frusterated me to no end.

Sounds like you guys are quite enthusiastic about this. Maybe try and get some set structure to it; sounds like a great community building event. I might even pop in (once I get a moment's free time!)

I'll update this thread sometime tomorrow (hopefully!) with date/time info. I'm very glad to see the interest from you guys!

ALSO: To participate, you only have to add my friend code! You do NOT need to add everyone's. You can, of course, but it's not necessary for this. If I host the room, I'm the only one you need on your roster.

I hate blue shells.
Matter of fact, I run over blue turtles so their shells can't be used against me in Mario Kart.
