Yeah, i still have 3 on the list, whom haven't booted up Mario Kart, or haven't added me since they've gotten the game as well.
Other than those 3, i think you'll find some people simply haven't been online yet, or added you guys yet either, but we'll work out who they are and send some messages out before the weeks end, so we can have everyone ok for the league start next week.
I'll be setting up a room in an hour, will wait for Vertabray before starting, will be 5-10 mins tops before i start the first game.
If we got me, Charelle, Bray, Muss, Dan, Beatnik or more that'd be sweet, 6 player is the best number i've found online, not too many blues, while 8-12 can be horrific lol.
If we get an odd number, we'll just have to cope with it i guess, for the team games that is.
I have you Muss. I also have a large number of '?' friends, so I'm waiting for several people to add me as well. After being away from MK for a few days, I just finished a couple of consecutive disastrous WFC races and fell below the 8000 level.
I'll try to make an appearance tonight as playing with friends is always fun, but I'm pretty tired.
I try not to care about losing the points in MK Worldwide, but, it annoys the hell out of me, upon coming 5th, losing like 90+ points, and having to come 1st 4-5 games in a row to get back those points, and sometimes even 2nd i lose a bit of points on lol.
So, i'm happy with friend matches, battle mode, and waiting for the points to start balancing themselves out before losing 200-800 in a few matches on worldwide lol.
Our points don't mean much man, most of them came from winning against scrubs, or losing to them lol, fairly easy to get up to and past the 7000 mark, bit harder to keep it above 8000 though due to all the points you lose atm.
I've also played players 4500-5000, who caned me, so, as i said, doesn't mean much lol.
A calamity of imprecision for me tonight: missing jumps, running into walls, losing control of invisibility, etc. On the whole, the only races I did win I did not deserve. For example, bulleting to the finish line.
It also feels like everyone has improved. Tough competition, it was great. Well done everyone.
Big thanks to all those who turned up tonight, the TEAM BALLOON BATTLES went the most smoothly, being the only times we seemed to have fair teams (3 v 3 both times) and i watched with horror from the split screen in the first battle, as my sister red shelled me to take her team to victory lol. The second one, with me, dan and muss, vs bray, beatnik and big chop, was very one sided, 20-6 over two rounds hehe.
That first GP was sweet, with 7 people, although, both team battles (first one i was in a team of 3 with Chaz and Muss vs 4, and the second one i was in a team of 3 with Bray and Muss vs 2) were just too hard to pull off given how hard it was for the team with the lower numbers.
First team game, was a score of 87-77, not bad for a 4v3, and the second was 67-61, again, not bad for a 3 v 2. All we need is a guaranteed even few matches for some great games overall.
Again, thanks for the turnout guys, had we got everyone at once, would have had some 4v4 matches, maybe next time, or with some luck, a few 5v5s!
EDIT: Yeah, those messages are funny as Muss, but there needs to be less positive ones, we need some "BULLSHIT", "RIPPED OFF" and "FUCKING LUIGIS CIRCUIT" messages in there hehe.
Think also, we can safely say we all had a race or two tonight, where we were shaking heads at the screen in our choices, i had a few shockers, despite placing well in each gp.
Great fun tonight, team GP's will obviously be good fun when we get even teams, although as mentioned already, the underdog did pretty well both times there really. Battle worked well, and the standard GP was really good, i'd like to play more of those, will have to set up another night soon. Anyway, good racing all, very enjoyable.
Edit: Oh, and yes, many 'head shaking' moments tonight armand, seems to be par for the course in this game !
