Woah, what are you trying to say Ape? I'm not good enough? :lol:
Of course not, I'm Batman...

...Yeah, not quite as good with only two player controlled racers. If one of them has a really bad day then chances are the other goes on to win the race easily, I don't think there were that many times where we were directly racing with each other.

Can't seem to find the post list for SONM Weekly on the web version of Miiverse, so I'm assuming it's Wii U only.

Pretty sure I've never posted to the tournaments miiverse page. Don't think we were directly racing either, not for long anyway, I had a couple of shocking races tonight.

I absolutely promise myself to get on next week. The 32 races is going to be awesome.
As for the racing tonight, it sounds like a good time was had.

Question: will this be restarted with the release of MK8 Deluxe, or will it just continue? Or will there be separate leagues for the Wii U and Switch?
PM me if you decide to add me on 3DS or Wii U

I don't think separating them would much good considering we barely get more than three people a week.
Think it was stated some time ago that if enough people get Deluxe there might be one or two weeks where it goes to that version, and see what happens after.

I'm certainly not getting it on Switch unless there's some discount for wii u owners, so I think we'll keep deluxe for themed nights, maybe those when I can't make it.

I've long since sold my copy so I won't be able to join. But I might be able to borrow my cousins copy for the day. I'll see what I can do.
I am the reason, the answer and the problem.

Might have to give this a miss, going to the cinema with friends on the day so a good chunk of it I will likely miss depending on the start time.

I'll try and make it if I can though.

I'll definitely jump on at some point, probably won't be for the full 4 hours though.

Yeah, provided you get 32 races that's fine, even getting less will be fine too but you're obviously less likely to top the overall leader board

Doubt I'll be topping the leaderboard anyway to be honest.

Evening folks, the results of last night's event are here.

First of all, a break down of the positions.

Image

The green cells represent the top value, orange second, and red third. I'd also like to take this opportunity to mention that this data is based on notes I was taking last night, so they won't be perfect. A fine example of this is when I seemingly fell asleep as soon as Ape started playing. Sorry Ape, apparantly you were only around for like 10 minutes.

Next up, the totals and averages over the night.

Image

And finally, some other interesting titbits from last night's racing...

Image


Well, that's all folks. We'll be back again next Saturday, those who joined us last night are welcome to join in. I'm thinking of having another one of these evenings again later in the year, but we'll see.

Thanks for playing!

Was a great amount of racing that took place, and I'll be sure to come back next week as well. I was playing using the Gamepad for all 32 official races, then when I jumped in for more, I was using a slightly different way to play.

Image

What you see there is the Gamepad on the arm of a sofa being held with the 3DS stand that came with Kid Icarus as well as a Mario Wii Remote. Was playing using the Hori Gamecube-styled Classic Controller. Only thing I miss about the Switch so far in terms of controllers, though free-hand Joy-Con do serve well.

Sorry, completely forgot to do this, now that I have the Switch and Breath of the Wild, Saturday just happened to be the day I started the first dungeon so the build up to that proved addicting.

I will be on tonight, but maybe not straight away. Doctor Who calls then I have to actually set up the U, but I shouldn't be too late.

Been too busy living in the hype of Star Wars Celebration. I'll certainly make sure I'm on next week. My Wii U is in my room ready and waiting.

Timing was rather inconvenient for me last night what with a late dinner and Doctor Who to watch.

I'll try and make it for the last Wii U session before Deluxe comes out but I can't guarantee I'll be on.

SONM Weekly
Tournament Code - 0130-1541-2563

Rules
- 150cc Grand Prix
- 16 Races
- Both DLC Packs
- No Restrictions

Come chat with us!

Time to back out on the track? We're back in action at the usual time tomorrow night at 2030, which gives us plenty of time to watch Doctor Who as well. Best of both worlds, right?

Due to timings I never watch Doctor Who live, so I might have to miss the final Wii U session of Mario Kart 8 unfortunately.

If so, what little time I did play was fun. I assume from next week onwards these will be on the Switch version instead since that comes out next Friday.

After the complete turkey shoot that last match of Battlefront became, I need to get some racing done.
Swapping online with my Wii U, then joining at 20:30.

The Wii U version of Mario Kart 8 is still the hub for this thing, even once Deluxe is out.
