SONM Weekly - Racing Saturday! 0130-1541-2563

SONM Weekly
SONM's Weekly Mario Kart 8 Races!
Welcome to SONM Weekly! Here, we race Mario Kart 8 on a weekly basis (if you hadn't already guessed). Occasionally we have themed nights, but for the most part it's every man for themselves.

How can I join in?
-All you need is a copy of Mario Kart 8, and both packs of DLC. If you don't have both DLC packs, keep your eyes open for the weeks we play the original 32 tracks, as you'll be able to join then.
-Obviously you'll also need the tournament code, which is 0130-1541-2563.
-We race on a Saturday evening, between 2030 and 2200, however this could change on a weekly basis, so keep your eyes peeled on the thread for details of that Week's racing.


What's in it for me?
- After each night, a winner for that evening will be announced. That winner will receive endless glory, the title of "Weekly Champion", £10,000*, and the added pressure of doing well the following week.
- After each night, I'll also tally up everyone's scores and add them to a running total. At the end of the year, the overall winner will be announced, and they'll receive some prizes that might actually be worth something.

That's all for now. Be sure to check out the thread each week for details of our race night. Have fun!

I need a reason to get back into MK 8 so count me in! Hopefully this gets traction and more people join in.

I'm free pretty much every night this week, can't say I'll be able to play every week as my shifts are all over the place and recently I've not been getting them till relatively late which isn't exactly ideal for organising anything, so if it's ok I'll probably just join in when I can?

I've not played it in a while either so it'd be a good way to get back into it.

Would love to do this too, Saturday or Sunday work work best for a weekly thing. Haven't played MK for a while, would be nice to get back into it.

I'm game. Friday or Saturday would be best, but if it's not too late a time I'm sure any night would suit.
If this can get up and running, I'm sure it'll be very fun.

Sure, just whenever you can is fine.

Looks like the weekend is the most popular time, I'm happy to go for Saturday nights, my only worry is Saturday night TV does distract me occasionally, but we do have Sundays and we can switch around some weeks if we absolutely need to.

I was also thinking we could do some themed weeks occasionaly (eg, everyone plays as the same character/Retro only tracks ect). Doesn't have to be every week, just once in a while to shake things up. What does everyone think?

Some themed races sound fun

Not that I can really commit to playing any of these, especially on a Saturday. But I hope this does take off!

Toad Nation Racing.
Everyone as Toad on Toad themed tracks. Even if there's only two...

Yeah, themed weeks sound great.

What's everyone's status with DLC? Do we all have both packs or are we better just racing with the original tracks?

Themed races do sound pretty good actually.

As for DLC I've got both packs, imagine I'll be very rusty on all the tracks though. Whether I can make it this weekend depends what time we start, I know F1 is on in the evening (between 17:00-19:30 rings a bell but I can't say for certain) and F1 kind of takes priority for me when it's on.

We could go for maybe 8 to 9:30 on the Saturday night if that would work?

Poll updated for DLC.

I also have the DLC. Themed races sound good too.

9:30 would work for me I think, I don't usually do things on a Saturday night.

Typically as soon as we start organising this Mario Kart 8.5 footage released thanks Nintendo.

Looks like DLC is a goer, I'll create the tournement and pop back with the exact details tomorrow. Get practicing!

Hopefully I should be good to play tomorrow evening, my results will probably be the same if I practice or not though!

We should set up a discord for easier communication during these races.

That's a good shout, might be best if someone else created it as I'm not incredibly familiar with Discord.

Im not familiar with Discord either. Saying that just seen the time you've put to play between, might not be able to make it this week as I'll be busy until just after 8 ish tomorrow, so unless I can join half way through but that might mess all the scores up and I can't even remember if you can do that on Mario Kart 8.

I should be able to get a discord up and running easily.
In fact, have one right now.

I finish work at 7. Sometimes get let off early so I should be able to make it. But I do vote for starting a bit later so everyone gets a chance to join.

DR the link sends me to the homepage? Did you properly finish setting it up?

We can shift it to 2030 - 2200 if that's easier for everyone to make?
