View Full Version : Team MP Mario Kart 8 Tournament

I would like to try to organize a Team MP Mario Kart 8 Tournament. I haven't check into it but I believe you can set up your own tournaments in MK8. If not, we can just try to meet up for some races in general.

I know when we try to plan these things out there is often an issue with time zones, but I think we should at least try.

What days are best for everyone? Would those of us in the States be willing to do it in the morning so those across the pond can race with us and not have to stay up really late or get up really early?

Let's try to get an idea of who may be interested, when they can play, and a possible date. I will look into the tournament creation options in the game tonight.

Personally for me I always have off Saturday and Sundays. I normally stay up at late as 1:00am eastern and people in my house normally wake up around 7:00 eastern, so anytime between 7:00am and 1:00am eastern is likely okay with me, especially since this is a game I can play in front of my kids unlike most FPS.

I would like to start off by saying congrats on sporting the new color blue Borlaxx.

I think it's a good idea to have an MK8 tournament and I'm interested but I don't have the game yet. I have been playing Call of Duty Ghosts and I didn't see the need to get this game and be tempted to switch to MK8. My daughter and son have been talking about the game and I'll pick it up soon.

The tournament mode sounds interesting and although I don't have the game I believe you can see / join friends within the game?

Count me in Borlaxx.

I was downtown today and swung by EBGames (Gamestop) and picked it up. I download New Super Mario Bros U for the free downloadable game :-)

Is anyone else up for the challenge?

May be on tonight, and if I am I'm down to race. Didn't play it last night as I am almost done with Zelda Wind Waker. I may end up playing that again tonight instead.

I quickly checked the tournament settings in the game. You can set to private (I'm assuming you have to know what the password is to get in) and toggle days and weeks. I wonder if you are playing against friendly ghosts if there is no one in there?

I looked into the settings this past weekend and it looks you have to set up a start and end date and time. It allows for adding computer players but you can turn them off. I'm not sure how it works in terms of do we all have to be on at the same time or if we race within the time period for the best overall time. I have a feeling the first go will be a learning experience.

It looks like weekend daytime in the US is the best chance for getting the most on. Unfortunately I will be out of town this coming weekend. If somebody else wants to take the lead and set this up that would be awesome.

I'll take the lead this weekend. Saturday night works best for me and kids go back to mom Friday night. I have the time and I'd rather play some MK than get into trouble ^_~ I'll create a room with times etc and post back here.

If you extended it forward 3 or 4 hours then count me in.

I introduced Team MP a month or so ago, as they had a 4 week period or something before you could promote your clan and plan tournaments.
I have a feeling they have done away with that cooling off period.
But I did get a friendly welcome , although I have a feeling most of the members were yet to grow any hairs of the pubic variety!!!

Don't sweat it about my timings in the Tourney though, as my gaming time is pretty much set between 22:00-02:00 GMT (don't get much time on outside of those hours)

@Stains I'm embarassed about the time zones. I wasn't thinking. I was going the opposite way into the Pacific and not the Atlantic Ocean. I changed the times so it starts @2200 your time and it would start @1500 my time. I'm glad that you can make it.

There was no catching you on that bike of yours on the classic race tracks.
And that little bitch Baby Peach was giving me some serious grief!

I'm happy to hear it worked without a hitch and that you joined. I was a little nervous about something not working right.

Have you tried going back to the main screen, go to MKTV and you should be able to see several tiles of your races. Hit a to get into option menu. You can upload your video to your YouTube account. It takes about 4-5 minutes for me on a 1 meg upstream connection. Although this is the first tourney i have played, the setting or options may not be there. Cheers mate.

I'll be on around 2100 MST.

Playing online compared to playing single player is humbling to say the least. I placed 8 in this match and in another one on Moo Moo Meadows I placed dead last. I was suprised at how many people were cutting through the corners over the grass in almost a straight line and they were ahead of me. I didn't notice their wheels for traction but maybe they were using monster wheels? I thought the friend list was dispappointing at first glance but I didn't understand it because I taught that I couldn't see someone's online status. If someone is playing online or in a tournament you will see a flag and you can click to join them. The Nintendo Life GP was fairly full although I did not notice the times that they are set up. I connected to another one and it was from Monday to Sun and the lobby was empty.

Any suggestions? A suggestion I have for Borlaxx is to leave the tournament open so randoms can join and play with us. It would be nice to be able to put our url in there somewhere on the welcome message but I'm not entirely sure if we can do that. I think it would break some code of conduct with Nintendo. I could always search for other tournaments and compare. Who knows maybe we can make some new friend? It's the first tournament and I can take learning the online portion away from it. Nintendo has made a step in the right direction with MK and it's evolving. I'm enjoying it.

As is stands now, Stains your in the lead followed by Southtown.
