    MKDS/Tetris
    For the first week we will have two tourneys. They will start at 5:00 EST. MKDS will be on Wednesday the 19th and Tetris on Thursday the 20th.
    This is so we can figure out how many people will show.To keep it better organized, please post which event you will be at so that I can match you up with someone else beforehand.
    There will be a lot of fussing about snaking, I want you to know that it is NOT ALLOWED. If you feel like you cannot play without snaking, then please do not come.

    People attending Tetris tourney (now on the 20th):

    Na i hate the rule about "No snaking", its not hacking or cheating , its tactics and skill!, its way more fun or else all you do i slowly drive at 10 kms per hour!

    For every person who likes snaking, theres at least one other person who dislikes snaking.

    No, it's not a cheat. No, it's not a hack. It's still clearly not how the game developers intended for the game to be played. I do it a lot in random WiFi matches (because really, you kinda have to if you want to win)

    But the truth is everybody who can snake can race just as well without it. If we allow snaking, the result is only those who snake will have a chance at winning, and everybody else might not even sign up. The result? Low participation. This rule levels the playing ground and gives everybody a fair shot at competing.

    Now, if these tournaments get extremely competitive (high participation + good sportsmanship), rule changes may be possible in the future to spice things up, but for now it's best that we disallow snaking.

    BTW, whats snaking?


    Edit: Found out what snaking is.

    How many power-slide mini-turbo's does it take to be considered snaking?!?
