    Round 2 will be postponed until the 10th of next month, due to recent events. I'm sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, but hey, at least you'll have this time to practice. Feel free to practice in the gbatemp practice community!

    Question... is there a rule against glitching? Kind of important right now

    (I hope there is :x)

    Unless there's a new one I'm unaware of, all of the exploits are patched.

    Even if they weren't, there's not much I can do about it unless the majority of the group reports the offender in question.

    Yes there was a new one found just yesterday. Somewhere inbetween Wuhu Island Loop and Wuhu Mountain Loop in how much time it saves. Thats what made me ask.

    Even though it saves 14-15 seconds (over the entire 3 laps), it seems that you need an extremely small hitbox to make it work...so far, the only combos I know of that have successfully performed this glitch are Featherweight/Koopa Clown/(any tire but Monster/Red Monster), which makes it mostly irrelevant for online gameplay. Personally, I've not seen people using Featherweight/Koopa Clown online much, and I doubt people would change combo on the off chance of getting to do this one shortcut.

    Obviously, this is just speculation on my part and could be completely wrong as people experiment further and get it to work with more combos, but at least for now I'd say it's mostly a non-issue.

    Imagine if it comes down to a 1v1 (most likely towards the end of the tournament) and your opponent picks that combo and spams rDC, and you have a combo that can't do it. If it gets picked so much as 2 or 3 times you're pretty much screwed..

    I don't even know if my power will be restored until then, thanks Sandy.

    You're right that it is a possibility (a slim one, but it exists nonetheless). I was more just playing devil's advocate, personally I think it should be disallowed as well.

    Also, some asshole found another combo possibility for it (a decent featherweight combo for actual gameplay...)

    Thread stickied for greater visibilty.

    And no, I'm sorry, we have postponed the tourney enough as it is. It cannot be postponed any further.

    Can we get a ruling on whether or not the newly found Daisy Cruiser glitch is allowed?

    Also, what's the easiest way to get into the irc room? I noticed the direct link wasn't working (from the thread in the MK7 tourney forum).

    In light of that new exploit, one that looks like could be done rather easily, Daisy Cruiser is off limits. Anyone picking Daisy Cruiser will be disqualified from this round and any round until the end of the tourney. This will also be specified in the group threads, so there should be no excuses for not knowing this new rule.

    Well, Daisy Cruiser itself doesn't have to be banned, does it? As long as no one is using the shortcut, it should still be fine to play normally :)

    Is the IRC still active?

    There would be no way for me to police who does and does not use the exploit, so banning the track altogether is the best option.

    And yes, IRC is still up.

    I know in my first round, most of us were picking random every time, and I would expect that trend to continue. If Daisy Cruiser comes up, I think it's easiest to leave it up to the players to call out anyone who uses it, then just disqualify that participant. It's no different than how Maka Wuhu, Wuhu Loop, and Bowser Castle 1 were, pre-patch...it's pretty obvious if anyone uses it, so if all players point out someone using it, then the matter should be settled.

    What is the server for IRC, and what is the main channel?
