Thanks to our friends at the Official Nintendo UK Online Store we held another Mario Kart 8 tournament yesterday; we changed things slightly by increasing the number of races from 12 to 16 and reducing the number of hours from 6 to 4. There was a total of £120 eShop credit up for grabs to our top three racers — competition was close but we can now announce the winners:
Our Top Three:
- Lucy x - 240 points (max)
- Justin3 - 237 points
- John - 234 points
Congratulations to all of them and better luck next time to everybody else. We're aware that a small number of competitors had some issues being disconnected from races; we understand this can be frustrating but unfortunately we depend on the game servers — it's not something we can control.
We're keen to run some more tournaments in the near future and therefore need your help deciding when is best for everyone to compete, hence this rather boring (but essential) poll.

These tournaments have happened thanks to the lovely people at the Official Nintendo UK Online Store, who kindly donated the eShop credit; this is also why we have restricted the tournaments to UK racers only. We hope to run tournaments in other regions in the near future, so watch this space and sign up using the form below!

I said weekends but meant Friday nights because there's no decent football on TV
In my first race I got very cruelly taken out when in 1st place by Justin3. Makes me feel better that they went on to do well.
Congratulations to all 3 of these lucky guys! Nice to see that the score is varied and that they're not all maxed out.
Fully anticipating the next tournament.
What happens in the next tournament if the same three people come top of the board? All's fair?
I came 14th with 213 points, not bad considering it was out of 255 people.
I said this in the email but might as well say again Saturday would see the most amount of people.
the Official Nintendo UK Online Store doesn't even sell eShop credit! so how can they have donated it? You mean Nintendo donated it?
I got about 180pts, and I know I can do better next time! Watch out next time everybody, I'm hurting... Ready for revenge!...
